Who We Are

Nature TTL is a free resource for nature photographers, filled with tutorials, inspirational features, and equipment reviews. The website was founded in January 2014, and has since served thousands of photographers each day. We’re not some money grabbing organisation, and were founded purely as an educational resource to help inspire others. Good ethical practices have always been a part of our ethos, whether that be in our photography or how we handle your personal data. Your information is safe with Nature TTL.

Types of Data We Collect

Website Cookies

Nature TTL will sometimes use cookies to enhance your user experience. This is a piece of text that is saved to your browser by a website, and almost all websites on the internet will use cookies in some form. This allows a website to save particular information to your device so that it can later be retrieved. For example, this let’s us see how often you have been visiting our website.

Cookies do not collect personal information about you. You can, however, set your browser to not accept cookies from the Nature TTL website if you wish.

Google, being a third party entity, uses cookies to serve adverts on our website that allows us to fund and publish our content. They use DART cookies, enabling it to serve ads to you based on your visits to other websites. You can opt out of this by visiting Google’s website.

Google also collects anonymous information about your visits for the purpose of providing Nature TTL with statistics about users visiting our website. For example, they provide us with the number of visits per person, location, device used, browser type, etc. This data is all anonymous, and it is not possible for us to trace a particular person through this information.

Email Addresses

The backbone to Nature TTL is our mailing list – this allows us to contact our readers each week that opt-in to our newsletter. Emails you can expect to receive from Nature TTL include:

  • Weekly newsletter with new tutorials
  • Special editions for new subscribers, detailing some of our older articles
  • Occasional Nature TTL product promotions (such as new eBooks being launched)
  • Placements from third-party advertisers within our newsletter

You can provide Nature TTL with your email address voluntarily to join our newsletter, and it is possible for you to opt-out at anytime. You also have full access to your personal data, and can remove it from our system at anytime should you wish to do so.

Newsletter Sponsorships

We engage others to serve newsletter advertisements and perform related services across the web and in mobile applications. You can learn more about interest-based ads, or opt out of having your web browsing information used for behavioral advertising purposes by companies that participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance, by visiting

Opting Out of Targeted Advertising, Sharing, and Sales

We process personal information to understand and improve your experience with our Services and to serve you targeted advertisements. Some of these activities may be considered “sales” or “sharing” of your personal information or “targeted advertising” under certain privacy laws. To opt out of preference-based advertising, use the form linked below. Note, this will not stop you from seeing sponsorships or advertisements in our newsletters, but those ads will be selected randomly rather than based on your known preferences:

Access to Your Personal Information

This can be done easily by clicking the “unsubscribe” or “update preferences” links at the bottom of every email you will receive from us.

Mediavine Programmatic Advertising (Ver 1.1)

The Website works with Mediavine to manage third-party interest-based advertising appearing on the Website. Mediavine serves content and advertisements when you visit the Website, which may use first and third-party cookies. A cookie is a small text file which is sent to your computer or mobile device (referred to in this policy as a “device”) by the web server so that a website can remember some information about your browsing activity on the Website.

First party cookies are created by the website that you are visiting. A third-party cookie is frequently used in behavioral advertising and analytics and is created by a domain other than the website you are visiting. Third-party cookies, tags, pixels, beacons and other similar technologies (collectively, “Tags”) may be placed on the Website to monitor interaction with advertising content and to target and optimize advertising. Each internet browser has functionality so that you can block both first and third-party cookies and clear your browser’s cache. The “help” feature of the menu bar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to receive notification of new cookies, how to disable existing cookies and how to clear your browser’s cache. For more information about cookies and how to disable them, you can consult the information at All About Cookies.

Without cookies you may not be able to take full advantage of the Website content and features. Please note that rejecting cookies does not mean that you will no longer see ads when you visit our Site. In the event you opt-out, you will still see non-personalized advertisements on the Website.

The Website collects the following data using a cookie when serving personalized ads:

  • IP Address
  • Operating System type
  • Operating System version
  • Device Type
  • Language of the website
  • Web browser type
  • Email (in hashed form)

Mediavine Partners (companies listed below with whom Mediavine shares data) may also use this data to link to other end user information the partner has independently collected to deliver targeted advertisements. Mediavine Partners may also separately collect data about end users from other sources, such as advertising IDs or pixels, and link that data to data collected from Mediavine publishers in order to provide interest-based advertising across your online experience, including devices, browsers and apps. This data includes usage data, cookie information, device information, information about interactions between users and advertisements and websites, geolocation data, traffic data, and information about a visitor’s referral source to a particular website. Mediavine Partners may also create unique IDs to create audience segments, which are used to provide targeted advertising.

If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices to opt-in or opt-out of this data collection, please visit National Advertising Initiative opt out page. You may also visit Digital Advertising Alliance website and Network Advertising Initiative website to learn more information about interest-based advertising. You may download the AppChoices app at Digital Advertising Alliance’s AppChoices app to opt out in connection with mobile apps, or use the platform controls on your mobile device to opt out.
