Web Beacons

Web beacons, which are also known as clear GIFs, record, or capture your activity on our Site or email, which are typically not activated until a web page is loaded or the email is opened. Web beacons are often used in conjunction with website cookies, but they do not collect any personal information. Web beacons are best used for tracking advertising, downloads, and the general monitoring of our Site's analytics. Web beacons can be used to know how many users visit a particular website, or web page of that site. Essentially, they allow website hosts to know where visitors are spending their time. Web beacons can also be used in conjunction with ads so that advertisers can track how often a particular advertisement is viewed, as well as whether individuals are interacting or responding to ads , like clicking on it.

Web beacons are transparent, invisible graphic images that are on websites, which act as a tag or identifier that then interacts with website cookies to allow us to monitor a user's activities on our Site. Disabling cookies will keep web beacons from tracking your activity; however, web beacons cannot be turned off.

Web beacons can also be used by website hosts who send promotional emails, like us, so that we can track if our users are opening the emails we send. These beacons will not activate unless the email is opened.

To disable tracking/targeting functions that are of concern with respect to web beacons, users would have to opt out of or decline the use of website cookies. Thus, any effects for you or our Site would be the same as the effects of refusing or opting out of the use of website cookies.
