The information collected by web beacons allows us to statistically monitor how many people open our emails, are using our sites and services, and selected affiliates’, sponsors’, and advertisers’ sites and communications, and for what purposes. Our web beacons are not used to track your activity outside of our sites or apps, or those of our affiliates or sponsors. We do not link non-personal information from web beacons to personal information without your permission, except in connection with our marketing, promotion, or similar initiatives alone or jointly with our business partners and affiliates.
