We endeavour to work only with Third Party Services that share our respect for your privacy, however we cannot take responsibility for the practices, content, or privacy policies of Third Party Services.  This includes when the Services of Cocktail Collective link to other websites or social media platforms, even if you access them through our Services, or when other websites reference or link to our Services.  These other domains and websites, including but not limited to Facebook, Instagram, You Tube and Google+ are not controlled by us and we strongly encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies of the Third Party Services you access so that you know how they will collect, use, and share your information.
