Other Automatic Data Collection Tools and Why They Are Used
Web Beacons and Pixels: Camunda may use and permit select third-parties to use web beacons and pixels (often in combination with cookies) to compile information about user website usage and interactions to provide relevant content and ads. Those are characteristically transparent graphic images 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, Camunda 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: Camunda emails often include links designed to redirect users to specific areas of the Online Properties via Camunda servers, and are used to determine which links in the email have been clicked. The redirection system allows Camunda to change the destination URL, if necessary, and helps determine the effectiveness of Camunda communications and marketing initiatives. Information about email and other interactions may be connected to users’ personal identities.
Cookie Preferences: Users can control and adapt cookie settings by clicking “cookie preferences” at the bottom of our website.
