We may also include web beacons in HTML-formatted email messages that we send to determine which email messages were opened. A web beacon is often invisible because it is only 1 x 1 pixel in size with no color. A web beacon can also be known as a web bug, 1 by 1 GIF, invisible GIF, and tracker GIF.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF COOKIES AND HOW DO WE USE THEM?
