International Data Use


The security of your personal information is important to Leapers. In order to protect the confidentiality of your personal information, Leapers has put in place a number of operational functions. For example, when you enter sensitive information (such as credit card information), we encrypt that information using industry standard TLS (Transport Layer Security). TLS codes the information transferred between you and the server, rendering it unreadable to anyone trying to intercept the information. However, perfect security on the Internet does not exist, and Leapers does not warrant that its website is impenetrable or invulnerable to hackers.


Please be aware that this website may contain links to other sites that are covered by their own privacy policies. Leapers is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites and we encourage our users to be aware when you leave our site. We recommend that our users read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information.
