Privacy Policy

1. INTRODUCTION 

Welcome to the family of websites, including http://leaf.trade, provided by Leaf Trade Inc. (“Leaf Trade”, “we”, “us”, or “our”). This Privacy Policy applies to each website where it is posted or provided (“Website” or collectively, the “Sites”) and describes the information we gather from you when you use the Sites, mobile applications, and related services (together, the “Services”) and how we use, process, and disclose that information. This Privacy Policy applies only to the Sites, not to any other third-party sites that may be accessible from the Sites. 

We may change the terms of this Privacy Policy from time to time. By continuing to use any of the Sites and/or the Services or submitting personal information through the Sites or the Services, you expressly consent and agree to the transfer of your personal data to our servers for our collection, use, and disclosure in accordance with this Privacy Policy. 

We process your information and personal information only to the extent necessary for the performance of our obligations to you, which is in providing the Sites and Services to you under our Terms of Service at: https://app.leaf.trade/tos/. We set out below the types of information and personal information that we collect and how we use it. Except as set forth in this Privacy Policy, your personal information will not be used for any other purpose without your consent. We will not actively collect personal information for the purpose of sale to third parties or marketing in a way that specifically identifies the individual. In other words, we don’t sell customer lists. You may withdraw your consent to our processing of your personal information at any time. However, withdrawing consent may result in your inability to continue using the Sites and/or the Services. 

2. INFORMATION WE COLLECT 

When you create an account, register and/or use the Services, we collect certain information from you, which may include, but is not limited to, your: name; contact information such as your address, email address, and phone number; demographics information such as your gender and location; product descriptions, photographs, pricing information, and laboratory results; and all other information, such as reviews, content, and bio, you may provide us. This information is collected for reasons of compliance, verification of authorized licenses/businesses/accounts/users, and other general information that’s provided voluntarily by both sellers and buyers for their mutual benefit as it relates to conducting a transaction. 

We automatically collect information about how you use our services, for example, pages you have viewed. We also collect certain technical information about your device including your Internet protocol address, geo-location information, metadata, marketing communications, statistics, your browser type, language and identifying information, your operating system and application version, device types, device model and manufacturer, device identifiers, and your device operating system type and version. This information is collected to continuously improve the Sites and Services for your experience and added value to you. 

If you send us an e-mail message, you provide us with your e-mail address. If you make a purchase via the Sites or through use of the Services, we may collect your credit card number and the other information necessary to provide the Services. We may also collect information submitted by you on the name and date of events specific to a particular activity, customer, recipient, your address book and address lists, products, your profile and customization data, photographs, and other information submitted by you to the Sites. This information is collected to continuously improve the Sites and Services for your experience and added value to you. 

We do not currently respond to “do not track” signals or other mechanisms that might enable an opt-out of tracking on our Site. 

Cookies 

We may also use cookies, web beacons, and URL information to gather information regarding the date and time of your visit and the information for which you searched and which you viewed. Cookies are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive or other storage media while you are viewing a website. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which usually stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our Site. Web beacons are digital images that are used to log information on the Services or in our emails. We use web beacons to manage cookies, count visits, and to learn what marketing works and what does not. We also use web beacons to tell if you open or act on our emails. 

Third-Party Analytics 

Others, including third-party analytics service providers and advertising partners may also collect personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across different Sites when you use the Services, including as described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy does not apply to, and we are not responsible for, those other parties. Third-party analytics services may use cookies and web beacons through the Sites and platform device identifiers and software agents on and through our mobile services to provide us with information about how you use and interact with the Sites. Please contact us at Legal@LeafTrade.com for a list of third-party service providers. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of these third parties to learn about your choices about information they collect from you. 

Google Analytics 

This site may use Google Analytics tools and advertising features. Google Analytics Advertising Features allow features in Analytics that aren’t available through standard implementations. 

Advertising features include: 

  • Remarketing with Google Analytics 
  • Google Display Network Impression Reporting 
  • Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting 
  • Integrated services that require Google Analytics to collect data via advertising cookies and anonymous identifiers 

The Advertising Features enable Google Analytics to collect data about website traffic via Google advertising cookies and anonymous identifiers, in addition to data collected through a standard Google Analytics implementation. The data is sent to Google Analytics (for example, via the Google Analytics tracking code, Google Analytics SDK, or the Measurement Protocol) for analysis and reporting. Your use of the Sites will not facilitate the merging of personally identifiable information with non-personally identifiable information collected through any Google advertising product or feature unless you have robust notice of, and the user’s prior affirmative (i.e., opt-in) consent to, that merger. For information about Google’s advertising cookies and anonymous identifiers, please visit the following resources: http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/types/ and https://www.google.com/policies/privacy /key-terms/#toc-terms-identifier. 

Visitors can opt-out of the Google Analytics Advertising Features used on this website, including through Ads Settings, Ad Settings for mobile apps, or any other available means (for example, the NAI’s consumer opt-out) by using Google Analytics’ currently available opt-outs for the web at: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/. 

Geographic Restrictions 

The Sites are intended to be accessed and used by viewers in the United States of America only. If users access the Sites from other jurisdictions, they do so giving express consent to perform any data collection, sharing and usage that takes place on any site, app, email publication or other property as a consequence of your use of the Sites, Services and/or Google products; and you acknowledge and agree that, as an end user, you have been provided with clear and comprehensive information about, and consent to, the storing and accessing of cookies or other information on the end user’s device where such activity occurs in connection with a product to which this policy applies. 

You represent and warrant that you will not provide or disclose to us any personal information that is subject to the European Union General Data Protection Regulation or to any other data privacy laws or regulations outside the United States (“Restricted Data”) or otherwise use the Sites or the Services to upload, store or process Restricted Data. If you provide us with any Restricted Data or uses the Sites or Services to upload, store or process Restricted Data, then you shall indemnify and hold harmless Leaf Trade and its personnel against all fines, penalties, costs, fees, expenses, damages and liabilities, including attorney fees and any other fees or defense costs, associated with any data subject, private party or government claim, investigation, or enforcement proceeding, relating to or arising from any Restricted Data. This indemnification is intended to apply to the fullest extent allowed by law, regardless of the grounds or nature of any claim, investigation, enforcement proceeding, fine, penalty, liability, or damages asserted, including, without limitation, to claims, liability or damages based on principles of contract, negligence or other tort, fiduciary duty, warranty, indemnity, statute or common law. This indemnification will also apply after termination of this Agreement. 

3. RETENTION 

We will keep your personal information only for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes for which personal information is collected as stated herein; for as long as is necessary for the performance of the contract between you and us, if any; and to comply with legal and statutory obligations, such as in tax, trade and corporate laws. When we no longer need your personal information for our purposes, we will destroy, delete or erase that personal information or convert it into an anonymous form. 

4. SHARING OF YOUR INFORMATION 

The Services offered by Leaf Trade may allow you to connect and share your actions, comments, content, profile, and information publicly or with other people. You may control some of the categories of personal and Included Entity information shared. Please be mindful of your own privacy needs as you choose who to connect with and what to share and make available on the Sites. We cannot control the privacy or security of information you choose to make available on the Sites or share with others. 

5. HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION 

Leaf Trade generally may use your information to: 

  • Facilitate the creation of and secure your account to use the Services and on the Sites; 
  • Identify you as a user in our system; 
  • Provide, personalize, and improve the Sites and the Services; 
  • Communicate with you about your use of the Sites and the Services; 
  • Develop new products and services; 
  • Customize your experience and the advertising you view and recommend content; 
  • Fulfill your requests and facilitate the transmission of orders and communications between users; 
  • Send newsletters, surveys, offers and promotional materials related to the Sites and the Services and for other marketing purposes of Leaf Trade; 
  • Protect, investigate, and prevent potentially fraudulent, unauthorized, or illegal activities; 
  • Protect our rights and the rights of other users; and 
  • As otherwise described in this Privacy Policy or in notices we provide to you. 

We may also use your information to verify your geographic location. We may use your geographic location data to personalize the Sites and the Services, to recommend content, or determine whether the information you have requested is available in your location. 

6. HOW WE DISCLOSE YOUR INFORMATION 

We may share your information as follows: 

  • We may share your personal or Included Entity information with your consent or at your direction. 
  • We may also share your information with others who perform services on our behalf. 
  • We may disclose your information if we believe we are required to do so by law, or to comply with a court order, judicial or other government subpoena, or warrant. 
  • We also may disclose your information if we believe doing so is appropriate or necessary to prevent any liability, fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses; to protect Leaf Trade, the Sites, and the Services; to enforce our Terms and Conditions; or to protect any rights, property, or personal safety of Leaf Trade or others at our discretion. 
  • In the event that Leaf Trade is or may be acquired by or merged with another company or involved in any other business deal (or negotiation of a business deal) involving sale or transfer of all or part of our business or assets, we may transfer or assign your information as part of or in connection with the transaction. In the event of insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership, information may be transferred as a business asset. 

We may also share anonymized aggregated and disaggregated data with our partners, advertisers, and other third parties. 

We will not disclose or transfer your personal information to third parties without your permission, except as specified in this Privacy Policy (see further Important Exceptions below). 

As at the date of this Privacy Policy, we share personal information about you in respect of the Sites or Services only with our service providers and partners which include website hosting, cloud service providers, analytics providers, email marketing providers and payment processors. Our service providers may host data worldwide and accordingly your personal information may be available to governments worldwide under a lawful order, irrespective of the safeguards we have put in place for the protection of your personal information. 

From time to time we may employ third parties to help us improve the Sites and/or the Services. These third parties may have limited access to databases of user information solely for the purpose of helping us to improve the Sites and/or the Services and they will be subject to contractual restrictions prohibiting them from using the information about users or third parties for any other purpose. 

Important Exceptions: We may disclose your personal information to third parties without your consent if we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other websites, other users of the Service, or anyone else (including the rights or property of anyone else) that could be harmed by such activities. We may disclose your personal information when we believe in good faith that such disclosure is required by and in accordance with the law. 

We may also disclose your personal information in connection with a corporate re-organization, a merger or amalgamation with another entity, a sale of all or a substantial portion of our assets or stock, including any due diligence exercise carried out in relation to the same, provided that the information disclosed continues to be used for the purposes permitted by this Privacy Policy by the entity acquiring the information. 

7. THIRD-PARTY ADVERTISERS 

We may permit advertisements to be delivered to you by third-party Internet advertising companies (also called ad networks or network advertisers). These companies may use cookies, web beacons, platform device identifiers, software agents, and other technologies to collect non-personally identifiable information about your visits over time on the Sites and the Service and across other websites to deliver advertisements to you targeted to your interests, measure their effectiveness and personalize advertising content, and to understand the usage and visitation of the Sites and the Services and the other applications and websites tracked by these advertising companies. We do not have access to or control over cookies, web beacons, platform device identifiers, software agents, or other technologies that they may use. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of third-party advertisers. Please contact us at Legal@LeafTrade.com for a list of third-party service advertisers. You should check the privacy policy of the third-party advertiser to determine how it handles information it separately collects from you. 

8. SECURITY 

Leaf Trade takes commercially reasonable technical, organizational, contractual, administrative, and physical security steps to help protect your information and personal information against loss, misuse and unauthorized access, or disclosure at a level of security appropriate to the risk. No company can fully prevent security risks, however. While we strive to protect your personal and Included Entity information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. To help protect yourself and your information, choose a unique password for the Sites and the Services and do not use a password on the Sites or the Services that you would use on any other website or online service. 

9. DISPUTE RESOLUTION 

If you believe that Leaf Trade has not adhered to this Privacy Policy, please contact Leaf Trade by e-mail at Legal@LeafTrade.com. We will do our best to address your concerns. If you feel that your complaint has been addressed incompletely, we invite you to let us know for further investigation. 

10. INFORMATION CHOICES 

You may opt out of receiving promotional emails from Leaf Trade and/or its users by following the instructions in those emails or by reviewing the settings in your account. If you opt out, we may still send you non-promotional emails, such as emails about your accounts or our ongoing business relations. You may also send requests about your personal or Included Entity information by emailing Legal@LeafTrade.com. Please note that we will review such requests on a case-by-case basis and make all determinations in our sole and absolute discretion. 

When you visit the Sites, we and others give you the following choices about use of mechanisms for tracking, including tracking of your online activities over time and across different websites and online services by third parties. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove cookies and to reject cookies from the Sites or from third parties. If you choose to remove cookies or reject cookies, this could affect certain features or services of the Sites. In addition to the steps discussed above, to opt-out of Google Analytics web tracking for certain browsers, you can download Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on. You may opt out of other cookies that may be present on the Sites by following the directions of our third-party service providers. You can also choose to opt-out of use of cookies by some of our third-party advertising partners to deliver ads tailored to your profile and preferences. Please contact us at Legal@LeafTrade.com for a list of third-party service providers and advertisers. However, while we and others give you choices as described in this policy, there are many ways in which web browser signals and other similar mechanisms can indicate your choice to disable tracking, and the Sites may not be aware of or honor every mechanism. 

You may have the right to know what personal or Included Entity information Leaf Trade has about you and to correct any inaccuracies. Please direct any such requests by email to Legal@LeafTrade.com. 

In certain jurisdictions where we may operate, you may have the right under applicable law to: obtain confirmation that we hold personal information about you, request access to and receive information about the personal information we maintain about you, receive copies of the personal information we maintain about you, update and correct inaccuracies in your personal information, object to or restrict the processing of your personal information, under certain circumstances, provide instructions for the use of your personal information after death, request to have deleted any personal information collected at the time you qualified as a minor under applicable law, have your personal information blocked, anonymized or deleted, as appropriate; and withdraw any consent you previously provided to us regarding the use and processing of your personal information. 

11. CHILDREN 

The Sites are not intended for children under the age of 18. We will not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 18 and do not target our Sites or Services to children under 18. We encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children’s Internet usage and to help enforce our Privacy Policy. If you have any reason to believe that any child under the age of 18 has provided personal information to us through the Sites, please contact us, and we will endeavor to delete that information from our databases. 

Children Under 13 

We comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). Children under the age of 13 are not permitted to use the Sites or Services we provide. However, we have no way of distinguishing the age of individuals who access our Sites or Services, and so we carry out the same Privacy Policy for all users for which age is unknown. If a child, including any child under the age of 13, has provided us with personally-identifying information without parental or guardian consent, the parent or guardian should contact us to remove the information and opt out of promotional opportunities. Additionally, if you have any reason to believe that any child under the age of 13 has provided personal information to us through the Sites, please contact us, and we will endeavor to delete that information from our databases. 

12. YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS 

If you are a resident of the state of California, the following rights are available to you under the California Consumer Privacy Act. 

Right to access 

You have the right to request that we disclose the categories of personal information collected, the categories of sources from which personal information is collected, the business or commercial purpose for collection, the categories of third parties with which we share personal information, and the specific pieces of personal information that we have about you. You also have the right to request that we provide your personal information to you in a readily useable format. 

Right to request deletion 

You have the right to request that we delete personal information that we collected from you. Note, however, that certain requests to delete personal information may be denied if we are required to retain the information as a matter of law, the information is necessary for detecting security incidents, exercising free speech, protecting or defending against legal claims, or for internal uses reasonably aligned with consumer expectations, including transaction data. 

Right to non-discrimination 

You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by us for exercise of these privacy rights. We do not offer financial incentives related to the provision of data. 

Authorized agent 

You have the right to designate an authorized agent to make these requests on your behalf. 

To exercise any of these rights, please contact us at +1-888-507-7747 or Legal@LeafTrade.com. We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. 

13. CHANGES AND UPDATES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY 

As noted above, from time to time, we may revise the Privacy Policy. To help you stay current of any changes, we note the date the Privacy Policy was last updated below. We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time and without notice, and to retroactively apply the modified policy to information already collected. 

14. LEAF TRADE CONTACT INFORMATION 

Please contact Leaf Trade with any questions or comments about this Privacy Policy, your information, our third-party disclosure practices, or your consent choices.
