Age Verification

In an effort to stay compliant with the current FDA and individual State regulations, will now require your age to be verified by a third party (Veratad Technologies) to maintain and enforce the minimum age limits set forth by the FDA and/or each individual State, in order to purchase tobacco products online. Veratad's age verification solution responsibly compares an online visitor’s data entry against billions of records from multiple trusted data sources to verify a visitor's age for U.S. citizens and for over 3 billion citizens in 170 countries. Veratad's AgeMatch solution has been reviewed by government and regulatory agencies including the U.S. Department of Justice as well as US CongressmenStates Attorney General Offices and other regulatory agencies. 

Why do we verify your age? is committed to only selling our products to adults. As a part of meeting that commitment, we use a non-affiliated third party company, Veratad Technologies, LLC, to verify that you are who you say you are and to assure that you are of minimum age based on the current legislation in your billing and shipping address locations.

How does Veratad’s Age Verification work?

Veratad’s AgeMatch Age Verification services use multiple trusted data sources containing billions of public records to return an age validation based on the personal information you submit. This service is specifically designed to validate and protect your identity while maintaining the highest level of consumer privacy when processing online transactions.

Is the information I provide secure?

Absolutely! Veratad’s secure 256 bit encryption technology ensures the safe delivery of the information you provide online. In addition, Veratad DOES NOT store your sensitive personal information or share (or sell) any data with other third parties. This practice assures you that unauthorized parties cannot gain access to your sensitive personal information.

What happens if I cannot be verified by the Age Verification process?

A small percentage of shoppers may not be verifiable due to limited availability of publicly available information contained within the Age Verification databases. If this happens, we will attempt to contact you via phone, mail or email to verify your age. To do this, we typically require a copy of your driver’s license or some other form of government issued ID that verifies your date of birth. Once we receive your information your order is shipped. Of course, all your information is confidential and once your age is verified, we’ll never request it again.
