General Policies

As of October 3, 2019, General Policies have been updated to reflect changes in tax/duty/tariffs levied under Important Notice – Place of Sale.  We have added:

Buyer is solely responsible for the transport of wine and other goods purchased and for determining the legality of, and the tax, duty, and/or tariff effect on, having the wine and other goods imported and/or delivered to the applicable destination. All taxes, duties, and/or tariffs imposed at the time of delivery to the United States are the sole responsibility of the buyer and must be remitted prior to the release of the wine. 

What this change means:

This effects buyers of any Pre-Arrival wines that have any tax/duty/tariffs levied on their wines during the time of delivery to the United States.


Ordering

Please Note: The time it takes to pull, assemble and process a typical order is approximately 3-5 business days prior to leaving Zachys premises. If your order is "Time Sensitive", please contact us 1-800-723-0241.

Older vintages, fine and rare wine availability in many cases is extremely limited. We will do our best to fill your order but cannot be held responsible if an item is unobtainable at that time.

You may elect to have the original wood case delivered (if applicable) by emailing clientservices@zachys.com upon submission of your order. Please reference your order number. There is a supplemental charge of $12+tax per wooden case for delivery via Ground service.

All orders will be acknowledged via email once they have been submitted. Please allow a minimum of 3 -5 business days for your order to be pulled, processed and assembled for delivery. In some cases, when the inventory of an item is listed as "Limited Quantity Available", there may be a delay while we will double check our stock and check with the distributor in order to locate additional inventory. If an item has sold out, it will be omitted from your final invoice. You may place an order on our webiste or via telephone per the below.

Order Cancellation/Return Procedures and Policies*

Cancellation Policy:

Cancelled orders are orders that have been placed by the Buyer that have not yet been delivered. A restocking fee of 10% will be assessed at the time of the issuance of a credit.

Return Policy

Returned orders are any order that has been delivered and then returned or declined by the Buyer. The restocking fee is 10% of the sales amount. Returned purchases are only accepted within 90 days of the purchase date and if the wine is a current vintage still stocked by Zachys. If wine is returned without a receipt, we will only honor the lowest price the item has sold for in the last 6 months and will only issue an in-house credit on the Buyer’s Account valid for one (1) year.

Unfortunately, sometimes wine bottles may not get to you in perfect condition. . Zachys is more than happy to replace or refund within 90 days of the original purchase date items that are damaged on arrival or are corked or otherwise flawed. . Once the damaged bottles have been returned to us, we will issue you a refund, house credit or a replacement.

Special Orders

Zachys reserves the right not to accept any special orders for credit, including special size requests for pre-arrivals or futures.

Important Notice - Place of Sale 

Title to, and ownership of, all wine passes from seller to buyer in the State in which the sale occurs, and buyer takes all responsibility for the wine being transported from the state of sale to the buyers selected destination. By placing an order, buyer authorizes seller to act on buyer’s behalf in arranging for transportation of the wine at the buyer’s direction. Alternatively, buyer may choose to pick up the wine at seller’s location or make independent delivery arrangements. Sales tax will be applied based on the seller’s location. Seller makes no representation as to the legal rights of anyone to deliver or import any wines, alcoholic beverages or other goods into any state.

Buyer is solely responsible for the transport of wine and other goods purchased and for determining the legality and the tax/duty consequences of having the wine and other goods delivered to the applicable destination. All taxes, duties, and/or tariffs imposed at the time of delivery to the United States are the sole responsibility of the Buyer and must be remitted prior to the release of the wine. 

Local Delivery Pricing

Scarsdale, White Plains, Hartsdale, Ardsley, Greenburgh, Eastchester: free delivery
Remainder of Westchester: $25 for first case, plus $5 for each additional case
Connecticut: $30 for first case, plus $15 for each additional case
Manhattan: $35 for first case, plus $10 for each additional case
Long Island: $35 for first case, plus $15 for each additional case
New Jersey: $40 for first case, plus $20 each additional case

Transportation Protection

As standard practice, a Protection Fee is added to all Zachys deliveries. The Fee is equal to 1% of the value of the items being delivered. In return for payment of the Protection Fee, purchased wines will be protected solely against breakage, theft or fire during delivery to the customer’s declared point of destination. Protection Fee coverage is equal to the value of the purchase price of corresponding wines. It covers the cost of replacement wines and standard re-shipment of those wines to customer. In the unlikely event that a customer’s re-shipment also experiences an issue, the next replacement and re-shipment are not covered by the first protection fee. Travel protection does not cover damage caused by heat or extreme cold.

In the case that you receive damaged merchandise, you must inform Zachys of any broken or damaged bottles within two days of delivery.

By waiving the Protection Fee, you release Zachys from any and all responsibility for breakage or loss that may occur to your order.

We use certain technologies and services to improve the functionality of the Website, and your browsing experience.  When you visit our Website, non-personally identifiable may be collected with “cookies”.  Cookies are text files stored on your browser or the hard drive of your computer or mobile device, or other similar technologies to keep track of traffic and users to the Website.

Collected information may include non-personal data such as your IP address, location, times you access the Website, and information about your computer/mobile device’s hardware and software.  Zachys will only collect your personally identifiable information (“PII”) if you choose to voluntarily provide us with it. PII is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, locate, or contact a single person, or to identify an individual in context.  For example, if you contact our office by email, you will be submitting personal information about yourself to us.  Another example of PII collected by our Website is credit card or other financial information used in online transactions, which is encrypted by a third-party security provider.

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Privacy Policy, Zachys may share collected information with law enforcement agencies and other parties with legal rights to obtain such information in accordance with applicable laws, rules and regulations, or when compelled by subpoena or other legal process.  If necessary, we may also share PII in the course of a reorganization, merger or sale.

Additional Provisions for California Residents

California residents using the Website may have additional rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (the “CCPA”).  When we use the term “personal information” in this supplemental provision, we are using that term as defined in the CCPA, meaning information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household. Under the CCPA, personal information does not include publicly available, deidentified, or aggregate consumer information (as all defined in the CCPA).  “Personal information” does not apply to the collection of personal information from job applicants, employees, business owners, directors, officers, medical staff or contractors.  If you are a resident of California, you have the right to request what information we collect, use, and disclose.

Exhibit B


WINE STORAGE AGREEMENT


This Wine Storage Agreement (this “Agreement”) is dated as of the date of the last signature below by and between Zachys Fine Wine Storage, Inc. (“ZFWS”) and the undersigned client (“Client”) and sets forth the Standard Plan terms and conditions (the “Standard Plan”) governing the storage of any and all bottles, cases or boxes of wine or other items (collectively, the “Property”) that Client has caused to be in ZFWS’s custody at one or more of its, or one of its affiliate’s, warehouses (the “Warehouse”).


1. Inventory


(a) Generally, within seven (7) business days after receiving Client’s Property for storage, ZFWS will provide Client a receipt of the Property, which will consist of a general description of the number of cases and/or boxes of wine placed into its Warehouse (the “Acknowledgment of Delivery”). The Acknowledgment of Delivery is a general statement acknowledging ZFWS’s receipt of the Property and will not set forth a description of the wine contained within the cases and/or boxes received. If there is any discrepancy between the Acknowledgement of Delivery and the Detailed Inventory (as hereinafter defined) conducted pursuant to Section 2(b) below, the Detailed Inventory shall control.


(b) After receiving Client’s Property for storage (depending on the amount and type of the Property), ZFWS will prepare a detailed inventory that sets forth the full description of, and uniquely identifies, the Property received by ZFWS (the “Detailed Inventory”). Unless specifically requested in writing, ZFWS will not open any cases that appear to be original wooden cases (“OWC”) or original carton (“OC”). ZFWS will open all cases that appear to be of a mixed variety or that do not appear to be OWC or OC (“Mixed Cases”). For each OWC, each OC and each of the bottles in a Mixed Case received by ZFWS, ZFWS will affix a sticker to the outside of the case, the outside of the carton or on each bottle (as applicable) that sets forth the Client’s name, the ZFWS identification number, the date the sticker was printed and a bar code identifying such product contained therein. This full description of the wine on each such sticker will be used as the description in the Detailed Inventory.


(c) The Detailed Inventory, as may be revised from time to time by additions or withdrawals to the Property by the Client in accordance with the Standard Plan, will be the determinative description and inventory of the Property stored by Client with ZFWS.


(d) All Property is stored on a month-to-month basis.  ZFWS will provide a monthly Detailed Inventory for billing purposes, as adjusted pursuant to Section 1(c) above.  ZFWS will provide Client with additional adjusted Detailed Inventories upon Client’s reasonable request.


(e) If Client believes there are inaccuracies or discrepancies in any Detailed Inventory provided hereunder, Client must notify ZFWS within thirty (30) days of receiving the Detailed Inventory in question. Failure to timely notify ZFWS of any inventory inaccuracies or discrepancies will result in the waiver of any claim Client may have based on such Detailed Inventory.


(f) Except as provided herein or expressly authorized by Client, Client’s wine boxes or cases shall not be opened by ZFWS. In the event that ZFWS, in its sole discretion, believes it necessary to determine the ownership, nature or condition of the wine in a box or case, or believes a box or case containing Client’s wine is damaged or otherwise requires replacement, ZFWS may repackage the wine into substantially similar boxes or cases at the expense of Client. If, at any time, ZFWS, in its sole discretion, determines that any of Client’s wine is not appropriate for storage or has deteriorated to such an extent that it cannot be stored safely, ZFWS shall notify Client thereof (the “Removal Notice”) and require that Client remove such wine within seven (7) days’ after delivery of the Renewal Notice. If Client fails to comply, ZFWS shall have the right to isolate Client’s wine from other wines in storage, and shall further have the right to remove such wines from the Warehouse after ninety (90) days of the Removal Notice. Client expressly acknowledges that neither ZFWS nor any entity with whom ZFWS contracts to provide pick up or delivery services is a common carrier and ZFWS and any such entity may therefore refuse to transport Client’s wine in its sole discretion. All deliveries to the Warehouse must be scheduled with ZFWS at least five (5) business days in advance of any drop off. ZFWS may not be able to accommodate any unscheduled deliveries. Unscheduled deliveries will be charged a fee ($150 per incident) if ZFWS is able to receive them.


(g) Nothing contained in any Acknowledgment of Delivery or any Detailed Inventory provided hereunder shall constitute or be deemed to constitute a representation or warranty by ZFWS or Client as to authenticity, quality, condition, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, correctness of description, size, rarity, importance, provenance or previous storage conditions of any of the Property. Nor shall any statement set forth in this Agreement, or in any other notice or document provided hereunder, be deemed to constitute such a warranty or representation.


(h) Client may request an in-person physical inventory by appointment only with a fee of $150 per person per hour. The hours are captured from the time property is pulled to the time the property is placed back into inventory. ZFWS will provide an estimate upon request. 


(i) Client may request a transfer of Property from one to any other warehouse belonging to or operated by ZFWS at ZFWS’s standard transfer and labor rates set forth in the Rate Schedule (as hereinafter defined).


(j) ZFWS may, without notice, move the Property within the Warehouse in which the Property is stored. ZFWS may also move any Property in storage from the Warehouse in which the Property is stored to any of the other warehouse belonging to or operated by ZFWS or any of its affiliates provided ZFWS gives Client thirty (30) days’ prior notice thereof.


(k) Client represents and warrants that it is the owner or has lawful possession of the Property and all right and authority to store the Property with ZFWS and thereafter direct the release and/or delivery of the Property.


2. Storage Fees; Billing


(a) Client will be charged storage, handling and other services fees in accordance with the rate schedule attached hereto as Exhibit A (the “Rate Schedule”). ZFWS may, upon thirty (30) days written notice to Client, revise its rates and the Rate Schedule from time to time in its sole discretion.


(b) If Client elects coverage under the Breakage and Theft Protection Plan (as defined in Section 8), then in addition to the storage fee described in Section 2(a), Client will be charged a separate fee (the “Breakage and Theft Protection Fee”) equal to two and one-half percent (2.5%) of the aggregate fair market value (the “Aggregate Value”) of Client’s Property stored with ZFWS per calendar year.  ZFWS will have the right to change the Breakage and Theft Protection Fee percentage at any time and from time to time upon thirty (30) days’ notice to Client.  For purposes of this Agreement, the “Aggregate Value” of Client’s Property set forth in the Detailed Inventory will be determined as follows:


1. With respect to any Property Client purchased from Zachys Wine and Liquor Store, Inc., Zachys Wine Auctions Inc., Zachys DC, Inc., Zachys Asia, Limited, ZC Auction, Inc., Zachys Europe, Limited or any other affiliate of ZFWS (collectively, “Strategic Partners”), the Aggregate Value will be the price Client paid for such Property.


2. With respect to any Property that Client did not purchase from a Strategic Partner, the Aggregate Value of such Property shall be the value provided by Client at the time the Property is placed in the Warehouse, subject to ZFWS approval, which approval will not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed; provided, however, that upon Client’s request and in consideration of an additional fee determined by ZFWS in its commercially reasonable discretion based on the quantity and type of Property, ZFWS will assess an Aggregate Value of the Property at the time the Property is placed in the Warehouse for an additional fee determined by ZFWS and based on the quantity and type of the Property.


3. The Aggregate Value shall be adjusted by ZFWS on a monthly basis to reflect additions to and subtractions from Client’s Detailed Inventory.


4. Client may request that ZFWS provide an updated assessment of the Aggregate Value of Client’s Property at any time for an additional fee determined by ZFWS and based on the quantity and type of the Property.


(c) Client may pay for storage services in advance for a specified period of time or on a monthly basis by authorizing monthly automatic charges to Client’s credit card (“Recurring Charges”).  If Client elects to pay for any such storage on a monthly basis, Client hereby authorizes Zachys to initiate Recurring Charges to the credit card provided at the rates and frequency identified herein.  CLIENT MAY CANCEL RECURRING CHARGES AS CLIENT’S PREFERRED METHOD OF PAYMENT AT ANY TIME BY CONTACTING ZFWS AT CLIENTSERVICES@ZACHYS.COM.  IF CLIENT CANCELS RECURRING CHARGES CLIENT MUST PROVIDE A REPLACEMENT PAYMENT METHOD TO CONTINUE TO RECEIVE STORAGE SERVICES HEREUNDER.


3. Handling In-Out Charge


(a) If all of the bottles in an individual case or box of the Property are OWC or OC or otherwise of the same (“Solid Case”), Client will be charged a handling fee for the handling of each such Solid Case coming in and going out of the Warehouse per the Rate Schedule. 

(b) If the wines in a case or box of the Property are a Mixed Case, Client will be charged a handling fee for the handling of such Mixed Cases coming in to the warehouse per the Rate Schedule. Client will be charged for each fill Mixed Case going out of the Warehouse per the Rate Schedule.  Per-case or per-box fees and charges do not include handling in the event of the removal of less than a full case or box (i.e., the removal of fewer than all of the bottles in a case or box).

(c) ZFWS may, upon thirty (30) days written notice to Client, revise its Handling In-Out Charges during the time the Property is in storage.


4. Transportation (Local and National)


This Agreement does not cover the transportation of Client’s Property to or from the Warehouse. ZFWS can assist in organizing both the pick-up and delivery of Client’s Property. For more information about transportation services, please inquire directly with ZFWS.


5. Terms and Conditions of Payment


(a) All payments are due upon receipt of invoice. Client shall pay interest on all late payments at the lesser of the rate of 1.5% per month or the highest rate permissible under applicable law, calculated daily and compounded monthly from the date due until paid in full. Client shall be charged an administrative fee of $30.00 for each check returned for insufficient funds. Client shall reimburse ZFWS for all costs incurred in collecting any late payments, including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees. Client shall make all payments hereunder in US dollars.  In addition to all other remedies available under this Agreement or at law (which ZFWS does not waive by the exercise of any rights hereunder), ZFWS shall be entitled to suspend the release of any Property or cease performance of any services if Client fails to pay any amounts when due hereunder and such failure continues for thirty (30) days following written notice thereof. In addition, ZFWS reserves the right to require payment in full of all amounts owed by Client in advance of the release of the related Property.  Client shall not withhold payment of any amounts due and payable by reason of any set-off of any claim or dispute with ZFWS, whether relating to ZFWS’s breach, bankruptcy, or otherwise.


(b) ZFWS reserves the right to deny any services, including, but not limited to, withdrawal, removal or additional deposits of Property, under the terms of this Agreement if all outstanding invoices are not paid at the time any additional service is requested.


(c) Storage charges are invoiced on a monthly basis. Upon the receipt of any Property during the course of the month, the charge will be pro-rated and billed on the next billing cycle. Thereafter, storage charges will be due monthly. 


(d) Included in the monthly billings will be a current Detailed Inventory. If Client believes there are any inaccuracies or discrepancies in any Detailed Inventory provided with these monthly bills, Client must notify ZFWS within thirty (30) days of receiving the Detailed Inventory in question. Failure to notify ZFWS of any inventory inaccuracies or discrepancies within thirty (30) days will result in the waiver of any claim Client may have based on such Detailed Inventory. Client may request a copy of their Detailed Inventory at time during the billing cycle.


(e) Any additional charges for services rendered as provided in this Agreement will be billed upon rendering of such services. Payment will be due as provided in the invoice for such services.


(f) All charges are exclusive of all sales, use, and excise taxes, and any other similar taxes, duties and charges of any kind imposed by any governmental authority on any amounts payable by Client. Client shall be responsible for all such charges, costs, and taxes; provided, that, Client shall not be responsible for any taxes imposed on, or with respect to, ZFWS’s income, revenues, gross receipts, personnel, or real or personal property.


6. Warehouse Lien; Commercial Goods.

Client acknowledges that ZFWS will have a statutory lien on any and all Property stored under this Agreement, and on the proceeds of any sale thereof to secure Client’s payment of all fees charges and expenses incurred in connection with the storage, handling and care of Property, as well as for like charges and expenses relating to any other goods whenever deposited with ZFWS.  ZFWS will have the right to enforce this lien in accordance with the provisions of the New York Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) Section 7-210.  ZFWS also reserves a security interest in all other charges and interest payable hereunder and not otherwise described in UCC 7-209(a), and Client expressly authorizes ZFWS to perfect its statutory lien on the Property and such other charges and interest as required by applicable law, including, without limitation, by filing a UCC-1 Financing Statement with the Department of State of the State of New York or other appropriate governmental authority.

Client expressly acknowledges and agrees that none of the Property stored from time to time by ZFWS hereunder or otherwise will consist of “household goods” as such term is used and defined in Section 606 of the New York General Business Law.


7. Termination.


(a) In addition to any remedies that may be provided under this Agreement, ZFWS may terminate this Agreement with immediate effect upon written notice to Client, if: (i) Client fails to pay any amount when due under this Agreement and such failure continues for thirty (30) days after Client’s receipt of written notice of nonpayment; and (ii) Client has not otherwise performed or complied with its obligations under any of the provisions contained in this Agreement, in whole or in part, and such failure continues for thirty (30) days after Client’s receipt of written notice thereof.


(b) This Agreement may be canceled by ZFWS upon sixty (60) days’ prior written notice with or without any cause or reason being given or required.


(c) If this Agreement is terminated for any reason, Client shall promptly arrange the removal of all Property from the Warehouse, subject to payment of all outstanding fees and charges due hereunder. If Client does not promptly remove such Property, ZFWS may without liability remove the Property and sell the Property at public or private sale without advertisement and with or without notification to all persons known to claim an interest in the Property (to the last known place of business of the person to be notified) in the manner provided by law. If ZFWS, after a reasonable effort, is unable to sell the Property, it may dispose of the Property without liability in any lawful manner.


8. Limited Warranty; Breakage and Theft Protection Plan.


(a) Unless Client has opted-in to the Breakage and Theft Protection Plan pursuant to Section 8(b), and has paid the Breakage and Theft Protection Fee and all other fees and expenses associated therewith, ZFWS will not be liable for any loss or damage to Property except to the extent that such loss or damage results from the failure of ZFWS to exercise the level of care with regard to the Property that a reasonably careful person would have exercised under the circumstances.  ZFWS will have no liability for damages or losses which could not have been avoided by the exercise of such care.  


(b) Client may opt-in to the ZFWS Breakage and Theft Protection Plan (the “Breakage and Theft Protection Plan”) upon notice to ZFWS at any time by executing and delivering a copy of the Breakage and Theft Protection Plan Opt-In Form attached hereto as Exhibit B.  If Property is already stored hereunder before Client opts-in to the Liability Protection Program, such opt-in will be effective on the first day of the following calendar month unless otherwise agreed by ZFWS.  If Client has opted-in to the Breakage and Theft Protection Plan and is otherwise in compliance with all other terms of this Agreement, then, in addition to the limited warranty contained in Section 8(a), ZFWS will reimburse Client for losses and damage resulting from breakage of bottles or cases (other than breakage occurring as a result of temperature changes, fire, water, damage to the warehouse structure or building, extreme weather events or other environmental conditions) and theft of Property (collectively, “Covered Losses”) as follows:


1. Client will be responsible for the first five hundred dollars ($500.00) of any Covered Loss (the “Deductible”).  Client will be solely responsible for any Covered Loss which totals less than the Deductible.


2. If a Covered Loss exceeds the Deductible, Client will be responsible to pay the Deductible, after which ZFWS will pay Client an amount (the “Loss Reimbursement”) equal to (a) the lesser of (i) the Aggregate Value or (ii) the actual cash value, as determined by ZFWS in its sole discretion, of Property that has suffered a Covered Loss minus (b) the Deductible.  


UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL ZFWS’S LIABILITY UNDER THIS SECTION 8 EXCEED THE ACTUAL COST TO REPAIR, RESTORE AND/OR REPLACE ANY DAMAGED PROPERTY, EVEN IF CLIENT HAS OPTED-IN TO THE BREAKAGE AND THEFT PROTECTION PLAN.  THE REMEDIES SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 8 WILL BE CLIENT’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AND ZFWS’ ENTIRE LIABILITY FOR ANY BREACH OF A WARRANTY OR OTHER OBLIGATION SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 8.


9. Limitation of Liability.


NOTWITHSTANDING ANY PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT TO THE CONTRARY, ZFWS WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR SPECIAL DAMAGES OF ANY TYPE OR NATURE WHATSOEVER AND HOWEVER ARISING, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS OR REVENUES, OR DIMINUTION IN VALUE, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO ANY BREACH OF ANY PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER OR NOT THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES HAS BEEN DISCLOSED IN ADVANCE BY CLIENT OR COULD HAVE BEEN REASONABLY FORESEEN BY PERSON OR ENTITY, REGARDLESS OF THE LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY (CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE) UPON WHICH THE CLAIM IS BASED, AND NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ANY AGREED OR OTHER REMEDY OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.  IN NO EVENT SHALL ZFWS’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT EXCEED ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS ($1,000.00), OR, IF CLIENT HAS OPTED-IN TO THE BREAKAGE AND THEFT PROTECTION PLAN, THE AMOUNT OF ANY LOSS REIMBURSEMENT.


10. Insurance.


ZFWS does not obtain insurance on Client’s behalf.  Client acknowledges that ZFWS has notified Client that it does not obtain insurance on Client’s behalf, and that ZFWS urges all Clients to obtain their own insurance policy in an amount equal to the value of Property.  Client agrees that, if Client obtain’s insurance coverage for the Property, Client will notify the insurer of all of the terms of this Agreement, and will confirm that all insurance coverage Client obtains includes waivers of any right of subrogation by the insurance provider against ZFWS, its agents, employees and contractors for any loss or damage to the Property.


11. Dispute Resolution


(a) This Agreement and all Disputes (as hereinafter defined) arising under, related to or occurring in connection with this Agreement, shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York.


(b) Should any dispute, claim or controversy arise under or in connection with this Agreement or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validation thereof (a “Dispute”), the parties will attempt in good faith to negotiate toward a resolution of the Dispute.


(c) If the parties cannot resolve a Dispute through negotiation within ninety (90) days after a party notifies the other party of the existence of a Dispute, either party may submit such Dispute for binding arbitration by delivering notice thereof to the other party (an “Arbitration Demand”).


(d) All arbitral proceedings hereunder will be conducted before a single arbitrator to be agreed to by the parties or, if the parties cannot agree on a single arbitrator, then each party shall select its own arbitrator who shall then, collectively, select a single arbitrator.  All arbitral proceedings will take place in City and County of New York, and will be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “JAMS Rules”), except as set forth herein.


(e) In any arbitral proceeding hereunder, the “Exchange of Information” contemplated by Rule 13 of the JAMS Rules is hereby limited to the discovery of this Agreement and any modifications or amendments hereto, documents evidencing any charges incurred pursuant to this Agreement, documents evidencing Client payments made for storage or other services rendered hereunder, and all inventories prepared hereunder, unless the parties agree to an otherwise-limited scope of discovery after the commencement of arbitration.


(f) The prevailing party in any arbitral proceeding hereunder will be entitled to an award of its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs of arbitration.  Judgment on any arbitration award hereunder may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.


12. Indemnity

Client’s Indemnity Obligations under this Agreement shall survive any termination of the services provided by ZFWS pursuant to this Agreement and any modification or amendment thereto. Client further agrees to tender any payments due to the Indemnified and/or the Indemnified’s attorneys, under or in respect of Client’s Indemnity Obligations, within ten (10) business days following written notice to the Client or Client’s counsel by the Indemnified that such payment is due therefor.


13. Notices. 


All notices to the Client hereunder will be emailed and/or mailed to the addresses of the Client provided in the signature line below, unless a different address and/or method for Client correspondence is indicated in writing and delivered to ZFWS.


14. Miscellaneous


(a) This Agreement, and any subsequent modifications or amendments thereto, represents the entire agreement between the parties concerning the subject matter hereof, and supersedes any and all prior agreements, either oral or written, concerning the subject matter hereof, which prior agreements, if any, are hereby cancelled. Any oral statements made by ZFWS, whether made prior or subsequent to the execution of this Agreement, shall neither constitute a representation or warranty of any kind nor be relied upon by Client in any way. ZFWS reserves the right to change the terms of this Agreement upon thirty (30) days’ written notice. This Agreement may not otherwise be amended or terminated orally, but only upon thirty (30) days’ written notice.


(b) This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, and when so executed each counterpart shall be deemed to be an original, and said counterparts together shall constitute one and the same instrument. This Agreement may be executed and then delivered by email or facsimile, and upon such delivery the signature thereon shall be deemed to have the same effect as if the original signature had been delivered to the other party.


(c) No party shall be liable or responsible to the other party, nor be deemed to have defaulted under or breached this Agreement, for any failure or delay in fulfilling or performing any term of this Agreement (excluding any obligations to make payments hereunder), when and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by or results from acts beyond the impacted party’s (“Impacted Party”) reasonable control, including, without limitation, the following force majeure events (“Force Majeure Event(s)”): (a) acts of God; (b) flood, fire, earthquake, pandemic, epidemic or explosion; (c) war, invasion, hostilities (whether war is declared or not), terrorist threats or acts, riot or other civil unrest; (d) government order, law, or actions; (e) embargoes or blockades in effect on or after the date of this Agreement; (f) national or regional emergency; (g) strikes, labor stoppages or slowdowns, or other industrial disturbances; (h) shortage of adequate power or transportation facilities; and (i) other similar events beyond the reasonable control of the Impacted Party. The Impacted Party shall give notice within thirty (30) days of the Force Majeure Event to the other party, stating the period of time the occurrence is expected to continue. The Impacted Party shall use diligent efforts to end the failure or delay and ensure the effects of such Force Majeure Event are minimized. The Impacted Party shall resume the performance of its obligations as soon as reasonably practicable after the removal of the cause. In the event that the Impacted Party’s failure or delay remains uncured for a period of ninety (90) days following written notice given by it under this Section, either party may thereafter terminate this Agreement upon ninety (90) days’ written notice.]


(d) The rules and regulations posted at the Warehouse as well as Operational Procedural Policies are made part of this Agreement, and Client agrees to comply at all times with such rules and regulations. ZFWS shall have the right from time to time to amend such rules and regulations. In the event there is a conflict with the rules and regulations and policies with this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement shall control.


(e) Should any part of this agreement shall be rendered void by an appropriate authority, such invalidations shall not invalidate the remaining portions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect.


(f) No waiver by ZFWS of any of the provisions of this Agreement is effective unless explicitly set forth in writing and signed by ZFWS. No failure by ZFWS to exercise, or delay in exercising, any right, remedy, power, or privilege arising from this Agreement operates, or may be construed, as a waiver thereof. No single or partial exercise by ZFWS of any right, remedy, power, or privilege hereunder precludes any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, remedy, power, or privilege.


(g) ZFWS shall have the right to assign this Agreement, including all of its rights and obligations under this Agreement, at any time and without Client’s prior written consent, to (a) one or more of its affiliates or (b) a successor in interest in connection with ZFWS’s sale of all, or substantially all, of its assets or stock or in connection with a merger, consolidation or change of control. Client acknowledges and agrees that each affiliate of ZFWS is an intended third-party beneficiary of this Agreement.
