Age Verification

At The Cheese Wedge Co, we are committed to responsible retailing and ensuring that we only sell alcohol to customers who are of legal drinking age. To help us achieve this, we have partnered with AgeChecked, a leading age verification service provider. This page aims to explain the reasons behind our choice and the benefits of using AgeChecked for our age verification process.

Why AgeChecked?
Compliance with UK law:

In the United Kingdom, it is illegal to sell alcohol to anyone under the age of 18. Failure to comply with this law can lead to significant fines and penalties for both the seller and the buyer. AgeChecked is an approved provider of age verification services, which means that using their service helps us adhere to the legal requirements and maintain a responsible retailing environment.

Robust and accurate age verification:

AgeChecked uses a range of data sources and verification methods to determine the age of our customers accurately. These include checking public records, credit reference agency data, and other trustworthy sources. This ensures that we can confirm our customers' ages quickly and with minimal inconvenience to them, whilst maintaining a high level of accuracy.

Data protection and privacy:

We understand that protecting our customers' personal information is essential. AgeChecked is fully compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018. By using their service, we can guarantee that our customers' data is processed securely and in accordance with all applicable privacy laws.
