A cookie is a piece of information which a web server may place on your computer when you visit a web site. Cookies are commonly used by web sites to improve the user experience and have not been known to transmit computer viruses or otherwise harm your computer. Many cookies last only through a single session, or visit. Others may have an expiration date, or may remain on your computer until you delete them.

Pixel tags
A pixel tag is a transparent graphic image, sometimes called a web beacon or tracking beacon, placed on a web page or in an email, which indicates that a page or email has been viewed. In addition, a pixel tag may tell your browser to get content from another server.

The pixel tags on Banamex USA site are set only by companies we work with and supervise. In order to ensure the safekeeping of your information, network advertising companies and publishers are not permitted to directly collect information on our site.

Companies we work with
These companies are any third-party agents that conduct business on behalf of Citi. The services they provide include, but are not limited to, communications (e.g., email), marketing, data processing, customer acquisition and servicing and advertisement management.
When we use other companies to provide services for us, we require them to protect the confidentiality of information they receive.

Marketing Segments
These are groups of unique individuals or users categorized using information such as behaviors, demographics, attitudes and/or geographic differences. Companies can create marketing segments by using technologies like IP addresses to compile, over time, aggregated, non-personal information about how consumers are using the Internet. They consider where users saw and/or clicked on content and advertisements, and use this information to make inferences and predictions about the users' characteristics, interests and preferences. This information does not identify you personally nor does it report on particular online activities or behaviors.
