Terms & Conditions
TYPES OF USERS
You may simply browse the Site or App as a visitor or you may create an account (“Account”) to become a client (“Client”). You must be a Client to order Crates.
To become a Client, you must provide your name, email address, other registration information, and select a password (“Account Information”), which you should not share with any third parties. Alternatively, you can create an account and become a Client using your valid social networking service (“SNS”) account, by entering your SNS credentials and connecting to the Services. In becoming a Client, you represent and warrant that: (a) all required Account Information you submit is truthful and accurate, and (b) you will maintain the accuracy of such Account Information. Please also keep your Account Information confidential. If someone accesses our Services using your Account Information, we will rely on that Account Information and will assume that it is really you or someone you have authorized who is accessing the Services. You are solely responsible for any and all use of your Account Information and all activities (including orders placed through the Services) that occur under or in connection with your Account. We reserve the right to take whatever action we deem necessary to preserve the security of the Services and your Account, including without limitation terminating your Account, changing your password, or requesting additional information to authorize transactions on your Account. You agree to be responsible for any act or omission of any users that access the Services under your Account. You may not use anyone else’s Account at any time without the permission of the Account holder. Please notify us immediately if you become aware that your Account Information is being used without authorization. You agree not to register for more than one Account, register for an Account on behalf of an individual other than yourself without such individual’s authorization, or register for an Account on behalf of any group or entity. You must be at least 18 years old to be a Client. If we later discover or suspect that a person under 18 years old has requested a Crate, we reserve the right to take steps to cancel that request.
CRATE SHIPMENTS, RETURNS, AND EXCHANGES
Returns. Unfortunately, we cannot accept Returns for any Crate or Item.
Exchanges. We do not accept exchanges for any crates or specific items.
Legal Details. Your scheduling of a Crate is an offer to purchase the Products in the Crate. We may accept your offer by processing your payment and shipping you the Crate. For any reason, we may decline to accept your request for a Crate. If we decline to accept your request for a Crate, we may attempt to notify you at the email address you provided. All Products will be deemed accepted by you upon shipment, and title to and risk of loss passes to you when we provide the Products to a common carrier.
When we ship you a Crate, we will charge you a non-refundable “Fee” in the amount set forth on the Services. The Fee will be charged to your credit card or other payment method on the 1st of each month (Billing cycle). The Billing date may be changed at The Care Crate Co.’s discretion. By submitting your payment information to us, you authorize us to charge your credit card or other payment method then available in accordance with this policy. If you receive Crates automatically, you agree to be charged to the card on file on a recurring basis according to the frequency you selected until you cancel the automatic Crates by (i) clicking the “Manage subscription” link on your account homepage when you log in, choosing to stop receiving Crates, and following the prompts and options that follow or (ii) by emailing us at [email protected] stating that you want to stop receiving automatic Crates from the email address then currently associated with your account. You may cancel an upcoming Crate by accessing your account and cancelling the Crate at any time prior to the last day of the month in order to stop the following month’s crate from being shipped. You represent that you will not use any credit card or other form of payment unless you have all necessary authorization to do so. We will not be liable in the event your children or others acting with or without your permission use your credit card, PayPal account, or other means of payment to make orders on the Services; however, you may report any unauthorized use to us, and we will use reasonable measures within our control to help prevent future unauthorized use of your credit card or other payment method.
PRICING AND PRODUCTS
The Care Crate Co. does not disclose the prices of its Products until you receive a Crate. You are responsible for paying any state and local sales taxes that apply to your order where we elect or are required to collect and remit such taxes. If we don’t collect the applicable sales tax, you are responsible for payment of the applicable use taxes. The Care Crate Co. provides certain promotions or credits to customers. Depending on the type of promotion or credit offered, it may reduce the amount of state and local sales taxes that apply to your order. The application of the promotion or credit will be reflected on your receipt.
The Care Crate Co. provides crates that are considered peanut and tree nut free. However, customers, subscribers, and recipients of the Crates from CCC understand and agree that they are solely responsible for determining whether a product contained in a The Care Crate Co. box includes an ingredient in which they may be allergic, or whether an item was produced in a facility where there are other items that may have been in contact with an item in the CCC box. It is the responsibility of the subscriber, consumer and recipient to check and verify ingredients and the products manufacturing facility. Subscriber, consumer and recipient hold CCC harmless for any allergic reaction or any harm caused by an item that was included in a The Care Crate Co. box. We also suggest visiting the manufacturers website for further information on ingredients and manufacturing processes.

THIRD PARTY CONTENT AND OTHER WEBSITES
DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES
Some states do not allow exclusion of implied warranties, so these exclusions may not apply in individual cases. You may have additional rights that vary from state to state. To the extent that we may not, as a matter of applicable law, disclaim any implied warranty, the scope and duration of such warranty will be the maximum permitted under such applicable law.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
You acknowledge and agree that we are only willing to collect payment, facilitate the fulfillment of orders, and provide access to the Services if you agree to certain limitations of our liability to you and to third parties. You understand that to the extent permitted under applicable law, in no event will we or our officers, employees, directors, parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, or licensors be liable for any indirect, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of revenues, profits, goodwill, use, data, lost opportunities, or business interruptions or other intangible losses (even if such parties were advised of, knew of or should have known of the possibility of such damages, and notwithstanding the failure of essential purpose of any limited remedy), arising out of or related to your use of or access to, or the inability to use or to access, the Services, regardless of whether such damages are based on contract, tort (including negligence and strict liability), warranty, statute, or otherwise. We will not be liable for any damages arising from the products or for any information appearing on any other site linked to our Services. If you are dissatisfied with any portion of the Services, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue use of the Services. Our total liability to you for all claims arising from or related to the Services is limited, in aggregate, to the greater of (i) the total amount of your orders in the three (3) months prior to the date of the event giving rise to our liability, or (ii) fifty dollars (U.S. $50.00).
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some of the above limitations and disclaimers may not apply to you. To the extent that we may not, as a matter of applicable law, disclaim any implied warranty or limit liabilities, the scope and duration of such warranty and the extent of our liability will be the minimum permitted under such applicable law.
Without limiting the foregoing, under no circumstances will we or our licensors be held liable for any delay or failure in performance resulting directly or indirectly from acts of nature, forces, or causes beyond our reasonable control, including, without limitation, internet failures, computer equipment failures, telecommunication equipment failures, other equipment failures, electrical power failures, strikes, labor disputes, riots, insurrections, civil disturbances, shortages of labor or materials, fires, floods, storms, explosions, acts of god, war, governmental actions, orders of domestic or foreign courts or tribunals, or non-performance of third parties.
We respect the intellectual property of others, and we ask you to do the same. In connection with our Services, we have adopted and implemented a policy respecting copyright law that provides for the removal of any infringing materials and for the termination, in appropriate circumstances, of users of our Services who are repeat infringers of intellectual property rights, including copyrights. If you believe that one of our users is, through the use of our Services, unlawfully infringing the copyright(s) in a work, and wish to have the allegedly infringing material removed, the following information in the form of a written notification (pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)) must be provided to our designated Copyright Agent:
– An electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest;
– Identification of the copyrighted work(s) that you claim to have been infringed;
– Identification of the material on our Services that you claim is infringing and that you request us to remove;
– Sufficient information to permit us to locate such material;
– Your address, telephone number, and email address;
– A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
– A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.
Please note that, pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 512(f), any misrepresentation of material fact (falsities) in a written notification automatically subjects the complaining party to liability for any damages, costs and attorney’s fees incurred by us in connection with the written notification and allegation of copyright infringement.
ARBITRATION AGREEMENT; CLASS WAIVER; WAIVER OF TRIAL BY JURY.
Please read this Section (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully. It is part of your contract with us and affects your rights. It contains procedures for mandatory binding arbitration and a class action waiver.
Additional Rules for Non-Appearance Based Arbitration. If non-appearance based arbitration is elected, the arbitration will be conducted by telephone, online and/or based solely on written submissions; the specific manner will be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. The arbitration will not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise agreed by the parties.
Time Limits. If either party pursues arbitration, the arbitration action must be initiated and/or demanded within the statute of limitations (i.e., the legal deadline for filing a claim) and within any deadline imposed under the AAA Rules for the pertinent claim.
Waiver of Jury Trial. The parties hereby waive their constitutional and statutory rights to go to court and have a trial in front of a judge or a jury, instead electing that all claims and disputes will be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement. Arbitration procedures are typically subject only to very limited review by a court. In the event any litigation should arise between the parties in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, the parties waive all rights to a jury trial, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge.
Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. All claims and disputes within the scope of this arbitration agreement must be arbitrated or litigated on an individual basis and not on a class basis, and claims of more than one customer or user cannot be arbitrated or litigated jointly or consolidated with those of any other customer or user.
Confidentiality. All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, including but not limited to the award of the arbitrator and compliance therewith, will be strictly confidential. The parties agree to maintain confidentiality unless otherwise required by law. This paragraph will not prevent a party from submitting to a court of law any information necessary to enforce this Agreement, to enforce an arbitration award, or to seek injunctive or equitable relief.
Severability. If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then such specific part or parts will be of no force and effect and will be severed and the remainder of this Arbitration Agreement will continue in full force and effect.
Right to Waive. Any or all of the rights and limitations set forth in this Arbitration Agreement may be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted. Such waiver will not waive or affect any other portion of this Arbitration Agreement.
Survival. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with us.
Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claimscourt.
Emergency Equitable Relief. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek emergency equitable relief before a state or federal court in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration. A request for interim measures will not be deemed a waiver of any other rights or obligations under this Arbitration Agreement.
Claims Not Subject to Arbitration. Notwithstanding the foregoing, claims of defamation, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and infringement or misappropriation of the other party’s patent, copyright, trademark or trade secrets will not be subject to this Arbitration Agreement.
Courts. In any circumstances where the foregoing Arbitration Agreement permits the parties to litigate in court, the parties hereby agree to submit exclusively to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Columbus, OH for such purpose.
By agreeing to the terms and conditions, you verify you have already reached out to your recipient’s inmate facility to receive permission to send a care package, and or are aware the Care Crate Co. is not responsible for destroyed, discarded, or refused care packages once delivered to the inmate facility. Each inmate facility follows a different policy, and we do not have access to this information for safety and security purposes. The recipient is fully responsible for securing permission for care package delivery from the inmate facility. For any questions about your recipient’s inmate facility’s ability to receive outside care packages, please reach out directly to the facility. For packages that were refused AND returned to the sender:
– A 30% restocking may be charged for all returns.
– Sale items are FINAL SALE and cannot be returned.
– To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging and unopened.
– Perishable goods such as food, candy or anything with an expiration date may be exempt from being returned for safety.
– To complete your return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase and the tracking number of the returned parcel.
