Amazon Services LLC Associates Program
The owner of this website, surfacetip.com, 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 Amazon properties including, but not limited to, amazon.com.
surfacetip.com is an active part of the Amazon Associates Program. Being a part of this program means that every time you visit this site or follow a link to any national version of Amazon.com and make a purchase in less than 24 hours, I will be paid a small percentage of the total purchase bill you pay to Amazon.com. Rest assured that the price of the product you buy remains the same.
It is my rule not to link back to particular products just for the purpose of advertising them. I only link products, which have proved to be genuinely helpful to me such as books I have penned because, honestly, it would be a shame not to find my books helpful. The websites, which link back to such products, contain honest information and unbiased opinion on them. Simply put, I do not advertise products just to urge you to buy them; I recommend products because I found them useful.
At https://surfacetip.com, we recognize that privacy of your personal information is important. Here is information on what types of personal information we receive and collect when you use and visit https://surfacetip.com, and how we safeguard your information. We never sell your personal information to third parties.

We also use third party advertisements on https://surfacetip.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).

This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests (“interest based targeting”). The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history (For example, if you have been viewing sites about visiting Las Vegas, you may see Las Vegas hotel advertisements when viewing a non-related site, such as on a site about hockey). DART uses “no personally identifiable information”. It does 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.
