Privacy Policy


LeakSignal Inc. (“LeakSignal”) is committed to protecting the privacy and security of the data of its website visitors. This Privacy Policy applies to information we collect when you use our website (the “Site”) and LeakSignal’s other online products and services (together with the Site, the “Services”). We want you to understand how we collect and use information from our Services, so you can interact with LeakSignal with confidence. By using LeakSignal’s Services, you accept and agree to the practices this Privacy Policy describes.

LeakSignal is a U.S.-based company with domestic and international business clients. As a result, information that we collect on our Site, including personal information, may be transferred to our U.S. offices to permit us to comply with our legal and contractual obligations, to provide information and services to prospective and current clients, and to perform related business activities. In addition, we may work with third-party service providers in the U.S. and in other countries to support our business activities. Thus, personal information may be transferred to, stored on servers in, and accessed from the United States and countries other than the country in which the information was initially collected. In all such instances, we use, transfer, and disclose personal information solely for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.

Information Collection Not Covered by this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy also does not apply to personal information that LeakSignal collects and uses for employment-related purposes, whether through this Site or through a website operated on our behalf by a third-party service provider.

When you access the Services, you are doing so in a business capacity as a representative of your company, and your interactions with the Client Site are governed by our relationship agreement with your company.

Information We Collect From and About You

“Personal Information” means any information from or about a person that either identifies that person directly or that makes that person identifiable when it is combined with other information from or about that person from any source. Personal Information stops being personal information when it has been aggregated, deidentified, or otherwise anonymized sufficiently that the individual is no longer identified or identifiable using reasonable efforts, resources, and technology. “Sensitive Personal Information” is Personal Information that reveals racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership; genetic and biometric data if used for identification purposes; data about health, sex life, or sexual orientation; and data about criminal convictions or offenses.

When you use our Services, we may collect and use Personal Information about you, as well as other information.

More specifically, when you use our Services, we may collect the following information:

Information that You Provide to Us Voluntarily

If you choose to communicate with us through an online form, by sending us an email, by requesting additional information, by registering for one of our events, by purchasing goods or services from us, or by otherwise contacting us, we will collect whatever information, including personal information, that you choose to provide us with. We will combine that information with other information that we collect from and about you as described in this Privacy Policy.

Information that We Collect Automatically When You Visit Our Website

How We Use Cookies

A “cookie” is a small computer file that is sent to your computer when you visit a website. When you visit the website again, the cookie allows that site to recognize your browser. Cookies may store user preferences and other information. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. Keep in mind, however, that some website features or services may not function properly without cookies.

“Do Not Track” Requests

LeakSignal’s Services currently do not respond to “do not track” or similar signals.

Use of Your Information

We use the information we collect from you primarily to enable us to provide our Services to you in the best possible manner. In addition, your information may be used for the following purposes:

Why We Collect Information From and About You

LeakSignal does not collect, use, share, or disclose your personal information for anything other than the following lawful purposes:

To establish and maintain contractual relationships with our clients

To comply with our legal obligations:

To fulfill our other legitimate interests to the extent that they are not overridden by individual interests, fundamental rights, or freedoms:

To the greatest extent possible, we will use aggregated, deidentified, or otherwise anonymized data to accomplish these purposes, but if we do not, or if we combine it with Personal Information we will continue to treat personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.


We use physical, electronic, and administrative procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect on our Services. These procedures include, but are not limited to, firewalls, encryption, intrusion detection, and Services monitoring. We also limit access to any Personal Information we receive to employees who need access to that information in order to do their jobs. However, no data protection procedures are entirely infallible. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee that it will be 100% secure. Your transmission of your data to our Services thus is done entirely at your own risk.

Sharing Your Information
