8. AGE VERIFICATION
Electric Tobacconist’s e-cigarette and e-liquid products are designed strictly for adult recreational use. They are not intended for anyone who is below the legal smoking age in their jurisdiction.
We use third-party age verification systems in accordance with federal and state law. If necessary, we reserve the right to ask for identification. You must be of legal smoking age in the locality in which you reside in order to purchase electronic cigarette and vaping products from this Site.
When credit card or billing address verification is unable to match you to our third-party database, we will be required to review your state identification card. You will be asked to upload a legible copy of your identification that clearly shows your name, age, and shipping address. If proper identification cannot be provided (i.e., a full name that matches the full name on your Electric Tobacconist account), your order will not be accepted. Note that this option may not be available for all states. For those states where we do not accept identification for the purposes of age verification, if we are unable to verify your age through our third-party database, your order will not be accepted.
We reserve the right to use any personal information provided by you to carry out and conduct relevant age verification checks. As part of checks made, we may utilize third-party age verification services, data from various credit reference agencies, the electoral roll, and other databases or agencies.

16. APPLICABLE LAW
By visiting the Site, you agree that the laws of the State of Colorado without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Electric Tobacconist or its affiliates.
Read this Section carefully because it requires the parties to arbitrate their disputes and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from Electric Tobacconist. For any dispute with Electric Tobacconist, you agree to first contact us via email and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally.
Arbitration. In the unlikely event that we have not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after sixty (60) days, you and Electric Tobacconist each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms, the breach or alleged breach thereof, your use of the Site, or your purchase or use of purchased from Electric Tobacconist (collectively, "Claims"), by binding arbitration by JAMS, under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein (including the exclusion of any claims brought by Electric Tobacconist for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided in Section 18 below).
JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted in Denver, Colorado, unless you and Electric Tobacconist agree otherwise. If you are an individual using products or services provided by Electric Tobacconist, or the Site for non-commercial purposes: (i) JAMS may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from JAMS; (ii) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorney's fees, and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; and (iii) you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction consistent with the requirements in Section 18 below.
Class Action and Jury Trial Waiver. With respect to all persons and entities, regardless of whether they have obtained products or services provided by Electric Tobacconist or used the Site for personal, commercial or other purposes, all claims must be brought in the parties' individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, collective action, private attorney general action or other representative proceeding. This waiver applies to class arbitration, and, unless Electric Tobacconist agrees otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims.
You agree that, by entering into this agreement, you and Electric Tobacconist are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action, collective action, private attorney general action, or other representative proceeding of any kind.
18. GOVERNING LAW AND VENUE
These Terms and Conditions will be governed by and interpreted under the laws of the State of Colorado, USA, without regard to its principles of conflict of laws. Exclusive venue for any action to enforce an arbitral award rendered pursuant to these Terms and Conditions will be the state or federal courts of Boulder, Colorado. You agree that Boulder, Colorado, is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision in Section 17 is found to be unenforceable. You agree not to bring any such actions in any other venue and you expressly agree to waive all objections to these venues.
You expressly consent to be subject to the personal jurisdiction of the state and federal courts of Colorado. You agree that: (i) the Site and products and services provided by Electric Tobacconist shall be deemed solely based in Colorado; and (ii) the Site and Electric Tobacconist services shall be deemed passive ones that do not give rise to personal jurisdiction over Electric Tobacconist, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than Colorado.
The parties acknowledge that these Terms evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding paragraphs with respect to applicable substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to these Terms shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). THE APPLICATION OF THE UNITED NATIONS CONVENTION ON CONTRACTS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL SALE OF GOODS IS EXPRESSLY EXCLUDED.
We reserve the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in Boulder, Colorado, for any actions for any such relief.
Any dispute relating in any way to your visit to the Site or to products you purchase through the Site shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and state courts in the State of Colorado.
