These Terms of Use do not alter in any way the terms or conditions of any other agreement you may have with FoodHub, or its subsidiaries or affiliates, for products, services or otherwise. If you are using the Site or Service on behalf of any entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to accept these Terms of Use on such entity's behalf, and that such entity agrees to indemnify you and FoodHub for violations of these Terms. These terms apply to users that become members of FoodHub ("Members") as well as those who are just visiting the Sites.

    1. GENERAL TERMS

      1. ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS

        FoodHub provides a collection of online services on the Sites, including food producer, buyer, distributor and associate member profiles and directories, forums, posting/listing tools, advertising, dynamic search, various email services, promotional and marketing services, and educational and other content (referred to hereafter as "the Service"), which are provided subject to the TOU. By using or accessing the Sites or the Service in any way, you are agreeing to comply with the TOU.

        Should you object to any term or condition of the TOU, any guidelines, or any subsequent modifications thereto or become dissatisfied with FoodHub in any way, your sole recourse is to discontinue use of FoodHub.

        FoodHub has the right, but is not obligated, to enforce the TOU through a variety of means including without limitation self-help, community moderation, invoking its administrative privileges to delete, modify or change information and content provided by members, cancelling your membership and/or restricting your use of the Site, active investigation, litigation and prosecution. Enforcement of these TOU is solely at FoodHub's discretion, and failure to enforce such rules in some instances does not constitute a waiver of our right to enforce such rules in other instances. In addition, these TOU do not create any private right of action on the part of any third party or any reasonable expectation that the Sites will not contain any content or conduct that is prohibited by the TOU.

      2. PRIVACY POLICY

        Please refer to our Privacy Policy for information on how FoodHub collects, uses and discloses personally identifiable information from its users.

        • use automated means, including spiders, robots, crawlers, data mining tools, or the like to download data from the Service - unless expressly permitted by FoodHub
        • attempt to gain unauthorized access to FoodHub's computer systems or engage in any activity that disrupts, diminishes the quality of, interferes with the performance of, or impairs the functionality of, the Service or the FoodHub website; or
        • use any form of automated device or computer program that enables the submission of postings on FoodHub without each posting being manually entered by the author thereof (an "automated posting device"), including without limitation, the use of any such automated posting device to submit postings in bulk, or for automatic submission of postings at regular intervals.

      8. PROVENANCE OF PRODUCTS

        The mission and spirit of FoodHub is to create economic opportunity for local producers in their regions.

For the purposes of clear communication, you must clearly and prominently specify in the narrative portion of your profile any products not grown, produced or manufactured by you, and, to the best of your knowledge, explain the provenance of such products.

        Your interactions and business dealings with organizations and/or individuals found on or through the Sites or the Service, including payment and delivery of goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such organizations and/or individuals. You should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any online or offline transaction with any of these third parties.

        You agree that FoodHub shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such dealings or interactions. If there is a dispute between participants on this site, or between users and any third party, you understand and agree that FoodHub is under no obligation to become involved. In the event that you have a dispute with one or more other users, you hereby release FoodHub and Ecotrust, its officers, employees, agents and successors in rights from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind or nature, known or unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes and/or our service. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."

      2. AUTOMATIC RENEWAL

        For paid membership plans, your membership plan will be automatically renewed at the end of each term on the same numerical day the membership plan was activated (or on the last day of the month if there isn't the same numerical day for a given month) unless you have cancelled your membership as set forth above or you provide notice of nonrenewal to FoodHub by accessing the "My FoodHub" section of the site (www.food-hub.org/dashboard) or by sending written notice of nonrenewal to meet@food-hub.org at least 24 hours prior to the end of the prior term. For example, for monthly membership plans, if you activate the membership plan on the 15th of the month, the plan will renew on the 15th day of each month thereafter unless you have provided at least 24 hours prior notice of nonrenewal. For annual plans, if you activate the membership plan on June 15th of a given year, the plan will renew on June 15th of each year unless you have provided notice of nonrenewal at least 24 hours prior to such renewal date.

        Upon renewal, the credit card designated on your account will automatically be billed the applicable membership fee then in effect at the time of renewal, as set forth on the Sites. (www.food-hub.org/upgrade) If you provide notice of nonrenewal, then your membership benefits will terminate at the end of the term, but the other terms and conditions of these Terms of Use shall still apply. YOU HEREBY AUTHORIZE FOODHUB TO AUTOMATICALLY CHARGE THE PAYMENT METHOD YOU PROVIDE FOR ALL MEMBERSHIP FEES AND RENEWAL FEES INCURRED BY YOU IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICE ON A RECURRING BASIS.

        We reserve the right to change our membership fees and the terms, service and features of our membership plans at any time without notice by posting such changes to the Sites. All such changes to membership plan pricing shall be applicable to any renewal term, and you are responsible for reviewing the terms prior to the end of the previous term.

      3. ALL-ACCESS PLAN MONEY BACK GUARANTEE.
