Use of pixels in emails
Our emails often contain a single, campaign-unique “web beacon pixel” to tell us whether, and how many times, our messages are opened and to verify any clicks through to links or advertisements. We use this information to generate aggregate statistics on which of our emails are more interesting to recipients and their degree of engagement with our website. The pixel will be deleted when you delete the email. If you do not wish the pixel to be downloaded to your device, you should select to receive emails from us in plain text rather than HTML. Depending on which email software you are using, this option may be available in your settings.

Different browsers have different names and variations of this function – e.g. “Private Window” in Apple Safari and Firefox, “Incognito Window” in Google Chrome, and “InPrivate” in Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.
