Legal age requirement

· Customer is at least of Legal Age and;
· The person to whom any wine will be delivered is also of Legal Age;
· No delivery shall be made to a visibly intoxicated person.
Although the Marketplace is optimized for wine, MyVinum accepts the existence of other types of ads, regarding other sort of alcoholic beverages.
Marketplace wine condition
Every bottle traded via the Marketplace is the responsibility of the User. MyVinum does not warrant any bottle's suitability for consumption as it is not possible to determine the condition in which the wine was stored or to know with certainty whether a particular wine has passed its useful life. Please check related sites for insights on the current drinkability of a particular wine.
After trade acceptance by User, a transaction may be cancelled in several ways:
· Failure to ship/transfer the Items between Users.
· Voluntary cancellation before completion of the trade (for any reason).
· Failure of any bottle to meet the standards of the Users.
Liability for transportation and returns
MyVinum's role is a Marketplace manager and shall not be liable for any expenses Users may incur regarding item transportation and returns.
While MyVinum shall make a diligent effort (such as User Ratings) to assess the condition of any wine advertised in our Website, it is not possible to know the complete provenance of every wine, especially older vintages.
Price changes and availability
All prices associated with wine ads in our Marketplace, are the responsibility of Users and therefore subject to change without notice. MyVinum is not responsible for typographical errors in User ads.
Occasionally, computer system issues, human errors, process faults, or other causes result in unintentional ads appearing on our website. MyVinum reserves the right to correct or delete such unintentional ads.
