When many people switch to vaping they look for a tobacco or menthol flavour that closely matches the flavour of the cigarette brand they have been using. But over time, and as people move further away from smoking, most vapers move away from pure tobacco flavours.
The majority of alternative flavours have nothing to do with tobacco at all. So with the tobacconist range, top US e-liquid manufacturer Element have bridged the gap by marrying and at times softening the earthier tones of tobacco with a range of sophisticated flavours, all chosen to produce an enhanced, enriched and balanced flavour rather than to hide the tobacco altogether.
Each e-liquid carries a unique taste yet with an undertone of rich tobacco running through them. They also come with a high VG ratio, offering the chance to enjoy the large clouds of vapour you can’t usually enjoy with a basic tobacco flavour. Learn more about VG/PG ratios.
We care about the e-liquid we sell. When it comes to safety, quality-testing and flavour, no one does it better. Find out more here.
To our website you look under 18.
So, as a responsible retailer, we need to check your age.
You'll only need to do this once and it takes less than a minute.
Our age verification system is quick and easy to complete. Simply enter your date of birth, and our system will use the information from your order to do the rest.
On rare occasions, you might find that you don’t succeed on first try. Don’t worry - our super-friendly customer service team is on hand to ensure that, as long as you are 18 or over, you can still get your vaping supplies!
Once you have confirmed your age we won’t usually need to check again. (Exceptions can occur, for example if you change your name).
(You can help us check your age by ensuring your name and address are spelt absolutely correctly in the order form :) )
How your data is used
We use as little data as possible. The only data that ECigaretteDirect keep is information needed to send your order, and your date of birth (so we only have to check once!)
Your age is checked using Experian, which will check the information you provide against information in existing records to confirm you are over 18. No credit check is performed but a record of the search will be visible to you on your credit report. This will not affect your ability to get credit.
Why do we check age?
As you may know, there has been some concern that under-18’s may try vaping.
This is against both our company policy and the law.
And as responsible retailers, we need to do everything we can to ensure that every customer is of legal age.
For more information, see our Terms and Conditions.
Your privacy is important to us, and your personal information should remain just that - personal.
See the little green lock in the search bar? That’s our security certificate (SSL or secure socket layer to be precise). It encrypts all the information you enter so that no-one else can see it.
Information you provide for age verification is sent securely to Experian and no details of the checks are stored in our system. Ever.
If you have any concerns, please call our friendly customer services team on 01792 852843 (Mon - Fri, 9am - 5pm).
