WEBSITE – PIXEL TAGS

Heywood Spa Hotel and its third-party service providers use pixel tags (also known as ‘clear gifs or beacon gifs). Pixel tags are not visible to the user of the website and consist of a few lines of computer coding delivered with the web page. Pixel tags are not used to collect any personally identifiable information about you apart from what you voluntarily provide us.

 

Pixel tags are used to:

Track customer response to Heywood Spa Hotel’s advertisements and website content.

Determine your ability to receive HTML-based e-mail messages. Our e-mail service provider includes a pixel tag, referred to as a ‘coded sensor’ in all of the HTML-based messages sent on our behalf. The sensor activates when the e-mail is opened and the flags the e-mail address of the user as one that is capable of receiving HTML-based e-mail messages. This capability helps our service provider to send the e-mail in a format you can read. The sensor does not collect or use any other information. If you cannot receive HTML, you will not receive a functioning sensor.

Enable us to know how many users open an e-mail and allows our service provider to compile aggregated statistics about an e-mail campaign for us.

Allow us to target interactive advertising, enhance customer support and site usability and provide offers and promotions which we believe would be of interest to you.

WEBSITE – HOSTING

We may also share your personal data with third party website agencies where this is necessary for us to carry out our obligations to you.
