Log Files, Web Beacons/GIFs
The Company uses a third-party provider that employs a software technology called “Clear Gifs” (also known as “web beacons” or “web bugs”), which are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to Cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users. In contrast to Cookies, which are stored on a web user’s computer hard drive, Clear Gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages or in emails and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. The Company uses Clear Gifs in its HTML-based emails to let it know which emails have been opened by the recipients. This allows the Company to gauge the effectiveness of its marketing campaigns. The Company ties the information gathered by Clear Gifs in emails to its Users’ Personal Information. If a User would like to opt-out of these emails, they should contact the Company directly by mail, telephone or email at the contact information provided below, or, at any time, a User may request to opt-out by clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ link located in the footer of all marketing communication.
