We care about security and privacy!
Be assured that all information about you that is sent to The Tasteful Garden is always kept completely confidential and all transactions are done on a safe secure server to prevent access to your information by others. Your personal information including your email is never sold to anyone and, if you prefer, you can turn off the cookies which store some information on your own computer.
Emails from us:
We also scan all emails that are sent to you for viruses and worms with the latest technology available. We hate junk mail as much as anyone and value our privacy as well. We promise that we will never send you any unnecessary email except for our monthly newsletter which of course you can request not to receive at any time. Our collection of your email address is only to make the shopping cart easy for you to use to log in to manage your account and to make us more efficient in communicating with you about your orders. If you prefer to order by telephone we will, of course, be available to take your call at 256-403-3413.
Payment by credit card on our website is done with complete PCI compliant software and security certification. We will ask you for a billing address to make sure you are the cardholder, a security code from the back of the card to assure you have the card in your possession, and we will be notified immediately if there is not a match. We will contact you if we feel fraudulent use of your card may have taken place. If you prefer, you may also use Paypal for payments as an extra level of security. For check payments, our electronic check processor asks for your Driver's License and date of birth to guarantee you are who you are supposed to be and we never store that information in our database.
Your credit card number will be stored for a short time to allow us to easily make changes to your order without passing the card information back and forth but after your order has been shipped, we purge all card numbers from our database for your protection. We also carefully screen anyone who has any access to your personal information and we keep logs of our own personnel that have access to our system.
We want you to know how much we value your privacy and security while shopping with The Tasteful Garden. If you have any further questions or would like to speak with us, just call customer service anytime at 256-403-3413.
