To use the Site, you must be of legal drinking age in your country of residence, and in the country from which you access the Site.

These Terms regulate the use of the Site, provided by IDL, as well as the relationship between IDL and the users of the Site.

We may update the Terms by posting a new version online, including at www.irishdistillers.ie, and your continued use of the Site after any such update constitutes your binding acceptance of such changes. Please read these Terms carefully. This document is a binding contract between you and IDL.

The Terms apply to all content, functions and tools that IDL provides through Site. In addition to the Terms, the Privacy Statement also applies.

It is impossible for us to determine with any degree of certainty whether any user is in fact the person he or she represents to be. Accordingly, we accept no liability for the actual identity of any user.

2. Linking to the Site

You may link to our Site, provided you do so in a way that is fair and legal and does not damage our reputation or take advantage of it, but you must not establish a link in such a way as to suggest any form of association, approval or endorsement on our part where none exists.

3. Links from the Site

Where the Site contains links to other sites and resources provided by third parties, these links are provided for your information only. We have no control over the content of those sites or resources, and accept no responsibility for them or for any loss or damage that may arise from your use of them.

4. Data Protection

Your data, as well as information that you may provide at other times during your use of the Site, is subject to our Privacy Statement, which is incorporated by reference into these Terms.

5. Intellectual Property Rights

We are the owner or the licensee of all intellectual property rights in the Site, and in the material published on it. Those works are protected by copyright laws and treaties around the world. All such rights are reserved.

In respect of any material that you submit to or post on the Site you grant to us a worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, royalty-free licence to use, reproduce, adapt, publish, translate and distribute such material in any media, together with the right to sub-licence such rights.

6. Reliance On Information Posted

We do not make any warranties or representations regarding information provided by us or by third parties to us, or any data provided or made available to you or any other user on the Site or on any external websites linked to them. In particular, we do not warrant or represent that such data and/or information is true or accurate, or that it fulfils or serves any particular purpose.

Commentary and other materials posted on the Site are not intended to amount to advice on which reliance should be placed. We therefore disclaim all liability and responsibility arising from any reliance placed on such materials by any visitor to the Site, or by anyone who may be informed of any of their contents.

7. The Site Changes Regularly

We aim to update the Site regularly, and may change the content at any time. If the need arises, we may suspend access to the Site, or close it indefinitely. Any of the material on the Site may be out of date at any given time, and we are under no obligation to update such material.

8. Availability and Functionality

IDL strives to keep the Site accessible 24 hours per day and 7 days per week. Because of maintenance work or technical issues of e.g. communication networks, it is possible that access to Site will be either temporarily limited or interrupted completely. IDL does not assume any liability for, or guarantee for the uninterrupted availability or the uninterrupted usability of the Site.

IDL strives for smooth operation, efficient functioning and functionality of the Site. However, the user accepts that software is never free of errors and that technical errors cannot be excluded generally. The user also acknowledges that for communication over the internet, various computers with various software in various configurations interact, which generally causes difficulties in terms of smooth functionality. That is why IDL does not accept liability for or guarantee the function or functionality of the Site, potentially offered downloads on the Site and for the error-free operation of the hardware and software used for and by the Site.

9. Security

You should be aware that the Internet is not secure. If you choose to send any electronic communications by means of the Site, you do so at your own risk. IDL does not guarantee that such communications will not be intercepted or changed or that they will reach the intended recipient securely.
