4. Purchase Order and Deposit
- Purchase Order. Contemporaneously with the acceptance of Terms and Conditions by Buyer, the parties have entered into a Purchase Order, by which Buyer has agreed to purchase a certain number of units of the Products specified therein. The placing of an order by the Seller and the Buyer form a contract pursuant to these Terms and Conditions. All orders, as described in the confirmation email and undisputed within seven (7) days of its issuance, will be regarded as accurate and binding on the Buyer (the “Agreement”).
Buyer acknowledges and agrees that, while Seller will make its best efforts to produce and deliver all products ordered in the Purchase Order within twenty-four (24) calendar months, this Purchase Order is subject to supply and regulatory limitations and Seller may not deliver the full amount ordered in the event of supply shortages.
- Pre-Payment. In connection with the Purchase Order, Buyer shall pay the purchase price as specified in the order. This payment is partially refundable in the event of failure of Seller to perform, excepting a Force Majeure event, as defined in Section 13 in which case this payment is fully non-refundable.
5. Purchase of Product
- Purchase Price Provisional. Buyer acknowledges and agrees that the Purchase Price quoted in the Purchase Order is subject to change. If Seller experiences higher acquisition costs due to the Act, supply shortages, regulatory hurdles, or for any reason beyond its control, the Purchase Price for Buyer may increase. Buyer also acknowledges that the Purchase Price is exclusive of taxes, duties, tolls or levies or other similar payments required by any taxing authority. In the event that the Purchase Price increases, exclusive of any unpaid tax, duty, toll, or levy imposed by the Act or otherwise (not too exceed 25% of the quoted Purchase Price), the Seller may request a refund within fourteen (14) calendar days of notice of such Purchase Price increase. Upon such a request, Seller shall refund any payment, minus a twenty percent (20%) net surcharge, to the Buyer within ninety (90) calendar days.
- Final Invoice. After securing either all Products ordered by Buyer, or as much thereof as possible in the event of supply shortages, Seller shall deliver to Buyer a Final Invoice containing the final Purchase Price for the Purchase Order, or for as much of the Purchase Order as Seller is able to deliver to Buyer. If Seller is unable to deliver a Product in a duly placed Purchase Order, pursuant to these Terms and Conditions, Seller may request a refund payment for undelivered Product. Upon such a request, Seller shall refund any payment to the Buyer within ninety (90) calendar days.
6. Delivery. If delivery is elected by Buyer in the Purchase Order, within two (2) weeks of Product being available for Buyer, Seller shall cause the Product to be shipped to the Seller at the address specified in the Purchase Order but only as or if permitted by the Act. All items not designated for delivery will be stored at a premise licensed under the Act until picked up by Buyer, subject to Section 8 of these Terms and Conditions. The licensed premise may be located anywhere in the State of California, but Seller will strive to secure multiple locations for pick-up disbursed throughout the State of California.
Buyer shall undertake to inspect all goods when collecting or immediately on delivery and to notify the Seller or the carrier forthwith of any shortage or damage immediately. Seller may, in its discretion, complete order shortages or replace Products damaged in transit. Once the goods have been delivered to the Buyer and are out of the Seller’s control for any period of time, any damage or shortfall shall be deemed to have occurred after delivery and the Seller shall not be responsible for any shortage or damage.
7. Product Sold As-Is. All goods are sold on an “AS IS” basis. The Seller is unable to accept responsibility for and gives no representation, warranty or guarantee as to the state or condition of alcohol removed wines or whether the alcohol removed wine in any bottle corresponds to the quality or attributes which might be expected from its description.
8. Storage; Forfeit of Purchase Order. Beginning three (3) weeks after sending the notice to Buyer indicating that product is ready for delivery or pickup, and ending upon Buyer’s collection of product at a premises identified by Seller (if delivery is not selected by Buyer on the Purchase Order or delivery is not permitted under the Act or any other applicable law), Seller shall be entitled to charge to the Buyer reasonable storage fees, storage insurance charges and/or administration charges for goods which have been made available for collection but have not been collected by the Buyer and/or goods agreed between the parties to be stored by the Seller on the Buyer’s behalf. Subject to increase, upon reasonable notice, Storage fees shall be billed at five dollars ($5.00) per case, or part thereof, per month. Storage fees, storage insurance charges and administrative charges shall be billed on a monthly basis.
There shall be no refund of any unused portion of storage fees, storage insurance charges and administrative charges. In the event of any claim made against the insurance policy, an excess amount payable by the Buyer is applicable. The Buyer will receive the insurance pay-out amount less the excess amount, a reasonable administrative fee to be determined by the Seller and any other amount incurred by the Seller on the Buyer’s behalf.
If Buyer fails to pick up the Product six (6) months after said Product has been made available for pick up in the state of California, Buyer shall forfeit all of its rights to the Product and Seller may resell the Product without any refund being due to Buyer.
9. Title, Risk, and Fulfilment.
- All alcohol removed wines are offered subject to availability. Title to all goods supplied by the Seller shall remain with the Seller until the Product is sent out for delivery to Buyer.
- All risk of loss in Products shall pass to the Buyer from the time when Product is shipped from Seller’s premises, or products are collected at Seller’s premises, as applicable.
10. Seller’s Right to Sell Products. If the Buyer fails to make payment for the goods, or pay storage fees, storage insurance charges or administrative charges, the Seller shall be entitled to liquidate, sell or otherwise dispose of such portion of the goods as would be sufficient to pay the amount due and owing by the Buyer. If the Seller liquidates, sells or otherwise disposes of all of the Buyer’s goods, any amount of the sale price in excess of the amount owing to the Seller will be refunded to the Buyer without interest and minus a twenty percent (20%) surcharge.
11. Shortfalls; Packaging. Seller’s ability to supply or fulfill an order is limited by the quantity and bottle sizes of alcohol removed wines finally supplied to Seller by its suppliers and permitted by the Act. If Seller does not receive sufficient alcohol removed wines to enable it to supply or fulfill the quantity and bottle sizes of alcohol removed wines in Buyer’s order, Buyer agrees to accept such lesser quantity and/or alternative bottle sizes of the same alcohol removed wines, as allocated by Seller to Buyer, at Seller’s sole discretion. The Seller may, in its sole discretion or pursuant to the Act, change the alcohol removed wine’s inner or outer container or packaging. The unit is intended to be a bottle with approximately 750 milliliters of alcohol removed wine and 12 to 18 milligrams of THC, subject to changes caused by unforeseen commercial reasons or the Act. The Seller may, in its sole discretion, change the size or quantity of the packaging, provided the Product made available to the Buyer is 750 milliliters of alcohol removed wine.
12. Cancellation. No refund or cancellation will be accepted from Buyer once an order has been confirmed by Seller, except if agreed to in writing by the Seller. Any cancellation or refund agreed to by Seller is on the condition that all costs, expenses and losses incurred by Seller by reason of such cancellation will be paid forthwith by Buyer to Seller minus a twenty percent (20%) surcharge. Seller shall be entitled to cancel any order or reduce the quantity ordered by the Buyer according to availability of stock. In the event of such cancellation or reduction in quantity, the Seller will refund to the Buyer any Deposit amount paid for undelivered alcohol removed wines without interest, except where the cancellation or reduction in quantity sold is due to a Force Majeure.
13. Force Majeure. Seller shall not be liable for any failure to meet its obligations occasioned by circumstances beyond its control to which either it or its suppliers are subject, including but not limited to changes in federal or state laws and regulations or respective enforcement priorities, acts of God, exceptional weather conditions, floods, droughts, storms, lightning, high winds, typhoons, earthquakes, natural disasters, power failures, telephone or land-line connection failures, impacts with or by air crafts or aerial objects, explosions, hostilities, insurgencies, invasions, epidemics, quarantines, acts of foreign or public enemies, hi-jacking or unlawful seizure or wrongful exercise of control of vehicles, curtailment of transportation facilities, civil commotion, riots, industrial disputes, industrial actions by workmen, shortage of labor, goods and materials, acts or regulations of government, strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action, fires, terrorism or threats of terrorism, public health threats, war and civil disturbance, nuclear threats, nuclear accidents and/or nuclear contamination.

If the parties are unable to reform the agreement, the Buyer shall refund Seller’s payments minus a twenty percent (20%) surcharge.
