As well as cookies, we use other technologies to recognize and track visitors to our Site. A web beacon (also known as a “tracking pixel” or “clear GIF”) is a clear graphic image (typically a one-pixel tag) that is delivered through a web browser or HTML e-mail, typically in conjunction with a cookie.
Web beacons allow us, for example, to monitor how users move from one page within our website to another, to track access to our communications, to understand whether users have come to our website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to measure how content has been viewed and to improve Site performance.
