Unfortunately, its not just model manufacturers that will be able to use the data.I'm very connected with the group directly, I was involved before it even went official.
I will contact Bill Derville directly, whose brainchild this is.
I understand the motivation to track who reads the newsletter, but I think it is common courtesy to let people know they are tracked if they download it. They just want statistics to know how many people have accessed it, but since the goal is to get advertisers, clearly only a fool would think those statistics would not be shared with model train manufacturers.
Again, all I will say is that there should be a note explaining this.
Greg,Hmm, not super happy they put you through Orangedox... (in case you don't like being tracked)
Orangedox talks about tracking:
Track your sales & marketing material, know exactly which customer or prospect viewed/downloaded your material right down to the pages they viewed and for how long.www.orangedox.com
Official garden newsletter web site:
And you can get more info than just the newsletter.
I'll be downloading it and putting on our club site so people don't need to be actively tracked.
Yeah read that but still trying to get my head round the difference between the tracking by them and by Facebook for example.yes, read my post #6 and go to the orangedox link I posted, you will soon see that it is an organization to collect information about you.
