We are building the best Services we can for you but we can’t promise they will be perfect.

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, this limitation applies to all claims, whether based on warranty, contract, tort, or any other legal theory, whether or not Schnucks has been informed of the possibility of such damage, and further where a remedy set forth herein is found to have failed its essential purpose.

- Governing Law
These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Missouri and controlling U.S. federal law as applicable, without regard to its conflict of law principles.
- Disputes and Arbitration, Class Action Waiver, Jurisdiction and Venue
YOU AND SCHNUCKS AGREE TO SUBMIT ANY AND ALL DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE (A “DISPUTE”) TO BINDING ARBITRATION. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you and Schnucks agree that any disputes arising out of or related to your use of the Services (a “Dispute”) will be resolved by binding arbitration pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act (Title 9 of the United States Code), which shall govern the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration agreement (“Arbitration Agreement”). In arbitration, Disputes are resolved by a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, discovery is more limited than in court, and the arbitrator’s decision is subject to limited review by courts. The arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court, including monetary damages, injunctive relief, and declaratory relief. Judgment on the arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Such dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. Except where prohibited, you and we agree to submit to the personal and exclusive arbitration of Disputes relating to your general use of the Services under the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association. Please visit www.adr.org for more information about arbitration.Any arbitration between you and us, to the extent necessary, will be conducted remotely as provided below.The arbitration will be conducted in English. A single independent and impartial arbitrator will be appointed pursuant to the rules of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator will decide all issues relating to the enforceability, interpretation, scope, and application of this Arbitration Agreement (including “gateway” issues of arbitrability, whether the Arbitration Agreement is unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration), and these Terms, except that a court may resolve any question regarding the validity or enforceability of the class action waiver set forth in this Arbitration Agreement. The term “Dispute” and the requirement to arbitrate will be broadly interpreted.Both you and we agree to comply with the following rules, which are intended to streamline the dispute resolution process and reduce the costs and burdens for everyone involved:
the arbitration will be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner to be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration;
the arbitration will not require any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed in writing by the parties; and
any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Barring extraordinary circumstances, the arbitrator will issue his or her decision within 120 days from the date the arbitrator is appointed. The arbitrator may extend this time limit for an additional 30 days in the interests of justice. All arbitration proceedings will be closed to the public and confidential and all records relating thereto will be permanently sealed, except as necessary to obtain court confirmation of the arbitration award. The award of the arbitrator will be in writing and will include a statement describing the reasons for the disposition of any claim.
You also acknowledge and understand that, with respect to any dispute with us arising out of or relating to your choice to maintain an account, access or use the Services:
You are giving up your right to have a trial by jury;
You are giving up your right to serve as a representative, as a private attorney general, or in any other representative capacity, or to participate as a member of a class of claimants, in any lawsuit involving any such dispute; and
You must file any claim within one (1) year after such claim arose or it is forever barred.
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the American Arbitration Association’s rules.
If this arbitration provision is found to be null and void, then all disputes arising under the Terms between us will be subject to the jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in the state of Missouri, and you and we hereby submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of these courts. You and Schnucks agree that if for any reason a Dispute proceeds in court rather than arbitration: (1) you and Schnucks waive any right to a jury trial; (2) the Dispute will proceed solely on an individual, non-class, non-representative basis; and (3) neither you nor Schnucks may be a class representative or class member or otherwise participate in any class, representative, consolidated, or private attorney general proceeding.
This agreement to arbitrate will not preclude you or Schnucks from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration, including without limitation orders to stay a court action, compel arbitration or confirm an arbitral award, from a court of competent jurisdiction. Furthermore, this agreement to arbitrate will not preclude you or Schnucks from (i) applying to the appropriate court of competent jurisdiction for a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, or other interim or conservatory relief, as necessary, or (ii) seeking relief in any state or federal court for disputes related to a violation or possible violation of Schnucks’ intellectual property rights.
If our relationship or these Terms terminate, it will not limit any of our other rights or remedies, and any provision of these Terms that must survive in order to give proper effect to the intent and purpose of these Terms will survive termination including without limitation Sections 2 (Ownership and Use of Content), 3 (Fitness and Wellness Activities and Dietary Guidance), 5 (No Warranties), 6 (Limitations of Liability), 7 (Indemnification), 9 (Disputes and Arbitration, Jurisdiction and Venue), and 10 (Survival).
You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and us as a result of the Terms or your use of the Services. The Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us with respect to your use of the Services.Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms does not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms remain in full force and effect.You may not assign, delegate, or otherwise transfer your account or your obligations under these Terms without our prior written consent. We have the right, in our sole discretion, to transfer or assign all or any part of our rights under these Terms and will have the right to delegate or use third-party contractors to fulfill our duties and obligations under these Terms and in connection with the Services.Our notice to you via email, regular mail, or notices or links displayed in connection with the Services constitutes acceptable notice to you under the Terms. We are not responsible for your failure to receive notice if email is quarantined by your email security system (e.g., “junk” or “spam” folder) or if you fail to update your email address. Notice will be considered received forty-eight hours after it is sent if transmitted via email or regular mail. In the event that notice is provided via links displayed in connection with the Services, then it will be considered received twenty-four hours after it is first displayed.
In the event of any conflict between these Terms and Conditions and the terms and conditions of Schnucks’ Reward Program Terms and Conditions (“Reward Terms and Conditions”), the Reward Terms and Conditions shall control.
