2. How LeapYear Collects Your Information; Tracking and Cookies

When you register for an account with LeapYear, we may ask you to provide us with certain information in order to create your account, and to provide you with our LeapYear Products.  This information is collected by us when you fill out forms that may be provided to you through the LeapYear Products.

LeapYear, and third parties we interact with, including our third-party service providers, may use cookies, web beacons, hashed identifiers derived from email addresses for the purposes of cross-device tracking for targeted advertising, local shared objects (sometimes called “flash cookies”), and similar technologies in connection with your use of the LeapYear Products to provide and support the LeapYear Products (collectively referred to in this policy as “Cookies”). Cookies are small data files that may have unique identifiers, and reside, among other places, on your mobile device, in emails we send to you, and on our applications.  Locally shared objects or “flash cookies” are data files that can be created on your computer by the websites you visit and are a way for websites to store information for later use. Locally stored objects are different than cookies because they are stored in different parts of your computer than cookies. Web beacons are small strings of code that provide a method for delivering a graphic image on a web page or in an email message for the purpose of transferring data.

If Cookies are used, they may be used to collect information about you and your use of the LeapYear Products, such as your browser type, preferences, data relating to content that has been displayed to you or that you have clicked on, and the date and time of your use. Cookies may also be used in order to further features and processes on the LeapYear Products, provide authentication and security for your transactions using the LeapYear Products, store your preferences, facilitate relevant advertising, and help us learn more about how users engage with the LeapYear Products.

We sometimes use service providers to help us provide certain products and services or to integrate other features.  These third-party providers may collect information when you view or use them, including information about you and your device or browser. They may do this using Cookies or similar technologies.  These third-party providers also may use these technologies to help share information with us, like how you use their website or application.

As part of using our LeapYear Products, LeapYear’s Customers may submit to LeapYear electronic data or information (“Submitted Data”) that constitutes personal information of other individuals.  Such data may include an individual’s name, email address, phone number or any other data that the Customer chooses to submit to us.  LeapYear generally has no direct relationship with the individuals to whom Submitted Data may pertain.  LeapYear processes Submitted Data on behalf of our Customers and any uses of Customer Data by LeapYear are done so pursuant to our Terms of LeapYear Products or a separate agreement in place between LeapYear and the applicable Customer, which governs our treatment of Submitted Data.
