PostSubject: Warning about junk mail.    Wed Jul 20, 2011 1:03 am

So, your wondering, how you got Victoria's Secret has home address, to send you a mini coupon book.


So, Monday, I got a Victoria's Secret mini coupon in the mail. My mom was like, do you want it? I said no. She's was like, your name's on it. I said to her: I don't know, how they got my name. (That's the truth.) So, I was searching online, how my name got on their mailing list. Well, I read Victoria's Secret Privacy & Policy. They collect information, when you visited their website. Like your browser, IPaddress, & etc... I never sign up on their emailing list. I never bought anything in the store or online. I visit their website, to look @ their clothing, prices, & sizes. What gets me so mad about this. Anytime, you go on to VS site. They collect information from using browsers, ipaddress & etc... I don't think, that's right. They shouldn't do that. (unless, you sign up on their mailing list.) Their like, well, if you want remove from our mailing list. click here. So, I did. Tells me, I need to fill out all information about myself. I was like, no, don't want send my information about myself to them. (If, the third party gets my info about me.) So, I'm going to avoid going to VS site, from now on. (If, I do go on their site. Just clear my browser history.)

To read the full VS privacy & policy. Just search Victoria's Secret Privacy & Policy. Tells you more about their privacy & policy. What, I told on here.




I'm not sure other stores does this or not.

Tip; if you're using Firefox use Private Browsing or if you're using Google Chrome, use Incognito Browsing. That stops sites being able to leave cookies or other info on your computer.

If you're using Firefox, click "Tools", scroll down, and click "Start Private Browsing".

For Google Chrome, one way is to:

Quote :


  1. Click the wrench icon on the browser toolbar.
  2. Select New incognito window.

A new window will open with the icon in the corner. You can continue browsing as normal in the other window.
You can also use the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+Shift+N (Windows, Linux, and Chrome OS) and ⌘-Shift-N (Mac) to open an incognito window.

I don't use Google Chrome, so there may be other ways.
