for the about us page
The Sampson Store is an Internet website that promote safe sex by selling condoms on the Internet since 2002. Our mission is to promote the sense of safe sex; to provide an accessible & useful information source about condoms and to offer a secure, convenient, and efficient channel of selling condoms. As you know, reading information on the box of condom in a retail store could be embarrassing. Yet, some people, especially teenagers, might hesitate to buy condom in retail stores. Thus our website is an excellent channel for customers to make purchase.
From-time-to-time, we cooperate with movie distributors so that movies can be promoted through our website and our advertising network; on the other hand, our customers could be rewarded by having free movie tickets when they purchase our products. Someone might be skeptical and ask: "How can it be so generous that I got a movie ticket with value over HK$60 when I purchase as little as HK$100 from your store? There must be some tricks!" Thanks to your concern over safe sex and thus you are rewarded. The Sampson Store has started the movie promotion campaign since 2005 and since then there is *zero* complaint received regarding the free movie tickets! So you can rest assured to enjoy movie and popcorn after shopping around in our website!
In year 2008, the Sampson store has been classified as a Class I article (neither obscene nor indecent article) by the Obscene Articles Tribunal of Hong Kong. Therefore the materials and content in our website are suitable for audience of all ages. This is a complement to our goal in providing a healthy information source for safe sex to all people.
We understand our customers. We know that you want to be discreet when purchasing from us. Therefore, you will see "THE SAMPSON STORE" in your credit card billing; there will be no "CONDOM" keyword in the parcel of your order and most importantly, your personal data will never be abused! All your personal information including your address, phone and email will only be used to fulfill the order. We will never sell your personal data. In fact, up to August 2011, there has been more than 2 million pieces of condom sold through our website. We are able to made good profit in running this website and the profit comes from your purchase, the income of banner ad fee from our advertisers and various sponsors from our suppliers. So we will never make money in a nasty way!
