Why do WV Vapes need to verify your age?
It is illegal to sell electronic cigarettes or any vape product which contains or can be used to deliver nicotine, to any person under the age of 18. Due to this law which was implemented on 20th May 2017; WV Vapes are required to verify the age of any customer wishing to purchase our products.
How do we verify your age?
We use 1account for our age verification. Where you have asked us to provide an age restricted product or service, you consent to allow us to share your information with, and collect information from, One Account Mobile Limited (1account) and third-party providers of identity data to 1account. This consent is necessary for 1account to verify that you meet the minimum age and identity verification requirements as determined by relevant UK age restriction legislation.
You consent to allow 1account to retain relevant data for the purpose of future verification. All data processed by 1account is subject to appropriate security measures. Data retained by 1account is subject to periodic review to ensure it is not held for longer than necessary. You can find information about 1account and how they manage your personal data by visiting their website: 1account.net.
Please note that is simply an ID check and not a credit check so will not affect your credit score in any way.
The good news is that once you have been verified once, you won’t have to do this again. On every subsequent visit you just need to simply log in and we will remember your age verified status.
If for any reason, such as a recent change of address or name change we not able to confirm your age, we will contact you and ask you to use the 1account verification system to verify you are over the age of 18.
4 options are available:

Alternatively you can provide us with a valid proof of age document such as a UK Drivers License or Passport.
If you do not wish to provide us with this information, we are able to cancel and refund your order on request.
