Nutrition, Dietary Restrictions, and Allergy Information
Blog posts and other Content on the Site or in the App may contain recipes, meal recommendations, dietary advice (collectively, the “Dietary Advice”) and the food products delivered in connection with the Nkwa Dua Service (collectively, the “Dietary Options”) will contain various ingredients. You should always consult with your physician or other healthcare professional before adopting any Dietary Advice or partaking in any Dietary Options, whether offered by and through the Nkwa Dua Offerings or otherwise. The Dietary Advice and/or Dietary Options may include ingredients that you are allergic to. You should always check the ingredients associated with any Dietary Advice and Dietary Options to avoid potential allergic reactions. If you have or suspect that you have an allergic reaction or other adverse health events, promptly contact your health care provider.
By engaging with the offerings you are agreeing that consulted with your health care provider as advised. Please note that the terms “health,” healthy,” “healthful,” are comparative terms. These terms are comparatives of “junk foods” with no nutritional value and terms are not absolute declarative nutritional statements. The ingredient descriptions and associated health properties are for entertainment purposes only. For detailed nutritional information and to understand how any meals or their composite ingredients may impact your health please seek the advice of a nutritionist or your health care provider. Nkwa Dua will not be responsible for any loss or damage resulting from your reliance on nutritional information, nor for ensuring that whatever foods you purchase or consume are in accordance with your respective dietary needs, restrictions or preferences. Please note that excluding categories from your profile does not guarantee that your meals will exclude certain food product ingredients that may contain those products. As such, you should always check the ingredients associated with any products that you receive from Nkwa Dua to avoid potential allergic reactions. If you have or suspect that you have an allergic reaction or another adverse health event, promptly contact emergency services or your health care provider. If you have food allergies or sensitivities, we recommend not using any of the food offerings as Nkwa Dua as Nkwa Dua does not guarantee complete segregation of any ingredients on the menu.
Food Substitution Policy
Although Nkwa Dua takes every reasonable measure to have sufficient inventory to fill your order, the availability of Dietary Offerings may change without notice. Nkwa Dua is not responsible for the unavailability of products due to popular demand, whether discontinued or still in production.
In the completion of orders, Nkwa Dua reserves the right to substitute a similar product. Substituted food items may contain different ingredients and allergens than those in items originally ordered. Before consumption, please be sure to carefully check all individual product packages for the most updated information regarding ingredients and nutritional content for any/all of Nkwa Dua’s food products, including new and improved items, if you have any food allergies or if you are otherwise concerned about any particular ingredients.
Please Note: Nkwa Dua’s food items may contain or may have been manufactured in a facility that also processes: dairy, wheat, gluten, eggs, fish, shellfish, soy, and tree nuts.
Food Safety Considerations
You are responsible for the safe handling of all Dietary Options made available through Nkwa Dua’s Sites and Platforms upon delivery. As per this agreement you warrant that you will immediately inspect all Dietary Options you receive from us for any damage or other issues, and to determine freshness upon delivery. Photos of the food should be taken and sent within 24 hours. of the arrival of your receipt of the delivery. Nkwa Dua Offerings are kept in a suitable environment before transit, but cannot guarantee handling during delivery. Therefore, upon receiving your Nkwa Dua order, you should always promptly inspect your delivery to confirm that the meal ingredients arrive in an appropriate condition, and its contents are not otherwise visibly damaged.
To maintain the quality and safety of the Dietary Options, we recommend that you immediately refrigerate all perishable Dietary Options upon delivery We also recommend that you wash all fresh produce under running water before using. 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 recommendations on food consumption for at-risk groups.
While Nkwa Dua takes precautions to reduce the risk of cross-contamination between ingredients and food products, cross-contamination may unintentionally occur during production and transit which may cause meals or other Dietary Options offered in connection with the Nkwa Dua service to contain some or all of those allergens. Soy, gluten, and wheat are allergens that are commonly found in many ingredients, especially some of the sauces that may be used in the Nkwa Dua recipes. If you suspect that you have an allergic reaction or another adverse health event, immediately contact your health care provider. In addition, due to the variable nature of ingredient availability, nutritional information provided by Nkwa Dua may differ from the nutritional information published.
Nkwa Dua is a monthly subscription service. You may modify your subscription (e.g., the number of meals per week or the number of servings), pause your subscription, skip a week, change your payment method or cancel your account at any time online (while logged into your account) or by sending a request by email to email@example.com. Such requests will not affect charges submitted before Nkwa Dua could reasonably act on such requests. If you pause your subscription, 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. However, you will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period. Your monthly subscription is considered final after you place your first order for the month. Your weekly order is considered final by noon GMT on Tuesday before the following week’s delivery (the “Deadline”), and therefore you must pause, skip or cancel before the Deadline to not be charged for such order. You can resume or re-subscribe at any time after you pause your subscription or cancel your account, respectively, but we reserve the right not to permit re-subscription where we have previously elected to terminate your subscription.

After placing your first order through our standard order form on this Website, you will see in your online account profile how much you were charged for such order. You will be charged for subsequent orders at the Deadline for each such order, at which time each such order will be considered final. If you elect to skip a week or weeks, that does not permanently pause or cancel your subscription. If you do not return to the Website or email firstname.lastname@example.org to skip additional weeks or take additional action, you will receive and be billed for the month that you have not skipped by the 25th of the previous month.
Your order will cover only the Offerings whose dispatch we have confirmed in your account or via email notification. We will not be obligated to supply any other Dietary Options that may have been part of your order unless the dispatch of such Dietary Options has been confirmed in a separate confirmation.

Resolving Disputes — Arbitration
Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction BY calling our customer service department with contact information as shown on the Contact Us page of NkwaDua.com. If Nkwa Dua’s customer service department is unable to resolve a complaint you may have to your satisfaction (or if Nkwa Dua has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after attempting to do so informally), we each agree to resolve those disputes through binding arbitration or small-claims court instead of in courts of general jurisdiction.
All disputes or claims that arise under or related to this Agreement (whether in contract, tort or otherwise, whether past, pre-existing, or future, and including statutory, consumer protection, common law, intentional tort, injunctive, and equitable claims) will be resolved either in small claims court or by individual arbitration. Unless you and Nkwa Dua agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the region of the Nkwa Dua headquarters. Nkwa Dua agrees that it will pay a consumer’s filing fee FOR the arbitration.
You agree to arbitration on an individual basis. In any dispute, NEITHER CUSTOMER NOR Nkwa Dua SHALL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS BY OR AGAINST OTHER CUSTOMERS, OR ARBITRATE OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLAIMS AS A REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS MEMBER, OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced (but in no case shall there be a class arbitration).
The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law. Any award of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
You may elect to opt-out (exclude yourself) from the final, binding arbitration procedure and the class action waiver specified in these Terms and Conditions by doing the following. Within 15 days of creating your Nkwa Dua account, you must send a letter to Nkwa Dua, Attn: Legal Department an email to firstname.lastname@example.org including; (1) your name, (2) your account member name, (3) your mailing address, and (4) your request to be excluded from the final, binding arbitration procedure and class action waiver specified in these Terms and Conditions. All other Terms and Conditions shall continue to apply to you and your account, including the requirement to participate in pre-dispute mediation.
Termination of Service
You agree that Nkwa Dua may, without prior notice, immediately terminate, limit your access to, or suspend your account based on any of the following: (a) breach or violation of these Terms and Conditions; (b) upon request by law enforcement; (c) unforeseeable technical or security issues or problems; (d) extended periods of inactivity; or (e) fraudulent, deceptive, or illegal activity, or other activity which Nkwa Dua believes is harmful to this Website or its business interests. You agree that termination, limitation of access, and/or suspension will be made in Nkwa Dua’s sole discretion and that Nkwa Dua shall not be liable to you or any third party for the termination, limitation of access, and/or suspension of your account.
Upon termination, you will no longer have a right to access your account or your User Content. We will not have any obligation to assist you in migrating your data or your User Content and we may not keep any back up of any of your User Content. We will not be responsible for deleting your User Content.
No waiver by Nkwa Dua of any of the terms and conditions outlined in this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of Nkwa Dua to assert a right or provision under these Terms and Conditions shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of this Agreement will continue in full force and effect.
Nkwa Dua may deliver notice to you under this Agreement using electronic mail, a general notice on the site, or by written communication delivered by first class U.S. mail to your address on record in your Nkwa Dua account.
