If you are enrolled in Verb Flex, we will send you a text message or email depending on the preferred communication channel 1 day before your scheduled Order confirming the details of your Order before your shipment is made. You can respond or log onto the Customer Portal to change the details of each Order and future Orders before your Order is completed, like the types of Products you’d like, how many boxes of Products, whether an Order should be rushed or sent to a new address or whether you will skip a month.

You will remain responsible to pay all applicable charges for all Orders. You agree to provide and keep current a valid payment method.

2.f. Pricing and Availability
All prices shown via the Services are in U.S. dollars. We will collect applicable sales tax on Products shipped to the states for which we determine we have a duty to collect sales tax. If an item is subject to sales tax, you agree that the amount of taxes shown at checkout may be adjusted. Any applicable taxes and other charges, if any, are additional. We reserve the right to change our Product offerings and our Services, and to adjust prices as we may determine in our sole discretion, at any time and without notice. We will not be able to notify you of changes in any applicable taxes prior to such changes becoming effective. We do not guarantee the availability of Products identified on our Site, and we reserve the right to refuse any Order if the applicable Products are not available.
2.g. Shipping and Delivery
You agree to pay any shipping and handling charges shown at the time you make a purchase. We reserve the right to increase, decrease, add or eliminate shipping and handling charges from time to time. We reserve the right to use shipping couriers of our choosing. Actual delivery dates may vary. We cannot guarantee delivery times or condition for Orders if the address is incorrectly entered, if a change of address is not updated prior to a new Order or if an address is altered while in transit. When placing your Order, please enter your shipping address carefully to ensure accuracy. If you enter the shipping address incorrectly when the order is placed, please contact us in the manner described in Section 4 of these Terms immediately for correction. If your Order is returned to us because of an incorrect address provided or refusal of delivery, we reserve the right to charge you for any additional shipping costs and other fees associated with resending your Order.
You are responsible for inspecting all Products you receive from us for any damage or other issues upon delivery. In addition, you are solely responsible for determining the freshness of the Products you receive. You should always inspect your Products upon delivery to confirm that they have not been opened or otherwise damaged. In the unlikely event that Products have been opened or significantly damaged upon delivery or you have any other reasonable justification to believe that any Product in your delivery is not suitable for consumption, contact us immediately in the manner described in Section 4 of these Terms, including photographs of the damaged Products sufficient to understand your concern. We will respond to your message and direct you on what to do next.
From the time of delivery, the condition and consumption of the Products are solely at your risk, and you are solely responsible for the proper and safe handling, storage, use and consumption of the Products following delivery. Failure to follow safe food handling practices may increase the risk of foodborne illness. In addition, pregnant women, young children, the elderly and individuals with compromised immune systems should follow the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s recommendations on food consumption for at-risk groups, which can be found here.
2.h. Returns and Refunds
General Policy: Valid Orders are non-refundable if the Products have been delivered in an undamaged state. If you are not completely satisfied with our Products, please contact us in the manner described in Section 4 of these Terms within seven (7) days of receipt. We will happily review your Order and any reported issues. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to offer you a resolution that may include replacement of the Products in your Order, additional Products or a refund of all or part of the fees paid. Since we are not able to physically access the Products, we may ask that you provide photos of the Products label and damage reported.

THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION ALLOCATE THE RISKS UNDER THESE TERMS BETWEEN YOU AND US, AND WE BOTH HAVE RELIED ON THESE LIMITATIONS IN DETERMINING WHETHER TO ENTER INTO THESE TERMS.

13. DISPUTE RESOLUTION
13.a. Informal Dispute Resolution
For any dispute between you and us, you agree to first contact us and attempt to resolve the dispute informally.
If we have not been able to resolve the dispute informally within thirty (30) days after both parties received notice of the dispute, we both agree to resolve any claim, dispute or controversy arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms by binding arbitration conducted pursuant to the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated (referred to as the “JAMS Rules”), before one (1) neutral arbitrator selected by us and approved by you, and under the rules set forth in these Terms. If there is a conflict between the JAMS Rules and the rules set forth in these Terms, the rules set forth in these Terms will govern. Unless we both agree otherwise, the arbitration will be conducted in the same city as our offices. Each party will be responsible for paying any filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with the JAMS Rules. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitration, along with all filings and decisions, will be confidential except as necessary to enforce the award. ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY.
13.c. Equitable Relief
Nothing in this section shall prevent either party from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts for matters related to data security, intellectual property or unauthorized access to our Services, but we both agree to submit to the jurisdiction of the state and federal courts with jurisdiction over Boston, Massachusetts for all claims involving equitable relief.
14. GENERAL TERMS
We shall not be liable to you or any other party for any delay or failure in performance due to events outside of our reasonable control, including without limitation acts of God, strikes, riots, war, acts of terrorism, fire, epidemics, or delays of common carriers or other circumstances beyond our reasonable control. If any provision of these Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that these Terms will otherwise remain in full force and effect and be enforceable. These Terms, together with any Agreement, are the complete and exclusive statement of the terms and conditions governing your use of our Services, and they supersede and cancel all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of these Terms. No agency, partnership, joint venture or employment is created as a result of these Terms, and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind us in any respect whatsoever. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. You may not assign these Terms without our prior written consent. We may assign or transfer these Terms, in whole or in part, without restriction. These Terms and the relationship between you and us shall be governed by the laws of the State of Massachusetts without regard to its conflict of law provisions.
