Clear Gifs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs)
As with most websites on the Internet, the Website may employ a software technology called clear gifs (sometimes referred to as Web Beacons/Web Bugs) that help the Brokerage to better manage content on the website by informing it what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of users. The main difference between the two is that clear gifs are invisible on the page and are much smaller, about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. Clear gifs may or may not be tied to users personally identifiable information.
In addition, as with most websites on the Internet, the Website may also use clear gifs in its HTML-based emails to let it know which emails have been opened by the recipients. This allows the Brokerage to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. The emails will contain appropriate opt-out (unsubscribe) links.
