How Do We Use Analytics and Web Beacons? We use analytics and web beacon technologies throughout our sites to assess traffic patterns, determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns, determine unique visitor counts, and create an improved user experience throughout our sites. Web beacons are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, which are commonly used in the industry and on many major websites. We also may include web beacons in promotional email messages or electronic newsletters to determine the effectiveness of those campaigns.
When a user accesses a page or email containing a web beacon, a notice of that access is generated and sent to us. Because web beacons work in conjunction with cookies, users who do not want this information considered in association with anonymous cookie information should set their browsers to turn off cookies.
