6. Web Beacons
We currently contract with several online partners to help manage and optimize our Internet business and communications.

By supplementing our records, this information helps us learn things about, for example, what pages are most attractive to our visitors and which of our services most interest our customers. Although the marketing company logs the information coming from our Website on our behalf, we control how that data may and may not be used.
