Cookies and Pixel Tags

A “pixel tag” is a clear GIF image used in combination with cookies to pass measured information to a third party.

Mavalus® may also provide information to regulatory authorities and law enforcement officials in accordance with applicable law or when we otherwise believe in good faith that the law requires it. In some instances, we may access or disclose your information to protect or defend our own legal rights, to guard against fraud, and/or to protect the safety and security of other customers/users.
