What Are Cookies

An "Internet cookie" (the term known as a "browser cookie", or an "HTTP cookie", or simply a "cookie") is a small file consisting of letters and numbers that is stored on Your computer, handheld device, or other equipment that You use to access the Internet.

The cookie is installed by request issued by a server to a web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome) and is completely "passive" (does not contain software viruses or spyware and cannot access the information on the user’s devices). Cookies store information in a small text file that allows various website functionality to work correctly. The web browser will recognize cookies until they expire or are deleted.

In what is known as “Web 2.0”, "cookies" play an important role in facilitating access and delivery of multiple services over the Internet, such as customizing the version of the Sites based on the user’s current device type. Cookies offer valuable feedback on how websites are used so that they could be made more efficient and accessible to users. Cookies also enable multimedia and other applications on other websites to be included into a particular website to create a richer browsing experience.

What Are Pixels

A pixel is a tiny image that may be embedded within web pages and emails, requiring a call (which provides device and visit information) to third party servers in order for the pixel to be rendered in those web pages and emails. We use Facebook and Linkedin pixels to learn more about your interactions with email content or web content, such as whether you interacted with ads or posts. Pixels can also enable us and third parties to place cookies on your browser.
