As well as using cookies on our website, we also use invisible 1×1 pixel tags, known as ‘clear pixels’. These pixels are used to collect statistical information about visitors from our social media page to our website and the pages they view.

Also, clear pixels are used in each email newsletter sent by our system. If you receive the HTML formatted version of our email newsletter and your email is configured to download images, a record of whether or not you open the email (and, if you open the email, how frequently you open it) will be saved with your subscriber history. Your engagement with the content of the communication (such as which links you click on) will also be recorded.

We use this information in aggregated form to give us an indication of the popularity of content and to help us make decisions about future content and formatting. We may also use the information to publish more content relevant to certain categories of subscribers in future issues and to unsubscribe recipients who haven’t opened our emails for a while.
