You don’t have to give us any of this personal information but if you don’t, you may not be able to buy from the site, and you are unlikely to receive our optimal overall customer experience. But that is your choice – and we respect that.
We also anonymize and aggregate personal information (so that it does not identify you) and use it for purposes including testing our IT systems, research, data analysis, improving our site, and developing new products and services. We also share this information with third parties.
Sharing your information
What we DON’T DO:
We do not, and will not, sell any of your personal data to any third party – including your name, address, email address or credit card information.
What we DO:
However, we share your data with the following categories of companies as an essential part of being able to provide our services to you, as set out in this statement:
- Companies that do things to get your purchases to you, such as payment service providers, warehouses, order packers, and delivery companies
- Professional service providers, such as marketing agencies, advertising partners and website hosts, who help us run our business
- Credit reference agencies, law enforcement and fraud prevention agencies, so we can help tackle fraud
We may provide third parties with aggregated but anonymized information and analytics about our customers and, before we do so, we will make sure that it does not identify you.
If you signed-up to our mailing list, we will send you marketing messages by email.
How to stop marketing messages
You can stop receiving marketing messages from us at any time.
You can do this:

Once you do this, we will update your profile to ensure that you don’t receive further marketing messages.

Please note as well that stopping marketing messages will not stop service communications (such as order updates or customer care follow-up if you have contacted us).
Seeing adverts for VirginityNow.com online
We also engage in online advertising, also to keep you aware of what we’re up to and to help you see and find our products.
