Compt Inc.
Privacy Policy

Last Updated: December 2, 2019

We will NEVER sell your personal data to anyone.

This Privacy Policy applies to personal data processed by Compt in our business, including on our websites and other online or offline offerings (a “Service” or collectively, the “Services”). Compt enables the visitors of its site, www.Compt.io, to be in control of their personal data. We also provide controls that allow Compt’s users/customers to have control over the privacy of personal data that is captured by our service. This Privacy Policy provides information about how Compt processes and protects this data.

Compt considers data protection and privacy to be of paramount importance. We never sell personal data and we carry out all processing operations in strict compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) as well as the Laws of Delaware and the United States, where Compt is incorporated, and other applicable global privacy and data protection laws such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) (collectively, the “Applicable Law”).

For the purpose of this Privacy Policy, personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (or household as applicable); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person (the “Personal Data”).

Responsibility for Processing Personal Data

Compt bears responsibility for lawfully processing your data as carried out on our site.

What kind of Personal Data is processed and for what purpose?

Usage Data

When you visit our site we store the name of your internet service provider, the website from which you visited us from, the parts of our site you visit, the date and duration of your visit, and information from the device (device type, operating system, screen resolution, language, country you are located in, and web browser type) you used during your visit. While we process your IP address during the duration of your session, the IP address is truncated and thereby de-identified before it is ever written to disk on our servers. This is done by removing the last octet of your full IP address.

We process this usage data to facilitate your access to our services (e.g. to adjust our services to the device you are using), and to recognize and stop any misuse which is in our legitimate interest. The legal basis for this data processing is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. We also process usage data in an aggregated or de-identified form for statistical purposes and to improve our site.

This is done to provide you with a better experience, and to facilitate the use of certain functions. Cookies are small data files transferred onto computers or devices by sites for record-keeping purposes and to enhance functionality on our site. Compt stores this information in a pseudonymized user profile. Compt does not process this information to identify individual users or to match it with further data on an individual user.
