Email
From time to time, we may send electronic copies of bulletins and other material to some of our contacts.  The e-mail software that we use to send this material allows us to collect information about which contacts have received and opened our HTML e-mails. It does so by tracking when images and links contained in each email are retrieved and clicked on respectively. We collect this information to monitor and improve the effectiveness of the material we send by email. You are able to block the collection of this information by adjusting your e-mail software’s privacy settings to prevent the automatic downloading of images (although if you do, some or all of an email’s content may be unavailable unless you manually select to download images in that email) and by choosing not to click on the links.
