Web beacons (otherwise known as "gifs" or "Web bugs") are electronic images that are small, graphical images on a Web page or Web-based document or in an email message, which are designed to allow the site owner or a third party to monitor the address and other information of the site. Web beacons are often invisible to the user because they are typically very small (only 1x1 pixel) and the same color as the background of the Web page, document or email message. Web beacons are represented as HTML IMG tags in the Web page. Users can click on "view profiles" of the Web page to see if the page is using a Web beacon.
These images may be used in Sprint services or emails. We use Web beacons to deliver cookies, count visits, understand usage and measure campaign effectiveness. We also use Web beacons to tell if an email has been opened and acted upon. Sprint may place Web beacons on its sites in conjunction with cookies to see how visitors are navigating and/or interacting with those sites. Web beacons collect the IP address of the computer to which the Web beacon is sent, the URL of the page on which the Web beacon is placed, and the time it was viewed. Web beacons also can be linked to personal information.
