Email communications

Web Beacons and tracking pixels

When we send you an electronic newsletter or mailing it may contain a small snippet of code called a web beacon. A web beacon, sometimes called a tracking pixel as it can be as small as just one pixel in size, allows us to collect certain information about your interaction with the email.

Through this web beacon we may capture your IP address and the date/time that you opened or interacted with our email and record any links you may click. We use the information we collect to understand what emails or services were of interest to you and this helps us understand if our campaigns are effective.

We also do this to better tailor our messages to you and optimise your html email experience.

Your Choices Regarding Our Use of Web Beacons

By setting your email client to display HTML emails as text only, you may be able to prevent the use of some web beacons. Please consult the “Help” section of your email client for more information.
