The Pipe Guys Online Store
The Pipe Guys online store (“thepipeguys.com”) does not sell tobacco or tobacco related products to anyone under the legal smoking age of the state in which they reside (18 years of age in most states). No person under their state’s legal smoking age may purchase any tobacco or tobacco related products from this Site.

The use of any tobacco or tobacco related products purchased from this Site are at the user’s own risk. Products on this site contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.
The Pipe Guys can ship non-tobacco products to any country in the world (except where prohibited by law), but there are some restrictions on the shipment of tobacco products. Below is the list of countries that The Pipe Guys are prohibited from shipping tobacco products to:
Belarus • Belize • Bolivia • Brazil • Ecuador • Gabon • Greece • Iceland • Italy • Kazakhstan • Lebanon • Maldives • Malta • Mauritania • New Caledonia • Norway • Portugal • Russia • Sri Lanka • Ukraine • Vietnam • Wallis & Futuna Islands
Purchasing Tobacco from a Prohibited Country
If a customer places an order containing tobacco products from a country that The Pipe Guys is prohibited from shipping tobacco products to, a The Pipe Guys staff member will contact the customer within 1 business day and present them with two options:
1. The Pipe Guys will remove all of the tobacco products from the order, refund the customer for the cost of the tobacco products, and then ship the order with its remaining contents (the shipping cost will remain the same).
2. If the entire order was tobacco products, or the customer would rather cancel their order, The Pipe Guys will refund the customer the entire order cost including shipping charges.
If the customer refuses both options, or fails to respond within 3 days, the order will be cancelled and a refund for the entire order cost including shipping charges will be issued.
The Pipe Guys uses age verification software to ensure that every customer making purchase from thepipeguys.com is above their state’s legal smoking age. If any customer under their state’s legal smoking age purchases tobacco or tobacco related products from thepipeguys.com they will be notified that their order will not be shipped, and their entire order cost including shipping charges will be refunded.

The refund will be issued through the same medium that the original payment for the product was made through (i.e. credit card, PayPal).
All orders placed on thepipeguys.com are assigned a tracking number via the courier used to deliver the specific package. This tracking number is accessible from your thepipeguys.com account homepage, if the order was completed using the customer’s thepipeguys.com account, and the electronic order receipt sent to the email address input at checkout. The tracking number allows both the customer and The Pipe Guys to track the delivery status of any purchase made on thepipeguys.com.

All orders with Signature Confirmation requested will incur an additional $2.20 charge. An invoice for $2.20 will be sent to the email address entered at checkout after the order has been placed. After the customer pays this invoice, the order will be considered paid in full and will be shipped with Signature Confirmation. Any lost or stolen orders that shipped with Signature Confirmation will be refunded or replaced by The Pipe Guys.
