Some portions of this website may request that you give us personally identifiable information, which is information that enables us to identify you, such as your name, e-mail or other address.

It is our intent to inform you before we collect personally identifiable information, and tell you what we intend to do with the information.  You will have the option of not providing the information, in which case you may still be able to access other portions of this website, although you may not be able to access certain programs or services.  In certain portions of this website, we also may enable you to “opt out” of certain uses of your information, or elect not to receive future communications or services.

In certain instances, we may make your information available to third parties with whom we have a relationship by which that third party is providing services on our behalf.  We will only provide those third parties with information that is necessary for them to perform the services and we require that those third parties first agree in writing to maintain the confidentiality of the information provided to them and we prohibit them from using that information for any purpose other than to provide the services on our behalf.  We may also disclose the information to our business partners, for marketing and other purposes which we believe may be beneficial to you.

Ergo may disclose personally identifiable information that it collects on the website if required to do so by law or when necessary in order to protect the rights of Ergo or its employees.
