cookie); rather, it is an identifier used by the Web site that originally placed
it on your hard drive. The actual contents of the cookie information can be
retrieved by the same server to identify the computer and subsequently to
customize, monitor, or regulate the use of a site based on information stored on
the host server. Therefore, cookies only identify the user's computer to the Web

Use of Web Beacons. We may use Web beacons on our site or other sites and may
permit third parties to place them on our site to monitor the effectiveness of
advertising or for other legitimate purposes. A Web beacon, also known as a "Web
bug," is a small, graphic image on a Web page, Web-based document or in an
e-mail message that is designed to allow the site owner or a third party to
monitor who is visiting a site. Web beacons are often invisible to the user
because they are typically very small (only 1-by-1 pixel) and the same color as
the background of the Web page, document or e-mail message. Web beacons are
represented as HTML IMG tags in the Web page; users can click on "view profiles"
of the web page to see whether the page is using a web beacon.
Web beacons collect the IP address of the computer that the Web beacon is sent
to, the URL of the page the Web beacon comes from and the time it was viewed.
Web beacons can also be linked to personal information. For example, advertising
networks use Web beacons to add information to a personal profile of what sites
a person is visiting and to determine what banner ads to display based on the
profile. Another use of Web beacons is to provide an independent accounting of
how many people have visited a particular Web site. Web beacons are also used to
gather statistics about Web browser usage at different places on the Internet.
