All of your personal information that we keep will continue to be subject to the terms of this Privacy Notice to which you have previously agreed.

Links

We do not post links to third party websites or services in the Services. We are not responsible or liable for any content, advertising, products, or other materials on or available from third party websites or for any privacy or other practices of the third parties operating those websites.

Users Outside Of The United States

The Services are hosted in the United States and are governed by United States law. If you are using the Services from outside the United States, please be aware that your personal information may be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States where our servers are located and our central database is operated. The data protection and other laws of the United States and other countries might not be as comprehensive as those in your country.

How We Protect Your Personal Information

We take reasonable steps to maintain the security of your personal information; however, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit or provide to us, so you do so at your own risk.

California Privacy Rights

Shine the Light. If you are a California resident who provides personal information in obtaining products or services for personal, family or household use, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 ("Shine the Light Law") permits you to request in writing and obtain from us, once per calendar year, data about the personal information we shared, if any, with other third parties for their own direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please contact us at support@joinleland.com and write "Request for California Privacy Data" for the subject of your message. We will send you a reply e-mail within 30 days containing the requested data once we confirm your request. Not all of the shared personal information is covered by the Shine the Light Law requirements and therefore only personal information which is covered will be included in our response.

Consumer Rights Notice. Under California Civil Code Section 1789.3, Leland is required to provide California residents with the following specific consumer rights information:

  • This website is owned and operated by Leland Inc.

  • Unless otherwise expressly stated, this website is provided without charge.

To file a complaint regarding this website or to receive further information regarding use of this website, please contact us via email at support@joinleland.com or send us a letter at the mailing address listed below.

Do Not Track. The Services currently do not respond to "Do Not Track" ("DNT") signals and operates as described in this Privacy Notice whether or not a DNT signal is received. If we do respond to DNT signals in the future, we will update this Privacy Notice to describe how we do so.

General Data Protection Regulation

"Personal Data" has the meaning given in the General Data Protection Regulation. You may have certain rights regarding the personal information we have about you if your Personal Data is protected by the General Data Protection Regulation. In some circumstances, you may have the right to:

  • Access the Personal Data we have about you

  • Correct the Personal Data we have about you

  • Restrict the processing of your Personal Data

  • Have your Personal Data deleted (i.e. the "right to be forgotten")

  • Object to the processing of your Personal Data

  • Not be subject to automated decision-making

  • Take your Personal Data somewhere else (i.e. the right to portability)

You may contact us at support@joinleland.com to make any of these requests. We may require you to provide proof of your identity before complying with your request. There may be situations where we are not required to comply with your request and we will let you know if one of those situations arises.

Our lawful basis for processing your personal information is typically going to be performance of a contract with you, but we also may process your personal information because you granted us consent to do so, because of a legal obligation, or because we have a legitimate interest in doing so.

We hope that you don't ever have an issue with the way that we handle your Personal Data, but if you do, contact us at support@joinleland.com to let us know so that we can make it right. If you're ever not happy with the way that we handle your request, you can file a complaint with your local supervisory authority.

Children's Privacy

We do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13 ("Child" or "Children"), nor do we solicit personal information from Children. If you are a Child, please do not send any personal information about yourself to us. If you are the parent or legal guardian of a Child, we urge you to instruct your Child to never give out their real names, address, phone numbers, or any other personal information on the Internet without your permission.
