6. Be Worthy of Trust
At Come As You Are, we fully appreciate the trust people put in us and we make sure we earn it in everything we do.
Our culture is built on trust. When it comes to sexuality, privacy isn't just about avoiding slight embarrassment. Some of us have a lot more than our comfort to lose if our sexual desires are revealed before we're ready to reveal them. That's why we’re happy to help you with as much or as little information as you are comfortable sharing. We treat everyone’s privacy as a very serious thing to be protected.
Here are a few of the things we do every day to earn and keep your trust:
We keep secrets. The only confidentiality agreements workers and owners sign is one about customers’ privacy. We're not worried about "corporate secrets" but we know that you can't shop with comfort unless you know we never talk about you. Not in the store, not online, not in the blogosphere. We maintain high standards of confidentiality with no exceptions.
We're discreet. Our shipping packages are plain, our bags don't have our store name on them, and we'll never show up on credit card bills or call display as Come As You Are (always CAYA Co-operative, our co-op name). If you choose to register on our website or join our mailing list we promise to never sell, trade, or rent out any information about you.
We can handle it. With over thirty years of collective experience in sex toys, there isn't much we haven't heard, and when you talk to us we promise you won't get a surprised or judgmental response -- you'll get answers, empathy and encouragement.
