All Users of the Service must be 18 years old or older. You may not access or use the Service, or accept these Terms if you are not at least 18 years old. Misrepresenting your age or using the site under the age of 18 is a direct violation of these Terms and will result in account removal.

- The Service
NYFTY DOES NOT PROVIDE COURIER SERVICES AND DOES NOT AUTHORIZE ANY USE OF THE SERVICES TO SEND GOODS. NYFTY IS ALSO NOT A TRANSPORTATION SERVICE AND DOES NOT AUTHORIZE ANY USE OF THE SERVICES TO PROVIDE TRANSPORTATION.
Nyfty functions as the arranger and scheduler for purchases and delivery of goods (the “Service”).
Independent third party registrants of Nyfty’s site that have been approved to accept and deliver orders shall be referred to as “Drivers” herein. Nyfty also refers to Drivers as “Pilot” or “Pilots” and all Terms associated with “Driver” should also be applied to “Pilot”. You understand this name may change in the future and that any name changes will be applied to the provisions associated with Drivers even if these Terms have not been updated to reflect the new name.
The use of “Pilot” is entirely marketing and has no association with aviation or the actual flying of planes. In no way does Nyfty grant the ability to operate a plane or any other privileges associated with a pilot’s license.
You understand that “User” refers to anyone who accesses and uses our service. Users are customers, drivers, website visitors, or any other person(s) who access the Service.
You understand that we do NOT mandate any form of transportation for our Drivers. Although called Drivers, they may opt to deliver orders without a car, including walking or biking. We do NOT require Drivers to have access to a car, and Drivers understand and accept all risks associated with their choice to use a car to deliver orders.
You may NOT request, and Drivers may NOT deliver, purchase or otherwise aide the sale or trafficking of illegal or hazardous materials. You may also not request, and Drivers may not purchase or deliver any goods requiring identification to purchase or believed by the Driver or Nyfty to be subject to specific standards or container requirements to transport as dictated by law or regulation.
- Relationship with Drivers
If Drivers choose to drive a car, they release Nyfty from all associated liabilities from driving. Drivers are personally liable for all damages they encounter as a result of using a car with our Services. Drivers are solely responsible for the safe purchase and delivery of goods and are responsible to replace and/or credit the customer for the value of any goods incorrectly purchased or damaged in delivery.
WE DO NOT CURRENTLY HIRE DRIVERS FOR OUR SERVICE AS EMPLOYEES, THOUGH WE MAY DO SO IN LIMITED CIRCUMSTANCES AS DESCRIBED HEREIN. REGARDLESS OF THE HOURS DRIVERS CHOOSE TO DRIVE, DRIVERS ARE CLASSIFIED AS PART-TIME 1099 INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS AND ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR ANY COMPANY BENEFITS. PROMOTIONAL BENEFITS FOR DELIVERING ORDERS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO BONUSES, DO NOT CHANGE THIS RELATIONSHIP.
IN CERTAIN MARKETS, IF NYFTY HIRES DRIVERS AS EMPLOYEES OR AGREES TO ANY PAYMENT AGREEMENT NOT CONSISTENT WITH THE TYPICAL PER-ORDER PAYMENT, THAT DOES NOT CHANGE THE INDEPENDENT, NON-EMPLOYEE STATUS OF OTHER DRIVERS. THOSE WILL BE CONSIDERED INDIVIDUAL CASES, GOVERNED BY OUTSIDE AGREEMENTS AND SEPARATE FROM THESE TERMS.
NOTHING IN THESE TERMS WILL BE CONSTRUED TO CREATE A RELATIONSHIP OF EMPLOYER AND EMPLOYEE, PRINCIPAL AND AGENT, PARTNERSHIP OR JOINT VENTURE, OR ANY OTHER FIDUCIARY RELATIONSHIP. DRIVERS WILL NOT BE ENTITLED TO WORKER’S COMPENSATION, RETIREMENT, INSURANCE OR OTHER BENEFITS AFFORDED TO EMPLOYEES OF NYFTY.
NYFTY IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WITHOLDING ANY TAXES FOR DRIVERS.

You hereby represent and warrant that your User Content does not violate our Acceptable Use Policy (set forth herein).

- DMCA Policy
Nyfty respects the intellectual property of others and asks that users of our Service do the same. In connection with our Service, we have adopted and implemented a policy respecting copyright law that provides for the removal of any infringing materials and for the termination, in appropriate circumstances, of users of our online Service who are repeat infringers of intellectual property rights, including copyrights. If you believe that one of our users is, through the use of our Service, unlawfully infringing the copyright(s) in a work, and wish to have the allegedly infringing material removed, the following information in the form of a written notification (pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)) must be provided to our designated Copyright Agent: (1) your physical or electronic signature; (2) identification of the copyrighted work(s) that you claim to have been infringed; (3) identification of the material on our services that you claim is infringing and that you request us to remove; (4) sufficient information to permit us to locate such material; (5) your address, telephone number, and e-mail address; (6) a statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the objectionable material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or under the law; and (7) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are either the owner of the copyright that has allegedly been infringed or that you are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.
Please note that, pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 512(f), any misrepresentation of material fact (falsities) in a written notification automatically subjects the complaining party to liability for any damages, costs and attorney’s fees incurred by us in connection with the written notification and allegation of copyright infringement.

- Payments, Orders and Storefronts
By using the Services, you understand you may be charged for the good services you receive in accordance with the order form. We use a third party payment processor for all payments. By submitting an order, you agree that we may share your payment information with the third party payment processor and that you will be charged for any charges associated with your order including order cost plus delivery fees plus added gratuity (“Tip”) plus processing fees. By submitting an order, you also agree that you may be assessed additional fees associated with use of the Service that violates the Terms or orders that include errors or misuse as determined by Nyfty. Such potential additional fees will be disclosed to you prior to your placing an order. Nyfty reserves the right to charge Users a fee for orders submitted to stores outside of the store’s posted hours of operation or for orders where items requested are out of stock. It is the responsibility of the User to contact the store and verify an item is in stock prior to submitting an order.
You understand that a Driver reserves the right to determine brands and types of goods if not otherwise detailed in the order. No refunds will be given for deliveries resulting from insufficient information provided within the order. You are responsible to provide necessary information for the Driver to purchase desired goods. Partial or incomplete orders must still be paid for in full if delivered, and you understand that if particular goods or brands are out of stock, it will not render the order cancelled in its entirety, rather, you may be assessed a fee as set forth in the previous paragraph. All payments are final and non-refundable unless otherwise determined by Nyfty.
By listing a business listing page (a “Storefront”) on our site, we make no representation of any partnership, agency or joint venture in any capacity with that business. Storefronts are listed on our Service through an automated algorithm and community edits and maintained through publicly available information and the work of our Users to submit and maintain accurate information. No representation is made to the accuracy of any information contained in a store or product description. Nyfty is not responsible for inaccurate information, even if that information is provided directly by the business within Nyfty-verified or managed storefronts. Unless otherwise explicitly provided on an individual Storefront, Nyfty has no direct affiliation, partnership or contractual relationship with the listed businesses and is not authorized to act on their behalf. All trade and service marks used and affiliated with such businesses remain the property of their respective owners and inclusion in the Service by Nyfty does not represent any endorsement or ownership thereof.
Nyfty makes no guarantee of the quality of products or items delivered, and the customer accepts the quality of items as a result of delivery. For safety reasons, Drivers MAY NOT open or otherwise alter items after purchase. Because of this, Users recognize if a Driver purchased or requested an order as stated by the customer, the actual accuracy of the order is the responsibility of the customer and/or the business providing the order, not Nyfty or the Driver. Nyfty shall not be liable for orders or items inaccurately provided by outside businesses and Users agree to pay for orders in this instance. As some items or products may not deliver well – for example, frozen goods – the customer recognizes that items may change in quality as a result of delivery and agrees to accept the item in the state delivered.
- Third Party Links, Ads and Other Users
Service may contain links to third-party websites and services, and/or display advertisements for third parties (collectively, “Third-Party Links & Ads”). Such Third-Party Links & Ads are not under the control of Nyfty, and Nyfty is not responsible for any Third-Party Links & Ads. Nyfty provides access to these Third-Party Links & Ads only as a convenience to you, and does not review, approve, monitor, endorse, warrant, or make any representations with respect to Third-Party Links & Ads. You use all Third-Party Links & Ads at your own risk, and should apply a suitable level of caution and discretion in doing so. When you click on any of the Third-Party Links & Ads, the applicable third party’s terms and policies apply, including the third party’s privacy and data gathering practices. You should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any transaction in connection with such Third-Party Links & Ads.
Each Service user is solely responsible for any and all of its own User Content. Because we do not control User Content, you acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for any User Content, whether provided by you or by others. We make no guarantees regarding the accuracy, currency, suitability, or quality of any User Content. Your interactions with other Service users are solely between you and such users. You agree that Nyfty will not be responsible for any loss or damage incurred as the result of any such interactions. If there is a dispute between you and any Service user, we are under no obligation to become involved.
You hereby release and forever discharge the Nyfty (and our officers, employees, agents, successors, and assigns) from, and hereby waive and relinquish, each and every past, present and future dispute, claim, controversy, demand, right, obligation, liability, action and cause of action of every kind and nature (including personal injuries, death, and property damage), that has arisen or arises directly or indirectly out of, or that relates directly or indirectly to, the Service (including any interactions with, or act or omission of, other Service users or any Third-Party Links & Ads). IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU HEREBY WAIVE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542 IN CONNECTION WITH THE FOREGOING, WHICH STATES: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.”

Nyfty reserves the right, at your expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter for which you are required to indemnify us, and you agree to cooperate with our defense of these claims. You agree not to settle any matter without the prior written consent of Nyfty. Nyfty will use reasonable efforts to notify you of any such claim, action or proceeding upon becoming aware of it.

- Relationship of parties. No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you, Nyfty, or any Driver or other third party service provider as a result of this Agreement or use of the Services.
- Dispute Resolution. Please read this Arbitration Agreement carefully. It is part of your contract with Nyfty and affects your rights. It contains procedures for MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
Applicability of Arbitration Agreement.All claims and disputes (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as set forth below) in connection with the Terms or the use of any product or service provided by the Nyfty that cannot be resolved informally or in small claims court shall be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis under the terms of this Arbitration Agreement. Unless otherwise agreed to, all arbitration proceedings shall be held in English. This Arbitration Agreement applies to you and the Nyfty, and to any subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or goods provided under the Terms.
Arbitration. You agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising hereunder or relating in any way to these Terms and not informally resolved shall be settled by binding arbitration in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules of Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”). The arbitrator shall issue a written decision specifying the basis for the award made. The party filing a claim or counterclaim in the arbitration proceeding shall pay the deposit(s) determined by JAMS with respect to such claim or counterclaim. All other costs associated with the arbitration and imposed by JAMS shall be paid as determined by the arbitrator(s) and, in absence of such determination, equally by each party to the arbitration. In addition, unless the arbitrator awards payment of reasonable attorney and other fees to a party, each party to the arbitration shall be responsible for its own attorneys' fees and other professional fees incurred in connection with the arbitration. Determinations of the arbitrator will be final and binding upon the parties to the arbitration, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction, or application may be made to such court for a judicial acceptance of the award and an order of enforcement, as the case may be. The arbitrator shall apply the substantive law of the State of North Carolina, without giving effect to its conflict of laws rules.
Waiver of Jury Trial.THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient and less costly than rules applicable in a court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In the event any litigation should arise between you and the Nyfty in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND THE NYFTY WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge.
Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER.
Confidentiality. All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, including but not limited to the award of the arbitrator and compliance therewith, shall be strictly confidential. The parties agree to maintain confidentiality unless otherwise required by law. This paragraph shall not prevent a party from submitting to a court of law any information necessary to enforce this Agreement, to enforce an arbitration award, or to seek injunctive or equitable relief.
Severability. If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
Right to Waive.Any or all of the rights and limitations set forth in this Arbitration Agreement may be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted. Such waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of this Arbitration Agreement.
Emergency Equitable Relief. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek emergency equitable relief before a state or federal court in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration. A request for interim measures shall not be deemed a waiver of any other rights or obligations under this Arbitration Agreement.
Claims Not Subject to Arbitration. Notwithstanding the foregoing, claims of defamation, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and infringement or misappropriation of the other party’s patent, copyright, trademark or trade secrets shall not be subject to this Arbitration Agreement.
Courts. In any circumstances where the foregoing Arbitration Agreement permits the parties to litigate in court, the parties hereby agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, for such purpose
