The customer object
customer object contains information about a customer who has a customer account.
Where and when is it defined
customer object is global in the sense that you can access it in all layout, template and snippet files. However, the object is only defined when a customer is logged-in. You can verify if a customer is logged-in with this code:
If one is able to view a store page that lives under
/accounts then one is logged-in, therefore you don't need to check if
customer is defined in the templates /customers/account.liquid, /customers/order.liquid and /customers/addresses.liquid before you access the variable's attributes.
