Web beacon

A web beacon is a small image, usually transparent, placed on a website to enable tracking of the visitor’s activity. When the website’s HTML code requests the image, information can be transmitted, such as the visitor’s IP address, the length of time the web beacon was shown, the type of browser that was used, and any information stored in the cookie.

If you disable cookies in your browser, a web beacon will only be able to register an anonymous visit, without any unique information related to the visitor.

Disabling cookies

If you’d like to disable cookies, you can do so in your browser’s settings. Detailed information about cookie management in specific web browsers can be found on the browser vendors’ websites.
