What is a web beacon?
A web beacon-sometimes referred to as a clear GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) or pixel tag-is a line of code that is sometimes installed on some of web-pages to help the site owners to learn more about how our visitors interact with the content and services that are on offer, and to count the traffic to different areas of the website. A web beacon is a 1x1 pixel tag that is invisible to you and doesn't affect the content you see.
This helps those sites to provide a better service by allowing them to understand which areas of the site are more popular with visitors than others. Web beacons are not used to collect any personal information about you. But allow these sites to gather aggregated information about the use of the site. INCENTIVES PLUS pages may contain web beacons inserted by our advertising agency so that we can measure the effectiveness of our advertising on other websites. A web beacon only records a limited amount of information that could include the cookie number, the page ID and the time and date the page was accessed, it does not contain your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address.
