Web Beacons
In order to determine a user?s ability to receive HTML email in addition to whether or not an email has been opened. We include a ?web beacon? in a majority of the HTML email messages we send. A web beacon (actually a small .gif image) is activated when an HTML email is opened via a request for the image on our servers. This capability helps us send email in a format customers can read and enables us to track the aggregate number of emails opened. Users that do not want to receive email messages with web beacons can choose to receive their emails in text (non-HTML) format.

We also have the capability to track when a URL has been clicked inside of an email message sent by our system. We use this function to track which links were clicked and in what quantity, as well as the aggregate number of links clicked.

Client-side cookies are used to verify the login status of customers using our products or services linked directly with our website.
