Do you sell age restricted goods? Do you need to be able to confirm a person is over or under a certain age?

The sale of age-restricted goods online has exploded: more of us than ever are using the internet to download computer games, watch movies and see targeted advertisements, and purchase age restricted goods such as Alcohol, Tobacco & medicines.  At the same time there is ever more scrutiny from regulators, governments, the press and consumers to ensure those underage are not able to access restricted goods, whilst allowing legitimate customers to proceed quickly.
