Fees: 

Fees for Memberships, wine dinners and wine tastings must be paid online at the Website through a third-party online portal; the Company will not retain a Member’s credit card information.  All fees for Memberships and associated charges are automatically billed to the Member’s credit card, except that gift Memberships are billed to the credit card of the person ordering the gift Membership.  By becoming a Member, the Member authorizes the Company to charge the Member’s credit card on the first of every month in which wines will be provided for pickup.  All fees charged are non-refundable except as expressly set forth in these Terms of Use.  Notwithstanding when fees are billed to a Member, a Member will not receive his or her monthly wines until the next month after his or her Membership commences. 

Membership Period and Renewal:

All Memberships are on a period selected at the time of signup by the Member.  The Membership automatically renews each period of selected Membership, subject to cancellation as provided in these Terms of Use.

Cancellation; Changes by Member:

Subject to the terms below in this section, a Member may cancel his or her Membership at any time, except that gift Memberships cannot be cancelled or refunded.  Each Member is responsible for maintaining accurate and updated personal information in his or her Membership records. A Member may make changes to his or her Membership account and information, change Membership levels, edit payment details and make other changes to his or her Membership, including cancelling a Membership, by submitting the change or request via email to the Company’s E-mail Address.  All changes, including Membership cancellations, must be received at least thirty (30) days prior to any charge in order to be effective to avoid that charge.  Fees will be due for any cancellations or changes not submitted prior to the Club’s processing time for a particular charge.   In the event of any issues or discrepancies regarding Membership benefits, the Company must be notified within thirty (30) days of the Member’s original transaction by contacting the Company at the E-mail Address.

Pickup of Wine; Changes in Pickup Schedule:

E-Mails will be sent to Members notifying them know when their wines are ready to be picked up at the Member’s preferred pickup location.  Pickup locations are limited to those Brown Jug locations in Alaska designated by the Company on the Website in its sole discretion.  A Member may, via the Website, designate another person to pick up the Member’s wine as long as the designated person provides identification at the time of pickup proving that he or she is the designated person and is at least 21 years old.  If the Member does not pick up the wine within sixty (60) days after notification by the Company, the Member’s order for that month will be canceled and the Member will have no right to a refund of any money paid for such order, and the Company may thereafter return, sell or otherwise dispose of the wine as it sees fit in its sole discretion.

Damage/Returns:

If the Member’s wine, at the time of pickup, is received damaged, spoiled or otherwise defective in condition, the Member must within thirty (30) days of pickup contact us at the Company’s E-mail Address regarding the damage and the Company may, in its sole discretion, provide a replacement wine or a refund for the wine, which is the Member’s sole and exclusive remedy for damaged or defective product.

Wine Dinners and Wine Tastings:

Reservations for the Club’s wine dinners and wine tastings and dinners must be made online on the Website, and must be paid for online as directed on the Website at the time reservations are made.  Members agree that all fees charged for wine dinners and wine tastings are non-refundable if reservations are cancelled within fifteen (15) days of the date of the dinner or tasting. If reservations are cancelled prior to fifteen (15) days before the dinner or tasting, a full refund will be issued to the person making the reservation. Please allow up to thirty (30) business days for the refund to post the credit card charged for reservations. All wine dinner and tasting dates/times are subject to change. If reservations are made prior to the change of date/time, there will be a notice sent to all reservations that the date/time has changed ensuring that the changes are able to be accommodated by the party who made the reservation. If the party is unable to uphold the change in date or time, a full refund of fees will be issued to the person who made the reservation. The refund will be credited back to the credit card which was used at the time of securing the reservation. Due to wine dinners and wine tastings having a limited capacity of attendees, if reservations are made through the Website and the Company is unable to honor the reservations, a full refund will be issued.

(a) The Dispute will first be submitted in writing to the Member and a designated representative of the Company who shall attempt to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days of such submittal.

(b) If good faith negotiations among the Member and the Company’s representative are unsuccessful within the 30-day period provided in subsection (a), and either party wishes to continue to pursue the Dispute, the parties agree to resolve the dispute by binding and final arbitration. The arbitration will be conducted by a single arbitrator selected by the agreement of the parties. The arbitrator will be a person who is legally trained and is independent of either party.

Miscellaneous: 

(a) If any provision of these Terms of Use is found to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any respect, in whole or in part, such provision will be modified so as to be valid, legal or enforceable as the case may be, or if it cannot be so modified, severed from these Terms of Use, and these Terms of Use as so modified will remain in full force and effect.

(b) These Terms of Use do not create, and must not be construed as creating, any rights or interests enforceable by any person not a party hereto.

(c) These Terms of Use contain the entire understanding and agreement of the parties on the subject matter of these Terms of Use.  No prior or contemporaneous statement or representation, whether oral or written, has been relied upon by the parties, except as expressly stated in these Terms of Use.  These Terms of Use supersede all previously published terms and conditions in their entirety. 

(d) The provisions in these Terms of Use bind and inure to the benefit of the parties and their successors and permitted assigns. 

(e) Time is of the essence in each and every provision in these Terms of Use. 

(f) The failure of either party to insist upon performance of any provision in these Terms of Use  or to exercise any right, remedy or option provided in these Terms of Use, will neither be construed as a waiver of the right to assert any of the same or to rely on any such provisions at any time thereafter, nor in any way affect the validity of these Terms of Use. 

(g) The captions and headings used in these Terms of Use are solely for the convenience of the parties and must not be used in the interpretation of the text of these Terms of Use. 

(h) Each party has read and agreed to the specific language of these Terms of Use and has had the opportunity to discuss these Terms of Use with their respective legal counsel; therefore, no conflict, ambiguity, or doubtful interpretation will be construed against the drafter.

For example, we may retain a copy of the e-mail and any Personal Information the Member may have supplied in the e-mail to help us evaluate and improve this Website and the information we provide, train our employees and provide better service to our users.
