You must provide current, complete, and accurate contact and payment information for all Orders placed through the Site.

  2. By placing an Order for Offerings using the Site, you make a binding offer for a contract of sale with Dom’s. Your Order is not complete until we send you an email to confirm your Order. We reserve the right, without prior notice, to reject your offer, to refuse to accept an Order from you or any user, and/or to limit the purchase quantity on any Offering.  We do not guarantee the continued availability of any Offerings listed on the Site, and we reserve the right to offer and/or make substitutions of any out-of-stock Offerings.

Any promotions posted on the Site or otherwise communicated to you are good only for the date(s) indicated.

  3. You agree to pay the full amount of the prices or fees charged to you under each Order. You may choose to pay for your Order by credit card or any other payment method that may be supported by the Site from time to time. By placing an Order on the Site, you expressly authorize Dom’s, or a third-party payment processor on our behalf, to charge the method of payment that you have provided and to collect the full amount specified for the Offerings you purchase, including any applicable taxes, fees, and shipping or related charges. We may calculate taxes payable by you (if any) based on the billing information that you have provided at the time of purchase. All purchases are non-refundable and non-cancellable unless expressly indicated otherwise.

  4. The processing of your payments will be subject to the terms, conditions, and privacy policies of our third-party payment processor.  You agree that we will not be responsible for any failures of the third-party payment processor to adequately protect your payment information.  You acknowledge that we may change the third-party payment processor at any time, with or without notice to you, and move your information to other service providers that encrypt your information using secure socket layer technology (SSL) or other comparable security. 

  5. If applicable, pick-up, delivery, and tracking options of the purchased Offerings will be indicated at checkout. Unless expressly indicated otherwise, you are responsible for delivery charges, which will be displayed at checkout and may depend on variables such as Order value and shipping destinations. When Offerings are delivered to the shipping address provided at checkout, risk of loss and legal title to those Offerings will transfer to the recipient. We will not be responsible for loss of or damage to any Offerings once tendered to you at the store’s pickup location or, for delivery Orders, once deposited at the doorstep of the shipping address provided.  

  6. While we strive to ensure that all Offering descriptions, information, and pricing on the Site are complete, accurate, and current, they may occasionally be inaccurate, incomplete, or outdated. All Offering descriptions, information, and pricing are subject to change at any time without notice. We make no representation or warranty as to the accuracy, completeness, or currency of any descriptions, information, or pricing on the Site. For example, Offerings included on the Site may be unavailable or may actually carry a different price than that stated on the Site. The inclusion of any Offerings on the Site at a particular time does not imply or warrant that these Offerings will be available at any time or at any particular location.

8. USER SUBMISSIONS

  1. The Site may permit you to submit, upload, or otherwise provide your comments, inquiries, suggestions, reviews, pictures, feedback, or other information or content regarding your experience with Dom’s or our Offerings (“User Submissions”). By submitting, uploading, or otherwise providing any User Submissions, you grant to us a non-exclusive, transferable, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sublicensable right and license to use, copy, modify, translate, reformat, create derivative works of, display, perform, publish, distribute, and otherwise act with respect to your User Submissions, alone or as part of other works in any form, media, or technology, whether now known or hereafter developed, as we deem necessary or appropriate to: (i) provide the Site, Services, and Content; (ii) support our Offerings and businesses, including, without limitation, to further market, develop, and improve the Site, Services, Content, and Offerings, to create, develop, and/or improve other products and services, and to conduct research and analytics; and (iii) to otherwise conduct our and/or any of our third-party partners’ businesses (including by commercializing, and permitting third parties to commercialize, your User Submissions). You waive any “moral rights” or other rights with respect to attribution of authorship or integrity of materials regarding your User Submissions that you may have under any applicable law under any legal theory. You represent and warrant that you own, or otherwise have all rights, permissions, and authorizations necessary to post and grant to Dom’s and our licensees the foregoing license and rights under, your User Submissions, and that such use by Dom’s will not infringe, misappropriate, or otherwise violate any copyright, trademark, right of publicity, or any other intellectual property or proprietary rights of any third party.

  2. You are solely responsible for all of your User Submissions and for ensuring that they comply with these Terms and any applicable laws. By submitting or uploading your User Submissions, you accept sole liability and responsibility for any of your User Submissions that do not comply with these Terms and/or any applicable laws. Your User Submissions violate these Terms and are prohibited from the Site if they:

    • are harassing, threatening, abusive, libelous, defamatory, untruthful, misleading, or invasive of privacy or publicity rights;

    • contain hateful, violate, or racist terms or images or symbols, or glamorize the actions of individuals or groups advocating violence, ethnic cleansing, genocide, or similar activities;

    • include or reveal the personal information of another person;

    • contain a formula, instruction, or advice that could cause harm or injury; 

    • do not relate to Dom’s or the applicable Offering(s) and/or your experience as a customer of Dom’s;

    • are vulgar, obscene, profane, pornographic, or otherwise objectionable or in bad taste, as determined by us in our sole discretion; or

    • constitute or encourage conduct that would constitute fraud, a criminal offense, or infringement or violation of another person’s intellectual property or proprietary rights, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any applicable law or regulation.

  3. We have the right, but do not assume the obligation or responsibility, to review and monitor User Submissions, and to determine whether they comply with these Terms and applicable laws. In addition, we have the right in our sole discretion and for any reason whatsoever to edit, refuse to post, refuse to store, remove, or disable access to any User Submissions, including without limitation any User Submissions that constitute, or are likely to constitute, an infringement, misappropriation, or other violation of any copyright, trademark, right of publicity, or any other intellectual property or proprietary rights of any third party. We assume no liability for any User Submission that appears or is removed from the Site or elsewhere. We have no obligation to use any User Submission and may not use it at all.

  4. Any User Submission of any kind made by you or any other user or third party is made by the respective author(s) or distributor(s) and not by Dom’s. Other users and third parties may submit or post User Submissions that are inaccurate, misleading, or deceptive. We do not endorse and are not responsible for any User Submissions, and will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by your reliance on such User Submissions. A User Submission reflects the opinion of the person submitting it and may not reflect the opinion of Dom’s. Without limiting the foregoing, Dom’s specifically disclaims any liability concerning or relating to your contribution of, use of, or reliance on any User Submission and any actions resulting from your participation in any part of the Site, including, without limitation, any objectionable User Submission.

9. DIGITAL MILLENNIUM COPYRIGHT ACT

  1. We respect the intellectual property rights of others and expect users to do the same. In appropriate circumstances and at our sole discretion, we may remove and/or disable access to Content on the Site that may be infringing or the subject of infringing activity. In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998, Title 17 of the United States Code, Section 512 (“DMCA”), we will respond promptly to claims of copyright infringement that are reported to the agent that we have designated to receive notifications of claims infringement (our “Designated Agent”). Our Designated Agent may be reached via email at: legal@domschicago.com, or by writing to us at: legal@domschicago.com. If you are a copyright owner (or authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner) and have a good faith belief that your work’s copyright has been infringed, please report your notice of infringement to us by providing our Designated Agent with a written notification of claimed infringement that includes:

  • An identification of the copyrighted work and the location on the Site of the allegedly infringing work.

  • Your name and contact information, including, without limitation, telephone number, mailing address, and email address.

  • A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.

  • A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest.

  • A statement, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.

Please note that Section 512(f) of the DMCA may impose liability for damages on any person who knowingly sends meritless notices of infringement. Please do not make false claims. Any information or correspondence that you provide to us may be shared with third parties, including the person who provided us with the allegedly infringing material. 

Upon receipt of a bona fide infringement notification by our Designated Agent, we may remove or disable access to the infringing material, notify the user that we have removed or disabled access to the material, and/or terminate such user’s access to the Site (for repeat offenders).

10. TERMINATION OF ACCESS

  1. We may, in our sole discretion, without liability, and without notice to you, immediately suspend, limit, and/or terminate your access to the Site, the Services, and/or your Account for any reason, including, without limitation: (i) if we believe in our sole discretion that you have violated these Terms or any applicable laws or regulations; (ii) at the request of law enforcement, government agencies, or courts; (iii) if you ask us to close your Account; (iv) if we discontinue or materially modify the Site or the Services (or any part thereof); or (v) if we believe in our sole discretion that your use or access to the Site, the Services, or your Account may create risk (including, but not limited to, legal risk) for us, our respective affiliates or contractual partners, or other users. Upon any termination, you will lose the right to access and use the Site and Services and your Account will be closed.

  2. Any suspension or termination shall not affect your obligations to us under these Terms.

NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU FROM US OR THROUGH OR FROM THE SITE OR SERVICES SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THESE TERMS.

  2. We may use third parties to provide our Offerings, as well as certain features and services accessible through the Site and Services. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR THEIR ACTS OR OMISSIONS. 

16. ARBITRATION AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION AGREEMENT

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION 16 CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.

  1. You agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity thereof or the use of the Site or Services (collectively, “Disputes“) will be resolved exclusively by final, binding arbitration between you and Dom’s, except that each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights, or where a party’s conduct may cause the other irreparable injury. The provisions of this Section 16 constitute the parties’ written agreement to arbitrate Disputes under the Federal Arbitration Act. 

  2. The arbitration shall be administered by the Judicial Arbitration & Mediation Services (“JAMS”) and shall be heard by a single arbitrator, pursuant to the Arbitration Rules and Procedures then in effect (the “JAMS Rules”), except as modified by this Section 16. 

  3. To begin an arbitration proceeding, a party must submit the Dispute by making a demand for arbitration, as detailed at https://www.jamsadr.com/, and simultaneously send a copy of the completed demand to the other party. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the JAMS rules. Dom’s will reimburse those fees for Disputes totaling less than $10,000 if you are the prevailing party in such arbitration. Dom’s will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that a Dispute initiated by you is frivolous. The arbitration will be conducted based upon written submissions, unless you request and/or the arbitrator determines that a telephone or in-person hearing is necessary. If the arbitrator grants the request or determines that an in-person hearing is necessary, the hearing will proceed in Cook County, Illinois, unless the arbitrator determines or Dom’s agrees that the matter should proceed in the county where you reside.

  4. The arbitrator will apply and be bound by these Terms, apply applicable law and the facts, and issue a reasoned award within the time frame specified in the JAMS Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. You and Dom’s also agree that the arbitrator may not award multiple or punitive damages. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. 

  5. EACH PARTY AGREES THAT IT SHALL BRING ANY DISPUTE AGAINST THE OTHER PARTY IN ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, OR AS AN ASSOCIATION. IN ADDITION, EACH PARTY AGREES THAT DISPUTES SHALL BE ARBITRATED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. THE ARBITRATOR DOES NOT HAVE THE POWER TO VARY THESE PROVISIONS.

17. MISCELLANEOUS

  1. These Terms and the Privacy Policy (as each may be revised and amended from time to time according to their respective terms) collectively constitute the entire agreement with respect to your access to and use of the Site, Services, and Content.

  2. Our electronically or otherwise properly stored copy of these Terms will be deemed to be the true, complete, valid, authentic, and enforceable copy, and you agree that you will not contest the admissibility or enforceability of our copy of these Terms in connection with any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to these Terms.

  3. These Terms shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Illinois without regard to its conflict of laws rules that would result in the application of the laws of a jurisdiction other than the State of Illinois. If for any reason a Dispute proceeds in court, you and Dom’s: (i) agree that any such Dispute may only be instituted in a state or federal court located in Cook County, Illinois and waive any defenses or objections based on the jurisdiction, venue, or convenience of this exclusive venue; (ii) irrevocably consent and submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts for resolution of such Disputes; and (iii) AGREE TO WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY.

  4. We may assign our rights and obligations under these Terms, in whole or in part, at any time to any third party without notice.  You may not assign these Terms or any rights or obligations hereunder without our prior written consent.  

  5. Our waiver of any breach of these Terms will not be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach thereof.

  6. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of these Terms will not be affected, and the invalid, illegal, or unenforceable provision will be replaced by such valid and enforceable provision as comes closest to the intention underlying the invalid, illegal, or enforceable provision.

  7. Possible evidence of use of the Site or Services for illegal purposes will be provided to law enforcement authorities.

  8. Discontinuation of use of the Site and Services is your sole right and remedy for any dissatisfaction with the Site, Services, or any of the Content.
