We use several services to enhance your experience on our website. We care about your privacy and want to be transparent with regards to any data transferred within or by our website. Here is an explanation of how our user’s data is used.

  • Google analytics – I use Google Analytics to check how my website is doing with my audience. It allows me to see how many visitors I get, which pages are doing well and where in the world my visitors are from. You can read the privacy policy of Google Analytics here.
  • Affiliate programs: Throughout my website you may see small ads, logos and links to external product websites. When you click on one of these links, the external websites sometimes know that we sent you. Whatever you choose to do on external websites is between you and them. I can’t link my data with that of the external website to discover anything about you. You need to check the privacy policies etc of the external websites. I trust them all but you should still check yourself.
  • WordPress statistics – there are some statisics that WordPress and some of my plugins record. I can’t use this data to identify you. It simply helps things run here.
  • Newsletter – If you sign up to my newsletter, I promise to only use your details to send you newsletters and monthly digests of my latest posts. Your information will never be shared with any third parties and you can unsubscribe at any time. You also have the option to opt out of certain emails. For example if you want seasonal offers on sex toys / giveaways but don’t want a monthly digest, you can change that in your profile. If you contact me, I can delete your details from my database. So fear not… I won’t spam you or share your details! My newsletter really is just to give me a way to contact those of my readers who really enjoy my website and the info I provide. I get some data about whether my readers open newsletters or delete them without reading. That’s just to help me keep my list clean and make sure I’m not sending emails to people who don’t want them 🙂
  • Quizzes and surveys – If you participate in any quizzes or surveys on my website then I may share the collective data of that quiz or survey publicly. However your personal / identifiable details will not be shared.
  • Contact form – If you send me an email via the contact form, I will see your email address in my email inbox. Your details won’t be shared with any third parties.
  • Cookies – cookies stored on your computer last for a maximum of 30 days. You can of course delete your cookies whenever you choose by going to your browser settings. The cookies from my website do functional things like remember if you clicked the cookie policy banner, which language you choose to read etc.
  • Third party cookies – If you click on any external links, you may receive cookies from the sites you visit. You should check their privacy policy etc for information on those external cookies. They don’t come from my website and I have no control over them.
  • Geo localisation – My website is bilingual (english / french) and my audience is wide. Sometimes I use a plugin to check your IP address and give you content relevant to your country. When you click external links, I also sometimes use a browser redirect to send you to the appropriate version of a shop for your country (for example, Lovehoney has many websites for different countries). This website can only check which country you are from, not which city etc. This is standard practice online and it is purely to improve your user experience.

Comments etc

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily make your personal information public online – for example on public message boards, web logs, through email, or in public chat areas – that information can potentially be seen, collected and used by anyone browsing the web. We cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of such information that you share publicly. So when you use our comments section for example, share your information wisely!
