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?
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.

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

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. p>
