4. AGE VERIFICATION
Our Site and the products sold are not intended for any minors under the legal purchasing age. We are committed to preventing any sales to minors. We will only encourage purchases from people who are of legal purchasing age for our products and who opt in to our mailing list wishing to receive communications and understanding that they will be coming from a tobacco-regulated company.
Before you can make a purchase, create an account, or sign up for our newsletter, we will use a non-affiliated third-party company to perform age & identity verification. This trusted service will verify the information you provide and allow you to access and purchase products from the website. Most of the time, this verification system will operate in the background and will not intrude on your experience. In some cases, you may be required to provide additional information to verify your identity. This information is uploaded and processed by our partner’s secure database and we do not ever store that information on our own servers or database.
5. BEHAVIORAL ADVERTISING

For more information about how targeted advertising works, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s (“NAI”) educational page at http://www.networkadvertising.org/understanding-online-advertising/how-does-it-work.
You can opt out of targeted advertising by:
