Cookies and Web Beacons

A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, that is sent to your browser from a web site's server and stored on your computer\laptop\tablet\phone's hard drive.

Each web site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.

Other Companies' Cookies on OxWil Industries

  • Please note that OxWil Industries allows other companies that are presenting advertisements or researching users' response to advertisements on some of our pages to set and access their cookies on your computer.
  • Advertisers' and researchers' use of cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, not the .

Web pages may contain electronic images (called a "single-pixel GIF" or "web beacon") that allow a web site to count users who have visited that page or to access certain cookies. OxWil Industries uses web beacons in the following ways:

Within the OxWil Industries Network

  • OxWil Industries uses web beacons within the OxWil Industries network of web sites in order to count users and to recognize registered users by accessing OxWil Industries cookies.
  • Being able to access OxWil Industries cookies allows us to personalize your experience when you visit OxWil Industries web sites that are not on the domain.

Outside the OxWil Industries Network

  • OxWil Industries may use web beacons to conduct research on behalf of certain partners on their web sites. This research helps to measure and improve the effectiveness of certain advertising. Information recorded through these web beacons is used to report aggregate information about OxWil Industries users to our partners. This aggregate information may include demographic and usage information. No personally identifiable information about you is shared with partners from this research.
  • OxWil Industries' practice is to require our partners to disclose the presence of these web beacons on their pages in their privacy policies and state what choices are available to users regarding the collection and use of this information. You may choose to opt-out of OxWil Industries collecting and using this information for this research. Please email
  • Note: This opt-out applies to a specific browser rather than a specific user. Therefore you will have to opt-out separately from each computer or browser that you use.

Web Mail

  • OxWil Industries' practice is to include web beacons in HTML-formatted email messages (messages that include graphics) that OxWil Industries itself sends in order to count how many messages have been opened and acted upon.

In general, any electronic image viewed as part of a web page, including an ad banner, can act as a web beacon. Advertising networks that serve ads onto OxWil Industries may use web beacons in their advertisements.
