This privacy policy (this "Policy") describes the practices of NuCaptcha Inc. ("Leap") with respect to its collection, use, storage and disclosure of personal information from its customers and from users of its various services, all as set out below.

1. Introduction

Leap respects and upholds individual's right to privacy and the protection of personal information.

The Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (Canada), or similar privacy legislation applicable in your Province ("Applicable Privacy Legislation"), regulates the way private sector organizations operating in Canada may collect, use, keep, secure and disclose personal information. "Personal information" means all information about an identifiable individual.

As required by Applicable Privacy Legislation, Leap has appointed a Privacy Officer who is responsible for compliance with this Privacy Policy and Applicable Privacy Legislation. Information on how to contact the Privacy Officer can be found below.

2. Collection and Use of Personal Information

Leap offers a variety of services (the "Services") including public access to the Leap website (the "Website") and access to Leap's web-enabled security platform software applications (the "Software").
