Use of Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

The technology that we currently use for this automatic data collection includes:

Cookies

A cookie (or browser cookie) is a small file placed on the hard drive of your computer. You may refuse to accept browser cookies by activating the appropriate setting on your browser. However, if you select this setting you may be unable to access certain parts of the Site. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you direct your browser to the Site.

Do Not Track Policy

Your web browser may offer you a “Do Not Track” option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and web applications and services (including behavioral advertising services) that you do not wish such operators to track certain of your online activities over time and across different websites. We do not honor any web browser “Do Not Track” signals or other mechanisms that provide you with the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services.

Third-party Responsibilities and Services

We may use or partner with other third party companies, agents or contractors for various purposes in connection with our business and operations (“Service Providers”), including, billing and payments, relationship building, the marketing and growth of our business and the performance of services on our behalf, such as gathering and analyzing information and the provision of services to you.  In the course of performing these responsibilities and providing such services, these other companies may have access to your information.  We may also share information, including your information, with these Services Providers in order to enable them to perform these responsibilities and to provide these services.  Many Services Providers have adopted their own privacy policies, which are not subject to control by Pericept. You should always review the policies of these Service Providers to make sure that you are comfortable with the ways in which they collect, use, maintain, protect and disclose your information.

The Service Providers may also transmit cookies to your computer or device, when you click on ads that appear on or through the BIMtrace Services. Also, if you click on a link to a third party website, such third party may also transmit cookies to you. Please be aware that cookies placed by third parties may continue to track your activities online even after you have left our Services, and those third parties may not honor “Do Not Track” requests you have set using your web browser.

Use of Remarketing with Google Analytics and Google AdWords

The BIMtrace Services may use the Google AdWords remarketing service to advertise on third party websites (including Google) to previous visitors to the Site. It could mean that we advertise to previous visitors who haven’t completed a task on the Site, for example using the contact form to make an enquiry. This could be in the form of an advertisement on the Google search results page, or a site in the Google Display Network. Service Providers, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on someone’s past visits to the Site. Of course, any data collected will be used in accordance with this privacy policy, Google’s privacy policy, or the privacy policy of other remarketing services used by Pericept.

You can control how Google advertises to you through Ads Settings (www.google.com/settings/ads/authenticated) and if you want to, you can opt out of interest-based advertising entirely.

We may use Google Analytics remarketing codes to log when users view specific pages or take specific actions on a website. This allows us to provide targeted advertising in the future. If you do not wish to receive this type of advertising from us in the future, you can opt out using Google Ads Settings or the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page (www.networkadvertising.org/choices).

Google has additional information available about its Remarketing Privacy Guidelines, Policies, and Restrictions on its website.

You can review and change your personal information by logging into your account profile page through the Site or the Applications.

You may also send us an e-mail at support@pericept.com to request access to, correct or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. We cannot delete your personal information except by also deleting your user account. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.

If you delete your User Content from any of the BIMtrace Services (including any User Content stored in the cloud), copies of your User Content may remain viewable in cached and archived pages, or might have been copied or stored by other users of the Service, the Applications, the Software or the Site. Proper access and use of information provided on or through the Site, the Applications, the Software or the Services, including User Content, are governed by the Terms.

Your California Privacy Rights

California Civil Code Section § 1798.83 permits users of the Applications or the Site that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an e-mail to support@pericept.com or write to us at: Pericept, Inc., 2121 E William J Bryan #3035, Bryan, TX 77805.

Data Security

We understand that the security of your personal information is important. We provide reasonable administrative, technical, and physical security controls to protect your personal information.  However, despite our efforts, no security controls are 100% effective and Pericept cannot ensure or warrant the security of your personal information. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Site.

The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of the Site and/or or the use of the Software or the Services and the Applications, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the Applications or the Site. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any user of the Applications or the Site.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

It is our policy to post any changes we make to our privacy policy on this page with a notice that the privacy policy has been updated on the home pages of the Applications or the Site for at least 30 days. If we make material changes to how we treat our users’ personal information that are materially less protective than provided in this policy, we will use reasonable efforts to notify you by e-mail to the e-mail address specified in your account and/or through a notice on the home pages of the Site and to attempt to get your consent to the changes. The date the privacy policy was last updated is identified above. You are responsible for ensuring that we have an up-to-date active and deliverable e-mail address for you, and for periodically visiting the Site and this privacy policy to check for any changes.  Like our Terms, of which this policy is a part, your use of the Services, the Applications or the Site, and/or continued use of the Software or the Services, the Applications or the Site after our efforts to contact you means that you agree to be bound by such changes.

Survival

The policies indicated in this privacy policy will remain effective, even if the Terms and the agreement between us are terminated and you are no longer using the Services, the Applications, the Software or the Site.
