Payment Terms. We offer a subscription to the Services (the “Subscription”) for a fee. By subscribing for the Services, you agree to our Terms, and any additional terms and conditions that are provided here. The Subscription provides you access to certain features and functionality (including, for example, our mobile app, recipe integration, and meal plans). By signing up for and using the Subscription, you agree to pay any fees or other incurred charges that apply. When you sign up for a Subscription, you must designate and provide information about your preferred payment method (“Payment Method”). This information must be complete and accurate, and you are responsible for keeping it up to date. You hereby expressly authorize us to collect from your Payment Method the appropriate fees charged for the Subscription. You can choose to pay for the Subscription on a monthly or annual basis. All fees due for the Subscription are payable in advance, and will be billed automatically to the Payment Method at the start of the monthly or annual Subscription period, as applicable. Unless otherwise stated, the Subscription will auto-renew until you elect to cancel your access to the Subscription. When you provide any payment account information to Wholesum, you represent to Wholesum that you are the authorized user of that payment account.
Termination and Cancellation of the Subscription. If you do not pay the fees due for your Subscription, we may make reasonable efforts to notify you and resolve the issue; however, we reserve the right to disable or terminate your access to Wholesum with or without notice to you.
You may cancel your Subscription at any time through your Account settings. The cancellation of a Subscription will go into effect at the end of your current billing cycle, and you will have the same level of access through the remainder of such billing cycle. For example, if you are billed on a monthly basis and cancel during a given month, you will be charged for the entirety of that month and maintain access through the end of that month. There are no refunds for termination or cancellation of your Subscription. Wholesum reserves the right, but without any obligation, to review its no refund policy upon request and on a case by case basis.
Fee Changes. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable laws, we may change the fee we charge for the Subscription at any time. We will give you reasonable notice of any such pricing changes by posting the new prices on or through the Site and/or Services and/or by sending you an email notification. If you do not wish to pay the new fee, you can cancel prior to the change going into effect.
Refunds, Renewal and Cancellation. When you sign up for a recurring subscription, or other ongoing Services, you have the right to cancel the recurring arrangement at any time. The period for any auto-renewal or recurring arrangement will be the same as the period you originally ordered unless otherwise disclosed to you at the time of purchase. The charges made in connection with any auto-renewal or recurring arrangements will also be at the same rates as were in effect at the time of your original order unless we give you prior notice of any change to such charges before such charges are made for any subsequent renewal period. If you cancel an auto-renewal or recurring arrangement, you will not be entitled to a refund and the cancellation will be effective at the end of the then current recurring period unless you request an earlier termination date in writing.

DISPUTES, ARBITRATION, JURISDICTION AND VENUE
You and Wholesum agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms, any policy referred to herein, or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or the validity thereof, or the use of the Site, Services or Content (collectively, the “Disputes”) will be brought only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. Except where prohibited, you and we agree to submit to the personal and exclusive arbitration of disputes relating to your general use of the Services under the rules of the American Arbitration Association. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Please visit www.adr.org for more information about arbitration.
Any arbitration, to the extent necessary, will be conducted in Missoula, Montana, and you waive any right to claim that such location is an inconvenient forum. You agree not to sue us or bring arbitration in any other forum.
The arbitration will be conducted in English. A single independent and impartial arbitrator will be appointed pursuant to the rules of the American Arbitration Association. Both you and we agree to comply with the following rules, which are intended to streamline the dispute resolution process and reduce the costs and burdens for everyone involved: the arbitration will be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner to be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; the arbitration will not require any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed in writing by the parties; and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Barring extraordinary circumstances, the arbitrator will issue his or her decision within 120 days from the date the arbitrator is appointed. The arbitrator may extend this time limit for an additional 30 days in the interests of justice. All arbitration proceedings will be closed to the public and confidential and all records relating thereto will be permanently sealed, except as necessary to obtain court confirmation of the arbitration award. The award of the arbitrator will be in writing and will include a statement describing the reasons for the disposition of any claim.
You also acknowledge and understand that, with respect to any dispute with us arising out of or relating to your use of the Services:
If this arbitration provision is found to be null and void, then all disputes arising under the Terms between us will be subject to the jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Montana, and you and we hereby submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of these courts.
In the event of any litigation or arbitration arising from or related to these Terms, or the Services provided, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover from the non-prevailing party all reasonable costs incurred including staff time, court costs, attorneys’ fees, and all other related expenses incurred in such litigation or arbitration.
International Use. This Site is operated from and Wholesum is headquartered in the State of Montana, U.S. By electing to access this Site and/or Services from any jurisdiction outside of the U.S., you accept full responsibility for ensuring that your use of the Site and/or Services is in compliance with all laws applicable within that other jurisdiction. Wholesum makes no representation that materials, products and services available on or through the Site and/or Services are appropriate or available for use in jurisdictions outside of the U.S. You are not permitted to access the Site and/or Services from any jurisdiction in which the Content is illegal and/or accessing the Site and/or Services is illegal. You may not use, export or re-export any materials from this Site and/or Services in violation of any applicable laws or regulations.
Waiver and Severability. The failure of Wholesum to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. In the event that any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, that provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full force and effect. All remedies of Wholesum hereunder shall be cumulative.
Assignment. You may not assign any of your rights or obligations hereunder, whether voluntarily or by operation of law except with the prior express written consent of Wholesum, which consent may be withheld by Wholesum acting in its sole discretion, and any attempted assignment in violation of the foregoing is void. Wholesum may assign any or all of its rights and obligations hereunder to an affiliate, subsidiary or a successor in title to the Site and/or the business and undertaking of Wholesum.
Force Majeure. Wholesum will not be liable for, or be considered to be in breach of or default under these Terms on account of, any delay or failure to perform as required by these Terms as a result of events beyond the reasonable control of Wholesum, including without limiting the foregoing where the delay or failure is due to fires or fire related hazards, explosions, power outages, earthquakes, floods, spills, epidemics, acts of God, war or acts of war, acts of terrorism, riots, strikes, lockouts or other labor or contractor actions, acts of public authorities, or delays or defaults caused by common carriers, or other similar events which cannot reasonably be foreseen or provided against.
Notices. Any notices or other communications permitted or required hereunder, including but not limited to modifications to these Terms and/or any policy referred to herein, will be in writing and given by Wholesum (i) via email (in each case to the email address provided by you for your Account(s)) or (ii) by posting to the Site. Notice delivered by email will be deemed to have been received on the date on which such notice is transmitted.
Survival. The provisions of these Terms which require or contemplate performance after the expiration or termination of these Terms shall remain enforceable notwithstanding such expiration or termination.
