Age Restricted Products

Age-restricted products are goods and services for which there is a minimum legal age to buy. Trading Standards has a duty to enforce the law relating to a number of age restricted products. It is the responsibility of retailers to ensure they do not sell age-restricted products online to people who are under the minimum legal age.

Quality

Quality is paramount to our business. We value and understand our customers’ requirements. We strive to provide a product which meets and even exceeds their expectations. We are committed to continuous, data driven decisions and improvements, and have established a quality management system which provides a framework for measuring and improving our business & product performance.

Anonymity

We are committed to our customers’ and their end-users’ anonymity. We will not sell sensitive personal or business information to third-parties, or store sensitive personal or business information that is required for purposes other than age-verification. All data is securely stored in a way which complies with General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

Customer Requirements

We review the requirements, prior to our commitment to supply. This review ensures:

  • Product requirements are defined and met.
  • Contractual or order requirements, differing from those previously expressed, are resolved.
  • We have the ability to meet the defined requirements, and/or the claims for the products and services it offers.
  • Risks have been identified and considered.
