http://www.ceritaswines.com does not post third-party ads on our web site. CERITAS may use third-party media companies to place ads for CERITAS products or services on other companies’ web sites. If you view a web page where CERITAS ads appear, the online media company may place a cookie or web beacon on the user’s computer. This allows the online media company to recognize the computer when it is used to return to that site or measure advertising response. This data is anonymous and is not linked to personal data on the user’s computer or any CERITAS databases. Some CERITAS newsletters delivered on CERITAS’s behalf by online media companies use the same technologies. In both cases, this data is also used by the online media company to measure advertising and content interest and relevance. CERITAS does not have access to the data collected by the online media company. To prevent online media companies from placing cookies on your computer, you will need to visit each media company’s web site and use their cookie removal (opt-out) process.
CERITAS prides itself on producing fine wine. We take care to ensure that the wine you order ships and arrives in the same condition as when you ordered it. If you feel that the wine has been compromised during shipment please do not hesitate to contact the winery at firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name, order number, phone number and email address.
We cannot however be held responsible for wine that is lost or stolen or after three delivery attempts by the carrier. Incorrect delivery information (including zip code mistakes), incorrect addresses or re-routing of packages at the point of delivery will result in an extra handling charge for ground or air shipments. If wine is returned to CERITAS, the customer is responsible for subsequent return shipping charges and reshipment charges.
