(f) Web beacons: We use Web Beacons (which are small blocks of code; also called pixel tags) on our Websites and in our emails. When we send emails to clients, we may track behavior such as who opened the emails and who clicked the links. This allows us to measure the performance of email campaigns and to improve our features for specific segments of clients. To do this, we include single pixel gifs, also called web beacons, in emails we send. Web beacons allow us to collect information about when you open the email, your IP address, your browser or email client type, and other similar details. We also include Web Beacons in the emails we deliver for you. We use the data from those Web Beacons to understand what actions your customers took. Reports are also available to us when we send email to you, so we may collect and review that information.
(g) Information from other sources: From time to time we may obtain information about you or your customers from third party sources, such as public databases, social media platforms, third party data providers and our joint marketing partners. The information we receive depends on which services you authorize and any options that are available. We may also get information from third party services about individuals who are not yet our users (…but we hope will be!), which we may use, for example, for marketing and advertising purposes. We take steps to ensure that such third parties are legally permitted or required to disclose such information to us. Examples of the information we may receive from other sources include: demographic information, device information (such as IP addresses), location, and online behavioral data (such as information about your use of social media websites, page view information and search results and links).
