WHAT INFORMATION DOES ESG COLLECT?
In collecting your personal information, we aim to provide you with a more customized experience. This information lets us provide services and features that we think are more likely to meet your needs. Of course, users can browse our website without providing any personal information, but once you give us this personal information, you are not anonymous to us.
ESG collects two types of information when you visit our website: information that may be used to identify you individually, such as your name and email address ("personal information"), and non-personal information, such as IP addresses, the type of browser you are using, and aggregated information about user activities on our website ("non-personal information").
Personal Information: We may specifically request personal information from you at certain points on our website. For example, when you sign up for our newsletter, we collect personal information to complete the process. This information may include, without limitation, your name, address, telephone number, and email address. If you apply to join our Distributor Program, we may collect information about your business, including, without limitation, your (or your organization's) name, email address, street address, telephone number, tax identification number, and information about your website (e.g., the URL, the number of unique users and page views, the demographics of your user base, etc.). From time to time, we may also request personal information about you and your interests in surveys, contest entry forms, or in other ways. You may always choose not to provide us with your personal information; however, this may limit our ability to provide you with a specific product or service, or to offer you personalized content.
Non-Personal Information: When you visit our website, we also collect non-personal information, such as your IP address, which is a number that can be used to identify your location and Internet Service Provider. We may also collect the URL from which you came to our website and the URLs visited on our website. A URL is the full address of a website page, which may contain some personal or identifying information about the person who is viewing it.
Use of Pixel Tags: We also collect information through the use of "pixel tags" included in email messages we may send to you. Pixel tags are tiny graphic files, not visible to the human eye, that are included in HTML-encoded email messages. When such a message is opened in an HTML-capable email program, the recipient's computer will access our server to retrieve the pixel tag file, allowing us to record and store, along with the recipient's email address, the date and time the recipient viewed the email message, the fact that the recipient's email program is capable of receiving HTML-encoded email, and other standard logging information. The pixel tag also may see or read cookies.
HOW DOES ESG USE OR DISCLOSE THE INFORMATION IT COLLECTS?
ESG's Use of Personal Information and Non-Personal Information: We use your personal information to process your requests, to improve the features of our website, and to communicate with you. We may also use your personal information to personalize our website, to target advertising or promotions that may be of interest to you, and to analyze aggregate user data in order to improve our services. On occasion, we may also contact you about ESG or Product Partners' products or services that we think you will find useful. We might also contact you to see if you are interested in participating in market research regarding ESG.

Co-Branded Offers: In arranging to have marketing and promotional information of certain companies or businesses with whom ESG or Distributor Partners may have formed a strategic alliance ("Distributor Companies"), we may disclose to the Distributor Companies your personal information, including information such as your shipping address, name, and contact information. If you do not want to us to disclose your personal information to the Distributor Companies, please refer to the Opt-Out Policy below.
Cookies: We may use cookie and IP address information to count and track website visits in the aggregate, to personalize the Website for each unique user, to control the frequency of individual advertisements to individual computers, and to target advertisements and promotions to broad demographic segments. We may also use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our website.
Customer Service Issues and Contacts: We may use your email address to contact you in response to customer service complaints you have submitted or to address a problem affecting your use of the service.
Legal Requirements: We may disclose personal information when we deem necessary or appropriate to law enforcement or other entities or third parties as required by law or to protect our rights or the rights of others, to prevent harm to persons or property, to fight fraud, identity theft, or otherwise to comply with the law or legal process, to respond to claims, to protect our systems and customers, to ensure the integrity and operation of our business and systems, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of ESG and its employees or others.
Business and Accounting Disclosures: We may disclose aggregate user data or non-personal information in order to describe our services to prospective business partners, advertisers, and others, but will do so only in a form that does not identify individual users.
Other Disclosures: Occasionally we may disclose personal information in other circumstances, but we will only do this if we have explained at the time we collect the information the purpose for which it will be disclosed.

In addition, when we contact you via email, we may include instructions to unsubscribe from future emails if you so choose.
This website has industry-standard security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control, and we make good-faith efforts to store your personal information in a secure operating environment. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk.
OTHER WEBSITES; LINKS
We may include links to websites operated by our business partners, affiliates, advertisers, and others. These third parties have separate data collection and privacy practices independent from ours, and thus ESG cannot be responsible for their policies or activities. Please contact those third parties directly if you have questions about their privacy policies.

By visiting our website and providing us with data, you acknowledge and agree that your personal information may be processed for the purposes identified in this policy. In addition, such data may be stored on servers located outside your resident jurisdiction and in jurisdictions which may have less stringent privacy practices than your own. By providing us with your data, you consent to the transfer of such data.
WHAT HAPPENS TO MY INFORMATION IF ESG IS SOLD OR MERGES WITH ANOTHER COMPANY?
