SHIPPING AND HANDLING; RISK OF LOSS
You agree to pay any shipping and handling charges shown at the time you make a purchase. We reserve the right to increase, decrease, add or eliminate shipping and handling charges from time to time, but we will provide notice of the charges applicable to you before you make your purchase.

DELIVERIES AND STORAGE
You are responsible for inspecting Products for any issues upon delivery. In addition, you are solely responsible for proper storage and handling of the Products you receive. The Products may be delivered in a frozen or thawed state. Each package will have a sticker with a “best by date.”
If you ordered a perishable Product for delivery, and you are not home when the delivery arrives, the courier will generally leave the package for you at your door, unless other delivery instructions have been communicated by or to you. Our perishable Products will be packaged in insulated liners and with dry ice or (or another similar frozen pack) to remain cold and fresh potentially for several hours after delivery; however, depending on the season and temperature in your geographic area at time of delivery, advanced planning by you should be made for immediate and proper storage of your perishable Products, as there is no guarantee how long packages will remain cold under any given condition.
In the case of inclement weather or other events beyond our control that interfere with our ability to deliver your purchased order, we will attempt to deliver your order as soon as reasonably possible. In some cases, delivery may occur prior to the scheduled delivery date. If timely delivery of your Products to ensure freshness is not feasible, we may cancel your order and issue you a credit or refund of the purchase price for that order.

WAIVER OF CLASS ACTION
YOU AND IMPOSSIBLE FOODS AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
This Agreement will be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of California as such laws are applied to agreements between California residents entered into and to be performed entirely within California, without giving effect to conflict of laws principles. The sole venue to bring any action under this Agreement shall be the state and federal courts of California, USA. The parties submit to the jurisdiction of such courts.
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials posted on the Site infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send Impossible Foods a “Notification of Claimed Infringement” requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information:
1. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the works that have been allegedly infringed;
2. Identification of the copyrighted work alleged to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the Site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works);
3. Identification of the specific material or link alleged to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow Impossible Foods to locate the material on the Site;
4. Your name, address, telephone number, and email address (if available);
5. A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
6. A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send Impossible Foods a counter-notice.
Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see https://www.copyright.gov/ for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Site should be sent to [email protected] with a copy to [email protected] Consult your legal advisor and see 17 U.S.C. § 512 before filing a notice or counter-notice as there are penalties for false claims under the DMCA.
No waiver by Impossible Foods of any term or condition set forth in these Terms shall be effective unless in a writing signed by an authorized representative of Impossible Foods or be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition. Any failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver thereof or of any other provision.
Should any provision of these Terms be held to be invalid, unenforceable, or illegal by a court of competent jurisdiction, such ruling will not affect or impair the validity, enforceability, or legality of any remaining portions of this Agreement, and, in such event, such provision will be changed and interpreted so as to best accomplish the objectives of such unenforceable or invalid provision within the limits of applicable law. All remaining portions will remain in full force and effect as if the original Terms had been executed without the invalidated, unenforceable, or illegal part.
The provisions of these Terms which by their nature should survive the termination of these Terms shall survive such termination.
