OTHER TOOLS AND TECHNOLOGIES
In addition to cookies, we may also use the following technologies to collect information.
|Web Beacons and Browser Web Storage
|A web beacon is an electronic file that signals when a webpage, advertisement, video, other content, an email, or a newsletter has been viewed. Sitecore uses web beacons in conjunction with cookies to collect data that helps us better understand how visitors move from page to page within websites.
Browser web storage enables websites to store data in a browser on a device. When used in "local storage" mode, it enables data to be stored across sessions (for example, so that the data are retrievable even after the browser has been closed and reopened).
|We collect your IP addresses to track and analyze information about the devices that are connecting to our systems and about where those devices are located.
For example, we use IP addresses to track which regions visitors to our website or Customers logging into our account come from.
|We may use a tracking technique that employs embedded URLs to allow use of the Sites without cookies. Embedded URLs allow limited information to follow you as you navigate the Sites but are not associated with Personal data and are not used beyond the session.
|Embedded Pixels and Similar Technologies.
|Sitecore and our service providers may use embedded pixel technologies for the purposes of identifying
unique user visits (as opposed to aggregate hits) and for advertising purposes. In addition, embedded
pixels or other technologies may be used in emails and our online display advertising to provide
information on when the email or ad was opened to track marketing campaign responsiveness; information
collected using these technologies may be associated with the recipient's email address.
The pixel technology used in the Sites enables the synchronization of internal unique identifiers between Sitecore (AddThis) and our third-party partners to facilitate interest-based advertising. For a list of those third-party partners, please click here. Please see the “How to Manage Cookies” section below for opt-out options.
|Widgets, Buttons, and Tools
|Our Sites may include widgets, which are interactive mini-programs that run on our Sites to provide
specific services from another company (e.g., links to bookmarked sites), along with buttons or other
tools that link to other companies’ services (e.g., a “Like” button or third-party map).
