We may use “web beacons” (sometimes known as “tags”) on the Site and in our communications to gather information automatically. Websites can use web beacons to track a variety of things, including the number of visitors, the paths users take around the site and whether or not emails we send are opened. Web beacons can also be used to see which articles or links are most frequently visited by site visitors. They are small files that link web pages to specific web servers and their cookies.
Third-party web analytics services, like Google Analytics, are also used on the site to supply us with statistics and other data on users.

For further information about “do not track” signals, please visit this page.
