Your privacy is critically important to us. At Compass we have a few fundamental principles:
Website VisitorsLike most website operators, Compass collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Compass's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Compass's visitors use its website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying InformationCertain visitors to Compass's websites choose to interact with Compass in ways that require Compass to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Compass gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, a visitor may complete a form which is transmitted by e-mail to Compass. In each case, Compass collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to full fill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Compass. Compass does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying InformationCompass discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Compass's behalf or to provide services available at Compass's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using Compass's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Compass will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, Compass discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Compass believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Compass, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Compass website and have supplied your email address, Compass may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Compass and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to print it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Compass takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
