See Termination of Account for instructions on how to terminate your account. Except for changes made by us as described here, no other amendment or modification of these Terms shall be effective unless set forth in a written agreement expressly amending these Terms and bearing a written signature by you and us.

Rwanda Bean does not cover return shipping for refunds. Rwanda Bean terms, eligibility, and timing are subject to change without notice.
Rwanda Bean uses reasonable efforts to display the products listed for sale via the Service as accurately as possible. However, Rwanda Bean does not warrant those product descriptions or other content are accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free, as we rely upon our vendor partners to provide information regarding their products. If a product offered by Trade is not as described, please contact us at your earliest opportunity at SUPPORT@RWANDABEAN.COM and we will endeavor to find an acceptable solution. However, your sole remedy, if we cannot find a solution, is to return the product in accordance with our Terms.
All offered products on the Rwanda Bean website are subject to availability. Rwanda Bean reserves the right to change the items offered via the Service at any time and without notice. The Service may contain information about the availability of products at the time of ordering, but the quantity of inventory actually available can change significantly and without notice. If a product is not available for shipping promptly after you place your order, you will be notified, and you may choose to order a different item that is then-currently available, to wait until the product is available (if it will be available again in a timely manner) or to cancel your order. Rwanda Bean is not liable if products are not in stock or otherwise not available.
Third-Party Product Warranties
Certain products offered by the Service may include a warranty from the manufacturer of such product, in which event you may be entitled to receive protection against any defect or other covered issue with such product, from such manufacturer. You may contact us at SUPPORT@RWANDABEAN.COM for information regarding the third-party manufacturer, and Rwanda Bean will use reasonable efforts to assist you; however, Rwanda Bean has no liability with respect to any product warranty provided by a third party, and you must seek any recovery or other benefit covered by such a third party warranty directly from such third party.
Gift Cards and Promotions
Rwanda Bean may from time to time offer certain Gift Cards or promotional events or opportunities which are subject to our Terms and may also be subject to specific rules or terms relating to the particular Gift Card or promotion.

If you provide us with your mobile phone number, you must have a text messaging-enabled mobile device with a text messaging plan in order to receive text messages from us. This service is without charge from Rwanda Bean but charges from your carrier for text, data or other usages may apply and you are responsible for all such charges. If you enroll to receive texts from us, you acknowledge and agree to be bound by the following terms:
You represent and warrant to us that you are authorized: (i) you are the owner of the mobile phone number you designate in Rwanda Bean's system to receive communications from Rwanda Bean via Short Message Service or text (" Texts"), and (ii) you are solely responsible for any mobile message or data charges that may be incurred by communicating with us via Texts. You may register to receive Texts by entering and submitting your phone number in the provided submission form available on our website or purchases in our retail stores via Square, INC. By entering your phone number and/or by confirming your desire to receive Texts from us, you consent to these terms and to receive text message communications from Rwanda Bean as described herein. A text message will be delivered to the mobile number you provided confirming your enrollment once you have submitted your phone number. You are responsible for managing the types of texts (whether SMS or MMS) you receive.
By subscribing to receive Texts, you expressly consent and agree to accept and receive information regarding products you order. With your consent, we may also use automated or non-automated technology to send you additional promotional communications via text message to the cellular/mobile telephone number that you provide to us. You understand that you are not required to receive promotional text messages as a condition of purchasing goods or services from Rwanda Bean. The information in any message may be subject to certain time lags and/or delays.
We may send you an initial message confirming that we have received your opt-in. After that, the number of Texts you receive will vary depending upon how you use our Service and whether you take steps to generate additional Texts from us (such as by sending a HELP request).
By agreeing to receive Texts, you also consent to the use of an electronic record to document your agreement. You may withdraw your consent to the use of the electronic record by emailing us at SUPPORT@RWANDABEAN.COM with "Revoke Electronic Consent" in the subject line.
To view and retain a copy of this disclosure or any information regarding your election to receive Texts, you will need (i) a device (such as a computer or mobile phone) with a web browser and Internet access and (ii) either a printer or storage space on such device. For a free paper copy, or to update our records of your contact information, email us at SUPPORT@RWANDABEAN.COM with contact information and the address for delivery.
In order to cease receiving Texts, you may unsubscribe by replying STOP, QUIT, CANCEL, UNSUBSCRIBE, and/or END to any text message you receive or contacting Trade Customer Service by email at SUPPORT@RWANDABEAN.COM. You consent that following such a request to unsubscribe, you may receive one (1) final message from Trade confirming that you have been inactivated in our system. Please allow up to three (3) business days to process your request. Following such confirmation messages, no additional text messages will be sent to you unless you re-activate your subscription to receive messages.
By subscribing to receive Texts, you approve any message, voice, and data charges from your mobile carrier. Check your carrier’s plan for details. You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible and liable for obtaining, maintaining, and paying all charges related to your mobile device(s).
Rwanda Bean is not responsible for incomplete, lost, late, or misdirected messages, including (but not limited to) undelivered messages resulting from any form of filtering by your mobile carrier or service provider or otherwise.
You acknowledge and agree that the Texts may be provided in some cases through automatic telephone dialing technology, an artificial voice, or a pre-recorded voice. By subscribing to receive Texts, you expressly consent to receive the Texts through automatic dialing technology, artificial and pre-recorded voice to the telephone or cell phone number you have provided to us.
Rwanda Bean reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel or suspend any or all of the Texts, in whole or in part, for any reason, with or without notice to you.
Some of the Paid Services, such as Coffee Subscriptions, Bulk Subscriptions, and Gift Subscriptions (“Subscription”) may consist of an initial period for which there is a one-time charge, followed by recurring period charges as agreed by you.
Automatic Renewal Terms
By ordering a Subscription, you agree to pay the applicable price and any other recurring charges upon each auto-renewal date, until you terminate your Subscription in accordance with the Services.
Subscriptions may not be canceled or modified after an upcoming shipment has been processed, in accordance with individual Supplier roasting and shipping schedules, up to 7 days prior to customer order date.
Subscription cancellations and modifications will be applied to the next date for which a customer’s order has not already been processed.
IF YOU WISH TO CANCEL OR MODIFY AUTOMATIC RENEWAL, OR OTHERWISE MODIFY YOUR SUBSCRIPTION, YOU CAN DO SO UP TO 7 DAYS BEFORE YOUR ORDER RENEWS OF BY EMAILING US AT DANIELLE@RWANDABEAN.COM, CALLING US AT 1 (207) 536-1312 DURING NORMAL BUSINESS HOURS. SOME SUBSCRIPTION MODIFICATIONS, NOT INCLUDING CANCELLATION, MAY BE AVAILABLE THROUGH YOUR ACCOUNT.
Based on the Paid Services you select, you may receive recurring shipments of a single type of coffee (Auto-Reorder) or you may receive a rotating selection of coffees from among the current and future range of Rwanda Bean's coffee product catalog. You will be asked to specify one or more Subscriptions when placing your order and may reference your order receipt or personalized homepage for a list of currently active Subscriptions.
From time to time, coffees may become temporarily or permanently removed from the Rwanda Bean catalog based on seasonality or other factors. In the event a coffee you have selected as part of a Subscription becomes unavailable, Rwanda Bean may at its sole and exclusive option elect to send you a substitute coffee, the price of which will not exceed the price of the originally specified. In all instances, the customer will be charged the price of the coffee as listed on Rwanda Bean's website at the time the coffee is shipped.
Rwanda Bean will use reasonable efforts to place and fill your Subscription orders within 72 hours or 3 business days of receiving the order. Shipping carrier selections and delays, and other factors beyond Rwanda Bean's control, actual delivery intervals for Subscription orders may vary by several days.
Pricing and Billing
Please note that if your Coffee Subscription includes a discounted price for a promotional period, once the promotional period expires, your Subscription will renew at the full price.
As such, if you purchase a Subscription, until such time as you terminate your Subscription in accordance with the directions on this Application, you hereby authorize, agree and assent to Rwanda Bean automatically billing your credit card submitted as part of the order process for such amounts that are due. Your non-termination of a Subscription reaffirms that we are authorized to charge your Payment Method for that Subscription. We may submit those charges for payment and you will be responsible for such charges. This does not waive our right to seek payment directly from you. Your charges may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise described when you initially selected to sign up for the Subscription. As part of this recurring Subscription, you will be charged the price listed on Rwanda Bean's website, for each coffee in your order, at the time each coffee is shipped.
Subject to these Terms, we hereby grant you a limited, revocable, non-transferable, and non-exclusive license to access and use the Service by displaying the content provided therein via your internet browser or device only for the purpose of shopping for personal items sold via the Service and not for any commercial use or use on behalf of any third party, except as explicitly permitted by us in writing in advance.

Disclaimer; Limitation of Liability
Although many studies have indicated that consuming coffee may be beneficial to your health, we are aware that coffee may cause allergic or other medical problems for some people, and that scientific studies may yet uncover other characteristics that are undesirable, at least for some people. Rwanda Bean encourages you to make your own determination about whether consuming coffee is appropriate for you, and we encourage you to prepare coffee in a way that will not cause you any harm. Your decisions are your own responsibility, and Rwanda Bean Company LLC disclaims any responsibility or liability with respect to any adverse consequences you, or anyone with whom you may share your coffee, experiences.
