Age Verification
The products that we sell on our site are highly regulated and age restricted. We are required and committed to preventing sales to anyone under the legal purchasing age. We will only send you marketing materials and information that encourage or facilitate a purchase of our products after you have certified that 1) you are a of legal purchasing age for the product you wish to purchase; 2) that you wish to be added to our mailing list for the purpose of receiving transactional offers and advertising from a tobacco-regulated company; and 3) that you understand that providing false information may constitute a violation of the law.
Before you can make a purchase through our site, we will verify your age through a non-affiliated third-party company to perform an age and identify verification check for adherence to this requirement. We utilize these trusted verification services to verify the information that you provide and ensure that you qualify to access and purchase products from our site. This process has been developed with the customer’s privacy in mind with detailed information neither shared nor accessible.
In some cases, we may not be able to verify your age and/or identity through a verification service. In such case, we will be required to review your state identification card. You will be asked to upload a legible photograph of your identification that clearly shows your name, age, and shipping address held up next to your face. If proper identification cannot be given, your order will not be accepted. For more information on our Age Verification process, click here.

California Consumer Privacy Act Rights (“CCPA”)
California residents have the right to:
  • Request and receive disclosure of our personal information collection practices during the prior 12 months, including the categories of personal information we collect, the categories of sources of such information, our business purpose for collecting or sharing such information, and the categories of third parties with whom we share such information;
  • Request and receive a copy of the personal information we have collected about them during the prior 12 months;
  • Request and receive disclosure of our information sharing practices during the prior 12 months, including a list of the categories of personal information sold with the category of third-party recipients and a list of the categories of personal information that we disclosed for a business purpose;
  • Request that we not sell personal information about them; and
  • Request that we delete (and direct our service providers to delete) their personal information subject to certain exceptions.
For purposes of the CCPA personal information means information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular California resident or household.
In order to make a request for disclosure California residents may contact us by visiting our Help Desk. We will ask you for information that allows us to reasonably verify your identity (that you are the person about whom we collected personal information) and will use that information only for that purpose. We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity and confirm that the personal information relates to you.
You may make a request up to twice within a 12-month period. We will endeavor to respond within forty-five days of receipt of your request, but if we require more time (up to an additional forty-five days) we will notify you of our need for additional time.
For requests for a copy of the personal information we have collected during the 12 months prior to your request we will endeavor to provide the information in a format that is readily useable, including by mailing you a paper copy or providing an electronic copy to your registered account, if you have registered an account with us.
We will not discriminate against you as a result of your exercise of any of these rights.
We do not provide personal information to third parties in exchange for monetary consideration, but during the past 12 months, we have disclosed data to certain third parties that provide us with services such as assisting with marketing, data analysis and security, which may fall under the definition of “consideration” and be considered a “sale” under the CCPA.
Our site is not intended for individuals under the age of 21. We do not knowingly collect or solicit any information from anyone under the age of 21 on this site. Under CCPA, if you would like to instruct us not to sell your personal information, please visit our Help Desk. We do not sell personal information of individuals we actually know are less than 21 years of age. Once we receive your Do-Not-Sell request we will wait at least 12 months before asking you to reauthorize personal information sales.
During the past 12 months, we have collected the following categories of information from the listed sources, used it for the listed business purposes and shared it with the listed categories of third parties. The categories of information include information we collect from our website visitors, registered users, employees, vendors, suppliers and any other person that interacts with us either online or offline. Not all information is collected about all individuals. For instance, we may collect different information from applicants for employment or from vendors or from customers.
