Our web pages and emails contain web beacons or “pixel tags”. Web beacons and pixel tags allow us to track receipt of an email to you, to count users that have visited a web page or opened an email and collect other types of aggregate information. By using this information, we are able to measure the effectiveness of our content and how visitors use our Site (and use this information to improve the Site). This allows us to learn what pages are most attractive to our visitors, which parts of our Site are the most interesting and what kind of information our registered users like to see.

Some of the web beacons that are placed on our Sites are used only by us, and other web beacons are used by our service providers on our behalf to analyse how our Site is being used. Once you click on an email that contains a web beacon, your contact information is subsequently cross-referenced to the source e-mail and the relevant web beacon or pixel tag information.
