We use this information, which

We employ a software technology
called clear gifs that help us better manage content on our site
by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny
graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies,
and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast

the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers' personally
We use clear gifs in our HTML-based
emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients.
