This Privacy Policy is incorporated by this reference into the Esplota, Inc. Terms of Service located at http://www.esplota.com/terms-of-service/ (“TOS”). The terms “Esplota,” “we,” and “us” include Esplota Inc. and its affiliates and/or subsidiaries. All other terms not defined in this Privacy Policy will have the meanings set forth in the TOS. This Privacy Policy explains how Esplota may:
