What Are Cookies, Pixel Tags and URL Links, and How Are These Used on Our Websites or in Our Emails?
Our Websites use, and our third party service providers may also use, Pixel Tags (also known as Web beacons, Web bugs, and Clear GIFs) on the Websites and in emails.

Pixel Tags may be used to collect the same information about your visit that is collected through cookies, as noted above.

This information may also be linked to and combined with information that we collect about you from your visits to our Websites.
