We are committed to only selling our products to adults who meet the legal age requirement to purchase tobacco products. As a part of meeting that commitment, we use a non-affiliated third party age and identity verification company, Veratad Technologies, LLC, to assure that you are of legal age to purchase our products and are who you say you are.
Age Verification services use multiple trusted data sources containing billions of public records to return an age validation based on the personal information submitted by you. This service is specifically designed to validate and protect your identity while maintaining the highest level of consumer privacy when processing online transactions.
Access to the public records allows them to validate the information you provide and in some cases, depending on the nature of your purchase, present a series of multiple choice questions based on non-credit related (“out-of-wallet”) historical facts about you as an individual. These facts are obtained by instantaneously scanning billions of public records from trusted data sources containing information that would not generally be found in your wallet if lost or stolen.
Veratad’s secure 256bit 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.
A small percentage of shoppers may not be verifiable due to limited availability of publicly available information contained within Age Verification databases. If this happens, we will attempt to contact you via phone and 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.
