The standard cookies, or HTML cookie is a small text file which a web server places on a user’s computer. Cookies enable us, and the third-party vendors we use to uniquely identify a computing device and link a computing device to previous web actions by the same device.

Pixels or Beacons are a 1x1 pixel graphic that are placed on the webpages to either track customer conversion or to place a user in a behavioral segment for online advertising purposes. They are also placed in the e-mails to track e-mail open, click, and purchase conversion tracking. We use tracking pixels on our website for online advertising and marketing e-mails that we send to prospects and customers.

We use vendors like Facebook, Google, Twitter, MailChimp, Hotjar, and Glia for online advertising, e-mail marketing, website analytics, customer support and social sharing. While we do not provide any website server logs or other website user information directly to these vendors, the cookies, pixels, and tags from these vendors can automatically collect information about our website visitors. Sometimes this information can be used by these vendors for their own purposes like making their products better, or to merge this information with other information that they have about our website users for creating behavioral profiles for use in online advertising. Some vendors like Google have provided settings and agreement addendums to restrict this secondary usage of information collected by them from our website visitors. Whenever such option is available from the vendor, we have enabled appropriate settings and signed the agreement addendum to restrict the secondary usage of information collected from our website visitors.
The information typically collected through pixels, cookies and tags by our vendors includes:
