Types and Uses of Personal Information
When you use our websites, information that personally identifies you may be collected and processed by ESR employees. Usually, the only information collected will be your name, business address, mailing address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, and professional licensing information when you knowingly provide this information. In addition, this information may be collected as a result of the services or the products you request information about or purchase from us. Finally, ESR may collect or process personally identifiable information, such as your Internet domain or IP address, as part of the normal operation of our websites, or during the normal course of your activities on or use of our websites. In nearly all cases this data is collected or processed by, or transferred to, ESR's corporate headquarters in New York City NY. When you use our websites you are consenting to the collection, processing, transfer, or use of this information. If you choose not to consent to the collection, processing, transfer, or use of this information, then you should not use, or you should discontinue using, our websites.
Personal Information Shared with Third Parties
Without a user's express consent, ESR will not sell, trade, or disclose a user's personally identifiable information to any third party who would attempt to market products or services to the user. However, ESR may disclose information to a third party that is used to assist carrying out a transaction for you or providing a service to you (for example, packaging, sending, or delivering a purchase or information to you or clearing a credit card transaction).
ESR might be required to disclose information about users of our websites as a result of a subpoena, a search warrant, or some other legal process authorized by a court of law. In addition, ESR might disclose information about users of our websites to a third party who is assisting us in conducting an investigation about unauthorized activity that constitutes a violation of the policies for using our websites, or when circumstances dictate the need to protect or defend our rights or property to the full extent of the law.
ESR regularly implements industry-recommended technological and operational security processes for the purpose of protecting personally identifiable information from unauthorized access, loss, misuse, alteration, or unintentional destruction. Although no security measure can absolutely guarantee against unauthorized uses, ESR regularly reviews and updates our website security measures for the purpose of providing appropriate security for personally identifiable information.

ESR only wants to maintain accurate information about the users of our websites. You can request to be provided the individual information that has been gathered about you by contacting ESR (see the Contact Information section below). Upon receiving proper identification information, ESR will provide you the personally identifiable information that is maintained about your use of ESR's websites, or which you have supplied to ESR via ESR's websites.

When you browse this website, one or more temporary cookies may be placed on your computer to help ESR collect information to better understand your interests and to better serve you. Cookies are used on most major websites. What are "cookies?" Cookies are small bits of information stored by your web browser's software on your computer's hard drive or temporarily in your computer's memory. Using cookies is an industry standard. Cookies enhance a user's experience and access to information on a website. Cookies enable ESR to recognize you and personalize your experience on this website.
In addition to using cookies, ESR websites might employ "pixel tracking" a common process that is used in connection with advertisements and/or internal tracking. Pixel tracking involves the use of pixel tags – an invisible tag that is placed on various pages of a website that tracks a user's activity. Pixel tags are not visible to users and consist of a few lines of computer code. Pixel tracking measures the effectiveness of advertisements by compiling aggregate and specific usage statistics. ESR can access pixel tags to identify the activities and interests that better enable us to match products, services, and offers to the user's interests and needs. For example, if a user visits another ESR website as a result of an advertisement on another website, then the pixel tag will allow the advertiser to track that its advertisement brought the user to a website operated by ESR. If a user visits a website or other online system operated by ESR, and the user is linked to another website, then ESR also is able to determine that the user was sent to and/or interacted with a third-party website. This data is collected for use in marketing and research.
