About Cookies

Cookies were originally designed to help a website distinguish a user’s browser as a previous visitor and thus save and remember any preferences that may have been set while the user was browsing the site. A cookie is a small string of text that a website can send to your browser. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive, pass on computer viruses, or capture your E-mail address. Currently, websites use cookies to enhance the user’s visit; in general, cookies can securely store a user’s ID and password, personalize home pages, identify which parts of a site have been visited or keep track of selections in a “shopping cart.

If you are just browsing an Epicurus Group website, a cookie may identify only your browser. If you become a registered user on an Epicurus Group website (with a designated user ID and password), we may use cookies so that we can provide personalized information that we believe will be of value to you based on preferences you have indicated while visiting the site. It is possible to set your browser to inform you when a cookie is being placed — this way, you have the opportunity to decide whether to accept the cookie. If you are just browsing our site and are not a registered user, you do not have to accept a cookie and you may still continue utilizing the publicly accessible portions of the site. However, if you are visiting a site where you will be accessing your confidential account information (such as Accessing Consulting Accounts or Feature Articles), you must accept that site’s cookies as they are essential for site administration and security. By accepting a cookie, keep in mind that your choice to decline E-mail offers remains unaffected. Here is how to set your cookie preferences:

Microsoft Internet Explorer: Select Tools from the browser’s menu. Choose the Internet Options and then Privacy to modify your preference if you wish to be warned before accepting cookies. Generally, most computers have the Privacy settings at “Medium”, though you may wish to alter that to “High” for added security protection or “Low” for less protection.

All other browsers Use the Help button or icon of your browser to determine that browser’s specific instructions for Cookies. Each browser handles them differently. Epicurus websites were designed to be viewed in Internet Explorer and we can only provide direct information for that specific browser.
