TASTEPORT TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE

Tasteport is an online grocery ordering service made available to you by BagIt  Solutions Inc. (“Tasteport,” “we,” or “us”), via the Tasteport mobile app  (the “App”), and the Tasteport website (the “Site,” collectively, with the App, the “Service”).Please read these terms and conditions of use as set out below (the “Terms”) carefully before using Service. These Terms govern your access to and use of this Service, including the messages, information, data, text, software, images and other content that make up this site (the “Content,” which content is part of this Service).  These Terms exempt us and others from liability and/or limit our and their liability and contain other important provisions that apply to your use of this site.

  1. General 

Our objective is to make your grocery purchasing experience easy and efficient. However, Tasteport does not own the products or goods you purchase through the Service (“Groceries”). We offer a platform that presents you with a set of one or more retailer virtual storefronts from which you can select Groceries for picking, packing, and delivery from our retailers (as defined below) to your location or, if available, for you to pick up in-store. This means we do not determine certain details such as the quality, timing, legality, or the availability of Groceries. When you make a purchase through the Service you are purchasing from retailers and our third party payment processor will be handling the transaction and collecting the payment for your purchase.

Picking, packing, or delivery services may be performed by independent third party providers including a retailer, third party logistics provider or personal shopper (“Third Party Providers”). You acknowledge that transportation or logistics services are provided by such Third Party Providers who are independent contractors who are not employed by Tasteport.

When you use the Services to place an order for Groceries, you authorize the purchase and delivery of those Groceries from the retailers you select. Unless otherwise specified, you acknowledge and agree that Tasteport and any Third Party Providers are acting as your agents in the picking, packing, and/or delivery of Groceries purchased by you and are not the sellers of the Groceries to you. You agree that your purchase is being made from the retailer you have selected, that retailer is the merchant of record, and that title to any Groceries passes to you when they are purchased at the applicable retailer’s store. You also acknowledge and agree that, except as expressly provided for otherwise in these Terms or a separate agreement between you and Tasteport, Tasteport does not form any employment or agency relationship with you and does not hold title to any Groceries that you order through the Services.

Occasionally there may be information on the Services that contains typographical errors, inaccuracies, or omissions that may relate to pricing, product descriptions, promotions offers, and availability. Tasteport reserves the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions and to change or update information or refuse or cancel orders if any information on the Services is inaccurate at any time without prior notice (including after you have submitted your order and/or your credit card has been charged).
