What Are Cookies and Pixel tags?
We collect visitor information by using cookies and pixel tags. A cookie is a small piece of information that a website can send to your browser and may then be stored on your computer's hard drive.

For registered customers, cookies can also save user information and screen preferences.
A pixel tag, also known as a clear GIF or web beacon, is an invisible tag placed on certain pages of our website but not on your computer.

If you turn off cookies the pixel tag will simply detect an anonymous website visit.
