What personal information do we collect?

'Personal Information' is defined as information or an opinion relating to an individual which is reasonably identifiable, whether the information is true or not; and whether the information is recorded in a material form or not.

LEAP may collect personal information in order to conduct our business, to provide and market our services and to meet our legal obligations. The type of information we may collect and hold includes (but is not limited to) personal information about:

  • Clients, business associates and potential clients and their employees;
  • Suppliers and their employees; and
  • Prospective employees, employees and contractors.

Personal information may consist of names, addresses, contact details, occupations and other information.

In many cases, if personal information we request is not provided, we may not be able to supply the relevant product or service. LEAP will use its best endeavours to ensure that an individual is advised of the consequences of not providing the requested information. This may include individual collection statements.

LEAP will ensure the individual is advised (via the respective individual collection statements) of the type of organisation that may be provided with the collected information. Organisations to which LEAP discloses information may include insurers, solicitors and mailing houses.

In order to deliver the services you require, LEAP may disclose your personal information to organisations outside of LEAP. Your personal information is only disclosed to these organisations in relation to us providing our services to you. LEAP takes reasonable steps to ensure that these organisations are bound by confidentiality and privacy obligations in relation to the protection of your personal information.

LEAP will only collect and use information for the purpose exposed to the individual at the time of collection (via the respective individual collection statements).

LEAP will ensure that all personal information remains secure from unauthorised access. LEAP will not send your personal information to recipients outside of the United States without obtaining your consent (in some cases consent will be implied).

LEAP will ensure that an equitable and unbiased complaint process is available to all individuals. The Quality Manager will oversee this process.

LEAP will make available to an individual on receipt of a formal request, the personal information collected from that individual. LEAP reserves the right to refuse a request to access personal information, where the identity of the individual making the request is in doubt, or where legal professional privilege exists or where LEAP's rights may be prejudiced.

LEAP will take all reasonable precautions to ensure the personal information it has collected from an individual remains correct and accurate.

LEAP takes reasonable steps to protect personal information held from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.

LEAP may rely on some of the exemptions permitted under the relevant Privacy legislation of the United States. You can always choose not to provide Your personal information to LEAP, but it may mean that we are unable to provide you with the Service.
