We employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our services (such as maintenance services, database management, web analytics and improvement of our Services' features), to provide the services on our behalf, or to assist us in analyzing how services are used. These third parties have access to your personal information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.

We may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws (such as U.S. Copyright law) or respond to a court order, judicial or other government subpoena, or warrant in the manner required by the requesting entity.
We also reserve the right to disclose information that we believe, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to take precautions against liability; protect us from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses; to investigate and defend ourselves against third-party claims or allegations; to assist government enforcement agencies; to protect the security or integrity of the Services or Site; enforce our Terms of Service; or to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of us, our users, or others.

Account Deletion is something that is requested by the user to our support team. The support team uses account deletion tools in order to remove unwanted accounts and the data within them.
In order to request an account to be deleted from our database users will need to send a request to support@leetcode in which includes the following details to verify the account and remove it:
1. LeetCode username
2. Associated email address
3. Consenting to losing all data on your LeetCode account
Once we receive this information we will delete all data from that user and confirm this with the user once it is official. Once removed the user will no longer have access to past data.
