How we use your personal information
To comply with licensing and other legislation, the website is only available to those aged 18 years and over. It is against the law for any person under the age of 18 to buy, or attempt to buy intoxicating liquor or for any person over the age of 18 to buy or attempt to buy intoxicating liquor for any person under the age of 18. We are committed to upholding the law as a retailer of intoxicating liquor. By placing an order you confirm that you and the recipient of the wine are at least 18 years old. Our couriers will also check the age of the recipient of an order and will request some form of ID if they feel necessary. If this is not satisfied they are not permitted to leave the wine. All names addresses, age and other personal information supplied by you during the order process are validated against appropriate third party databases.
By accepting these terms and conditions you consent to such checks being made. Personal information that you provide may be disclosed to a credit reference or fraud prevention agency which may keep a record of that information. This is done only to confirm your identity. A credit card check is not performed and your credit rating will be unaffected. If we cannot verify your age using this method we will contact you to ask for a driving licence number (or other evidence) in order to proceed with the order.
