Product Return Policies:

Returns: 60-day unconditional money-back guarantee

We guarantee your satisfaction with all Libida merchandise. You may return any item within 60 days of delivery for a credit, refund or exchange of the purchase price (less shipping and handling). Due to the ease of duplication, videotapes are returnable only if the seal is unbroken.

Damaged or defective items -- one year unconditional money-back guarantee

Within the first year of your receipt of a product, if your product is damaged or defective, we will promptly send you a replacement after you have returned the damaged or defective product. You will not be charged any additional shipping. Defective videos and audiotapes will only be replaced with the same product.

Inventory availability and backorders

Inventory information

We keep all merchandise in inventory, in our warehouses. We cannot guarantee that a product listed as "In Stock" will actually ship right away, as inventory can change significantly from day to day. In rare cases, a product may be in stock when you place your order, and sold out by the time your order is processed.

If any selected merchandise is temporarily out of stock, your credit card will not be charged until the merchandise is shipped to you. Please note: Any items not in stock when you place your order will be shipped immediately when received from the manufacturer at no additional cost.

Back-orders (Out-Of-Stock Items)

Back-ordered merchandise includes items that are not currently in stock. In most cases, these items are on order from the manufacturers. When we receive the product, we notify you by email and ship it to you promptly.

Back-ordered products usually come into stock within one to four weeks but can occasionally take longer. If your order is not ready to ship within 30 days, we will send you an update by email.

If for any reason we determine that a back-ordered item will no longer be available at all, we will notify you immediately by email, cancel the item from your order and delete the item from our catalog.

Note: we never charge your credit card until the item ships; therefore, no adjustment will need to be made to your credit card upon order cancellation. If payment was made by check or money order, your credit will be placed in your Libida account and will be automatically applied to your next order. If you prefer a check refund, please contact us at 415.584.2303, 415.824.1445 or by mail at Libida, 1892 Thunderbird, Troy MI 48084 to request one.

Customs and Import Duties Information

You may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once the package reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; Libida has no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. Additionally, you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the products.

It is your responsibility to know the laws of your country and community as they apply to adult products. We will not be held responsible nor will we issue credit for items seized by the customs service or any country.

Customer Care

Libida will make every effort to respond to your customer care, feedback and order information as quickly as possible. However, due to the fact that we are in our earliest stages of development, there may be delays in our response time to your request.

Please submit any requests by using the email forms located on our
Contact Us page, and throughout the site. If you prefer, you can contact us at 415.584.2303, 415.824.1445 or send us mail at Libida, 1892 Thunderbird., Troy MI 48084.

We appreciate your patience and will continue to keep you informed of our developments.

Community/Message Board Policy:

Through live chat, message boards and email, Libida provides you the opportunity to express your voice and also hear what your peers and experts around the world have to say.

Rules of conduct:

To meet our goal of providing women with a safe and secure environment within which to express themselves and their sexuality, we have developed a standard of conduct that is strictly enforced. Our standards may be a bit more stringent than other Web-based communities, but we are confident you will come to appreciate the safe atmosphere and candid discussions we strive to maintain.

Chatters who violate our standards while in our chat rooms will be removed from the chat server. Comments posted on our message boards which violate our standards are routinely removed without further comment. Libida reserves the right to refuse service to anyone and to cancel an account at any time.

Personal attacks on other Community participants are not allowed. Personal attacks are defined as comments that reflect upon a given person instead of her or his opinion.

Slanderous, defamatory, violent, abusive, insulting, threatening or harassing comments are not tolerated.

Please keep your comments focused on the discussion topic.

Impersonation of other participants or public figures is not allowed.

A real name and email address must be provided to Libida before you can obtain access to our chats or message boards. You are allowed to create a pseudonym for use on the chats or message boards.

No advertising of any kind, including nonprofit organizations, will be tolerated on the message boards and chats.

No copyrighted material is allowed. Please use links instead of quotes from sources outside Libida.

As with every part of our site, you must be 21 or older to view and/or participate in Libida's chat rooms or message boards.

You agree not to use the system for illegal activity or to violate the privacy or security of other members.

You agree to comply with the restriction on the content of chats and messages, as stated below.

Content of Messages

Libida does not and cannot review every message posted in our Message Boards and is not responsible for the content posted in these messages. However, we reserve the right to delete, move or edit messages that we deem abusive, defamatory, obscene, in violation of copyright or trademark laws, or otherwise unacceptable.

Please note that the opinions, advice, statements, solicitations, advertisements and other information and content posted on Libida message boards are those of their respective authors and not of Libida, and should not necessarily be relied upon. Such authors are entirely responsible for their posted content.

You are legally and ethically responsible for any works -- writings, files, pictures, or any other work -- that you post or transmit using any of Libida's services: email, conferencing, the World Wide Web, or any other service that allows interaction or dissemination of information. In posting works on Libida, you are responsible for honoring the rights of others, including intellectual property rights (copyright, patent, and trademark), the right to privacy, and the right not to be libeled or slandered. For example, if you wish to post a copyrighted work on Libida, you are responsible for obtaining the copyright holder's permission first.

Illegal activity under the laws of California and the United States using your Libida account is a violation of this agreement. Since the law as to jurisdiction of online systems is unsettled, we urge you to consider the possible effect of laws outside Libida's locality or your own residence. Libida is open to members worldwide (and works published on the World Wide Web or other such services are accessible to anyone on the Internet), and Libida cannot guarantee that you won't run into legal trouble from other jurisdictions over your works.

Privacy Rights of Chat Members

Any use by you of any other subscriber's information, personal or otherwise, for any commercial purpose or to obtain direct financial gain (for example, mass marketing) is prohibited. Any such use shall be deemed to be a violation of these Conditions of Service. Libida is to be used by you for your personal use only. Commercial uses of Libida are strictly prohibited unless prior written consent from Libida has been granted. You agree that you will not use Libida for chain letters, junk mail, "spamming," solicitations (commercial or non-commercial) or bulk communications of any kind, including but not limited to distribution lists, to any person who has not given specific permission to be included in such a list.

Conflicts among Community Members

If you have a complaint about the behavior or posts of another member, it is your responsibility to attempt to resolve the conflict, typically by contacting that person directly. If that doesn't help, and your complaint is about interactions or material in a specific conference, you should also feel free to contact that conference's host for help. Normally, Libida staff will not take a role in mediating conflicts between you and other members. Libida does not take responsibility for your behavior or that of other members of the system. However, a Libida member has the right to expect not be bothered by others against her or his will.

Although we cannot guarantee that violations of our rules of conduct will not happen, if you become aware of a user violating these rules of contact, please
Contact Us immediately.

Your Personal Account

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Information and password. You shall be responsible for all uses of your registration, whether or not authorized by you. You agree to immediately notify Libida of any unauthorized use of your registration or password.

Information Collection and Use

Libida is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Libida collects information from our users at several different points on our Web site.


If a user chooses to register with our site, a user is required to give the following:
valid email address, a unique password, a phrase and a response in case of forgotten password, and a unique user name.

This information is used to contact the user about the services on our site for which they have expressed interest.

The user may provide optional demographic information, in order to help personalize our site to you, at the point of registration. The information requested is as followed: name, age group, sex, profession, education, marital status, employment status, income level, city, state and zip code. Providing such information is strongly encouraged so that Libida can provide a more personalized experience on our site.


We request information from the user on our order form. Here a user must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number and expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer's orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user.


A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. Use of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, she or he may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site. For example, the user will not be able to participate in any of our membership benefits, contests or promotions that take place. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.

Log Files

We use Log Files to identify IP addresses, browser type, domain name, date and time users have accessed Lidida.com. The data is used to analyze trends, administer the site, track users' movements, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.


We share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.

We use an outside credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

We may from time to time partner with other parties to provide specific services that are of value to our users. Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether or not they should proceed with services that require an outside party. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.

We do not disclose any personally identifiable information about our users in our chat rooms or in our bulletin boards. We inform our users through our Privacy Policy page to be aware that if they voluntarily choose to disclose any personally identifiable information about themselves, that might increase their chance of receiving unsolicited emails from others.

When any user is in a private chat room with one our experts getting advice, no other user can view their chat. When a user sends a question to one of our experts via email, we post that user's question and our expert's answer only after making sure that there is no personally identifiable information about the user.

Legal Disclaimer

We may disclose personal information when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary in order to conform to the edicts of the law or comply with a legal process served on our Web site.


This Web site may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that Libida is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

Contact Us

We use email links located on the "contact us" page to allow you to contact us directly with any questions or comments you may have. We read every message sent in. We directly respond to messages related to customer orders. For all messages that do not relate to customer orders, we may file your comments to improve the site and program, or review and discard the information. Your personal information is only shared with third parties with your explicit permission.


If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and email address.

Surveys and Contests

From time to time, our site requests information from users by surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address) and demographic information (such as ZIP code and age). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. By law, we are required to post the names of contest winners; please be aware of this prior to entering into any of our contests. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use of this site and the users' satisfaction.


This Web site takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information through the Web site, their information is protected both online and offline.

Our staff will not disclose any customer information, names or purchasing information to anyone outside of Libida, unless required to do so by law.

When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry -- SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, which is its designation when you are just "surfing."

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user information offline.

All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Our employees must use password-protected screen-savers when they leave their desks.

When they return, they must re-enter their password to regain access to your information. Furthermore, all of our employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.

Every quarter, Libida conducts in-house trainings on our customer care policies so that our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure that our customers' information is protected. Finally, the servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment behind a locked cage.

If you have any questions about the security at our Web site, you can send an email to comments@shopinprivate.com.

Special Offers

We send all new members a welcoming email to verify password and username. Established members will occasionally receive information on products, services, special deals, and a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive these types of communications. Please see our choice and opt out below.

Site and Service Updates

We also send the user site and service announcement updates. Members are not able to unsubscribe from service announcements, which contain important information about the service. We communicate with the user to provide requested services and with regard to issues relating to her or his account by email or phone.

Correction/Updating Personal Information

If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as your ZIP code), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user's personal data provided to us. This can usually be done at the member information page or by emailing our Customer Support.


Libida provides its users with the option of opting out of all mailings. Therefore, when there is a choice of using information for purposes other than what the information was originally collected for, Libida will present the user with an opt out box.

Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional materials from our partners may opt out of receiving these communications by replying to unsubscribe in the subject line in the email or email us at comments@shopinprivate.com.

Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether or not they should proceed with services that require an outside party.

Notification of Changes

If we change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our Privacy Policy page that can be accessed throughout the site, so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.

Discreet Product Shipping and Customer Billing

To further ensure your privacy, all of Libida's products are delivered in plain boxes, which list PriveCo, Inc. as the return address (and not Libida).

Moreover, on your credit card balance statements, all charges to your account by Libida are also listed as PriveCo, Inc.
