4. USE OF WEB BEACONS OR GIF FILES
The Web pages of pinerivercheesestore.com may contain electronic images known as Web beacons - sometimes also called single-pixel gifs - that allow Pine River Cheese & Butter Co-Operative to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services.
