SALE OF ALCOHOL POLICY
Quirky.im is a marketplace platform. It routes orders from customers to specific sellers, some of whom are licenced to sell alcohol.
The Isle of Man’s Licensing Forum’s “Guidance for the Remote Sales of Alcohol” states:
“Remote sales must be from a licenced premises
Section 16 of the Sale of Goods Act 1983 defines a ‘point of sale’ as taking place only when the specific product being sold has been ascertained. In other words, even if the internet server or the call centre taking the order by telephone is located somewhere else, it is the place where the alcohol is stored and appropriated for that specific sale where the sale is deemed to take place.”
Quirky.im is not required to hold a liquor license. It is the sellers who are making the sale and fulfilling the orders who need to hold and adhere to the licencing regulations. This position has been reviewed and verified by the Isle of Man’s Police Alcohol Unit.
