similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or
"clear gifs"). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to
recognize when someone has visited our Websites or opened an
e-mail including them. This allows us, for
example, to monitor the traffic patterns of
users from one page within a website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies,
to understand whether you have come to the website from an online advertisement
displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the
