COOKIES, WEB BEACONS AND OTHER TECHNOLOGIES
Web beacons (sometimes called transparent GIFs, clear GIFs, or web bugs) are small strings of code that provide a way for us to deliver a small graphic image (usually invisible) on a web page or in an email. Web beacons can recognize certain types of information on your computer such as cookies, the time and date a page is viewed, and a description of the page where the web beacon is placed.
Other technologies, including Web storage and identifiers associated with your device, may be used for similar purposes. In this notice, we say "cookies" to discuss all of these technologies. Our websites may include web beacons, pixels, cookies, or similar technologies set by third-party service providers on our behalf.
You may encounter cookies from third parties who also collect information through cookies, web beacons, and other similar technologies about your online activities, either on our services or across the Internet, for reasons like those noted above. These companies may also deliver ads and otherwise track user behavior.
