Additionally, for some e-mails sent in HTML format by EMLRC/FCEP/FEMF to its members through its listservs and electronic newsletters, we will collect specific information regarding what the recipient does with that email. For those email messages, EMLRC/FCEP/FEMF will monitor whether a recipient subsequently clicks through to links provided in the message. Other information collected through this tracking feature includes: email address of a user, the date and time of the user’s “click,” a message number, name of the list from which the message was sent, tracking URL number and destination page. EMLRC/FCEP/FEMF only uses this information to enhance its products and distribution of those products to its members. This information is not sold or distributed in any other manner.
