"Niet-persoonlijke gegevens" betekent alle informatie die niet resulteert in de identificatie van een persoon.Furthermore, BIM&CO can use tools and software to collect non-personal data via the User’s terminal and in compliance with existing legislation.
“Non-personal data” refers to any information which does not lead to an individual being identified.
This data is anonymous, processed in aggregate form, and is not related to any of the User’s personal data. This can include, for example, information about BIM objects and projects, and it is used, as with the processing of personal data via BIM&CO Analytics (referred to in paragraph 1.9), for analytical and statistical purposes and/or to enable BIM&CO to improve its services.
Personal data is generally collected for BIM&CO’s activities, such as improved marketing and advertising campaigns, the ongoing development of the Platform’s functionalities and services to better serve the needs of Users, and compliance with reporting obligations pursuant to the act.
Depending on the case, it can be used for the following:
BIM&CO may also use the User’s email address for administrative purposes or other non-marketing objectives (for example, to inform them of important changes to the Platform, or for other reasons outlined in Article 1.9).
The data provided by Users is retained by BIM&CO for the entire duration of the contractual relationship which begins when a User Account is created. The data is then retained for archival purposes.
Under the existing regulations, the user remains in control of their personal data, and as such is able to monitor its existence, destination, content and extent at any given time.
Under the Data Protection Act and the GDPR, Users can freely exercise the following rights via the service described below:
The possibility of obtaining from the data controller confirmation that the personal data has been processed, and where applicable, the possibility to learn about the processing purposes, the type of data used, the recipients of the data, the length of the data’s retention or criteria used to determine this duration, the right to request the rectification and erasure of data, the blocking of its processing and the possibility to refuse it, the right to lodge a complaint with the CNIL, and even information relating to any transfer of personal data to a third country.Right of rectification
The right to obtain from the data controller the updating or rectification of inaccurate personal data.Right to erase

The right to obtain from the data controller the blocking of the processing where the processing of the data is unlawful, where the data is no longer needed for processing purposes but is still useful for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or where the data subject opposes the processing under their right of opposition.Right to data portability

BIM&CO is committed to ensuring the protection and security of the personal data that the user chooses to disclose, so as to guarantee its confidentiality and to prevent it from being falsified, damaged, destroyed or disclosed to unauthorised third parties.
As a result, the Company uses physical, electronic and procedural safeguards which are, in principle, sufficient to protect this data against any misuse or loss, and against any unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration or destruction.
However, while BIM&CO makes every effort to protect personal data, it cannot guarantee complete protection against errors occurring during the transmission of personal data given the unavoidable risks of transferring data over the Internet. This would be beyond BIM&CO’s reasonable control.
Because personal data can be confidential, access to it is restricted to employees or service providers who need to have this information in order to carry out their duties.
Anyone with access to Users’ personal data is bound by a duty of confidentiality and is subject to disciplinary action and/or other sanctions if they fail to meet these obligations.
Please note that the User is responsible for the confidentiality of their password and the information that appears on their account. They therefore agree to keep this password and not share it with anyone else.
BIM&CO may disclose personal information to third parties if it believes that such a disclosure is necessary for technical reasons (hosting services, for example) or for protecting the Company’s legal interests (in the event of an acquisition or merger with a third company or a total or partial liquidation, for example).
By using the Platform therefore, the User agrees to BIM&CO sending their personal data to the aforementioned third parties and acknowledges that it will be processed in accordance with their own privacy policies.
BIM&CO may also disclose such personal information if it constitutes a legal obligation or if it believes in good faith that such a disclosure is necessary in the context of legal proceedings (warrant, summons or other court order, for example) or to protect the rights, property or personal safety of the Company, its clients or the public.
These transfers can be carried out using any method deemed appropriate by BIM&CO and in accordance with applicable law.
