Website Traffic Information
Cookies and Pixel Tags
Cookies are bits of information websites may send to a users Internet browser, and can then be stored on the hard drive. Cookies act as identifiers of computers.

A cookie can’t read unrelated data off your hard drive. A pixel tag, also known as a clear GIF or web beacon, is an invisible tag placed on certain pages of the Website but not on your computer. When pages containing pixel tags are accessed, they generate a generic notice. Pixel tags usually work in conjunction with cookies in order to identify when a certain computer visits a particular page. If you turn off cookies, the pixel tag will simply detect an anonymous Website visit and certain features of the Website may not be available.
