Web beacons are site instrumentation that helps GOJO to determine the kind of response the online activities generate. For example, web beacons can document how many times a page has been viewed or how many of the e-mails, requested by visitors, are actually opened. Generally, any electronic image that is part of a web page or html-based e-mail, including ad banners, can act as a web beacon.
Although, as mentioned previously, visitors to this web site are not required to provide personal information to use the site, GOJO does collect personal information from visitors on a voluntary basis.
Some GOJO sites may offer special services such as:
- Product Samples
- The chance to participate in polls or express opinions
- Subscriptions to newsletters and other services
- The chance to participate in online forums or communities
- The ability to make purchases online
You will have to volunteer some information in order to take advantage of these features. Further details about these features are listed below.
