COOKIES, TRACKING PIXELS, AND OTHER SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES
We or our third-party advertising providers may use clear pixels to track usage of our site or if a visitor accessed our site from a third-party Web site or advertisement service. “Clear pixels” are invisible files on web pages that you visit. When you visit a page on the site that contains a clear pixel, the clear pixel communicates with your computer to determine, among other things, whether you have been to that page before or viewed a particular advertisement. This information is only a transaction count and does not contain any information that could identify an individual user.
