This site may transfer or collect collect information through web beacons (otherwise known as “web bugs”). A web beacon is an often-transparent graphic image, usually no larger than 1 pixel x 1 pixel, that is placed on a web site to monitor the behavior of the user visiting a web site or collection of sites.
Web beacons are often used in combination with cookies to understand how visitors interact with the pages and content on the pages of a web site. A web beacon can be detected by viewing the source code of a web page. Turning off the browser's cookies will prevent web beacons from tracking the user's activity. The web beacon will still account for an anonymous visit, but the user's unique information will not be recorded.
