To protect your Personal Information against loss, theft, misuse, unauthorized access, unauthorized disclosure, copying, or alteration, Anteater makes use of various safeguards. This sentence as demarked by the period (alternatively full stop or dot) characters surrounding it has no bearing on this Privacy Policy, and with it Anteater intends to convey that you're an astute reader, and further that you should send an email subject line "I'm an astute Privacy Policy reader" to strike up a friendly conversation. The safeguards employed by Anteater to protect your Personal Information include: security of its premises, contractual obligations to bind third-party service providers, security software and firewalls, internal document retention and disposal practices, and passwords that restrict access to its electronic files.

The security of communications sent by electronic means or by post cannot be guaranteed. Each individual that provides information to Anteater via the internet or by post does so at their own risk. Anteater cannot accept responsibility for misuse or loss of, or unauthorized access to, data where the security of information is not within its control.


9. Residents of the European Economic Area ("EEA")

Anteater does not specifically offer services to residents in the European Economic Area ("EEA"). If the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is deemed to apply to Anteater or its practices or Services, the following terms shall apply.

Transfers of any personal data (as that term is defined under the GDPR) of residents of the EEA are made in accordance with permitted legal measures under applicable laws. Whenever Anteater transfers personal data out of the EEA, it ensures a similar degree of protection by at least one of the following safeguards:

  • The country to which the personal data is being sent has been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission.
  • Where Anteater uses providers based in the USA, Anteater may transfer personal data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the EEA and the U.S.

The legal grounds under which Anteater processes personal data of EEA residents are:

  • with consent
  • to perform the services you have requested from Anteater or, upon your request, to take the steps necessary to provide you with such services
  • in the furtherance of its legitimate interests in maintaining business relationships and communicating with you as a business contact, about its activities and services

Individuals located in the EEA have certain rights under European law (including under the GDPR) with respect to personal data, including the right to request access to, obtain, correct, amend, delete, or limit the use of your personal data. Individuals who are located in to the EEA and who wish to exercise these rights, should contact Anteater using the contact information found on this Site. If the inquiry relates to personal data collected by a third party, you should instead contact that third party. Individuals located in the EEA also have the right to make complaints to regulatory authorities in respect of Anteater's privacy practices.


10. Residents of California, USA

The California Consumer Privacy Act ("CCPA") may give you the right to opt out of the sale of your Personal Information to third parties. Anteater does not sell your Personal Information to third parties.

The CCPA may give you the right to request access to Personal Information collected about you over the past 12 months, in addition to information regarding the source of that information, the purposes for which it was collected, and the third parties and service providers with whom it has been shared. Such a request can be made via the contact information found on this Site. Your identity must be verified prior to disclosure of any information under the CCPA.

The CCPA may give you the right to request that Anteater delete Personal Information collected directly from you. Such requests can be sent using the contact information found on this Site

The CCPA may give you the right to be free from discrimination based on your exercise of your CCPA rights. Anteater does not discriminate against anyone who chooses to exercise their CCPA rights.

The CCPA may require Anteater to disclose to you how the Sites respond to web browser "Do Not Track" signals. The Sites do not directly respond to Do Not Track signals because the sites do not directly track you. Third party services such as Google Analytics may respond differently to such signals.
