FDA AGE VERIFICATION FOR ENDS (Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems) AND TOBACCO PRODUCTS
Sweet Southern Vapes is required to verify our customers are of legal age to purchase tobacco products in their state of residence. Sweet Southern Vapes does this using an independent online age checking service.
The verification is performed on all orders that contain ENDS products and products having nicotine (e-liquid).
The process is simple and takes no more than 20 seconds. Once you verify for the first time it takes mere seconds on your next purchases.
The verification process pops up automatically just before you confirm your purchase. Please note that none of your PII (personally identifying information) is kept on our server or website. Our website simply receives a notice that your age is verified so the sale can be completed. This is not unlike what happens when you use a credit card to make a purchase.
Therefore, please allow sufficient time for the response. Things like internet congestion can cause a credit card or age verification process to take up to 20 seconds to complete. Most of the time that is not the case. The process happens much faster.
We apologize for the inconvenience that this causes. We hope you do not go to another website that is not yet complying with the law.
Age check is now mandatory, so we ask that you understand how this extra step is inconvenient for us too. It also adds an extra cost that we DO NOT pass on to you, our customers.
We use Age Checker (https://agechecker.net) as our age verification provider.
Unfortunately this does adds extra time to your checkout, but we must comply with FDA regulations.
Thank you for your patience as we find the most convenient and cost effective way to comply with FDA rules.
