This website may use “pixel markers”, which are small graphic files that allow you to monitor the use of the website. A pixel marker can collect information such as the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the pixel marker appears; the Uniform Resource Locator (URL) of the page on which the pixel marker appears; the time the page containing the pixel marker was viewed; the type of browser that picked up the pixel marker; and the identification number of any cookies on the computer that were previously placed by that server. When exchanging correspondence with users via e-mail messages that support the HTML format, “format detection” technology may be used, which allows the pixel markers to communicate whether the other party has received and opened the message.
