Other Types of Information That May Be Collected
Cookies or Tracers
We use tracking scripts or "tracers" that recognize a unique identifier from a cookie placed on your computer by another non-WESMAR website. These are used by WESMAR to gauge the success of our own advertising. For instance, we may use a tracer to determine whether you visit our employment page after visiting a career site where WESMAR placed a banner advertisement. We do not use tracers to gather information on your use of the internet unrelated to WESMAR, or to determine your personal information, and you remain anonymous to WESMAR unless you choose to provide personal information, except as explained in Section.
Web beacons are small files that we may place on our Site, which count the number of unique users that have visited a specific page on the Site and the number of times a given page has been displayed. This information is collected generally in the aggregate and is not linked to any personal information (except as described below).
We may use "pixel tags," or short pieces of code, to better measure the effectiveness of our content. These also allow social networks and other services to deliver content to you based on your visit to our website.
We may track your visit by providing you with a unique universal resource locator, or URL, via an e-mail, a letter or other communication. When you use this unique URL, our website registers the visit. We use this information to measure the effectiveness of our advertising and other content.
