1. Binding Agreement.  These terms and conditions (this "Agreement") is a legally binding agreement between you and Lifetime Vintage, Inc., a Delaware corporation, its affiliates, and its and their respective agents and representatives (individually and collectively, "Company," "we," "our" or "us"), and applies to your use of the URL, http://www.lifetimevintage.com, and all other websites, social media pages and accounts owned by the Company (individually and collectively, the "Websites"), and all mobile applications owned by the Company (together with the Websites, collectively, the "Company Sites"). Through the use of the Company Sites, the Company markets wines and related products directly to consumers, and offers consumers the opportunity to take advantage of the various services offered by the Company, including, without limitation, the opportunity to purchase wine and related products from Licensed Retailers (collectively, the "Wine Services").

2. Sale of Alcohol Beverages. The Company’s role in the transactions contemplated by this Agreement is that of a service provider that enables you, the consumer, to purchase wine and related products from those retailers and wineries holding valid licenses issued by state alcohol beverage agencies allowing for the legal sale of wine (the "Licensed Retailers") and to participate in the services and/or any other product offers offered on the Company Sites. You acknowledge that all orders of wine and related products you place through the use of the Company Sites are processed and fulfilled by such Licensed Retailers, as the actual sellers of wine, and not by the Company. For example, in California, the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control requires that all orders for wine must be placed with a licensed California wine retailer; the alcoholic beverage control regulators in other states have similar requirements.  The Company has chosen one or more Licensed Retailers to fulfill and ship accepted orders for wine.  For example, in the State of California, orders for wine may be fulfilled by City Vines, Inc. (which does business as Verve Wine). Any wine you purchase through the use of the Company Sites from the Licensed Retailers must be for personal consumption only and not for resale.  The Company Sites and the Wine Services may only be used to order wine for delivery in the United States.  Any order to purchase wine through the Company Sites and the Wine Services is void where prohibited by applicable law.

WARNING: Many food and beverage cans have linings containing bisphenol A (BPA) a chemical known to the State of California to cause harm to the female reproductive system. Jar lids and bottle caps may also contain BPA. You can be exposed to BPA when you consume foods or beverages in these containers.  For more information go to https://www.P65Warnings.ca.gov/alcohol.

5. Orders. 

a.  Sale by Licensed Retailers.  ALL WINES DISPLAYED ON THE COMPANY SITES ARE SOLD BY LICENSED RETAILERS. As such, each order submitted through the Company Sites is subject to acceptance by one or more Licensed Retailers.  The Company never takes legal title to any of the wine sold through the Wine Services, and thus, legal title to all wine sold through the Wine Services transfers directly from the applicable Licensed Retailer to you.   Wines available for purchase through the Company Sites may vary by state. All orders to purchase wine through the Company Sites are subject to this Agreement are subject to the availability of the particular wine from one or more Licensed Retailers with whom the Company has commercial relationships. The Company does not guarantee the availability of any wines displayed on the Company Sites, and does not guarantee the delivery of any ordered wines by the desired delivery date that you provide.  In the event that a particular wine is unavailable for purchase and delivery by the desired delivery date that you specify with your order, your order will not be fulfilled and your method of payment will not be charged for the wine. The Company and each Licensed Retailer have the right to refuse orders that do not comply with the laws in your state or for any other reason and your method of payment will not be processed for refused orders. The Company shall not be liable for any errors or omissions in product pricing, and in the event of any such error or omission, the Company and each Licensed Retailer reserve the right to cancel affected orders and refund any amounts previously charged to your method of payment as your sole remedy. The Company and each Licensed Retailer reserve the right to change product pricing at any time.

b.  Sale by the Company.  You may use the Company Sites to order products and services other than wine or other alcohol beverages that may only be sold by Licensed Retailers (“Non-Regulated Items”).  Non-Regulated Items may be sold or provided by the Company or third parties.   When you submit an order that includes Non-Regulated Items, you expressly agree and instruct us to (i) use your PII (including your method of payment) to process your payment for the Non-Regulated Items that are sold or provided by the Company, and (ii) forward your order, together with your PII (including your method of payment) to the third party(ies) who sell or provide Non-Regulated Items that are sold or provided by third parties.

d.  Purchase from Multiple Licensed Retailers.  Any single order that you place through the Wine Services may include wines that are available for sale from multiple Licensed Retailers.  Although one order may include wines from multiple Licensed Retailers, each Licensed Retailer must independently accept that portion of your order which pertains to the particular wine sold by such Licensed Retailer before a sale of that wine can occur. As such, when ordering from multiple Licensed Retailers in a single order using the Wine Services, some portions of your order may be accepted while other portions of your order may be rejected. Additionally, those Licensed Retailers may accept or reject your order for their respective wines at different times. BY PLACING AN ORDER, YOU ARE COMMITTING TO BUY EACH ITEM LISTED IN YOUR ORDER, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER ANY PORTIONS OF YOUR ORDER ARE REJECTED. Furthermore, wines ordered from separate Licensed Retailers may be delivered separately even though those wines may have been listed in a single order placed by you through the Wine Services. 

e.  Platform Fee.  You may be charged a fee for using the Company Sites and Wine Services to place an order for wine.  Any such fee is for use of the Company’s technology platform and access to the Content, and does not include any portion of the purchase price of wine, even if the amount of such fee is based upon or determined by reference to the purchase price of wine ordered using the Company Sites and Wine Services.  The Licensed Retailer may charge you this fee, using the payment method that you have provided, in connection with your payment of the purchase price of wine.  The Licensed Retailer in turn may, subject to compliance with applicable law, compensate the Company for giving you access to the Company’s technology platform, the Content, the Company Sites and the Wine Services.  The Company may also receive compensation from Third Party Servicers (including Licensed Retailers) in connection with orders that you place using the Company Sites and Wine Services.

f.  Cancellation.  You may cancel unshipped orders within 30 days of submission by contacting us, using the contact information provided in Section 6 (Contact Information) below and we will promptly cancel your order upon receipt of such a request. If you use a credit card in connection with your order, it will generally be charged by the end of the business day on which a Licensed Retailer accepts your order.

You will send your notice to us at the address provided in Section 6 ("Contact Information") above, and we will send our notice to you using the PII that you have provided to us. The notice must be sent by U.S. mail, Federal Express or UPS, with confirmation of delivery requested.

b. IF YOU AND WE ARE UNABLE TO RESOLVE OUR DISPUTE BY TALKING TO EACH OTHER, YOU AND WE EACH AGREE THAT WE WILL SUBMIT THE DISPUTE TO BINDING ARBITRATION, SUBJECT TO SECTION 20(F) BELOW. To the fullest extent permitted by law, any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to our relationship, this Agreement (including any dispute as to their breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity), our Privacy Policy [https://www.lifetimevintage.com/privacy-policy] (including any dispute as to its breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity), the Company Sites, any promotional offers or any product or service provided under or in connection with our relationship will be resolved exclusively by binding arbitration, subject only to Section 20(f) below. The arbitration shall be conducted before JAMS using a single arbitrator under the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures (or their replacement) that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated and under the terms set forth in this Agreement. The arbitrator shall be chosen by mutual agreement from a slate of ten (10) potential arbitrators proposed by either you or us and, if you and we are unable to agree, the arbitrator shall be chosen by the JAMS administrator. In the event of a conflict between the JAMS rules and this Agreement, this Agreement shall govern. Arbitration is not a court proceeding. The rules of arbitration differ from the rules of court and there is no judge or jury in an arbitration proceeding. YOU ARE HEREBY WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL OR TO GO TO COURT, other than as provided in Section 20(f) below. You may, in arbitration, seek any and all remedies otherwise available to you where you reside, other than as waived in this Agreement. You have a right to hire an attorney to represent you in arbitration. The arbitration shall permit the discovery of relevant information that is not privileged or protected.

c. The arbitration will be conducted at the JAMS office in or nearest to San Francisco, California, unless you and we mutually agree to a different location or to a telephonic arbitration. We shall evenly share the costs of the arbitration proceeding, including the arbitrator’s fees and case management fees. We will not, however, pay any portion of your attorney’s fees. To start an arbitration, you or we must do the following three things:

i. Write a Demand for Arbitration. The demand must include a description of the dispute and the amount of damages or other relief sought. You can find a copy of a Demand for Arbitration at www.jamsadr.com.

ii. Send two (2) copies of the Demand for Arbitration, plus the appropriate case management fee and reference to this Agreement to: JAMS, Two Embarcadero Center, Suite 1500, San Francisco, CA  941111-415-982-5267

iii. Send one (1) copy of the Demand for Arbitration to the other party.

d. The arbitrator’s decision shall be final and binding and may be enforced by any state or federal court that has jurisdiction; provided, however, that the arbitrator shall not have authority to make errors of law and any arbitration award may be challenged if the arbitrator does so. The arbitrator shall give a written statement of the disposition of each claim and the award shall provide a concise written statement of the essential findings and conclusions upon which it is based. You and we agree that the Federal Arbitration Act shall govern this agreement to arbitrate.

e. You and we agree not to join or consolidate claims in arbitration by or against the other. You and we also agree that you and we will not be entitled to bring any claim as a representative member of a class or in a private attorney general capacity against the other, or against our service partners, Licensed Retailers, retailers, licensors, officers, directors, agents, employees, affiliates or predecessors. Accordingly, you and we agree that the JAMS Class Action Procedures (or their replacement) will not apply in any arbitration between us. YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO BRING A CLASS ACTION OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CLAIM. You and we retain our respective rights to make any complaint to regulatory agencies or governmental investigators. A court may sever any portion of this Section 20 that it may find to be unenforceable, except for the prohibition on class, representative or private attorney general proceedings. You understand and agree that the waivers of rights in this Section 20, including the waivers of the rights to bring a lawsuit in court and to assert a class action, are knowing and voluntary.

f. In lieu of initiating an arbitration, you may instead choose in your sole discretion to file an individual action in a small claims court. If you do so, we do not agree to pay any of your fees or costs. The provisions of Section 20(e) above remain effective, even if you elect to file in a small claims court.

21. Waiver of Statutory Claims. By agreeing to this Agreement, you are giving up statutory claims or rights that you may have under your state’s laws, including claims for certain forms of relief or for attorneys’ fees. You agree that your waiver of any such laws does not violate your state’s laws.

22. Miscellaneous.

a. Severability. In the event that any provision of this Agreement (other than Section 20(e)) is declared void or unenforceable, such provision shall be deemed severed from this Agreement, and this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect unless its purpose cannot be effected absent the severed provision.

b. Entire Agreement. This Agreement, our Privacy Policy [https://www.lifetimevintage.com/privacy-policy] and the terms and conditions that may be posted on the Company Sites or of any promotional offers we make and you accept ("Company Sites Agreements") constitute the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersede all prior agreements, whether written or oral. You confirm that you have not relied on any representation except insofar as the same has expressly been made a representation in these Company Sites Agreements.

c. Notices. Unless otherwise specified to the contrary herein, all notices due under this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been made or given when any such notice is received, if personally delivered or sent by certified or registered mail; when receipt is electronically confirmed, if sent by facsimile or email; or the day after it is sent, if sent for next day delivery by a recognized overnight courier service. Electronic notices to us shall be sent to the email address provided in Section 6 (Contact Information) above.

This Agreement will inure to the benefit of the Company’s successors, assigns and licensors.

e. Relationship of the Parties. Nothing contained herein will be construed as creating any relationship of employer/employee, partnership, agency, joint venture, or otherwise between you and the Company, nor will this Agreement be construed as conferring on any party any express or implied right, power, or authority to enter into any agreement or commitment, express or implied, or to incur any obligation or liability on behalf of the other party.

f. Force Majeure. The Company shall not be liable for performance of its obligations under this Agreement if it is prevented or delayed from performing such obligations as a result of (i) any provision of any present or future law or regulation of any state or of the United States, (ii) any act of God, war, civil unrest or emergency condition, or (iii) any other circumstances beyond the reasonable control of the Company.

g. Waiver. Any waiver of either party’s rights hereunder must be in writing. No waiver by either party of any breach or default of any of the provisions contained in this Agreement and required to be performed by the other party shall be construed as a waiver of any succeeding breach of the same or of any other provision.

Through the use of the Company Sites, the Company markets wines and related products directly to consumers, and offers consumers the opportunity to take advantage of the various services offered by the Company, including, without limitation, the opportunity to purchase wine and related products from retailers and wineries holding valid licenses issued by state alcohol beverage agencies allowing for the legal sale of wine (the “Licensed Retailers”) (such services, collectively, the "Wine Services").  Certain capitalized terms used in this Privacy Policy are defined in our Terms and Conditions, which is accessible at http://www.lifetimevintage.com.

This Privacy Policy notifies users of the Wine Services of:

  1. What personally identifiable information the Company collects.
  2. What personally identifiable information third parties collect through the Company Sites.
  3. What organization collects the information.
  4. How the Company uses the information.
  5. With whom the Company may share user information.
  6. What choices are available to users regarding collection, use and distribution of the information.
  7. What measures the Company takes to protect the information under its control.
  8. How users can correct any inaccuracies in the information.

If you feel that the Company is not abiding by this Privacy Policy, as it may be amended from time to time, please contact the Company by email at team@lifetimevintage.com or by mail at Lifetime Vintage, Inc., 42 Digby Street, San Francisco, CA  94131. 

1. Information collection and use. The Company is the sole owner of the information collected through the Company Sites. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in any way that varies from what is disclosed in this Privacy Policy. The Company collects information from users at several different areas on the Company Sites.   This information may include your name, date of birth (to verify your age), address (both mailing and shipping address), telephone number, email address, IP address (we may also derive your approximate location from your IP address), payment method information including payment card data (including your credit card number, cardholder name, billing address, expiration date and security code), wine preferences, dates and information regarding the occasion(s) for which wine is being given as a gift, and information regarding wines purchased by others for you.

You may receive information regarding new features, services and special offers that we think you may find valuable. We may also share information with carefully selected business partners. These businesses may use the information we share to provide valuable opportunities and offers. If you'd like to opt out of future mailings from the Company, send us an email at team@lifetimevintage.com. When we present you with the opportunity to receive marketing opportunities from our business partners we will not automatically subscribe you for these promotions, rather we will provide you with the opportunity to opt-in to these third party marketing programs.

You may also access the personally identifiable information you have submitted to us by selecting Your Account and editing the information as it exists in our system currently. You are also able to access your information in order to update or delete it by sending us an email at  team@lifetimevintage.com. We will respond to your request within a reasonable time frame.

We will retain your information for as long as your Account is active or as needed to provide you access to the Wine Services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

2. Registration. You must create an Account prior to registering your preferences for wines using the Company Sites. To submit an order to purchase wine through the Wine Services, users are required to provide various items of personally identifiable information (i.e., name, phone number, email address, date of birth, and method of payment information) and select a password. This information is necessary in order for us to verify the eligibility of users to access the Wine Services and to contact users about the Wine Services and orders submitted using the Company Sites.  We may share this information with Licensed Retailers to verify the eligibility of a user to purchase wine and for the Licensed Retailer to complete the sale of wine to the user.  Your preferences for wines to be purchased by others as a gift to you, together with the dates and other information regarding the occasion(s) for which such gifts are given (e.g. wedding), will be accessible to other users of the Company Sites and Wine Services, and will not be private.  Information regarding wines purchased by others as gifts to you using the Company Sites and Wine Services will be accessible to other uses of the Company Sites and Wine Services, and will not be private.

3.  Referrals. If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about the Wine Services or the Company Sites, we will ask you for your friend’s name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the Company Sites. Your friend may contact us at  team@lifetimevintage.com to request that we remove this information from our database.

4.  Ordering.  Order forms request data from users including: contact information such as name and address; payment method such as credit card number, expiration date, billing address, and billing phone number. This information is used to verify that a customer is of legal age, to bill the customer for certain fees to use the Wine Services, and for Licensed Retailers to complete the sale of wine pursuant to orders and ship the wine as instructed in such orders.  If we or a Licensed Retailer encounter difficulty when processing an order, this contact information is used to contact the user. Payment method information is stored in a secure area and encrypted for protection.  Other than being shared with Licensed Retailers, it is not sold or shared with anyone else under any circumstances.

5.  Gift Recipients.  We collect contact information, such as name, shipping address and phone number, for gift recipients to ensure correct delivery of wine that is purchased as a gift. Other than sharing this information with Licensed Retailers (who in turn may share this information with shipping agents), we do not sell, share or rent any contact information for gift recipients with third parties. We do not sell or rent any personally identifiable information that you provide to us regarding gift recipients, but they may receive offers from us or Licensed Retailers highlighting new features, new products and services and special offers we or Licensed Retailers think they will find of interest. We may also send marketing offers to gift givers and gift recipients on behalf of ourselves and our business partners. In connection with such offers, we allow gift givers and gift recipients to opt out of receiving future marketing-related mailings from us. Gift recipients may contact us at  team@lifetimevintage.com to request that we remove their email from our database.

6.  Tracking Technologies.  We and our partners use cookies or similar technologies to analyze trends, administer the Company Sites, track users’ movements around the Company Sites and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies on an individual as well as aggregated basis. We use cookies for our shopping cart, to remember users’ settings and certain preferences and for authentication. Users can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level. If you reject cookies, you may still use the Company Sites, but your ability to use some features or areas of the Company Sites may be limited.

7.  Behavioral Advertising.  We may partner with one or more third parties to either display advertising on the Company Sites or to manage our advertising on other sites. Our third party partners may use technologies such as cookies to gather information about your activities on the Company Sites and other sites in order to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests.

8.  Log Files.  As is true of most web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data.

We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to improve services we offer you, to improve marketing, analytics, or site functionality.

9.  Sharing.  We will not sell, share, or rent personally identifiable information about you to others in any way that varies from what is disclosed in this Privacy Policy.

We will share aggregated demographic information with our business partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personally identifiable information that can identify any individual person.

We may also share your physical address with carefully selected business partners. These businesses may use the information we share to mail you valuable opportunities and offers. You can opt out of future postal mailings from our business partners by sending an email to  team@lifetimevintage.com.

Licensed Retailers use outside shipping companies to ship orders, and both we and Licensed Retailers use credit card processing companies to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

We value your privacy, and will never release any Account information to anyone outside of the necessary core groups that help our business function unless our customers give us the authority to do so.

10.  Legal Disclosures.  We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial or bankruptcy proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request, and to any other third party with your prior consent to do so.

11.  Links.  The Company Sites contain links to other websites. Please be aware that the Company is not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave the Company Sites and to read the privacy statements of each website that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by the Company Sites.

12.  Social Media Widgets.  Certain of the Company Sites include social media features (e.g. the Facebook Like button or other widgets or interactive mini-programs that run on the Company Sites). These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on a Company Site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on the Company Sites. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

13.  Single Sign On.  Certain of the Company Sites may allow you to log in using sign-in services such as Facebook Connect or an Open ID provider. These services will authenticate your identity and provide you the option to share certain personally identifiable information with us such as your name and email address to pre-populate certain forms. Services like Facebook Connect give you the option to post information about your activities on certain of the Company Sites to your profile page to share with others within your network.

14.  Emails.  If a user wishes to subscribe to our emails, we ask for contact information such as name and email address. We may use your contact information for purposes other than sending you promotional materials. For example, we may use your information to complete transactions requested by you, or to send you administrative communications about any Account you may have with us or about future changes to this Privacy Policy. You may also unsubscribe from promotional emails by emailing us at team@lifetimevintage.com.

15. Security.  When our order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted with encryption software that is generally accepted in the industry. On a secure page such as our order form, the lock icon on the browsers switches to locked, as opposed to unlocked mode, and back to open mode when you move to a non-secure page.

We also do everything in our power to protect user data offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information, and are required to lock their workstation computer when they leave their workstation.

All employees are kept up to date on our security and privacy practices. Periodically and whenever new policies are implemented, our employees are reminded about the importance of keeping customer data secure and safe at all times. The servers with personally identifiable information are stored in a locked and secure environment.

If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to team@lifetimevintage.com.
