These terms and conditions (together with the documents referred to in them) (the Terms) govern your relationship with us when you use our app, MEAL IQ (the App), from the website www.getmealiq.com, access and use the App, and, if applicable, subscribe to the services offered via the App (the Services).
Please refer carefully to these Terms before you start to use or access the App and (if applicable) the Services.
By using the App and (if applicable) the Services, you will be deemed to have understood and accepted these Terms, which form a binding agreement between you and us.
You and we acknowledge that the contract formed under these Terms is between you and us only.
OTHER APPLICABLE TERMS
These Terms refer to and incorporate the following additional documents, which also apply to your use of the App and (if applicable) the Services:
CHANGES TO THESE TERMS
At any time, we may amend these Terms to ensure that we remain compliant with relevant laws and regulations and/or to ensure that we are constantly improving your experience using the App and the Services.
We will notify you of changes to these Terms through messaging on the App. By continuing to use the App and (if applicable) the Services after changes are made and notified, you are accepting those changes and will be bound by them. If you do not agree to any changes, you should immediately cease using the App and the Services (please see the Cancelling Your Subscription section below for more detail on your right to cancel and receive a partial refund in these circumstances).
HOW THE APP WORKS
We offer various Services via the App, including those which allow you to:
create bespoke meal plans tailored to your specifications;
benefit from intelligent meal planning linked to your stated shopping habits and preferences;
generate shopping lists based on your recipe choices and meal plans; and
link your shopping lists to your online shopping account(s) with third party grocery suppliers.
The list above is not an exhaustive list of the Services and we may decide to offer additional Services, or cease to provide any Services, at any time.
You do not have to register to the App, but the Services are available only to users who (a) register and set up an account; and (b) pay the relevant Subscription Fees (see the Subscription Fees, Prices and Payment section below). Users who have registered and are paying Subscription Fees are called Subscribers (and Subscribe and Subscription will be construed accordingly).
In order to use the Services, you must be at least 18 years old and have a smart phone/tablet with an internet connection.
You agree that you will provide truthful and accurate information when registering on the App. The decision to register a password is in our discretion and we may revoke your password at any time.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account information, and you are responsible for all activities that occur under your password and your account, and for any access to or use of the App and/or the Services by you or any person or entity using your password, whether or not such access or use has been authorised by you.
You must immediately notify us of any unauthorised use of your password or account or any other breach of security relating to the App and/or the Services. We will not be liable for any loss or damage whatsoever resulting from the disclosure of your password contrary to these Terms.
You are responsible for ensuring that the information we hold about you is up to date. Please amend your details as appropriate from time to time or email firstname.lastname@example.org to notify us of any changes.
SUBSCRIPTION FEES AND PAYMENT
Access to the Services is subject to payment of a monthly subscription fee (the Subscription Fee).
Current Subscription Fee prices will appear on the relevant page(s) of the App. We may change our prices at any time by posting new prices on the App, but these changes will not affect you during any then-current Subscription period. If your Subscription Fee is due to change, we will send you an email notification at least 7 days before the change is to take effect. With the notification, we will offer you the option of ending your Subscription (without penalty) or accepting and continuing with your Subscription at the new price.
We accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express cards for payment. By paying using your credit or debit card you confirm that the card is yours and that there are sufficient funds or credit available to cover the relevant fees.
The Subscription Fee is charged monthly in advance, on the same calendar day as the day on which you first Subscribed to the Service up until you end the Subscription. In the event the Subscription Fee cannot be charged on the same calendar day in a certain month, e.g. if such day should not occur on a business day (except for public holidays) the Subscription Fee will be charged on or around the next business day.
SPECIAL OFFERS AND TRIALS
We may from time to time run special offers whereby the standard monthly Subscription Fee is discounted for a certain number of months (for example: the first 3 months of your Subscription).
We may also from time to time offer trials. Trials allow you to try the Services for a limited period of time (the Trial Period) at a discounted rate, and you can cancel at any time during the Trial Period by using the functionality provided in the App. If you cancel during the Trial Period, your Subscription will cease at the end of the Trial Period and no further sums will be payable. If you do not cancel during the Trial Period, your Subscription will continue and you will be charged the standard monthly Subscription Fee from the end of the Trial Period until you cancel your Subscription in accordance with these Terms.
CANCELLING YOUR SUBSCRIPTION
Cancellation by you: You can cancel your Subscription at any time using the functionality provided in the App. Your cancellation will take effect at the end of your then-current Subscription period (for example, if you have a monthly Subscription, at the end of the then-current month; if you have an annual Subscription, at the end of the then-current year).
Cancelling your Subscription early because of something we have done or are going to do: You may also cancel your Subscription early (i.e. within your then-current Subscription period) if:
we have told you about an upcoming significant change to your Subscription or these Terms to which you do not agree;
we have told you about an error in the price or description of your Subscription and you do not wish to proceed with the Subscription at the correct price or description;
we have suspended the supply of the App and/or Services for technical or other reasons, or we notify you that we are going to suspend the App and/or Services for such reasons, in either case for a period of more than 7 days; or
you have a legal right to end the Subscription (and the contract between us) because of something we have done in breach of these Terms or in breach of your legal rights.
If you want to cancel for any of the above reasons, please contact us as described in the Communications Between Us and Support section below. Cancellation will take effect on our receipt of written notice and will we will refund you any Subscription Fees that you have paid us in advance that relate to any remaining and unexpired period of your Subscription.
