Terms and Conditions of Use

Here are our Terms and Conditions of Use. This is important and affects your legal rights, so please read them and our Privacy Policy and other terms referenced in this document carefully.

Updated as of May 2018

We are required by law to state how we do business, plus we want to ensure you know what you are signing up for. The main points here that you are most likely going to be interested in are that we expect you to use Real Plans responsibly and we are not liable if you send a claim against us for any part of our service. It also states the difference between refund guarantees. For payments made on the Website or Android, Real Plans products have a 30 day period and Whole30 products a 10 day period. Refunds for purchases made on iTunes are subject to Apple’s terms and conditions.

We really hope you enjoy using Real Plans. We inspire many, many households just like yours to cook amazing food consistently. Anyhow… here goes…. now for the details.

1 Introduction

Thanks for choosing Real Plans (“Real Plans”, “we”, “us”, “our”). By signing up or otherwise using the Real Plans service, websites, and software applications (together, the “Real Plans Service” or “Service”), or accessing any content or material that is made available by Real Plans through the Service (the “Content”) you are entering into a binding contract with the Real Plans entity indicated at the bottom of this document. The Real Plans Service also includes the Real Plans Support Community as further described in the Real Plans Support Community section.

The Real Plans Service includes social and interactive features. Use of the Real Plans Service relies on several technical requirements.

Your agreement with us includes these Terms and Conditions of Use (“Terms”) and our Privacy Policy. (The Terms, Privacy Policy, and any additional terms that you agree to, as discussed in the Entire Agreement section, are referred to together as the “Agreements”.) If you wish to review the terms of the Agreements, the effective version of the Agreements can be found on Real Plans’s website. You acknowledge that you have read and understood the Agreements, accept these Agreements, and agree to be bound by them. If you don’t agree with (or cannot comply with) the Agreements, then you may not use the Real Plans Service or consume any Content.

Please read the Agreements carefully. They cover important information about Real Plans Services provided to you and any charges, taxes, and fees we bill you. The Agreements include information about future changes to the Agreements, export controls, automatic renewals, limitations of liability, privacy information, a class action waiver, and resolution of disputes by arbitration instead of in court.

Any information that you provided during sign-up can be corrected during the sign-up process by returning to the previous screens and correcting erroneous information.

In order to use the Real Plans Service and access the Content, you need to (1) be 18 or older (2) have the power to enter a binding contract with us and not be barred from doing so under any applicable laws, and (3) be resident in a country where the Service is available. You also promise that any registration information that you submit to Real Plans is true, accurate, and complete, and you agree to keep it that way at all times.

2 Changes to the Agreements

Occasionally we may, in our discretion, make changes to the Agreements. When we make material changes to the Agreements, we’ll provide you with prominent notice as appropriate under the circumstances, e.g., by displaying a prominent notice within the Service or by sending you an email. In some cases, we will notify you in advance, and your continued use of the Service after the changes have been made will constitute your acceptance of the changes. Please make sure you read any such notice carefully. If you do not wish to continue using the Service under the new version of the Agreements, you may terminate the Agreements by contacting our support team.

3 Our Services & Paid Subscriptions

Real Plans provides meal planning services offering a selection of recipes and other content. All Real Plans services require payment before you can access them. The Real Plans services that may be accessed after payment are currently referred to as a “Paid Subscription”. You can learn more about our services by visiting our website.

The Paid Subscription may not be available to all users. We will explain which services are available to you when you are signing up for the services. If you cancel your subscription, or if your subscription is interrupted (for example, if you change your payment details), you may not be able to re-subscribe for the Paid Subscription.

3.1 Paid Subscription Pricing

For paid subscriptions there may be pricing differences depending on where you purchase the service.

If you purchase the service on the website, the pricing is as follows:

1 month recurring subscription: $14
3 month recurring subscription: $33 ($11 a month)
12 month recurring subscription: $72 ($6 a month)

If you purchase the service on iTunes/Android, the pricing is as follows:

1 month recurring subscription: $13.99
3 month recurring subscription: $32.99 ($11 a month)
12 month recurring subscription: $69.99 ($5.83 a month)

1 month recurring Real Plans + Whole30 subscription: $19.99
3 month recurring Real Plans + Whole30 subscription: $49.99 ($16.66 a month)
12 month recurring Real Plans + Whole30 subscription: $99.99 ($8.33 a month)

We are not able to match the exact pricing within iTunes/Android pricing structure to match pre-existing Website pricing, hence the slight difference.

You may also be able to purchase different recipe add-on packages ranging from $1 – $5 a month.

10 Customer support

For customer support with account-related and payment-related questions (“Customer Support Queries”), please submit a ticket to our customer service department by using our chat feature on the Website. We will use reasonable endeavors to respond to all Customer Support Queries within a reasonable time frame, but we make no guarantees or warranties of any kind that any Customer Support Queries will be responded to within any particular time frame, and/or that we will be able to satisfactorily answer any such queries.

11 Payments, cancellations, and refunds

Paid Subscriptions can be purchased either by paying a monthly, quarterly or annual subscription fee. When you register for a Paid Subscription you consent to get access to Real Plans immediately.

11.1 You purchased your Paid Subscription using our Website

Payment will be charged to your credit card account at confirmation of your purchase.

You can cancel your paid subscription at any time within the application by contacting support.

To cancel, simply follow this link https://app.realplans.com//Settings/Index/#MyAccount and login to your account if not already. You can “Cancel Account” right there on the bottom of your MyAccount page. If you cancel, you will be able to access your current subscription until the end of the current period.

For all paid subscriptions we offer a 1-time 30-day money back guarantee for Real Plans products conducted on the Website for new users, 10 days for Whole30 products. If you wish to receive a full refund of all monies paid before the refund period is over, you must contact Customer Support and we will refund your money within 48 hours. Once the refund is conducted you will no longer have access to your content.

11.2 You purchased your Paid Subscription using iTunes

Payment will be charged to your iTunes account at confirmation of your purchase. The Paid Subscription will automatically renew unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. Your iTunes account will be charged for renewal within 24 hours of the end of the current period.

You can manage your subscriptions and turn off auto-renew from your iTunes Account Settings after purchase. If you turn off auto-renew you will be able to access your current subscription until the end of the current period. A current subscription cannot be cancelled while it is active.

Because payments made through iTunes, the App Store (for iOS devices), or the Mac App Store (for Mac OS X devices) are processed by Apple, we cannot refund you directly. They are not processed by our service, and we only receive the payment confirmation from Apple. To directly ask for a refund from Apple, please open the iTunes receipt that was sent after purchasing the Paid Subscription. Apple usually sends the receipt within one or two days. On the receipt, click on the “Report a Problem” link in the “Item” column, right next to “Write a Review”. Then, a new window will open. Ask for a refund to Apple there.

11.2 You purchased your Paid Subscription using Android

Payment will be charged to your Google Play account at confirmation of your purchase. The Paid Subscription will automatically renew unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. Your Google Play account will be charged for renewal within 24 hours of the end of the current period.

You can manage your subscriptions and turn off auto-renew from your Account Settings after purchase. If you turn off auto-renew you will be able to access your current subscription until the end of the current period. A current subscription cannot be cancelled while it is active.

For all paid subscriptions we offer a 1-time 30-day money back guarantee for Real Plans products conducted for new users, 10 days for Whole30 products. If you wish to receive a full refund of all monies paid before the refund period is over, you must contact Customer Support and we will refund your money within 48 hours. You can also request a refund inside your Google Play account and it will be reviewed per their purchase agreement. Once the refund is conducted you will no longer have access to your content.

12 Disclaimer

Additionally, we make no representation or warrant that any Content within our Services is accurate, complete, reliable, or error-free. We do not make representation that the Content or Services is suitable for a particular use by you or one of your family members.

Limited Liability. To the fullest extent permissible under applicable law, Real Plans limits our liability. In particular we will not be liable for any damages that we cause unintentionally and we will not be liable to you for any actual, incidental, indirect or consequential loss or damage however caused, provided that nothing in this Agreement will be interpreted so as to limit or exclude any liability which may not be excluded or limited by law. For example, we will not be liable to you for any of the following types of damages, whether in contract, tort (including negligence and strict liability) or otherwise (whether such loss or damage was foreseeable, known or otherwise): (i) loss of revenue; (ii) loss of actual or anticipated profits; (iii) loss of the use of money; (iv) loss of anticipated savings; or (v) loss or corruption of, or damage to, data, systems or programs. Because some states/jurisdictions do not allow exclusions as broad as those stated above or limitations of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitations may, in whole or in part, not apply to you. If you are dissatisfied with any portion of the Site or the Services, or with any clause of these terms, as your sole and exclusive remedy you may discontinue using the Site and the Services. Although we will not be liable for your losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account, you may be liable to others as well as to us if your account is used in violation of the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

Indemnity. You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Real Plans, its affiliates, officers, directors, employees and agents from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees) arising from: (i) your use of and access to the Sites and Services; (ii) your violation of any term of this Agreement; (iii) your violation of any third-party right, including without limitation any copyright, property, or privacy right; or (iv) any claim that your Content Submissions caused damage to a third party. This defense and indemnification obligation will survive this Agreement and your use of the Sites and Services.

13 Entire agreement

Other than as stated in this section or as explicitly agreed upon in writing between you and Real Plans, the Agreements constitute all the terms and conditions agreed upon between you and Real Plans and supersede any prior agreements in relation to the subject matter of these Agreements, whether written or oral.

Please note, however, that other aspects of your use of the Real Plans Service may be governed by additional agreements. That could include, for example, access to the Real Plans Service as a result of a gift card or free or discounted Trials. When you are presented with an offer for such aspects of your use, you will be presented with any related additional agreement, and you may have an opportunity to agree to additional terms. Some of those additional terms are listed on Real Plans’ website. To the extent that there is any irreconcilable conflict between any additional terms and these Terms, the additional terms shall prevail.

14 Severability and waiver

Unless as otherwise stated in the Agreements, should any provision of the Agreements be held invalid or unenforceable for any reason or to any extent, such invalidity or enforceability shall not in any manner affect or render invalid or unenforceable the remaining provisions of the Agreements, and the application of that provision shall be enforced to the extent permitted by law.

Any failure by Real Plans or any third party beneficiary to enforce the Agreements or any provision thereof shall not waive Real Plans’ or the applicable third party beneficiary’s right to do so.

15 Assignment

Real Plans may assign the Agreements or any part of them, and Real Plans may delegate any of its obligations under the Agreements. You may not assign the Agreements or any part of them, nor transfer or sub-license your rights under the Agreements, to any third party.

16 Indemnification

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to indemnify and hold Real Plans harmless from and against all damages, losses, and expenses of any kind (including reasonable attorney fees and costs) arising out of: (1) your breach of this Agreement; (2) any User Content; (3) any activity in which you engage on or through the Real Plans Service; and (4) your violation of any law or the rights of a third party.
