LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
Our website may display information that is provided by certain stores whose products we may feature (the “grocery stores”).

Under no circumstances will we be liable to you on account of your use or misuse of or reliance on the services arising from any claim relating to this agreement or the subject matter hereof. Such limitation of liability applies to prevent recovery of direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, special, exemplary, and punitive damages whether a claim is based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), or otherwise (even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages). Such limitation of liability shall apply whether the damages arise from:
use or misuse of and reliance on the products
inability to use the products
the interruption, suspension, or termination of the products (including damages incurred by third parties or as a result of your registering for company products via third parties)
This limitation also applies to the costs of procurement of substitute goods or services, lost profits, or lost data. The limitation further applies with respect to the performance or non-performance of the services or any information or merchandise that appears on, or is linked or related in any way to, the products. The limitation applies notwithstanding any failure of essential purpose of any limited remedy and to the fullest extent permitted by law.

You agree that should you rely on the availability, content or prices offered on our website, we are not responsible or liable, indirectly or directly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with such use or reliance. Your direct dealings with any store whose products are offered on our website and any other terms, conditions, representations or warranties associated with such dealings, are between you and such store exclusively and do not involve us. You agree that your submission of an order for a particular product is not a guarantee of the availability of such product.
We will do our best to ensure that the company services are available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. However, there will be occasions when the company services will be interrupted for maintenance, upgrades, emergency repairs, failure of telecommunications systems, equipment failures, acts of God, or other situations. We will make reasonable efforts to minimize such disruption where it is within our reasonable control. You agree that we will not be liable in any event to you or any other party for any suspension, modification, discontinuance, lack of availability, or other termination of the company services.

You understand and agree that the company products are provided to you on an “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” basis.
You acknowledge that you will be solely and fully responsible for all liabilities incurred through the use of our products. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to hold harmless and indemnify us and our employees, officers, agents, or other partners from and against any third party claim arising from or in any way related to your use of the company products, including any liability or expense arising from all claims, losses, damages (actual and/or consequential), suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys’ fees, of every kind and nature including but not limited to any liability arising from or resulting by your data imputed to the company including infringement of intellectual property laws or civil or criminal claims. We will use good faith efforts to provide you with written notice of such claim, suit or action.

We will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of the company products.
We reserve the right to modify, alter, delete and update these Terms of Service at any time we see fit.

PURCHASE AND PAYMENT
Low Carb Chef provides low carbohydrate recipes to subscribers pursuant to a monthly subscription term.
When you sign up for one of these options, you are committing to the term you have chosen. We unfortunately are not able to offer prorated refunds at this time.
At the end of your subscription term, we will automatically bill the card we have on file for you for the following period. Automatic billing will occur unless you cancel before the next billing date. You can always find all your billing information in the “My Account” page.
Our automated system allows you to cancel your renewal at anytime in your account by clicking on “Cancel Subscription.” Your cancellation must be done by you, the subscriber, through our site and cannot be cancelled via an email request. When you cancel, you will still be able to access our meal plans through the end of the billing cycle that you’ve already paid for. There will be no refunds for late cancellation.
New recipes can be viewed by you each week by logging into the subscribers area of our website using your user name and password.
You will be able to access previous recipes as well.
We allow users to favorite, rate, and comment on recipes. You can elect to keep your comments private and use them as recipe notes. Public comments should relate to the recipe at hand. We reserve the right to remove any comments that we consider offensive or off-topic. Doing so may also lead you to being immediately and permanently banned from our site.
Low Carb Chef publishes new recipes every week.

Our recipes, photos, and videos are copyright protected and therefore cannot be distributed or copied without permission.
Each subscription is to be used and accessed by one household only.
