Foodie Penpals Terms & Conditions

Foodie penpals is an exciting way to meet up with other bloggers and foodies in Kenya. It is a great way to meet new people and learn about new blogs. I hope that everyone will have a great time and that we will all work hard to ensure that the programs runs smoothly and that we all keep our end of the deal :-) .

By signing up to participate in Foodie Penpals, you are hereby agreeing to the following terms and conditions:

Condition 1: You will contact the person you are matched with withing 72 hours of receiving your match to discuss dietary needs, allergies and food preferences.

Condition 2: You will make an effort to meet the dietary needs of your penpal- i.e not sending animal products to vegans, pork to a Muslim, dairy products if your match tries to avoid dairy or junk food if they ask for healthy snacks.

Condition 3: You will mail/ deliver your box between the 15th -20th of the month. It is HIGHLY recommended that you get the telephone number, purchase delivery confirmation/get a tracking number for your package if you will be using a courier. If your match does not receive a package for the month, you will receive a warning. If it happens two months in a row, you will no longer be able to participate in the program

Condition 4: In the event that you do not receive a package,neither Wangeci nor the African Kaya blog can be held accountable. By agreeing to participate in FPP, we cannot 100% guarantee that you will receive a package. The mail gets lost, couriers fail and your partner may fail to deliver.

Condition 5. If I do not hear from you by the 3rd of the month, I will assume that you wish to participate in that month’s parcel swap and will assign you a penpal. Participation will not be confirmed by me on a month to month basis. You may opt out at any time, by contacting Wangeci. You can then opt back in when you’re ready, by doing the same.

Condition 6: Using the foodie penpals email list to send out personal or spam emails promoting your blog, giveaways, etc is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. Doing so is grounds for immediate dismissal from the program as it is a violation of the other participants’ privacy.

Failure to comply with these terms and conditions is grounds for dismissal from the Foodie Penpals Program.
