Emails send via a mass mailing system collectively called marketing emails may contain a single, campaign-unique “web beacon pixel”. This “beacon” tells us whether and how many times you have opened our emails, and verify any clicks through to links or advertisements within the email. We may use this information for marketing purposes including determining the interest levels of our emails, to query whether users who do not open our emails wish to continue receiving them, to check that content is being used in accordance with our terms and conditions. The pixel will be deleted when you delete the email. If you do not wish the pixel to be downloaded to your device, you should select to receive emails from us in plain text rather than HTML.
