- Your Account and Password.
You are solely responsible for safeguarding and maintaining the secrecy and confidentiality of your account and related information. Any use of a Subscriber account is the sole responsibility of the Subscriber, including those instances where a party other than the Subscriber uses that account. Subscribers should immediately notify MiniBento of any suspected or actual unauthorized use of a Subscriber account or any other breach or threatened breach of the Site’s security. You agree to pay all charges that accrue to your account through your use of the Site and the Services or such use by those authorized by you.

- Ordering Through the Site.
You acknowledge and agree that you are subscribing to a Food Plan for your child, consisting of predetermined Food items. We strive to suit the individual needs of your child; however, you acknowledge and agree that the Food menu cannot be modified to suit all the individual needs of your child. A current list of schools and camps participating in the MiniBento Program will be displayed as you proceed through the registration and ordering process. You can change or modify your order anytime 30 hours or more in advance of the lunch delivery, unless explicitly stated otherwise during the ordering process for a particular event.
From time to time certain Food items may be unavailable due to, among other things, conditions beyond MiniBento’s control. In such event, MiniBento reserves the right to provide an alternate Food item to fulfill your order.
- Food Quality and Source.
MiniBento contracts the preparation of the Food Items with licensed catering companies. While MiniBento requires the preparation of the Food Items to our specifications, the use of the highest quality products, and reviews the food preparation processes implemented by the caterer, MiniBento is not directly involved in the selection, handling, or processing of food products. To the best of MiniBento’s knowledge, the catering companies are adhering to the Washington State Department of Health standards and regulations. MiniBento is not responsible for any occurrences of food poisoning, presence of choking hazards, allergic reactions, or other food quality or content related problems. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about the catering company that prepared a particular Food Item.
- Delivery and Storage of Product.
To receive delivery of Food items under your Food Plan, your child's school or camp must have agreed to participate in the MiniBento Program. Our delivery personnel will deliver Food items to a designated place at your child’s school or camp, and the school or camp will allow your child to pick up the Food items having his/her name on it.
MiniBento uses coolers in an effort to maintain the quality and integrity of Food items during delivery. MiniBento is not and shall not be responsible in any way for ensuring that your child’s school or camp maintains the integrity, quality or other aspect of such Food items after delivery by MiniBento.
FOLLOWING DELIVERY BY MINIBENTO, THE HANDLING, SERVING, AND ANY AND ALL OTHER ACTIVITIES REASONABLY RELATED TO PROVIDING YOUR CHILD’S FOOD ITEMS TO YOUR CHILD, ARE THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF YOUR CHILD'S SCHOOL OR CAMP, AND MINIBENTO DOES NOT AND SHALL NOT BEAR ANY RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY FOR ANY NEGLIGENCE, MISHANDLING, MISUSE OF YOUR CHILD’S FOOD ITEMS, OR OTHER ACTION OR INACTION BY YOUR CHILD'S SCHOOL'S OR CAMP’S OR SUCH OTHER SCHOOL’S OR CAMP’S PERSONNEL OR ANY OTHER THIRD PARTY IN CONNECTION THEREWITH.
In the case unforeseen delivery impediments such as adverse weather conditions, MiniBento may adjust its delivery schedule, which may impact its ability to deliver your child's lunch. In the event that such delivery schedule adjustments will result in significant or material delay, a MiniBento customer service representative will, to the extent reasonably practicable, notify you by email prior to delivering Food items pursuant to the adjusted schedule. MiniBento will use reasonable efforts to resume scheduled delivery as soon as conditions permit.
- Payment; Refunds.
- Direct Subscriber Payments.
MiniBento accepts all payments through Amazon Payments. We do not accept any other payment method not listed above. MiniBento is not in control of and not responsible for policies of Amazon Payments. MiniBento and you agree to follow Amazon Payments policies in all aspects of payment processing, including but not limited to possible payment dispute resolution.
- MiniBento Account.
MiniBento maintains an account balance on behalf of the Subscriber. Direct Subscriber Payments are used to increase the account balance. Orders placed by the Subscriber reduce the account balance. Orders can only be placed by the Subscriber if the account balance is sufficient.
- Third Party Payments.
If you are making payment for your Food Plan through your child’s school, or camp, or PTA, PTO or other third party organization (“Organization”), you are agreeing to pay that Organization the amount it has specified to you. If you fail to pay any fees or charges when due, and MiniBento is so notified by the Organization that you have not paid the required fees or charges, then MiniBento may, in its sole discretion, suspend or terminate your Service and/or your access to the Site. You agree that you shall bear sole liability for any fees, including attorneys' fees and collection costs, that your school, camp, or Organization may incur in its efforts to collect any unpaid balances from you. MiniBento shall have no liability to third parties for any unpaid Subscriber charges owed to any Organization.
- School, Camp and/or Organization Payments.
Schools, camps and/or Organizations should contact MiniBento at email@example.com or 425-868-9229 to arrange payment for the Service.
For Direct Subscriber Payees, full refunds will be issued for cancellations that occur at least 30 hours prior to the date of delivery, unless a different cancellation policy has been specified for a particular event. Refunds will be credited back to the MiniBento account of the Subscriber. For Third Party Payees, refunds are subject to the policies of the school, camp, PTA, PTO or other third party organization through which you are paying.
- Refund Exclusions.
Refunds will not be issued for cancellations in case of unforeseen changes in schedule that affect the entire school, camp, or event your child is attending. These include school cancellation due to adverse weather conditions, unforeseen changes in school schedule or delivery site, and other such events.
- Account closure.
In case the Subscriber account is closed, all ordered but not delivered lunches will be cancelled following the MiniBento cancellation policy, and appropriate refund will be credited to the account. The total account balance will then be refunded to the Subscriber in the form of a check, unless a different refund method is agreed by the Subscriber and MiniBento. To close an account, the Subscriber should contact MiniBento by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 425-868-9229.

ANY SUCH CHANGES WILL BECOME EFFECTIVE AFTER AN ONLINE POSTING ON THE SITE. NO SUCH CHANGES WILL AFFECT ORDERS ALREADY PLACED. MINIBENTO MAY, AT ITS OPTION, PROVIDE NOTICE OF SUCH CHANGES VIA EMAIL.
YOUR CONTINUED USE OF THE SERVICE FOLLOWING THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF A CHANGE TO SUCH FEES AND BILLING METHODS SHALL CONSTITUTE YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF SUCH CHANGE.
