Cookies, web beacons and how we use them?

What is a cookie?

A "cookie" is a small data file stored by your Web browser on your computer or mobile device [hard drive].

That customer information is stored on our secured database.
What is a web beacon?

A "web beacon" or "pixel tag" or "clear gif" is typically a one-pixel image, used to pass information from your computer or mobile device to a website.

Why do we use cookies and web beacons?
