When sending emails using the tool for automated marketing actions, the Company also uses the Pixel technology, which enables the tool to track when an email is opened. This involves a part of a code included in an email that enables the tracking of users or, rather, provides information whether an individual has opened an email or not. The technology is limited by options of individual email clients and their support to the HTML programming language or by the option of automatic image loading. The automated marketing tool is also filled with the personal data from various online contact forms, if provided to the Company, where the data is processed for direct marketing via emails. The tool also uses first-party cookies, which are described in detail in the Cookie Policy.
