Information And Identity Protection
BetterSex.com uses secure server technology called a secure sockets layer - a protocol used to transmit private information via the internet. We use strong security measures to prevent loss, misuse and alteration of information. We automatically collect, but do not use any information in an individual way unless our security is at risk, the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to our servers.
We also automatically collect certain aggregate information such as pages viewed, areas visited and products purchased. Understanding aggregate information helps create a better shopping experience. Credit card and personal information is always encrypted during electronic transmission to our bank and for its short stay on our servers. This system of checks and balances provide maximum credit card and identity protection.
Why we request birthdays. BetterSex.com sells products for adults. We require birthdays and use sophisticated age verification software to insure we only sell to adults. If you’ve just moved, our age verification software may not be able to find you. Credit cards provided for age verification are not charged but used temporarily along with a customer’s birthday as a proxy for age verification.
My Account You may need to change your personal information from time to time. My Account is where you can change your information. Find the My Account link at the top of every page. You can retrieve your account password at anytime by visiting the forgot password page.
Is information shared with others?
Email Addresses Email addresses are never shared, sold, rented or traded with any company for the purpose of online solicitation.
We never send unsolicited emails. If you would like to subscribe, look for the email subscription box on almost every page. We use a double opt in process, so subscription isn’t final until you’ve clicked on the confirming email.
Unsubscribe from BetterSex.com’s email list by clicking on the “unsubscribe” button on the bottom of any email, going to My Account and changing your subscription, calling customer service at 1-800-955-0888 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. After you unsubscribe, you may receive one or two more emails because email addresses are removed within ten business days.
Postal Mailing Addresses Like many other catalogs, we occasionally “rent” our postal mailing list to companies that provide goods and services that many of our customers find useful. Those partners rent the ability to send our customers a single solicitation. If you do not purchase from them, you are not on their list and should not be mailed again. If you prefer your name and address not be shared, go to My Account and uncheck the box in the example below:
Receive information from other quality BetterSex partners? Partner Offers (uncheck this box and your information will not be shared with partners)
Phone Numbers We use phone numbers to communicate with our customers about their order and we only do that in an emergency.
Third Parties We may share personal and anonymous information with companies or individuals engaged to help us perform services such as email or web analytics. These companies will only be permitted to use information in the performance of their assigned jobs for BetterSex.com. In rare and special cases, a court may require disclosure of certain personal information.
Receiving Emails Receiving emails can be a challenge. Some Internet Service Providers filter and may block communication. The best way to insure receipt of our emails is to add our “from” address to your address book:
AOL Customers If you use AOL, you may receive our mail as junk mail or “spam”. This is not unique to us; many companies experience this problem with AOL. Add us to your address book to make it easier to see and read our emails and insure receipt.
AOL Report As Spam Button Please don’t report our emails as “spam” to AOL. We never send unsolicited emails, so our emails can’t be spam. Many customers think using the “report as spam” button is a harmless way to unsubscribe. In fact, you harm other AOL customers. Reporting a message as spam makes it harder for other AOL customers to receive emails from that company. If you would like to unsubscribe from our list, please click on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of every email, click on the My Account link and change your preferences or simply call customer service 1-800-955-0888.
