1. Effect of GrubUp Terms of Service
a. GrubUP is an online marketplace that permits Customers to view and search for the menus of Independent Service Providers (Partners) and/or place orders for food or other products from Partners which Partners receive through the Partner Platform.
b. Subsequently, GrubUP software then notifies other Independent Service Providers (Captains) which are (independent contractors/ riders) that a delivery opportunity is available.
c. After a Captain communicates their acceptance of the delivery, the GrubUP software facilitates the Captain's completion of the delivery of the Partner Products to the Customer.
d. You acknowledge and agree that GrubUP is not a merchant, food preparation business, reseller, or delivery service; it is an online marketing and connection platform.
e. These Terms of Service govern GrubUp’s provision or facilitation to you of the Services, services provided by Independent Service Providers, the App, GrubUp website, content and associated materials.
f. You access, continued use of the Services, or acceptance by clicking the ‘I Accept’ tick box on the App or our website constitutes your agreement and consent to be bound by these Terms of Service, which established a contractual relationship between you and GrubUp.
