We are a facilitator of services – not a provider of services or prepared food. More specifically, We have created a marketplace for prepared food by bringing together customers and chefs from all geographic locations, backgrounds and ethnicities. We enable potential customers to search for suitable chefs and chefs' meal postings within defined geographic locations for the purpose of buying and selling prepared food services.
It is important for you to understand that We do not control or endorse any of Our site cooks. Nor do We determine which foods, ingredients or their level of food quality that should be made available for sale through the site. As such, the responsibility is wholly yours to take the necessary measures to protect your health and safety. We cannot assure the good intention of any site User.
Likewise, We are not in a position to identify the ingredients that may cause allergic reactions for those with food allergies. We merely are a facilitator, bringing together chefs and those wishing to purchase prepared food services. Site Users concerned with food allergies need to be aware of this risk and must understand that We in no way screen the ingredients, health factors, or quality of any prepared food offered through the site, www.gobble.com.
You understand and acknowledge that (i) We do not control or endorse any chef, or accept responsibility for any prepared food, its quality, or any physical harm such prepared food may cause; (ii) any dealings you may have with Site chefs or buyers are at your own risk; We will not be liable for any physical injury, or any other loss whatsoever, resulting from you dealings with other site Users, including as a result of face-to-face meetings with site chefs; (iii) We will not be liable or responsible for any prepared food or services offered by Site Users that is unhealthy or that is the cause of any injury.

Users who want to use the Site to offer or sell food agree to research and comply with these city, state and local laws and obtain any necessary licenses or permits when required. That we facilitate transactions in your geographic location should in no way be taken as an endorsement of legality.

We reserve the right to hold you liable, and you understand that you will indemnify Us, for any loss We may experience as a result of your violation of any laws or regulations.
