Flippin huggiesclub have just sent me an email about the "exciting times ahead" and how I must be looking forward to my "imminent arrival". I had a v early miscarriage last August and baby would've been due in April. I'm generally absolutely fine about it, but could do without such an insensitive email. I don't know where they got their information - I didn't tell anyone about the pregnancy until after the m/c.
did you register with any baby site at the time?? You can ask to be taken off their list. A friend of mine lost her little boy at 4 months old and she was still recieving nappy vouchers for ages after.
No, I signed up for everything with ds (now 22 months), but the only person I told about this pregnancy was the nappylady coz it spurred me on to switch to cloth. I can't see her telling huggiesclub somehow!!
they really should be pulled up (pull-ups, nappies, sorry bad pun) about that, I was still getting tesco baby club things in a similar situation to you tassis, but was pg again by that time but I completely see your point
im so sorry for you. but i think that there departments dont communicate with each other at all. a friend of mine lost her baby at seven days old, and she still kept getting stuff in. despite writing to them. very very insensitive.
If you have the energy to do so, you could write to Huggies and ask them where they got your details from. They are legally required to respond.
If you are not satisfied with the response from Huggies, you could make a complaint to the Information Commissioner. Huggies has probably breached data privacy law if they 1. have your details on their marketing database without your permission and 2. if they have sent you an unsolicited marketing email without your express consent to receive emails from them.
This is exactly the kind of thing that data privacy laws are intended to prevent and the Commissioner may (only "may") pursue it, particularly if he receives several complaints.
