Primitive Nutrition reserves the right to substitute an unavailable product with a similar product. When making substitutions, Primitive Nutrition will attempt to meet the requirements of your particular Primitive Nutrition meal plan. Substituted food items may contain different ingredients and allergens than those in items originally ordered. If you have any food allergies or if you are otherwise concerned about any particular ingredients, please be sure to carefully check all individual product packages for the most updated information regarding ingredients and nutritional content prior to consumption of any of Primitive Nutrition food products.
CROSS CONTAMINATION RISK
Please Note: Primitive Nutrition’s food items may contain or may have been manufactured in a facility that also processes dairy, eggs, fish, shellfish, soy or tree nuts.
We have made every effort to accurately display the Products featured on the Website. However, the colors we use and the capabilities of your computer monitor may affect the colors visible on your screen. As such, we cannot guarantee that your monitor’s display will be accurate.
CREDIT CARD SECURITY
PLEASE NOTE THAT NORMAL E-MAIL (SUCH AS USING “CONTACT US” OR YOUR HOME E-MAIL) IS NOT ENCRYPTED AND THUS IS NOT A SECURE MEANS FOR TRANSMITTING CREDIT CARD INFORMATION OR ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION YOU WISH TO KEEP PRIVATE AND SECURE.
Primitive Nutrition currently accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express for all orders. Payment for Products ordered will be processed at the time of placing such order. You agree to pay promptly all charges to your account (which includes items purchased and applicable taxes) for any order placed by you or anyone who you allow to use your customer identification number or password, including members of your family, friends or any other person. For your order to be accepted, your method of payment shall be validated and must have enough available funds required for the transaction. Upon approval, the order will be accepted for shipping and delivery. Primitive Nutrition reserves the right to establish a spending limit for your account. Your right to order Products is also subject to limits established by your payment card issuer.
If you are dissatisfied with a meal, meal ingredient or a meal's appearance on arrival, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and our customer service agents will research the incident, and at their discretion, may offer credit in the form of Primitive Nutrition Bucks to the customer account. We may require photographic documentation of any meal with which you are dissatisfied before we issue a credit. Meals that did not meet your taste expectations are covered by a money-back guarantee of up to 100%.
Guarantee applies to your first order only. Refund requests in accordance with this guarantee must be made by phone or email within 7 days of delivery. Meals that arrive unfit can be credited to the account for use in a future order. We value photos of any improper food arrival to continue improving our packaging. A customer service agent may request photographs be sent to accompany the reported complaint. We encourage all customers to remove meals immediately from their box and place in the refrigerator, inspecting containers as they are transferred. Meals delayed by our third-party courier must be communicated with our team in urgency so we may try to resolve this issue. Credit on orders that did not arrive due to courier or Primitive Nutrition fault will be given in the form of Primitive Nutrition Bucks to the customer account. Primitive Nutrition is not liable for packages undelivered due to incorrect addresses submitted by the customer. Orders may be modified at any time until the weekly cutoff of Wednesday at 11:59 pm CST via our website or by contacting us at email@example.com. We are unable to modify or cancel orders once the cutoff has passed as ingredients have been ordered.
We use reliable third-party delivery companies to deliver your meals, that will generally deliver your meals prior to 9 pm CST on your delivery date. Each box is carefully packaged to stay fresh until at least 10 pm CST on the day of delivery. However, to maintain the highest quality and integrity of the meals after delivery, we recommend that you immediately refrigerate the items when you receive them. Furthermore, you should inspect your package to ensure the contents arrive in a cool, refrigerated condition. The best way to do this is to check the meat and fish with a thermometer to ensure their internal temperatures are 41F or below. If a fresh food product arrives at above 41F, you should contact our customer service and discard the item.
If you are not home when a delivery arrives, our delivery person will leave the package for you at your door. Again, since our food is packaged with insulated liners and gel packs, it will remain cold and fresh until at least 10 pm CST.
For your convenience, Primitive Nutrition offers subscription services whereby you select a set of meals and a delivery date of your choosing and Primitive Nutrition sends those meals to the location you have selected on a weekly basis.
For subscription customers Primitive Nutrition will bill the credit card on file on Thursday prior to delivery date. By subscribing to our service you are agreeing to pay recurring periodic subscriptions for an indefinite period of time until cancelled by you or us. You will not receive any advance notice of this payment but you will receive post-payment confirmation by email. It is your responsibility to maintain current, valid payment information with Primitive Nutrition. If your automatic recurring payment is declined, you will be contacted by phone or email. If we cannot contact you we cannot guarantee that your meals will be shipped.
Subscription customers have the ability to select, change, pause, or cancel a meal delivery any time prior to the weekly cut-off time on Wednesdays at 11:59pm Central. Orders cannot be modified or cancelled after the cut-off time. Unless notified by the subscriber prior to the cut-off, Primitive Nutrition will prepare and ship the meals selected in accordance with subscription terms and bill the credit card on file in accordance with our normal billing procedures. Order cancellations must be submitted prior to the cut-off time to take effect for the next week’s delivery.
WHEN YOU REGISTER FOR A SUBSCRIPTION (AND EACH TIME YOU CHANGE YOUR PLAN), YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT Primitive Nutrition (OR OUR THIRD-PARTY PAYMENT PROCESSOR) IS AUTHORIZED TO CHARGE YOU ON A WEEKLY BASIS FOR YOUR SUBSCRIPTION (IN ADDITION TO ANY APPLICABLE TAXES AND OTHER CHARGES) FOR AN INDEFINITE PERIOD OF TIME UNTIL CANCELLED BY YOU OR US. THE AMOUNT YOU ARE CHARGED AND THE NUMBER OF MEALS YOU RECEIVE EACH WEEK MAY VARY DEPENDING ON THE PREFERENCES YOU SELECT. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT Primitive Nutrition WILL NOT OBTAIN ANY ADDITIONAL AUTHORIZATION FROM YOU FOR SUCH AUTOMATIC, RECURRING PAYMENTS.
SUBSCRIPTION CANCELLATION POLICY
YOU CAN TURN OFF YOUR SUBSCRIPTION AT ANY TIME; HOWEVER, IF YOU TURN OFF THE SUBSCRIPTION AFTER THE CUT-OFF TIME HAS PASSED AND AN ORDER HAS BEEN PLACED, YOUR ORDER CANNOT BE CANCELLED OR CHANGED. YOU MUST TURN OFF YOUR SUBSCRIPTION PRIOR TO THE CUT-OFF TIME TO TAKE EFFECT FOR THE NEXT WEEK’S DELIVERY. YOU MAY RE-SUBSCRIBE AT ANY TIME PROVIDED THAT Primitive Nutrition RESERVES THE RIGHT TO NOT PERMIT RE-SUBSCRIPTION WHERE Primitive Nutrition HAS PREVIOUSLY ELECTED TO TERMINATE A SUBSCRIPTION BY YOU.

RESOLVING DISPUTES — ARBITRATION
Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by calling our customer service department at 1-888-573-5727. If Primitive Nutrition’s customer service department is unable to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction (or if Primitive Nutrition has not been able to resolve a dispute between us after attempting to do so informally), we each agree to resolve any disputes through binding arbitration or in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction instead of in courts of general jurisdiction.
All disputes or claims that arise under or related to these Terms and Conditions (whether in contract, tort or otherwise, whether past, pre-existing, or future, and including statutory, consumer protection, common law, intentional tort, injunctive, and equitable claims) will be resolved either in small claims court of competent jurisdiction or by individual arbitration in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"). Unless you and Primitive Nutrition agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of your billing address. The AAA Rules are available online at adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.
You agree to arbitration on an individual basis. In any dispute, NEITHER CUSTOMER NOR Primitive Nutrition SHALL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS BY OR AGAINST OTHER CUSTOMERS, OR ARBITRATE OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLAIMS AS A REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS MEMBER, OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced (but in no case shall there be a class arbitration).
The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity. Any award of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on each of the parties, and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. This transaction and the arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act 9 U.S.C. sec. 1-16 (FAA).
TELEPHONE CALLS AND SMS TEXT MESSAGES
Upon signing up for the program, you will be asked to provide us with a telephone number at which we can reach you. That number enables Primitive Nutrition to reach you with informational calls related to your transactions, including shipping updates. All calls to and from Primitive Nutrition may be monitored or recorded for quality and training purposes.
