Age Verification Service

Use our online Age Verification Service to ensure your customers are legally old enough to buy your products and services.Read More

UK law states that any business selling age-restricted products or services – either online or over the counter – MUST verify their customers are 18 or over. This includes sales of tobacco, vapes, alcohol, corrosive substances, paint thinners, adult computer games and prescription tablets.

Failure to age-check customers for age-restricted products or services can result in companies being prosecuted.

You can verify a person's age online using our extensive and accurate data, drawn from public sources like the UK Electoral Roll and Directory Enquiries. Age checks cost 10 credits.
