You may not use our products for any illegal or unauthorized purpose nor may you, in the use of the Service, violate any laws in your jurisdiction (including but not limited to copyright laws).

SECTION 3 – OUT OF STOCK ITEMS
If the item you ordered is out of stock you will be notified by e-mail or phone within 48 hours. We will also let you know when the item should be coming into stock and give you details of other similar products that are in stock at present. You are entitled to cancel at any time before your item ships from us for a full refund. Due to the specialist nature of the Wines & Spirits we sell and the finite nature of their supply, we can sometimes run out of stock of a particular advertised vintage.
SECTION 4 – VINTAGE CHANGES
Each vintage of every wine produces a finite supply. Whilst we will always endeavour to supply the vintage listed for a product, there will always be instances where we will have moved on to a more recent vintage before we get a chance to update the description. If this happens and you order the product with an exhausted Vintage, we reserve the right to substitute it with a wine of equal or superior quality and value.
SECTON 5 – PRODUCT IMAGES
While we endeavour to keep our images as current as possible to reflect the exact stock we currently offer, there will be occasions where products change packaging or wines change vintage before we get the opportunity to update the associated image on the site.
While we aim as much as possible to have images showing which offer a current representation of the product, due to rapid and often unadvised changes in packaging/vintage, product images are for illustration purposes only and cannot be used as an exact representation of what is available.

In the event where a product is off or suspected to be off, contact us as soon as possible and do not throw the product out or away until photographs of the bottle front and back and the cork (where a cork is used) top and bottom are taken, so we can investigate the situation fully to ensure that the product is indeed off and liable to a refund.
