Mail chimp use single pixel gifs, also known as web beacons, in every email. These are very small graphic files that contain unique identifiers that enable MailChimp and Lamb Brooks to recognise when subscribers have opened an email or clicked certain links. These record each subscribers email address, IP address, date, and time associated with each open and click for a campaign. This data is used to create reports about how an email campaign performed and what actions subscribers took – including unsubscribes requests.
