These Terms and Conditions (the "Terms and Conditions") are a legally binding agreement between you and AKA Spirits Inc, its affiliates, and its and their respective parents and subsidiaries (individually and collectively, "Company," "we," "our" or "us"), and governs your access to and use of the URL, www.tuckgin.com (the "Site") and other retailer websites, social media pages, accounts, and mobile applications owned by or licensed to us (collectively, the "Sites"), any order you place through the Sites and, as applicable, your use of the Products you purchase. Through use of the Sites, we provide an opportunity to buy alcoholic beverages and related products from Licensed Retailers in their respective states (collectively the “Services"). The sale and delivery of orders purchased by you will be executed and fulfilled by licensed third-party retail entities that hold valid licenses issued by state alcohol beverage agencies allowing for the legal sale of alcohol (the "Licensed Retailers" or "Licensed Retailer"). The Sites are directed to adults aged 21 or older and you must be at least 21 years of age to make a purchase through the Sites and to receive delivery of the products purchased, and a valid government-issued ID will be required upon delivery.
MINIMUM AGE REQUIREMENT
If you use the Sites, you represent and warrant that you are at least twenty-one (21) years of age and that the recipient of any alcoholic beverage purchase you may make is at least 21 years of age. In no event shall you use the Sites nor the Services, nor make a purchase or purchase a gift for someone else if you are under the age of 21, nor may you do any of the foregoing activities for the benefit, or on behalf, of any person under the age of 21. We may refuse to register any person, or service any order at any time, in our sole discretion. By using the Sites, including, without limitation, by participating in the Services, you hereby agree to the terms and conditions set forth below (the "Terms and Conditions").
IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU MAY NOT USE THE SITE, YOU SHALL NOT PLACE AN ORDER, AND YOU SHALL NOT USE ANY PRODUCTS SOLD VIA THE SITES. THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS INCLUDE A MANDATORY ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, WHICH MEANS THAT YOU AGREE TO SUBMIT ANY CLAIM AGAINST US TO BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION RATHER THAN PROCEEDING IN COURT. THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT ALSO INCLUDES A CLASS ACTION WAIVER, WHICH MEANS THAT YOU AGREE TO PROCEED WITH ANY CLAIM INDIVIDUALLY AND NOT AS PART OF A CLASS ACTION.
SALE OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES
Our role in the transactions contemplated by these Terms and Conditions is that of a marketer and service provider that enables you, the consumer, to purchase alcohol and related products from Licensed Retailers via the Sites, and to participate in the Services and/or any other product offers offered on the Sites. You acknowledge that all orders of alcohol and related products you place through the use of the Sites are processed and fulfilled by such Licensed Retailers, as the actual sellers of the Products, and not by us. Any purchase you make through the use of the Sites from the Licensed Retailers must be for personal consumption only and not for resale. In the unlikely event that a particular product is unavailable at time of shipping, the Licensed Retailer may substitute a product of similar style and of equal or greater value in your shipment.
ORDERS, SHIPPING, AND DELIVERY
If you are an adult over the age of 21, you may make an offer to purchase alcoholic beverages or associated non-alcoholic merchandise (the “Products”) using the Sites from the Licensed Retailers. Prices displayed on the Sites are the manufacturers’ or distillers’ suggested retail price, and prices of the Licensed Retailers may be less than or greater than the advertised price prior to checkout. Licensed Retailers may choose to accept or reject any offer to purchase the Products due to lack of availability, inability to verify your age, or any other reason. If your offer to purchase the Products is declined in full or in part for any reason, you will receive a refund for any portions of your order that are declined by the Licensed Retailer.
Unless otherwise indicated at the time of your purchase, shipping and handling fees are NOT included with your order and such fees will be added on to the price of your purchased products. Shipping dates and/or arrival times given are only estimates. Refunds are at the sole discretion of AKA Spirits Inc.
The Products purchased from the Sites will be shipped by a third party carrier. As a result, title and risk of loss or damage for such products will pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier.
All deliveries must be signed for by an individual who is capable of proving that he or she is 21 years of age or older by providing a valid form of identification at the time of delivery. If there is no individual 21 years of age or older to accept the delivery, the delivery will not be able to be completed at that time. After three failed delivery attempts, the package will be returned to us and your credit card will be charged an additional shipping fee in order to receive the package.
We recommend that if there is a possibility an individual 21 years of age or older is not available to sign for your package, you should contact your carrier and request the tracking number be routed to a local location or store for that carrier in order for you to pick up the package at that location. We reserve the right to refuse delivery for any reason. Packages cannot and will not be left unattended for any reason.
Your credit or debit card will be charged immediately upon checkout. We will not process orders that attempt to use an incorrect, expired, or over-the-limit credit card. However, in the event such an order is processed, we reserve the right to collect funds for any uncollected transactions owed to us. If you fail to pay any fees or charges when due or if a redelivery fee or restocking fee is imposed, we may charge such amount directly to the credit card identified in your Account and may suspend or terminate your access to the Services, including your subscription. You shall be 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. Your right to use the Services is subject to limits established by us and/or by your credit card issuer.
We use a third party payment service in lieu of directly processing your credit card information. By submitting your credit card information, you grant AKA Spirits Inc the right to store and process your information with the third party payment service, which it may change from time to time; you agree that AKA Spirits Inc will not be responsible for any failures of the third party payment service to adequately protect such information. All financial matters regarding your information are subject to the conditions of the third party payment service provider's terms of service. You acknowledge that we may change the third party payment service and move your information to other service providers that encrypt your information using secure socket layer technology (SSL) or other comparable security technology.
If you are a member of a periodic subscription, each period a Licensed Retailer will ship you a package with recipes, instructions, Products, and other ingredients required to mix craft cocktails (a "Subscription Program"). Each period of your subscription, the selection of Products may change. Accordingly, AKA Spirits Inc cannot guarantee that a selection of any such products available in a particular timeframe will be available in any subsequent timeframe.
The periodic subscription terms incorporate the terms of the particular periodic subscription package, as described in the subscription and checkout pages of the Sites. See the subscription page for a description of the current subscriptions and prices on the Sites. Note that any payment terms presented to you in the process of using or signing up for a paid subscription are deemed part of this Agreement.
AUTOMATIC SUBSCRIPTION RENEWAL
If you purchase a periodic subscription, you acknowledge and consent to being charged a recurring payment and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to the cancellation of your membership. We will send you an email at least 30 days prior to the renewal of your periodic subscription to remind you that the subscription will renew. Your subscription will be automatically renewed for successive renewal periods of the same duration as the subscription period originally selected, at the then-current non-promotional rate. You may cancel your ongoing membership by emailing your request to cancel, along with your name and account email to email@example.com. Each subscription automatically renews on the 7th of the month following the end of the previous period’s subscription. You must notify us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the 7th of the month following the end of the subscription period to cancel the subscription and the next period’s shipment. IF YOU DO NOT CANCEL PRIOR TO THE 7TH OF THE MONTH FOLLOWING THE END OF THE SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD, YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR RENEWING THE SUBSCRIPTION. All cancellation requests received after the 7th day of the month following the end of the subscription period will apply to the following subscription period. No prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period will be given.
We may terminate your membership, without notice, for any reason, whatever. If we terminate your membership or periodic subscription, we will refund prorated fees you paid for the periodic subscription that you have not yet received.
We may modify these Terms and Conditions at any time, at our sole discretion, without specific notice to you provided, however, that (a) any amendment or modification to the provisions applicable to dispute resolution shall not apply to any disputes incurred prior to the applicable amendment or modification; and (b) any amendment or modification to pricing and/or billing provisions shall not apply to any charges incurred prior to the applicable amendment or modification (as the Terms and Conditions in effect at the time of the subject dispute or incurred changes shall govern, as applicable). The latest version of these Terms and Conditions will be posted to the Site, and you should review these Terms and Conditions prior to using the Sites. Any such changes to these Terms and Conditions will become effective immediately and your continued use of the Sites and your Account following such notification will be deemed confirmation of your acceptance of such changes. You will not be eligible for any compensation because you cannot use any part of the Sites or because of a failure, suspension or withdrawal of all or part of the Sites.
