What are cookies?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information that a user’s device (computer, tablet or mobile) downloads when it visits a website. They allow the site to “remember” your device, but not specifically who is using it, and improve your user experience. By associating the identification numbers in the cookies with other customer information when, for example, you log-in to the site, then we know that the cookie information relates to you.

Pixel tags. We embed pixel tags (also called web beacons or clear GIFs) on web pages, ads, and emails.

We use pixel tags to measure the popularity of our features and services.
