WHAT IS A WEB BEACON?
Web beacons are usually tiny transparent images (gifs) that help us track the activity on certain web pages. They can also send the website owner (for example, us or our technology partners) information in cookies such as whether an email with a web beacon in it has been opened. We use web beacons together with cookies to help us understand how you interact with our website and to better manage our website and email content. They do not carry any personally identifiable information and are only used to track the effectiveness of a particular campaign.

FACEBOOK CUSTOM AUDIENCE
This cookie allows us to target the advertising we do on Facebook more effectively by matching data we hold with that held by Facebook. Facebook then produces a list of non-identifiable users that an advertiser can use, which helps protect the privacy and security of the information. For privacy reasons, the list of individual matched users is not accessible to any advertiser, including ourselves. No data is added to an individual Facebook user account as a result of being added to a custom audience. Read more about Facebook Privacy here.
Facebook Connect makes it easier for you to take your online identity with you all over the Web, share what you do online with your friends and stay updated on what they're doing. You won't have to create separate accounts for every website, just use your Facebook login wherever Connect is available so you only use one login. When you log into a website with your Facebook account, the site can access information you've added on Facebook. The site does this to offer you a social and personalized experience.
The Facebook Platform Policies restrict how these sites can use your information. For example: If you've blocked someone on Facebook, they won't be able to see you on a site you've logged into.
When people log into a site, they won’t be able to see information you've added through Facebook that they wouldn’t be able to see by browsing on Facebook.
