Most standard emails that we send you have no tracking in at all. Some marketing and all platform emails we track, at an individual level, whether the user has opened and clicked on the email. We rarely use the latter information at a personal level, rather we use it to understand open and click rates on our emails to try and improve them. If you want to be sure that none of your email activity is tracked then you should opt out of Millgate Winchester Ltd's marketing emails which you can do at the bottom of every email you receive.
