My FEAST & Me is
a related blog site owned and managed by FEAST Brands, LLC. The website
www.feast-brands.com and www.feast-brands.com respectively
(collectively, the “Sites” and individually, the “Site”). Both Sites and Our
related social media contain informational material primarily related to the
art of food and culinary entrepreneurship (collectively, the “Content").
Your access to the Sites’
Content, related social media, and any associated stores or interactive
features (collectively, the "Services") is subject to Our six (6)
Disclaimers & Disclosures, Copyright & Usage, and Accessibility.
IN A NUTSHELL, BY
BROWSING, ACCESSING, REGISTERING FOR, FOLLOWING, DOWNLOADING INFORMATION OR
PURCHASING MERCHANDISE FROM, OR OTHERWISE INTERACTING WITH ANY OF OUR SITES OR
RELATED SOCIAL MEDIA, YOU AGREE TO THE SIX (6) COMPANY OPERATING POLICIES
PRESENTED HEREIN (COLLECTIVELY, THE "TERMS").
You represent that you are
at least 18 years old and are able to enter into these Terms.
If you discover you are
not particularly enamored with Our Terms, you should not use the Sites or
related social media in any way.
FEAST Brands, LLC
Clients who enter into a formal consulting agreement with FEAST Brands, LLC (yea!
let's start a food business!) have unique terms and conditions that may
contradict these Terms. For example, a formal consulting agreement may permit
the use of certain recipes or copyrighted material owned by Us. If a provision
of a formal consulting agreement is found to conflict with any of these Terms,
the terms in the formal consulting agreement will apply.
We may change or amend any of these Terms at any time without formal
promulgation (what a great word!). You'll be able to tell if We've changed or
amended anything by the presence of a new effective date at the beginning of
any affected Section. Any subsequent use of the Sites or Services by you means
you've accepted these changes or amendments. We also may modify or discontinue,
temporarily or permanently, the Sites and any related social media, or any
features or portions thereof, without formal promulgation (used it again!).
These Terms are for the benefit of, and will only be enforceable by you and Us.
No besties, no BFFs can get involved. Nothing here is intended to involved a
third party in any way.
No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment relationship is created as
a result of these Terms, nor do you have any authority to bind Us in any
respect whatsoever. It is what it is.
These Terms constitute the
entire agreement between you and Us regarding the use of Our Sites and related
social media. Just because we decline to exercise or enforce a particular Term
now does not constitute a waiver because the next time we might.
These Terms are not
assignable, transferable, or sublicensable by you, except with Our written
consent. You can't pass these off on someone else.
Major and minor headings used
to separate the Terms herein do not have any substantive meaning or
interpretive value. They are simply here to make a very dry technical document
easier to read.
Any claim relating to FEAST Brands, LLC’s Sites or related social media must be
governed by the laws of the State of Maryland without regard to its conflict of
law provisions. All interactions between Us regarding any disputes or
controversies will be here in the Old Line State.
If the Parties are unable to resolve any dispute or controversy through
informal negotiations arising out of or relating to any interpretation,
construction, performance, termination or breach of these Terms, the dispute or
controversy will be settled by final and binding arbitration by a single
arbitrator to be held in Westminster, Maryland, in accordance with the American
Arbitration Association national rules for resolution of employment disputes
then in effect, except as provided herein. The arbitrator selected shall have
the authority to grant any party all remedies otherwise available by law,
including injunctions, but shall not have the power to grant any remedy that
would not be available in a state or federal court. The arbitrator shall have
the authority to hear and rule on dispositive motions (such as motions for
summary adjudication or summary judgment). The arbitrator shall have the powers
granted by Maryland law and the rules of the American Arbitration Association
which conducts the arbitration, except as modified or limited herein.
How To Contact Us
If any individual provision of these Terms is held by an arbitrator or court of
competent jurisdiction to be void, invalid, or otherwise unenforceable, that
provision must be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so as
not to affect the remaining provisions that must otherwise remain in full force
and effect and enforceable. Basically, one stale ingredient can't bring down
the whole bouillabaisse.

you may contact Us at info(at)feast-brands.com and we'll reply timely

You are fully responsible for any actions you take and any consequences that
may occur as a result of any Content you read or consume on the Sites and any
related social media managed by Us. The Sites and related social media may
provide limited and approximate nutritional Content or other information or
data through blog posts, sample product descriptions, or otherwise for
convenience and as a courtesy only. Nutritional data is gathered primarily from
the USDA Food Composition Database by way of MasterCook culinary software or
other online calculators.
Please note nutritional
data can vary for any particular recipe based on factors such as precision of
measurements, brands, ingredient freshness, similar-but-not-same ingredient,
end-use of sauces, marinades, dressings, and reductions, or the source of the
data. We obviously strive to keep all Content as accurate as possible but make
no warranties regarding its accuracy.
Also, no statements
contained in Our Content have been evaluated by the Food and Drug
Administration. Nothing about the Content is intended to cure, prevent,
diagnose, or treat any disease. You should consult your personal healthcare
provider regarding any health-related decisions including altering your diet in
any way. We must not be liable for adverse reactions or any other outcomes
resulting from following the information found in the Content. Any action(s)
you take based on the Content is strictly at your own risk. We are not liable
for any losses or damages related to actions or failure to act related to the
Content on the Sites and related social media.
No employee of Ours is professionally trained in medicine or as a professional
dietitian or nutritionist. Any culinary recommendations made by Us about food
preparation or otherwise are made based on our research or personal experience,
and are most likely applicable, but must not be construed as medical, dietary,
or nutritional advice.
Note: We occasionally
consult with professional dietitians and nutritionists to offer the best
Content we can. We can readily refer you to any of them, however, the
relationship must be strictly between you and the dietitian or nutritionist,
who will warrant their own credentials and experience independently of Us. We
must not under any circumstances play any role in that relationship beyond the referral.
It is your sole responsibility to assess the appropriateness of the dietitian’s
or nutritionist’s advice.
No employee of Ours is
trained as a professional lawyer or government regulator. Any business
recommendations made by Us about business formation, government regulations,
human resources matters, or otherwise are made based on our research or
personal experience, and are most likely applicable, but must not be construed
as legal or regulatory advice.
Case Studies &
We may present case studies and testimonials about other people’s experiences
with Our Sites and related social media, recipes, products, and Services for
example only. The testimonials, examples, and photos used are of actual users,
clients, or customers. No TV doctors used.
Testimonials and case
studies are not intended to represent or guarantee that one individual’s
current or future efforts will achieve the same or even similar results as any
other individual's. Rather, they represent what is possible for illustrative purposes
We have not reviewed the entirety of any external website links on Our Sites
and related social media, and are not responsible for the contents of any such
linked websites. The inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by Us.
Use of any such linked website is at the user’s own risk.

CONDITIONS: (A) OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR USE,
RESULTS, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT; AND (B) CREATED BY TRADE USAGE, COURSE OF
DEALING OR COURSE OF PERFORMANCE.
In no event shall We or
our suppliers be liable for any damages (including, without limitation, damages
for loss of data or profit, or due to business interruption,) arising out of
the use or inability to use the Content on the Sites and related social media,
even if We have been notified of the possibility of such damage. Because some
jurisdictions do not allow limitations on implied warranties, or limitations of
liability for consequential or incidental damages, these limitations may not
apply to you.
We do not represent or
warrant that the Sites and related social media or our proxy servers are free
of viruses or other harmful components.
We may accept advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions, and other forms of
compensation from advertisers. Compensation may come from sponsored posts, or
advertisements generated by third-party ad networks.
Our Sites and related
social media may also contain affiliate links, meaning We receive commissions
for purchases made through those links, at no cost to you. Please understand
that we have experience with all of these companies and recommend them because
they are helpful and useful, not because of the small commissions we make if
you decide to buy something from them. These affiliate relationships and links
are clearly identified where applicable.
We may also receive
compensation or free product to provide our expert opinion on related products,
services, or other topics. Any opinions expressed on the Site and related
social media are Ours unless clearly indicated otherwise, and are intended to
provide information We think you would find helpful. If you feel it necessary,
verify Our representations with the manufacturer, provider, or appropriate
Note: In more than ten
years as an executive chef, commercial kitchen manager, and now a partner in a
culinary consulting business, I have seen a lot. When I say I only promote
products and services I myself have used and stand by, I mean it. We are a
business and do require revenue to exist, however, I am personally involved
with all decisions regarding affiliates and sponsors. Compensation does not
have a place in influencing the Content I create for the Site.
Revisions and Errors
Information provided on the Sites is subject to change. The Content on the
Sites could include technical, typographical, or photographic errors. Try as we
may to get it right every time, We do not warrant that any of the Content on
the Sites and related social media, regardless of its source, is accurate,
complete, reliable, current, or error-free. We do not represent or warrant that
the Sites and related social media are accurate, complete, reliable, current,
or error-free and assume no responsibility for such.
We may make changes to the
Content on the Sites and related social media at any time without notice,
however, we are not obligated to update any of the Content.
COPYRIGHT & USAGE

represents years of effort, is that We want the My FEAST & Me Site to be
the exclusive source for it. With that in mind, We must politely insist users
place a mandatory and conspicuous attribution link back to the original source

We are committed to
ensuring the widest possible audience has complete access to our two
www.feast-brands.com and www.myfeastandme.com. This is an
ongoing process that strives to stay abreast of the most currently accepted
accessibility standards and best practices. It will evolve and improve over
time as new technologies become available.
Specifically, we look to
the four principles of the
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines for input
on design and website functionality. In most instances, we can apply most or
all to design and content decisions. The four principles we seek to integrate
into Our Sites are:
PERCEPTION Present information in ways users can perceive,
e.g., able to adjust font size or read alt text for images.
OPERABILITY Navigation and other interfaces are operable in ways
users can operate them, e.g., perform some interactions using keyboard or voice
UNDERSTANDABILITY Navigation is consistent and understandable,
e.g., direction is clear and controls are easy to use.
ROBUSTNESS A wide range of assistive technologies can absorb robust
content, e.g., content that evolves alongside new devices and tools.
This policy applies only
to our two websites. Unfortunately, we cannot vouch for any third-party
