We collect this information about you by placing cookies on our Sites. Please refer to the section Cookies and Other Technologies below for more details.


Information we obtain from third-party service providers. We may obtain demographic data from a third-party service provider to use for marketing analytics.

When you visit or interact with our pages on those platforms, the platform provider’s privacy notice applies.


Our Sites may include interfaces that allow you to connect with SNS. If you connect to a SNS through our Sites, you authorize us to access, use and store the information that you agreed the SNS could provide to us based on your settings on that SNS. We will access, use and store that information in accordance with this Privacy Notice. You can revoke our future access to the information you provide to us through a SNS at any time by amending the appropriate settings within your account settings on the applicable SNS.

Cookies and Other Technologies


How We Use Tracking Technologies

In an ongoing effort to improve the Sites and our services, we automatically collect certain information when you visit the Sites and/or use the services. We may automatically collect information using the following automatic data collection technologies:


  • Cookies. A “cookie” is a text file that Sites send to a visitor’s computer or other internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. Such information includes without limitation, your IP address, Internet service provider, device identifier, browser type and language, referring and exit pages and URLs, date and time, amount of time spent on particular pages, what sections of the Sites you visit, number of links you click while on the Sites, search terms, operating system, website traffic and related statistics, keywords, key word searches and/or other data concerning your use of the Sites and/or the services. By virtue of their operation, cookies fall under the following categories:
    • Strictly Necessary Cookies. These cookies are required for the operation of our Sites. These cookies cannot be switched off. You can set your browser to block these cookies, but as a result, some parts of our Sites will not work as designed.
    • Functionality Cookie. These cookies allow our Sites to remember choices you make when you use our Sites. The purpose of these cookies is to provide you with a more personal experience and to avoid you from having to re-select your preferences every time you visit our Sites.
    • Analytics and Performance Cookies. These cookies are used to collect information about traffic to our Sites and how users use our Sites. The information gathered may include the number of visitors to our Sites, the Sites that referred them to our Sites, the pages they visited on our Sites, what time of day they visited our Sites, whether they have visited our Sites before, and other similar information. We use this information to help operate our Sites more efficiently, to gather demographic information and to monitor the level of activity on our Sites.
  • JavaScript Tags. JavaScript tags, also known as pixels, trigger a sequence of events that includes viewing a first-party cookie (or setting that cookie if it does not already exist). We may use JavaScript tags to help us tailor and optimize our Sites and provide you relevant LEO advertisements outside of our Sites. The information we collect using pixel tags is not linked to our users’ personal information.
  • Web beacons. Web beacons, also known as “clear gif” technology, are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web site users. Unlike cookies, which can be stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We may use web beacons to help us manage information on the Sites by tracking what information is effective.


We also may use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party Sites or other online services (behavioral tracking). The information we collect automatically is statistical data and may not include personal information, or we may maintain it or associate it with personal information we collect in other ways or receive from third parties.


Information on Google Analytics

We may use Google Analytics, a vendor’s service that uses cookies, web beacons, pixels, and/or similar technology, to collect and store information about you. You can learn more about Google Analytics’ privacy policy and ways to opt out from Google Analytics tracking at For more information on the use of personal data by Google Inc. please visit the Google privacy policy.


Disabling Cookies

You may disable or delete browser cookies through your browser settings. Cookies generally are easy to disable or delete, but the method varies between browsers. If you disable or delete cookies, or if you are running third-party software that intercepts or deletes cookies, please note that some parts of our Sites may not work properly.

  • Blocking cookies in your browser. Most browsers let you remove or reject cookies. To do this, follow the instructions in your browser settings. Many browsers accept cookies by default until you change your settings. For more information about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your device and how to manage and delete them, visit
  • Blocking advertising ID use in your mobile settings. Your mobile device settings may provide functionality to limit use of the advertising ID associated with your mobile device for interest-based advertising purposes.
  • Advertising industry opt-out tools. You can also use these opt-out options to limit use of your information for interest-based advertising by participating companies:

More About Your Privacy


External Sites

The Sites may contain links to other Sites, including, but not limited to, investor relations sites, job applicant information gathering, assessment, and testing sites. These third-party sites have their own measures to secure and protect your information. This Privacy Notice and related Terms of Use do not apply to these third-party sites.



We take commercially reasonable steps to protect your information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction.


Please understand, however, that no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that the information that you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to and from us over the Internet. In particular, email sent to or from the Sites may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email. Therefore, you acknowledge and agree that we assume no liability regarding the theft, loss, alteration, or misuse of personal or other information or content, including, without limitation, such information that has been provided to third parties or other users, or with regards to the failure of a third party to abide by the agreement between us and such third party.
