Riverwood Wine and Whiskey Club Terms and Conditions
Please read the following carefully
By completing the Membership Application you acknowledge and agree that you have read these Terms and Conditions (the “Terms”), understand them, and agree to be legally bound by them.
If you have any questions with respect to these Terms, please ask a staff member or contact us by email at owner@rivrwoodwinery or by calling the Winery at (816) 579-9797. Your acceptance of these Terms creates a binding contract governing the Terms of your membership in the Riverwood Winery (“Riverwood”) Wine and Whiskey Club (the “Club”) and no other statements, representations, materials or related information will alter or amend these Terms, except as specifically referenced in these Terms and such revisions to these Terms instituted by Riverwood as in accordance with these Terms.
- Membership Benefits; Accounts Subject to such limitations and exceptions as applicable, including as otherwise set forth in these Terms, Club members are entitled to receive the designated number of wines applicable to the particular membership (or such other designated wines as applicable to the particular membership of the member) and additional Club member benefits as provided from time to time by Riverwood. The member benefits are presented in more detail on the Wine and Whiskey Club Benefits page available under the Wine and Whiskey Club tab at Riverwood’s website located at https://www.riverwoodwinery.com (the “Website”). Only individuals, and not corporations or businesses, are eligible to enroll as members. Only one person can be enrolled per Club membership, and accounts under the same name and address will automatically be combined. Notwithstanding anything published to the contrary with respect to Club benefits, not all Club membership benefits are the same for all members, and some special promotional offers, benefits and communications may be based on geographic location, Club participation, information supplied by the member or the volume or type of purchases made by a member. You must present your Riverwood Wine and Whiskey Club membership number or phone number with every transaction in order to assure accurate tracking of your membership benefits. In order to be eligible for membership benefits your account must be (1) open, (2) in good standing and (3) current membership fees must have been paid. Abuse of Club membership (for example, by failing to follow the Terms, allowing others to use your membership number or other improper conduct as determined by Riverwood in its sole discretion) may result in termination of your membership and disqualify you from future Club participation. In the event of any issues or discrepancies regarding membership benefits, Riverwood must be notified within 90 days of your original transaction by calling (816) 579-9797.
- Fees. All fees for Club memberships and associated charges, such as shipping charges and other related charges, are automatically billed to your credit card. If your membership includes shipment of your wine, the wine is shipped and the charges are made on a quarterly basis. If your membership is a monthly membership with in-store pickup, fees are charged on the 26th of the month preceding the month when the wine is available for pickup. If you have purchased a gift membership, the fees for the entire period of the gift membership are charged monthly until the gift membership ends. All fees charged, including for gift memberships, are non-refundable except as expressly set forth in these Terms. Notwithstanding when fees are billed to a member, all Club benefits are activated promptly following registration in the Club.
- Membership Term, Changes and Renewal All memberships are on a month to month basis, and your membership automatically renews each month on the first day of the month. Members must remain active for a minimum of three months. If you wish to cancel your membership, you must let us know in writing at least 30 days before the billing period of the month preceding the month for which your cancellation is to be effective, and any fees already charged for any membership, are non-refundable. In addition, it is your responsibility to inform Riverwood of any changes to your membership record and information. Changes to your membership account and information, except for cancellations, may be submitted by calling the winery at 816-579-9797 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. All changes to your membership account and information must be received at least seven (7) days prior to any charge or shipment in order to be effective.
- Holds/Suspending a Membership We understand that things come up and that you may need to temporarily suspend your membership. You may place your membership on hold with a written notice to Riverwood Winery at least five days prior to the billing date. Please note that a hold on your membership also suspends all club benefits.
- Limitations; Legal Compliance Member discounts and benefits are not valid with other special offers or discounts offered by Riverwood. Member benefits are non-transferable. All goods, services and benefits provided by Riverwood, including wines, are only provided and/or shipped to such states in which Riverwood, through Vinoshipper, is licensed to provide such goods, services and benefits. Riverwood is not engaged in the shipping or importing of wines or other products into or from any state, country or other jurisdiction where it is not so licensed. Membership in the Club is void where prohibited, and by joining the Club, you represent that your membership in the Club and receipt and use of any goods, services or other items received through the Club does not and will not violate any applicable law or regulation. You agree to comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations, including without limitation, laws governing the possession and use of wine and alcoholic beverages. If any product is requested to be provided in or shipped to any state where Riverwood, through Vinoshipper, is not appropriately licensed, Vinoshipper can refuse such shipment. Wines will be provided or delivered only to persons who are at least 21 years old. In joining the Club, you represent to Riverwood that you are at least 21 years old and the person to whom delivery of any wine will be made. When your wine is picked up or delivered, the person receiving the product will be required to show identification proving Club membership and that he or she is at least 21 years old. Wines provided or delivered by the Club are not for resale and are for personal consumption only. Riverwood has the right to terminate or suspend the Club, or your membership in the Club, at any time and for any reason whatsoever, including, without limitation, following a change in law.
- Unavoidable Delay In the event of any circumstances outside of the control of Riverwood and which prevent, hinder or delay Riverwood from performing its obligations, including but not limited to acts of God, earthquake, flood, severe weather conditions, or other natural calamity, strikes, insurrection or acts of terror, governmental action or inaction, including delays or failure to issue permits and authorizations or an inability to obtain supply and materials or means of shipping, Riverwood ‘s obligations will be suspended for the term of such event or Riverwood Winery may elect to cancel the Club or Club membership for the affected members.
- Changes in Shipping; Changes in Law Shipping costs will vary by state and location and may be changed by Riverwood or Vinoshipper from time to time. In addition, due to the ever-changing nature of alcohol and other wine related laws, we may, from time to time, be advised that we are not able to complete delivery of a wine or ship wine to you. If we are unable to ship your wine to you, we will offer you the option to change your membership to an in-store pick up membership and you can pick up your wines at our stores. If that is not agreeable, you may cancel your membership in accordance with Section 4, above, and you may receive a refund of any membership fees paid for wine that we are not able to ship to you based on such a change in laws. In addition to changes in shipping charges, taxes and other related charges may change or may vary between states and locations, and retail wine prices and discounts will differ and vary from those related to wines provided by way of Club membership. Sales tax may also vary and Riverwood or Vinoshipper collects sales tax as required by various local and state taxing authorities. For sales tax purposes, the value for each bottle of wine provided by way of Club membership is $4.00, and membership fees and other membership benefits and imputed sales tax comprise the balance of the fees collected.
