Your Media's enM@SSE program

program does. Through cookies, enM@SSE recognizes members, facilitates
their access to and use of the program, and tracks usage behaviour

If you have no problem accepting cookies, but wish to be informed of their appearance, you may turn on a warning prompt by modifying the cookie warning section in your browser's Preferences settings.
Get Active maintains a membership database that contains information about you if you elect to become a member of enM@SSE.
