We may use Link Tracking in email marketing campaigns. Link Tracking is a very common practice with all websites. The information gathered through this process helps us determine whether email sends are opened and what actions subscribers take on information contained in that message. We respect Your privacy and do not sell or otherwise disclose the information gathered in this process. We use this information to improve our marketing campaigns and provide You with information we believe will be of interest to You.
