When you use the Website to purchase any Product, you represent and warrant to us that you: (a) are 21 years of age or older, (b) are a legal resident of the United States, (c) have not previously materially breached the Terms in connection with prior Product purchases, and (d) have the full power and authority to enter into and perform these Terms, and doing so will not violate any other agreement to which you are a party. We reserve the right to modify these Terms from time to time in our sole discretion and will not specifically notify you of those modifications unless they affect your order. The version of the Terms in effect at the time submit your order is the version of the Terms that applies to that order. Accordingly, you should review these Terms prior to each order. If you do not agree to the modified Terms, then you may not submit orders or purchase Products.

 

PAYMENT AND BILLING INFORMATION

By providing a credit card or other payment method that we accept, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated payment method and that you authorize us (and our third-party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the total amount of your purchase (including any applicable taxes, delivery charges, and other charges). When you submit an order for multiple Product shipments over time (e.g. our Bottle of the Month wine club, which is charged monthly), you authorize us at the time you submit the order to charge your payment method for the full amount of each shipment under that order at or around the time of such shipments (including the Product prices, taxes, delivery charges, and other charges applicable at the time of shipment). If the payment method cannot be verified, is invalid, or is otherwise not acceptable, your order may be suspended or cancelled. You must resolve any problem we encounter so that we may proceed with your order. If you fail to pay any fees or charges when due, you authorize us to charge such amount directly to the payment method you used for your order. You are responsible and liable for any fees, including attorneys’ fees and collection costs, that we may incur in our efforts to collect any unpaid balances from you.

 

TAXES

We will collect applicable sales tax on Products shipped to the states for which we determine we have a duty to collect sales tax. If an item is subject to sales tax, you agree that the amount of taxes shown at checkout may be adjusted to comply with our obligations to collect such taxes.

 

REFUND POLICY

If you are dissatisfied with any Product you purchased through the Website, you may return the Product (which must be in new and unused condition in its original packaging) within thirty (30) days from the date on which you received the Product by contacting us at service@swirl-sip.com. After we receive your returned Product, we will issue a refund for the price you paid for the Product on the original payment method used.

In addition, we will replace any bottle of wine that is determined to be flawed (corked, oxidized, etc.) with another bottle of the same wine as a replacement.  The unopened bottle must be returned in order to receive the replacement.  Unfortunately, we are not able to replace wines without the original opened bottle and its contents.

We are not able to refund opened bottles of wine based on personal preferences.

If you do not comply with the terms of this section, you will be ineligible to receive a refund.

 

DELIVERY OF PRODUCTS

You are responsible for verifying the accuracy of the delivery address and for ensuring that someone 21 or older receives the Product.  If someone 21 or older is not there, we cannot deliver. We will have to reschedule delivery and new delivery charges may be incurred.

Any individual at the delivery address who accepts a delivery from us is presumed to be authorized to receive such delivery. In cases in which you have designated an alternative receiver (over the age of 21), such person shall accept the delivery under all of the same terms and conditions that would apply had you accepted the delivery yourself.

You are responsible for inspecting all Products you receive from us for any damage or other issues upon delivery. You should always inspect your delivery to confirm that the Product is in proper condition. Following delivery, you are solely responsible for the proper and safe storage of the Product.

You consent to our using and sharing the information you have submitted as necessary and appropriate to perform our obligations to you for your order, but we will only use your personally identifiable information and payment account information for purposes of fulfilling your orders for Products from us. We will not sell any of your personally identifiable information or payment account information to any third party (except in connection with a sale of our business), and we will not share your information with third-party advertisers.
