Technologies Used To Collect Information
Our advertisers help us deliver a number of useful services which are free of charge to you. Our advertisers will often employ the use of a “click through URL” linked to content on their website. When a customer clicks one of these URL’s, they pass through a web server before arriving at the destination web page. They track this click through data to help determine general interest and measure the effectiveness of customer communications.
