You can still browse our sites with cookies disabled, although some functions may not work. For example, you may not be able to engage in an anonymous Live Chat session. If you choose not to allow cookies when you first visit our websites and/or subsequently opt out of cookies, then because of the fact we’re unable to recognise you when you come back to the site, you’ll be asked again to set your cookie preferences.
Embedded Web links & Clear Gifs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs):
To gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and marketing campaigns, HTML emails from Perle often use embedded web links and clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs). Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that are embedded invisibly on HTML pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. Clear gifs are not stored on a user’s computer hard drive. The clear gifs in our HTML-based emails may let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. The embedded web links are designed to lead you to relevant areas on our websites after redirection through 3rd party servers. The redirection system allows Perle to change the destination URL of these links, if necessary, and may allow Perle to determine whether you have clicked a link in an email.
This information about the email interaction may be connected to your profile in our database. If you do not want Perle to collect this information, do not click links in an email that Perle sends. If you would like to opt-out of these emails, please see “Choice/Opt-out.”
Perle does not knowingly collect any information from children under the age of 13. If we learn that we have collected information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete that data from our systems.
