How We Use Web Beacons
22 Associates or third parties with whom we have contracted or sub contracted, may use web beacons on our website, in our emails, in our advertisements on other websites, or in our advertisements in others' emails. Similarly, third parties whose content or ads appear at 22 Associates.com, or whose emails 22 Associates.com sends to our users, may also place web beacons in their ads or emails for purposes of measuring the effectiveness of the content, ads, or email.
A web beacon is an electronic image that can be used to recognize a cookie on your computer when you view a web page or email. Web beacons help us measure the effectiveness of our website and our advertising in various ways. For example, web beacons may count the number of individuals who visit our website from a particular advertisement or who make a purchase from our website after viewing a particular advertisement or they may tell us when a web page is viewed and provide a description of the page where the web beacon is placed. Web beacons may also measure the effectiveness of our email campaigns, by counting the number of individuals who open or act upon an email message, determining when an email message is opened, and determining how many times an email message is forwarded.
The information we collect through web beacons may include some limited personal information, and web beacons allow us to recognize users by accessing 22 Associates cookies. We may also combine the information that we collect through web beacons with other personal information we have collected from you. We use all of this information to better tailor our marketing to you and may use this information for other purposes, such as to enable a shopping cart, customize content on our website and undertake internal research.
We prohibit web beacons on our sites from being used by third parties to access your personal information. We may allow third parties to compile individual information or aggregated statistics from the use of web beacons on 22 Associates.com by 22 Associates, its agents, or others, to enable such third parties to determine the effectiveness of online marketing and to allow such third parties to develop statistics on how often clicking on an advertisement results in a purchase or other action on the advertiser's site. Aggregate information is anonymous and may include demographic and usage information. No personally identifiable information about you is shared with partners for this research.
You can make some web beacons unusable by rejecting cookies.
