Essi Systems, Inc. does not provide any advertising for any non-Essi Systems, Inc. products or services. You may receive administrative emails from Essi Systems, Inc.

What are cookies and how does Essi Systems, Inc. use them?
- Remind us of who you are and to access your account information (stored on our computers) in order to deliver to you a better and more personalized interactive service.
- Estimate our audience size. Each browser accessing Essi Systems, Inc. is given a unique cookie which is then used to determine the extent of repeat usage, usage by a registered user versus by an unregistered user, and to help target services based on user interests and behavior.
- Measure certain traffic patterns, which areas of Essi Systems, Inc.’s web site you have visited, and your visiting patterns in the aggregate. We use this research to understand how our users’ habits are similar or different from one another so that we can make each new experience on Essi Systems, Inc. a better one. We may use this information to better personalize the content and promotions that you and other users will see on our sites.
- There is a lot of confusion about cookies, how they are used, and what they can do. Cookies only contain information that the server computer “knew” in the first place, and can only be read by the serving domain that placed them. Each website utilizes its own cookie and does not access the cookies placed by other sites. Thus, if you frequent many websites, you will have a cookie from each of those websites automatically stored on your computer. If you have ever gone to a website that automatically provides personalized content without you having to “sign in,” such as your own stock portfolio, this is almost certainly being accomplished with a cookie. Since cookies are only text files, they cannot “run” on your computer and have no ability to search your computer for other information, or transmit it to anyone.
Can I disable cookies?
