This information is used to compile aggregate statistics for the Site such as which products receive the most views, cart abandonment rate, country from which visitors are viewing the Site, and referral sources for visits to the Site. We may also use this information to improve the Site and our business practices and policies. This information is not linked to your Personal Information.
If you choose to use one of our contact email addresses to send us any information other than that listed above, we are not responsible for keeping that information private. Please see our Terms & Conditions of Use for further information about our policies regarding unsolicited information.

Please be aware that when Personal Information is voluntarily disclosed in the reviews, comments, Ask Dr. Chelsea, or other public areas of this Site, that information, along with any other information disclosed in your communication, can be collected and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from third parties. Such activities are beyond our control and this Policy does not apply to such information. If you do not want your comments to be viewed by third parties, you are advised not to make any submissions.

You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org; however, because we keep track of past transactions, you cannot delete information associated with past transactions on this Site.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your user information and password. You are responsible for all uses of your registration, whether or not authorized by you. If unauthorized use of your registration or password has occurred, please email us immediately at email@example.com.
How We Secure Your Information
This Site uses the Shopify platform, which has industry-standard measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Please refer to the Shopify website for additional information. When placing an order at Couples Playthings, we use encryption software for all data provided to us. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, you acknowledge that: 1) there are privacy and security risks to the Internet which are beyond our control; 2) the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information exchanged between you and us through the Site cannot be guaranteed; and 3) any information or data may be viewed or tampered with by a third party while in transit.
Our security measures standing alone are not sufficient to ensure the security of your Personal Information. It is also important for you to guard against unauthorized access to your passwords and unauthorized use of your computer.
Please be aware that if you click on any hyperlinks to other third party websites, you are subject to the privacy practices and policies of that particular website. We do not endorse the privacy policies or practices of any third party website. Once you have chosen to access a third party's website, we are not responsible for the information practices or privacy policies or liable for the actions of that party.
Cookies and Web Beacons
We may also use some cookies or web beacons owned and operated by third parties, such as analytics providers or apps that help our site to function. We are not responsible for the privacy policies of those third parties and do not control how their cookies or web beacons operate.

Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us. The Site is intended for adults only. For that reason, our Site does not intentionally solicit, collect and/or maintain personally identifiable information from users under age 18, including, as required by the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, children under age 13. If you are under the age of 18 (or under the age of majority in your jurisdiction, whichever is older), we ask that you do not use the Site or submit any Personal Information to us. If you are a parent or guardian and you believe your child has submitted Personal Information to us, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will delete your child’s Personal Information from our records.
