Dinifi Website and Mobile App Terms of Service

Last updated on September 9th, 2016

1. About Dinifi

1.1 Dinifi Inc. own and operate this website (dinifi.com), the related mobile sites and mobile applications, and selected other domains (collectively, the "Sites"). These terms of use (the "Agreement") constitute a contract between you and us (Dinifi Inc.). By accessing and/or using the Sites, you agree to all the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If you do not agree, do not use the Sites. As used in this Agreement, "Dinifi," "we," "us," and "our" shall mean Dinifi Inc. and its subsidiaries and affiliates.

1.2 The restaurants available on our Sites operate independently and have entered into agreements with us to provide the food and delivery services available to you on the Sites. The restaurants are required to comply with federal, state and local laws, rules, regulations, and standards pertaining to the preparation, sale and marketing of food, including food preparation and safety and menu disclosure; Dinifi is not responsible for the restaurants' food preparation or safety and does not verify any restaurant's compliance with applicable laws. In addition, Dinifi does not guarantee the quality of what the restaurants sell, nor does it guarantee the services provided by the restaurant, including in those cases where the restaurant provides the delivery services. In addition, Dinifi does not independently verify representations made by restaurants regarding their food, including without limitation any menu- or restaurant-level descriptors or disclosures.

1.3 Some deliveries are provided by Dinifi's network of Dinifi Delivery Partners ("DDPs") working as independent contractors. DDPs have entered into agreements with Dinifi, which require DDPs to comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws, rules and regulations, including without limitation traffic laws, requirements of the applicable Department of Motor Vehicle, and applicable insurance requirements. Dinifi shall not be liable or responsible for any delivery services provided by DSPs or any errors or misrepresentations made by them.

2. Using Dinifi

2.1 You may only use the Sites to order if you are the authorized holder of the credit card used for payment or an authorized user of a corporate account and if you are able to form a binding contract with us. In addition, if you are a minor in the jurisdiction in which you reside (generally under the age of 18), you must have the permission of, and be directly supervised by, your parent or legal guardian to use the Sites, and your parent or legal guardian must read and agree to this Agreement prior to your using the Sites. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you are prohibited from using the Sites if you are under the age of 13.

2.2 Use of the Sites to order requires that you register and/or create an account ("Account"). To register and create an Account, you must create a username and password and provide certain personal information. In consideration of the use of the Sites' services, you agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the registration form, and (b) maintain and promptly update the personal information you provide to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or Grubhub has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Dinifi has the right to block your current or future use of the Sites (or any portion thereof).

2.3 You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your Account and password and for all activities or any other actions that occur under or are taken in connection with your password or Account. You agree to (a) immediately notify Grubhub of any known or suspected unauthorized use(s) of your password or Account, or any known or suspected breach of security, including loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure of your password or credit card information; and (b) ensure that you exit from your Account at the end of each session. Dinifi will not be liable for any injury, loss or damage of any kind arising from or relating to your failure to comply with (a) and (b) or for any acts or omissions by you or someone else using your Account and/or password.

3. Our Alcohlic Bbeverages Policy

3.1 Some jurisdictions permit the ordering and delivery of alcoholic beverages. In such jurisdictions, if you place an order that includes any alcoholic beverage, you acknowledge that you are at least 21 years of age. Upon delivery or pickup, as applicable, you shall present a government-issued identification card, evidencing your age. If you do not comply with these terms, you agree that the alcoholic beverage(s) will not be released to you, and you shall forfeit the cost of such beverages.

4. Our Credit/Refund Policy

4.1 Unless prohibited by law, in the event of any error in your order or the amount you were charged, you are entitled to a credit, provided it is brought to our attention within 60 days of your order date. If you do not raise the issue within 60 days of your order date, you waive the ability to receive a credit for any error.

6.5 Ratings And Reviews

The Sites may allow you to rate and post reviews of restaurants and other businesses ("Ratings and Reviews").

This Agreement will govern any disputes arising before the effective date of the Updated Terms.

14. DISPUTE RESOLUTION

14.1 Arbitration

You agree that all claims, disputes or disagreements that may arise out of the interpretation or performance of this Agreement, or that in any way relate to your use of the Sites, the Materials and/or other content on the Sites, shall be submitted exclusively to binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and 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. Arbitration means that an arbitrator and not a judge or jury will decide the claim. Rights to prehearing exchange of information and appeals may also be limited in arbitration. You acknowledge and agree that you and Grubhub are each waiving the right to a trial by jury. You further acknowledge and agree that you waive your right to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Grubhub 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. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this "Dispute Resolution" section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this "Dispute Resolution" section will survive any termination of these Terms of Use. You further acknowledge that any claim arising under this Agreement will be brought within one year of its accrual or it will be waived.

15 WAIVER AND SEVERABILITY

Any waiver by Dinifi of any provision of this Agreement must be in writing. If any portion of this Agreement is found to be void, invalid or otherwise unenforceable, then that portion shall be deemed to be superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that matches the intent of the original provision as closely as possible. The remainder of this Agreement shall continue to be enforceable and valid according to terms contained herein.
