What are Web Beacons?

Cartesio Consulting occasionally advertises on third-party web sites. As part of our effort to track the success of our advertising campaigns, we may at times use a visitor identification technology such as “web beacons”, or “action tags”, which count visitors who have come to the website after being exposed to an Cartesio Consulting banner ad on a third-party site. We do not use this technology to access your personal information and it is only used to compile aggregated statistics about visitors who come to the website to gauge the effectiveness of our ads.
