III. Processing and Delivery of Products
Saucey provides a delivery service only, for local liquor stores (the “Retailers”), through which all orders and purchases are processed. Saucey does not hold a license to sell alcohol, nor is it a licensed retailer. At the time you purchase alcoholic beverages or other items (“Products”), you are purchasing those items from a licensed retailer, and your credit card will be charged by a third party credit card processing provider who will transfer and deliver the funds to the Retailers.
Neither Saucey, nor any officer, director, employee, shareholder or agent of Saucey shall be liable to the User or any third-party for any claims relating to the purchase, sale, delivery and/or consumption of the alcoholic beverage or any consequences which may result thereof.

All deliveries including alcoholic beverages must be accepted by the account holder, who is capable of proving that he or she is 21 years of age or older and can provide a valid form of government issued identification at the time of delivery.
If there is no individual who is 21 years of age or older or cannot provide valid identification showing that he or she is 21 years of age or older, the delivery driver (the “Courier”) will not complete delivery of the Products. Additionally, if the Courier is unable to contact you or the account holder at the specified delivery address for 5 or more minutes, all Products will be removed from the order and returned to the Retailers and a $7.99 restocking fee will be charged to User’s credit card and the original order balance will be returned to User.
The Courier reserves the right to refuse to deliver Products for any reason. This reservation includes, but is not limited to, refusing service to individuals who are visibly intoxicated or to specific locations for safety reasons. Products cannot and will not be left unattended for any reason. Any Retailer reserves the right to not accept any order for any reason.
