Other Automatic Data Collection Tools and Why They Are Used
Web Beacons: Gofer Parts may use, and permit select third parties to use web beacons (usually in combination with cookies) to compile information about user website usage and interactions to provide relevant content and ads.
A web beacon is characteristically a transparent graphic image embedded in online content, pictures, videos, and emails that allow a server to read information from a device, track when a user has viewed specific content or email messages, determines the date and time the beacon was viewed, and the IP address of the device used. As an example, Gofer Parts may use web beacons in our Online Properties, newsletters or emails to understand whether our mailing system is functioning effectively, and whether emails were opened.
Embedded Web Links: Gofer Parts emails often include links designed to redirect users to specific areas of the Online Properties via Gofer Parts servers and are used to determine which links in the email have been clicked. The redirection system allows Gofer Parts to change the destination URL, if necessary, and helps determine the effectiveness of Gofer Parts communications and marketing initiatives. Information about email and other interactions may be connected to users’ personal identities.

To opt-out from tracking on GoferParts.com website, the user must click on the “Opt-out from all tracking” button at the following link: https://goferparts.com/opt-out/. The opt-out request will set an opt-out cookie in the user’s browser.

This may not always disable a web beacon or other Automatic Data Collection Tools in the email message due to specific email software capabilities.
