Cookies and Web Beacons
Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other devices when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to remember you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a session cookie) or for multiple repeat visits (using a persistent cookie). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors and perform essential functions, such as allowing users to register and remain logged in.
Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as first party cookies), or by other websites who serve up content on that site (third party cookies).
We may also use third party advertisements on timbaderonline.com to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
Google AdSense uses your information to personalise adverts to make ads more useful to you. You may switch off personalisation in your Google settings: if you switch off personalisation you will still see adverts, but they may not be as relevant to you. For more information, see this page.
Current advertisers include: Google Adsense.

Tim Bader is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program and the iTunes affiliate program, operated by the Performance Horizon Group. These are affiliate advertising programs designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com and the iTunes music and app stores.
We may use third party Affiliate links, such as Amazon Associates or iTunes Affiliate links, which places a cookie on your computer when you click on the Affiliate links or Amazon Special links through to the related website or application, such as Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.com, iTunes or the Apple App Store on Mac, iPad or iPhone. This allows the Affiliate company or Amazon to record if you make any purchases via the Affiliate or Special link. Affiliate links, Amazon Associates links and iTunes Affiliate links use “non personally identifiable information”. They do NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers.
If you click on an affiliate link and purchase a product from the relevant affiliate site within a specific time period (depending on the affiliate program policy, 24 hours in the case of Amazon), then I will earn a small commission from the sale.
Amazon and the Amazon logo are trademarks of Amazon.com, Inc. or its affiliates.
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
Personally Identifiable Information
If you subscribe to the timbaderonline email list, or purchase a product through the website, or via a payment provider (I currently use Gumroad), you agree to provide basic details about yourself.
If you reside in the EU and you subscribe or make a purchase, you understand that the associated information may be recorded and held securely outside the EU. Currently, I use ConvertKit for my email service and Gumroad for payments. Both companies are located in the USA.
We will only collect the personally identifiable information necessary for the operation of your subscriber account, or completion of the relevant purchase. We will share your personally identifiable information with the applicable service, for the purpose of operating that service only. We do not share information with other third parties.
When subscribing to my email list, your details include your email address and optionally, your name. Other optional data items may also be collected, such as geolocation and IP address information (depending on your browser settings). Your data will be held for the duration of your subscription, and for a period of time after you unsubscribe (retention period determined by the email service provider policy and configuration settings). You may unsubscribe at any time by clicking the special links at the bottom of emails.
For purchases, you will be required to enter only those details necessary for processing the financial transaction. In most cases, purchases are completed by our payment provider (currently Gumroad) or Amazon and timbaderonline does not record or hold the associated personal information.
Under GDPR regulations, you have the right to have your personally identifiable information removed from any third party services. Currently, in order to do so, you must contact me at my timbaderonline.com email address, so I can arrange this for you. However, please be aware that data deleted in this way cannot be retrieved and some aspects of the operation of this website may no longer work as expected.
