Nitrotek have opened a new site. They sent me a 10% discount code : "10OFF"

They also have the kit version of the Taigen Tiger 1 for those that like building their own tank.

And once you visit that site, all the adds on any other site you visit will be nitrotek ones.

I personally won't purchase from any site that uses such intrusive measures.

I Think I would see the Offer more as a warning than an invitation.
The word "Nitrotek" is enough to make me run in the opposite direction. :thumbdown:

I would agree with jarndice, I once ordered a taigen t34 from an ebay seller, after a bit of probing about I found the seller was nitrotek
using an alias of which there was a few all linking back to the same seller, to their credit a tank did arrive quite quickly however the
t34 had turned into a walker bulldog :haha:
it was returned through ebay and refunded :thumbup:

regards john :wave:

Not uncommon. After a visit to Hobbyking, the adverts I get are nearly all
Hobbyking - these come courtesy of Chrome and Google. It is part of the tailored adverts that Google "provide" as a service to users!. Can't blame the retailer.

I installed Ad-blocker years ago, I never see any ads at all, no interruptions to You Tube videos and nothing anywhere, targetted or otherwise. I also have a cookie killer, and turn off tracking. My internet life is complete. :D :D :D

One can blame the retailers, they sign up and pay for this service, and they put the cookies in my phone for Google to find.
I never get adds for forgebear, tankbear, Haya, Ludwigs, Welsh Dragon etc.

There must be another way - every day, without fail, I remove all the tracking cookies on my laptop and my phone, yet still the adverts appear. I have an ad blocker on both and unlike wibblywobbly, they still manage to bypass it.

Same here, and probably why we get the adverts, as Google supports it. And Google keeps our data for personalised advertising.
