Terms of Service
Acceptance of Terms.
If you use the Service on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind such entity and its affiliates to these Terms. In that case, the terms “you” or “your” shall also refer to such entity and its affiliates, as applicable. If you do not have such authority, or if you do not agree with the Terms, you may not use the Service. You acknowledge that these Terms are a contract between you and BeerMenus Inc., even though it is electronic and is not physically signed by you and BeerMenus, and it governs your use of the Service.
Modifications to this Agreement.
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to change, modify or otherwise alter these terms and conditions at any time.
Legal Drinking Age Notice.
To use this Service you must be of a legal drinking age in your country, province, or state of residence for the consumption of alcoholic beverages and live in a country where the consumption of alcoholic beverages is permitted.
Please exit this website immediately if you are not of a legal age in your place of residence for consuming alcoholic beverages or are in a country where consumption of alcoholic beverages is not permitted.
By submitting a menu, photo, or other content through the Service, you grant BeerMenus an unlimited worldwide right to republish the content in any online or printed form. BeerMenus reserves the right to modify, translate, republish, reproduce, and/or distribute any and all content submitted to the Service.
You are entirely responsible for all Content that you post, email or otherwise make available via the Service.
You agree that under no circumstances will BeerMenus be liable in any way for any Content or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content posted, emailed or otherwise made available via the Service.
You acknowledge that BeerMenus shall have the right (but not the obligation) in its sole discretion to refuse, delete or move any Content that is available via the Service, for violating the letter or spirit of the Terms or for any other reason.
Shopping for Alcoholic Beverages
BeerMenus does not sell, offer to sell or solicit sales of alcohol: our Service enables you to search online for alcohol and other products available for sale by licensed alcohol retailers that use BeerMenus' ecommerce service ("Retailers").
When you order, it is an offer to purchase from a Retailer. The total purchase amount may be authorized by your credit card company, but your offer is not accepted by the Retailer at that time. The Retailer reviews your order and decides whether to accept it. If the Retailer accepts your order, your credit card will be charged for the order amount by a third party credit card processing provider that will transfer and deliver funds to the Retailer.
BeerMenus does not guarantee delivery times and is not liable for the actions, products, or content of Retailers.
When you order, you agree that an individual 21 years of age or older, who is capable of proving he or she is 21 years of age or older, will pick up the order or be present to accept any delivery of alcoholic beverages.
In processing any offers to purchase alcoholic beverages, neither BeerMenus nor any officer, director, employee, shareholder or agent of BeerMenus shall be liable to you for any claims relating to the purchase, sale, or consumption of the alcoholic beverage or any consequences which may result thereof.
You shall indemnify and hold harmless BeerMenus and its directors, officers, employees, shareholders, agents, representatives, or Retailers (collectively, "BeerMenus Parties") from and against, for and in respect of, any and all claims, demands, losses, costs and expenses (including the cost of any investigation and reasonable attorneys' fees), damages, obligations, deficiencies, and liabilities, which arise or result from or are related to your improper or illegal: (a) processing of the alcoholic beverage order; (b) purchase of the alcoholic beverage(s); (c) receipt of the alcoholic beverage(s); or (d) consumption of the alcoholic beverage(s), and/or any consequences which result thereof.
Prices, taxes and fees
Retailers set the price of their products on BeerMenus, and Retailers may charge you additional fees such as delivery fees, redelivery fees, and restocking fees. Your order, including delivery fees, may be subject to tax. The amount of the tax depends on things like the products ordered, delivery location, and the legal obligations of the Retailer.
Changes to orders
If you wish to change your order after it has been placed, you may contact the Retailer, but we cannot guarantee the Retailer will accept your changes. If your order changes are accepted, you will be responsible for any difference in charges and fees resulting from the change(s).
Retailer right to refuse, cancel and adjust orders
A Retailer may refuse or cancel your order for any reason. If the product you want is not available, the Retailer will try to contact you or remove the unavailable item from your order based on the preference you selected when you placed your order. If you accept a substitution or an item is removed from the order, the order total will be adjusted accordingly.
Sometimes the law requires Retailers to limit the number or type of product(s) in your order. If this happens, the Retailer will contact you and offer changes to your order that comply with the law or cancel the order. If you accept the changes, the order total will be adjusted accordingly.
It is the responsibility of the Retailer, and any delivery provider they use, to verify identification and age, and to determine whether it is safe and legal to provide you alcohol. They may require a valid form of photo identification with birthdate and a signed acknowledgment of receipt at the time of delivery.
Alcohol cannot be left unattended—someone 21 or older must be present to accept and sign for it.
If we believe that your order is fraudulent or unlawful, we may alert the Retailer and suspend your use of the Service.
Retailer right to refuse delivery and charge restocking and redelivery fees
A Retailer or their delivery provider may refuse to deliver your order if they believe that delivering alcohol to you or the person accepting the delivery on your behalf is illegal or unsafe. If a delivery cannot be made for this or any other reason, you may be charged a restocking fee. Subsequent delivery attempts are at the discretion of the Retailer and are subject to redelivery fees.
At times, product information, such as images, descriptions, availability, and pricing will contain errors. If a Retailer identifies an error related to your order, they will contact you and either offer a reasonable substitute, remove an item from your order, or cancel your order. If you accept the changes, the order total will be adjusted accordingly.
If you receive a product that is not as described (or that you did not order), your sole remedy is to contact the Retailer and the Retailer will in its sole discretion either allow you to return the unused product (within the time period specified by the Retailer) for a refund or provide you with a reasonable substitute. If you accept the substitution, the order total will be adjusted accordingly. If you are not satisfied with the Retailer's remedy, you can contact email@example.com and we will do our best to help you resolve the situation.
Returns, refunds, and exchanges
Retailers and the laws in your state determine whether a return, refund or exchange is available to you. For example, you may be able to return a tainted or damaged product for a refund or credit, or exchange it for something else. In some states, you can exchange a product you bought (or received as a gift) if you want something else.
According to the Surgeon General, women should not drink alcoholic beverages during pregnancy because of the risk of birth defects. Consumption of alcoholic beverages impairs your ability to drive a car or operate machinery, and may cause health problems.
WARNING: No person shall sell or give away any alcoholic beverages to: any person under the age of twenty-one years; or any visibly intoxicated person.
It is a violation punishable under law for any person under the age of twenty-one to present any written evidence of age which is false, fraudulent or not actually his or her own for the purpose of attempting to purchase any alcoholic beverage.
To the extent you use a Service plan that is made available for a fee, you will be required to select a payment plan and provide BeerMenus accurate information regarding your credit card or other payment instrument. You will promptly update your account information with any changes in your payment information. You agree to pay BeerMenus in accordance with the terms set forth on the Site and in these Terms, and you authorize BeerMenus to bill your payment instrument in advance on a periodic basis in accordance with such terms.
Service plans that are paid monthly will automatically renew for additional months, and Service plans that are paid annually will automatically renew for additional years. You have the right to cancel your Service plan at any time by using the cancellation interface provided at https://www.beermenus.com/account. Your cancellation will take effect immediately, and you will not be charged again. But there will not be any prorating of unused time in the last billing cycle.
We want you to be happy with your Service plan. If you're ever unhappy and want a refund, email firstname.lastname@example.org. We do not guarantee a refund, but we'll do our best to make it right.
We reserve the right to change our prices in the future. If we increase our prices for your Service plan, we will provide notice of the change on the Site and in email to you at least 30 days before the change is to take effect. Your continued use of the Service after the price change goes into effect constitutes your agreement to pay the changed amount.
