The Karma service is a sales channel via which merchants offer take away food items to registered users. In these terms of Karma service, the term “merchants” refers to restaurants, but it may also refer to other food providers operating e.g. in the grocery, cafe or bakery sector. The aim of this service is to give users the opportunity to purchase and pick-up food from restaurants and other providers that would otherwise go to waste. The Karma service allows users to eat affordably and become acquainted with nearby merchants.
The purpose of this Agreement is to explain the terms and conditions under which Karma will let you use the Application through your mobile device and/or use the Website (collectively, the “Purpose“).
As also mention in other parts of this Agreement, Karma does not have any control over any merchants or other third parties, and therefore is not liable or responsible for any actions taken or supposed to be taken by any such third party.
3. The Karma Service
To use the ordering service and the features made available through the Application and Website, you are required to complete a registration process to create an account with Karma (“Account”).
When you create your account you are given access to use Karma’s software platform made available through Karma’s mobile application (“Application”) and/or its website located at www.karma.life (the ” Website”) during the Term (as defined below) solely for the Purpose.
Creating your Account offers you easy access to see food available near you, your current order, your previous orders, and edit your personal preferences. In order to create your Account, it is necessary to provide personal information, which includes but is not limited to, your name, contact information and payment information.
3.2 Supply of food items
Karma works with local merchants to offer you the opportunity to purchase and pick up food that would otherwise go to waste. The supply of food items is depending on each merchant’s daily business, and as such it is not guaranteed that food is available at all times you use the Application or the Website.
3.3 Information about the food items
Through the Application you are presented with a description of the food item so that you as a customer will get as good information about ingredients, allergens, price discount etc. The Karma service is not the provider or the producer of the food items listed in the service nor is Karma responsible for the information given about each food item. The provider of the food items is responsible for all the information regarding the food item. Would you have any questions regarding given information about a food item, Karma directs you to the merchant.
3.4 Order and order confirmation
As a logged in Karma user, you can place an order for a food item through the Application or Website. After placing the order you will get an order confirmation via the user interface of the Application or Website.
3.5 Payment of the order
You pay for ordered food items through the Application or Website. If an ordered hasn’t been paid for through the Application or Website, it will not be considered a completed order. Furthermore, as all food items are sold on a first come first serve basis, Karma can not guarantee that you will get the food item you have started, but not finished, ordering.
Karma may use a payment service provided by a third-party to handle the payment and will automatically charge your chosen account at the time of your order. You have no right to cancel or change a placed order when using the Application or the Website. The restriction of the right of cancel a made order is based on the nature of food which may spoil or age rapidly.

Unless stated otherwise by the merchant, you are not entitled to receive a refund for ordered food items that have not been collected on time.
Karma does not currently charge its users to access and use the Application or the Website, however Karma may, at any point and in its discretion, elect to begin charging fees for use of various portions of the Application, the Website and/or for different levels of subscription or accounts.
3.8 Reclamations and service disruptions
The Karma service is a sales channel via which merchants’ food items are traded. The Karma service is not the provider or the producer of the food items listed in the service. Karma is not responsible for the quality of the food items ordered through the service or errors that may occur during the pickup of an order. The merchant is responsible for all the user reclamations concerning the food item and Karma directs the reclamations to the merchant.
The cooperating merchants are committed to preparing the food items offered through the service in compliance with the legislation concerning the handling, storing and transportation of food and in accordance with the established principles and practices of the industry.
