LIMITATIONS ON OUR LIABILITY TO YOU
 
Nothing in these terms of use excludes or limits our liability for death or personal injury arising from our negligence, or our fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation, or any other liability that cannot be excluded or limited under English law.
 
To the extent permitted by law, we exclude all conditions, warranties, representations or other terms which may apply to our website or any content on it.
 
We will not be liable to any user for any loss or damage, whether in contract, tort, breach of statutory duty or otherwise, even if foreseeable, arising under or in connection with use of, or inability to use, our website.
 
If you are a business user, please note that in particular, we will not be liable for:

  • loss of profits, business, or revenue;
  • business interruption;
  • loss of anticipated savings;
  • loss of business opportunity, goodwill or reputation; or
  • any indirect or consequential loss or damage.

If you are a consumer, you agree that you may not use our website in connection with any commercial purpose and that we have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
 
We will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by a virus, distributed denial-of-service attack, or other technologically harmful material that may infect your computer equipment due to your use of our website or your downloading of any content on it.
 
We assume no responsibility for the content of websites linked on our website. Such links do not constitute approval by us of linked websites. We will not be liable for any loss or damage that may arise from your use of them.

VIRUSES
 
We do not guarantee that our website will be secure or free from bugs or viruses. You are responsible for configuring your information technology in order to access our website. You should always use your own virus protection software.
 
You must not misuse our website by knowingly introducing viruses, Trojan horses, worms, logic bombs or other material which is malicious or technologically harmful.
 
You must not attempt to gain unauthorised access to our website, the server on which our website is stored or any server, computer or database connected to our website. You must not attack our website via a denial-of-service attack or otherwise.
 
By breaching these rules, you commit a criminal offence under the Computer Misuse Act 1990. We will report any such breach to the relevant law enforcement authorities and we will co-operate fully with them. In the event of such a breach, your right to use our website will cease.
 
LINKING TO OUR WEBSITE AND TO OTHER SITES
 
You may link to our website, provided you do so in a way that is fair and legal, is not defamatory and does not take advantage of our reputation. Our website must not be framed on any other site.
 
Where our website contains links to other sites and resources provided by third parties, these links are provided for your information only. We have no control over the contents of those sites or resources.

PRODUCTS WE MAKE
 
We manufacture drams, tasting sets, spirit-filled advent calendars and crackers, among other products.
 
We use factual statements to describe the source of the whisky or other contents of those products. For example, if we bottled a delicious single cask distilled at the outstanding Glenfarclas distillery then we would say exactly that. In that instance we would not be asserting any ownership of, or other rights in, the trademark "Glenfarclas", which we do not own. The label describes the bottle we opened and decanted into drams, so a dram with "Glenfarclas 40" on it indicates that we opened up a sealed bottle of rich, dark, Christmassy Glenfarclas 40 Year Old and carefully decanted it into clean food-safe containers in a food-safe environment.
 
Any defects introduced by our manufacturing processes (bottling, re-bottling, dramming, labelling, waxing, etc) are not the responsibility of the third party which produces any whisky (or other raw material) which we have used.

CHANGES TO THIS POLICY
 
We may revise these terms of use at any time by amending this page. You are expected to check this page from time to time to take notice of any changes we make, as they are legally binding on you.
 
APPLICABLE LAW
 
If you are a consumer, please note that these terms of use, their subject matter and formation, are governed by English law. You and we both agree to that the courts of England and Wales will have non-exclusive jurisdiction to hear disputes relating to these terms of use and your use of our website. However, if you are a resident of Northern Ireland you may also bring proceedings in Northern Ireland, and if you are resident of Scotland, you may also bring proceedings in Scotland.
 
If you are a business, these terms of use, their subject matter and their formation (including any non-contractual disputes or claims) are governed by English law. We both agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
