The Clockwork Web server uses cookies to automatically recognize and record the domain name from which you access the Internet and the names of the pages you visited while at our site.

Web Beacons
Our web page(s) or e-mail communications may occasionally contain electronic images known as "Web beacons" that allow us to track users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. Web beacons are not used to access your personally identifiable information, but rather to help us measure the effectiveness of our Internet marketing campaigns.
