I agree that I am of legal drinking age!
I understand that Atlanta Wine School’s courses include wine tasting as a necessary and integral part of the courses. Wine contains alcohol and alcohol may cause impairment or drunkenness if consumed in sufficient quantities. I agree that when participating in Atlanta Wine School’s tastings, I will consume wine only in moderation and not so as to cause impairment or drunkenness. I am under no legal or medical restriction which would limit my right or ability to participate in wine tasting.
In consideration for my participation in Atlanta Wine School’s courses, I release, discharge and agree not to sue Atlanta Wine School or any of it’s affiliates, shareholders, directors, officers, employees, agents, representatives, or Venues where class is held (collectively called “Releasees in this Agreement and Release) for any claims, demands, actions and causes of action arising out of any loss or damage to property and any injury, including but not limited to death, that I or others may sustain, whether or not caused by the negligence of the Releasees, as a result of my participating in Atlanta Wine School’s wine tastings, classes, events or tours. I voluntarily assume full responsibility for property loss or damage, and for personal injury, including but not limited to death that I may sustain as a result of being engaged in this activity, whether or not caused by the negligence of the Releasees. I intend this as a release, discharge and promise not to sue or bring any claim against the Releasees. I also agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Releasees from any loss, liability, damage or costs, including court costs and attorney’s fees, that they may incur due to my participation in the activity, whether caused by the negligence of Releasees or otherwise.
I understand that it is a condition of my enrollment in Atlanta Wine School classes that I must agree to these terms, and I understand that Atlanta Wine School will not permit me to purchase any of its courses or attend any of its classes unless done so.
VI. ALL PAYMENTS ARE FINAL
VIII. ISSUES BEYOND OUR CONTROL/INCLEMENT WEATHER/ACTS OF GOD
If a class cannot run due to inclement weather or other “acts of God,” then we will post a re-schedule date for this class. If an attendee cannot make the re-schedule date, we will provide a credit amount of the class to the attendee so they may use it towards a future class.
If you are not able to make your course, you have the following recourse:
Cancellations with a minimum of three (3) full business days notice of course commencement will allow you to receive 100% of your registration credit towards a future class of your choosing, based on availability. This credit must be used within 6 months of being provided by Vino Venue/Atlanta Wine School or is forfeited. Note: All WSET (Wine & Spirit Education Trust) courses require a notice of eleven (11) business days prior to course commencement due to WSET regulations.
Cancellations within three (3) full business days of the event will NOT be eligible for any credit.
Cancellations MUST be requested in writing at: firstname.lastname@example.org
X. WHAT TO WEAR (AND WHAT NOT TO WEAR)
Unless otherwise noted, patrons will feel comfortable in business casual clothes at our events. Also, your fellow guests will appreciate it if you wear very little or NO perfume/cologne. Patrons tell us all the time of the lady “with too much perfume” or the guy “who wore way too much cologne.” This is a distraction when one is trying to detect and describe various wine aromas.
XI. DIETARY REQUEST SELECTIONS
While registering for a course or event, we request you provide us with any special dietary needs you may have within three (3) business days of the scheduled course or event. All of our classes (except the CSW Program and the WSET Program) provide light appetizers, some of which are gluten free. But for cooking classes, events and wine dinners, alternatives will not be available unless previously requested. Altering the menu for these types of courses or events, if available, may result in a surcharge.
Seating at our events is FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVE. If you are in a group of two or more, we strongly advise you to arrive early (at least 15 minutes early) to ensure you are seated together.
XIV. GIFT CERTIFICATES/GIFT CARDS
We follow the Federal guidelines concerning giftcards, which went into effect on August 22nd, 2010. Those guidelines state an inactivity fee may be charged monthly for giftcard balances after one year from date of issue. The inactivity fee is 15% of the cards declining value each month. For example, a giftcard with a balance of $100 twelve months after date of issue, will be worth $85 in month 13, $72.75 in month 14, $61.41 in month 15, etc. Any residual value on the card expires five (5) years after date of purchase.
