All Sedjedo meals should be kept refrigerated until consumed and freshness cannot be guaranteed past the 4th day from receipt. It is up to the client to maintain freshness once received. Depending on the season and temperature in your area at the time of delivery, advance planning by you should be made for immediate and proper storage of your meals prior to consumption. It’s important to place your Sedjedo meals and perishable items in the refrigerator when you receive them. By purchasing the Sedjedo’s Kitchen meal delivery program, you agree to properly and promptly refrigerate all meals until you plan to eat them. Since all of our food is fresh (and preservative-free, chemical-free, etc.), it will go bad if not properly stored and refrigerated. Sedjedo’s Kitchen is not responsible for any food that has not been properly and promptly refrigerated after delivery.
You may provide additional delivery instructions when setting up your account or placing your Order, 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 on your behalf. 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. We will do our best to deliver your meals to you in accordance with your specifications. In such cases, if you, your doorman, your neighbor, or your alternate receiver is not present at the time of delivery, our team will leave your package according to your delivery instructions or in the safest available spot. If there are no specific delivery instructions, no safe available spot and we are unable to reach you at the time of delivery, we reserve the right to cancel your order and no refund will be issued.

In some cases, delivery may occur prior to the scheduled delivery date. In the event that timely delivery of your Products is not feasible, as determined in our sole discretion, we may cancel your delivery and issue you a credit or refund of the purchase price for that delivery.
Once the delivery has been made, we are no longer responsible for any damage to the delivery or for the security of its contents.

Depending on the circumstances, we may, in our sole discretion, replace the meal or products, provide you with a full or partial refund for the purchase price of that meal or products, or provide you with a credit for that meal or product that will be automatically applied to future deliveries under your meal program subscription or agreement. In the event we offer an accommodation, we may require a return of the Product(s), photographic documentation or other information for quality control or other purposes, prior to providing an accommodation. If issued, a refund may take 3-5 business days to show up, depending on which bank you use. If you are provided with a credit for a future program, we may implement the credit in a variety of ways at our discretion, including extending the program for you ourselves, providing you with a discount code to use on a future Order, or applying a credit to your account, which will be automatically deducted from your next payment.

If this does not suit your schedule, please let us know and we will do our best to find a better arrangement.
12. Weather & Traffic Allowances
Our delivery team and partners do their best to get your food to you on time so you may enjoy it at its freshest. Still, they run into delays due to weather, traffic, and other factors that are outside of their control. We cannot guarantee delivery within your selected time slot.
In instances of inclement weather, we reserve the right to cancel our deliveries in order to avoid putting our delivery teams at risk. In such a case, we will notify you as early as possible and your meal program will be automatically extended by the number of days cancelled. If this does not suit your schedule, please let us know and we will do our best to find a better arrangement.
As both traffic and weather are outside of Sedjedo’s control, cash refunds will not be issued for affected Orders.
