ESM Solutions Corporation (“we” or “us”) is committed to respecting your privacy and recognizing your need for appropriate protection and management of any personally identifiable information you share with us. Individual users who visit www.esmsolutions.com (the “Website”) will remain anonymous unless they voluntarily tell us who they are. However, we may track the Internet domain address from which people visit the Website and analyze the data for trends and statistics.
Information We Collect from You
We may, in certain circumstances (for example, when you purchase or license a product or service or when you download information) ask you to provide personal information about yourself, such as your name, email address, postal address, telephone number, credit card information, and password (collectively, “personal information”). Whether or not you choose to provide the information we request is entirely up to you. If you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to purchase products or services or access certain services, offers, and content on the Website.
We also collect personal information when you send us an inquiry, comment, or request and will use the information you provide to respond to such inquiry, comment, or request. We may also add this information to your user profile and use such information to (i) provide information about future products and services that may suit your particular interests, (ii) help you retrieve a password, (iii) analyze trends, (iv) track your activities on the Website, and (v) infer your interests.
Except as otherwise provided for herein, we restrict access to personal information solely to those employees who need such information to provide products or services to you.
When you visit the Website, we also collect anonymous usage information that is not linked to you as an individual (“Session Data”). This data may include browser type and version, time zone setting, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system, and platform. We may use Session Data for a variety of reasons, including to better understand things like how people use the Website, how many visitors arrive at specific pages, the length of stays on the Website, and the frequency of visits to the Website.
We also collect IP address information from any visitor to the Website and we log those addresses for system administrative purposes only. IP addresses are not used for identification and we do not link IP addresses to any information that is personally identifiable.

The Website is not intended for children under 16 years of age. No one under 16 may provide any information to or on the Website. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 16. If you are under 16, do not use or provide any information on the Website or through any of its features. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 16 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 16, please contact Customer Support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information Sharing with Partners and Third Parties

After your personal information has been shared with third party vendors, your personal information is subject to the privacy policies of these vendors. Contact them directly for information on their policies or to opt out of promotional communications from them.

Choices about How We Use and Disclose Your Information
When it comes to your personal information, you have rights.
You may opt out of having your personal information shared for the purpose of receiving product offers directly from us via email or postal mail. To do so, contact Customer Support at email@example.com to identify which communications you choose not to receive. If you choose not to give us your personal information at all, you can still access the Website; however, you will not be able to access areas that require personal information. NOTE however, that you may NOT opt-out of receiving administrative emails related to your account—unless you terminate your account with us.
You may also review and approve the information you have submitted to us. If any of this information changes, or if you no longer wish to use the Website, we will correct, update, or remove the information that you have provided to us. You may request that we do so by contacting Customer Support at firstname.lastname@example.org. To protect your privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before making corrections or granting access to your information.
The Website is operated and managed on servers located and operated within the United States. By visiting and using the Website, residents and citizens of countries and jurisdictions outside the United States understand and consent to the transfer, processing and sharing of information about yourself to companies located in the United States. You understand that the privacy laws of the United States may not be as comprehensive as those in your country or jurisdiction, and you agree and consent to the transfer of your personal information to us. We may store and process your personal information in the United States or abroad.
To protect your personal information, we comply with the security standards (PCI DSS) required by the PCI Security Standards Council (the “Council”). The Council was founded in 2006 by five prominent payment brands—including American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard, and Visa Inc. This global forum is responsible for the development, management, education, and awareness of security standards for credit and debit cards.
PCI DSS applies to all entities involved in payment card processing. This includes retailers where consumer purchases are made, payment card processors, credit card issuers, and service providers. We continually review our payment card security practices to ensure that those practices satisfy the requirements of the most current version of the PCI DSS compliance standards. If you suspect that you have received a phishing or other type of fraudulent communication, you should not click on any links, open any attachments, call any affiliated phone numbers, or follow any instructions outlined in the communication. If the phishing or other fraudulent communication purports to be associated with the Website, you should report the communication to us by sending an email to email@example.com. You should attach the unsolicited communication to your email report.
Data Security Measures
We take reasonable steps to maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your information. These safeguards may include data encryption, access authorization, firewalls, and physical access control to our data centers. We use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving user-identifiable information.
We have implemented several security features throughout the Website to prevent the unauthorized release of, or access to, the user-identifiable information that we collect.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also protect user-identifiable information off-line. Except as otherwise provided for herein, all of the information that we collect, not just the sensitive personal information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices and only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our customer support representatives) are granted access to user-identifiable information. Furthermore, all employees are kept up to date on our security and privacy practices.
Please be advised, however, that although we have endeavored to create a secure and reliable Website for you, the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to/from this site cannot be guaranteed. You should also recognize that your use of the Internet and the Website is solely at your own risk. You agree that we have no responsibility or liability for the security of user-identifiable information transmitted via the Website or via the Internet in general.
