We are not responsible for any delay in, or failure of, performance of our obligations under these Terms and Conditions arising from any event which is outside of our control (for example, an act of God, governmental act, war, fire, adverse weather conditions including snow, flood or storm, explosion or civil commotion, failure of a third party (other than our sub-contractors) or in information technology or telecommunications services, or industrial action).

In the event of a significant delay or failure, we will contact you and take reasonable steps to minimise the effect of the delay or failure.

If you subsequently receive your order after cancelling it and getting a refund, you must let us know and allow us to collect the products you have received.

Liability

We will not be liable to you or to any third party for any loss, damage or costs which arise as a result of your failure to comply with the recommendations set out in the “Important storage and transportation information” section below.

Important storage and transportation information

A case of wine or Champagne is heavy so please take care lifting it. If you are concerned about the weight we advise that you transfer the bottles 1 or 2 at a time.

Sparkling wines and Champagne can be volatile due to the pressure of the gases inside.  Take extra care when opening these pointing the cork away from you and other people.

The correct storage of wine, sparkling wine and Champagne is extremely important particularly where corporate labels have been affixed. Where possible, you should store bottles inside at room temperature away from heat and direct sunlight.

Data Protection

We will use your information for the purposes of processing your order. We will never share your details with any third parties other than our delivery partners for the purpose of delivering your order.

General

Nothing in these Terms operates to exclude or limit our liability for any death or personal injury caused by our negligence. These Terms and any orders placed by you under them are governed by English law and the English courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction to determine any dispute arising between us in relation to them.
