We are committed to the online privacy of all its users. This policy statement is designed to give a clear explanation of BIM Academy’s data processing practices.
We will not collect any information about individuals, except where it is specifically and knowingly provided by them. Examples of such information are:
- Your name
- Your address
- Your email address
- Your telephone number
- Your occupation
In some cases, we may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type and we may share non-personal aggregate statistics (group data) about our website visitors’ traffic patterns with partners or other parties. However, we do not collect, sell or share any information about individual users.
Where we store your personal data
All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers.
Uses made of this information
We use information held about you in the following ways: to ensure that content from our website is presented in the most effective manner for users, to allow you to participate in interactive features of our website and to contact you in order to send you information you have asked us to provide or which we think may be useful to you.
Disclosure of your information
We will never disclose your information to anyone outside of BIM Academy except where we have your consent; where we are required or permitted to do so by law; to other companies who provide a service to us; or to any successors in title to our business.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk.
These are small files that we send to and store on your computer so that we may recognise it as a unique machine the next time you visit our site. There are three reasons for doing this.
- To keep track of your information for your convenience
- To help us to optimise your online experience by altering our content depending on your particular needs or browsing patterns
- To help us to understand the size of our audience and their traffic patterns within our site.
Automatically gathered data
The information gathered automatically by our system, such as your computer’s IP address, the kind of browser you are using and a record of your navigation through our sites – may be used by BIM Academy so that we can understand how to make our sites convenient and useful to our audience.
You have the ability to terminate email correspondence from us at any time. You will either be given the chance to opt-in to direct mailing when you disclose your email address to us, or you can simply reply to our email, typing ‘unsubscribe’ in the subject line.
The website may contain links to other sites which are outside our control and not covered by this policy. The operators of these sites may collect information from you that will be used by them in accordance with their policy, which may differ from ours.
