Microsoft web pages may contain electronic images known as web beacons -
sometimes called single-pixel gifs - that may be used to help deliver
cookies on our sites, let us count users who have visited those pages and
deliver co-branded services. We may include web beacons in our promotional
e-mail messages or newsletters to determine whether messages have been
opened and acted upon.

We may also work with other companies that advertise on Microsoft sites to
place web beacons on their sites or in their advertisements to let us
develop statistics on how often clicking on an advertisement on a Microsoft
site results in a purchase or other action on the advertiser's site.

Finally, Microsoft sites may contain web beacons from third parties to help
us compile aggregated statistics regarding the effectiveness of our
promotional campaigns or other web site operations. These web beacons may
allow the third parties to set or read a cookie on your computer. We
prohibit third parties from using web beacons on our sites to collect or
access your personal information. Nevertheless, you may be able to opt out
from data collection or use by these third-party analytics companies by
