Your Choices About Our Use and Disclosure of Your Information

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.

  • Tracking Technologies. You can set your browser to refuse all or some browser cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If you disable or refuse cookies or block the use of other tracking technologies, some parts of the Services may then be inaccessible or not function properly.
  • Location Information. You can choose whether or not to allow the Services to collect and use real-time information about your device’s location through the device’s privacy settings. If you block the use of location information, some parts of the Services may then be inaccessible or not function properly.
  • Promotional Offers. If you do not want us to use your email address or contact information to promote our own or third parties’ products or services as provided herein, you can opt-out by sending us an email stating your request to support@leda.co.
  • Targeted Advertising. If you do not want us to use information that we collect or that you provide to us to deliver advertisements or updates about our Services, you can opt-out by sending us an email stating your request to support@leda.co.
  • Google Analytics. We may also use Google Analytics to help us understand how our customers use the Website - you can read more about how Google uses your Personal Information here: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/. You can also opt-out of Google Analytics: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
  • Please note that we do not alter our Website’s data collection and use practices when we see a “Do Not Track” signal from your browser.
  • If you are a European resident, you may have the right to access Personal Information we hold about you and to ask that your Personal Information be corrected, updated, or deleted. If you would like to exercise this right or find out more information, please contact us at support@leda.co.

Accessing and Correcting 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 support@leda.co 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.

Your California Privacy Rights

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 support@leda.co.

California Consumer Protection Act (“CCPA”)

If you are a resident of the state of California, you may have certain data protection rights that can be exercised either by emailing us at support@leda.co or mailing us at:

Leda Health Corporation
370 Jay St.
Brooklyn, NY 11210

Your rights under the CCPA may include the following:

  • The right to access or delete the information we have on you. Whenever made possible, you can access or request deletion of your personal data.
  • The right to know what personal information is collected, used, shared or sold as to the categories and specific pieces of personal information, and the sources of that information, and types of information we collect, and the intended purposes of that information, and the parties with whom we share it.

Parental Rights and Controls

We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 18 years of age. If you are a parent or guardian of a child from whom we have inadvertently collected Personal Information, you may request the deletion of your child’s Personal Information. In such cases, we will permanently delete your child’s Personal Information within a reasonable period of time so long as doing so would not violate any applicable law, regulation, or order.

If you have any questions about your child’s Personal Information, don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re here to help. We may require you to verify your identity as the parent/guardian of such child before acting on your request.  

For any of the above inquiries or requests, you may contact us at support@leda.co.

Data Security

We have implemented measures designed to secure your Personal Information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure. All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers behind firewalls. Any information you provide to us through your use of the Services will be encrypted using industry standard technology. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Leda or guarantee that your information on the Services may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by a breach of any of our physical, managerial, or technical safeguards.

The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to the Services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure.  Although we do our best to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information transmitted through the Services. Any transmission of Personal Information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures we provide.
