If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of the Sites or all functionality of the ESTV Services.
g. We and our service providers may also use other technologies that are similar to cookies, such as browser storage and plugins and web beacons (also known as clear gifs or pixel tags). Like cookies, some of these technologies may store small amounts of data on your device. We may use these and various other technologies for similar purposes as cookies, such as to enforce our terms, prevent fraud, and analyze the use of the ESTV Service. There are various ways to exercise choice regarding these technologies.
