PROVISION OF THE REUSABLES SERVICES
The Reusables Service.
- Container Sharing Service. The Reusables Services include a container sharing service (the “Container Sharing Service”) that allows Account holders who have a subscription to the Container Sharing Service, or non-Account holders who have agreed to these Terms of Service as outlined in Section 1.1 to borrow reusable cups and containers for food and beverages (collectively, the “Containers”) when ordering takeout from certain participating restaurants, food purveyors, and stores (collectively, “Stores”), subject to availability of Containers at the Store fulfilling the takeout order. You can find out which Stores are participating in the Container Sharing Service by visiting our Site, scanning the QR code on any Container or through our App. For clarity, orders for takeout are not made through the Reusables Service but are instead either made directly to the Store or through a third-party food ordering service. Circular Solutions is not responsible for fulfilling your takeout orders.
- We may make available various subscription plans for the Container Sharing Service and other services we might provide from time to time (each, a “Subscription Plan”). Unfortunately, our Container Sharing Service is not available everywhere in the world – you can only subscribe if you live in one of our service areas. Check out our Site to confirm if you live within one of our service areas. We may decline to provide you with the Container Sharing Service, even if you are within one of our delivery areas. You may not have more than one Subscription Plan per Account.
- Containers Subject to Availability. To order takeout in Containers from Stores, you may be required to have a subscription to the Container Sharing Services and follow the takeout ordering process posted on our Site or App which describes how to notify the Store that you would like your takeout order to be packed in a Container. Your ability to receive your takeout order in a Container is dependent on the Store from which you are ordering takeout having sufficient stock of Containers to fulfill your order using Containers. We are not responsible or liable if at any time a Store is unable or unwilling to pack your takeout order in the Containers and you will not be entitled to a refund in such circumstance.
- Supported Stores. You acknowledge that Containers will be available only from participating Stores and that the Stores may change from time to time.
- Care of Containers. You are responsible for the care of all Containers in you possession or control. You shall properly store and handle the Containers in your possession and control. You shall be responsible for any damage to the Containers that have been provided to you.
- Return of Containers. After you have received a Container, you shall use the App to return the Container(s) to any of the participating Stores or return locations undamaged and cleaned no later than the return deadline specified on the Site (as may be updated by Circular Solutions from time to time) or App. You shall return all Containers to Circular Solutions using the App or one of the return methods specified on the Site (as may be updated by Circular Solutions from time to time). If you fail to return a Container by the applicable return deadline, we may charge the card you used to access the Reusables Service an amountequal to the value of each unreturned Container, which may be refundable within a certain period of time if you return the Container late.. If you lose or damage a Container, we may charge you a replacement fee for each lost or damaged Container. Before returning a Container to us, you must clean the Container. You authorize us to charge the fees referred to in this paragraph to your payment method on file in your Account without further notice to you.
- Pickup of Containers. If you are in one of our supported pickup areas, you may submit a request on the App or a 3rd pary platform to have your Containers picked-up. Pickup services are provided by independent service providers of Circular Solutions (“Couriers”). If your pickup request has been accepted by a Courier, we may charge you a pickup fee in the amount specified on the App (as may be updated by Circular Solutions from time to time). When using the pickup service, you must follow all pickup instructions provided by us and provided by the Courier related to the Container pickup process. You are solely responsible for ensuring that your Containers are available for pickup by the Couriers at the designated pickup time. You shall ensure that the Couriers can safely access the area from which they will pickup your Containers. No refunds will be provided to you if a Courier is unable to pickup your Containers due to your failure to comply with these Terms or any other cause attributable to you.
- Ownership of Containers. Containers are the property of Circular Solutions, unless stated otherwise.
- Recurring Subscriptions. When you sign up for one of our Subscription Plans, it is a recurring subscription that auto-renews successively until cancelled in accordance with these Terms. This means that you will be charged an initial fee and then thereafter on a recurring basis for your Subscription Plan. You authorize us (or our third-party payment processor) to charge your payment method the initial fee and then on a recurring basis for your Subscription Plan, unless you cancelled your Subscription Plan in accordance with these Terms. Cancellation of a Subscription Plan becomes effective at the end of your then-current subscription period. Upon cancellation of your Subscription Plan, you will cease to have access to the service to which you subscribed. For example, upon cancellation of your subscription to the Container Sharing Service, you will no longer be able to elect to receive your takeout orders from Stores packed in the Containers. We may change the fee associated with your Subscription Plan by providing you with advance written notice of change and such new few will apply to the next renewal of your Subscription Plan unless you have cancelled your Subscription Plan in accordance with these Terms.
- You may cancel your Subscription Plan by following instructions in the App or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your cancellation request and such cancellation will become effective at the end of your then-current subscription period. Cancellation of your Subscription Plan will not release you of your obligations to pay to Circular Solutions all amounts owed by you to Circular Solutions.
- Non-Recurring Purchases. From time to time, we may sell products or services on a non-subscription basis (“Non-Subscription Products”). Purchase of Non-Subscription Products will have a one-time fee, unless otherwise indicated in writing, and may have applicable tax and shipping fees.
- Provision of Reusables Services by Service Providers. Sometimes third parties or other contractors or Affiliates of ours will provide some the Reusables Services to you on behalf of Circular Solutions (such third parties who provide Reusables Services on our behalf, the “Service Providers”). You acknowledge and agree that the Service Providers may provide Reusables Services to you and you agree that we may disclose your personal information to such Service Providers to the extent necessary to enable them to provide such Reusables Services.
- Personal Use. The Reusables Services are for personal use only.
Freshness of Food.
- Our Containers have not been designed to keep takeout at a safe temperature or to preserve the freshness of takeout. Once you are in possession of a Container containing takeout, you become responsible for ensuring the freshness and safety of all takeout contained in the Containers and for checking the takeout for spoilage before consuming it.
- You are responsible for ensuring that your takeout contained in the Containers is safe for consumption before consuming it or sharing it with other persons. Among other things, this means checking the contents of any Container to confirm that no items are spoiled, contaminated, or damaged, ensuring that perishable foods and beverages are promptly refrigerated and stored at safe temperatures, ensuring that all foods have been cooked to appropriate internal temperatures, and following food safety and handling guidelines. For more information on safe food handling, check out the Government of Canada’s Safe Food Handling Tips. The foregoing is not an exhaustive resource – consult an expert if you unsure about the safety of your food. Failure to follow appropriate food cooking, safety, and handling practices may increase risk of food borne illnesses.

If we reasonably determine you have violated the terms applicable to the Promotion, we may charge you the full price for the produce or service that was otherwise subject to the Promotion. At the end of any free trials, if you have not cancelled your Subscription Plan, you agree that we (or our third-party payment processor) may begin charging you for your Subscription Plan without additional notice to you.
