The following terms and conditions govern your access to and use of this site.

 

TERMS & CONDITIONS

Terms of Use

Welcome to www.hartandcru.com (the “Site”), which is owned and operated by HART WINE & BEVERAGE dba HART & CRU (“HART & CRU,” “Company,” “We,” or “Us”).  The following terms and conditions, together with any documents they expressly incorporate by reference, (collectively, these “Terms of Use”), govern your access to and use of this site.

1.              Agreement to Terms and Conditions.

 PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF USE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU START TO USE THIS SITE.  BY USING THE SITE OR BY REGISTERING AS A USER, YOU ACCEPT AND AGREE TO BE BOUND AND ABIDE BY THESE TERMS OF USE AND OUR PRIVACY POLICY, WHICH ARE INCORPORATED HEREIN BY REFERENCE.  YOUR USE OF THIS SITE AFTER THESE TERMS HAVE BEEN CHANGED WILL MEAN THAT YOUR AGREE TO BY BOUND BY THOSE CHANGES.  THE DATE THESE TERMS WERE LAST MODIFIED IS SET FORTH AT THE END OF THESE TERMS.  IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO AGREE TO THESE TERMS OF USE OR THE PRIVACY POLICY YOU MUST NOT ACCESS OR USE THIS SITE.

2.              The Site is offered and available only to users who are 21 years of age or older, and reside in the United States or any of its territories or possessions.

Concierge Service

The HART & CRU Site provides a concierge service that allows you to place orders for wine that we recommend.  HART & CRU does not hold an Ohio liquor permit, is not authorized to sell wine directly to you and does not hold itself out as having the ability or authority to do so.  As a concierge service and wine consultant HART & CRU places your wine order with duly authorized businesses that hold an Ohio alcohol retail sale permit (“Permit Holder”).  

Age Restrictions to Place Orders.  The minimum legal age in Ohio to order and buy alcohol is 21 years of age or older.  The Company will not consider or take wine orders from any person under the age of 21.  By using the Site, you represent and warrant that you are at least this legal age to form a binding contract with HART & CRU and meet all of the foregoing eligibility requirements.  If you do not meet all of these requirements, you must not access or use the Site.  By using this Site you are representing that the person ordering through HART & CUR and by purchasing and receiving a shipment of wine from the Permit Holder is over the age of 21.  You also agree that any wine purchased from the Permit Holder through this Site is intended for personal consumption and not for resale.  If you do not agree with these conditions of use, please do not use this Web Site or accept these conditions.

Every effort is made with a wine order placed through this Site that the wine is not delivered to anyone who is under the age of 21.

Terms for Wine Orders

1.              Placement of wine order.  This Site allows you to review recommendations for wine and to personally place an order to purchase wine.  HART & CRU acts as a concierge service to place your wine order with a Permit Holder who will sell you this wine.  Once your wine order is received and we confirm receipt of money to pay for this wine, which payment includes any taxes, shipping or handling fees, we will submit your order to an approved by an Ohio authorized liquor permit holder (“Permit Holder”).  Once your wine order is accepted and fulfilled by the Permit Holder you become the owner of this wine.  This wine sale takes place in the State of Ohio.

2.              Payment.  At the time you place your wine order you will be required to pay the purchase price that includes the price of the wine, any applicable federal, state or local taxes, the payment for shipping wine to you if you so choose, and the costs and expenses we charge to complete this wine order.  We accept payment electronically for orders placed through the HART & CRU Site by use of Square Space.  If you place your wine order through US by means other than this Site payment can be made through Pay Pal or Quickbooks Intuit or by check or certified check.  If you pay by check or certified check your order is not completed and processed until this form of payment clears standard banking procedures.  Unless we otherwise agree, we must receive your payment before we will accept your order.  

3.              Pricing.  The price you pay for the wine obtained through this Site is set by the Ohio Permit Holder as allowed and in conformity with Ohio law regarding the pricing and sale of wine.  HART & CRU aims to provide accurate pricing and product information.  It will, however, not be held responsible for any typographical or other errors in such communications.  Your order is subject to cancellation by HART & CRU or by the authorized Permit Holder, at the sole discretion of either party.
