Farmer Profiles and Listings
As a Member, you may create Listings within a Farmer Profile. To this end, you will be asked a variety of questions about the products to be listed, including, but not limited to, the location of the farm, type(s) of products, social networking site (SNS) links, current availability of the products and pricing and related rules and financial terms. In order to be featured in Listings, all Farmers must have a valid physical address and provide comestible items that have been grown or sourced as locally as possible and assembled, prepared and packaged in the neighborhood of sale. Listings will be made publicly available via the Site, Application and Services. Other Members will be able to buy your products via the Site, Application and Services based upon the information provided in your Listing. You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for any and all Listings you post. Accordingly, you represent and warrant that any Listing you post and the purchase of a product in a Listing you post (i) will not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties and (ii) will (a) be in compliance with all applicable laws, Tax requirements, and rules and regulations that may apply to any product included in a Listing you post, including, but not limited to, zoning laws and (b) not conflict with the rights of third parties. Agrowculture assumes no responsibility for a Farmer’s compliance with any applicable laws, rules and regulations. You understand and agree that Agrowculture does not act as an insurer or as a contracting agent for, or representative of, you as a Farmer, and if a Consumer requests a product, any agreement you enter into with such Consumer is between you and the Consumer; Agrowculture is not a party thereto. Agrowculture reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Listing for any reason, including Listings that Agrowculture, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms or otherwise harmful to the Site, Application or Services and its users. When you create a Listing, you may also choose to include certain requirements which must be met by the Consumers who are eligible to request a product of your Farm, including, but not limited to, requiring Consumers to have a profile picture, verified phone number, to order or pick up a product or have it delivered. Members shall fulfill these identification requirements before placing an order. Agrowculture will never require and no Farmer should request, a Member’s Social Security Number, date of birth or other personal identification information. Farmers agree to tender sold food products, as agreed between the Farmer and Customer, on the date specified and within the time window agreed. Failure to do so will result in the termination of farmer fees. Farmer fees will be refunded to a Customer if the Customer demonstrates that the Farmer misrepresented portion size, quality or any other characteristic that has been described within the listing. You acknowledge and agree that, as a Farmer, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals who are employed by or are agents of the Farm. Agrowculture recommends that Farmers obtain appropriate insurance for their Farms. Please review any insurance policy that you may have for your Farm carefully, and in particular please make sure that you are familiar with and understand any exclusions to, and any deductibles that may apply for, such insurance policy
Agrowculture does not endorse any Members or any Farmers. In addition, although these Terms require Members to provide accurate information, we do not attempt to confirm, and do not confirm, any Member’s purported identity.

Orders and Financial Terms for Farmers
If you are a Farmer and a product is requested via the Site, Application and Services, you will be required to either confirm or reject the purchase within 24 hours of when the product is requested (as determined by Agrowculture in its sole discretion) or the payment and transaction request will be automatically cancelled. When a product is requested via the Site, Application and Services, we will share with you (i) the first and last name of the Customer who has requested the product, (ii) a link to the Customers Agrowculture Account profile page, if they have one (iii) the names of any members of an SNS with whom you are "friends" or associated on the SNS if such individuals are also "friends" or associated with the Customer on such SNS, and (iv) an indication that the name that the Customer provided to Agrowculture when the Customer became a Member matches the name that the Customer provided to the SNSs to which the Customer has linked his or her Agrowculture Account, so that you can view such information before confirming or rejecting the order. If you are unable to confirm or decide to reject an order of a product within such 24-hour period, any amounts collected by Agrowculture for the requested order will be refunded to the applicable Customer’s credit card and any pre-authorization of such credit card will be released. When you confirm an order requested by a Customer, Agrowculture will send you an email, text message or message via the Application confirming such order, depending on the selections you make via the Site, Application and Services. The fees displayed in each Listing are comprised of the Farmer Fees (defined below) and the Convenience Fees (defined below.) Where applicable, Taxes may be charged in addition to the Farmer Fees and Convenience Fees. The Farmer Fees, the Convenience Fees and applicable Taxes are collectively referred to in these Terms as the "Total Fees". The Farmer and not Agrowculture determines the Farmer and Convenience Fees. Agrowculture will collect the Total Fees at the time of order confirmation (i.e. when the Farmer confirms the order within 24 hours of the order request) and will remit the Farmer Fees (less Agrowculture’s Fees (if any – defined below)) to the Farmer within 24 hours of when the Customer receives the product.
Orders and Financial Terms for Customers
The Farmers, not Agrowculture, are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed orders and making available any Comestibles or products reserved through the Site, Application and Services. If you, as a Customer, choose to enter into a transaction with a Farmer for the order of a Comestible or product, you agree and understand that you will be required to enter into an agreement with the Farmer and you agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with such transaction imposed by the Farmer. You acknowledge and agree that you, and not Agrowculture, will be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements, and Agrowculture is not a party to such agreements and disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements.
In consideration for providing the Services herein, Agrowculture collects service fees from Farmers and Suppliers ("Service Fees") in two ways. Service Fees will be processed in two (2) ways: (i) (“Supplier Fees”) A Supplier is charged a percentage of the total sales made through the Site, Application and Services (ii) a Farmer is charged a membership fee based on the volume of Comestibles or products sold annually or based on the production capacity of the farm itself ("Farmer Fees"). Where applicable, Taxes may also be charged in addition to the Farmer Fees. Farmer Fees are deducted from the Comestibles or product Fees before remitting the Comestibles or product Fees to the Farmer, within 24 hours of when the Customer arrives to pick-up the Comestibles or products or once the Farmer has delivered them. Balances will be remitted to Farmers via check, PayPal, direct deposit or other payment methods described on the Site or via the Application, in U.S. dollars (USD). Except as otherwise provided herein, Service Fees are non-refundable.
General Order and Financial Terms Cancellations and Refunds
If, as a Customer, you cancel your requested order before the requested order is confirmed by a Farmer, Agrowculture will refund any Comestibles or product Fees collected for such requested order within a commercially reasonable time. If, as a Customer, you wish to cancel a confirmed order made via the Site, Application and Services, the cancellation policy of the Farmer contained in the applicable Listing will apply to such cancellation. If a Farmer cancels a confirmed order made via the Site, Services, and Application, Agrowculture will refund the Total Fees for such order to the applicable Customer within a commercially reasonable time of the cancellation. If a Farmer cancelled a confirmed order and you, as a Customer, have not received an email or other communication from Agrowculture, please contact Agrowculture athttp://www.Agrowculture.org/home/contact.
In some instances, Customers may be required to make recurring, incremental payments toward the Total Fees owed for a confirmed order before beginning his or her stay at the applicable Comestibles or product (collectively, "Recurring Payments"). More information on Recurring Payments will be made available via the Site, Application and Services, if applicable. If Recurring Payments apply to your payment obligations for Total Fees owed for a confirmed order, you authorize Agrowculture to collect the Total Fees in the increments and at the frequency associated with the applicable Recurring Payments, identified on the Site, Application and Services.

Controlling Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of New York and the United States of America, without regard to its conflict-of-law provisions. You and we agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state court located in New York County, New York, New York or a United States District Court, Southern District of New York located in New York, New York for any actions for which the parties retain 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, as set forth in the Dispute Resolution provision below.
You and Agrowculture agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or to the use of the Services or use of the Site or Application (collectively, "Disputes") will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains 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. You acknowledge and agree that you and Agrowculture are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Agrowculture 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.
Arbitration Rules and Governing Law.
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the "AAA Rules") then in effect, except as modified by this "Dispute Resolution" section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section. Arbitration Process. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules.
Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000, Agrowculture will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
Notwithstanding the provisions of the "Modification" section above, if Agrowculture changes this "Dispute Resolution" section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email to firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the "Last Updated Date" above or in the date of Agrowculture’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Agrowculture in accordance with the provisions of this "Dispute Resolution" section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).
The failure of Agrowculture to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Agrowculture. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
If you have any questions about these Terms or any App Store Sourced Application, please contact Agrowculture at email@example.com.
As used in this policy, the terms "using" and "processing" information include using cookies on a computer, subjecting the information to statistical or other analysis and using or handling information in any way, including, but not limited to collecting, storing, evaluating, modifying, deleting, using, combining, disclosing and transferring information within our organization.
Information Collection and Use
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Site, Application, services, features and content, to administer your use of the Site and Application (together, the "Service") and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Site and Application.
Personally Identifiable Information
When you register with us through the Site or Application and become a Member and when you choose to place an order, or when you wish to contact another Member, we will ask you for personally identifiable information. This refers to information about you that can be used to contact or identify you ("Identity Information"). Identity Information includes, but is not limited to, your name, phone number, email address, and home postal address, but does not include your credit card number or billing information. In order to process some of your transactions through the Site and Application, we may also ask for your credit card number and other billing information ("Billing Information") (Identity Information and Billing Information together, "Personal Information"). If the address of a Listing you post matches that of your credit card billing address, that address would be considered Identity Information. Some Personal Information is required, like your name and email address, and other Personal Information is optional, like your date of birth. We reserve the right to require address confirmation for orders included in Listings. If we require such confirmation, we will send a code via postal mail to the address contained in a Listing and ask you to enter the code via the Site, Application and Service in order to confirm the Comestibles or product included in the applicable Listing. We use your Personal Information to provide the Service and administer your inquiries. We collect Personal Information in connection with your registration to join the Service. You can register to join via the Site or Application by completing the required forms. You can also register to join by logging into online accounts you may have with third party service providers ("SNS")(e.g. Facebook); each such account, a "Third Party Account", via our Site or Application as described below. As part of the functionality of the Site, Service and Application, you may link your Agrowculture Account with Third Party Accounts, by either: (i) providing your Third Party Account login information to Agrowculture through the Site, Service or Application; or (ii) allowing Agrowculture to access your Third Party Account, as is permitted under the applicable terms and conditions that govern your use of each Third Party Account. You represent that you are entitled to disclose your Third Party Account login information to Agrowculture and/or grant Agrowculture access to your Third Party Account (including, but not limited to, for use for the purposes described herein), without breach by you of any of the terms and conditions that govern your use of the applicable Third Party Account and without obligating Agrowculture to pay any fees or making Agrowculture subject to any usage limitations imposed by the applicable SNS. If you decide to register by logging into a Third Party Account via our Site or Application, we will obtain the Personal Information you have provided to the applicable SNS (such as your "real" name, email address, profile picture, names of SNS friends, names of SNS groups to which you belong, other information you make publicly available via the applicable SNS and/or other information you authorize Agrowculture to access by authorizing the SNS to provide such information) from your Third Party Accounts and use that information to create your Agrowculture Account and Agrowculture Account profile page and you will become a Member. Depending on the Third Party Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such Third Party Accounts, you understand that by granting us access to the Third Party Accounts, we will access, make available and store (if applicable and as permitted by the SNS and authorized by you) the information in your Third Party Accounts so that it is available on and through your Agrowculture Account on the Site, Service and Application. If there is information about your "friends" or people with whom you are associated in your Third Party Account, the information we obtain about those "friends" or people with whom you are associated, may also depend on the privacy settings such people have with the applicable SNS. We also collect the other information that you provide as part of registration and the administration and personalization of your Agrowculture Account profile (e.g., without limitation, zip code (on its own) and individual preferences or demographic information) ("Non-Identifying Information"). We use your Personal Information (in some cases, in conjunction with your Non-Identifying Information) mainly to provide the Service, complete your transactions, and administer your inquiries. Certain Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of your Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be identified. But the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other non-identifying information (for example, your demographic information). We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information and aggregate it with information collected from other Agrowculture Users (defined below) to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of the Service and to analyze and understand how our Site, Application and Service are used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically, for instance to deliver a product to you according to your preferences or restrictions. We also use your Personal Information to contact you with Agrowculture newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications or update your "Notifications" information. (See "Changing or Deleting Information," below.) Please note that we may also use your Personal Information to contact you with information related to your use of the Service; you may not opt out of these notifications.
When you visit the Site and Application, whether as a Member or a non-registered user just browsing (any of these, an "Agrowculture User"), our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website ("Log Data"). This Log Data may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type or the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Site and Application, pages of our Site and Application that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on our Site and Application, access times and dates, and other statistics. We use this information to monitor and analyze use of the Site, Application and the Service and for the Site and Application's technical administration, to increase our Site and Application's functionality and user-friendliness, and to better tailor our Site and Application to our visitors' needs. We also use this information to verify that visitors to the Site meet the criteria required to process their requests. We do not treat Log Data as Personal Information or use it in association with other Personal Information, though we may aggregate, analyze and evaluate such information for the same purposes as stated above regarding other Non-Identifying Information.
Our Site and Application may contain electronic images known as Web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs) and are used along with cookies to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how our Site and Application are used and may be used in some of our emails to let us know which emails and links have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our customer communications and marketing campaigns. Emailing Via an Agrowculture Account
As part of the Service, Agrowculture Users may communicate with Agrowculture Members through use of the "Contact Farmer" feature on the Site and Application. Where Agrowculture Users have selected the option of adding one or more email addresses to an online form, the message they create in the corresponding template will be sent from Agrowculture to those email addresses on their behalf. These email addresses will be used only for the purpose of sending the email communication to the addressee. Via the "Contact Farmer" feature of the Site and Application, you may also speak with other Agrowculture Members over the phone. In these instances, Agrowculture will not share your phone number with the other Agrowculture Member, but will use your phone number to contact you over the phone to connect you with the other Agrowculture Member.
Identity theft and the practice currently known as "phishing" are of great concern to Agrowculture. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your Agrowculture Account ID, login password, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication. For more information about phishing, visit the Federal Trade Commission's website at http://www.ftc.gov. Information Sharing and Disclosure
The Site, Application and Service can be used to facilitate the listing and order of Comestibles or products. Listings for such Comestibles or products are made available via the Site, Application and Service by Farmers. Listings posted by Farmers, ratings and reviews of Farmers and Customers, and the Profile Information (as defined below) of Farmers and Customers, are visible to any Agrowculture User.
Agrowculture Members and Users
When you create an Agrowculture Account, we will set up an Agrowculture Account profile page for you. Your Agrowculture Account profile page will include your first name and last initial. You can select the other items of Personal Information that you wish to be included in your Agrowculture Account profile page – including, but not limited to, a profile picture, a list of the SNS groups to which you belong, a list of any of your SNS friends or connections who are also Members of Agrowculture, connections you have established between your Account and any SNSs, and a biography and links to your Listings, if applicable (together, your "Profile Information"). We will display your Profile Information in your Agrowculture Account profile page publicly via the Site and Application, and, with your prior permission, on third party sites. Any information you choose to provide as part of your Profile Information will be publicly visible to all Agrowculture Users and consequently should reflect how much you want other Agrowculture Users to know about you. We recommend that you guard your anonymity and sensitive information and we encourage members to think carefully about what information about themselves they disclose in their profile pages. You can review and revise your Profile Information at any time.
If you post a Listing, we may publish that Listing publicly via the Site and Application and may enable third parties to publish your Listing on their websites through the use of an HTML "widget". We may also display the geographical location of your Listing in the form of a map so that potential Customers can see the general area and neighborhood of your Listing. If a Customer requests to make an order via the Site, Application and Service, Agrowculture will share the following information about them with the applicable Farmer: (i) your first and last name, (ii) a link to your Agrowculture Account profile page, (iii) the names of any members of an SNS with whom you are "friends" or associated on the SNS if such individuals are also "friends" or associated with the Farmer on such SNS. All of this information will enable the Farmer to decide whether to confirm or reject your order. When a Farmer confirms an order we will share pieces of the Farmer’s Identify Information, including, but not limited to, full name, phone number, and the Farmer’s email address, with the applicable Customer selected by the Farmer and we will share pieces of the Customer’s Identify Information with the Farmer, including, but not limited to, full name, phone number and email address, so that the Customer and Farmer may contact one another directly. In no event is a Customer's Billing Information shared with a Farmer.
Aggregate Information and Non-Identifying Information
We may share aggregated information that does not include Personal Information and we may otherwise disclose Non-Identifying Information and Log Data with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling and other purposes. Any aggregated information shared in these contexts will not contain your Personal Information.
Agrowculture may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets, including your Personal Information, in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets or in the event of bankruptcy. Changing or Deleting Your Information All Members may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information in their registration profile by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org or editing the relevant part of their profile. If you would like us to cancel your Agrowculture Account, please contact us or select the "Cancel Account" feature of the Service and we will attempt to accommodate your request if we do not have any legal obligation or a legitimate business reason to retain the information contained in your Agrowculture Account. Please note that, if you cancel your Agrowculture Account, any reviews you have posted via the Site and Application will remain publicly viewable via the Site and Application. Please see below for privacy contact information.
Agrowculture is very concerned with safeguarding your information. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Site and Application, you can contact us email@example.com. We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored "personal data" (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or conspicuous posting on the Site and Application in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, insofar as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
Links to Other Websites
Our Site and Application contain links to other websites. If you choose to visit an advertiser by "clicking on" a banner ad or other type of advertisement, or click on another third party link, you will be directed to that third party's website. The fact that we link to a website or present a banner ad or other type of advertisement is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other websites follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit.
