Please read these terms and conditions carefully before ordering any products from our site.

Our registered office is at 8th Floor South Reading Bridge House, George Street, Reading, Berkshire, England, RG1 8LS, United Kingdom. Our VAT number is 981407117.
2. Ordering products
After placing an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have safely received it. This does not mean that your order has been accepted. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will send you a second email to confirm acceptance. The contract between us (Contract) will only be made when we send you this email to confirm acceptance and dispatch from the warehouse. We will send a third email when your order has been dispatched.
3. Age restriction
We will not sell products to anyone under the age of 18 years old. By placing an order you confirm that you are at least 18 years old. If our couriers are in any doubt about the age of the recipient on delivery, they will request some form of ID. If the person receiving the wine is unable to produce appropriate ID, unfortunately our couriers will be unable to leave the wine.
All items are subject to availability. We will inform you as soon as possible if, for any reason, the products you have ordered are not available.
If, following acceptance of your order, any Product becomes unavailable for any reason, we will use our reasonable endeavours to offer you an alternative Product. We will refund you
You are able to make changes to your order up to the point at which you click on the ‘submit order’
button on the Payment & Confirm section of the checkout process.
The price of any products will be as quoted on our site, except in cases of obvious error. Please be aware that these prices include VAT but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due.
Due to the large number of products on our site, it is always possible that some of the products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced, despite our best efforts. We will normally verify prices as part of our order-handling procedure so that, where a product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the product to you. If the product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the product, or reject your order and notify you of the rejection.
We are under no obligation to provide the product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you an order acceptance, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
We accept payment with the following credit or debit cards: Visa & MasterCard credit and debit cards.
We charge your credit or debit card [when we despatch your order. If payment is refused for any reason, then we may cancel your order. In this event, we will contact you to arrange an alternative payment method.]
Although we will make every reasonable effort to ensure your products are delivered within the set timescales, unfortunately we cannot guarantee that they will not be affected by unforeseen issues affecting our delivery partner. Under these circumstances, delivery charges will not normally be refunded.
When you have chosen the products you want to buy from us, the delivery address will default automatically to the billing address you have entered for your payment card. If you want us to deliver your order to a different address, you can choose this option as you go through the checkout process.
We will be taken to have delivered the products when these are delivered to your nominated delivery address.
The delivery charges will be as shown on the order form when you place you order.
You can find out the status of your order at any time by contact us at customerserviceATcellarlink.co.uk.
