CFAE Email Campaigns with MailChimp

CFAE uses MailChimp to send emails.  MailChimp automatically places single pixel gifs, also known as web beacons, in every email CFAE sends.  These are tiny graphic files that contain unique identifiers that enable MailChimp and CFAE to recognize when subscribers open an email or click certain links.  These technologies record each subscribers email address, IP address, date, and time associated with each open and click for a campaign.  MailChimp uses this date to create reports for CFAE about how an email campaign performs and what actions subscribers take.
