The following paragraphs explain in general terms how we protect the privacy of personal information, however it may be collected.
As this is a dynamic facility involving opportunities to add data, upload files, and contribute information, the types of personal information that we collect from you will vary. For example, in order to create a Plot & Audit Operator account and in some other instances it may be necessary to obtain details such as your name, address, contact telephone numbers, email address, and other relevant information. In other instances only non-identifying data may be collected, such as in anonymous survey responses.
Amtac may collect information when you contact us in person or by telephone, forward correspondence or forms (whether by browser, letter, fax or email), or visit web sites/portals maintained by Amtac. Due to the nature of the services provided to our clients, Amtac may also collect information from a third party. For example:
It is a fundamental privacy principle that your consent is required for the collection of "sensitive information". Given that the transfer of information to us requires your active participation, we quite reasonably assume that you have consented to the collection of all information which is provided for use in accordance with this Statement, unless you advise us otherwise.
In some circumstances you may provide information anonymously, where it is lawful and practicable to do so. For example, some services on this portal may include provision for making contributions anonymously, such as through surveys. In such cases, no attempt is made at all to identify you or the computer you are using, and no information is collected electronically other than that provided by you through the forms you complete.
Notwithstanding the circumstances regarding anonymous contact with Amtac, our computers may automatically collect certain information that is necessary to provide functionality of the site or is required for security purposes to protect the operation of the site and information that may be accessed via this portal.
