Pixels can: collect information such as the browser used, the IP address, the visit frequency and the time of the visit, as well to track the actions performed by users on the website (purchases added to the cart, purchased products, or redirects to other web pages, opening of newsletters, actions that generate more visits and purchases, type of interested audience, etc.).
In addition to the use of tracking pixels or web beacons, we may use other user identification and tracking techniques known as fingerprinting that can verify certain technical parameters of the user's system (such as the browser used, operating system, screen resolution, installed plug-ins, font, IP address, language, time zone, etc.) and that once combined can be used for personalisation. Said information will be used to monitor the user's activity and browsing and to create a user profile.
