Pixel:Pixel also called counting pixels, tracking pixels, web beacons or web bugs. These are small, invisible graphics in HTML emails or on web pages. When a document is opened, this small image is downloaded from a server on the Internet, where the download is registered there. This allows the operator of the server to see if and when an email has been opened or a website has been visited. This function is usually realized by calling a small program (JavaScript). This will allow certain types of information to be detected and shared on your computer system, such as the content of cookies, the time and date of the page view, and a description of the page on which the pixel is located.
