Grove Collaborative Subscriptions

The Service is optimally designed for use as a subscription service. As part of your first order, you are required to sign up to a product subscription program that provides monthly shipments of products in previous orders (“Autoship”). You will also receive a trial VIP membership with your first order (“VIP Trial”). The VIP Trial will automatically renew into an annual paid VIP membership unless otherwise stated in your Autoship offer. (VIP membership and Autoship are collectively referred to as “Grove Subscriptions”). The Grove Subscriptions will automatically renew for additional intervals (Autoship will ship monthly and VIP will renew yearly), unless you cancel or modify your Grove Subscriptions. After opening your account with Grove Collaborative and completing your first order, you may cancel your Grove Subscriptions at any time (as described below) and continue to use the Service. For additional information on how Grove Subscriptions work read the Overview below and visit How Grove Works.

Grove Collaborative Subscription Overview

Automatic Shipments. Grove Collaborative is primarily a subscription service.

  • How Autoship works. When you subscribe to specific products on the Service for Autoship, you will receive automatic shipments of those products, except when (1) your Autoship order includes products covered by subscribe and save offers and is under $29; and (2) a product in your Autoship is unavailable (out of stock, discontinued, etc.) or otherwise requires a reasonable substitution. By subscribing, you understand and agree that we may send reasonable substitutions in a variety of circumstances, such as when products are unavailable, when your initial order includes a bundled consisting in part of certain non-consumable goods (e.g. buckets, spray bottles, etc.) that you might not want replenished, when product packaging or other features change or updated, or when we send you a full size version of products that were initially purchased in a trial or sample size when we send you a full size version of products that were initially purchased in a trial or sample size. Substitutions may include the same product in a different scent or flavor, the same product in a different size, the same product in different packaging, only the consumable products of a bundle, or a change in your order to move the affected product to a different subscription or order (and shipping separately). Your subscribed products will be automatically shipped to you on a personalized, customizable schedule based on information Grove collects from you about your household’s product preferences (in accordance with the Grove Collaborative Privacy Policy) and our estimates of the quantity of products your household likely needs and how frequently they should be replenished. Your first order will include a set of recommended and popular items, unless you remove them prior to placing the order. After your first order, products automatically sent to you will be a personalized assortment from products that you have selected for subscription in your previous orders (including free items and recommended items). If you have active product subscriptions, these products will be added to your cart in timeframes and order size/cost that are based on your previous orders with a minimum of $29/order (plus applicable taxes based on your zip code). Certain products may be added to your Autoship as gifts, at no charge to you. We will automatically charge your stored method of payment for your purchase of subscribed products that are automatically sent to you under Autoship.
  • Changing or Canceling Autoship. You may modify the products in and shipment dates of your Autoship, change your product subscriptions or cancel Autoship altogether. You will be notified of all future orders at the email address you provided and via SMS if you provide us with a phone number, so that you may review, change or cancel your order before shipment.
    • To change the date of your next Autoship order or to change the frequency of your Autoship, log into your account prior to 9:00 p.m. PST on the day before the ship date specified in your Account Settings for your then-current order, go to https://www.grove.co/settings/frequency, and set the desired shipment date or click the desired order frequency.
    • To remove or add products to your next Autoship order, log into your account prior to 9:00 p.m. PST on the day before the ship date specified in your Account Settings for your then-current order, go to “Your Cart”, and make changes.
    • To change what products are in your subscription visit your Account Settings page and select “Subscriptions”: https://www.grove.co/settings/subscriptions to see and update your product subscriptions.

Buying without Autoship. You do not need a Grove Subscription to purchase products from us. If have no active product subscriptions (or otherwise cancel Autoship), you will not receive product shipments automatically. You may still purchase products from the Service by selecting and ordering desired products

Shipping Details. We use third party carriers to ship items that you purchase, and as a result, the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier.

VIP. We offer a VIP program for an annual fee. With your first order, you are enrolled in a free trial of Grove's VIP program, which gives you free shipping for orders over $29 and occasional free gifts.

  • Trial Period. Except when your Autoship program offer indicates otherwise, at the end of the trial period (usually 60 days), your free VIP Trial will automatically turn into a recurring, annual paid membership for $19.99 per year, plus applicable taxes (based on your zip code) using your stored method of payment, unless you cancel before your trial period ends. If you either accept an Autoship program offer without a renewing VIP membership or choose to cancel your VIP Trial before it becomes a paid VIP membership, you will be charged applicable shipping fees with your future orders that do not meet the required minimum (usually, $49).
  • VIP Automatically renews. Your paid VIP membership will also automatically renew each year and you authorize us to automatically charge your stored method of payment a one-year subscription fee ($19.99 plus applicable tax, based on your zip code) on an annual basis around the anniversary of the date you enrolled in VIP, until you cancel. The VIP membership fees are non-refundable, however, if you feel that you were charged in error and contact Grove at [email protected] within 30 (thirty) days from the date of the charge, Grove may refund the subscription fees, at its sole discretion.
  • Canceling VIP. You can cancel or manage your VIP Trial or VIP membership, and find your annual expiration date from the Membership link on the Account Settings page. You may also cancel your VIP Trial or VIP membership by emailing [email protected]. You may cancel your VIP membership at any time, but your cancellation will be effective at the end of the then-current annual subscription period unless canceled within the 30 days from the charge date for your current subscription period. This means that if you cancel your VIP subscription after 30 days or more of the charge date of your subscription, your VIP Program subscription will continue for the remainder of that subscription period and you will not receive a refund.

Eligibility

You must be at least 18 years of age to use the Service. By agreeing to these Grove Collaborative Terms or by using the Service, you represent and warrant to us: (i) that you are at least 18 years of age; (ii) that you have not previously been suspended or removed from the Service; and (iii) that your registration and your use of the Service is in compliance with any and all applicable laws and regulations. If you are using the Service on behalf of an organization, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that organization to these Grove Collaborative Terms and that you agree to be bound by them on behalf of that organization.

Accounts and Registration

You need an account to use most features of the Service, and you may be required to be logged into your account and have a valid payment method associated with it. You may visit your Account Settings to manage your payment information. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your account, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password. You agree that the information you provide to us is and will be accurate, complete and up-to-date at all times. If you provide any information that is inaccurate, incomplete or not up-to-date, or if we determine in our sole discretion that such information may be inaccurate, incomplete or not up-to-date, we have the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse you any and all current or future use of Service. You may not register for more than one account or register for an account on behalf of an individual other than yourself. If you have reason to believe that your account is no longer secure, immediately notify us at [email protected].

Payment, Credit Card Billing, Automatic Renewal, and Recurring Charges

Fees to access the service. Access to certain features of the Service and certain Grove Subscriptions (such as VIP), may require you to pay enrollment or membership fees plus applicable tax. We also charge fees for shipping (when not enrolled in VIP or for orders under the stated minimum) and supply chain costs. Autoship orders will be charged in amounts that may vary based on the type, quantity and frequency of the products that you have selected and subscribed to for Autoship.

Changes to Fees and Pricing. Grove Collaborative may change any fees associated with the Service, including its shipping fee, supply chain fee, and the VIP membership fee, on a going forward basis in any manner and at any time by providing notice by email or other communications. Grove Collaborative also reserves the right to change product pricing in any manner and at any time by publishing the new prices on the Service. Product pricing changes will be effective when published.

Methods of Payment. All amounts charged are in U.S. Dollars. You must provide us with a valid credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or any other issuer accepted by us) or PayPal account (“Payment Provider”). We will charge the Payment Provider you specify in your Account Setting. By providing your Payment Provider information, you authorize us or our third party payment processors to charge: (i) all membership or enrollment fees to such Payment Provider; and (ii) all fees associated with the Delivery Service and Subscription Service, including, without limitation, all applicable taxes, product costs and shipping fees, to such Payment Provider prior to shipment and on a per-delivery basis. If you pay any applicable fees with a credit card, we may seek pre-authorization of your credit card account prior to your purchase to verify that the credit card is valid and has the necessary funds or credit available to cover your purchase. If we do not receive payment from your Payment Provider, you must pay all amounts due upon demand and we may suspend your access to the Service until such amounts are paid. All sales are final and, except as provided in our refund policy, we will not issue refunds or accept returns.

Minimums. Your order must meet a certain dollar value of purchased products to be eligible for free shipping. These minimum amounts vary depending on the type of plan and the type of membership you selected. To balance our commitment to sustainability while offering the best customer experience, we offer the option to ship orders under $29 if you're a VIP, and under $49 if you're not, with a $4.99 shipping fee to help offset the environmental impact of small orders. We still hope to avoid Grove boxes going out with a single item rattling around inside, and we trust our customers to make the best decisions for the planet and their families. For more information on order minimums, please see our FAQs

Authorization for Automatic Renewal of Grove Collaborative Subscriptions. Your Grove Subscriptions will automatically charge as described above unless you cancel. You hereby authorize us to charge your Payment Provider now, and again at the beginning of any subsequent subscription period or order. Upon renewal of your subscription, if Grove Collaborative does not receive payment from your Payment Provider, (i) you agree to pay all amounts due on your account upon demand, and/or (ii) you agree that Grove Collaborative may either terminate or suspend the Subscription Services and continue to attempt to charge your Payment Provider until payment is received (upon receipt of payment, your account will be activated and for purposes of automatic renewal, your new subscription commitment period will begin as of the day payment was received). We will send you reminders of your upcoming subscription charges.

Referral Program. Subject to the Grove Collaborative Referral Program policy , we may offer members the ability to earn credits or discounts (“Referral Credits”) toward future shipments of products from Grove Collaborative. Please read our Referral Program for more details.

Third Party Providers. We use and reserve the right to continue using third party payment providers (“Payment Processors”). Your electronic payment of fees through any Payment Processors is also governed by the Payment Processors’ terms of service and privacy policy. Currently, we use Stripe, Inc. (“Stripe”) and PayPal, Inc. (“PayPal”) as our Payment Processors for payment services (e.g., card acceptance and related services), but may add others from time to time. By making payments via the Service, you agree to be bound by Stripe’s US Terms of Service available at https://stripe.com/us/terms and Privacy Policy available at https://stripe.com/us/privacy , PayPal’s User Agreement available at https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full and Privacy Policy available at https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full , as applicable. You hereby consent to provide and authorize Grove Collaborative and the Payment Processors to share any information and payment instructions you provide to the extent required to complete the payment transactions in accordance with the Grove Collaborative Terms, including personal, financial, credit card payment, and transaction information.

Pre-Sales

From time to time, we may give you the opportunity to pre-purchase limited edition, seasonal or specialty products during a pre-sale event. Your account will be charged when you place your pre-sale order. Please allow up to one year for your pre-sale items to ship. When the pre-sale products arrive in stock, we will send you an email to notify you of the estimated delivery date and we will display the pre-sale products in your cart as free products. If we’re unable to ship within one year from the date you placed your pre-sale order, or if you do not ship your pre-sale products within sixty five (65) days of the date you placed your pre-sale order, we will cancel the order and provide a full-refund. It is your responsibility to keep your billing and shipping information current; we are not responsible or liable if you fail to update this information. You can update your information at any time prior to your ship date by changing the shipping address in your account profile.

Order Acceptance

Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason. We further reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order, without prior notice to you, to supply less than the quantity you ordered of any item. Your order will be deemed accepted by Grove Collaborative upon our delivery of the products that you have ordered. We may require additional verifications or information before accepting any order.

Order Changes and Cancellations

You may cancel orders provided that we have not begun to process the products in your order for shipment. You may do this by visiting your cart.

Your orders and your shipment dates can be modified at any time before the ship date specified in your Account Settings for your then-current order. You may update the date of your shipment and/or the items in your shipment, on grove.co/pantry. If you would like to stop automatic shipments, you can go to https://www.grove.co/shipments/schedule and click “Pause Auto-Shipments”.

  • Mandatory Informal Pre-Suit Dispute Resolution. We value our customers and seek to resolve disputes informally where possible. Before filing any lawsuit relating to a dispute, you agree to first send a detailed notice (“Notice”) to Grove by email at: [email protected]. Your Notice must contain all of the following information: (1) your full name; (2) your address; (3) your telephone number; (4) your email address; (5) information sufficient for Grove to identify the order and/or product at issue (e.g., your order number, order confirmation email, etc.); and (6) a detailed description of your Claim, the nature and basis of your Claim(s), and the nature and basis of the relief you are seeking with a calculation for it. You must personally sign this Notice. Grove Collaborative also agrees that if we have a dispute with you relating to a Grove order or service, we will first send a detailed Notice to your e-mail address on file with us, and this Notice will also set forth (1) information sufficient for you to identify the order or service at issue and (2) a detailed description of our dispute, the nature and basis of our claim(s), and the nature and basis of the relief we seek.
  • You and Grove agree to negotiate in good faith, for a period of at least 60 days from the date of the Notice, in an effort to swiftly resolve any Claim without the need for a formal proceeding. Compliance with and completion of this mandatory informal dispute resolution process is required before filing any lawsuit. The statute of limitations and any filing fee deadlines will be tolled while the parties engage in this process. A court will have the authority to enjoin the filing of any lawsuit concerning a Claim without first providing a Notice or otherwise participating in good faith in this informal dispute resolution process.
  • Waiver of Class or Other Non-Individualized Relief. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AND GROVE COLLABORATIVE AGREE THAT ANY AND ALL CLAIMS SHALL BE RESOLVED INDIVIDUALLY, WITHOUT RESORT TO ANY FORM OF CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION.

  • Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND GROVE COLLABORATIVE ALSO HEREBY VOLUNTARILY AND KNOWINGLY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL. You and Grove Collaborative are instead electing that all Claims shall be resolved by a judge on an individual basis.
  • Severability. Except as provided in these Grove Collaborative Terms, if any part or parts of these waivers are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the waiver shall continue in full force and effect.
  • Survival of Agreement. This section will survive the termination of your relationship with Grove Collaborative.
  • Modification. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Grove Collaborative makes any future material change to section, you may reject that change within thirty (30) days of such change becoming effective by writing Grove Collaborative at the following address: 1301 Sansome St, San Francisco, CA 94111.
