THE SECTION BELOW ENTITLED “DISPUTES” CONTAINS AN AGREEMENT TO RESOLVE DISPUTES IN BINDING ARBITRATION AND TO WAIVE YOUR PARTICIPATION IN CLASS ACTION CLAIMS. PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS.
We have created the Website to serve as a marketplace. BiteSquad is a merchant of food ordering and delivery services. BiteSquad does not sell or control the production of any food produced at the Restaurants. Rather this marketplace provides buyers the ability to search for and find local Restaurants that deliver or make food available for pick up.
The Restaurants are obligated by BiteSquad to comply with federal, state and local laws, rules, regulations, and standards pertaining to food preparation, sale, marketing and safety. However, it is critical for users to understand that BiteSquad does not in any way independently verify the credentials, representations or products of Restaurants, the ingredients or the quality of any products, or that a Restaurant is in compliance with applicable laws. Buyers must make themselves comfortable through information provided by Restaurants on the Website or as requested by buyers directly from the Restaurants as to the quality and reliability of the Restaurants, as well as to their compliance with applicable laws. BiteSquad does not in any way guaranty the quality of any food or that any food complies with applicable laws. In addition, a Restaurant may represent that food preparation is in accordance with special standards such as "organic," "kosher," "macrobiotic" or allergen-specific standards such as "nut-free," "gluten-free," or "lactose-free." However, BiteSquad does not independently investigate or verify such representations. BiteSquad shall not be liable or responsible for any food or services offered by Restaurants that is unhealthy, is the cause of injury, that is otherwise unacceptable to buyers or that does not meet the expectation of buyers in any manner. Buyers are solely responsible for verifying the accuracy of delivery addresses, and BiteSquad shall have no liability or responsibility for any such erroneous addresses.
Please direct all complaints concerning Restaurants to BiteSquad's attention as indicated on the Website.
ORDERING AND PAYMENT
All ordering is performed online. Buyers are usually billed directly by BiteSquad for their orders, and "BiteSquad" will be the name that appears on your payment records, but BiteSquad shall not in any manner be considered the seller of the food.
BiteSquad takes customer satisfaction very seriously. In the case of problems with your food order, please contact the Restaurant directly. If you have not been able to resolve your issue with the Restaurant to your satisfaction, please contact BiteSquad and we will try to assist you. In appropriate cases, if you have already been billed by BiteSquad, BiteSquad will issue full or partial refunds. For example: if you did not receive your order or received an incorrect order, you may be issued a full refund; if part of your order is missing, we may issue a partial refund. In every event, we will do our best to ensure your satisfaction. If you were billed by BiteSquad.com, BiteSquad.com will provide a full or partial refund if, for example, you did not receive your food order, or part of your order, on a case to case basis.
If at anytime, BiteSquad offers gift cards, the following terms shall apply: (1) gift cards cannot be combined with cash, (2) gift cards are redeemable only with online payments; (3) gift cards are not redeemable for cash, (4) lost, stolen or damaged gift cards may be replaced only with valid proof of purchase and to the extent of the remaining gift card balance appears in BiteSquad's records, (5) gift cards are not a credit or debit card, (6) there are no expiration dates and no fees for purchased gift cards, and (7) expiration dates or other terms may apply to promotional or service credit gift cards not purchased directly by a consumer.
Referral credit can be canceled at anytime at the sole discretion of Bite Squad. Referral codes are not permitted to be placed on any deal or coupon websites or apps.

You agree that all disputes between you and us will be resolved by binding arbitration as provided for in this provision entitled “Disputes.”
THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION IS MEANT TO HELP RESOLVE DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US. IT DICTATES THAT ALL DISPUTES CONNECTED TO THIS CONTRACT WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION. PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY.
Arbitration is a form of private dispute resolution in which people waive their rights to:
Instead, people submit disputes to a neutral third party (“arbitrator”) for a binding decision. Unless noted otherwise, entering into this Agreement waives your right to litigate claims (sue) and be heard by a judge or jury. Without this provision, you and we may otherwise have a right or opportunity to:
You have the right to opt out of this provision by giving us written notice within 30 days after becoming subject to this Agreement. If we don’t receive written notice during that time, you cannot opt out and agree that provisions here apply.
In this provision, “you” and “us” includes the employees, parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, beneficiaries, agents, and assigns of you and us.
This provision applies to each and every claim, dispute, or controversy related in any way to:
Neither you nor we have the right to litigate any claim in court or the right to a jury trial on any claim, except as consistent with this Agreement. YOU AGREE THAT YOU ARE VOLUNTARILY AND KNOWINGLY WAIVING ANY RIGHT YOU MAY HAVE TO GO TO COURT, HAVE A JURY TRIAL, OR PARTICIPATE AS A MEMBER OF A CLASS OF CLAIMANTS. IN ADDITION, NEITHER YOU NOR WE MAY SERVE AS A REPRESENTATIVE, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, OR IN ANY OTHER REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY. ALSO, NEITHER YOU NOR WE MAY PARTICIPATE AS A MEMBER OF A CLASS OF CLAIMANTS.
All claims will be resolved individually by binding arbitration on an individual basis. Claims made and remedies sought as part of a class action, private attorney general, or other representative actions are subject to arbitration on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis. The arbitrator cannot conduct class-wide proceedings. THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY CLAIMS TO BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS BASIS. YOU CANNOT COMBINE OR JOIN ANY OF YOUR CLAIMS WITH ANY OTHER CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT YOU ARE VOLUNTARILY AND KNOWINGLY WAIVING ANY RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A REPRESENTATIVE OR MEMBER OF ANY CLASS OF CLAIMANTS PERTAINING TO ANY CLAIM.
We agree that this agreement to arbitrate is made in connection with a transaction involving interstate commerce and will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, as it may be amended. If the Federal Arbitration Act does not apply, the substantive law of the State of Minnesota will govern this provision and any legal action arising out of or related in any respect to this Website or the BiteSquad Services shall be brought solely in either the applicable federal or state courts located in or with jurisdiction over Hennepin County, Minnesota; subject, however, to the right of BiteSquad, at BiteSquad's sole discretion, to bring an action to seek injunctive relief to enforce this Agreement or to stop or prevent an infringement of proprietary or other third party rights (or any similar cause of action) in any applicable court in any jurisdiction where jurisdiction exists with regard to a user.
Location, Procedures, and Authority
Any arbitration hearing that you want to attend will be held in the federal judicial district that includes your billing address at the time the claim is filed. The party filing the claim may file it at:
The organization selected will run the arbitration following its procedures in effect at the time of filing, subject to this provision. If you do not agree to file your claim with AAA, and parties cannot agree on another arbitration organization, one will be appointed by a court following the Federal Arbitration Act. If the organization’s rules and this provision conflict, this provision will govern. The arbitration will be held before a single arbitrator. The arbitration will not be consolidated with any other arbitration proceeding. Any decision made then will be final and binding on the parties. Judgment may be entered in a court of competent jurisdiction. AAA rules and forms may be obtained at:
American Arbitration Association
The arbitrator will:
The arbitrator can award the winning party all remedies available at common law, by statute or in equity but we agree the arbitrator cannot award any punitive damages, except to the extent such damages would be available in litigation.
We will pay all arbitration expenses, including filing, administrative, hearing, and arbitration fees, to the extent that they are more than you would have to pay to file a lawsuit in court. Throughout the arbitration, each party will pay his or her own attorney fees and expenses (such as expert witness fees). If you win in the arbitration of any claim against us, we’ll reimburse you for any fees you paid to the arbitration organization related to the arbitration. [However, you agree to promptly reimburse us for all fees paid on your behalf if the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim (or the relief sought) was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose.]
Binding Effect, Survival, and Severability
Except as noted above, the arbitrator’s decision will be final and binding on all parties subject to this provision—you, us, and heirs, successors, assigns, and related third parties of you and us. This provision will survive termination of your use of the Website or BiteSquad Services. If any part of this provision is deemed invalid or unenforceable under any law or statute consistent with the FAA, that finding will not cancel any remaining part of this provision, the contract, or any other agreement between you and us. However, class arbitration prohibition is not severable from the rest of this provision. If a court deems class arbitration prohibition invalid and unenforceable, any later class action or representative proceeding will be in a court of law and not subject to binding arbitration.
