Terms of Use

LAST UPDATED: APRIL 8, 2024

These Terms of Service (“Terms”) apply to your access to and use of the websites, applications and other online products and services (collectively, our “Services”) provided by Pupatella Pizza, LLC or its affiliates (collectively, “Pupatella,” “our,” “us” or “we”). By accessing or using our Services, you agree to these Terms, INCLUDING SECTION 18 BELOW, WHICH AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE BETWEEN US. If you do not agree to these Terms, including the mandatory arbitration provision and class action waiver in Section 18, do not access or use our Services.

We may make changes to these Terms from time to time. Depending on the nature of the change, we will provide notice of such changes, such as by sending an email notification, providing notice through our Services, or posting the amended Terms to our Services and update the “Last Updated” date above. Unless we say otherwise in our notice, the amended Terms will be effective immediately and your continued access to and use of our Services after we provide notice will confirm your acceptance of the changes. If you do not agree to the amended Terms, you must stop accessing and using our Services.

1. Eligibility. You must be at least 13 years of age to access or use our Services. In addition, if you are between the ages of 13 and 18 (or between 13 and the age of legal majority under applicable law), you may only access or use our Services under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian who agrees to be bound by these Terms. If you are a parent or legal guardian of a user under the age of 18 (or the age of legal majority), you agree to be fully responsible for the acts or omissions of such user in connection with our Services. If you are accessing or using our Services on behalf of another person or entity, you represent that you are authorized to accept these Terms on that person or entity’s behalf and that the person or entity agrees to be responsible to us if you or the other person or entity violates these Terms.

 

2. User Accounts and Account Security. You may need to register for an account to access some or all of our Services. If you register for an account, you must provide accurate account information and promptly update this information if it changes. You also must maintain the security of your account and promptly notify us if you discover or suspect that someone has accessed your account without your permission. If you permit others to use your account credentials, you are responsible for the activities of such users that occur in connection with your account. Without notice to you, Pupatella reserves the right to suspend or terminate your account if Pupatella determines in its sole discretion that you have violated these Terms, and Pupatella may, in its sole discretion, suspend, cancel or combine accounts that appear to be duplicative. We will use the  information you provide in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

3. Terms of Sale

  1. Payment and Billing. By providing a credit card, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use such credit card and that you authorize us (or our third-party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the total amount of your purchase (including any applicable taxes and other charges) (collectively, as applicable, an “order”). If the payment method cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, your order may be suspended or cancelled. You must resolve any problem we encounter in order to proceed with your order. In the event you want to change or update payment information associated with your Pupatella account, you can do so at any time by logging into your account.

  2. Pricing and Availability. All prices are shown in U.S. dollars and do not include applicable Taxes (as defined below) and other charges, unless we clearly state in writing that a price includes applicable Taxes. All products and services offered for sale are subject to availability and we reserve the right to impose quantity limits on any order, reject all or any part of an order and discontinue our Services without prior notice. Prices for products and services are subject to change at any time, but changes will not affect any order you have already placed.

  3. Order Cancellations; Refunds. Due to the typical short timeframe between order placement and fulfillment, it is difficult to make changes once your order has been placed. Once you click ‘Place Order,’ your order begins processing and cannot be changed or cancelled except by promptly calling the Pupatella pickup location designated in your order at least one hour prior to the designated pick up time. You are responsible for payment for all orders placed by you and not timely cancelled, regardless of whether you actually pick up the order. Once an order has been fulfilled, the order will be deemed completed and we will no longer be able to cancel the order or offer a refund. We reserve the right to cancel an order at our discretion in the event we are unable to fulfill an order (for example, in the event of a power outage at a particular store location), in which event we will notify you of the order cancellation. If you cancel an order in a timely manner, or if your order is cancelled by us, your payment type (e.g., credit card) will either not be charged or, if already submitted for payment processing, a refund will be issued to the original payment type via our payment processor (refunds may take several business days to appear in your account).

  4. Taxes. You are responsible for any sales, use, value-added or other governmental taxes, fees or duties (“Taxes“) due with respect to your purchase and use of goods or services. We will collect applicable Taxes if we determine we have a duty to collect Taxes. We will present an estimate of Taxes to be collected at checkout, except where we have clearly stated in writing that a price includes Taxes. The actual Taxes charged and collected may differ from the amount shown at checkout. You acknowledge that the amount billed may vary due to promotional offers or changes in applicable taxes or other charges, and you authorize us (or our third-party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the corresponding amount.

  5. Errors. We attempt to be as accurate as possible and to eliminate errors on our Services; however, we do not represent or warrant that the descriptions, pricing, or other information is accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. In the event of an error, we reserve the right to correct such error and revise your order accordingly (which includes charging the correct price) or to cancel the order and refund any amount charged.

5. Privacy. Please refer to our Privacy Policy for information about how we collect, use and disclose information about you.

12. SMS/Text Messages

  • You may have the ability to receive text messages to your mobile device from us via short message service technology (SMS). By providing your phone number to us, in addition to the particular purpose for which you provide your number at that time, you (i) consent to receive SMS messages from us via use of an autodialer, if and when one is used to transmit such messages, and (ii) understand that your consent is not a condition of any purchase. While Pupatella does not charge for SMS messages, your wireless carrier might and its standard messaging rates apply to your sending and receiving SMS messages, including our order/entry confirmation and subsequent SMS correspondence. Similarly, Pupatella does not charge for any content. However, downloadable content may incur additional charges from your cell phone provider. Please refer to your wireless subscriber agreement or contact your wireless carrier for information about your messaging plan. Your carrier may impose message or charge limitations on your account that are outside our control. All charges are billed by and payable to your wireless carrier.

  • By providing your mobile telephone number, you represent that you are the owner or authorized user of that number and the wireless device to which it is associated, and that you are authorized to approve the applicable charges.

  • We will not be liable for any delays or failures in your receipt of any SMS messages as delivery is subject to effective transmission from and through your and other network operators and processing by your mobile device. SMS message services are provided on an “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” basis.

  • Your receiving/sending SMS messages from/to us may result in our collecting certain information about you and your mobile device, including your cell phone number, your carrier’s name, and the date, time and content of your messages and other information that you may provide. We may use this information to respond to the purpose for which you provided your telephone number and for other lawful and permitted purposes as described in our Privacy Policy. Your wireless carrier and other service providers may also collect data about your mobile device and SMS usage, and their practices are governed by their own terms and policies. We will only use information you provide to perform or respond to the particular purpose for which you provided your telephone number and other purposes as described in this document.

13. Copyright Complaints. We have a policy of limiting access to our Services and terminating the accounts of users who infringe the intellectual property rights of others.

Designated Agent: Legal Department

14. Indemnification. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Pupatella and our officers, directors, employees, agents, partners, affiliates, subsidiaries, and authorized operators (individually and collectively, the “Pupatella Parties”) from and against any loss, liability, claim, demand, damages, expenses or costs (“Claims“) arising out of or related to (a) your access to or use of our Services; (b) your Feedback; (c) your violation of these Terms; (d) your violation, misappropriation or infringement of any rights of another (including intellectual property rights or privacy rights); and (e) your conduct in connection with our Services.

You also agree that the Pupatella Parties will have control of the defense or settlement of any third-party Claims. This indemnity is in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other indemnities set forth in a written agreement between you and Pupatella or the other Pupatella Parties.

15. Disclaimers. We do not control, endorse or take responsibility for any User Content or Third-Party Content available on or linked to by our Services.

Your use of our Services is at your sole risk. Our Services are provided “as is” and “as available” without warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement. In addition, Pupatella does not represent or warrant that our Services are accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. While Pupatella attempts to make your access to and use of our Services safe, we cannot and do not represent or warrant that our Services or servers are free of viruses or other harmful components. You assume the entire risk as to the quality and performance of the Services.

 

16. Limitation of Liability. Pupatella and the other Pupatella Parties will not be liable to you under any theory of liability—whether based in contract, tort, negligence, warranty, or otherwise—for any indirect, consequential, incidental or special damages or lost profits, even if Pupatella or the other Pupatella Parties have been advised of the possibility of such damages.

The total liability of Pupatella and the other Pupatella Parties, for any claim arising out of or relating to these Terms or our Services, regardless of the form of the action, is limited to the amount paid, if any, by you to access or use our Services or $25.

The limitations set forth in this section will not limit or exclude liability for the gross negligence, fraud or intentional misconduct of Pupatella or the other Pupatella Parties or for any other matters in which liability cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law.

17. Release. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to release and hold Pupatella and the other Pupatella Parties harmless from responsibility, liability, claims, demands, and/or damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown (including, but not limited to, claims of negligence), arising out of or related to disputes between users and the acts or omissions of third parties. You expressly waive any rights you may have under California Civil Code § 1542 as well as any other statute or common law principles that would otherwise limit the coverage of this release to include only those claims which you may know or suspect to exist in your favor at the time of agreeing to this release.

18. DISPUTE RESOLUTION; BINDING ARBITRATION. PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH PUPATELLA AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.

Except for small claims disputes in which you or Pupatella seek to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address or disputes in which you or Pupatella seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you and Pupatella waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services resolved in court. Instead, all disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms or our Services will be resolved through confidential binding arbitration held in Arlington, Virginia or by telephonic conference in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“Rules“) of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS“), which are available on the JAMS website and hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the rules of JAMS or waive your opportunity to read the rules of JAMS and any claim that the rules of JAMS are unfair or should not apply for any reason.

You and Pupatella agree that any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services is personal to you and Pupatella and that any dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding.

You and Pupatella agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 17 will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (the “FAA“), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual. You and Pupatella agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee and Pupatella will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by Pupatella, Pupatella will pay all JAMS fees and costs. You and Pupatella agree that the state or federal courts of the State of Virginia and the United States sitting in Arlington, Virginia have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.

Any claim arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, the claim is permanently barred, which means that you and Pupatella will not have the right to assert the claim. 

You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 18 by providing written notice to:

 

Pupatella, LLC
Attn: Legal Department
2700 S. Quincy Street, Suite 210
Arlington, VA 22206

In order to be effective, the opt out notice must include your full name and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve Disputes in accordance with Section 19.

19. Governing Law and Venue. These Terms and your access to and use of our Services will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of Washington, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of Washington or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court will be resolved in the state or federal courts of Virginia and the United States, respectively, sitting in Arlington, Virginia. 

20. Termination. We reserve the right, without notice and in our sole discretion, to terminate your right to access or use our Services. We are not responsible for any loss or harm related to your inability to access or use our Services.

21. Severability. If any provision or part of a provision of these Terms is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from these Terms and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

22. Survival. The following sections will survive the expiration or termination of these Terms and the termination of your MOD account: all defined terms and Sections 1-7, 8 (1st paragraph), 9 (2nd paragraph), 10-23.

23. Miscellaneous. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Pupatella relating to your access to and use of our Services. The failure of Pupatella to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Except as otherwise provided herein, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of the parties and are not intended to confer third party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity.
