For user account registration purposes, Leangap stores only your name and email. Your name and email is private and never shared with other users or any third parties. This data is stored for a period of time in order to facilitate logins. We take pride in not storing more data than is necessary for you to use this site.

We may request information from you, eg Short Response Questions that is necessary to operate Leangap. If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.

When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.

You can request an account deletion in your Account Settings to delete all your information that we store. Note that we may have legitimate interest to retain some of your data (See section 3).

We care deeply about security and use industry standard methods for securing passwords and implement strong practises to prevent unauthorised data access.

If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.

If you optionally link your Facebook account, we will store a token to let you sign into the site.
