Shipping & Returns
Please read these product terms and conditions carefully as they affect your rights and liabilities under the law and set out the terms under which Birthday Wine Gifts makes the products available to you.
The prices payable for the wine that you order are clearly set out in the web site. If, by mistake, we have under-priced an item, we will not be liable to supply that item to you at the stated price, provided that we notify you before we dispatch the item concerned. All prices are expressed inclusive of any VAT payable unless otherwise stated. The price of the items excludes the delivery charge.
If for any reason beyond our reasonable control, we are unable to supply a particular item, we will notify you as soon as possible. Vintage wines are obviously limited in availability. Whilst we make every effort to ensure that the advertised vintage is the one that we deliver, we cannot guarantee which vintage will be shipped to you. Your statutory rights are not affected.
There will be no contract of any kind between you and us unless and until we actually dispatch the goods to you. We may refuse to accept an order:
- Where goods are not available
- Where we cannot obtain authorisation for your payment
- If there has been a pricing or product description error
- If you do not meet any eligibility criteria set out in our terms and conditions
- If the order is to be delivered outside of UK & Ireland.
- If your order for personalised products contains content which is threatening, defamatory, obscene, indecent, seditious, offensive, pornographic, abusive, liable to incite racial hatred, discriminatory, menacing, scandalous, inflammatory, blasphemous, in breach of confidence, in breach of privacy or which may cause annoyance or inconvenience.
- If we believe your order is for commercial or other non-domestic concerns.
We cannot sell alcoholic products to anyone under 18. For this reason, we may refuse an order at our discretion and orders may not be transferred from the customer to any other person.
Delivery is normally made by Royal Mail. Delivery will be made to the address specified by you on the completed order form. Please note that we can only deliver wine within UK & Ireland. We do our best to secure delivery within 4 days of the date of your order (Note: we normally aim to deliver all orders within 2 days) but shall not be liable for loss occasioned by delay in delivery arising out of any cause beyond our control. If for any reason beyond our reasonable control, we are unable to supply a particular wine, we will notify you as soon as possible. All goods must be signed for on delivery by an adult aged 18 years or over. If no one of that age is at the address when the delivery is attempted the goods may be retained by the driver, in which case the driver will leave notification of attempted delivery and will telephone to rearrange or will return later that day. In these circumstances, if we have to return to deliver the goods, a further delivery charge may become payable.
