YOU MUST BE THE JUDGE OF THE SAFETY AND APPROPRIATE USE OF ALL PRODUCTS AND SERVICES. 

ALTHOUGH WE HOPE EVERY PRODUCT IS PERFECT WHEN WE RECEIVE IT FROM THE MANUFACTURER OR SUPPLIER, THE REALITY IS THAT WE CANNOT AND DO NOT INSPECT EACH PRODUCT WE RECEIVE FROM OUR SUPPLIERS AND MANUFACTURERS. YOU MUST BE SURE TO INSPECT IN GOOD LIGHT EACH PRODUCT YOU RECEIVE FOR ANY MANUFACTURING DEFECTS OR FLAWS AND/OR ANY DESIGN DEFECTS.

F. Risks Associated With Use of Products and Services

This Website provides adult-oriented products, ideas for adult activities with and uses of the Products and related online Services. The Store is a distributor and idea generator. The Store is not a product testing organization and the Store does not manufacture the Products. The Store obtains the Products from suppliers and manufacturers that the Store believes are reputable and reliable, however, the Store is not in a position to test ever Product and/or to assess the safety of every suggestion that the Store makes for User consideration 

The Store is not a medical organization and cannot – and does not - provide You with medical advice or clearance to use certain Products or engage in any activities. Nothing contained in this Website should be construed as medical or other professional advice. Any suggestions by the Store as to use of Products or activities should not be interpreted as a substitute for physician consultation, and product safety assessment. You must use good sense and personal judgment about your use of the Products and the activities in which You engage. 

Like many things in life, having fun often entails taking risks. Whether one is jumping out of planes, rock climbing, playing football or swimming alone without a life guard, risk is an unavoidable element of the activity. For some, the very fact that an activity is risky is an important ingredient for why the activity is fun. It can be very dangerous or very safe to ski down a black diamond slope at the ski resort, depending on the skier's ability, equipment, avalanche conditions and weather. Using the Store’s Products and getting inspired by any suggestions by the Store or other Users as to how the Products can be used is a bit like skiing – it can be very safe or very dangerous in our opinion depending on the user's experience, personality and the conditions surrounding the use of the Products. 

There is a risk of injury from use of the Products, replication of any depictions on the Website of use of the Products, or attempts to copy or follow any suggestions on the Website (from the Store or other Users). There are scenarios where the risk could include catastrophic injury or death. As set forth below, the Stores tries to identify some specific risks associated with certain types of Products or activities, however, it's up to the User to evaluate and address any risks associated with use of the Products or any suggested uses of the Products as the Store is not a product testing or safety organization. 

The text, pictures, and descriptions set forth in this Website are for illustrative purposes only and do NOT advise that You or any other particular Website User undertake or perform any particular technique or activity. You agree that You will not undertake or perform any exercise or technique described in this Website until and unless You consult with and are cleared by a medical doctor in relation to such participation and You consult with an experienced User of the same Product or a similar Product. How do You get experience with a Product if You've never used it and You don't know anyone who has used it? Well, it's just like looking up the spelling of a word in the dictionary when You don't know how to spell it – ask on forums You find on the internet, take advice with a grain of salt and use common sense. 

Some of our products will be sold in the original packaging received from the manufacture or supplier, and some of our products will be sold in our packaging. Not all manufacturers or suppliers provide thoughtful warnings, instructions and disclaimers. However, some manufacturers and suppliers do provide thoughtful warnings, instructions and disclaimers. Our prices would need to be increased materially beyond what we believe to be market pricing if we were to attempt to assess and potentially re-write warnings, instructions and disclaimers for each product in our inventory. Therefore, we need to leave the job to You to independently assess any manufacturer/supplier supplied warnings, instructions and disclaimers as we make no representations or warranties as to the suitability of such warnings, instructions and disclaimers. If there's a contradiction or conflict between our warnings, instructions and disclaimers and the manufacturers'/suppliers' warnings instructions and disclaimers, then You need to assess the contradiction and conflict and contact us at info@tomoffinlandstore.com with any questions that You have and we'll try to reconcile the contradiction or conflict. 

As an illustration, it is common place in the adult industry for products to be marked by the manufacturer/supplier as "novelty only." Some products are intended merely as novelty products, yet other products are clearly not intended as novelties. We're not in a position to have each supplier and/or manufacturer/supplier remove "novelty only" marking where we think the marking inappropriate or inaccurate. Therefore, You must assess whether or not the product is really a novelty only product or is actually intended for a particular use. You agree that You will read and assess all warnings, instructions and disclaimers and that You will apply your independent judgment as to the safety of the Products You purchase, and that You will consult us if You have any uncertainty or You do not understand any warnings, instructions or disclaimers. 

YOU HEREBY AGREE TO HOLD HARMLESS THE STORE AND ITS AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, VENDORS, DISTRIBUTORS, LICENSORS, LICENSEES AND CONTRACTORS FROM ANY LIABILITY ARISING FROM INACCURATE, INCOMPLETE OR MISSING WARNINGS, INSTRUCTIONS AND DISCLAIMERS PROVIDED BY OUR SUPPLIERS OR MANUFACTURERS.

K. Venue; Personal Jurisdiction; Service of Process

L. Headings For Convenience Only

M. Waiver

The waiver by one party of a breach of any provision of this Agreement by the other party shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach of the same or any other provision by the other party.

F. Cookies; Pixel Tracking

i. When You browse the Website, a temporary cookie is placed on Your computer that helps the Store collect information to help us better understand our visitors' interests and to better serve You. What are Cookies? "Cookies" are small pieces of information that are stored by Your web browser's software on Your computer's hard drive or temporarily in Your computer's memory. The use of cookies is an industry standard and it enhances the user experience and Your access to information on our Website. Cookies enable the Store to recognize You and personalize Your viewing experience on the Website. The Store uses cookies for a variety of purposes including, but not limited to, recognizing user access (or logon) privileges to the Website (such as to store user names and other information supplied at registration), track Website usage and traffic patterns, provide information and advertisements for goods or services that we think may interest You based on Your interest in and use of the Website, estimate the number of users who visit and use the Website, and track such usage patterns. Although most web browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, You may be able to decline the placement of a cookie on Your hard drive by using the appropriate feature(s) of Your web browser software (if available) to delete the cookie. Please note, however, that certain areas or features of the Website will not function properly if Your web browser does not accept cookies.

ii. In addition to using Cookies, the Website may employ "pixel tracking", a common process which may be used in connection with advertisements on other sites. Pixel tracking involves the use of pixel tags that are not visible to the user and consist of a few lines of computer code. Pixel tracking measures the effectiveness of advertisements and compiles aggregate and specific usage statistics. A "pixel tag" is placed on certain pages of websites that is used to track an individual user's activity. We may access these pixel tags to identify activity and interests that may allow us to better match our goods, services, and other offers with Your interests and needs. For example, if You visit our Website from an advertisement on another website, the pixel tag will allow the advertiser to track that its advertisement brought You to the Website. If You visit our Website, and we link You to another website, we may also be able to determine that You were sent to and/or transacted with a third party website. This data is collected for use in our marketing and research.
