Cut+Dry and its Partner Suppliers (if applicable) do not guarantee that product descriptions (including any weights or coloring or dimensions) or other content associated with any product on the Sites is accurate, complete, reliable, or error-free. The products delivered may vary from the descriptions and portrayals on the Sites due to factors such as the availability and variability of product, packaging, manufacturing processes and raw materials. Additional e-commerce terms and conditions relating to refund, return, taxes, shipping may be provided at or near the point of purchase.
Accounts and Passwords (Generally)
If you use the Sites and such use requires setting up an account and/or password(s), you are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password(s) and for restricting access to your computer. If you open an account, register, or provide us with any information, you agree to complete the account initiation, registration, or other process by providing us with current, complete, and accurate information as requested by any forms. Cut+Dry is not responsible for any errors or delays in responding to any inquiry or request caused by any incorrect, outdated, or incorrect information provided by you or any technical problems beyond the control or Cut+Dry. You acknowledge and agree that any login, identifier, or password issued in connection with the Sites (each a “Password”) is confidential information. You must maintain the confidentiality of any Password, and you may not disclose such Password to any other person or entity or permit any other person or entity to access the Sites using such Password. You agree to notify Cut+Dry immediately of any unauthorized use of any Password that is not issued directly to you or approved by us.
Upon termination of your account you agree that: (a) any use rights or licenses provided to you under these Terms will end, and (b) except to the extent prohibited by applicable law Cut+Dry may (but have no obligation to) permanently destroy all information associated with your or your account stored on servers controlled by Cut+Dry. Cut+Dry is not liable to you or any third party for compensation, reimbursement, or damages in connection with any termination or suspension of the Sites or any deletion of information associated with you or your account. Upon termination those terms that by their nature are intended to survive termination (such as intellectual property ownership, arbitration obligations, indemnification obligations, limitations of liability, and payment obligations owed to Cut+Dry that accrued prior to the termination and any other amounts owed by you under these Terms, including claims, fines, penalties, and other liability incurred by Cut+Dry caused by your use of the Sites) will survive.
Payments Account Registration and Authorizations (B2B Platform)
In order to be eligible to submit or receive payments through the B2B Platform, Restaurants have to apply for a payments account (“Payments Account”). When Restaurant applies for a Payments Account, Cut+Dry collects information such as name, the business name, location and bank account number(s), email address, tax identification number and phone number. Restaurant may choose to register as an individual (sole proprietor) or as a company or other business organization. If Restaurant registers as a company or organization, it must also provide information about an owner or principal of the company, who is authorized to act on behalf of the company and have the authority to bind the company to these Terms and Restaurant agrees to provide supplemental documentation upon request (including but not limited to: articles of incorporation and/or a business license). When agreeing to these Terms on behalf of a company or other organization, the term “Restaurant” will mean the natural person, as well as the business entity. If you are using the Sites on behalf of a corporate entity or organization, then you agree to these Terms on behalf of that corporate entity or organization and its affiliates and you represent that you have the authority to do so. In such a scenario, the words “you” and “your” when used in these Terms will apply to your or organization and its affiliates as well as you as an individual as appropriate.
Cut+Dry and its banking partners need to ensure that the persons using a Payments Account are who they say they are and further need to understand the business risks associated with such persons. Accordingly, the Restaurant, its principals and its account users may be required to provide a business EIN or Tax ID, address, date of birth or other information and Cut+Dry may request additional information (such as a driver’s license (or other government issued ID), a business license, or invoices) to validate the identity of Restaurant, its principals or its Payments Account users. By signing up for a Payments Account, Restaurant authorizes Cut+Dry to retrieve additional information about it, its principals and its Payments Account users from third parties and other identification services, including credit bureaus and other information providers. Cut+Dry may periodically audit or re-verify information of Restaurant, its principals and its Payments Account users (by performing third party checks or otherwise) against the prevailing eligibility requirements associated with a Payments Account. Cut+Dry reserves the right to deny Restaurant access to services or close a Payments Account if registration information or other account validation (including identity of users) cannot be verified.
Additionally, Cut+Dry may share some or all of the information about Restaurant’s transactions with its bank partners and other partners (and their respective affiliates, agents, subcontractors, and employees), who may use this information to perform their obligations under their agreements with Cut+Dry, to perform analytics and create reports, to prevent fraud, and for any other lawful purpose.
Restaurant agrees that Cut+Dry is permitted to contact and share information about Restaurant and its Payments Account with banks and other financial institutions.
Note that persons with access to the Payments Account have the ability to submit payments to Suppliers and in some cases receive payments (such as manufacturer rebates). Restaurant is solely and exclusively responsible for the confidentiality of and controlling access to the Payments Account, including any use by any third party, and is further responsible for changing login information (such as passwords) to maintain continued confidentiality and limited access to the Payments Account. The Restaurant is deemed to be responsible for the conduct of its employees, contractors, and representatives. Cut+Dry will assume that if Restaurant’s login or credit or debit card or other permitted payment method is used to access the Sites, the user has the legal authority to use such login or payment method. Cut+Dry will not be responsible for any losses arising out of the unauthorized use of the Payments Account. Further, Restaurant shall be responsible for the security of data (including financial data) in Restaurant’s possession or control. Restaurant must comply with all applicable laws, operating regulations, and rules in relation to collection, security and dissemination of personal, financial or transaction information.
If connection with any approved Payments Account Restaurant hereby authorizes Cut+Dry and its affiliates to do the following until Restaurant revokes such authorization by reasonable notice:
(a) credit or debit amounts payable to or by Restaurant under these Terms to or from any bank accounts designated by Restaurant for use (“Restaurant Bank Accounts”); and
(b) initiate debits from or credits to Restaurant Bank Account(s) to correct any errors or temporarily debit de minimis amounts to verify accuracy of account information.
Restaurant agrees to be bound by the ACH Rules and agrees that all ACH transactions that it initiates will comply with all applicable laws. This authorization will remain in full force and effect until Restaurant notify us that it revokes it by contacting customer support or by closing the Restaurant’s Payments Account. You understand that Cut+Dry requires a reasonable time to act on a revocation, not to exceed five (5) business days.
For any transfer from or to a Restaurant Bank Account that fails, Restaurant authorizes Cut+Dry to re-try the transfer within 30 days. If Cut+Dry is unable to obtain payment due to nonsufficient funds or refused payments, Cut+Dry may charge a handling fee along with any fees incurred in connection with each attempt, in addition to the invoiced amount. That handling fee and fees incurred may also be debited from Restaurant Bank Account(s). Restaurant will promptly notify Cut+Dry if it intends to change or close any Bank Account so as to afford Cut+Dry a reasonable opportunity to discontinue any prescheduled transfer. Cut+Dry will not be responsible for fees charged to Restaurant by its bank for nonsufficient funds. Restaurant understands that this authorization will remain in effect until it cancels it in writing. Subject to applicable law, Restaurant hereby agrees that amounts for which Restaurant is responsible in connection with its use of the B2B Platform may be deducted from the Restaurant Bank Accounts.
Payment Terms (Consumer Market)
You shall be responsible for the timely payment of all product orders together with applicable fees, including but not limited to delivery/shipment fees and taxes.
In order to place an order on the Consumer Market, you will need to a valid credit card or other payment account details. You authorize Cut+Dry (or our agent) to charge your payment method for the amounts you owe. All stated amounts owed are exclusive of applicable taxes, unless otherwise stated, and you are solely responsible for the payment of any such taxes that may be imposed on your use of the services provided to you. If the payment is late or the payment method cannot be verified, is invalid, or is otherwise not acceptable, your order may be canceled and we may suspend or terminate your account and/or access to the service, however, we reserve the right to make multiple attempts to process any payment due until the payment is successfully processed. You agree that Cut+Dry may resubmit a payment transaction for processing to a payment network in the event a prior payment transaction was declined or returned.
To the extent the Sites permit you to set up recurring or subscription based payments, you agree that such recurring payments or subscription will automatically renew and you hereby authorize Cut+Dry to charge your provided payment method(s) until we receive notice from you to terminate such recurring payments or subscription. If you cancel an order or terminate a subscription any fees charged prior to the effective date of cancellation/termination or orders placed prior to cancellation/termination will not be refunded.
Payment Terms (B2B Platform)
In connection with a Payments Account (as defined above) or otherwise, features of the B2B Platform enable Restaurants to submit payment(s) (a “Payment”) to Suppliers. In connection with such a Payment to a Partner Supplier Cut+Dry acts as a third-party technology provider to, and facilitates payment processing on behalf of, the Supplier. In connection with a Payment to a Supplier that is not a Partner Supplier Cut+Dry acts as an agent of Restaurant to deliver the payment to the Supplier.
Independent of the charges invoiced by Suppliers to Restaurants for products ordered through the Platform Cut+Dry may directly impose fees on Restaurant for its use of the B2B Platform. For example, in connection with a credit card Payment Cut+Dry may impose a program fee for the service of facilitating the payment to the Partner Supplier. Such fees shall be communicated to the Restaurant from time to time with reasonable notice.
If Restaurant pays any amounts with a credit card or through an ACH transfer, Cut+Dry may seek pre-authorization of the applicable credit card account or verify the applicable bank account (as applicable) to verify that the payment method is valid and has the necessary funds or credit available to cover the Payment. If Restaurant chooses to store payment method information with Cut+Dry via the B2B Platform for its convenience and use in future transactions, Restaurant agrees that Cut+Dry may receive updated information on the payment method (such as card number or expiration date) through services available from the card networks and may update the payment method credentials stored with Cut+Dry from time to time. Payments made through the B2B Platform are also subject to the terms of Restaurant’s agreement with its payment method issuer. Should a Restaurant be entitled or subject to a refund, reversal, chargeback, or other adjustment associated with the Payment and such adjustment is not being provided directly by the Supplier, Restaurant hereby authorizes a credit to its payment method (as applicable) to the extent necessary to achieve that adjustment. Restaurant agrees that Cut+Dry, on behalf of the Supplier, may resubmit a payment transaction for processing to a payment network in the event a prior payment transaction was declined or returned.
Cut+Dry in its discretion may set limits on Restaurant’s use of the Sites, such as transaction limits on the dollar amount or number of Payments made within certain time periods. We may decline to process any Payment without any notice or delay processing of or hold or cancel processing of any Payment if we determine that Restaurant may have insufficient funds to cover the payment or that the underlying transaction or Payment itself is invalid, suspicious, involves misconduct or fraud, or otherwise violates applicable laws, these Terms, or any of Cut+Dry’s commercial agreements with its banking partners or Partner Suppliers related to the Sites, or exposes you, other Cut+Dry users, Suppliers, Cut+Dry partners, or Cut+Dry Entities to harm (such as, but not limited to, criminal activity).
Delivery; Product Warranty and Returns
If there is a question regarding shipping or delivery information related to products ordered on the B2B Platform Restaurants should contact the applicable Supplier.
If you are unsatisfied with a product ordered on the B2B Platform Restaurants should contact the applicable Supplier.
Sales; Fulfillment; Customer Service (B2B Platform)
The B2B Platform is a technology platform connecting Restaurants with independent food service distributors and others that provide the products offered through the B2B Platform. Restaurants acknowledge and agree that Cut+Dry does not itself prepare food or offer delivery services through the B2B Platform, and has no responsibility or liability for the acts or omissions of any Supplier. In connection with the B2B Platform Cut+Dry is not a merchant, seller of goods, or delivery service to Restaurant; it is an online connection platform. Supplier is the retailer; the services offered by Cut+Dry pursuant to the B2B Platform do not include any retail services or any food preparation services. Use of the Sites in no way represents any endorsement by Cut+Dry of a Supplier’s existence, legitimacy, ability, policies, or practices. Supplier is fully responsible for its fulfillment of any products purchased on the B2B Platform and any returns, mistakes or other customer service issues arising from the Supplier products. Unless otherwise stated the transportation and delivery of Supplier product and the coordination and cost of return shipping for a Supplier product (if applicable) is the Supplier’s responsibility. Title to products ordered on the B2B Platform, as well as the risk of loss for such products, is subject to agreement between the Restaurant and Supplier, and Cut+Dry hereby disclaims any liability in connection with such risk of loss. Cut+Dry will not assess or guarantee the suitability, legality or ability of any Supplier. Supplier is also responsible for sales, use, or other taxes and regulatory fees assessed, incurred, or required to be collected or paid for in connection with any advertisement, offer or sale of Supplier products (made on through or in connection with the B2B Platform). For the avoidance of doubt, Supplier is solely responsible for all customer service issues relating to Supplier products, including pricing, order fulfillment, order cancellation, returns, refunds and adjustments, rebates, functionality and warranty, technical support, and feedback concerning experiences with Supplier personnel, policies, or processes. Restaurants agree that Cut+Dry is not responsible for the Supplier’s food preparation or the safety of the food and does not verify Supplier’s compliance with applicable laws or regulations. Cut+Dry has no responsibility or liability for acts or omissions by any Supplier. Restaurant agrees that the goods that it purchases on the B2B Platform will be prepared by the Supplier it has selected, that title to the goods passes from the Supplier to you. You agree that Cut+Dry does not hold title to or acquires any ownership interest in any goods that Restaurant orders through the B2B Platform.
Suppliers each set their own cancellation and refund policies. Once a purchase has been made through the Sites, Restaurants will need to contact the Supplier directly to inquire if it can make a change to or cancel the purchase or whether Restaurant may receive a refund. For questions or customer service regarding a purchase or the product or service provided by a Supplier, please contact the Supplier directly.
Transactions Involving Alcohol
Cut+Dry from time to time provides services to food service distributors that hold alcoholic beverage licenses (“Alcohol Suppliers”) such that the Sites may from time to time give you the option to order alcohol products directly from certain Alcohol Suppliers. In such circumstances Cut+Dry acts as a third party technology provider and is not the retailer of such alcoholic products and does not hold title to or acquire any ownership interest in any alcohol products that you order through the Sites. You agree that Cut+Dry does not have any responsibility or liability to you or any other person for any alcoholic beverage products you may purchase from an Alcohol Supplier, including without limitation, any purchase or fulfillment warranty or obligations for the alcohol products (which shall run directly from Alcohol Supplier to the end-purchaser of the alcohol products) or for any Alcohol Supplier’s compliance with applicable law, including without limitation, local regulations regarding sale of alcohol.
You agree that you will only order alcohol products if you are 21 years of age or older. You also agree that, upon delivery of alcohol products, you will provide valid government-issued identification proving your age to the delivery person delivering the alcohol products and that the recipient will not be intoxicated when receiving delivery of such products. If you order alcohol products, you understand and acknowledge that Cut+Dry cannot accept your order of alcohol products, and the order will only be delivered if the Alcohol Supplier accepts your order. The delivery person reserves the right to refuse delivery if you are not 21 years old, if you cannot provide a valid government issued ID, if the name on your ID does not match the name on your order, or you are visibly intoxicated.

Nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (a) bring an individual action in small claims court; (b) pursue an enforcement action through the federal, state, provincial or local agency if that action is available; (c) seek injunctive relief in a court of law; or (d) to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim. Further, you may choose to pursue a dispute in court and not by arbitration if you opt-out of these arbitration procedures within 30 days of the date you first consent to these Terms (the “Opt-Out Period”). You may opt-out by submitting the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org: (1) your name; (2) your address; (3) a clear statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with us through arbitration. Any opt-out request received after the Opt-Out Period will not be valid and you must pursue your dispute in arbitration or small claims court. Your decision to opt-out of arbitration will not adversely affect your relationship with us.
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by certified mail, or by Federal Express (signature required) or, only if the other party has not provided a current physical address, then by electronic mail (“Notice”). The Notice must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Cut+Dry may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Cut+Dry must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any.
Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in San Mateo County, California, but if the claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (a) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (b) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or (c) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA rules. In that case, you will reimburse Cut+Dry for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA rules. Regardless of how the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
You also acknowledge and understand that, with respect to any dispute between you and Cut+Dry, suppliers or licensors (or their respective affiliates, agents, directors or employees), including any claims relating in any way to these Terms or the Sites, or any other aspect of our relationship: (a) You are giving up your right to have a trial by jury; (b) You are giving up your right to serve as a representative, as a private attorney general, or in any other representative capacity, or to participate as a member of a class of claimants, in any lawsuit involving any such dispute; and (c) any action or proceeding by you relating to such dispute must commence within one year after the cause of action accrues or it is forever barred.
If Cut+Dry changes this arbitration provision, you may reject the change by sending Cut+Dry written notice within 30 days of the change, in which case your right to use the Sites may be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected will survive.
The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement. If all or any part of this arbitration section is found to be unenforceable, then the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in effect under the “Severability” clause below, and the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described above will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms.
This agreement to arbitrate will not preclude you or Cut+Dry from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration, including without limitation orders to stay a court action, compel arbitration or confirm an arbitral award, from a court of competent jurisdiction. Furthermore, this agreement to arbitrate will not preclude you or Cut+Dry from (i) applying to the appropriate court of competent jurisdiction for a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, or other interim or conservatory relief, as necessary, or (ii) seeking relief in any state or federal court for disputes related to a violation or possible violation of Cut+Dry’s intellectual property rights.
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 San Francisco, California, 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 Sites 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.
Modifications and Service Monitoring
Cut+Dry may amend the Terms at any time with notice that we deem to be reasonable under the circumstances (each a “Revised Version”) by (i) posting revised Terms via the Sites, and/or (ii) notifying you of material changes, generally via email where practicable, and otherwise through the Sites. The Revised Version will be effective as of the time it is communicated, but will not apply retroactively. Your continued use of the Sites after the posting of a Revised Version constitutes your acceptance of such Revised Version. Any dispute between the parties that arose before the effective date of a Revised Version is governed by the Terms (including the binding individual arbitration clause) that was in place when the dispute arose.
Our Sites change from time to time and their form and functionality may change as we launch new products or features or make upgrades, patches or error corrections (“Updates”).

These Terms will apply to any and all Updates to the Sites. We will have no liability because of any Update to the Sites or any suspension or termination of your access to or use of the Sites.
Cut+Dry will not be liable or responsible to you, nor be deemed to have defaulted or breached these Terms, for any failure or delay in fulfilling or performing any term of these Terms when and if failure or delay is caused by or results from acts or circumstances beyond the reasonable control of Cut+Dry including but not limited to acts of God, flood, fire, regional or global pandemics, earthquake, explosion, governmental actions, war, invasion or hostilities (whether war is declared or not), terrorist threats or acts, riot, or other civil unrest, national emergency, revolution, insurrection, epidemic, lockouts, strikes, or other labor disputes (whether or not relating to either party’s workforce), the acts, decrees, legislation, regulations, or restrictions of any government, or restraints or delays affecting carriers or inability or delay in obtaining supplies of adequate or suitable materials, materials or telecommunication breakdown or power outage.
Severability and Waiver
If any of these Terms shall be deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that term shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining term or condition. No waiver by any party of any of these Terms will be effective unless explicitly set forth in writing and signed by the party so waiving. Except as otherwise set forth in these Terms, no failure to exercise, or delay in exercising, any rights, remedy, power, or privilege arising from these Terms will operate or be construed as a waiver thereof, nor will any single or partial exercise of any right, remedy, power or privilege preclude any other or further exercise thereof or exercising any other right, remedy, power, or privilege. NOTHING IN THESE TERMS WILL AFFECT ANY NON-WAIVABLE STATUTORY RIGHTS THAT APPLY TO YOU.
