Information We Collect
Information You Provide to Us
When you place an order with us for our hardware products, the information we collect may include your name, phone number, e-mail address, mailing address, billing address, shipping address, credit card or other payment information and, if applicable, EU VAT number or other tax ID. We will also keep the details of your order and of its fulfilment.
If you create or update a Leap Motion Account, we may collect your username, e-mail address and e-mail preferences, and password for your account. If you wish to purchase applications from the Leap Motion app store service, we will also collect and retain your address, credit card or other payment information, and applicable tax ID so that we +can receive payment. A Leap Motion Account is required to download apps from the Leap Motion app store and may be required to use other Leap Motion services, including the Leap Motion community forum and information and services we offer to developers.
If you experience a problem with your controller or module, you may have the ability to run diagnostic checks, which will save a report with a diagnostic image set on your computer. You may choose to send this report to us, and we may use it to improve our products and services, and if you contact our customer support team they may use it to help diagnose and fix your problem.
When you fill in other forms on our website, enter a contest or promotion sponsored by us, fill out a survey, provide feedback or submissions to our website, or contact us through our website, by sending us an email, phone or other communication, we collect the information you provide.
Information We Collect From our Products and Services
We collect information automatically when you use our products and software, applications from the Leap Motion app store, and our website.
Leap Motion Controller and Software. We collect information when you use the Leap Motion Controller (or a Leap Motion-authorized embedded optical module) and our software that works with it.
When you use your device and your computer is connected to the internet, we collect the device ID of your controller or module, IP address, software version, operating system and hardware configuration. We also collect performance data such as frequency and duration of use, tracking performance, environmental conditions, distances of tracked objects from the device, and other performance data. We also collect technical error data such as the presence of smudges, calibration or synchronization errors or states, or other software or hardware errors or states. This information is tied to your device ID. In order to best provide products and services to you we associate your device IDs to your Leap Motion Account.
If you use our software or tracking modes that we have indicated are “beta” or otherwise for developer and not consumer use, we may also collect non-identifiable infrared hand image data to improve our products and services, including to train and improve our tracking software. We do not tie this data to device IDs, your Leap Motion Account, or any other unique identifiers.
You can choose to stop sharing data with Leap Motion at any time by unchecking “Send Usage Data” in the Leap Motion Control Panel in our software.
Leap Motion-enabled Applications. We collect information regarding applications you have downloaded or accessed from the Leap Motion app store, or that you use with Leap Motion software on your computer. This information may include which apps you have and the frequency and duration of use.
Our Website and Services. We collect information about your use of our website, sub-sites and services. This information includes usage details, page visits, IP addresses, web browser, and information collected through cookies and other tracking technologies. We may combine this information with other information we collect from you, including personal information. The technologies we use for automatic data collection through our website may include:
Pixel Tags and other Technologies. Pages of our website and e-mails we send you may contain small electronic files known as pixel tags (also referred to as clear GIFs, web bugs, web beacons, and single-pixel gifs) that permit us, for example, to count users who have visited those pages or opened an e-mail, and for other related website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain website content and verifying system and server integrity). Pixel tags may also be used to track when you leave the site and to then allow a third-party to serve you an ad on third-party websites.
