A cookie is a small piece of text stored on your device by a website you visit. Cookies help the website remember your interactions and preferences. That way your future visits are easier and the website is more useful to you.
Web beacons, also known as tags, pixel tags or clear GIFs, often work in conjunction with cookies. They are typically single-pixel transparent images embedded in a web page, email or other messaging. We may use web beacons to collect information about your website usage and interactions with promotions or emails that we send you. For example, web beacons can let us know which emails have been opened by a recipient.
Web beacons only collect limited information. This may include a user’s cookie number, a timestamp and a description of the page or email where the web beacon is placed. The information collected by web beacons allows us, or third parties working on our behalf, to understand how people interact with our content, as well as determine the effectiveness of certain communications and marketing campaigns.
