We may include web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or our newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.

We prohibit web beacons on our Sites from being used by third parties to collect or access your personal information.

[Use of Third Party Ad Networks The majority of the online banner advertisements you see on SYNTECHS web pages are displayed by SYNTECHS. However, we allow other companies, called third-party ad servers or ad networks, to display advertisements on SYNTECHS web pages. Some of these ad networks may place a persistent cookie on your computer in order to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement. In this way, ad networks may compile information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw their advertisements and determine which ads are clicked on. This information allows an ad network to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. SYNTECHS does not have access to the cookies that may be placed by the third-party ad servers or ad networks. SYNTECHS is not responsible for any information you provide to such third party ad networks.] [Controlling “Spam” or Unsolicited E-mail SYNTECHS is concerned about controlling unsolicited commercial e-mail, or “spam.” SYNTECHS will not sell, lease or rent its e-mail subscriber lists to third parties.]
