When the HTML code for the tracking pixel points to a site to retrieve the image, at the same time it can pass along information such as the IP address of the device that retrieved the image, the time the pixel was viewed and for how long, the type of browser that retrieved the image and previously set cookie values.

The same applies to the use of tracking pixels by those third parties.
