Web Beacons. A web beacon is a programming code that can be used to display an 

image on a web page, but can also be used to transfer your unique user 

identification to a database and associate you with previously acquired 

information about an individual in a database. This allows Company to track 

certain websites you visit. Web beacons are used to track online behavioural 

habits for marketing purposes to determine products or services you may be

assigned to a particular computer. IP addresses are automatically logged by Web 

servers, collecting information about a user's traffic patterns. While the IP 

address does not identify an individual by name, it may, with the cooperation of 

the ISP, be used to locate and identify an individual using the Web. Your IP

which ISP you are using. Finally, other websites you visit have IP addresses, and
