All of the information they collect is aggregated and anonymous, except that if you have an account with us, the information collected by us using performance cookies may be associated with your account. This information is only used to improve how our website operates.

WHAT ARE BEACONS, PIXEL TAGS, AND CLEAR GIFS.
These are all terms for similar technology that often works in the same way. These small strings of software code track events such as when a user visits a page or opens an email. They are used by Image3D to measure the effectiveness of our email campaigns, deliver more relevant content, and manage advertising for IMAGE3D Services. In many instances, beacons, pixel tags, and clear gifs work in conjunction with cookies to function properly, so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
