In England, it is illegal to sell age restricted products to any persons under the age of 18. We will uphold the law and help to prevent the sale of Age restricted products including nicotine, e-cigarettes and vaping related products to minors.
We use the services provided by 1account to certify that all people shopping with VIP Vapers are age verified at the point of sale. When placing an order online for postage, click and collect or our local delivery service, 1account will confirm your age digitally, this way, we can be certain that we are complying with the law.
Our digital age verification checks will be carried out once your order is completed.
After you have placed an order, you will reach an order confirmation page. If you have not previously been verified by 1account, you can expect to see a pop up window, this will ask you to input some details about yourself and may ask for you for your date of birth, phone number and e-mail address.
The 1account system will then confirm your identify by comparing it to records held on the electoral register, API, and KYC (know your customer).
If the 1account system cannot verify you, it will ask you to provide more information and this may include your billing address, driving license number and debit card number.
Once the 1account system has been able to verify that the person placing the order is over 18 years old, your account will be updated. Once you have completed the age verification, you will be able to simply check out as normal for all future orders and should not be asked to resubmit this information.
We want to make this process easy for all our customers.
Please note, orders will not be processed, delivered or posted until you have been age verified. If a person trying to use our website to buy age restricted products fails the age verification, and cannot provide a valid form of ID upon request, your order will be cancelled and a full refund processed.
Rest assured, 1account is fully compliant with the data protection act 2018 (GDPR). We do not have access to any information that you input into the verification pop up, we only see what you share directly with us on our website. Thank you for your continued custom and understanding!
