directly from you. In most circumstances where the personal information

your permission before we publish this information to the web site (such
permission may be given directly by you, or implied from your actions).
From time to time, we may utilize the services of third parties (including
our web site developer MediaTrik) in our business and may also receive
personal information collected by other third parties in the course
of the performance of their services for us or otherwise. Where this
is the case, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that such third
parties have represented to us that they have the right to disclose
your personal information to us.

purposes, including competing for engineering services contracts and

DSS will periodically review and monitor the content of employee and
team mate submitted data to ensure that personal information, not relevant
to skills, qualifications and capabilities, is not included, and that
no inappropriate content is introduced.
DSS reserves the right to edit or delete employee and team mate submissions
to ensure appropriate content and prevent the inadvertent exposure of
unnecessary personal information.
This section is not meant to suggest that all content will be constantly
monitored. We have no duty to so monitor. It is meant to bring to your
attention the fact that such monitoring may occur and may result in
the editing of personal information submitted by employees and team
mates. When using the DSS web site or other DSS resources employees
