If you do not agree to these Terms, you may not access or use the Sites or order, receive or use the kombucha or other products made available through the Sites (collectively, the “Products”).

We may amend the Agreement from time to time in our sole discretion. If we make changes to these Terms, we will provide notice of such changes, such as by sending an email notification, providing notice through the Sites or updating the “Last Updated” date at the beginning of these Terms. The latest Agreement will be posted on the Site, and you should review the Agreement prior to using Bucha Belly Products.

PRIVACY. Please refer to our Privacy Policy for information about how we collect, use and disclose information about you.

By using the Sites, you represent and warrant that you (a) are 18 years of age or older, (b) are a legal resident of the United States, (c) have not been previously suspended or removed from the Sites, or engaged in any activity that could result in suspension or removal from the Sites, (d) do not have more than one Bucha Belly account, and (e) have full power and authority to enter into these Terms and in so doing will not violate any other agreement to which you are a party.

Following your initial subscription period, and each subscription period thereafter, your subscription will be automatically extended for successive renewal periods of the same length, at the then-current non-promotional subscription rate associated with your subscription plan.

CANCELLATION POLICY.YOU MAY CANCEL YOUR KOMBUCHA SUBSCRIPTION AT ANY TIME BY EMAILING US AT SUPPORT@BUCHA BELLY.COM FROM THE EMAIL ADDRESS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR ACCOUNT, AND REQUESTING THAT YOUR SUBSCRIPTION BE CANCELED.

YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL KOMBUCHA SUBSCRIPTION CHARGES (IN ADDITION TO ANY APPLICABLE TAXES AND OTHER CHARGES) INCURRED BEFORE THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF YOUR CANCELLATION.

If you cancel, you may use your subscription until the end of your then-current subscription term; your subscription will not be renewed after your then-current term expires. If you are subscribed to a pre-paid subscription plan with more than one delivery per payment, you may request to forgo any remaining deliveries from your subscription. If you request not to receive your remaining deliveries, you may be eligible for a prorated refund. To be eligible for a prorated refund, your request must be made by emailing support@Bucha Belly.com within seventy-two (72) hours from your original cancellation email request. A cancellation or refund request does not guarantee a refund. All refunds are provided at Bucha Belly’s sole discretion.

In the event you cancel your Kombucha Subscription, please note that we may still send you promotional communications about Bucha Belly, unless you opt out of receiving those communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided therein.

FREE TRIALS AND DISCOUNTS.From time to time, we may offer free trials or discounts for specified periods of time.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR CANCELING YOUR SUBSCRIPTION ARE DESCRIBED IN SECTIONS ABOVE. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A NOTICE FROM US THAT YOUR FREE TRIAL OR DISCOUNT PERIOD HAS ENDED OR THAT THE PAID PORTION OF YOUR SUBSCRIPTION HAS BEGUN. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO MODIFY OR TERMINATE FREE TRIALS OR DISCOUNTS AT ANY TIME, WITHOUT NOTICE AND IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION.

PAYMENT AND BILLING INFORMATION. By providing a credit card or other payment method that we accept, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated payment method and that you authorize us (or our third party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the total amount of your subscription or other purchase (including any applicable taxes and other charges) (collectively, as applicable, an “Order”).
