Leda Health offers support, resources, and a means to gather information after a sexual assault.
Leda Health is not a medical service and the information we provide is not a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, treatment, or counseling. If you are injured or require immediate medical attention, please call 911 or visit a hospital. Our User Portal may help you locate a sexual assault nurse examiner.
Leda Health does not offer legal advice to its users. If you have questions about your legal rights or options after a sexual assault, contact local law enforcement and/or an attorney promptly. If you fail to do so, you may lose important legal rights over time.
We cannot guarantee that any information collected through our Early Evidence Kit will be offered, admitted, or relied upon in a court of law. The ultimate admissibility and reliability of information that you collect through Leda Health’s services will be dependent on the specific circumstances of your case and applicable law. To obtain the full benefits of our service, you must carefully read and follow all related instructions. Do not tamper with or improperly alter or use any of the materials included with our services. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Your privacy is a top priority to us at Leda Health. We recognize that it takes strength to share certain sensitive information in the aftermath of a sexual assault. We value your courage and recognize the importance of keeping your information secure.
The Services are not intended for children under 18 years of age, and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 18. If you are under 18, you are not permitted to provide any information to or on the Services (including any information about yourself, such as your name, address, telephone number, email address or any screen name or username you may use).
If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 18, we may delete that information so long as doing so would not violate any applicable law, regulation, or order. We may also delete such Personal Information at the request of your legal parent or guardian. Additionally, if we discover any information pertaining to the abuse of a child under 18, we may report this to appropriate local authorities, and such report may include the disclosure of your Personal Information to third-parties and law enforcement.
Learn more about your rights as a parent or guardian in the section titled Parental Rights and Controls.
When you use our Services, you may be asked or required to provide certain information, some of which may be personally identifiable (“Personal Information”), some of which may be non-identifying, and some of which may be identifying only when viewed in conjunction with other information. Such information that you may provide to us includes but is not limited to the following:
As you use the Services, we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information about your devices, browsing actions and patterns, including details of your use of the Services (such as traffic data, location data, logs and other communication data) and information about your devices and internet connection (including your IP address, operating system and browser type).

As a part of your use of the Services, we may also collect or receive information about you from third parties who we have contracted with as a part of providing the Services. Such third parties may include but are not limited to providers for STI testing, Plan B contraceptives, delivery services, and DNA and/or forensic testing of your samples collected through the Kit and our Services.
We collect your information to be able to provide you the Services. We also collect your information to continuously improve our Services, including estimating our user size and usage patterns. In some instances, we may also collect information to assist in your recollection of events or facts related to a sexual assault or to determine your eligibility to receive our Services.
For example, to further these goals, Leda uses information that we collect about you or that you provide to us in order to:
We may also anonymize your Personal Information (remove any information with which you may be personally identified) (“Anonymized Information”) to assess our Services and generate aggregated, de-aggregated, and statistical data that may enable us to better provide you the Services, for research and educational purposes, and to participate in the sexual assault community as a whole.
Additionally, Leda may use your IP address or other automatically collected information to help diagnose problems with our computer servicer and to administer the Website, App, Portal or other Services.
We may also use information that we collect about you or that you provide to us in any other way we may describe when you provide the information or for any other purposes with your consent.
If you choose to send samples collected through our Kit to our partner lab for testing, your used Kit and related samples may be stored by our partner lab in its facilities. Our partner lab is contractually obligated to not discard or destroy your Kit or its contents without our express consent, which we will obtain from you in the appropriate circumstances. You may request the return of your Kit and related samples by contacting us at email@example.com.
In response to the Protecting DNA Privacy Act enacted in Florida and effective October 1, 2021, Leda has implemented additional procedures to provide Services to survivors who are in Florida or who have experienced sexual assault in Florida. If you are a survivor seeking our Services in Florida or have experienced sexual assault in Florida, we may further use or review information that you submit to us to determine your eligibility to access our Services, to communicate with law enforcement or a prosecutor’s department regarding your case and submitted information, or as otherwise necessary to ensure our compliance with the law.
In the following instances, we may disclose your Personal Information collected through our Services:
Leda does not sell, rent, license, or otherwise provide access to your Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing use unless we receive your express consent to do so.
In some instances, Leda may publicly or privately disclose Anonymized Information related to our Services and its use by Users. Such information may be disclosed or used, for example, to demonstrate how the Services are used, evaluate industry data, to create strategic partnerships, or to evaluate and study data relating to sexual assault.
The Services may contain links to third-party websites and online platforms (“Third-Party Sites”) not owned or operated by Leda. Leda does not control such Third-Party Sites and are not responsible for their content, privacy practices, or use of your information. Information that you provide on public or semi-public venues, including information you share on social networking platforms may be viewable by other Users, users of Third-Party Sites, and/or the public without limitation as to its use by us or by a third party. Our inclusion of third-party links does not imply any endorsement or partnership with such Third-Party Sites or of their owners or operators except as disclosed through our Services. Leda expressly disclaims any and all liability relating to the use and/or disclosure of Personal Information by third parties. Any information submitted by you directly to these Third Party Sites is subject to that third party’s privacy and practices.
We strive to provide you with choices regarding the Personal Information you provide to us. This section describes mechanisms we provide for you to control certain uses and disclosures of your information.
You may access, correct or delete some of your Personal Information by logging into your account and visiting your account profile. When you do so, we’ll validate your request by verifying that you’re signed in to your Leda account. You (or your authorized agent) may also send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to, correct or delete any Personal Information that you have provided to us. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect. Leda will use the best available identifying information it has for you to ensure that the correct person is making the request, and may require you to answer several questions and provide Personal Information in order to meet such necessary verification before your request can be processed. In some cases, such as when you request the return of a Kit you sent to a partner lab, Leda may require a completed affidavit by you. Leda will not facilitate the destruction of the contents of Kits.
If you authorize another person to act as your agent to submit requests on your behalf, we will ask the agent to provide us the written and signed authorization that you provided to the agent, such as a power of attorney, and we will confirm with you that you did provide the authorization, and we will verify your identity.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits users of the Services that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to email@example.com.
