PodVapes takes its legal, moral and health responsibilities very seriously and we comply strictly with the legal requirements in each jurisdiction in which we operate.
We have an age gate on our website, use advanced age verification technology, require an adult signature on all deliveries, and also display prominent nicotine warnings for all products containing nicotine. All of these measures help to prevent youth vaping.
You must be 18 or older to enter the PodVapes.co.nz website and use the PodVapes.co.nz online store. As you enter our site, you must confirm that you are 18 years old or more.
You must also agree to be ‘age verified’. This will happen prior to any purchase you may choose to make in the PodVapes online store.
PodVapes uses Cloudcheck electronic verification technology from Verifi Identity Services. Cloudcheck provides us with a legally accepted record showing that you have been age verified.
For most customers, all that is required is a name, date of birth and address and ID number (e.g. drivers license).
Once you have been verified at PodVapes once you won't be asked to submit your details again. All that is required is that you use the same email address.
DELIVERIES REQUIRE ADULT SIGNATURES
All deliveries of PodVapes products require an adult to sign for them prior to the delivery being completed.
Please note, in this current COVID19 environment, this requirement is carefully managed by our delivery agents. They decide the safest and most appropriate method to legally make the delivery to you.
Our vaping and e-cigarette products are often used as a nicotine replacement therapy for smokers. Our products contain nicotine which is an addictive chemical.
Nicotine warnings are prominently displayed on our website, in our online store and on all products we provide. These are important and should not be ignored.
Effects of Nicotine
Nicotine can cause an increase in blood pressure, heart rate, flow of blood to the heart and a narrowing of the arteries. Nicotine can also contribute to hardening of the arterial walls, which may lead to a heart attack.
Pregnant Women Should Not Vape
As a special note, nicotine should not be consumed by pregnant women. According to the CDC, nicotine is a health danger for pregnant women and developing babies, and can damage a developing baby's brain and lungs. Also, some of the flavorings used in e-cigarettes may be harmful to a developing baby. As such, pregnant women should not consume our products.
