Please see Section 4 for more information on Shopify’s policies.
The Site does, however, allow you to register with us for an account through the Create Account page on the Site. When you register for an account via the Site, you will be providing us with your first name, last name and email address. Such registration information is used to make the purchase of products quicker and easier.
