Does Compass share my information with third parties?
We may contract with third parties to assist us in collecting, maintaining and managing our website visitor information, other requests and/or to communicate with website visitors. We do not authorize any of those third parties to make any other use of your information. Compass requires third parties to which it discloses personal information to restrict their use of such information to the purposes for which it has been provided by Compass and not to disclose that information to others. Compass cannot be responsible, however, for any damages caused by the failure of unaffiliated third parties to honor their privacy obligations to Compass.
Additionally, Compass may share personal information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies in the following cases: (1) when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) the rights of Compass or to anyone that could be harmed by such activities; (2) when we believe in good faith that the law requires it; (3) to our parent company or to any third party who may acquire Compass; and (4) in situations involving threats to the physical safety of any person.

What is a “cookie” and does Compass place it on my computer?
When you access many websites, information may be stored on your computer in the form of a “cookie” or similar file that is saved in your computer’s browser. Compass does not store any personal information in cookies. All personal information is stored separately on its secured servers.
How does Compass protect my personal information?
You can be assured that personal information collected through the website is secure and is maintained in a manner consistent with current industry standards. The importance of security for all personal information associated with our subscribers is of utmost concern to us. Your personal information is protected in several ways. Your personal information resides on a secure server that only Compass staff and contractors have access to via password. We encrypt your personal information and thereby prevent unauthorized parties from viewing such information when it is transmitted to us. In order to most efficiently serve you, credit card transactions and order fulfillment are handled by established third-party banking, processing agents and distribution institutions. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the internet which are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and Compass through the websites cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party. If you do not want to provide your personal information to Compass over the Internet, please e-mail [email protected] or mail to The Compass Group, 301 Riverside Ave, 2nd Floor, Westport, CT 06880

Changes to Policy

If you do not send us any objections, we will assume that you consent to changes in the Policy.
