You must be at least twenty-one (21) years old to purchase alcoholic beverages. By doing so, you represent that you meet this minimum age requirement.
If your order has been cancelled or declined for any reason, either before or after acceptance, Mouth will make reasonable efforts to contact you to inform you of its cancellation or non-acceptance. Should an order which uses an incorrect, expired, or declined credit card be processed, Mouth reserves the right to collect payment for such transaction, and you agree to be liable for any fees, including but not limited to attorney’s fees and collection costs, that Mouth may incur in its efforts to collect such unpaid balance from you, plus interest.
You may have the option of purchasing a subscription package, or a single shipment. If you purchase a subscription package, your card will be charged at the time you place your initial order.
For recurring subscription shipments, we attempt to ship between the 10th and 20th calendar day of each month.

Shipment of Products. Title and risk of loss for any purchases pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier. We reserve the right to ship partial orders (at no additional cost to you), and the portion of any order that is partially shipped may be charged at the time of shipment. Unless as a result of events outside of our direct control, orders of products purchased by you through the Services will be delivered within the time period specified for the delivery method you have selected.
Mouth recommends that all items be secured immediately upon delivery. Shipments may not be made to a P.O. Box or other unattended address. You are responsible for arranging for an individual to be present at the time of delivery and for the products to be properly received and secured. Any individual at the delivery address who accepts delivery is conclusively presumed to be authorized to receive the delivery. Mouth is not responsible should such an individual not be authorized to accept such delivery. You agree that your sole method of recourse for unauthorized delivery resides with the carrier of your order.

Please review our FAQs for more information regarding the terms of sale associated with the Services.
Gift certificates for the Services may only be purchased through www.mouth.com. Mouth may place limitations on the minimum of maximum value of gift cards that are made available. You may not use a gift certificate to purchase additional gift certificates. Promotional codes, discounts or other promotions are not applicable to the purchase of gift cards. Gift certificates expire 3 years from the purchase date.
Gift certificates have no cash value, and are not redeemable for cash or other credit to payment methods. Gift certificate purchases are non-refundable. If your gift certificate malfunctions or fails to work, your sole remedy is a replacement gift certificate.When purchasing a gift certificate, you may have the choice of receiving the certificate by regular mail, or through e-mail. Each gift certificate comes with its own alphanumeric code, which will be sent to the e-mail address you designate as the recipient of the gift certificate.
You or the user of the gift certificate must have an account with Mouth to use the certificate. Each gift certificate may only be used with one Mouth account. When an alphanumeric gift certificate code is used with a particular account for the first time, the number will be assigned to that account and may not be transferred or used by another account holder. After entry, the amounts on the gift card will automatically be applied to purchases from that account until the gift card is exhausted. Mouth may require the entry of a payment card or payment method in addition to a gift certificate to ensure that a sale using a gift card is completed, such as in the event of extra shipping charges.
Where labeled as such, gift certificates may be one-time-use certificates. Under such a circumstance, any amount on a gift certificate that is not used in the initial purchase using that gift certificate will be forfeited.
After purchase, you are responsible for the security of the gift certificate and its code, including responsibility for use of the gift certificate by others. Mouth is not responsible if someone uses your gift certificate code without your permission.
In addition to its other remedies, Mouth may cancel a gift certificate, an order for a gift certificate or the use of a gift certificate if it suspects or discovers fraud.

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL MOUTH, ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS AND BUSINESS PARTNERS (COLLECTIVELY, THE “RELATED PARTIES”) BE LIABLE TO YOU BASED ON OR RELATED TO THE SERVICES OR ANY GOODS SOLD OR PROVIDED BY MOUTH, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, AND SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOSSES OR DAMAGES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR SPECIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE SERVICES OR ANY GOODS SOLD OR PROVIDED BY MOUTH, EVEN IF MOUTH AND/OR RELATED PARTIES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that a court shall find that the above disclaimers are not enforceable, then you agree that neither Mouth nor any of its subsidiaries, affiliated companies, employees, members, shareholders, officers or directors shall be liable for (1) any damages in excess of $500.00 or (2) any indirect, incidental, punitive, special, or consequential damages or loss of use, lost revenue, lost profits or data to you or any third party from your use of the Services or any goods sold or provided by Mouth.

You agree that any claim or dispute arising out of or relating in any way to your use of the Services or any Goods or service provided by Mouth, will be resolved solely and exclusively by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement. The laws of the State of New York shall govern this Agreement, and shall be used in any arbitration proceeding.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of this Agreement as a court would.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to the following address: Mouth Foods, Inc. 68 Jay Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201.
Arbitration under this Agreement will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules then in effect. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. Arbitration shall take place in Brooklyn, New York.
You and Mouth agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, both you and Mouth agree that parties have each waived any right to a jury trial.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that Mouth may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.

You may not assign the Agreement without Mouth’s prior written consent, and any unauthorized assignment by you shall be null and void. No Waiver.

You hereby agree that Mouth would be irreparably damaged if the terms of this Agreement were not specifically enforced, and therefore you agree that we shall be entitled, without bond, other security, or proof of damages, to appropriate equitable remedies with respect to breaches of this Agreement, in addition to such other remedies as we may otherwise have available to us under applicable laws.
