Users who disable their Web browsers’ ability to accept cookies will still be able to browse the Site; however, they will not be able to log in as registered users or to make use of the App. The App collects automatically information such as the type of mobile device you use, your mobile device’s unique user ID, the IP address of your mobile device, your mobile operating system, the type of mobile Internet browsers you use, and your time zone.

Compology does not collect personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services.
Does the App collect precise real time location information of the device?
This application does collect precise information about the location of your device, using the “location services” function of your device. Compology uses this information in order to provide the Services to you. You must allow such use in order to obtain the Services.
Do third parties see and/or have access to information obtained by the Site and the App?
We may disclose user provided and automatically collected Information: (a) as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process; (b) when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, or investigate fraud; (c) with our third party services providers who work on our behalf, for the purpose of providing our Services, and for no other purpose; and (d) if some or all of Compology’s business or assets are sold or otherwise transferred, to the buyer or transferee.
Automatic Data Collection
We may work with analytics companies to help us understand how the Site and the App are being used, such as the frequency and duration of usage. Our third party contractors use some of the information collected by the Site and the App to assist Compology in providing the Services.
What are my opt-out rights?
You can stop all collection of information (a) by the Site by not using the Site and (b) by the App by uninstalling the App. You may use the standard uninstall processes as may be available as part of your mobile device or via the mobile application marketplace or network. You will not be able to obtain, access or use the Services without use of the Site and the App.
You may at any time opt-out from further allowing us to have access to your location data by going to the location services, under “settings,” on your mobile device and turning location services off. You will not be able to make full use of the Services without providing access to your location information via the App.
Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide reasonable security for information we process and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.
