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.

How WX Uses Cookies, Pixel Tags and Google Analytics

WX uses cookies and pixel tags to provide better service, to learn and analyze how visitors use and navigate our Website, and how we can develop, manage, and improve the Website. Cookies also help us enhance navigation and the functionality of our Website, to securely maintain a session for existing members accessing password-protected areas, and to personalize aspects of a visitor’s experience.

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.

This Website uses Google Analytics. Google Analytics uses cookies to collect information about how visitors use our Website, but does not collect personally identifiable information. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the Website. The cookies collect information in an anonymous form, including the number of visitors to the Website, where visitors have come to the Website from and the pages they visited.

You can set your browser to notify you before you receive a cookie, giving you the opportunity to decide whether to accept it.
