“Personal Details” refers to every detail concerning a known or identifiable natural person or persons’ device. Examples of these details are: name, date of birth, e-mail address, postal address, etc.

They include details relating to the way you use the Compassa websites.

Anonymous data help Compassa to improve its website and service on the basis of user behaviour.
Collection and use of personal details – Registration
You can visit our website and use Compassa’s services without providing your Personal Details to Compassa. You will only be asked to provide certain Personal Details to Compassa if you register as a Compassa newsletter subscriber, submit an enquiry through our online contact forms, register for a consultation or webinar, or enrol to become a learner on one of our courses. You will also be asked for some Personal Details if you request information about our services or general information.
For instance, Compassa requests Personal Details (such as your first name and surname, e-mail address, website address, etc.) so that we can contact you.
Compassa uses this information for the following purposes: to provide you with support in the use of its products and services; to use your first name and surname in e-mail messages and newsletters that Compassa sends to users of its services; to inform you about new services.
Sharing Personal Details with others
Compassa shall not share any Personal Details with third parties without your consent unless you are a learner studying an approved or accredited course linked to an external body such as IOSH/NEBOSH. In such cases, we will share your personal data with the relevant external body to administer your assessments and obtain your course certificates.

Publication of your identity
Compassa occasionally receives requests to publish the identity of the users of the Compassa website and services. Compassa refuses all such requests, unless it is obliged by law to comply with them.
Compassa collects Anonymous Data when users visit its website or use its services, even if the users are not registered as users with Compassa. Compassa uses this information to improve the overall level of service.
Attendance on Webinars
Compassa organises publicly accessible webinars which are delivered through a variety of webinar and video call technology (e.g. Zoom, WebinarJam). If you register for a webinar, you accept that your name may be publicly visible to other webinar attendees. If your microphone and webcam are switched on, your audio and video may be transmitted to others in the webinar just like on a video conference call. This is to ensure that Compassa’s webinars are interactive and allow lively discussion between the presenter and attendees.
Webinars may be recorded and these recordings distributed amongst other webinar attendees. Whole or part webinar recordings may also be broadcast or shared on the internet or social media. By registering and attending a webinar, you give consent to your name/image/voice being used in this way.
