Martin's E.S.P. - Privacy Policy

ESP takes privacy seriously. The Merriam-Webster’s defines privacy as, “freedom from unauthorized intrusion.” We wholeheartedly agree that unauthorized intrusion is a bad thing. So, at Martin's E.S.P., your privacy is our priority and we’re committed to protecting it at all times, in all situations. The information we collect about you when you become a customer is used to process your orders and to provide a more personalized experience on our site. We wish we could guarantee complete security of stored information, but our lawyers won’t let us make crazy promises (but rest assured that our security team works night and day to keep nefarious hackers away from all things private).

  • How Do We Use the Information We Collect?
  • We ask you to fill out a form that requests your name, address and e-mail address, as well as some demographic information. Martins ESP doesn’t share this data with anyone. Ever.

    We use your demographic information for several security purposes. Mostly to ensure that you are who you say you are and not someone using a stolen credit card.

  • Our Use of Log Files
  • When you visit our site we automatically log your IP address, your browser type and your access times. We use this information to conduct site performance evaluations, to see where visitors are coming from and to keep track of click data (the screens our users visit on our site). This data helps us figure out what content our members find most appealing so we can maximize your enjoyment of the site. Log files are not tied to personally identifiable information.

  • Site Security
  • We take your personal information very seriously. All ESP employees must learn and obey our security policies. Access to member personal information is limited to key management personnel and our member services department. The information is ID and password protected and our Web security is reviewed on a regular basis.

  • Correcting/Updating Your Personal Information
  • After becoming a ESP customer you can correct/update your personal information by clicking on the Account section on the right side of any page. The changes you make will be reflected in our databases instantly. If you want to deactivate your account, just contact our member services group through the ‘Contact Us’ section. We’ll delete your info .

  • Links To Other Sites
  • This Web site may contain links to other web sites. You should know that when you click on one of these links, you might be leaving the martinsesp.com site and entering another web site. These sites may independently collect or request information about you and we think you should read the privacy statements of these linked sites because their privacy policy might be different than ours.

  • Communication
  • Every so often we may send out email messages to tell you about cool new products, to remind you to give us some feedback, or to let you in on the latest promotional offers. In addition, you’ll receive communications from us 1) if you contact us and need a response, 2) to receive your orders, or 3) if we need to contact you for administrative purposes (such as winning one of our contests). Don’t worry, we won’t bombard you with advertising--administrative e-mails don’t contain promotional materials.

  • Legal Disclaimer
  • Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our Web site.

  • Supplementation
  • We might correct or supplement your address information with standardized postal representation in order to ensure that your orders are delivered. For instance, we might add those +4 digits to the end of your zip code (Do you know your +4? We didn’t think so). We do this because we want to make sure that our customers receive the order and to lower costs associated with our programs. And because the guys at the post office like when they see those +4 digits that make their jobs easier.

  • Contests
  • We love to give goodies to our customers, so we periodically run contests on our site. To enter these contests, you have to be a member of Martin's ESP.

  • Our Use of Cookies
  • No not a chocolate chip cookie, we’re talking about computer cookies, which are something else entirely. Cookies are pieces of information that your browser stores on your computer’s hard drive which identify you when you enter. We might use session cookies to provide you with a seamless experience on the site and to collect anonymous data so we can understand our site traffic and analyze our demographic information in aggregate form. Also, Third party vendors, including Google, may use cookies to serve ads on other sites based on prior visits to our website. You may opt out of Google’s use of cookies at any time by visiting the Google advertising opt-out page. If you’ve set your browser to reject cookies, our site won’t identify you.

  • Your Feedback is Always Welcome
