Newsletter Tracking

When sending out newsletters we use so-called web beacons or tracking pixels. A web beacon or a tracking pixel is a one-pixel image file embedded within the newsletter message, served to you from a remote server when you open the newsletter message. We use these to evaluate your user behavior. For this, the following information are linked to your email address and an individual ID:

(i) email delivered or not

(ii) email opened or not

(iii) timestamps

(iv) links clicked

(v) content viewed.

This data is used to create a user profile to better align the newsletter with your interests. In this way, FEDERATE can better understand the extent to which our offers are of interest to you. We record when you read our newsletter and on which links you click. This data is also linked to your activities on our website.
