To help us to understand whether you’ve opened an email we use web beacons. These are tiny, invisible images placed in emails to tell us whether you’ve opened them and how many times, how you interacted with them, which email service and web browser you used, which device you used and your IP address. They also help us display emails in the best format for your device.
Our emails contain a number of links, which have unique IDs for tracking purposes. These help us to understand who has clicked through to our website and what content appealed to them. This helps us to tailor future emails with even better content.
