INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE COLLECT IT
When you use our Site, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser or mobile platform. This may include the following types of information: your location; computer or device configuration; IP address and URL of referring website, if any; pages viewed; number of visitors; and length of visits. We treat this data as “nonpersonal information,” except where required by law to treat it as “personally identifiable information” (or “PII”). Certain nonpersonal information could be considered part of your PII if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be personally identified or contacted. We use nonpersonal information to evaluate and improve our Site and Services.
HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
We may use personally identifiable information you provide us to: (1) provide our Services to you; (2) verify your right to access our Site or certain of our restricted Services; (3) respond to your questions and inquiries; (4) provide you with targeted offers, Site content, and advertising on the Site; (5) provide you with our newsletters, marketing or promotional materials, and other information that may be of interest to you, as well as from third parties, to the extent you have agreed to receive such third party communications; (6) verify credit card authorization before any purchases or to bill you for paid Services; (7) share information with our authorized service providers in order to provide you with the Services; (8) improve our products, offerings, and services; and (9) protect the security or integrity of the Site and our Service.
We may also combine your personally identifiable and nonpersonal information and aggregate it with information collected from other users to analyze and understand how our Service is used and to improve our products, offerings, and services. We may also provide aggregated information to our third-party partners so that they may understand how people use their services and how our users, collectively, use our Site. You may access, request changes to, delete, or request we may make no further use of your PII by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We may, however, retain an archived copy of your records as required by law or for legitimate business purposes.
We may also send you Esquire marketing or promotional materials by email and other information that may be of interest to you, only if you’ve requested to receive such communications. If you decide that you no longer wish to receiver any such communications from us, you may unsubscribe by using the “unsubscribe” feature included at the bottom of each email marketing communication.
THIRD-PARTY SITES AND AUTHORIZED SERVICE PROVIDERS
HOW WE PROTECT YOUR DATA
We care about the security of your information. We use commercially reasonable safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of information collected and maintained through the Service. However, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us or guarantee that information on the Service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by unauthorized persons. We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of stored personally identifiable information (as defined in applicable state and federal statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or posting on the Site, without unreasonable delay, consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
Our Services are hosted on computer servers located in the United States, where the privacy laws may differ from those in your jurisdiction. Therefore, your information may be transferred to, processed on, and stored in computers located outside of your state, province, country, or other governmental jurisdiction. Your use of this Site or the Service or your submission of any PII to us will constitute your consent to the transfer.
COMPLIANCE WITH LAW AND LAW ENFORCEMENT
We cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We can disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process including, but not limited to, subpoenas, to protect the property and rights of Esquire or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, illegal, unethical, or legally actionable activity. United States federal and state governments, courts, or law enforcement or regulatory agencies may be able to obtain disclosure of your information through laws applicable in the United States.
OUR POLICY TOWARDS CHILDREN
We are concerned about the privacy and safety of children when they use the internet. We will not knowingly request PII online from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. Our Site and Services are for general audiences and are not targeted to or intended for use by children. Unfortunately, we cannot always determine the age of a visitor to our Site or user of our Services.
Esquire may sell, divest, transfer, assign, share, or otherwise engage in a transaction that involves some or all of our assets, including any or all of the information described in this Policy, in the course of a corporate divestiture, merger, acquisition, joint venture, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization, or any other similar transaction or proceeding.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding privacy using the Services, please send a detailed message to email@example.com. We will make every effort to resolve your concerns.
