10. Tracking technologies used in our emails
10.1. Our emails may contain tracking pixels that identify if and when you have opened an email that we have sent you, how many times you have read it and whether you have clicked on any links in that email. This helps us measure the effectiveness of our marketing email campaigns, make the emails we send to you more relevant to your interests, and to understand if you have opened and read any important administrative emails we might send you.
10.2. Most popular email clients will allow you to block these pixels by disabling certain external images in emails. You can do this through the settings on your email client – these generally give you the option of choosing whether emails will display "remote images", "remote content" or "images" by default.
10.3. Some browsers also give you the option of downloading and installing extensions that block pixels and other tracking technologies.
11. Links to third party sites
11.1. The Service may, from time to time, contain links to and from third-party websites, including those of other users, our partner networks, advertisers, partner merchants, news publications, retailers, and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for their policies. Please check the individual policies before you submit any information to those websites.
12. Our policy towards children
