Photo identification will be required if a person appears under 25, to prove that they are over 18 years old. An age restricted item can be delivered to another adult over the age of18 at the same address. Delivery to a neighbour or nominated safe place location is not available for these items. If an adult over the age 18is not available at the address, or if an adult has not been able to show valid photo identification under the Challenge 25 approach', the item will be returned to retailer for re-delivery the following day.

We carefully monitor the content of the website to help ensure that no illegal/prohibited products are listed, however we do not warrant the offerings of, any of these businesses or individuals. DrinkSorted does not assume any responsibility or liability for the actions, product/item, and content of all of these or any other third parties. Drinksorted does not supply you with ANY products a third party is involved in all your transactions, and we may share your information related to those transactions with that third party. You should carefully review our privacy policy for more information on how your information is shared.

14. DrinkSorted's Role

14.1 DrinkSorted allows third party vendors to list and sell their products on DrinkSorted and provides a platform for vendors and buyers to negotiate and complete transactions. DrinkSorted is a venue provider helps facilitate transactions that are carried out on the DrinkSorted platform including the processing of card transactions on behalf of our partner vendors.

14.2 Your contract is with the retailer not Drinksorted. You accept as part of these conditions that that DrinkSorted is only an agent for your purchase.

14.3 We do not give any guarantees in respect of products offered and delivered from the retailers. If there is an issue with the product please notify us and we will take this up with the retailer on your behalf.

14.4 Stock listings are checked regularly, we offer no guarantee that items are in stock and out of stock by the time the order is processed digitally.

15. Payment

15.1 VAT and delivery costs: Prices will be as quoted on the Website. These prices include VAT but may exclude delivery costs and any administration or service charge imposed by the retailer, e.g. gift wrapping. These will be added to the total amount due where applicable.

15.2 Incorrect pricing: This Website contains a large number of products and it is possible that some of the menus may include incorrect prices. If the correct price for an Order is higher than the price stated on the Website, we will normally contact you before the relevant Order is dispatched. In such an event, neither we nor the relevant retailer under any obligation to ensure that the Order is provided to you at the incorrect lower price or to compensate you in respect of incorrect pricing. Also note in Scotland Minimum pricing laws are applicable. See 17 below.

15.3 Payment methods: Payment for Orders must be made by an accepted credit or debit card through the Website or in cash to the Retailer at the point of delivery to you.

15.4 Card payments: If you pay by credit or debit card, you may be required to show the card to the driver at the time of delivery as proof of identification also an age ID identification will always be required under our challenge 25 policy, so that they can check that the card corresponds with the receipt data for the Order. Please note that from time to time there may be delays with the processing of card payments and transactions; this may result in payments taking up to sixty (60) days to be deducted from your bank account or charged to your credit or debit card.

15.5 Credit and discount vouchers: A credit or discount may apply to your Order if you use a promotional voucher or code recognised by the Website and endorsed by DrinkSorted, and you pay for any balance by credit or debit card. Please refer to our Voucher Terms & Conditions for the full terms and conditions applicable to the use of credit and discount vouchers. Please note that because of standard banking procedures, your bank or card issuer will initially "ring-fence" the full amount of the Order (before any credit or discount) in your account for between 3 to 5 working days (or longer, depending on your bank or card issuer), and this amount will therefore be unavailable in your account for that period. The credit or discount will be applied at the time your bank or card issuer transfers the funds for your Order to us, at which point the credit or discounted amount will not be transferred to us and will instead be released by your bank or card issuer back into your available balance. You acknowledge and agree that neither we nor the relevant Retailer will be responsible or liable to you in relation to this delay by your bank or card issuer in the release of funds back into your account.

15.6 Rejected Orders and refunds: Because of standard banking procedures, once you have submitted an Order that you are paying for by credit or debit card and your payment has been authorised, your bank or card issuer will "ring-fence" the full amount of your Order. If your Order is subsequently rejected by the Retailer (as described in paragraph 4.4 above) or cancelled for any other reason, your bank or card issuer will not transfer the funds for the Order to us, and will instead release the relevant amount back into your available balance. However, this may take between 3 to 5 working days (or longer, depending on your bank or card issuer). You acknowledge and agree that neither we nor the relevant Retailer will be responsible or liable to you in relation to this delay by your bank or card issuer in the release of funds back into your account.

16.Complaints Procedure

16.1 In the case where you have a complaint, dispute, concern or query related to a card payment (or anything else), please contact us and we will be able to provide support for you.

17. Pricing & Availability

17.1 All prices are inclusive of legally applicable VAT but this may exclude delivery charges (some vendors / self-employed delivery drivers may not be VAT registered and you should contact the vendor directly if you require more information surrounding this). As DrinkSorted are not a party to the sale, we are unable to issue VAT receipts, invoices or other documentation related to the sale other than what is provided in your confirmation E-Mail and the My Account area of the site and you should contact the vendor directly if you require additional information / documentation.

17.2 We list availability information for items sold by us on the website. Beyond what we say on that page or otherwise on the website, we cannot be more specific about availability. As your order is processed by the retailer, they will inform you as soon as possible if any items you order turn out to be unavailable and you will of course not be charged for those items.

17.3 Please note that unless otherwise stated on the website, delivery estimates are just that. They are not guaranteed delivery times and should not be relied upon as such.

17.4 Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items present on our interactive menus may be mispriced. If we have made a mistake and a product's correct price is higher than the price on the website, we may either contact you before fulfilling your order to request whether you want to buy the product at the correct price or cancel your order. If a product's correct price is lower than our stated price, we will refund the discrepancy and process your order as normal.

18. Product Information

Unless expressly indicated otherwise, DrinkSorted is not the manufacturer of the items sold on this website. While we work to ensure that item information on our website is correct, actual item packaging and materials may contain more and different information to that displayed on our website.

We recommend that you do not rely solely on the information presented on our website. Please always read labels, warnings and directions provided with the items before consumption.

19. Cancellation

19.1 The items sold on DrinkSorted are made to order so please note that once you have placed your order and your payment has been authorised you will be able to cancel your order. The Delivery charge will still be applicable. DrinkSorted reserves the right to cancel any order and will notify you immediately of any such cancellation.

19.2 In the case where you have submitted an order using a credit or debit card and your payment has been authorised, due to standard banking procedures your bank or card issuer will "ring-fence" the full amount of your order. If your order is subsequently cancelled, this may take between 3 to 5 working days (or longer, depending on your bank or card issuer) to be returned to your account. You acknowledge and agree that neither we nor the relevant vendor will be responsible or liable to you in relation to this delay by your bank or card issuer in the release of funds back into your account. See 15 above.

20. Delays in Transmission of Orders

20.1 You accept that there may be in some cases a short delay in communicating your order to the vendor due to events outwith our reasonable control, such as equipment failure at the vendor premises, an extremely high volume of orders for that particular vendor (your order will be placed into a queue in this situation) or for the management and prevention of fraud risk. Under normal circumstances orders are delivered to the vendor electronically in real-time.

21. Our Liability

We will attempt to limit the frequency and duration of any such suspension or restriction.

21.2 DrinkSorted will not be responsible for (i) losses that were not caused by any breach on our part, or (ii) any business loss (including loss of profits, revenue, contracts, anticipated savings, data, goodwill, business opportunity, or wasted expenditure), or (iii) any indirect or consequential losses that were not foreseeable to both you and us when you commenced using the DrinkSorted Services.

21.3 We will not be held responsible for any delay or failure to comply with our obligations under these conditions if the delay or failure arises from any cause which is beyond our reasonable control.

21.4 Nothing in these conditions limits or excludes our responsibility for fraudulent representations made by us or for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or wilful misconduct.

21.5 Limitation of liability: Subject to clauses in this terms and conditions, our total liability to you in respect of all other losses arising under or in connection with the Website or our services, apps, or your use of it, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, shall in no circumstances exceed twice the value of your Order or £100, whichever is lower.
