Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)
18+ goods and services
Gib.shopping has put measures in place to safeguard children/ minors/ persons not of age, but may not cover countries or jurisdictions outside of Gibraltar.
Gib.shopping has sections created for businesses selling age-restricted products for persons of 18+ years. These sections are designed to protect children and young adults. Visitors to Gib.shopping will not be able to view these items unless they create an account and certify they are over 18 years of age (18+). To purchase items from these sections, visitors must create an account where they must include their full name, address, contact details and date of birth (DoB).
To ensure the sale of these 18+ items are not sold unintentionally to persons not of legal age, Vendors must follow the Gib.shopping instructions to tag these items as '18+' so they are hidden from view. Vendors are strongly recommended to add an 18+ sticker to their packaging in addition to highlighting the product on the Invoice as '18+', to inform and remind delivery drivers to check the ID and DoB of the person they are handing the goods over to. The onus of liability lies on the Delivery Service to confirm the identity of the recipient and that the person is over 18 years of age before handing over the goods. Should the product/ service not be described as '18+', liability lies with the Vendor as they have not highlighted the item as an '18+' item, most importantly on the Invoice and secondly on the packaging.
Should a minor make a purchase of an 18+ product through a fake account or by gaining access to an unwilling adult's account, delivery charges will be charged and/or deducted from the refund amount (should the item be refundable). The delivery charges include, delivery to the customers drop-off point and the return delivery to the Vendor (the second trip deducted from any refund amount). Gib.shopping can not be made labile for facilitating the procurement of age-restricted products or services, as each account holder is responsible for the security of their account and the security of their online payment methods. The Vendor or Delivery Provider cannot transfer liability to Gib.shopping as they have been made abundantly aware of the safety measures preventing any illegal sales.
