The site may use so-called “pixel tags”, “web beacons”, “clear GIFs” or similar means (collectively “Pixel Tags”) to compile aggregate statistics about site usage and response rates. Pixel Tags allow us to count users who have visited certain pages of the site, to deliver branded services, and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional services. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, Pixel Tags can tell the sender whether and when the email has been opened.
