3.  Web Beacons

In addition to cookies, we may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons.  These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Sites or opened an e-mail that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Sites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our websites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns.  In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

4.  How Do I Manage Cookies?

You may also wish to review the Online Tracking Opt-Out Guide for additional options available for managing cookies. Note that because many of these mechanisms are specific to the device or browser on which they are exercised, you may need to perform these on every browser and device that you use.
