Aone Panel's websites automatically gather certain information and store this information in log files. This gathered information includes data available from a user's web browser, including, without limitation, IP Address, browser type, internet service provider, referring/exiting pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and click stream data.
(D). Clear GIFs.
Clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of a sentence. Aone Panel may permit certain third party suppliers to set clear GIFs on the Panel referrals obtained through their websites. In addition, we may use clear GIFs in our HTML-based e-mails to let us know which e-mails recipients have opened. These GIFs allow us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications, panel recruitment efforts and the effectiveness of our panelist outreach campaigns. No personal information is contained in clear GIFs.
