Clear GIF’s, also known as web bugs, beacons, or tags, are small graphic images placed on a web page, web-based document, or in an e-mail message.

We may use clear GIF’s to capture statistical usage information for our web pages, features, or other elements on a web page. We may correlate this information to a user to personalize user experience and for statistical analysis of user experiences on our web pages.
