Essex Software uses web beacons alone or with cookies to gather information about how our customers and visitors use our websites and interact with emails from us. Web beacons are clear electronic images that can recognize certain types of information on your computer, such as cookies, when you viewed a particular website tied to the web beacon, and a description of a website tied to the web beacon. For example, Essex Software may place web beacons in marketing emails so that we are notified when you click on a link in the email that directs you to one of our websites. Web beacons help Essex Software to operate and improve the content of our websites and email communications.

This information may include your device and application identification numbers, your location, your browser type, your internet service provider and/or mobile carrier, the pages and files you viewed, your searches, your operating system and system configuration information, and date/time stamps associated with your usage. Due to internet communications standards, when you visit or use our websites, we automatically receive the URL of the website you came from and the website you go to when you leave our website. This information is used to analyze overall trends, to help us improve our websites, and to track and aggregate non-personal information.
