Document Ref: ML-ARGP | Version: 1.0 | Last Updated & Approved: 22/12/2022 | Review Period: 12 months | Next Review: 22/12/2023
Laws prohibit the sale of certain products to minors under the age of 18. This guidance is designed to take you through the requirements of the law and assist in compliance for the products that we sell. As a distributor of many tooling goods, we offer a range of bladed items and other products which are restricted for sale to persons over the age of 18. Age restrictions apply to some goods we supply. By ordering these goods, you are confirming that you are over 18 and that the person receiving the delivery, or collecting the goods, is also over 18. We will carry out age checks for all orders containing age-restricted items, and you may need to provide official documents as proof of age, either in person or through our third-party partners ‘VerifyMyAge’.
VerifyMyAge takes security seriously. It operates as the layer above deep-tech, creating an age assurance ecosystem of data, deep-tech, and artificial intelligence partners, resulting in the most comprehensive and effective age verification and estimation solution available. Software includes 256-bit SSL encryption, combined with independent audits to ensure the highest standards of information security to keep customer’s data safe and secure.
If VerifyMyAge cannot verify the customer, they will be asked to continue to the verification process. The customer will be asked to click continue, where they will be loaded into the verification flow via a new browser tab. Should a customer not verify when prompted, they will receive an email reminder containing a unique link 15 minutes after checkout.
Upon successful verification, the customer refreshes the order screen to display a successful verification notice. Physical proof of age may also be required at the point of delivery. We can cancel your order for age-restricted items if we have good reason to believe you do not meet the relevant age restriction.
Once a customer is verified with VerifyMyAge, they stay verified across any VerifyMyAge-integrated platform.
