License to Use Calculators

foodCompliance grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable right to use calculators on the Website to carry out functions such as, without limitation, producing food nutrition labels, provided that you pay any required fees and comply fully with these Terms of Use.

Disclaimer of Warranties

You agree that your use of the Website is at your sole risk and responsibility. The Website is provided on an "as is" basis without warranties of any kind, express or implied. This includes implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement.

You agree that in no event shall foodCompliance be liable for any incidental or consequential damages resulting from use of the Website. That includes damages for loss of use, data or profits - whether or not you advise us of the possibility of such damages. That also includes damages arising from your use of any information or label produced by a calculator.

You agree that foodCompliance's liability, no matter what the reason, shall not exceed the fee you paid for use of the Website or any calculators or other services available on it.

Any material downloaded or obtained through the use of the Website is done at your own discretion and risk. In particular, foodCompliance disclaims any responsibility for any damage to your computer system or loss of data resulting from the download of such material.

We make our calculators available on the understanding that users exercise their own skill and judgment with respect to their use. foodCompliance makes no warranty that the results generated by a calculator will be free from error, or if used will ensure compliance with the relevant food laws. Before relying on the calculator's results, you should carefully evaluate their accuracy and completeness for your purposes, and obtain appropriate expert advice.

Please note the inherent limitations in any calculator. For example, food composition tables used in a calculator may contain nutrient data that is an average of nutrients in a particular sample of foods and ingredients, determined at a particular time. The nutrient composition of foods and ingredients can vary substantially over different batches, and between brands because of a number of factors including changes in season, processing practices and ingredient source.

Given these limitations, the results generated by the calculator will be approximate in nature, rather than exactly reflect your product's average nutrient composition. Nutrient data from analyzing a representative sample of your product will often more exactly reflect its average nutrient composition.

We provide third-party links on the Website only as a convenience, and the inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by us. Any hyperlink, association, connection or reference made by third party sites or any other commercial or non-commercial organizations to foodCompliance.com is strictly prohibited without our prior written consent.


We will generally store the data you enter into a calculator for your own later use. You may access your data for up to one year from initial entry into the calculator. After that time, we may, at our option, delete the data or charge a fee for continued storage.
