Do we track whether users open our emails?
Our emails may contain a single, campaign-unique “web beacon pixel” to tell us whether our emails are opened and verify any clicks through to links or downloads within the email. We may use this information for purposes including determining which of our emails are more interesting or helpful to users. 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 request to receive emails from us in plain text rather than HTML.
