Web beacons
The emails sent by World Energy Council Italia in HTML format use Web beacons, sometimes also together with cookies, to fill in information regarding the use of the Website and the interactions with the user. A Web beacon is an electronic image, called “one pixel (1×1)” or “Clear GIF”. Web beacons, like cookies, can recognise certain types of information on the computer, the time and date on which a page has been visited and the description of the page where the Web beacon has been located. Web beacons in email messages can be disenabled by not downloading the images contained in the received message (this function depends on the type of email software operating on the user’s computer). But doing so does not always disenable all Web beacons or other automatic data-gathering tools in the email message, and this depends on the specific functions of the software. For further information about this, please refer to the information provided by the email software manufacturer or service supplier. If the user decides to receive emails or newsletters from this website as specified in the privacy policy, World Energy Council Italia can automatically gather personal information about the user. For example, the Web beacons and personalised URLs added to these emails or newsletters enable World Energy Council Italia to tell whether the user has opened them and whether they have clicked on the links contained therein. For more information on incorporated Web links, consult: allaboutcookies.org
