Revised: February 2, 2024
PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THESE TERMS BEFORE USING THE SERVICES (DEFINED BELOW) OR PLACING AN ORDER.
Note that Section 15 of these Terms contains a mandatory arbitration provision that requires ButcherBox and you to use binding arbitration on an individual basis and limits the remedies available to ButcherBox and you in the event of certain disputes. By agreeing to these Terms, ButcherBox and you are giving up our rights to bring our disputes before a jury or as a member of class action.
By accessing or using the services provided by ButcherBox OpCo, LLC or our subsidiaries or other affiliates (collectively, “ButcherBox,” “we,” “us” or “our”) through our websites, blogs and/or mobile applications (collectively, the “Sites” and together with such services, the “Services”) you agree to be bound by these Terms and all of the Terms incorporated herein by reference. If you do not agree to these Terms, you may not access or use the Services.
If you are using the Services on behalf of any entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to accept these Terms on such entity’s behalf and that such entity agrees to be responsible to us if you or such entity violates these Terms.
ButcherBox reserves the right to change or modify these Terms at any time and in our sole discretion. If we make material changes to these Terms, we will provide notice of such changes, such as by sending you an email notification or providing notice through the Sites. By continuing to access or use the Services in any way after such notice has been provided, you confirm your acceptance of the revised Terms and all of the terms incorporated therein by reference. We encourage you to review the Terms frequently to ensure that you understand the terms and conditions that apply when you access or use the Services or Order. If you do not agree to the revised Terms, you are free to reject them and will not be able to access or use the Services.
The Services are not targeted toward or intended for use by anyone under the age of 18. By using the Services, you represent and warrant that you (a) are 18 years of age or older, (b) are a legal resident of the United States, (c) have not been previously suspended or removed from the Services, or engaged in any activity that could result in suspension or removal from the Services, (d) do not have more than one ButcherBox account, and (e) have full power and authority to enter into these Terms and in so doing will not violate any other agreement to which you are a party.

By creating a ButcherBox account, you also consent to receive electronic communications from ButcherBox (e.g., via email or by posting notices to the Sites).

You agree that any notices, agreements, disclosures, or other communications that we send to you electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements, including, but not limited to, that such communications be in writing. You should maintain copies of electronic communications from us by printing a paper copy or saving an electronic copy. We may also send you promotional communications via email, including, but not limited to, newsletters, special offers, surveys and other news and information we think will be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving these promotional emails at any time by following the unsubscribe instructions provided therein.
We make certain meat or other products made available for purchase through the Services (collectively, the “Product(s)”). ButcherBox may have the ability to offer individual Products for purchase by consumers.
PLANS. ButcherBox offers various subscription plans for the recurring delivery of our Products (each purchase of any such plan, a “Subscription”) and may offer recurring or one-time Products for sale. Our Product offerings and available Subscription plans are described on our website and mobile application, as applicable, at the time of purchase, and are subject to change at any time prior to purchase.
AUTOMATIC RENEWAL OF SUBSCRIPTION. WHEN YOU PURCHASE A MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION, YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT (A) BUTCHERBOX (OR OUR THIRD PARTY PAYMENT PROCESSOR(S)) IS AUTHORIZED TO CHARGE YOU ON A MONTHLY BASIS FOR THE PRICE OF YOUR CHOSEN SUBSCRIPTION (IN ADDITION TO ANY APPLICABLE TAXES AND OTHER CHARGES SET FORTH DURING THE PURCHASE PROCESS) FOR AS LONG AS YOUR SUBSCRIPTION CONTINUES, AND (B) YOUR SUBSCRIPTION IS CONTINUOUS UNTIL YOU CANCEL IT OR WE SUSPEND OR TERMINATE THE SUBSCRIPTION. THE MONTHLY RECURRING CHARGES FOR YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL BE SET FORTH DURING THE PURCHASE PROCESS ("PAYMENT"). THE AMOUNT YOU ARE CHARGED MAY VARY DEPENDING ON THE PREFERENCES YOU SELECT, AND WE MAY ADJUST SUCH RECURRING CHARGES FROM TIME TO TIME IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE TERMS.
SUBSTITUTIONS. All of our Products are subject to availability, and we reserve the right to impose quantity limits on any Order, to reject all or part of an Order, to discontinue offering certain Products and to substitute Products (including, but not limited to, specific ingredients, Products or entire Orders) without prior notice. We strive to provide you with high-quality Products, and given the perishable nature of certain Products and market conditions beyond our control, we may be required to make substitutions from time to time. If you are not satisfied with a substitution, please contact us at email@example.com or (855) 981-8568.
CANCELLATION POLICY. YOU MAY CANCEL YOUR MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION AT ANY TIME PRIOR TO THE NEXT DATE OF BILLING ("BILL DATE") BY ACCESSING YOUR ACCOUNT OR BY EMAILING firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (855) 981-8568. THE CANCELLATION REQUEST WILL BE PROCESSED FOR THE NEXT SCHEDULED BILL DATE. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL CHARGES (INCLUDING ANY APPLICABLE TAXES AND OTHER CHARGES) INCURRED WITH RESPECT TO ANY ORDER PROCESSED PRIOR TO THE CANCELLATION OF YOUR SUBSCRIPTION.
You may have the ability to purchase: (i) non-subscription boxes, (ii) gift cards, and (iii) recurring monthly Subscriptions for other people through the Services (collectively, “Gifts”). Gifts are not refundable or redeemable for cash, unless required by applicable law. Gifts must be redeemed for purchases through the Services in accordance with our then-current procedures for redemption, which may require the recipient to create their own account and agree to these Terms in order to redeem the Gift. GIFTS THAT ARE MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTIONS ARE SUBJECT TO THE AUTO RENEWAL TERMS AND THE CANCELLATION POLICY IN 4(B).
By providing a credit card or other payment method that we accept, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated payment method and that you authorize us (or our third party payment processor(s)) to charge your payment method for all charges you incur for the purchase of any Subscriptions or other Products (including any applicable taxes and other charges) (each such purchase, an “Order”). You are responsible for, and agree to pay, all such charges. If we or our third party payment processor(s) cannot obtain authorization for charges to your payment method or if any amounts you authorize us to charge to your payment method are reversed or charged back for any reason, we may, at our option, in addition to any other remedies: cancel or suspend any undelivered portion of your Orders, make second and/or subsequent attempts to charge your payment method, and/or use any other lawful means to collect payment on any outstanding amounts due to us. You will remain responsible to pay all applicable charges for all Orders and Gifts. You agree to provide and keep current a valid payment method. However, your failure to do so shall not constitute cancellation of any Order. In the event you want to change or update payment information associated with your ButcherBox account, you can do so at any time by logging into your account and editing your payment information, or by calling (855) 981-8568.
Note: ButcherBox uses the Shopify platform and uses Stripe to process payments. You may see “Shopify” or “Stripe” on your payment card statement.
All prices shown via the Services are in U.S. dollars. Any applicable taxes and other charges, if any, are additional. We reserve the right to change our Subscription and other Product offerings, and to adjust prices as we may determine in our sole discretion, at any time and without notice; provided, however, that if we change the amounts or other charges associated with your then-current Subscription(s), we will provide advance notice of such changes via one of the means described in Section 3. We will not, however, be able to notify you of changes in any applicable taxes prior to such changes becoming effective. The shipment of Products to you after our delivery of such notice will confirm your acceptance of such changes, unless you cancel your Subscription(s) in accordance with the cancellation policy set forth in Section 4(B).
We will collect applicable sales tax on Products shipped to the states for which we determine we have a duty to collect sales tax. If an item is subject to sales tax, you agree that the amount of taxes shown at checkout may be adjusted. Several factors may cause this, such as variances between processor programs and changes in tax rates.
You agree to pay any shipping and handling charges shown at the time you make a purchase. We reserve the right to increase, decrease, add or eliminate shipping and handling charges from time to time, but we will provide notice of the charges applicable to you before you make your purchase. Generally, shipping is handled by a third party courier. Actual delivery dates may vary from your online account or checkout. You agree that you will not obtain, or direct shipment of, a Product for export. All Products purchased from us are made pursuant to a shipment contract.
You are responsible for inspecting all Products you receive from us for any damage or other issues upon delivery. In addition, you are solely responsible for determining the freshness of the Products you receive. You should always inspect your delivery to confirm that the Products arrive refrigerator cold, meaning below 40° F as measured with a food thermometer. In the unlikely event that such temperature zone is above 40°F, or you have any other reason to believe that any other Product in your delivery is not suitable for consumption, contact us at email@example.com (attaching photos of the item(s)) or call (855) 981-8568 and discard the item(s). To maintain the quality and integrity of the Products, we recommend that you immediately refrigerate all perishable Products upon delivery and follow the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (“USDA”) instructions on refrigeration and food safety, which can be found here. From the time of delivery, the condition and consumption of the Products are solely at your risk, and you are solely responsible for the proper and safe washing, handling, preparation, storage, cooking, use and consumption of the Products following delivery. We recommend that you follow the USDA’s instructions on safe food handling, which can be found here. We also recommend that all cooking instructions be followed and that you use a food thermometer to ensure that all meat, poultry, seafood and other applicable items are cooked to the USDA’s recommended internal temperatures, which can be found here. 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 U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s recommendations on food consumption for at-risk groups, which can be found here.
If you are not at home when your delivery arrives, the courier will generally leave the package for you at your door. Our Products are frozen and individually packaged and labeled, the Products are placed inside boxes that feature inbuilt insulation specially designed to keep meat within the optimal temperature range, with dry ice if necessary. The amount of dry ice is calculated based on your geographic location/guaranteed courier delivery time. When retrieved on the delivery date, dry ice may be completely evaporated. Your Order will typically remain cold and fresh for several hours, but depending on the season and temperature in your geographic area at the time of delivery, advance planning by you should be made for proper storage of your Products prior to consumption. In certain areas, you may be able to provide additional delivery instructions when setting up your ButcherBox account, such as requesting that your delivery be left with a doorman or neighbor. Any individual at the delivery address who accepts a delivery from us is presumed to be authorized to receive such delivery. In cases in which you have designated an alternative receiver, such person shall accept the delivery under all of the same terms and conditions that would apply had you accepted the delivery yourself. In the case of inclement weather or other events beyond our control that interfere with our ability to deliver your Order, we will attempt to deliver your Order as soon as reasonably possible. In the event of a courier delay, please inspect the contents carefully and email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (855) 981-8568 immediately with any concerns (attaching photos for review). In some cases, delivery may occur prior to the scheduled delivery date. In the event that timely delivery of your Products is not feasible, we will cancel your delivery for the period so affected and issue you a credit or refund of the purchase price for that delivery.
You are not permitted to resell or otherwise use the Products for commercial purposes.
We are shipping perishable Product(s) and therefore are not able to accept returns. Unlike items that have a longer shelf life, items that are perishable cannot be restocked or resold.
If you are not completely satisfied with your ButcherBox products, please contact email@example.com or call (855) 981-8568. We will happily review you your Order and any reported issues and offer a replacement of the Product in question, credit towards your next box, or a partial/full refund. Since we are not able to physically access the Product, we may ask that you provide photos of the Product label and damage reported.
Due to the perishable nature of our Products, we cannot guarantee the condition of the delivery if the address is incorrectly entered, if a change of address isn’t updated prior to the Bill Date, if an address is altered while in transit, or if you are unable to retrieve the Order on the guaranteed delivery date and did not notify us prior to the Order Bill Date.
When placing your Order, please enter your shipping address carefully to ensure accuracy and review your receipt/account for any errors. If you enter the shipping address incorrectly or move please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (855) 981-8568 immediately for correction or correct it via your account.
If your Order is returned to us because of an incorrect address provided or refusal of delivery when shipped according to our Terms, we must dispose of the contents and you will not be refunded. In the event an Order is delivered late due to an incorrect address or if you are unable to retrieve on the delivery date without prior notification and thawing/damage occurs, you will not be refunded.
You are liable for any orders placed or charges that incur prior to the cancellation request. If the request for cancellation is made after your Order Bill Date, the request will be processed for the next scheduled Bill Date.
Courier Damaged Products. While we would love to see every delivery arrive on time and without issue, delays or damage can occur once the package is in transit via the courier due to events that are out of our control (such as inclement weather, accidents, etc). In the event of damage caused by improper handling or late delivery, we are happy to file a claim and replace the shipment. We ask that you please email email@example.com or call (855) 981-8568 within seven (7) days of receipt, provide a description of the damage, and a photo(s) of the Order in the state it was received. Claim filing is time sensitive and photos are required in order to show proof of damage. Filing a claim does not guarantee a refund. ButcherBox will review your claim and determine accuracy in its sole discretion.
Damaged Products (not courier related). In the event of damage, we ask that you please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (855) 981-8568 within seven (7) days of receipt, provide a description of the damage, and a photo(s) of the Order in the state it was received. We will happily review you your Order and any reported issues and offer an appropriate resolution which may include replacement of the Product in question, credit towards your next box, or a partial/full refund. Since we aren’t able to physically access the Product, we may ask that you provide photos of the Product label and damage reported.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES BUTCHERBOX AND YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH BUTCHERBOX AND YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF UNDER THESE TERMS. IN PARTICULAR, BUTCHERBOX AND YOU AGREE TO GIVE UP OUR RIGHTS TO BRING CERTAIN DISPUTES BEFORE A JURY OR RESOLVE CERTAIN CLAIMS IN COURT OR AS A MEMBER OF A CLASS PROCEEDING.
Binding Arbitration. For any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or the Services, Content, or Products, except for any disputes, claims, suits, actions, causes of action, demands or proceedings arising out of or related to a violation of Section 12 or disputes in which either party seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court or seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, including, without limitation, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets or patents (each, a “Dispute”), to the extent permitted by applicable law, you and ButcherBox agree (a) to waive your and ButcherBox’s respective rights to have any and all Disputes resolved in a court, and (b) to waive your and ButcherBox’s respective rights to a jury trial. Instead, you and ButcherBox agree to arbitrate Disputes through binding arbitration. Arbitration is the referral of a Dispute to one or more persons charged with reviewing the Dispute and making a final and binding determination to resolve it instead of having the Dispute decided by a judge or jury in court.
No Class Arbitrations, Class Actions or Representative Actions. To the extent permitted by applicable law, you and ButcherBox agree that any Dispute is personal to you and ButcherBox and that any Dispute will be resolved solely through individual arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding. To the extent permitted by applicable law, you and ButcherBox agree that there will be no class arbitration or arbitration in which an individual attempts to resolve a Dispute as a representative of another individual or group of individuals.
Federal Arbitration Act. You and ButcherBox agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 15 shall be both substantively and procedurally governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.
Notice; Informal Dispute Resolution. You and ButcherBox agree that each party will notify the other party in writing of any Dispute or any small claims dispute within thirty (30) days of the date it arises, so that the parties can attempt in good faith to resolve the Dispute or small claims dispute informally. Notice to ButcherBox shall be sent by certified mail or courier to ButcherBox OpCo, LLC Attn: Legal Notices, 311 Arsenal Street, Watertown, MA 02472. Your notice must include (a) your name, postal address, telephone number, the email address you use or used for your ButcherBox account and, if different, an email address at which you can be contacted, (b) a description in reasonable detail of the nature or basis of the Dispute or small claims dispute, and (c) the specific relief that you are seeking. Our notice to you will be sent to the address we have on file for you, and will include (x) our name, postal address, telephone number and an email address at which we can be contacted with respect to the Dispute or small claims dispute, (y) a description in reasonable detail of the nature or basis of the Dispute or small claims dispute, and (z) the specific relief that we are seeking. If you and ButcherBox cannot agree how to resolve the Dispute or small claims dispute within thirty (30) days after the date notice is received by the applicable party, then either you or ButcherBox may, as appropriate and in accordance with this Section 15, commence an arbitration proceeding or, to the extent specifically provided for in Section 15 ("Binding Arbitration" paragraph above), file a claim in court.
Process. You and ButcherBox agree that any Dispute or small claims dispute must be commenced or filed by you or ButcherBox within one (1) year of the date the Dispute or small claims dispute arose, otherwise the underlying claim is permanently barred (which means that you and ButcherBox will no longer have the right to assert such claim regarding the Dispute or small claims dispute). You and ButcherBox agree that (a) the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside, (b) arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the rules of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”), which are explained in more detail in Section 15 below and hereby incorporated by reference, and (c) that the state or federal courts of the State of Massachusetts and the United States, respectively, sitting in the State of Massachusetts, County of Middlesex, City of Cambridge, have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award. You may also litigate a small claims dispute in the small claims court located in the county of your billing address if the small claims dispute meets the requirements to be heard in that small claims court.
Authority of Arbitrator.As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the JAMS rules referenced above, the arbitrator will have (a) the exclusive authority and jurisdiction to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding a Dispute, including the determination of the scope of this arbitration agreement and whether a Dispute is arbitrable, and (b) the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.
Rules of JAMS. The arbitration will be administered by JAMS in accordance with the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules (the “JAMS Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. (The JAMS Rules are available at https://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/#Rule-16-1.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section. To the extent there are any conflicts between the JAMS Rules and these Terms, the Terms will control.
Severability. If any term, clause or provision of this Section 15 is held invalid or unenforceable, it will be so held to the minimum extent required by law, and all other terms, clauses and provisions of this Section 15 will remain valid and enforceable. Further, the waivers set forth in this Section 15 are severable from the other provisions of these Terms and will remain valid and enforceable, except as prohibited by applicable law.
Opt-Out Right. You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within thirty (30) days of the date you first accepted the Terms of this Section 15 by writing to: ButcherBox OpCo, LLC Attn: General Counsel, 311 Arsenal Street, Watertown, MA 02472. In order to be effective, the opt out notice must include your full name and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve Disputes in accordance with Section 16.
These Terms, your access to and use of the Services, and your Order, receipt and use of the Products shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, without regard to conflict-of-law rules or principles (whether of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any Dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court pursuant to Section 15 shall be resolved in the state or federal courts of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the United States, respectively, sitting in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, County of Middlesex, City of Cambridge.
Notwithstanding anything contained in these Terms, we reserve the right, without notice and in our sole discretion, to terminate your right to access or use the Services and to order, receive and use the Products, at any time and for any or no reason, and you acknowledge and agree that we shall have no liability or obligation to you in such event and that you will not be entitled to a refund of any amounts that you have already paid to us, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.
If any term, clause or provision of these Terms is deemed invalid or unenforceable, then that term, clause or provision will be severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity or enforceability of any remaining part of that term, clause or provision, or any other term, clause or provision of these Terms.
The following sections will survive the expiration or termination of these Terms and the termination of your ButcherBox account: all defined terms and Sections 1; 4-16; and 18-20.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and ButcherBox relating to your access to and use of the Services and your Order, receipt and use of Products. These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you without the prior written consent of ButcherBox. No waiver of any provision of these Terms will constitute a waiver of such provision in any prior, concurrent or subsequent circumstance, and ButcherBox’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Except as otherwise provided herein, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of the parties and are not intended to confer third party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity.
