BIMobject believes in being open and transparent about how we collect and use your personal information. This Cookies Statement applies to the Services* as defined in the BIMobject Terms of Service (the "Terms") as well as any BIMobject product or service that links to this document or incorporates it by reference. This Cookies Statement describes what cookies are used when you access our Services and includes information on how to limit or deny these cookies.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is essentially a text file which is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. Cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to our website/Services (so you can for example, safely log in to your Account) or even help us know if someone attempts to access your account from a different device.

When are cookies placed?

Any browser visiting www.bimobject.com the Services (or accessing the websites of any third-party from the same) will receive cookies.

What types of cookies are used?

There are two main types of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies.

Session cookies are created temporarily in your browser's subfolder while you are visiting a website and only last for as long as the session. Once you leave the site, the session cookie is deleted.

A persistent cookie remains in your browser's subfolder and is activated again once you visit the website that created that particular cookie. So, for example, if you are a registered user and sign into your account, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by BIMobject when you return to allowing us to recognize you so you don’t have to sign in again.

First party and third-party cookies

First party cookies are cookies set by a website you directly visit i.e. the website displayed in the URL window.

Third party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than the one you are visiting. So, if you access or visit another website through ours, cookies set from that website would be third party cookies.

When you use our Services you may also receive third party cookies from third party websites you visit e.g. manufacturer’s product sites. You may also receive cookies from our designated service providers/partners. For more information regarding this please see our Privacy Policy. Such third parties will most likely have their own privacy notice(s) and cookie statement(s) where you can find detailed information.
