BIDI® Youth Access
Prevention Measures

BIDI VAPOR STANDS STRONGLY AGAINST YOUTH ACCESS TO THE BIDI® STICK!

Our BIDI® Stick is exclusively for adult vape users and smokers. It is in no way intended for the use of adolescents and individuals under the age of 21.

Bidi Vapor is opposed to all illegal underage tobacco use, including ENDS use, by minors (under 21). We have taken various measures to ensure its products are not marketed toward or sold to minors.

Responsible Product Marketing

Bidi Vapor Shows How It Should Be Done

Bidi Vapor has taken all the necessary steps to combat against rampant underage use of vapor products with its BIDI® Youth Access Prevention Measures. Aside from the tamper-resistant packaging and businesslike design, we have implemented security measures to curb underage vapers from accessing our BIDI® Sticks. From age-gated access to our website, to obligating retailers to share in the responsibility of restricting youth access, we stand by and advocate for the message that no underage clients shall be able to access vape products.

Bidi Vapor is committed to fully complying with all applicable laws and regulations. We have gone above and beyond regulatory requirements to implement strict marketing restrictions and youth access prevention measures. A few of the measures Bidi Vapor and Kaival Brands have implemented to protect minors include the following:

In the Fall 2020, Bidi Vapor prioritized compliance over business objectives by halting production of the BIDI® Stick for two months in order to revise its packaging and labeling to incorporate new product names to better align with the FDA’s Enforcement Priorities Guidance.
Bidi Vapor complies with FDA packaging and labeling requirements, including 21 C.F.R. § 1143.3 compliant nicotine addictiveness warnings placed in a prominent location on all labeling, packaging, and advertisements. The BIDI® Stick also features tamper-resistant packaging and several adult-use only (21+) and underage sale prohibited warnings.
In February 2021, Bidi Vapor discontinued its online direct-to-consumer (“DTC”) sales of the BIDI® Stick (all flavors) through its age-restricted website (www.bidivapor.com).

Bidi Vapor's youth access preventive measures include the following:

Bidi Vapor took the initiative of adopting single-word, non-characterizing terms to identify its BIDI® Stick products (eg., Classic and Arctic) to better align with the FDA’s Enforcement Priorities Guidance and further distinguish BIDI® Sticks from kid-friendly foods, drinks, and other non-ENDS products that are often marketed and/or appealing to youth.
The BIDI® Stick features tamper-resistant packaging and warnings that they are for adult use only (21+) and those underage sales are prohibited.
Bidi Vapor discontinued its online direct-to-consumer (DTC) sales of the BIDI® Stick (all flavors) through its age-restricted website (www.bidivapor.com) to help address the larger concerns regarding youth access to ENDS.
Online sales to adult consumers are now available only through GoPuff, which uses face-to-face ID verification and requires an adult signature on delivery.
Wholesalers and retailers are required to comply with the Bidi Vapor Direct Retailer and Wholesaler Agreement. Brick-and-mortar retailers must also sign a Retailer Pledge that commits them to comply with, among other things, age-verification requirements and adult-focused marketing. Retailers must also participate in the Company’s mystery shopper program, which is another technique to double-check that retailers comply with prohibitions against sales to minors.
We do not (1) use social media to market to consumers (but only maintain age-gated accounts on certain platforms such as LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube for informational purposes); (2) use social media influencers, brand ambassadors, models, or actors; (3) engage in any television or radio advertising; or (4) sponsor sporting or entertainment events.

COMPLIANCE WITH
THE PACT ACT

We lead by example.

Bidi Vapor’s partners are expected to share in the responsibility of youth access prevention . We have a signed agreement to bind them to this responsibility – the Retailer Pledge.

We discontinued our Direct-to Consumer services and stopped selling our products online in compliance to the PACT Act. Currently our products are being sold by GoPuff and our trusted partners and distributors who signed our Retailer and Wholesaler Agreement. 

Retailer Pledge

We encourage our direct retailer partners to comply with age-verification and underage sales restrictions through our agreement.

The Retailer Pledge serves as a contract to ensure that our authorized resellers observe high-quality monitoring, assessments, and commitment not to engage non-smokers and underage youth with any vape products. 

Mystery Shoppers

Mystery Shoppers are sent to retail stores to ensure that retailers are strictly complying with the stringent age-verification measures.

Parental Guidance and Education

At Bidi Vapor, we pride ourselves in our consistent and strong efforts to prevent possession and access of electronic cigarettes to minors. To aid our efforts, we strongly encourage close parental guidance and effective education to the underaged population. We believe this is vital to prevent the use of e-cigarettes of minors.

As a parent, it is imperative to determine the signs of whether your child may be using electronic cigarettes or not. Moreover, to effectively educate your children, it’s crucial you are educated as well in regards to the different varieties of electronic cigarettes and the e-liquids contained within it. Ensure you make time to talk to your child on the adverse effects and consequences that come with the usage of nicotine. This is an opportunity for you to impart awareness to your children, first hand, on the potential dangers of nicotine use.

For those kids who might still be tempted to shop nicotine products, we would encourage you to store your ATM cards, credit cards, and identification cards safely to lessen possible access for your kids.

Age Verification Efforts

Online

  • An age gate pop-up box appears on the site to prevent underage access.
  • Bidi Vapor does not post images that can attract young individuals and ensures campaigns are targeted an adult audience.
  • Bidi Vapor regularly goes through their online content to ensure it remains unappealing to the youth.

In Stores

  • Bidi Vapor created a Wholesaler & Direct Retailer Agreement that contains the terms on purchasing and reselling the BIDI® Stick for all Bidi Vapor direct retailer partners.
  • Based on the terms, direct retailers must uphold the age verification process in their stores and commit to checking the customer’s identification before any transaction.
  • Direct retailers can also put the transaction on hold when in doubt or until the customer’s age is verified.
  • Mystery Shoppers will be sent to direct retailer shops to check on their compliance. Failure to comply will lead to the cancellation of orders and distribution rights.
  • Customers are only allowed to purchase 30 BIDI® Sticks per month, and four (4) BIDI® Sticks per day per customer account.
