THE SECTION BELOW ENTITLED “DISPUTE RESOLUTION” HAS A MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISION. IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS. PLEASE READ IT.
ABOUT Kukatsu K.K.
The restaurants available on our Sites operate independently and have entered into agreements with us to provide the food and delivery services available to you on the Sites. The restaurants are required to comply with national, prefecture and local laws, rules, regulations, and standards pertaining to the preparation, sale and marketing of food, including food preparation and safety and menu disclosure; Kukatsu K.K. is not responsible for the restaurants’ food preparation or safety and does not verify any restaurant’s compliance with applicable laws. In addition, Kukatsu K.K. does not guarantee the quality of what the restaurants sell, nor does it guarantee the services provided by the restaurant, including in those cases where the restaurant provides the delivery services. In addition, Kukatsu K.K. does not independently verify representations made by restaurants regarding their food, including without limitation any menu- or restaurant-level descriptors or disclosures.
Some deliveries are provided by Kukatsu’s network of independent delivery service providers (“DSPs”). DSPs have entered into agreements with Kukatsu, which require DSPs to comply with all applicable national, prefecture and local laws, rules and regulations, including without limitation traffic laws, requirements of the applicable Department of Transportation, and applicable insurance requirements. Kukatsu K.K. shall not be liable or responsible for any delivery services provided by DSPs or any errors or misrepresentations made by them.
You may only use the Sites to order if you are the authorized holder of the credit card used for payment or an authorized user of a corporate account and if you are able to form a binding contract with us. In addition, if you are a minor in the jurisdiction in which you reside (generally under the age of 18), you must have the permission of, and be directly supervised by, your parent or legal guardian to use the Sites, and your parent or legal guardian must read and agree to this Agreement prior to your using the Sites. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you are prohibited from using the Sites if you are under the age of 13.
Use of the Sites to order requires that you register and/or create an account (“Account”). To register and create an Account, you must create a username and password and provide certain personal information. In consideration of the use of the Sites’ services, you agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the registration form, and (b) maintain and promptly update the personal information you provide to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or Kukatsu K.K. has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Kukatsu K.K. has the right to block your current or future use of the Sites (or any portion thereof).
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your Account and password and for all activities or any other actions that occur under or are taken in connection with your password or Account. You agree to (a) immediately notify Kukatsu K.K. of any known or suspected unauthorized use(s) of your password or Account, or any known or suspected breach of security, including loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure of your password or credit card information; and (b) ensure that you exit from your Account at the end of each session. Kukatsu K.K. will not be liable for any injury, loss or damage of any kind arising from or relating to your failure to comply with (a) and (b) or for any acts or omissions by you or someone else using your Account and/or password.
OUR ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES POLICY
Some jurisdictions permit the ordering and delivery of alcoholic beverages. In such jurisdictions, if you place an order that includes any alcoholic beverage, you acknowledge that you are at least 20 years of age. Upon delivery or pickup, as applicable, you shall present a government-issued identification card, evidencing your age. If you do not comply with these terms, you agree that the alcoholic beverage(s) will not be released to you, and you shall forfeit the cost of such beverages.
OUR CREDIT POLICY
Unless prohibited by law, in the event of any error in your order or the amount you were charged, you are entitled to a credit, provided it is brought to our attention within 30 days of your order date. If you do not raise the issue within 30 days of your order date, you waive the ability to receive a credit for any error.
