Compliance and privacy is committed to providing you with excellent service for all of our products. We respect your right to privacy and have therefore developed this Privacy Statement to inform you about our privacy practices.
Privacy is of great concern to most users of the Internet and is a critical part of an enjoyable and satisfactory user experience. We at Compliance and Privacy are acutely aware of and sensitive to the privacy concerns of our subscribers and other visitors to our website. We do not collect personal information from you unless you give it to us. We have servers located throughout the world, and your data is stored on one or more of these.
Please note that our sites contain links to other sites. Compliance and Privacy is not responsible for the privacy practices, privacy statements or content regarding these other sites.
Information We Gather from You
We do not collect any personal information from a visitor to our site unless that visitor explicitly and intentionally provides it. If you are simply browsing our site, we do not gather any personal information about you.
Subscription or Registration
If you choose to subscribe to or download certain information from us, we will request certain information from you. We will then use this information to fulfil your requests and to send you the material you have asked for.
When you visit our site, our computers may automatically collect statistics about your visit. This information does not identify you personally, but rather identifies information about your visit to our site. We may monitor statistics such as how many people visit our site, the user's IP address, which pages people visit, from which domains our visitors come and which browsers people use. We use these statistics about your visit for aggregation purposes only. These statistics are used to help us improve the performance of our website.
We collect anonymous statistics about your visit, like which of our pages you viewed.
Some 3rd parties like Facebook and Twitter may know you visited this website, if you use their services. We can't control them but we don't believe this knowledge poses any threat to you.
If you sign up with us we take great care to keep your information safe and we'll never share it with others without your express permission.
We never share your data with 3rd parties except to help us deliver our own services.
These are just the key points. If you need detail, keep reading.
Measuring our visitors
We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don't know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.
The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.
You can learn more about Google Analytics or opt out if you wish. You should also read How Google uses data when you use our partners' sites or apps
Facebook, Twitter and other social networks
These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website – such as the "Like" and "Tweet" buttons.
To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function their buttons generally know if you're logged in; for example Facebook use this to say "x of your friends like this". We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it.
Social networks therefore could know that you're viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn't to say they do, but their policies may change). As our website is remarkably inoffensive we imagine this is not a concern for most users.
How We Use and With Whom We Share the Personal Information We Gather
The personal information we gather from you is used by us only as explained below.
Sending you responses and updates
We generally respond to any e-mail questions, requests for product or service information and other inquiries that we receive. We may also retain this correspondence to improve our products, services and website and for other disclosed purposes. Frequently we retain contact information so that we can send individuals updates or other important information about our services and products.
Disclosure by Law and Protection of Compliance and Privacy and Others
If we are required by law to disclose certain information to local, state, federal, national or international government or law enforcement authorities, we will do so. We will also disclose information to third parties as necessary in order to comply with applicable laws and regulations. In addition, Compliance and Privacy may share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities or suspected fraud, or enforce or apply Compliance and Privacy's agreements.
From time to time, we may request information from customers via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use of and satisfaction with this website, and improving our customer service and product offerings.
Your Ability to Opt Out of Further Notifications
At any time you may alter your registration on this site. This affects any future communications from us with the specific exception of a very short "work in progress" period during which you may still receive information from us that differs from your registration period
