The Services — as well as certain third parties that provide content and other functionality on the Services — use a variety of technologies to learn more about how people use the Services and the Internet. This section provides more information about some of those technologies and how they work.

  • Cookies. Cookies are small text files used to store information about users on the users’ own computer. Cookies may be used to recognise you as the same user across different visits to the website. Knowing how a user is using the Services through cookies enables us to tailor our content and Services to meet visitors’ needs more effectively. It also enables us to improve the quality of your visit by making sure that the Services are properly formatted for your computer and web browser.

  • Web beacons. Web beacons can be embedded in web pages, videos, or emails, and can allow a web server to read certain types of information from your browser, check whether you have viewed a particular web page or email message, and determine, among other things, the time and date on which you viewed the Web beacon, the IP address of your computer, and the URL of the web page from which the Web beacon was viewed.

Protection of Information

BHM GEOTECHNICAL uses industry standard security measures to protect the information under our control, including firewalls and other security measures.

Do Not Track Signal

Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to the websites with which the user communicates. We do not currently take action in response to those signals. If an industry standard on responding to such signals is established and accepted, we may reassess how to respond to those signals.
