Age-restricted Purchases

Age-restricted purchases refer to goods or services that are legally restricted to individuals above a certain age in order to protect their wellbeing, safety, or moral values. These restrictions are typically imposed on products such as alcohol, tobacco, firearms, gambling, adult content, fireworks, or certain over-the-counter medications, as well as services like driving, voting, getting married, or entering certain premises.

Age restrictions are enforced to prevent underage individuals from accessing or engaging in activities that are considered potentially harmful or inappropriate for their age group. These measures are implemented by governments and authorities to safeguard public health, maintain social norms, prevent addiction or misuse, and ensure responsible behavior in relation to sensitive or potentially dangerous goods and activities. Age verification systems, such as age checks, identification requirements, or permits, are commonly employed to enforce these limitations and prohibit underage individuals from participating in age-restricted purchases.
