Welcome to Cook’D, Inc. (“Cook’D,” “us”, “we”, or “our”)! Our website is located at www.Cookdup.com (the Site”).

Terms & Conditions
1. Agreement to Terms
By using our Services, you agree to have read, understand, and agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree to the Terms, you are not authorized to access or otherwise use the Services.
IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING ARBITRATION: WHEN YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS YOU ARE AGREEING (WITH LIMITED EXCEPTION) TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND COOK’D THROUGH BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT. PLEASE REVIEW SECTION 22 “DISPUTE RESOLUTION” BELOW CAREFULLY FOR DETAILS REGARDING ARBITRATION (INCLUDING THE PROCEDURE TO OPT OUT OF ARBITRATION).
3. Our Services
We provide an online marketplace that allow Account holders who prepare home-cooked meals (each, a “Meal”) (“Home Chefs”) to sell such Meals to Account holders who wish to purchase them (“Neighbors”). We do not seal Meals and we are not a party to the transactions between Home Chefs and Neighbors.
We hold quality standards and want to ensure that both the Home Chefs and Neighbors receive the best experience from using our Services. We have a process in place to ensure Home Chefs are in compliance with food safety standards. However, we do not conduct background checks, vet or otherwise verify the identity, integrity, or trustworthiness of Home Chefs or any other users. We also do not guarantee the quality or safety of the Meals provided by Home Chefs, or the ability of Neighbors to pay for the Meals. We encourage you to exercise diligence and caution in all your interactions with other users when using the Services.
You acknowledge and agree that Neighbors and Home Cooks are independent individuals acting on their own accord, at their own expense, through their own resources, and at their own risk.
4. Changes to the Terms or Services
We may update these Terms at any time, at our sole discretion. If we do so, we will let you know either by posting the updated terms on the Site or through other communications. It’s important that you review the Terms whenever we update them or use the Services. If you continue to use the Services after we post the updated Terms, you are agreeing to be bound by the updated Terms. If you don’t agree to be bound by the updated Terms, then, except as otherwise provided in Section 22(f) “Effect of Changes on Arbitration,” you may not use the Services anymore. Because our Services are evolving over time we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Services, at any time and without notice, at our sole discretion.
