A clear GIF is typically a transparent graphic image (usually 1 pixel x 1 pixel) that is placed on a site. The use of a clear GIF allows the Website to measure the actions of the visitor opening the page that contains the clear GIF. We utilize clear GIFs to measure visitor behavior, to help us improve visitor experience and to manage site content. We may use clear GIFs on this Website, in our emails, in our advertisements on other websites.
In addition, we may use non-business IP addresses and other automated information collected to track aggregate information regarding website traffic. One of the uses for which this data may be gathered is for statistical purposes so that we may analyze trends and performance over time.

We may need to disclose certain information to comply with a legal requirement (such as a law, regulation, court order, subpoena or search warrant) in the course of a legal proceeding or in response to a law enforcement agency request.

Do Not Track Browser Setting
Some browsers incorporate a Do Not Track feature that signals to websites you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. Tracking is not the same as using or collecting information in connection with a single website. For these purposes tracking refers to collecting personally identifiable information from consumers who use or visit a website or online service as they move across different websites over time.
How browsers communicate the Do Not Track signal is not yet uniform. As a result, we may not interpret or respond to Do Not Track signals communicated by your browser..
For a description of Do Not Track protocols for browsers and mobile devices, or simply to learn more about the choices available to you, you can visit the All About Do Not Track website: http://allaboutdnt.com
