When you access the Internet, the computers that host websites you visit (“servers”) automatically receive some anonymous information. This “usage data” may include a record of which web pages a web browser has visited. We may use usage data to provide advertising about goods and services that may be of interest to our customers, or to provide customized features and services.
We may elect to use third party advertising companies to advertise on our website, and in these instances may use a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. web beacons/web bugs/action tags/pixel tags) to better manage advertising on our website. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. Clear gifs may ping or alert the advertiser’s server about the online movements of web users. Web beacons help us measure the effectiveness of our website and our advertising. Web beacons also help us measure the effectiveness of our e-mail campaigns. The information collected may include some limited Personal Information, and web beacons allow us to recognize users by accessing cookies.

All this information is used to better tailor our advertising and promotions to you. We also use web beacons in conjunction with one-to-one marketing e-mails sent by our users to enable them to better track the effectiveness of such e-mails.
We may permit third parties to compile individual information or aggregated statistics from our use of web beacons to enable such third parties to determine the effectiveness of online marketing and to allow such third parties to develop purchasing or other statistics on the advertiser’s site.
