4. Web beacons
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. Certain email communications you receive from us may contain web beacons.
Web beacons allow us, for example, to obtain information such as the IP address of the computer device that downloaded the page on which the web beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the web beacon appears, the time the page containing the web beacon was viewed, the browser type used to view the page and the information in cookies. We use web beacons for activities such as monitoring the effectiveness of the headlines in our emails or the ad banners, to understand whether users have come to our Site from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to measure how ads have been viewed and to improve Site performance.
