Cookies and other automated means of data collection

Clear GIFs
Clear GIFs (also known as web beacons) are used in conjunction with cookies to help website operators understand how visitors interact with their websites. A Clear GIF is usually a transparent graphic image (usually 1 pixel x 1 pixel) placed on a website. Using a Clear GIF allows the website to measure the visitor’s actions by opening the page that contains it. It makes it easier to track and record a recognized browser’s activities, such as the path of pages visited on a website.

Clear GIFs, which can be embedded in web pages, videos or e-mails, can allow a web server to read certain types of information from the browser, check whether you have viewed a particular web page or e-mail, and determine, among other things, the date and time the Clear GIF was viewed, your computer’s IP address, and the URL of the web page from which it was viewed.
