Pixel tags or clear GIFs: To help us understand the effectiveness of select communications and marketing efforts, we may use “message format” and “message open” sensing technologies that use pixel tags or clear GIFs (which are also called web beacons). These technologies allow us to know if your e-mail program is able to accept HTML e-mails and, if it is, to: (1) send you e-mails in that format; and (2) determine if you have opened our e-mail messages.
Outside sources: We may periodically collect Personal Information about you from retail partners, business partners, contractors, and other third parties.
