Web pages may contain an electronic file called a web beacon, that allows a web site to count users who have visited that page or to access certain cookies. Shaycom uses web beacons in the following ways:

Within the Shaycom Network
  • Shaycom uses web beacons within the Shaycom network of web sites in order to count users and to recognize users by accessing Shaycom cookies.
  • Being able to access Shaycom cookies allows us to personalize your experience when you visit Shaycom web sites that are located both on and off of the shaycom.com domain. For example, Shaycom Gozoof pages are mostly located on the gozoof.com domain.
  • Shaycom's practice is to include web beacons in HTML-formatted email messages (messages that include graphics) that Shaycom, or its agents, sends in order to determine which email messages were opened and to note whether a message was acted upon.

In general, any file served as part of a web page, including an ad banner, can act as a web beacon. Shaycom may also include web beacons from other companies within pages served by Shaycom so that Shaycom's advertisers may receive auditing, research and reporting.
