other tracking technologies, like web beacons?
Cookies are not
the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other,
similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels"
or "clear gifs"). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable
us to recognize when someone has visited our Websites or
opened an e-mail including them. This allows
us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within a
website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether
you have come to the website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party
website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing
campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function
properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
