Privacy and Legal
At Reader's Digest, we respect you and your choice to do business with us, both online and off. That's why we've taken extra care to thoroughly explain what you can expect from us. The policy below applies to all Web sites owned and operated by Reader's Digest (collectively “Reader’s Digest Web sites”) unless otherwise indicated.
- How and what information is collected
- How Reader's Digest uses customer information
- What customers can do to retain their privacy
We urge you to carefully review this statement.
Every time you visit a Reader's Digest Web site, our servers automatically recognize your ISP domain name, but not your email address. This means our servers can identify "where" you're from, but not "who" you are. We may compile aggregate statistics about Web site visitors, traffic patterns and related site information, but these statistics include no personally identifiable information.
Some functions and services offered through Reader's Digest Web sites require that you provide personally identifiable information such as name, address, email address and telephone number. We may collect this information, for example, when you order a product, request a catalog, register to receive an email newsletter, use an online bulletin board or enter a contest online.
Online registration forms contain clearly identified checkboxes or buttons indicating that you may occasionally receive email correspondence from Reader's Digest, our affiliates and partners or other third parties. If you do not wish to receive these email messages, you can check the boxes or buttons that allow you to opt out. If you already have registered and wish to change your preferences or wish to correct information you provided to us, see the section below on Maintaining Your Personal Privacy.
Important: No personally identifiable information can be retrieved or captured by our Web site servers unless you volunteer it.
Building A Better Business For You
The information we collect is used to improve the content of our Web sites, making it easier for you to enjoy your time online with us.
If you supply us with your postal address or email address, you may receive periodic mailings from us about new products, services or upcoming events. Likewise, if you provide us with your telephone number, we may contact you by telephone regarding your online order.
From time to time, your postal address or email address may be made available to third parties. The categories of third parties we may share this information with include affiliates, partners, and any other reputable companies that we think may have a product or service you'd be interested in. However, you have the right to request that your name, postal address or e-mail address not be shared with any other business. In addition, we also may market certain third party services through our site. If you accept the offer, we will pass your relevant personal information, including name and credit/debit card number to that third party. Please understand that if you have previously unsubscribed, but then later consent to sharing your information by accepting a third party’s marketing offer, we will share your contact and billing information with that specific third party.
It is our policy NOT to allow disclosure of your telephone number to outsideindividuals or companies for the sale of products not produced by Reader's Digest.
Maintaining Your Personal Privacy
If you do not wish to receive mailings or telephone calls from Reader's Digest, or if you wish to request that your name not be shared with other reputable companies, simply let us know by emailing email@example.com or by calling toll-free, 1-800-880-3012.

All requests to be removed from telephone or mailing lists will be honored promptly. However, please note that there may be circumstances where your request overlaps current mailings. We apologize for any temporary inconvenience this may cause.
If this policy is updated or changed, we will post a notice on the home page (www.shoptasteofhome.com).
About Your Online Security...
Our servers use the best software available (Secure Sockets Layer protocol) for secure Internet transactions. When you place an online order, your information, such as a credit card number, is encrypted to prevent unauthorized access. This means that any information you send to Reader's Digest via the Internet is unreadable in transit. That makes ordering online through a secure connection one of the safest ways to shop!
