Cookies are small files that a website or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow it) which enable the website or service providers' systems to recognize your browser, capture and remember certain information.

A pixel tag, also known as a clear GIF or web beacon, is an invisible tag placed on certain pages of our website but not on your computer. When you access these pages, pixel tags generate a generic notice of that visit. They usually work in conjunction with Cookies, registering when a particular computer visits a specific page. If you turn off Cookies the pixel tag will simply detect an anonymous website visit.
