INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY COMPLAINTS

Chow respects the intellectual property of others. If you believe that your intellectual property rights are being infringed, please contact us

 

RISK OF LOSS

All purchases of physical items from Chow are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier.

 

RETURNS, REFUNDS AND TITLE

Chow does not take title to returned items until the item arrives at our fulfillment center. At our discretion, a refund may be issued without requiring a return. In this situation, Chow does not take title to the refunded item. 

 

PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS

Chow attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, Amazon does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of any Chow Service is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered by Chow itself is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition.

 

PRICING

"List Price" means the suggested retail price of a product as provided by a manufacturer, supplier, or seller. We regularly check List Prices against prices recently found on Chow and other retailers. Certain products may have a "Old Price" displayed, which is determined using recent price history of the product on Chow.

With respect to items sold by Chow, we cannot confirm the price of an item until you order. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our catalog may be mispriced. If the correct price of an item sold by Chow is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation. Other merchants may follow different policies in the event of a mispriced item.

We generally do not charge your credit card until after your order has entered the shipping process

CHOWPOD Partnership: How it Works

Buy-In cost to operate a Chow v1 Machine: $12,000 (excluding shipping) 

The partner is responsible for looking for the machine location, and managing the machine on a day to day basis. Chow sends the partner the first 50 products (FREE) to start, and the partner must buy exclusively from Chow from thereon.

Revenue Split: The partner keeps 60% of the revenues while Chow keeps 40%. Machine shipping costs also apply.

N/B: Please note that this is a Chow V1 machine without our contactless technology and age-verification.
 
 
To  start the process of operating a machine, please email  [email protected] 
 

 

SHIPPING AGE-RESTRICTED PRODUCTS

Sellers are required to do their due diligence when shipping age-restricted products to a customer. We are the first line of defense/verification for the seller online. After the product is shipped, the seller is responsible for where the item is shipped to. We strongly advise that sellers ship with signature confirmation to ensure that the customer that receives the item is the age-verified customer online.

 

OTHER BUSINESSES

Parties other than Chow operate stores, provide services or software, or sell product lines through the Chow Services. In addition, we provide links to the sites of affiliated companies and certain other businesses. If you purchase any of the products or services offered by these businesses or individuals, you are purchasing directly from those third parties, not from Chow. We are not responsible for examining or evaluating, and we do not warrant, the offerings of any of these businesses or individuals (including the content of their Web sites). Chow does not assume any responsibility or liability for the actions, product, and content of all these and any other third parties.

Chow is not responsible for the production of any type of CBD product. Customers should do their diligence on reading reviews of products and reading labels when they receive products in the mail. All issues regarding health concerns should be directed to the Brand Manufacturer. Chow only stands as a middle man between the Manufacturer.

 

DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

THE CHOW SERVICES AND ALL INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) AND OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE CHOW SERVICES ARE PROVIDED BY CHOW ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. CHOW MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE OPERATION OF THE CHOW SERVICES, OR THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE CHOW SERVICES, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE CHOW SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK.

TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, CHOW DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. CHOW DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE AMAZON SERVICES, INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE CHOW SERVICES, CHOW'S SERVERS OR ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS SENT FROM CHOW ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, CHOW WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING FROM THE USE OF ANY CHOW SERVICE, OR FROM ANY INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH ANY CHOW SERVICE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING.

 

DISPUTES

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any Chow Service, or to any products or services sold or distributed by Chow or through Chow420.com will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.

There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Conditions of Use as a court would.

To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $100 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, Amazon will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.

We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.

 

APPLICABLE LAW

By using any Chow Service, you agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, applicable federal law, and the laws of the state of Delware, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Conditions of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Chow.

By using any Chow Service, you  agree to the following:
