We may employ, and our third party advertising partners may employ,
a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Pixel Tags/Web Beacons/Web

contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs
are embedded invisibly in HTML content and are about the size of the period at the
end of this sentence. We may tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’
personally identifiable information.
We may use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails
to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge
the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing
campaigns. If you would like to opt-out of these emails, please see "How
do I access,
update or delete my information?" below. If you wish, you may disable clear gifs
