Privacy Policy
Welcome to The Cobbles (the “Platform”). The Platform is provided and controlled by The Cobbles LLC. (“Cobbles”, “we” or “us”). We are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy covers the experience we provide for users age 13 and over on our Platform.

When you use Cobbles products, you share information with us — it’s our responsibility to help you understand how that information is used.

We aim to put your individual privacy first in everything we do. Where possible, we disclose how we use the information you share with us - and we provide tools that can delete your data permanently within the platform at any time (Just go to settings in the app!).

Its important to keep in mind that other Cobbles users can always take a screenshot, or save things using a third-party app. At the end of the day, it’s best to only share the need-to-know stuff with the people you really trust — just like you would in real life!
