Use of Pixel Tags
Pixel tags (a.k.a. clear gifs) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, that allow us to monitor the use of the Website and to deliver banner advertisements to you about our products and services as you browse the Internet. Pixel tags are not tied to users’ personally identifiable information. Pixel tags generally work in conjunction with cookies, registering when a particular computer visits a particular page. You cannot decline pixel tags; however, if you turn off cookies the pixel tag will simply detect an anonymous website visit. In addition, we use pixel tags in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by the recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. If you do not want to receive pixel tags you can opt-out of these emails or change the type of email you receive to text only.
