NUFOODI Terms of Service
PLEASE READ THESE NUFOODI TERMS OF SERVICE (TOS) CAREFULLY AS THEY CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR LEGAL REMEDIES, RIGHTS, AND OBLIGATIONS.

In order to access certain features of the Application and Site, and to book an Event Reservation or create An Event or Product Listing, you must register to create an account (“Nufoodi Account”) and become a Member. You may register to join the Services directly via the Application or Site or as described in this section.
You can also register to join by logging into your account with certain third-party social networking sites (“3PSNS”) (including, but not limited to, Facebook; each such account, a “Third-Party Account”(TPA)), via our Application or Site, as described below. As part of the functionality of the Platform, you may link your Nufoodi Account with TPAs, by either: (i) providing your TPA login information to Nufoodi through the Platform; or (ii) allowing Nufoodi to access your TPA, as permitted under the applicable terms and conditions that govern your use of each TPA. You represent that you are entitled to disclose your TPA login information to Nufoodi and/or grant Nufoodi access to your TPA (including, but not limited to, for use for the purposes described herein), without breach by you of any of the terms and conditions that govern your use of the applicable TPA and without obligating Nufoodi to pay any fees or making Nufoodi subject to any usage limitations imposed by such third-party service providers. By granting Nufoodi access to any TPAs, you understand that Nufoodi will access, make available and store (if applicable) any Content that you have provided to and stored in your TPA (“3PSNS Content”) so that it is available on and through the Platform via your Nufoodi Account and Nufoodi Account profile page. Unless otherwise specified in these TOS terms, all 3PSNS Content, if any, will be considered to be Member Content for all purposes of these TOS terms. Depending on the TPAs you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such TPAs, personally identifiable information that you post to your TPAs will be available on and through your Nufoodi Account on the Platform. Please note that if a TPA or associated service becomes unavailable or Nufoodi’s access to such TPA is terminated by the third-party service provider, then 3PSNS Content will no longer be available on and through the Platform. You have the ability to disable the connection between your Nufoodi Account and your TPAs, at any time, by accessing the “Settings” section of the Application and Site. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR TPAS ARE GOVERNED SOLELY BY YOUR AGREEMENT(S) WITH SUCH THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS. Nufoodi makes no effort to review any 3PSNS Content for any purpose, including but not limited to for accuracy, legality or non-infringement and Nufoodi is not responsible for any 3PSNS Content.
We will create your Nufoodi Account and your Nufoodi Account profile page for your use of the Application and Site based upon the personal information you provide to us or that we obtain via a 3PSNS as described above. You may not have more than one (1) active Nufoodi Account. You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information during the registration process and to update such information to keep it accurate, current and complete. Nufoodi reserves the right to suspend or terminate your Nufoodi Account and your access to the Platform if you create more than one (1) Nufoodi Account or if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, not current or incomplete. You are responsible for safeguarding your password. You agree that you will not disclose your password to any third-party and that you will take sole responsibility for any activities or actions under your Nufoodi Account, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions. You will immediately notify Nufoodi of any unauthorized use of your Nufoodi Account. For-Profit and Not-for-Profit entity accounts must be created by a Qualified existing Nufoodi Member. Entities will be required to be verified prior to the creation of their first Event; periodic reverification may be required at the option Nufoodi. All For-Profit and Not-for-Profit entity accounts are subject to additional verification and TOS terms in addition to the standard TOS terms.
As a Member, you may create Event or Product Listings. To create an Event or Product Listing, you will be asked a variety of questions about the Event, Product, or Meal to be listed, including, but not limited to, the location, capacity, size, features, and availability of the Event, Product, or Meal and pricing and related rules and financial terms. In order to be featured in Event or Product Listings via the Platform, all Events must have valid physical addresses. Event or Product Listings will be made publicly available via the Platform. Other Members will be able to book your Event, Product, or Meal via the Platform based upon the information provided in your Listing. You understand and agree that once a Guest requests a reservation for your Event, Product, or Meal, you may not request the Guest to pay a higher price than in the reservation request.
You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for any and all Event or Product Listings you post. Accordingly, you represent and warrant that any Listing you post and the reservation of, or for a Guest's enjoyment of, an Event Reservation for an Event or Product Listing you post (i) will not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties, such as homeowner association, condominium, lease or rental agreements, and (ii) will (a) be in compliance with all applicable laws (such as zoning laws and laws governing Events, Products, or Meals at commercial, residential and/or other properties), Tax requirements, and rules and regulations that may apply to any Meal included in an Event or Product Listing you post (including having all required permits, licenses and registrations), and (b) not conflict with the rights of third parties. Please note that Nufoodi assumes no responsibility for a Host’s compliance with any agreements with or duties to third parties, applicable laws, rules and regulations. Nufoodi reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Listing for any reason, including Event or Product Listings that Nufoodi, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these TOS terms or Nufoodi’s then-current Policies and Community Guidelines (http://www.Nufoodi.com/help/policies), or otherwise harmful to the Platform.
If you are a Host, you understand and agree that Nufoodi does not act as an insurer or as your contracting agent. If a Guest requests a reservation for your Event, Product, or Meal and dines at your Event, Product, or Meal, any agreement you enter into with such Guest is between you and the Guest and Nufoodi is not a party thereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Nufoodi serves as the limited authorized payment collection agent of the Host for the purpose of accepting, on behalf of the Host, payments from Guests of such amounts stipulated by the Host (including cleaning or other fees and/or Taxes).
When you create an Event or Product Listing, you may also choose to include certain requirements which must be met by the Members who are eligible to request a reservation for your Event, Product, or Meal, including, but not limited to, requiring Members to have a profile picture or verified phone number, in order to book your Event, Product, or Meal. Any Member wishing to book Meals included in Event or Product Listings with such requirements must meet these requirements. More information on how to set such requirements is available via the “Hosting” section of the Platform.
If you are a Host, Nufoodi makes certain tools available to you to help you to make informed decisions about which Members you choose to confirm a reservation for your Event, Product, or Meal. You acknowledge and agree that, as a Host, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals who reside at or are otherwise present at the Event, Product, or Meal at your request or invitation, excluding the Guest (and the individuals the Guest invites to the Event, Product, or Meal, if applicable.)
Nufoodi recommends that Hosts obtain appropriate insurance for their Events, Products or Meals. Please review any insurance policy that you may have for your Event, Product, or Meal carefully, and in particular please make sure that you are familiar with and understand any exclusions to, and any deductibles that may apply for, such insurance policy, including, but not limited to, whether or not your insurance policy will cover the actions or inactions of Guests (and the individuals the Guest invites to the Event, Product, or Meal, if applicable) while at your Event, Product, or Meal.
Nufoodi may offer Hosts the option of having photographers take photographs of their Meals. If you as a Host choose to have a photographer do this, the photographs taken will be made available to you to include in your Listing with a watermark or tag bearing the words “Nufoodi.com Verified Photo” or similar wording (“Verified Images”). All images, materials and content created by these photographers provided by Nufoodi, including Verified Images, constitute Nufoodi Content, regardless of whether you include them in your Listing.
Nufoodi does not endorse any Member or any Event, Product or Meal. You understand that Verified Images are intended only to indicate a photographic representation of the Event, Product, or Meal at the time the photograph was taken. Verified Images are therefore not an endorsement by Nufoodi of any Member or any Meal. Members are required by these TOS terms to provide accurate information, and although Nufoodi may undertake additional checks and processes designed to help verify or check the identities or backgrounds of users, we do not make any representations about, confirm, or endorse any Member or the Member’s purported identity or background.
Any references in the Platform to a Member being “verified” or “connected” (or similar language) only indicate that the Member has completed a relevant verification process, and does not represent anything else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by Nufoodi about any Member, including of the Member’s identity and whether the Member is, safe, suitable or trustworthy. Instead, any such description is intended to be useful information for you to evaluate when you make your own decisions about the identity and suitability of others whom you contact or interact with via the Platform. We therefore recommend that you always exercise care and due diligence when deciding whether to dine with a Host or to accept a reservation request from a Guest, or to have any other interaction with any other Member. Except as provided in the Nufoodi Host Guarantee Terms and Conditions (“Nufoodi Host Guarantee”, at http://www.Nufoodi.com/terms/host_guarantee), which is an agreement between Nufoodi and Hosts, we are not responsible for any damage or harm resulting from your interactions with other Members.
By using the Platform, you agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for actions or omissions of other Members or other third parties will be limited to a claim against the particular Members or other third parties who caused you harm. You agree not to attempt to impose liability on or seek any legal remedy from Nufoodi with respect to such actions or omissions. Accordingly, we encourage you to communicate directly with other Members on the Site and Services regarding any reservations or Event or Product Listings made by you. This limitation shall not apply to any claim by a Host against Nufoodi regarding the remittance of payments received from a Guest by Nufoodi on behalf of a Host, which instead shall be subject to the limitations described in the section below entitled “Limitation of Liability”.
“Meal Fees” means the amounts that are due and payable by a Guest in exchange for that Guest’s dining of a meal. The Host alone, and not Nufoodi, determines these amounts. The Host may in his or her sole discretion decide to include in these amounts (i) a cleaning fee or any other fee permitted on the Nufoodi platform, or (ii) Taxes that the Host determines that he or she has to collect.
“Guest Fees” means the fee that Nufoodi charges a Guest for the use of its online platform, which is calculated as a percentage of the applicable Meal Fees. The Guest Fees will be displayed to the Guest when the Guest is asked whether to send a reservation request to a Host.
“Host Fees” means the fee that Nufoodi charges a Host for the use of its online platform, which is calculated as a percentage of the applicable Meal Fees. The Host Fees will be displayed to the Host when the Host is asked whether to confirm or reject a reservation request from a prospective Guest.
“Service Fees” means collectively the Guest Fees and the Host Fees.
“Total Fees” means collectively the Event, Product, or Meal Fees and the Guest Fees (plus any Taxes in respect of Guest Fees, such as VAT in Europe).
If you are a Host and a reservation is requested for your Event, Product, or Meal via the Platform, you will be required to either confirm or reject the reservation request within the Reservation Request Period, otherwise the reservation request will be automatically cancelled. When a reservation is requested via the Platform, we will share with you (i) the first and last name of the Guest who has requested the reservation, (ii) a link to the Guest’s Nufoodi Account profile page, (iii) the names of any members of an 3PSNS with whom you are “friends” or associated on the 3PSNS if such individuals are also “friends” or associated with the Guest on such 3PSNS, and (iv) an indication that the name that the Guest provided to Nufoodi when the Guest became a Member matches the name that the Guest provided to the 3PSNSs to which the Guest has linked his or her Nufoodi Account, so that you can view such information before confirming or rejecting the reservation request. If you are unable to confirm or decide to reject a reservation request within the Reservation Request Period, any amounts collected by Nufoodi for the requested reservation will be refunded to the applicable Guest’s credit card and any pre-authorization of such credit card will be released. When you confirm a reservation requested by a Guest, Nufoodi will send you an email, text message or message via the Application confirming such reservation, depending on the selections you make via the Platform.
Nufoodi will collect the Total Fees at the time of reservation confirmation (i.e. when the Host confirms the reservation request) and will initiate payment of the Event, Product, or Meal Fees (less Nufoodi’s Host Fees and any Taxes in respect of the Host Fees, such as VAT in Europe) to the Host within 24 hours of when the Guest arrives at the applicable Meal (except to the extent that a refund is due to the Guest). The time it takes for the Host to receive payouts may depend upon the method for receiving payouts chosen by the Host. Some methods involve the use of third-party payment processors, who may impose their own additional charges for the use of their services on the Host, including by deducting their charges from the payout amount.
If you owe or agree to pay any amount via Nufoodi to Nufoodi (whether as a result of your reservations or actions as a Guest or otherwise), then Nufoodi may (but is not obliged to) withhold the amount owing to Nufoodi from any payout amounts due to you as a Host, and use the withheld amount to setoff the amount owed by you to Nufoodi. If Nufoodi does so, then your obligation to pay Nufoodi will be extinguished to the extent of the amount withheld by Nufoodi, and Nufoodi will cease to owe to you any obligations (including, but not limited to, any obligation to pay you) with respect to the amount withheld.
Appointment of Nufoodi as Limited Payment Collection Agent for Host
Each Host hereby appoints Nufoodi as the Host’s limited payment collection agent solely for the purpose of accepting the Event, Product, or Meal Fees from Guests.
Each Host agrees that payment made by a Guest through Nufoodi, shall be considered the same as a payment made directly to the Host, and the Host will make the Event, Product, or Meal available to the Guest in the agreed-upon manner as if the Host has received the Event, Product, or Meal Fees. Each Host agrees that Nufoodi may, in accordance with the cancellation policy selected by the Host and reflected in the relevant Listing, (i) permit the Guest to cancel the reservation and (ii) refund (via Nufoodi) to the Guest that portion of the Event, Product, or Meal Fees specified in the applicable cancellation policy. Each Host understands that as Nufoodi accepts payments from Guests as the Host’s limited payment collection agent and that Nufoodi’ obligation to pay the Host is subject to and conditional upon successful receipt of the associated payments from Guests. Nufoodi does not guarantee payments to Hosts for amounts that have not been successfully received by Nufoodi from Guests. In accepting appointment as the limited authorized agent of the Host, Nufoodi assumes no liability for any acts or omissions of the Host.
Please note that Nufoodi does not currently charge fees for the creation of Event or Product Listings. However, you as a Host acknowledge and agree that Nufoodi reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to charge you for and collect fees from you for the creation of Event or Product Listings. Please note that Nufoodi will provide notice of any Listing fee collection via the Platform, prior to implementing such an Event or Product Listing fee feature.
The Hosts, not Nufoodi, are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed reservations and making available any Meals reserved through the Platform. If you, as a Guest, choose to enter into a transaction with a Host for the reservation for an Event, Product or meal, you agree and understand that you will be required to enter into an agreement with the Host and you agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with such Meal imposed by the Host. You acknowledge and agree that you, and not Nufoodi, will be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements, that Nufoodi is not a party to such agreements, and that, with the exception of its payment obligations hereunder, Nufoodi disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements. You acknowledge and agree that, notwithstanding the fact that Nufoodi is not a party to the agreement between you and the Host, Nufoodi acts as the Host’s payment collection agent for the limited purpose of accepting payments from you on behalf of the Host. Upon your payment of the Total Fees to Nufoodi, your payment obligation to the Host for the Event, Product, or Meal Fees is extinguished, and Nufoodi is responsible for remitting the Event, Product, or Meal Fees (less the Host Fees and any Taxes in respect of the Host Fees, such as VAT in Europe), in the manner described in these Terms. In the event that Nufoodi does not remit any such amounts as described in these Terms, such Host will have recourse only against such Nufoodi entity.
The Total Fees payable will be displayed to a Guest before the Guest sends a reservation request to a Host. As noted above, the Host is required to either confirm or reject the reservation request within the Reservation Request Period, otherwise the requested reservation will be automatically cancelled. If a requested reservation is cancelled (i.e. not confirmed by the applicable Host), any amounts collected by Nufoodi will be refunded to such Guest, depending on the selections the Guest makes via the Application and Site, and any pre-authorization of such Guest’s credit card will be released, if applicable.
You as a Guest agree to pay Nufoodi for the Total Fees for any reservation requested in connection with your Nufoodi Account if such requested reservations are confirmed by the applicable Host. In order to establish a reservation pending the applicable Host’s confirmation of your requested reservation, you understand and agree that Nufoodi, on behalf of the Host, reserve the right, in its sole discretion, to (i) obtain a pre-authorization via your credit card for the Total Fees or (ii) charge your credit card a nominal amount, not to exceed one dollar ($1), or a similar sum in the currency in which you are transacting (for example one euro or one British pound), to verify your credit card. Once Nufoodi receives confirmation of your reservation from the applicable Host, Nufoodi will collect the Total Fees in accordance with these Terms and the pricing terms set forth in the applicable Listing. Please note that Nufoodi cannot control any fees that may be charged to a Guest by his or her bank related to Nufoodi’s collection of the Total Fees, and Nufoodi disclaims all liability in this regard.
Hosts may choose to include security deposits in their Event or Product Listings (“Security Deposits”). Each Listing will describe whether a Security Deposit is required for the applicable Event or Product. If a Security Deposit is included in an Event or Product Listing for a confirmed reservation for an Event, Product or Meal, Nufoodi will, in its capacity as the payment collection agent of the Host, use its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain a preauthorization of the Guest’s credit card in the amount the Host determines for the Security Deposit within a reasonable time prior to the Nufoodi Member’s check-in at the applicable Host’s Meal. Nufoodi will also use its commercially reasonable efforts to address Hosts’ requests and claims related to Security Deposits, but Nufoodi is not responsible for administering or accepting any claims by Hosts related to Security Deposits, and disclaims any and all liability in this regard.
In consideration for the use of Nufoodi’s online marketplace and platform, Nufoodi charges the Service Fees. Where applicable, Taxes (such as VAT in Europe) may also be charged in respect of the Host Fees and Guest Fees. Nufoodi deducts the Host Fees from the Event, Product, or Meal Fees before remitting the balance to the Host as described in these TOS terms. Guest Fees are, as noted above, included in the Total Fees.
Balances will be remitted by Nufoodi to Hosts via check, PayPal, direct deposit or other payment methods described on the Site or via the Application, in the Host’s currency of choice, depending upon the selections the Host makes via the Platform. Amounts may be rounded up or down as described the “Rounding Off” section below.
Please note that Nufoodi may impose or deduct foreign currency processing costs on or from any payments or payouts by Nufoodi in currencies other than U.S. dollars. More information on any such costs or deductions will be available via the Application and Site. More information on any such costs or deductions will be available via the Application and Site. More information on Services Fees can be found at http://www.Nufoodi.com/help. Except as otherwise provided herein, Service Fees are non-refundable.
If, as a Guest, you cancel your requested reservation before the requested reservation is confirmed by a Host, Nufoodi will cancel any pre-authorization to your credit card and/or refund any nominal amounts charged to your credit card in connection with the requested reservation within a commercially reasonable time. If, as a Guest, you wish to cancel a confirmed reservation made via the Platform, prior to arriving at the Event, Product, or Meal, the cancellation policy of the Host contained in the applicable Listing will apply to such cancellation. Our ability to refund the Event, Product, or Meal Fees and other amounts charged to you will depend upon the terms of the applicable cancellation policy. Details regarding refunds and cancellation policies are available via the Application and Site. The Guest Fee is non-refundable regardless of the cancellation policy selected by the Host.
If a Host cancels a confirmed reservation made via the Platform, (i) Nufoodi will refund the Total Fees for such reservation to the applicable Guest within a commercially reasonable time of the cancellation and (ii) the Guest will receive an email or other communication from Nufoodi containing alternative Event or Product Listings and other related information. If the Guest requests a reservation from one of the alternative Event or Product Listings and the Host associated with such alternative Event or Product Listing confirms the Guest’s requested reservation, then the Guest agrees to pay Nufoodi the Total Fees relating to the confirmed reservation for the Event, Product, or Meal in the alternative Event or Product Listing, in accordance with these Terms. If a Host cancelled a confirmed reservation and you, as a Guest, have not received an email or other communication from Nufoodi, please contact Nufoodi at http://www.Nufoodi.com/help/contact_us.
If, as a Host, you cancel a confirmed reservation, Nufoodi may apply penalties or consequences to you or your Event or Product Listing, including (i) publishing an automated review on your Event or Product Listing indicating that an Event Reservation was cancelled, (ii) keeping the calendar for your Event or Product Listing unavailable or blocked for the dates of the cancelled reservation, or (iii) imposing a cancellation fee (to be withheld from your future payouts). You will be notified of the situations in which a cancellation fee applies before you decide to cancel.
In certain circumstances, Nufoodi may decide, in its sole discretion, that it is necessary or desirable to cancel a confirmed reservation made via the Platform. This may be for reasons set forth in Nufoodi’s Extenuating Circumstances policy at http://www.Nufoodi.com/help/policies/cancellations_and_refunds#extenuating_circumstances or for any other reason. Nufoodi may also determine, in its sole discretion, to refund to the Guest part or all of the amounts charged to the Guest in accordance with the Guest Refund Policy at http://www.Nufoodi.com/terms/guest_refund_policy. You agree that Nufoodi and the relevant Guest or Host will not have any liability for such cancellations or refunds.
In some instances, Guests may be required to make recurring, incremental payments toward the Total Fees owed for a confirmed reservation before beginning his or her enjoyment of the applicable Meal (collectively, “Recurring Payments”). More information on Recurring Payments will be made available via the Platform, if applicable. If Recurring Payments apply to a confirmed reservation, then the Guest authorizes Nufoodi, on behalf of the Host, to collect the Total Fees and the Host agrees that such Nufoodi entity will initiate payouts to the Host, in the increments and at the frequency associated with the applicable Recurring Payments, identified on the Platform.
Nufoodi may, in its sole discretion, round up or round down amounts that are payable from or to Guests or Hosts to the nearest whole functional base unit in which the currency is denominated (for example to the nearest dollar, euro or other supported currency); for example, Nufoodi will round up an amount of $101.50 to $102.00, and $101.49 to $101.00.
Some currencies are denominated in large numbers. In those cases, Nufoodi may determine the functional base unit in which those currencies are denominated to be 10, 100 or 1,200 of the currency; the corresponding examples for such currencies would be for Nufoodi to round up an amount of 1,045 up to 1,050 and 1,044 down to 1,040, or 35,450 up to 35,500 and 35,449 down to 35,400, or 837,500 up to 838,000 and 837,499 down to 837,000.
We will take steps to rectify any payment processing errors that we become aware of. These steps may include crediting or debiting (as appropriate) the same payment method used for the original payout to or payment by you, so that you end up receiving or paying the correct amount.
Some Hosts may pledge to donate a portion of the funds they receive from confirmed reservations made via the Platform to a particular cause or charity. We do not take any responsibility or liability for whether the Host does in fact make the donation he or she pledged to make. In such cases, the Host in question is responsible for his or her own compliance with all laws and regulations applicable to such pledges and/or fund-raising.
Tax regulations may require us to collect appropriate tax information from our Hosts, or to withhold taxes from payouts to Hosts, or both. For instance, IRS regulations stipulate that we must collect an IRS Form W-9 from our US Hosts, and an appropriate IRS Form W-8 (for example Form W-8BEN) from non-US hosts with at least one Event or Product Listing in the US. You as a Host are solely responsible for keeping the information in your tax forms current, complete and accurate. If you as a Host fail to provide us with documentation that we determine to be sufficient to alleviate our obligation (if any) to withhold payments to you (for example where you are a US Host and you fail to provide us with a completed IRS Form W-9), we reserve the right in our sole discretion to freeze all payouts to you until resolution, to withhold such amounts as required by law, or to do both.
You as a Host understand and agree that you are solely responsible for determining (i) your applicable Tax reporting requirements, and (ii) the Taxes that should be included, and for including Taxes to be collected or obligations relating to applicable Taxes in Event or Product Listings. You are also solely responsible for remitting to the relevant authority any Taxes included or received by you. Nufoodi cannot and does not offer Tax-related advice to any Members.
Where applicable, or based upon request from a Host, Nufoodi may issue a valid VAT invoice to such Host.
You understand and acknowledge that appropriate governmental agencies, departments or authorities (the “Tax Authority”) where your Event, Product, or Meal is located may require Taxes to be collected by Hosts from Guests on the amount paid for the right to use and/or occupancy of Meals, and to be remitted to the respective Tax Authority. The laws in jurisdictions may vary, but these taxes are generally required to be collected and remitted as a percentage of the rent or Meal Fees set by Hosts, a set amount per day, or other variations, and are sometimes called “occupancy taxes,” “hotel taxes,” “lodging taxes,” “transient taxes,” “sales and use taxes,” “value added taxes,” “room taxes” or “tourist taxes” (hereafter, "Occupancy Taxes").
In certain jurisdictions, Nufoodi may decide in its sole discretion to facilitate collection and remittance of Occupancy Taxes from Guests on behalf of and in-lieu of Hosts, if such tax jurisdiction asserts Nufoodi or Hosts have a tax collection and remittance obligation. In any jurisdiction in which we decide to facilitate collection and remittance of Occupancy Taxes, whether you are a Guest or Host you hereby instruct and authorize Nufoodi to collect Occupancy Taxes from Guests on behalf of and in lieu of Hosts at the time Meal Fees are collected, and to remit such Occupancy Taxes to the Tax Authority. When Nufoodi facilitates collection or remittance of Occupancy Taxes in a jurisdiction for the first time, Nufoodi will provide notice to existing Hosts with Event or Product Listings for Meals in such jurisdictions. The amount of Occupancy Taxes collected and remitted through facilitation by Nufoodi, if any, will be visible to and separately stated to both Guests and Hosts on their respective transaction documents. Guests and Hosts agree that in any jurisdiction where Nufoodi facilitates collection and remittance of Occupancy Taxes on behalf of and lieu of Hosts, such Hosts are not permitted to also collect and/or remit such taxes on any portion of the Event, Product, or Meal Fees. Hosts and Guests acknowledge and agree that in some jurisdictions, Nufoodi may not be able to facilitate collection and remittance of Occupancy Taxes. In any jurisdiction in which we have not provided notice of, or are not facilitating collection and remittance of Occupancy Taxes to the Tax Authority in your jurisdiction, Hosts and Guests remain solely responsible and liable for the collection and/or remittance of any and all Occupancy Taxes that may apply to Meals. For any jurisdiction in which we facilitate collection and remittance of Occupancy Taxes, Hosts and Guests expressly grant us permission to transfer data and other information relating to Occupancy Taxes, if any, collected and remitted relating to your transactions.
Whether you are a Guest of Host, you agree that any claim or cause of action relating to collection and remittance of Taxes shall not extend to any supplier or vendor that may be used by Nufoodi in connection with collection and remittance of Occupancy Taxes, if any. Guests and Hosts agree that we may seek additional amounts from you in the event that the Taxes collected or remitted are insufficient to fully discharge your obligations to the Tax Authority, and agree that your sole remedy for Occupancy Taxes collected is a refund of Occupancy Taxes collected by Nufoodi from the applicable Tax Authority in accordance with applicable procedures set by that Tax Authority.
As a Guest, you are responsible for leaving the Event, Product, or Meal in the condition it was in when you arrived. You acknowledge and agree that, as a Guest, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals whom you invite to, or otherwise provide access to, the Event, Product, or Meal. In the event that a Host claims otherwise and provides evidence of damage, including but not limited to photographs, you agree to pay the cost of replacing the damaged items with equivalent items. After being notified of the claim and given forty eight (48) hours to respond, the payment will be charged to and taken from the credit card on file in your Nufoodi Account. Nufoodi also reserves the right to charge the credit card on file in your Nufoodi Account, or otherwise collect payment from you and pursue any avenues available to Nufoodi in this regard, including using Security Deposits, in situations in which you have been determined, in Nufoodi’s sole discretion, to have damaged any Meal, including, but not limited to, in relation to any payment requests made by Hosts under the Nufoodi Host Guarantee, and in relation to any payments made by Nufoodi to Hosts. If we are unable to charge the credit card on file or otherwise collect payment from you, you agree to remit payment for any damage to the Event, Product, or Meal to the applicable Host or to Nufoodi (if applicable).
Both Guests and Hosts agree to cooperate with and assist Nufoodi in good faith, and to provide Nufoodi with such information and take such actions as may be reasonably requested by Nufoodi, in connection with any complaints or claims made by Members relating to Meals or any personal or other property located at an Event Reservation (including, without limitation, payment requests made under the Nufoodi Host Guarantee) or with respect to any investigation undertaken by Nufoodi or a representative of Nufoodi regarding use or abuse of the Site, Application or the Services. If you are a Guest, upon Nufoodi’s reasonable request, and to the extent you are reasonably able to do so, you agree to participate in mediation or similar resolution process with a Host, at no cost to you, which process will be conducted by Nufoodi or a third-party selected by Nufoodi, with respect to losses for which the Host is requesting payment from Nufoodi under the Nufoodi Host Guarantee.
If you are a Guest, you understand and agree that Nufoodi reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to make a claim under your homeowner’s, renter’s or other insurance policy related to any damage or loss that you may have caused or been responsible for or to an Event Reservation or any personal or other property located at an Event Reservation (including without limitation amounts paid by Nufoodi under the Nufoodi Host Guarantee). You agree to cooperate with and assist Nufoodi in good faith, and to provide Nufoodi with such information as may be reasonably requested by Nufoodi, in order to make a claim under your homeowner’s, renter’s or other insurance policy, including, but not limited to, executing documents and taking such further acts as Nufoodi may reasonably request to assist Nufoodi in accomplishing the foregoing.

Controlling Law and Jurisdiction
These TOS terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of New Hampshire and the United States of America, without regard to its conflict-of-law provisions. You and we agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state court located in Hillsborough County, Nashua, New Hampshire or a United States District Court, District of New Hampshire located in Concord, New Hampshire for any actions for which the parties retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, patents, trade secrets, trademarks, or other intellectual property rights, as set forth in the Dispute Resolution provision below.
You and Nufoodi agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these TOS terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or to the use of the Services or use of the Application or Site (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration , except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and Nufoodi are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Nufoodi otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. The entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void if this specific paragraph is held unenforceable. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these TOS terms.
Arbitration Rules and Governing Law. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules & SP”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. (The AAA Rules & SP are available at http://www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section.
Arbitration Process. A Member who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified within the AAA Rules & SP. (The AAA Demand for Arbitration is provided at http://www.adr.org/aaa/ShowPDF?doc=ADRSTG_004175 . The arbitrator will be either a retired attorney or retired judge licensed to practice law in the state of New Hampshire and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s current roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If within (10) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator then an arbitrator will be appointed by the AAA in accordance with the AAA Rules & SP.
Arbitration Location and Procedure. Unless you and Nufoodi otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in Hillsborough County, NH . If your claim does not exceed $1,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Nufoodi submit to the arbitrator, unless the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary or you request a hearing . If your claim exceeds $1,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules & SP. Subject to the AAA Rules & SP, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules & SP. The arbitrator’s decision will include and detail the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s awarded damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief deemed warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorney fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. Nufoodi will seek, and hereby retains all rights it may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys’ fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.
Fees. Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules & SP. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000, Nufoodi will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either your claim substance or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b))
