How We Use Web Beacons
We, or third parties with whom we have contracted or sub contracted, may use web beacons on our website, in our e-mails, in our advertisements on other websites, or in our advertisements in others’ e-mails. A web beacon is an electronic image that can be used to recognize a cookie on your device when you view a web page or e-mail. Web beacons help us measure the effectiveness of our website and our advertising in various ways, for example, by counting the number of individuals who visit our website from a particular advertisement or make a purchase from our website after viewing a particular advertisement as well as by telling us when a web page is viewed and providing a description of the page where the web beacon is placed. Web beacons also help us measure the effectiveness of our e-mail campaigns, for example, by counting the number of individuals who open or act upon an e-mail message, determining when an e-mail message is opened and determining how many times an e-mail message is forwarded.
The information we collect may include some limited personal information, and web beacons allow us to recognize users by accessing Nix Hydra cookies. We may also combine the information that we collect through web beacons with other personal information we have collected from you.
We may allow third parties to compile individual information or aggregated statistics from our use of web beacons to enable such third parties to determine the effectiveness of online marketing, such as by allowing such third parties to develop statistics on how often clicking on an advertisement results in a purchase or other action on the advertiser’s site. Aggregate information is anonymous and may include demographic and usage information.
You can make some web beacons unusable by rejecting cookies.
