WPA does not use “cookies” or “Pixel tags”.
WPA does use “click-through URLs” linked to content on the WPA website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications.
