Web Beacons/Web Bugs
Silver.com may utilize a software technology called “clear gifs” (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to “Cookies,” and are used to track the online movements of users. In contrast to “Cookies,” which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customer’s personal information. Rather, we use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and of our marketing campaigns.
From time to time, Silver.com may release traffic data and information gathered using “Cookies” in the aggregate, such as by publishing usage trends of the Site.
3. CONSENT TO RECEIVE EMAIL AND PROMOTIONAL MATERIALS

By unsubscribing from our Promotional Newsletter only, you may still receive promotional materials and transactional emails from us in the future.
4. SECURITY OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
