About Cookies and Pixel Tags
What Are Cookies and Pixel tags?
We collect visitor information by using cookies and pixel tags.
A cookie is a small piece of information that a website can send to your browser and may then be stored on your computer’s hard drive. It acts as an anonymous tag that identifies your computer, but not your personally identifiable information. Cookies have the ability to store information about web pages and the advertisements you have viewed or clicked. For registered members, cookies can also save user information and screen preferences.
A pixel tag, also known as a clear GIF or web beacon, is an invisible tag placed on certain pages of our Website but not on your computer. When you access these pages, pixel tags generate a generic notice of that visit. They usually work in conjunction with cookies, registering when a particular computer visits a particular page. If you turn off cookies, the pixel tag will simply detect an anonymous Website visit.
We also collect information from cookies and pixel tags to evaluate responses to surveys and to provide you with specific or relevant content such as articles and educational material when you visit our Website.
It is important for us to know what visitors have to say about our Website. To contact us with your questions or comments, please email us at email@example.com.
