- ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
These terms and conditions of services (the “Terms”) are a legal and binding agreement between you and OWOC, LLC (“Allergy-Friendly.org”).
- ALLERGY-FRIENDLY.ORG AND A-F CERTIFICATION IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR USER VIGILANCE
The purpose of Allergy-Friendly.org, including the Site, is to provide a guide to allergy-friendly food establishments and promote food establishments that have demonstrated extra effort to be friendly to those with food allergies, food intolerances, or celiac disease. Though certification from Allergy-Friendly.org indicates that a food establishment has taken steps to safely serve diners with allergies, Allergy-Friendly.org cannot and does not guarantee that a food establishment will at all times use adequate processes or other safeguards to prevent cross-contact with allergens. Allergy-Friendly.org does not guarantee the safety of any food items.
The Site is in no way meant to be a replacement for your vigilance in contacting a food establishment to inquire about the ingredients and procedures relevant to your unique food needs. Allergy-Friendly.org assumes no liability for your experience at a food establishment.
Though we try to provide accurate information, Allergy-Friendly.org does not guarantee that the information provided on the Site is accurate or complete.
