Compile - Privacy

This Privacy Policy describes the information that Compile Inc. and its affiliates (“Compile”) collects about you, how we use and protect this information, and the choices you can make about how we use this information. This policy applies to information, including any information that can be used to identify an individual (“Personal Information”), collected about you by Compile in different methods, including via the website. Your privacy matters to us, so please get to know our privacy practices and contact us with any questions.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

Compile may collect information about you from a variety of sources. We may collect information about you that you provide directly such as when you establish a user account with us and give us your name, email address etc. We may also collect information when you use our products or services, such as the search queries you use, how you use the services we provide, and the types of requests you make.

We use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect Compile and our users. We also use this information to offer you tailored content – like giving you more relevant search results and reports. When you contact Compile, we may keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements.

We use information collected from cookies and other technologies to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services. We will ask for your consent before using information for a purpose other than those that are set out in this Privacy Policy.

Compile processes personal information on our servers in many countries around the world. We may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where you live.

Disclosure of Personal Information

We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Compile when we have your consent to do so, other than as provided herein.

Personal Information may also be disclosed in limited circumstances, including, but not limited to, meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request, enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations, detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, to protect and defend the rights or property of Compile, or in an emergency threatening an individual's life, health, or security.

We reserve the right to disclose your personal information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site.

We rely on third-party service providers to perform a variety of services on our behalf, such as hosting our website. In so doing, we may need to share your Personal Information with them. We provide our service providers with only the Personal Information they need to perform their services and we require that they protect this information and not use it for any other purpose. We may supplement your personal information with information from third parties.

Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information

Compile may automatically collect non-Personal Information relating to such matters as the total number of visits to this website, the number of visitors to each page of this website, the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of our visitors, and the time spent on this website. We may use this information, which is collected in and remains in aggregate form, to understand how our visitors use this website so that we can improve it. We may also use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our servers and for purposes of system administration. From time to time, we may share aggregated, non-Personal Information with our agents, business partners, consultants, or other third parties.

Some non-Personal Information may be collected through cookies. Cookies are used by most major websites. A cookie is a text file stored on a user's computer hard drive containing information about the user. Cookies can enable us to track the interests of our users to enhance their experience on this Site and to deliver content specific to a user's interests. We may place a cookie in the browser file of your computer when you visit this website. You may delete or decline the cookie using the tools in your web browser; although you may still use this website without the cookie, some parts of the website may not work properly for you. These cookies are not linked to Personal Information. Third parties also place cookies on our site and the data is only collected in the aggregate.

Information Transfer

Your Personal Information may be transferred to, stored, and processed in a country other than the one in which it was provided. This may include the United States. When we do so, we transfer information in compliance with applicable data protection laws. And, we take steps to protect Personal Information in whatever country it is stored in or transferred to. We have procedures and controls to help ensure this.

Security

We are committed to keeping Personal Information secure, and have implemented generally accepted industry standards of technical, administrative and physical procedures to protect Personal Information. We also limit access to Personal Information to those who have a business need. When we provide your Personal Information to controllers or process, including service providers, we require those companies to protect the information and not to use the information for any other purpose.

Nevertheless, although we have tried to create a secured and reliable website, the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to or from this website cannot be guaranteed. We urge you to exercise caution when conveying Personal Information over the Internet. When disclosing any Personal Information, you should remain mindful that such information might be accessible by the public and, consequently, may be collected and used by others without your consent. You should also recognize that your use of the Internet and this website is solely at your own risk.

The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number) on our forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
