Your privacy is our top concern. We work hard to earn and keep your trust, so we adhere to the following principles to protect your privacy:
• We will never rent or sell your personally identifiable information to third parties for marketing purposes
• We will never share your contact information with another user, without your consent.
• Any sensitive information that you provide will be secured with all industry standard protocols and technology
1. What personally identifiable information of yours is collected by e-BIM.
2. How the information is used.
3. With whom the information may be shared.
4. How you can access and change your Account information.
5. What security procedures are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information collected by e-BIM.
6. How to contact us.
In order to become an e-BIM user, you must first create an account on this Web site. To create an account, you are required to provide the following contact information: name, e-mail address, country, ZIP/postal code, a brief summary of your professional background (current occupation & networking objectives) and choose a password.
Once a user, you may provide additional information in the Profile section describing your skills, professional experiences and networking objectives. Providing additional information beyond what is required at registration is entirely optional, but enables you to better identify yourself and find new opportunities in the e-BIM system.
Information about your Contacts
In order to invite others to connect with you directly in e-BIM, you will their names and e-mail addresses. This information will be used by e-BIM to send your invitation including a message that you write. The names and e-mail addresses of people that you invite will be used only to send your invitation and reminders.
You may also choose to manually enter or upload data about your contacts into the private "My Contacts" section of our Web site. All information entered there will only be viewable by you and will not be searchable by others in the e-BIM network without your permission.
Cookies & Log Files:
One type of cookie, known as a "persistent" cookie, is set once you've logged in to your e-BIM account. The next time you visit the e-BIM Web site, the persistent cookie will allow us to recognize you as an existing user so you will not need to log in before using the service. In order to access or change any of your private information (like a credit card number), however, you must log in securely again with your password even if your computer contains your persistent cookie. Additionally, if you log out of the e-BIM site you will need to re-enter your password the next time you visit in order to log in to your account. Another type of cookie, called a "session" cookie, is used to identify a particular visit to the e-BIM site. Session cookies expire after a short time or when you close your web browser.
Due to the communications standards on the Internet, when you visit the e-BIM Web site we automatically receive the URL of the site from which you came and the site to which you are going when you leave e-BIM. We also receive the Internet protocol (IP) address of your computer (or the proxy server you use to access the World Wide Web), your computer operating system and type of Web browser you are using, as well as the name of your ISP. This information is used to analyze overall trends to help us improve the e-BIM service. The linkage between your IP address and your personally identifiable information is never shared with third-parties without your permission or except when required by law.
We allow other companies, called ad networks, to serve advertisements to e-BIM users. Ad networks include third party ad servers, ad agencies, ad technology vendors and research firms. e-BIM may "target" some ads to users that fit a certain general profile-for example, "product managers in Texas." e-BIM does NOT use personally identifiable information to target ads.
To deliver these ads properly, e-BIM may include a file, called a Web beacon, from these ad networks within pages served by e-BIM so the networks may provide anonymous, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for advertisers as well as to target ads to you while you visit other Web sites.
Because your Web browser must request these advertisements and Web beacons from the ad network's servers, these companies can view, edit or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a Web page from their site.
These general targets may also be used by ad networks to display targeted ads on other Web sites as a substitute for random, irrelevant ads. You will never see additional ads as a result of being a e-BIM user and e-BIM never provides personally identifiable information to any advertiser nor any third party.
You may opt-out of use of Web beacons in e-BIM pages that you view and of placement of a cookie by ad networks in your browser. To opt-out click here and go to the "Advertising" section at the bottom and change the setting there to "No".
If you opt-out you will lose the potential benefit of receiving ads that are more targeted to your interests.
Children are not eligible to use our service and we ask that minors (under the age of 18) do not submit any personal information to us or use the service.
e-BIM is an online service dedicated to helping all types of professionals more effectively connect with one another. The personally identifiable information you choose to provide on this site is used to help you describe yourself to other users. Other information, which does not personally identify you as an individual, is collected by e-BIM and its affiliates from the site (such as, by way of example, patterns of utilization) and is exclusively owned by e-BIM. This information can be utilized by e-BIM in such manner as e-BIM, in its sole discretion, deems appropriate.
e-BIM will communicate with you through e-mail and notices posted on this Web site. These include a series of up to five welcome e-mails, which help inform new users about various features of the service. Please be aware that you will always receive certain e-mails from e-BIM related to the proper functioning of your account, such as e-mail notices when another user in your network sends you an opportunity. e-BIM may send you promotional information unless you have opted out of receiving such information. If you wish to opt-out of receiving promotional e-mails, please send a request to customer_service@e-BIM.com.
Information you provide at registration or in your Profile section is also used to customize your experience on the Web site. For example, when you login to your account we will display the screen names of new users who have recently joined your network.
e-BIM takes the privacy of our users very seriously. We will never sell, rent or otherwise provide your personally identifiable information to any third parties for marketing purposes. We will only share your personally identifiable with third parties to carry out your instructions and to provide specific services. These third parties do not retain, share or store any personally identifiable information except to provide these services and are bound by strict confidentiality agreements which limit their use of such information.
e-BIM offers a "public profile" feature, which allows users to publish portions of their e-BIM profile, including your "name," but not your "e-mail address" to the public Internet. Users may opt-out of this feature; however e-BIM does not warrant how third-party search engines will update their cache.
We may provide aggregated data about the usage of our services to third-parties for such purposes as we deem, in our sole discretion, to be appropriate. We may segment our users by role (i.e. product managers, vice presidents), industry, geographic location, company. If you would like to be excluded from the aggregated research or products based upon aggregated data about our users' activities on the site, please e-mail customer service.
Communications Between Users:
Many e-mails you initiate through e-BIM, an invitation sent to a non-user for instance, will list your e-mail address and name in the header of the message. E-mails you initiate may also provide aggregate information about your network (for instance how many people are in your network), but will never list the people to whom you're directly connected. Other communications that you initiate through the e-BIM Web site, like a request for contact, will list your name as the initiator but will not include your personal contact information. Your contact information will only be shared with another user if both of you have indicated that you would like to establish contact with each other. Legal Disclaimer:
It is possible that we may need to disclose personal information when required by law. We will disclose such information wherein we have a good-faith belief that it is necessary to comply with a court order, ongoing judicial proceeding, or other legal process served on our company or to exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.
Accessing and Changing Your Account Information
In order to secure your personal information, access to your data on e-BIM is password-protected, and sensitive data (such as credit card information) is protected by SSL encryption when it is exchanged between your Web browser and our Web site.
