Dispatch Digital will periodically send you promotional email about services offered by Dispatch Digital and its advertisers and marketers on the Web. These promotions will be tailored to the interest categories you have indicated and are controlled by The Columbus Dispatch. Your identity will not be revealed to the marketer unless you respond directly to the marketer’s offer and provide your information. We may also send you periodic reminders about your print and online subscriptions.

You may “opt out” of receiving these offers. To change your mailings and newsletter settings:

Dispatch Digital asks for your home phone number to help us determine whether you are a print subscriber to The Columbus Dispatch newspaper. This information is valuable to us and also will allow us to extend future Web benefits to Dispatch Digital users who are also print subscribers. We do not use your phone number to telemarket. However, if you are a print subscriber, you may already have received or will receive periodic phone calls asking whether you are satisfied with the quality of your home-delivery service.

Yahoo! is an ad network partner that displays ads across Dispatch Digital Web sites. To improve your ad experience on and elsewhere on the Internet, we may send non-personal information to Yahoo! based on your browser’s activities, such as type of pages viewed and categories of interests, so that the advertising you see is relevant to you. Yahoo! also may use information regarding its own users to select which ads to display. Click here to learn more about Yahoo!’s ad practices, including how to opt out of receiving personalized ads.
