WHAT ABOUT OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES, LIKE WEB BEACONS THAT ARE SIMILAR TO COOKIES?

Other technologies such as web beacons (also calls pixel tags or clear gifs), tracking URLs or software development kits (SDKs) are used for similar purposes. Web beacons are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our service or opened an e-mail that we have sent them. Tracking URLs are custom generated links that help us understand where the traffic to our webpages comes from.
