Law Governing VS and the VS website
We are mainly concerned that you understand and accept our Product, Pricing and Shipping Terms and Conditions and those that apply in these three situations:
1. Minors visiting and engaging the site.
2. Unauthorized copying and use of our text and images.
3. Somebody using our site to talk mean, dirty or actionable about any person, company or organization.
Here are all the terms and conditions in legalease that apply to your engagement with and use of the contents of the VS website:
Product VS sells “vegan” wine through this website. That means wines that have not been filtered or fined with any animal products. VS takes all necessary and appropriate actions to determine and insure that our wine is “vegan” and that our product descriptions are accurate. But while we work hard to be completely accurate, we cannot, however, guarantee that the information provided to us by any third party is truthful or accurate. If you find that a product is not as described, your remedy is set forth in our Shipping Policy on this website.
* Pricing Policy and Sales: The VS Pricing Policy is limited to wines that are ordered and sold through the VS website and shipped by VS. While most of our customers are individuals, VS can sell to other vendors. VS has no control over the pricing or practices of third parties and any purchases made from such a third party are not covered by this VS Pricing Policy.
First, because VS endeavors to offer vegan wines at very competitive prices, the offer of any wine is limited to our present supply. In other words, no back orders. And our prices do not reflect any applicable sales tax.
Except where noted otherwise, the List Price displayed for products on our website represents the full retail price listed on the product itself, suggested by the manufacturer or supplier, or estimated in accordance with standard industry practice; or the estimated retail value for a comparably featured item offered elsewhere. The List Price is a comparative price estimate and may or may not represent the prevailing price in every area on any particular day. For certain items that are offered as a set, the List Price may represent “open-stock” prices, which means the aggregate of the manufacturer’s estimated or suggested retail price for each of the items included in the set.
* Shipping: Product Satisfaction and Loss: VS takes orders over this website and fills those orders by shipping only, pursuant to our Shipping Policy. You agree to the terms of the Shipping Policy when you make a purchase through this website. In accordance with that Shipping Policy, you accept the risk of loss for wine purchased upon our delivery of your order to our common carrier. Please review the Shipping Policy concerning your satisfaction with your purchase.
