Privacy

This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices of Leo Ji and Leo Ji Inc., the owner and operator of these websites, and known as “we”. The types of information that we collect fall under two general categories: personally identifiable information (PII) and non-personally identifiable information (NPII).

PII consists of any information which can be used to specifically identify you as an individual, whereas NPII consists of information that does not reveal your identity. The following sections describe how your PII and NPII are collected by us, and how we use such information.

How we collect and use information

Log Files

A log file is a file that lists actions that have occurred. For example, web servers maintain log files listing every request made to the server. With log file analysis tools, it is possible to get a good idea of where visitors are coming from, how often they return, and how they navigate through a site. Using cookies enables website owners and operators to log even more detailed information about how individual users are accessing a site.

Any time you visit any of our website, our servers automatically gather information from your browser such as the following:

  1. Your IP addresses;
  2. Browser type;
  3. Internet service provider (ISP);
  4. Referring and exit pages;
  5. Platform type;
  6. The date and time you visit; and
  7. The number of Hits (total number of times our site has been visited).

Log files are used to analyze trends, administer the site, prevent fraud, track total movement, and gather broad demographic information. For example, we may log your IP address for system administration purposes.

IP addresses are logged to track a user’s session. This gives us an idea of which parts of our site users are visiting. This information is available to us and our service providers (such as our hosting providers) for administrative and technical purposes and to fulfil agreements between us and our service providers.

We do not share our log files for marketing or commercial purposes.

Cookies

A cookie is a small string of text stored on a user's computer by a web browser. Cookies contain bits of information such as user preferences, shopping cart contents, and the identifier for a server-based session, or other data used by websites. It is sent as an HTTP header by a web server to a web client (usually a browser) and then sent back unchanged by the client each time he or she accesses that server. A cookie can be used for authenticating, session tracking and maintaining specific information about users, such as site preferences.

We use cookies to keep track of some types of information while you are visiting our website or using our services. Cookies allow us to count the number of visitors to our website and distinguish repeat visitors from new visitors. They also allow us to save user preferences and track user trends.

We rely on cookies for the proper operation of our website. If your browser is set to reject all cookies, the website may not function properly. We do not link the cookies to any PII.

Disclosure of your information to third parties

To provide services

We may share your information, including information you provide to us, with our third-party service providers in order to operate the website and provide associated services. For example, we may share (or we may allow access to) information about your accessing our website, such as browsing analytics, with our website hosting and content delivery service providers to enable them to continue to deliver our website and improve their services for us.

To protect abuse victims

Notwithstanding any other provision of this privacy statement, our Terms of Use, or any other legal agreement you may have with us, we reserve the right, but have no obligation, to disclose any information (including information you provide to us or we collect by other means), if in our sole opinion, we suspect (or have reason to suspect) that the information involves a party who may be the victim of abuse in any form.

Abuse may include, without limitation, elder abuse, child abuse, spousal abuse, neglect, or domestic violence. Information may be disclosed to authorities that we, in our sole discretion, deem appropriate to handle such disclosure. Appropriate authorities may include, without limitation, law enforcement agencies, child protection agencies, or court officials. You hereby acknowledge and agree that we may to make such disclosure.

You agree that we may disclose information you provide if required to do so by law, at the request of a third party, or if we, in our sole discretion, believe that disclosure is reasonable to:

  1. comply with the law, requests or orders from law enforcement, or any legal process (whether or not such disclosure is required by applicable law);
  2. protect or defend Owner’s, or a third party’s, rights or property; or
  3. protect someone’s health or safety, such as when harm or violence against any person (including you) is threatened.

Security

We have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information stored in our databases or otherwise under our control.

We will exercise reasonable care in providing secure transmission of information between your computer and our servers, but given that no information transmitted over the Internet can be guaranteed 100% secure, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to us over the Internet and hence accept no liability for any unintentional disclosure.
