Disclaimer of Information Provided to Third Party Services. In some cases we may allow you access to certain third party services by links or otherwise. Any information you provide to these third party services is not User Information and will not be subject to this Policy.
II. How Your User Information May Be Shared With Third Parties.
Leapset will not sell, trade or otherwise disclose the User Information delineated in Section 1 with or to nonaffiliated third parties except as provided below:
Leapset Merchants. From time to time we may provide offers from or otherwise promote particular merchants who request information on Leapset users and Leapset at its reasonable discretion will distribute data to merchants pursuant to such requests.

We do not have any responsibility for the actions of such merchants, and the actions of the merchants are not in our control.

For example, we may disclose the number of users that have been exposed to, or clicked on, advertising banners. This Policy does not limit our use or disclosure of any “scrubbed” information created from User Information in any way, and we reserve the right to use, disclose and sell “scrubbed” information to our partners, advertisers and other third parties at our discretion. “Scrubbed” means Leapset has taken reasonable precautions to protect data de-identified from you from being re-identified to you.
