4. The Service
4.1 SIP provides a service wherein Sippers subscribe to gain access to SIP’s list of Partner establishments (“SIP Spots”). The benefit received from the subscription is that a Sipper may redeem one $2 Alcoholic Drink every day, before tax. A new coupon to redeem a Drink is distributed each day. The SIP Spots offer the Sippers an Alcoholic Drink for the minimal legal price allowed for the sale of Alcoholic Drinks in the jurisdiction the Sipper is using the Service. If the relevant law dictates that there are multiple minimum price points for different servings of Alcoholic Drinks, then those price points shall apply and be complied with.
4.2 SIP does not engage in or permit practices that may tend to encourage patrons’ immoderate consumption of liquor, in accordance to the Liquor Licence Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. L.19. SIP allows a Sipper to redeem only one single alcoholic beverage each day.
4.3 In Ontario, the legal minimum price for the sale of one serving of Alcoholic Drinks is $2, inclusive of applicable taxes, according to the Liquor Licence Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. L.19 and outlined in section 4.3.1 of these Terms and Conditions. Any Sipper who wishes to redeem an Alcoholic Drink, and any SIP Spot which serves an alcoholic drink to a Sipper, must pay and charge the $2, respectively. SIP Spots will charge $2 for an Alcoholic Drink before any applicable taxes. Ontario law dictates that there are multiple minimum price points for different servings of Alcoholic Drinks that shall apply and be complied with by both the Sipper and SIP Spot as outlined in section 4.3.2 of these Terms and Conditions.
4.3.1 For the purposes of the Liquor Licence Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. L.19, a serving of liquor is prescribed, by volume and type, as follows:
1. 341 ml (12 oz.) of beer, cider or cooler. 2. 29 ml (1 oz.) of spirits.
3. 142 ml (5 oz.) of wine.
4. 85 ml (3oz.) of fortified wine.
4.3.2 If a licence holder offers for sale a serving of liquor that differs from the volume prescribed in Liquor Licence Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. L.19, the minimum price for that serving shall increase or decrease in direct proportion to the difference in volume of liquor contained in that serving. Figure 1. provides an example of different minimum pricing per volume of liquor.
