We and any marketing companies we use also embed web beacons in our marketing emails and/or on Our Website.

Web beacons are activated whenever You open a marketing email or access a page on Our Website which contains a web beacon. Web beacons transmit data when You view them but are not capable of accessing any other information on Your computer. Web beacons are not stored on Your hard drive unless You download a GIF image containing them. Some (but not all) browsers enable You to restrict the use of web beacons by either preventing them from sending information back to their source (for example, when You choose browser settings that block cookies and trackers), or by not accessing the images containing them (for example, if You select a ‘do not display images (in emails)’ setting in Your email server).
