Privacy Policy

Scientific Botanical Leasing and related entities are committed to maintaining the confidentiality, integrity and security of personal information of our current and prospective clients. We consider customer privacy to be fundamental to our relationship with clients. It is therefore our policy to respect the privacy of current, former, and future clients and to protect personal information entrusted to us. This policy describes the steps we have taken to safeguard your information and what client information we may be compelled to share with others. We are proud of our privacy practices and want you to know how we protect information used to provide you with service. You do not have to contact us to benefit from our privacy protections; they apply automatically to all of our clients.
