7. Gebni is a Marketplace; Limitation of Liability
Gebni acts as a marketplace to connect restaurants to consumers (each, a “User” and collectively, the “Users”). It is up to you whether you want to connect with a certain User, and you alone bear the risk of any communication, meeting, or other connection with a User. You acknowledge and agree that Gebni is not a party to any communication, meeting or agreement between you and another User, and that we are not liable to you for any loss incurred as the result of a User’s acts or omissions, including without limitation fraud, failure to communicate, conversion, physical injury, mental distress, breach of contract, negligence, and intellectual property violations.
You acknowledge and agree that Gebni is not responsible for, and has no control over, the preparation or delivery of your food. Gebni simply transmits your order to the restaurant of your choice and lets them take it from there. Gebni disclaims liability, to the fullest extent permitted by law, for your order or any aspect thereof, including without limitation the content of your food, the manner and timing of its delivery, and any mistakes made by the restaurant. Additionally, Gebni disclaims liability for consumers who use the Service.
You acknowledge and agree that Gebni does not necessarily have control over the quality, safety, morality or legality of any User or any service(s) they offer you, the truth or accuracy of any User statements, or the ability of Users to fulfill their obligations under an agreement with you. Gebni cannot ensure that a User will actually complete a transaction or follow through on their promises.
Gebni cannot guarantee the true identity, age, and nationality of a User. Gebni encourages you to communicate directly with Users through the tools available on the application.

Gebni reserves the right to remove Your Content, suspend or terminate your access to the Platform and/or pursue all legal remedies if we believe that any of Your Content breaches any of the foregoing representations or warranties, or otherwise infringes another person's rights or violates any law, rule or regulation.
9. Term; Refunds. This Agreement will remain in full force and effect while you use the Websites and/or Service. You may terminate your membership and/or subscription at any time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you resign or cancel your membership and/or subscription to Gebni, to help Gebni analyze and improve the Service, you may be asked to provide a reason for your resignation/cancellation. Gebni may terminate your membership and/or subscription for any reason by sending notice to you at the email address you provide in your application for membership, or such other email address as you may later provide to Gebni. If Gebni terminates your membership in the Service because you have breached this Agreement, you will not be entitled to any refund of unused subscription fees. All decisions regarding the termination of accounts shall be made in the sole discretion of Gebni. Gebni is not required to provide you notice prior to terminating your membership and/or subscription. Gebni is not required, and may be prohibited, from disclosing a reason for the termination of your account. Even after your membership or subscription is terminated, this Agreement will remain in effect. All terms that by their nature may survive termination of this Agreement shall be deemed to survive such termination.
By using the Service, you acknowledge and agree that Gebni is unable to provide a refund of any fees paid without the permission and consent of the partner restaurant. In the event that your order was not delivered, incorrect, or otherwise faulty, Gebni will make its best efforts to work with the restaurant to rectify the situation; however, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to issue you a refund.
10. Membership; Pricing; Pre-Orders.
a. You may become a free Member of the Service at no cost. As a free Member, you will have the ability to participate in some, but not all, of the features and services available within the Service and/or have the ability to participate in such features and services for a limited period of time. In order to access additional features and services and/or to enjoy continuous use of additional features and services, you must become a paying subscriber to the Service. Please note that the billing policies that are disclosed to you in subscribing to the service are deemed part of this Agreement. Notwithstanding anything herein, you are solely responsible for all taxes associated with your use of the Software and/or Service.

Any Pre-Orders may be modified up to, but not later than, 48 hours prior to the first date of the scheduled delivery. If you cancel a Pre-Order, you will receive a credit from Gebni that may be used toward a future purchase on the Platform (the “Credit”). If you cancel a Pre-Order less than 48 hours but more than 24 hours before the scheduled delivery, you will only receive a credit of fifty percent (50%) of the total cost of the Pre-Order.
11. Charges on Your Billing Account.
a. General. Gebni bills you through an online account (your "Billing Account") for such charges. You agree to pay all charges at the prices then in effect for any use of the Service by you or other persons (including your agents) using your Billing Account, and you authorize Gebni to charge your chosen payment provider (your "Payment Method") for the Service. You agree to make payment using that selected Payment Method. Gebni reserves the right to correct any errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment. Gebni reserves the right to set, and change, prices at its sole discretion. Furthermore, you acknowledge and agree that prices may change frequently based on a number of factors, including without limitation demand.
b. Recurring Billing. Our subscription plans to the Service consist of an initial period, for which there is a one-time charge, followed by recurring period charges as agreed to by you. By entering into this Agreement, you acknowledge that your subscription has an initial and recurring payment feature and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation. Gebni may submit periodic charges (e.g. monthly) without further authorization from you, until you provide prior notice (confirmed in writing by Gebni) that you have terminated this authorization or wish to change your payment method. Such notice will not affect charges submitted before Gebni could reasonably act. You may cancel your paid membership or change your payment information in your account settings. For your convenience, we take your payment information so that your Gebni membership will not be interrupted. We auto-renew your membership at the level you selected. Your Gebni subscription will be automatically extended for successive renewal periods of the same duration as the subscription term originally selected, at the then-current non-promotional subscription rate (if applicable). To cancel, simply log into your account and follow the instructions for cancellation; alternatively, you may send us an email at email@example.com. Please note that you will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period. If you add additional users to your account, such users will be billed in the next billing cycle for the month in which they were added and for the subsequent month. You agree to pay for each user on your account at any time during the monthly billing cycle, without proration.
c. Current Information Required. YOU MUST PROVIDE CURRENT, COMPLETE AND ACCURATE INFORMATION FOR YOUR BILLING ACCOUNT. YOU MUST PROMPTLY UPDATE ALL INFORMATION TO KEEP YOUR BILLING ACCOUNT CURRENT, COMPLETE AND ACCURATE (SUCH AS A CHANGE IN BILLING ADDRESS, CREDIT CARD NUMBER, OR CREDIT CARD EXPIRATION DATE), AND YOU MUST PROMPTLY NOTIFY GEBNI IF YOUR PAYMENT METHOD IS CANCELED (E.G., FOR LOSS OR THEFT) OR IF YOU BECOME AWARE OF A POTENTIAL BREACH OF SECURITY, SUCH AS THE UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OR USE OF YOUR USER NAME OR PASSWORD. CHANGES TO SUCH INFORMATION CAN BE MADE AT ACCOUNT SETTINGS. IF YOU FAIL TO PROVIDE GEBNI ANY OF THE FOREGOING INFORMATION, YOU AGREE THAT GEBNI MAY CONTINUE CHARGING YOU FOR ANY USE OF THE SERVICE UNDER YOUR BILLING ACCOUNT UNLESS YOU HAVE TERMINATED YOUR SUBSCRIPTION FOR THE SERVICE (CONFIRMED BY YOU IN WRITING UPON REQUEST BY GEBNI).
d. Payment Method. The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen payment method.
e. Reaffirmation of Authorization. Your non-termination or continued use of the Service reaffirms that Gebni is authorized to charge your Payment Method. Gebni may submit those charges for payment and you will be responsible for such charges. This does not waive Gebni’s right to seek payment directly from you. Your charges may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise described when you initially subscribed to the Service.
12. Modifications to Service. Gebni reserves the right at any time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice. You agree that Gebni shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.
