Collection of your Personal Information

LEO Near Miss only collects personally identifiable information, such as names, e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, and street addresses, if you choose to provide it during the near-miss report submission process or while corresponding with LEO Near Miss staff.

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by all websites, including LEO Near Miss. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is briefly used by LEO Near Miss primarily for security reasons, but also to maintain the quality of the service and provide general statistics regarding use of the LEO Near Miss website. This information is purged from all records shortly after reports are submitted.

Use of your Personal Information

If you choose to provide LEO Near Miss with personally identifiable information during the near-miss report submission process, such as an email address, name, and/or telephone number, it will only be used by LEO Near Miss staff or consultants for the purpose of asking clarification or follow-up questions about the submitted report. Once the report has cleared the review process and is ready for publication on the website, all personally identifiable information in the report will be permanently deleted.

If you choose to provide personally identifiable information to LEO Near Miss while providing feedback, requesting information, or requesting services, that information will only be used to reply to your correspondence or to deliver the services you have requested. LEO Near Miss does not sell, rent, lease, or otherwise provide personally identifiable information to third parties.
