Clear Gifs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs)
We employ, or our third party advertising company employs, a software
technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us
better manage content on our site by informing us what content is

similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online
movements of Web users. The main difference between the two is that
clear gifs are invisible on the page and are much smaller, about the
size of the period at the end of this sentence.
In addition, we use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know
which emails have been opened by the recipients. This allows us to gauge
the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our
marketing campaigns. If users would like to opt-out of these emails,
please see the Opt-out section.
