Web beacons are used in combination with cookies to measure the actions of visitors on websites.

We may also use web beacons in marketing emails sent by our system. If you receive the HTML formatted version of such emails and your email is configured to download images, a record of whether or not you open the email (and, if you open the email, how frequently you open it) will be recorded.  Your engagement with the content of the communication (such as which links you click on) will also be recorded.

We may use this information in aggregated form to give us an indication of the popularity of content and to help us make decisions about future content and formatting.  We may also use the information to publish more content relevant to users in future issues and to unsubscribe recipients who haven't opened our emails for a period of time.
