Post & BIM Cookie Policy

At Post & BIM, we believe in being clear and open about how we collect and use data related to you. In the spirit of transparency, this policy provides detailed information about how and when we use cookies.

A. Does Post & BIM use cookies?

Yes. As described in our Privacy Policy, we use cookies and other technologies to ensure everyone who uses Post & BIM has the best possible experience. Cookies also help us keep your account safe. By continuing to visit or use our services, you are agreeing to the use of cookies and similar technologies for the purposes we describe in this policy.

B. What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables Post & BIM features and functionality. For example, cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to Post & BIM and our sites generally, and even help us know if someone attempts to access your account from a different device. Cookies also enable you to easily share content on Post & BIM and help us serve relevant ads to you.

C. When does Post & BIM place cookies?

We use cookies on our sites and mobile applications. Any browser visiting these sites will receive cookies from us.

D. What types of cookies does Post & BIM use?

We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to Post & BIM or interact with our services without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by Post & BIM when you return to one of our sites or a partner site that uses our services (for example, our sharing or job application buttons). Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).

E. What are cookies used for?

Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit Post & BIM, remember your preferences, give you a personalized experience that’s in line with your settings, and bring you advertising. Cookies also make your interactions with Post & BIM faster and more secure.

Categories of Use Description
Authentication If you’re signed in to Post & BIM, cookies help us show you the right information and personalize your experience.
Security We use cookies to enable and support our security features, and to help us detect malicious activity and violations of our Terms of Service.
Preferences, features, and services Cookies can tell us which language you prefer and what your communications preferences are. They can help you fill out forms on Post & BIM more easily. They also provide you with features, insights, and customized content in conjunction with our plugins.
Advertising We may use cookies to show you relevant advertising. We may also use a cookie to learn whether someone who saw an ad later visited and took an action (e.g. downloaded a white paper or made a purchase) on the advertiser’s site. Similarly, our partners may use a cookie to determine whether we’ve shown an ad and how it performed, or provide us with information about how you interact with ads.
Performance, Analytics and Research Cookies help us learn how well our site and plugins perform in different locations. We also use cookies to understand, improve, and research products, features, and services.

F. How are cookies used for advertising purposes?

Cookies and other ad technology such as beacons, pixels, and tags help us serve relevant ads to you more effectively. They also help us provide aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for advertisers, understand and improve our service, and know when content has been shown to you. Note: Because your web browser may request advertisements and beacons directly from third party ad network servers, these networks can view, edit, or set third party cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site. Ads served by Post & BIM may also set third party cookies.

Unless you clear these cookies from your browser, we may use this information to:

  • provide more relevant, interest-based advertising
  • provide aggregate reports of ads activity to advertisers and websites hosting the ads
  • help website and app owners understand how visitors engage with their sites or apps
  • detect and defend against fraud and other risks to protect users and partners
  • improve our products

G. What third-party cookies does Post & BIM use?

Our cookie table lists some of the third party cookies on our sites. Please note that the names of cookies, pixels and other technologies may change over time. Please also note that companies and other organizations that sponsor pages on Post & BIM may use cookies, pixels or other technologies on their Post & BIM pages to learn about your interest in them.

H. Controlling cookies

If you do not want to receive cookies, you can change your browser settings on your computer or other device you’re using to access our services. However, if you limit the ability of websites to set cookies, you may worsen your overall user experience, since it will no longer be personalized to you and may also stop you from saving customized settings like login information. The Post & BIM site will not work properly without cookies. If you use Post & BIM without changing your browser settings, we’ll assume that you’re happy to receive the cookies on the Post & BIM website.
