You may indicate your preferences as indicated below.

Clear gifs

We use a software technology called clear gifs, or invisible pixels, which help us to better manage the DSM Websites’ content by informing us of the effectiveness of that content. Those invisible pixels are small picture files with a unique ID, having a function similar to that of cookies, that are used to follow users’ movements on line. Unlike cookies, which are archived on a user’s computer hard drive, the invisible pixels are invisibly integrated into web pages and are approximately the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not associate the information collected by those invisible pixels with the personal information of our users.
