Collected Using Pixel Tags or Clear GIFs. To help us understand
the effectiveness of certain of our email marketing efforts,
Maxous may use "message format" and "message open" sensing
technologies. Both technologies require the use of pixel tags or
clear GIFs (also called web beacons). The "message format"
sensing technology allows us to recognize whether you have
enabled your email program to receive HTML emails; if so, this
information is then associated with your email address so that
subsequent messages can be sent to you in HTML format. The
"message open" sensing technology allows us to recognize whether
you have opened our email message. We can only detect this if
you have enabled your email program to receive HTML emails.
