What about cookies and transparent gifs?
We use pixels, or transparent GIF files, to help manage our online advertising. These files enable us and our advertising partner to recognize unique codes on your web browser, which in turn enables us to learn which advertisements bring users to our website. The information that we collect and share is anonymous and not personally identifiable. It does not contain your name, address, telephone number, or email address.
We also use pixels, or transparent gif files, to send information to third-party advertising companies. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.
