Privacy and Disclosure Policy

This is the privacy policy and general disclosure policy for Homenet Howto.

Privacy information

Integrated tools

Tools and cookies which are integrated into the Homenet Howto website.

Webshop

If you visit and use our webshop then cookies are used to keep track of your shopping basket.

If you make a purchase through our webshop you will be asked to provide some very basic personal information. This information is gathered for financial reasons to keep track of transactions. The information can also be used later on for support or to provide access to previously purchased materials. We do not and will not use this data in any other way (no marketing, no sharing of the data with third parties etc).

Third party tools

Google Adsense and Google Analytics

We display ads to help us keep the website running. Ads are delivered by Google Adsense. These ads, their cookies and any information that is gathered by the advertisement network fall under the Google Privacy Policy.

Google’s privacy policy above also covers the use of Google Analytics which is enabled on Homenet Howto to visualise trends and user statistics for our visitors. We have opted out of enabling more intrusive user demographics information gathering in Google Analytics, so only the most basic information is gathered for our Google Analytics account. We use this information to see where our visitors are coming from (referral sites), how many users we have and to see general trends and user statistics.

Amazon Associates Program

Homenet Howto is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com

We use Amazon Services LLC Associates Program to publish sponsored links to Amazon.com products within different product categories that we can recommend based on product reviews and on our own experience.

Disclosure information

Here we disclose the various ways that Homenet Howto is generating an income.

Affiliate programs / Sponsored Links

We sometime post links to what we think are high quality products on Amazon. We are either using those products ourselves because we like them, or we have only heard good things about those products. The links contain our Amazon ID so that Amazon can see that our website made a referral to a product on Amazon.

If you choose to buy a product from Amazon after clicking one of our links then Amazon might hand out a commission to us for providing them with a sales opportunity. This doesn’t cost you anything extra! You pay the same price for the product as everybody else, but Amazon takes some of their profit and shares that profit with us.

In other words, if you are thinking of buying that product (or something similar) anyway and you like our website, then this is a great way of supporting our work!

Advertisements

We are displaying clickable ads on our website.

Sales

This includes sales of Licenses and PDF copies of our material, both through our online webshop and via personal contact with interested parties.

Donations

Donations made through our “Buy me a coffee” link in the footer of the website.
