These terms and conditions ("Terms") apply to your use of the Ritual website at www.ritual.co (the "Website"), the Service and the Application (as defined below), as well as to all information, recommendations and/or services provided to you on or through the Website, the Service and the Application.
Please read these Terms carefully before using our website Application or Service. By using or accessing any part of the Website, Application or ordering products via the Application (whether now or in the future), you agree to be bound by these Terms. We reserve the right to change these Terms from time to time by changing them on this page.
These Terms are between you and Ritual Technologies Inc. (“Ritual”) which is a company registered in Ontario, Canada with offices located at 488 Wellington Street West, Suite 204, Toronto, ON, Canada, M5V 1E3. When used in these Terms, the terms “us”, “we” and “our” refer to Ritual.
We provide information and a way for you to communicate your orders ("Orders") for products or services ("Products") from third party restaurants ("Restaurants"), which may be requested through the use of an application supplied by Ritual and downloaded and installed by you on your single mobile device (smartphone) ("the Application"). All services provided by Ritual to you by means of your use of the Application are hereafter referred to as the "Service".
Ritual is a platform only to connect you to Restaurants, does not provide the Products or operate any of the Restaurants, and is not itself a restaurant. The provision of the Product and fulfilment of any Orders by the Restaurant to you is subject to the agreement (to be) entered into between you and the Restaurant. Ritual shall never be a party to such agreement. It is up to the Restaurant to accept Orders for Products and services, which may be requested through the use of the Application or the Service.
Ritual only acts as intermediary between you and the Restaurants, acting as the agent for each Restaurant to arrange and conclude your Orders. When you pay for an Order on the Application or Service this extinguishes your debt owed to the Restaurant for that Order.
By using the Application or the Service, you are entering into a contract with Ritual under these Terms. In order to be able to use the Application or Service, you first need to sign-up with Ritual. When signing-up, you are obligated to provide Ritual with certain personal information, including your mobile telephone number and payment card data. Upon successfully signing-up with Ritual, Ritual will provide you with a personal account, accessible for you with a password of your choice.
You have to be at least the age of majority or older in your jurisdiction of residence in order to use the Service or Application. If you reside in a jurisdiction that restricts the use of the Service or Application because of your age, or restricts the ability to enter into contracts such as this one due to age, you must abide by such age limits and you must not use the Service and the Application. You represent that if you are an individual, you are of the age of majority to enter into a binding contract, or that if you are registering on behalf of a legal entity, that you are authorized to enter into, and bind the entity to, these Terms and register for the Service and the Application.
The Application allows you to send Orders to Restaurants. The GPS receiver - which should be installed on the mobile device (smart phone) on which you have downloaded the Application - detects your location and uses your location to optimize sending an Order to a Restaurant. The Restaurant has sole and complete discretion to accept or reject each Order. Once you have submitted your Order and your payment has been authorized, you will not be entitled to change or cancel your Order, nor will you be entitled to a refund of your Order. Ritual encourages all our Restaurants to accept all Orders and to communicate any rejection promptly, and Ritual will notify you as soon as reasonably practicable if a Restaurant rejects your Order. Restaurants have the discretion to reject Orders at any time because they are too busy, due to weather conditions or for any other reason. If the Restaurant accepts a request, the Application notifies you and provides an estimate on when your Order will be ready. Neither Ritual nor the Restaurant guarantee that Orders will be ready for pick-up within the estimated times.
If you have any issues with your order, or wish to change or cancel your order, you may contact us directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will assist you in resolving your issue directly with the Restaurant. However, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to get in touch with the Restaurant or change or cancel an order.
You warrant that the information you provide to Ritual is accurate and complete and that you will keep the information you have provided to Ritual current through the Application. Ritual is entitled at all times to verify the information that you have provided and to refuse the Service or use of the Application without providing reasons.

If Ritual decides to introduce such a fee, Ritual shall inform you accordingly and allow you to either continue or terminate your use of the Service.
Ritual shall charge you on behalf of the Restaurant for the Order placed by you. You agree that you will pay for all Products you purchase from the Restaurant, and that Ritual may charge you the total amount for your Order using the payment method provided by you when registering for the Service for the Products (including any taxes and late fees, as applicable). You are responsible for the timely payment of all fees and for providing Ritual with a valid method of payment at all times. Any payment made is non-refundable. Payment options available to you when registering for the Service may include all major credit cards, Debit/Visa (traditional debit cards are not accepted), Google Pay, Apple Pay and Apple Pay Cash (in US only).
