Privacy Policy

Last updated: February 23, 2023

Thank you for visiting the website of Leap Educational Consulting (“LEC”, “we”, “our”, or “us”)! We are deeply committed to respecting your privacy and are providing this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) to explain how we collect, use, share and otherwise process your personal information:

 

  1. when you visit or use https://www.leapeducationalconsulting.org or other websites, blogs, applications, or services that link to this Privacy Policy (the “Services”); or

  2. otherwise submit information to us by phone or email in response to outreach from LEC.

 

If you are a California resident, please see Section 9 of this Privacy Policy for further details on how we handle your information and how to exercise your rights.

 

LEC may, in its sole discretion, amend this Privacy Policy from time to time. To ensure you are able to remain informed about the information we collect and how we use it, material changes to our Privacy Policy will be reflected here.

1. YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. By using the Services, you agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy and the Terms and Conditions of Use. If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Services.

 

2. IMPORTANT NOTES TO USERS

United States Only 

The Services are intended for access and use in the United States only. If you choose to access the Services from outside the United States, your personal information will be transferred to and processed in the United States and may be transferred to and processed by our affiliates and service vendors in other countries where data protection laws differ. We make no representation that the Services, the contents thereof, or the specific functionality are appropriate or available for use outside the United States or otherwise comply with any laws, rules, and regulations outside the United States.

Age Eligibility

The Services are not intended for individuals under 18 years of age, and we do not knowingly solicit or collect personal information from individuals under 18 years of age in connection with the Services. If you believe we have collected information from such an individual, you may directly request the deletion of such information by contacting us via any of the methods or addresses listed in Section 8 below.

 

3. INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT FROM YOU

Information You Provide.

LEC may collect information that you provide when you use the Services, such as when you:   

  1. browse the Services and interact with its features;

  2. sign up for our newsletter or other email alerts;

  3. fill out online surveys;

  4. send questions or comments via email; or

  5. otherwise communicate with us through the Services.

Depending on the activity, the types of personal information that you and we or our service providers collect, including in the last 12 months, may include:

  1. your first and/or last name;

  2. email address;

  3. telephone number; and

  4. other contact or identifying information that you choose to provide.

Non-personal information you may also provide includes your organization’s name and mailing address, as well as your job title. When you provide this information at the same time as you provide certain personal information (e.g., your name or other contact or identifying information), we may combine these data points. Standing alone, these pieces of non-personal information we collect cannot be used to identify or directly contact you. However, when we combine your non-personal information with your personal information, it may become personally identifiable (e.g., first and last name combined with birth date).

In some cases, we may also collect information you provide about others, such as when you refer someone to our Services. We will use this information to fulfill your requests and will not send communications to your contacts unrelated to your requests unless they separately consent to receive communications from us.

 

Information We Collect Automatically From You.

When you access or use our Services, we may also automatically collect information about your visit. When you visit our websites, the personal information we collect is your computer's Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, which we use for the support of our internal operations. The non-personal information we and our service providers may collect includes your operating system, access times, browser type and language, country, and the URL of the website you visited before navigating to our Services. If you access our Services via a mobile device, we may also collect your device make and model, mobile carrier, operating system version, language your device is set to, mobile web browser type and version, the country in which you are using your device, and non-personal analytics and statistical data regarding use of the websites (e.g., downloads, number of users, sessions, frequency of use, retention, territories, and in-game events).

To collect this information, we use various technologies, including the following:

Cookies: Cookies are small data files stored on your computer or mobile device by a website. Among other things, cookies help us improve our Services and your experience, see which areas and features of our Services are popular, and count visits. For more information about cookies, and how to disable them, please see Section 6 below.

In addition, when you view a video on our Services, we may set a "flash cookie" (sometimes called a "flash object") on your computer or device. Flash cookies are not managed by the same browser settings as those used for browser cookies. For more information on how you can delete flash cookies, please visit http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager02.html#118539.

 

Clear GIFs: Clear GIFs, sometimes called "web bugs" or "web beacons," are small electronic images that are placed on a web page or in an email message. We use clear GIFs to monitor user behavior, deliver cookies, collect information, count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness, and to tell if a recipient has opened and acted upon an email.

Log Files: Log files record website activity on our Services and enable us to gather statistics about our users' browsing habits. These entries help LEC determine (among other things) how many and how often users have accessed or used our Services, which pages of our Services they've visited, and other similar data.

Do Not Track (DNT) Signals: Your browser may allow you to set a Do Not Track (DNT) signal indicating that you do not wish your online activity to be tracked. Currently, our system does not support and cannot act on DNT signal headers that we may receive. However, the choices that we provide you concerning collection and use of your personal information will continue to operate as described in this Privacy Policy

We may associate the information we collect from these technologies with other personal information that you provide for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.

Information We Collect from Other Sources

We may also obtain information from other sources and combine that with information we collect through our Services. For example, if you access our Services through a third-party social networking site, we may have access to certain information from that site, such as your user name, in accordance with the authorization procedures determined by such third-party social networking site.

Website Analytics

We use analytics services and software provided by third parties to help us understand how users access and use the Services. These tools and services use cookies, web beacons, and other devices or technologies on our Services to enable them to track traffic data. The data collected typically includes information such as your IP address, your Internet Service Provider, your web browser, the time spent on web pages, the links clicked, and the content viewed on those pages. We use this information to improve our Services and your experience, to see which areas and features of our Services are popular, and to count visits.

 

Third Party Advertising

We engage third parties to place ads for our products and services on other websites. These third parties use cookies, web beacons and other devices or technologies to collect information about your visits to websites and mobile applications, including LEC’s websites and mobile applications. The data collected typically includes information such as your IP address, your web browser, web pages viewed, time spent on pages, links clicked and whether you purchased an advertised product. These third parties use this information to deliver advertising and/or content targeted to your interests. For more information about targeted advertising provided by these third parties, and how to opt out of having your information used in this way by companies that participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance, please visit: www.aboutads.info/choices or www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp. You may refer to our list of third parties in order to see which of our third party service providers offer consumer opt-out choices through the Digital Advertising Alliance’s (DAA) and/or Network Advertising Initiative’s (NAI) sites. LEC is not responsible for the effectiveness of, or compliance with, any third parties’ opt-out options or programs or the accuracy of their statements regarding their opt-out options or programs.

 

4. HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION

We use personal information collected through the Services for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy or as otherwise disclosed to you on or in connection with the Services. For example, we may use your information to:

5. HOW WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION

Sharing of Information

We do not share your personal information with third parties other than as described in this Policy or in connection with the Services, including:

  • With your consent, including if we notify you through our Services that the information you provide will be shared in a particular manner and you provide such information;

  • With third party vendors, consultants and other service providers who are working on our behalf and need access to your information to carry out their work for us. We require these entities to maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of the personal information they obtain from us.

  • With our affiliates for internal business purposes;

  • With our affiliates and third parties for LEC’s own marketing purposes and those affiliates’ and third parties’ own business purposes, including direct marketing purposes (California residents have certain rights set forth in Section 9);

  • When we believe it is necessary or appropriate to: (i) comply with applicable law or legal process or to respond to lawful requests or legal authorities; (ii) protect the rights and property of LEC and our employees, agents, users and other third parties, including to enforce our agreements, policies and terms of use and protect against fraudulent, abusive, inappropriate, or unlawful use of our Services; and (iii) protect the safety of LEC, our users or any third party; and

  • In connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, bankruptcy or reorganization, financing, or acquisition of all or a portion of our business to another company.

We may also share aggregated information or information that we have collected from you through the Services where we have taken reasonable measures to de-identify such information.

Social Sharing Features

The Services may offer third party social sharing features and other integrated tools (such as the Facebook or LinkedIn widget), which let you share actions you take on our Services with other media, and vice versa. The use of such features may enable the sharing of information with your friends, colleagues or the public, depending on the settings you establish with the third party that provides these features. The third party provider may also collect other information in connection with your use of their features, including your IP address, which page you are visiting on our Services, and may set a cookie to enable the features to function properly. For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and processing in connection with social sharing features, please visit the privacy policies of the third parties that provide these features.

Linking to Third Party Sites or Online Services

To provide relevant information not found on our Services and to allow you to interact with other websites and/or applications in which you may have accounts (such as Facebook and other social media sites), LEC may provide links to or embed third-party applications that allow login from our Services to third party websites. Your use of these third party websites and/or applications is subject to the third parties' privacy policies and terms of use, and we encourage you to read the third parties' privacy policies and terms of use before submitting personal or other information or using the websites and/or applications. These links are not intended to be, and should not be construed as, an endorsement of these Services by LEC.

7. INFORMATION SECURITY


LEC has established protocols and procedures designed to protect your personal information against loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and/or destruction. For example, LEC strives to provide only those employees performing a legitimate business function with access to users’ personal information. Please be aware, however, that no security measure is ever perfect or impenetrable.


LEC retains your information for as long as is reasonably necessary to provide you with our services and as long as is reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations or to perform our agreements.

9. CALIFORNIA ADDENDUM

These additional disclosures for California residents apply only to individuals who reside in California. The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) and the California Privacy Rights Act (“CPRA”) provides additional rights to know, delete and opt out, and requires businesses collecting or disclosing personal information to provide notices and means to exercise rights.

CALIFORNIA NOTICE OF COLLECTION

In the past 12 months, we or our service providers may have collected the following categories of personal information in connection with the Services:

  • Identifiers, including IP address.

  • Name, address, phone number, and mailing address to the extent you are interacting with the LEC team.

  • Internet activity, including history of visiting and interacting with our Services, browser type, browser language and other information collected automatically.

  • Geolocation data, including location enabled services such as WiFi.

For more information on information we collect, including the sources we receive information from, review Section 3 of this Privacy Policy. We collect and use these categories of personal information for the business purposes described in Section 4, including to provide, manage and improve our Services. LEC does not generally sell information as the term “sell” is traditionally understood. However, to the extent “sale” would be interpreted to include any of the activities described in Section 5, we will comply with applicable law as to such activity.

RIGHT TO KNOW AND DELETE

If you are a California resident, you have the right to delete personal information we have collected about you and you have the right to know certain information about our data practices in the preceding 12 months. In particular, you have the right to request the:

  • categories of personal information we have collected about you;

  • categories of sources from which the personal information was collected;

  • categories of personal information about you we disclosed for a business purpose or sold;

  • categories of third parties to whom the personal information was sold or disclosed for a business purpose;

  • business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling the personal information; and

  • specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you.


To exercise any of these rights, please contact us. In the request, please specify which right you are seeking to exercise and the scope of the request. We will confirm receipt of your request within 10 days. We may require specific information from you to help us verify your identity and process your request. Please note that, in many instances, LEC does not collect types of personal information that enable us to identify you. As such, if we do not have information that permits us to verify your identity, we may deny your requests to know or delete.

RIGHT TO OPT OUT

Under the CCPA and CPRA, you have the right to opt out of the sale of your personal information to third parties at any time. LEC does not “sell” your personal information as it is currently defined under applicable law. You may contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

 

AUTHORIZED AGENT

You can designate an authorized agent to submit requests on your behalf. However, we will require written proof of the agent’s permission to do so and verify your identity directly.

RIGHT TO NON_DISCRIMINATION

You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by us for the exercise of any your rights.

 

SHINE THE LIGHT

California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits customers of this website who are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information as defined by the statute to our affiliates and third parties for their own direct marketing purposes. For inquiries regarding our disclosure policy, please contact us.
