You agree to pay any shipping and handling charges shown at the time you make a purchase. We reserve the right to increase, decrease, add, or eliminate shipping and handling charges from time to time, but we will provide notice of the charges applicable to you before you make your purchase. Generally, shipping is handled by UPS; however, we reserve the right to use other shipping couriers as needed. Actual delivery dates may vary. You agree that you will not obtain, or direct shipment of, a product for export. All products purchased from KnowSeafood (“Know Foods Corp.”) are made pursuant to a shipment contract.
You are responsible for inspecting all products you receive from KnowSeafood for any damage or other issues upon delivery. In addition, you are solely responsible for determining the freshness of the products you receive. You should always inspect your delivery to confirm that the ingredients arrive in a cool, refrigerated condition. We recommend that you use a food thermometer to ensure that the temperature zone within the container in which any seafood product is located is 40° F or below. In the unlikely event that such temperature zone is above 40° F, or you have any other reason to believe that any other product in your delivery is not suitable for consumption, contact us at support@KnowSeafood.com. Please be sure to attach photos of the item(s) and then discard the item(s).
To maintain the quality and integrity of the products, we recommend that you immediately refrigerate all perishable products upon delivery and follow the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (“USDA”) instructions on refrigeration and food safety, which can be found here. From the time of delivery, the condition and consumption of the products are solely at your risk, and you are solely responsible for the proper and safe washing, handling, preparation, storage, cooking, use and consumption of the products following delivery. We recommend that you follow the USDA’s instructions on safe food handling, which can be found here. We also recommend that all cooking instructions be followed and that you use a food thermometer to ensure that all seafood are cooked to the USDA’s recommended internal temperatures, which can be found here. Failure to follow safe food handling practices and temperature recommendations may increase the risk of foodborne illness. In addition, pregnant women, young children, the elderly and individuals with compromised immune systems should follow the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s recommendations on food consumption for at-risk groups, which can be found here. If you are not at home when your delivery arrives, the courier will generally leave the package for you at the door. Our ingredients are frozen and individually packaged and labeled. The ingredients are placed inside boxes that feature inbuilt insulation specially designed to keep seafood within the optimal temperature range, with dry ice if necessary. The amount of dry ice is carefully calculated based on your geographic location/guaranteed courier delivery time. When retrieved on the guaranteed delivery date, dry ice may be completely evaporated. Your order will typically remain cold and fresh for several hours but depending on the season and temperature in your geographic area at the time of delivery, advance planning by you should be made for proper storage of your ingredients prior to consumption. In certain areas, you may be able to provide additional delivery instructions when setting up your Know Foods Corp. (“KnowSeafood”) account, such as requesting that your delivery be left with a doorman or neighbor. Any individual at the delivery address who accepts a delivery from us is presumed to be authorized to receive such delivery. In cases in which you have designated an alternative receiver, such person shall accept the delivery under all of the same terms and conditions that would apply had you accepted the delivery yourself. In the case of inclement weather or other events beyond our control that interfere with our ability to delivery your order, we will attempt to delivery your order as soon as reasonably possible. In the event of a courier delay, please inspect the contents carefully and email support@KnowSeafood.com immediately with any concerns. Please be sure to attach photos for review. In some cases, delivery may occur prior to the scheduled delivery date. In the event that timely delivery of your ingredients is not feasible, we will cancel your delivery for the period so affected and issue you a credit or refund of the purchase price for that delivery.
You are not permitted to resell or otherwise use the products for commercial purposes.
