2. Privacy Notice
We will treat all of your personal data as confidential and comply with all applicable privacy regulations and consumer legislation.
3. Online shopping
General information and payment security
We reserve the right to restrict deliveries in certain areas. This includes the right to withdraw our services to individual customers' addresses if you are repeatedly unavailable to take delivery of your shopping at your chosen slot time or in other exceptional circumstances.
Delivery and collection arrangements
For Restricted Items, if your nominated representative is not aged 18 or above, we will not deliver products. Our couriers apply our "Challenge 25 Policy" and so proof of age will be requested if the person receiving the products looks under 25 years old.
Pursuant to the Licensing Act 2003 it is an offence for any person under the age of 18 to buy, or attempt to buy, intoxicating liquor, or for any person over the age of 18 to buy intoxicating liquor on behalf of any person under the age of 18, subject to a maximum fine on conviction of £1,000.
Austrian Food UK is committed to upholding both their legal and social obligations as a retailer of intoxicating liquor and other Restricted Items. In order to achieve this, Austrian Food UK has introduced a number of control checks throughout the purchase and physical distribution process (e.g. confirming your date of birth and requesting formal identification of anyone who they consider to be younger than the relevant age (i.e. 25 years old pursuant to our Challenge 25 Policy) who is a buyer or recipient of the delivery.
In accepting these Terms and Conditions you agree to provide Austrian Food UK with truthful and accurate information and act in accordance with them and legal obligations including the Licensing Act of 2003. For the purposes of the Licensing Act 2003, any alcohol included in your order will be appropriated by you to the contract at the same central, licensed premises at which your payment is taken and where the contract for sale is made. This simply means that the sale of any alcohol included in your order will take place at such premises. This has no practical effect on you other than to improve our fulfilment of your orders that contain alcohol, nor does it impact on our policies aimed at preventing deliveries of alcohol to minors.
