Revised: December 09, 2013

Engineeringpk respects your preferences concerning the treatment of personal information that we may collect from your use of the Service (as defined below). This Policy lets you know how we collect and use your personal information, and how you can control its use.

1.      ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS

By using the Service, you consent to our collection and use of information about you in accordance with this Policy. We may update this Policy from time to time by posting a modified statement on this page, or, if we determine that it is appropriate, we may post a notice of the change on our home page. By continuing to use the Service after we have posted a modified Policy, you agree to the terms of the modified Policy. This Policy forms part of the Terms of Use that governs your use of the Service, so please be sure to read the entire Terms of Use .

This Policy does not apply to: (1) websites operated by our individual members or users; (2) websites operated by third-party Engineeringpk affiliates; (3) our advertisers' websites; or (4) any third-party websites referred or linked to in the Service. You should review those sites' privacy practices before using them or submitting any personally identifiable information to them.

2.      DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE

Engineeringpk offers a collaboration environment at http://www.engineeringpk.com/ that provides, among other features: (a) searchable knowledgebase of engineering information; (b) online database of engineering industry, education, research organizations of Pakistan and abroad; (c) data related to jobs, books, journals; and (d) community forums and resources (the "Service").

3.      COLLECTION OF NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION

As is true when you visit our website,  it may automatically receive information from you as part of the communication connection itself, which often consists of network routing information (where you came from), equipment information (browser type) and date and time. Engineeringpk also uses cookies, embedded URLs, embedded pixels and other similar technologies to capture additional information.

Generally, cookies enable our servers to remember visitors, allow entry into password-protected areas, and to help ensure accurate measuring of web traffic. Cookies can be deleted or rejected by changing the settings on your web browser. Please be aware that your deletion or rejection of cookies may affect your ability to use certain parts of the Service effectively. Because advertisers or third-party websites may use cookies in different ways, this Policy regarding the use of cookies covers only our Service.
