Privacy Policy

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Compendium Software Systems, LLC (“CSS”) collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. CSS’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how CSS’s visitors use its website. From time to time, CSS may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

CSS also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. CSS does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.​

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to CSS’s websites choose to interact with CSS in ways that require CSS to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that CSS gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with CSS are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, CSS collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with CSS. CSS does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

CSS may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. CSS may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, CSS does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

CSS discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on CSS’s behalf or to provide services available at CSS’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using CSS’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. CSS will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, CSS discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when CSS believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of CSS, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of an CSS website and have supplied your email address, CSS may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with CSS. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. CSS takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. CSS uses cookies to help CSS identify and track visitors, their usage of CSS website, and their website access preferences. CSS visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using CSS’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of CSS’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, CSS may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in CSS’s sole discretion. CSS encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a account, you should also check your blog’s dashboard for alerts to these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
