IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY OF THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, DO NOT ACCESS OR OTHERWISE USE THE WEBSITE OR ANY INFORMATION OR MATERIALS CONTAINED ON THE WEBSITE.

DESCRIPTION OF OPERATION

WineAlign is defined as a “wine marketing” business. As a “wine marketing” business, WineAlign does not handle, transport or possess the wine(s) it advertises on behalf of licensed wine agents on either its Website or other marketing mediums (such as electronic newsletters, printed material, etc…). WineAlign does not take payment from its customers for the wine(s) that that are ordered using the Website from a licensed wine agent. As a “wine marketing” business, WineAlign passes customer order information directly to the licensed wine agent for billing and fulfillment.

USER OBLIGATIONS

The sale of beverage alcohol is heavily regulated. You are responsible for compliance with all applicable laws, particularly in connection with the shipment of liquor, applicable to purchasers and consumers of liquor. Wine agents that advertise on WineAlign may not ship liquor outside of the Province of Ontario. You agree not to do any of the following while using the Website:
• Intentionally or unintentionally violate any applicable law or regulation including making an offer to purchase or delivery arrangement for wine by or on behalf of a person not of legal drinking age.
• Access, tamper with, or use nonpublic areas of the Website or WineAlign´s computer systems. Unauthorized individuals attempting to access or tamper with these areas may be subject to prosecution.
• Frame or link to the Website except as permitted in writing by WineAlign.

THE SALE OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES

WineAlign does not accept orders for alcoholic beverages on its Website from persons under the age of 19. By using the Website you are acknowledging that the person ordering a shipment of alcoholic beverages using WineAlign is 19 years in age or older. If you do not agree with these conditions of use you are prohibited from using the Website. If you intentionally or unintentionally misrepresent your age in order to provide alcohol to a person under the age of 19, WineAlign will report the infraction to the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) which may prosecute you fully to the extent allowable by law.

The AGCO has firm rules that apply to the sale and delivery of wine, most notably the requirement that alcohol can only be delivered to a person 19 years of age or older, who is not intoxicated. Therefore, the delivery agent representing wine(s) advertised at WineAlign is obligated to ensure your age of majority (two photo IDs are needed, if the agent requests confirmation) and must obtain your signature before handing over the order.

If your intention is to sell wine for profit for consumption or otherwise, you may only do so pursuant to a liquor licence issued by the AGCO. If your intention is to sell wine for consumption or otherwise at occasional special events only held outside a residence (a “Sale SOP”), or to provide for the consumption of wine at an indoor or outdoor event open to the public (a “Non-Sale SOP”) you may only do so pursuant to a Special Occasion Permit (“SOP”) issued by the AGCO. IT IS ILLEGAL TO SELL WINE IN OR FROM A PRIVATE RESIDENCE. When selling or providing for the consumption of wine under liquor licence or SOP, you are responsible for the safety and sobriety of the people attending the event as well as for compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
