Youth Protection 18+
Since April 1, 2016, amendments to the Youth Protection Act apply, which i.a. restrict the online trade in electronic cigarettes, shisha, tobacco, accessories and liquids. The sale of tobacco as ofApril 1, 2016, is allowed only to persons older than 18 years.
Pursuant to §10 (3) of the Youth Protection Act, we are obliged to carry out a two-stage verification of your age in the ordering process as well as an age-related visual inspection upon package delivery.
According to Bundestag printed paper 18/6858, the age verification during the ordering process must be performed by appropriate technical means, such as checking routines for determining the age of majority on the basis of the identity card number (so-called perso-check) or verified address data (for example Schufa-Q-Bit-Check).
To determine the age of majority, we use the following test routines:
- Old and new identity card
- a residence permit
- German passport
The age verification plug-in used is FRASPY from TOOLPIXX, which has been available on the market since November 2015 and is used by many other e-cigarette retailers. Designed specifically for the e-cigarette and SHISHA industry, FRASPY is enjoying increasing popularity in other industries, such as alcohol, eSports and SexToys.
FRASPY stands for many shop systems such as: Shopware, JTL, Gambio, WooCommerce, Prestashop, Oxide, Magento, Modified Shop, XTCommerce, LightSpeed HQ, VersaCommerce, SUPR, Jimdo and much more.
