As such, you should always check the ingredients associated with any products that you receive from Map Meals to avoid potential allergic reactions. If you have or suspect that you have an allergic reaction or other adverse health event, promptly contact your health care provider.

Nutrient values are estimates only. Variations may occur due to product availability and food preparation. Nutrition may vary based on methods of preparation, origin and freshness of ingredients, among other factors.
We use Labelcalc software to develop nutrient value estimates. Labelcalc is a nationally recognized web-based online software for calculating the nutrition results. It is National Restaurant Association endorsed and a FDA recognized method for analysis. Labelcalc calculates nutrition results using a method called database nutrition analysis, one of two approved methods by the FDA for obtaining nutrition analysis. Database analysis allows a user to use a database of previous analyzed ingredients to calculate nutrition results. While we do our best to ensure accuracy, we make no representation or warranty regarding the information contained in the Labelcalc database, and there can be no assurance that any of the information contained therein has not been, or will not be changed or altered.

Governing Law and Jurisdiction
This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas, without regard to its conflict of laws rules.
Resolving Disputes — Arbitration
Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction BY livechat or email. IF Map meals' customer service department is unable to resolve a complaint you may have to your satisfaction (or if Map Meals 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 in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"). Unless you and Map Meals agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of your billing address. The AAA Rules are available online at adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. Map Meals 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 Map Meals 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 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. This transaction and the arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act 9 U.S.C. sec. 1-16 (FAA).
Waiver and Severability
No waiver by Map Meals of any of the terms and conditions set forth 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 Map Meals 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.
Map Meals may deliver notice to you under this Agreement by means of 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 Map Meals account. You may give notice to Map Meals at any time via electronic mail.
Telephone Calls and SMS Text Messages
Upon registration for an account, you will be asked to provide us with a telephone number at which we can reach you.

All calls to and from Map Meals may be monitored or recorded for quality and training purposes.
