1. USE AND COLLECTION OF DATA ON OR THROUGH THE POSTSCRIPT WEBSITE
We also employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons), tags, and scripts that help us better manage the content on our website by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of website users, such as yourself. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on webpages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ personal information.
Cookies can be disabled, however, if you turn off your cookies you may find your enjoyment of the Internet, and our website, to be reduced or impaired. You may turn off your cookies by adjusting the appropriate setting on your browser. Please consult the HELP menu of your browser to learn how to turn your cookies off.
