Winery Terms of Use and Shipping Policy

1.         The WINERY Site

Welcome to the www.CoxCanyon.com website (the “Service”), a Washington State vineyard that owns/operates the Ellensburg Canyon Winery and an online wine shop/wine club for your convenience. The Service is owned by Cox Canyon Vineyards, Inc. (“Winery” or “us”).  These Terms of Use (“Terms”) apply to your use of the Service. If you wish to use the Service, even if you only browse the Service and do not register, you must agree to these Terms. If you do not agree to the Terms, any use of the Service by you is unauthorized, and you should stop accessing the Service immediately. Your continued use of the Service will constitute assent to these Terms.

2.         Legal Age Requirement

You must be at least 21 years of age to purchase wine using the Service. In addition, the person to whom wine purchased through the Service is delivered must be at least 21 years of age to accept delivery. When you place an order for wine through the Service, you represent to us that you and the intended recipient are at least 21 years of age. Upon delivery of any shipment containing wine, the recipient will be required to prove he or she is at least 21 years of age by showing a valid, government-issued identification with a picture of the recipient. We cannot ship wine to PO Boxes or APO/FPO addresses. We comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations regarding the sale of alcoholic beverages, and will actively cooperate in the prosecution of any person attempting to use the Service to violate applicable law. No deliveries of wine will be made except on the signature of a person having valid proof of age. No delivery will be made to a person who is visibly intoxicated. Because shipments containing wine require the signature of an adult, they cannot be left unattended by the carrier if no one is available to take delivery. For this reason, we recommend using a commercial business address such as your office to avoid failure of delivery. If the shipment is returned to us as undeliverable, the shipping charges are not refundable.

3.         Compliance with State and Local Laws

This site asks you to identify the location of the intended recipient of any wine products before you begin shopping. The reason for this is that shipments of wine are subject to restrictions under a wide variety of state and local laws. Some states prohibit shipments of wine from out-of-state sellers to recipients in the state. All our wine products are deemed sold in Washington and title passes to you in Washington. You can help ensure that the site provides correct information about price and availability by correctly identifying the location of the intended recipient before you begin shopping. For a current list of states eligible for shipping orders of wine made through the Service and restrictions that apply in particular locations, please click [here]. Your credit card will not be charged until we have determined that the proposed shipment complies with all applicable laws.

4.         Standard Shipping Terms

Delivery options and pricing will be discussed with you in our follow-up phone call in response to the BUY WINE order form you email to us. Orders shipped at standard ground rates should arrive within 10-15 days from the date of the order. Title to goods shipped in response to your order passes to you when the goods are delivered to the carrier, and you bear the risk of loss or damage to the goods in transit. Any product advertised or offered on our site may be temporarily unavailable, and availability information, if displayed, may not be current. If you place an order for a product that is out of stock, we will notify you promptly. We do not represent that product information on the site is accurate, complete or error-free. We reserve the right to limit quantities or refuse service to any customer.

5.         No Use of the Service for Commercial Purposes

You may not use the Service for any commercial purpose including but not limited to buying, selling, advertising or offering goods or services. When you order through the service, you represent to us that the goods are not intended for resale. If the Service allows you to create and post content, then creating and posting an occasional link to a third-party site that charges a fee for access, or otherwise is engaged in commercial activity, is not a violation of this policy, provided that you do not directly or indirectly receive any consideration for posting such link. You will not use any robot, spider, scraper or other similar automated means to access the Website for any purpose without our permission. You may not (i) impose an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our infrastructure; (ii) interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of the Service or any activities conducted using the Service; or (iii) bypass any measures we may use to prevent or restrict access to the Service.
