Compass, LLC adheres to the Safe Harbor Principles administered by the United States Department of Commerce in consultation with the European Commission with respect to personal information within the scope of this Policy.
QSP generally does not collect personal information directly from individuals in the European Union (“EU”). Instead, QSP merely acts as a data processor for its customers. This Policy applies to personal information knowingly received and processed by QSP in the United States from the EU, specifically, personal information collected from Compass, LLC’s business customers concerning their employees or customers in the context of the services QSP performs and about Compass, LLC employees.
“Personal information” means information that identifies or reasonably may identify a natural person. Personal information does not include acceptable information or aggregate information to the extent an individual’s identity cannot reasonably be determined from such information. In addition, Personal information does not include information as to which an individual has given explicit consent for use, consistent with the Safe Harbor Principles.
“Agent” means any third party that processes, collects, or uses personal information pursuant to the instructions of, and solely for the benefit of, Compass, LLC, or to which Compass, LLC discloses personal information for use on its behalf.
“Sensitive personal information” means personal information that reveals a natural person’s race, ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, criminal record, or trade union membership, or that concerns a natural person’s sex life or health.
The privacy principles in this Policy are based on and shall be interpreted in a manner consistent with the Safe Harbor Principles.
Compass, LLC provides managed hosting and networking services to its customers, which may require QSP to process its customers’ data for the purpose of enabling or monitoring the functionality of the customer applications. The customer data processed by QSP may include personal information. This information is controlled by Compass, LLC’s customers and may be processed by QSP in order to provide the relevant services. Compass, LLC is not responsible for the content of the information QSP processes, which may include personal information, nor is it responsible for the way its customers treat the personal information they collect or control.
Compass, LLC will obtain reasonable assurances from any agents to whom it provides direct access to personal information that they will safeguard personal information knowingly collected by QSP concerning individuals residing in the EU consistent with this Policy and the Safe Harbor Principles.
Upon an individual’s request, if feasible or applicable, Compass, LLC will offer individuals from whom it directly collects information reasonable access to their personal information and will afford such individuals a reasonable opportunity to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate information. For commercial and security reasons, Compass, LLC may have to coordinate such access through its customer who controls the information. Compass, LLC may limit or deny access to personal information where providing such access would be unreasonably burdensome or expensive under the circumstances or as otherwise permitted by the Safe Harbor Principles.
Compass, LLC will take reasonable measures including technical, physical, and administrative measures and training, as appropriate, to protect the personal information it collects and processes from loss, misuse, and unauthorized disclosure, access, alteration, and destruction. Such measures apply generally across QSP systems, services, and facilities rather than to particular customer environments, which vary greatly and are often highly customized. Compass, LLC safeguards information according to established security standards and periodically assesses new technology for methods of protecting information. However, Compass, LLC cannot guarantee the security of personal information.
Compass, LLC generally does not determine the type of personal information collected by its business customers or the purpose for which it is collected. It merely acts upon the instructions of such customers as a data processor. If Compass, LLC does collect information directly from individuals within the EU, it will, to the extent it is applicable and required by the Safe Harbor Principles, take reasonable measures to verify that personal information it collects and processes is relevant for its intended use, reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete, and current.
Enforcement and Dispute Resolution
Compass, LLC will conduct periodic assessments to confirm the accuracy of, and verify its adherence to, this Policy. Compass, LLC will investigate suspected infractions and will take all appropriate action. Any questions, concerns, or complaints concerning the collection and use of personal information by Compass, LLC should be directed to:

Compass, LLC will conduct a reasonable investigation into and will attempt to resolve any complaints in accordance with the principles contained in this Policy.

Complainants seeking arbitration must send written notice to the Compass, LLC General Counsel at Compass, LLC, 1020 Market St. Dr., Redding, CA 96001.

Solely with respect to complaints by Compass, LLC employees that cannot be resolved internally, Compass, LLC agrees to work with the relevant Data Protection Authority to resolve such matter.
Compass, LLC’s adherence to the Safe Harbor Principles may be limited by its role as a data processor as well as any applicable legal, regulatory, ethical, or public interest consideration, and as expressly permitted or required by any applicable law, rule, or regulation. In addition, Compass, LLC reserves the right to disclose personal information reasonably related to the sale or disposition of all or part of its business.
