agents and suppliers agree to.

LiquorConnect.com is an e-commerce web site developed by Connect Logistics Services to provide quick and easy
access to information related to their business.

With the increased proliferation of computer viruses and general misuse of the internet it has become necessary for
Connect Logistics Services to establish some strict policies for the fair use of LiquorConnect.com.

LiquorConnect.com has been designed with the capacity to handle our customer volumes with an average order
pattern and the ability to handle normal peak loads.

         Ordering:

         1.   You must not place an order or run the “check quantity” function for orders outside your normal
              ordering pattern without first contacting Customer Service.

         2.   The “check quantity” function should not be run for a large number of items (say more than 100) you
              do not intend to order.

    Note: As indicated previously, LiquorConnect.com has been designed to handle normal peak loads. Any
    significant variation from this may cause serious performance issues and affect the use for all customers.

label.

    As per AGLC - effective October 10, 2003:

•   Private Label products can be fully allocated at the request of the agent / supplier.

•   Private label products which comply with AGLC policies may exceed the allocation limit of 1,000 cases of sales
    per Product Code.

•   Agents / Suppliers must indicate to the AGLC if the product is a Private Label. An example of the label must

this service.

    As per AGLC - effective October 10, 2003:

•   Allocation of a product will be limited to 1,000 cases per Product Code in a calendar year

•   Allocated products that meet the 1,000 cases or less criteria will be printed in the Liquor Wholesale Price List,
    unless the total on-hand inventory of the product is fully allocated. In these cases, the products will not be
    printed in Liquor Wholesale Price List.

•   The AGLC, at its sole discretion, may approve exceptions to the limit of 1,000 cases for special and / or unique
    products or circumstances (e.g. Beaujolais Nouveau). Requests for exceptions must be approved with each
    order. These exceptions will be approved sparingly.

liquor agent / supplier is responsible to ensure the following:

        All Fully Allocated requests must be completed prior to receipt of the product at CLS, and must
        remain fully allocated while inventory is on hand. Failure to Pre-Allocate leaves the product
        unallocated, unprotected and available for ordering by ANY customer.

        Neither the AGLC nor CLS will be held responsible for the purchase of product (at any
        price) left unallocated.

        faxed or e-mailed:

                                         Shipping Container Codes (SCC)
                                             SCC / Bar Code Labeling

Connect Logistics requires that all products arriving in the warehouse are correctly labeled with the appropriate
Shipping Container Codes (SCC) as per CALJ (Canadian Association of Liquor Jurisdictions) and ECCC (Electronic
Commerce Council of Canada) standards.

The complete CALJ document “Product Identification Standards for use in the Distribution of Beverage Alcohol” can
be viewed or printed by going to:
        www.ConnectLogistics.ca
        ⇒ CLS Alberta
        ⇒ Links
        ⇒ Industry
        ⇒ Bar Coding: Canadian Liquor Bar Coding Standards (Note: Adobe PDF Document)

SCC’s and UPC’s (Universal Product Code) are maintained on file with the AGLC.           It is very important that all
information is valid and correct.

•    If a product arrives at Connect Logistics and the SCC on the case has not been given to the AGLC (and
     therefore is not on file) Connect Logistics will advise the AGLC and that number will be added to the file. There
     will be no labeling charge associated with this situation.

•    If an SCC is found not to meet minimum standards set out in the CALJ document, Connect Logistics will label
     and charge the agent as per Connect Logistics:

     Warehouse Rates, Alberta, Schedule (B), Item 11(a) Bar Code Labeling (inbound) $0.40 per case – includes
     material, equipment and labour costs.

Crème, Peach Vodka Cooler/Peche Boisson a La Vodka, Rum/Rhum, Canadian Whisky Canadien. NOTE: a number
of common product names are considered bilingual either because they are recognized exemptions and/or because

The size of net quantity must appear in metric units of volume. If the quantity is less than 1 litre, it must be
shown in millilitres, i.e. 750 ml; if greater than or equal to 1 litre, it must be shown in litres, i.e. 2 L. IMPORTANT

3.   Alcohol by Volume Declaration

The alcohol by volume declaration must appear in the following format: 12% alc. / vol. (periods must follow both
