about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?
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.

to this and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services
that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the
