ANTS Inc goal is to deliver content targeted to its counterparts, current and prospective business partners, current and prospective clients, and other interested organisations and individuals active in all relevant fields of international engineering and management consulting.
   This policy is intended to explain how information from users at any time is collected, what it is collected for, and what choices users may have. ANTS Inc web site (the Site) also provides links to other sites that may be of interest to users. These sites are provided as a convenience and are beyond ANTS Inc control. Users are advised to check the privacy policies of those sites before providing personal information to them.
 
1. Means of Data Collection
The following are the main means of collecting data:
   (a) Registration screens and online forms;
   (b) User messages sent to ANTS Inc;
   (c) Interactive discussions and public forums;
   (d) Automated means such as communications protocols and cookies (defined as small pieces of information sent by web servers to store on a web browser so that they can later be read back from browsers).
   ANTS Inc may receive data from users as part of the communication connection itself - the standard electronic greeting between user's computer, the network and the linked servers. This information often consists of network routing, equipment information (browser type), date and time. Currently, cookies are not sent out, and therefore, user computers are not queried to see if there are cookies previously set by ANTS Inc. As the Site is further customised, cookies may have to be used in assuring that information provided will be the most relevant to user needs. Such changes in the implementation policy and methodology will always be noted on this page.
   Note: Web browsers provide information and control over cookies. Web browsers can be set to alert users when cookies are being used. They can also get information on the duration of cookies, and what servers the information is being returned to. Users then have the opportunity to accept or reject cookies (browsers can be preset to refuse all cookies or accept only cookies returned to the originating servers). Users may generally disable the cookie feature on their browsers without affecting their ability to use the site, except in some cases where cookies are used as an essential security feature necessary for transaction completion.
 
2. Types of Collected Data
ANTS Inc collects the following types of information from users:
   (a) business contact information to engage in transactions or communications;
   (b) information collected as a result of site navigation as well as information provided in forms to help create web site content and navigation that is most relevant and user friendly;
   (c) information exchanged through all kinds of correspondence between ANTS Inc and users;
   (d) personally identifiable information which may be required to comply with legally mandated reporting and processing;
   (e) specific information described and requested by ANTS Inc in other sections of the Site;
   (f) information provided by participants in moderated interactive discussions and public forums.
   ANTS Inc does not control the content that users post, so that, as in all interactive media open to many users, users should carefully consider whether they wish to submit personally identifiable information.
 
3. Advertising
ANTS Inc may permit a limited amount of sponsorship and advertisement on the Site. In such circumstances, no personally identifiable information is to be passed back to the advertisers as part of this process, but aggregate profile information may be used in the selection of advertising to make sure that it has relevance to users. The privacy practices of advertisers, like other external links, are beyond the control of ANTS Inc and users should review the privacy policy of any associated site before providing any personal information.
 
4. Security
ANTS Inc is concerned with the security of the personally identifiable information that is collected, and implements reasonable data access controls to prevent unauthorised access to that information.
 
5. Policy Updates
ANTS Inc makes no independent use of the collected information outside of what is needed to manage the Site, and to support or to complete specific actions requested by the user. If any personally identifiable information is needed to be used in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, the revised terms of use for the newly defined implementation will be announced in relevant sections of this Site and interested users will be invited to forward some or all of that information again.
   In addition, if ANTS Inc makes any material changes in its privacy practices that do not affect user information already collected, a prominent notice will be posted on this web Site notifying users of the change. This policy may be updated from time to time to describe how new site features affect use of user information and to announce new control and preference features that are provided.
