WHAT WE SELL AND WHAT WE DON’T SELL
ANY ALCOHOL INCLUDED IN A KIT ORDERED THROUGH THE SITE IS BEING SOLD TO YOU FROM A THIRD PARTY LIQUOR MERCHANT. ACC DOES NOT SELL ALCOHOL. ACC ONLY PROCESSES ORDERS FOR ALCOHOL. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ANY ALCOHOL INCLUDED IN A KIT PURCHASED THROUGH THE SITE IS BEING PURCHASED BY YOU FROM THE THIRD PARTY LIQUOR MERCHANT AND IS NOT BEING PURCHASED FROM ACC.
Each subscription is delivered to the customer-designated location. Each subscription initiation and subsequent shipment is confirmed by email to the customer. By selecting a subscription plan you agree to pay ACC the monthly subscription fees for the service and additional usage fees indicated for that subscription. Our subscription packages will auto-renew every month at the price originally agreed to unless canceled. You may cancel your subscription at any time. Subscriptions canceled before the 1st of any month will not be charged. Subscriptions canceled after the 1st will take effect the following month. Payment for Services will be made by a valid credit card accepted by ACC, unless other payment arrangements have been made. You hereby authorize ACC to charge your credit card for such amounts according to your subscription.

ORDERING AND DELIVERY
When you sign up to become a monthly Subscriber, your subscription will automatically renew until you cancel it. This means that you subscribe to order, pay for and receive shipments of cocktail boxes from ACC and order, pay for and receive shipments of alcohol from Retail Licensee. You can skip an order and delivery or cancel your membership at any time. Please visit the LogIn section of the Website on instructions on how to do so. Please be aware, however, that because we and our Retail Licensee plan, purchase, and prepare our cocktails in advance, both the skipping service and cancellation request require advanced notice to ACC, as set forth more specifically on the Website. If you miss these deadlines, you will be responsible for paying the applicable amount, and the cancellation will take effect on the next shipment.
To maintain the highest quality and integrity of the cocktail ingredients after delivery, we recommend that you immediately refrigerate the non-alcoholic items when you receive them. If you are not home when a delivery arrives, our delivery service will leave the package with an adult over 21 years of age with proper identification who is willing to accept the package on your behalf.
If no recipient over 21 years of age with proper identification is available to accept the package on your behalf, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to contact you and reschedule the delivery (in which case our standard redelivery fee shall apply). If we are unable to reschedule the order for any reason, both of your orders, for your ACC non-alcohol ingredients and for your purchase of liquor from our Retail Licensee, will be canceled and your money will be refunded, less the applicable re-stocking fees for the orders and the redelivery fee.
Anyone over 21 years of age with proper identification at the delivery address who receives the delivery is conclusively presumed to be authorized to receive the delivery. In the case of inclement weather, we will deliver your order as soon as reasonably possible when the conditions permit.
