We also use tracking pixels or GIF files to support online advertising. These are small picture files which are integrated in the website to collate access statistics. This enables us to analyse how many visitors were on our pages and what adverts they accessed.
The information captured by tracking pixels contains neither your name, nor your address, telephone number or email address.
We use tracking pixels or GIF files solely for statistical purposes to collate anonymous access data.
