FOODMAP Terms and Conditions of Use
Effective as of 05 September 2019
Thanks for choosing FOODMAP by Leonid Grebeniuk. FOODMAP has been designed to help people following the low FODMAP diet by providing clear and simple ratings of everyday foods.
It has been several years since Monash University first started publishing information about FODMAPs. There are now many sources of FODMAP information out there and occasionally the data can be conflicting. As such the safest solution would supplement your FODMAP diet with a food journal to track your intake and symptoms.
The app is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Using FOODMAP and any advice gained from it is at the liability of the user. We cannot be held liable for any actions taken by the user or any consequences thereof.
Your agreement with us includes these Terms. You acknowledge that you have read and understood the Agreements, accept these Agreements, and agree to be bound by them. If you don’t agree with (or cannot comply with) the Agreements, then you may not use the FOODMAP service or access any Content.
We may update or require you to update the Services to implement technical adjustments or make improvements, provided that the Services shall always match the description provided in all material respects. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that are added to the current Services, including the release of new tools and resources, shall be subject to these Terms.
To use the FOODMAP Service and access any Content, you confirm that you are at least 13 years old; and your use of the Services will not violate any applicable law or regulation in the province state, territory or country in which you reside.
2 Changes to the Agreements
Occasionally we may make changes to the Agreements for valid reasons, such as improving the existing functions or features or adding new functions or features to the Service, implementing advancements in science and technology, and reasonable technical adjustments to the Service, ensuring the operability or the security of the Service, and for legal or regulatory reasons. When we make material changes to the Agreements, we’ll provide you with notice as appropriate under the circumstances, e.g., by displaying a prominent notice or seeking your agreement within the Service. In some cases, we will notify you in advance, and your continued use of the Service after the changes have been made will constitute your acceptance of the changes. Please, therefore, make sure you read any such notice carefully. If you do not wish to continue using the Service under the new version of the Agreements, please do not register to use, access or continue to use the application.
3 Enjoying FOODMAP
Here’s some information about all the ways you can enjoy FOODMAP.
3.1 Service Options
You can find a description of our Service on the help section in the settings page. Certain options are provided to you free-of-charge. The FOODMAP Service that does not require payment is currently referred to as the “Free Service.” Other options require payment before you can access them (the “Auto-renewable Subscriptions”). We may also offer special promotional plans or memberships. We reserve the right to modify, terminate or otherwise amend our offered subscription plans and promotional offerings at any time by these Terms.
3.2 FOODMAP Group
The FOODMAP Group is a place for discussions and exchange of information, tips, and other materials related to the FOODMAP Service.
4 Payments and cancellations
You may purchase an Auto-renewable Subscription directly from FOODMAP.
Payment will be charged to your Apple ID account at the confirmation of purchase.
FOODMAP may change the price for the Auto-renewable Subscriptions, from time to time and will communicate any price changes to you in advance and, if applicable, how to accept those changes. Price changes will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price change. Subject to applicable law, you accept the new price by continuing to use the FOODMAP Service after the price change takes effect.
If you do not agree with a price change, you have the right to reject the change by unsubscribing from the Paid Subscription before the price change going into effect. If you select the Monthly Plan your subscription will automatically renew as a rolling subscription and renew at the end of each monthly period, being one month (or as near to the date as possible) from the date on which your Monthly Plan was activated. If you select the Annual Plan, your subscription will automatically renew as a rolling subscription at the end of each annual period, on the date on which your Annual Plan was activated (each being a “Renewal”).
4.2 Renewal; Cancellation
Subscription automatically renews unless it is canceled at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. Your account will be charged for renewal within 24 hours before the end of the current period. You can manage and cancel your subscriptions by going to your account settings on the App Store after purchase.
