At Firmex, we believe in being clear and open about how we collect and use data related to you. In the spirit of transparency, this policy provides detailed information about how and when we use cookies. This cookie policy applies to any Firmex.com and any Firmex products or services that link to this policy or incorporates it by reference.

Does Firmex use cookies?
Yes. As described in our Privacy Policy, we use cookies and other technologies to ensure everyone who uses Firmex has the best possible experience. Cookies also help us keep your account safe. By continuing to visit or use our services, you are agreeing to the use of cookies and similar technologies for the purposes we describe in this policy.

What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables Firmex features and functionality. For example, cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to Firmex and our sites generally, and even help us know if someone attempts to access your account from a different device.

When does Firmex place cookies?
We use cookies on our site and mobile applications. Any browser visiting these sites will receive cookies from us. We also place cookies in your browser when you visit non-Firmex sites that host our plugins (for example, Firmex’s “Share” button on Resources or The Deal Room) or tags.

What types of cookies does Firmex use?
We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to Firmex or interact with our services without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by Firmex when you return to one of our sites or a partner site that uses our services (for example, our sharing or job application buttons). Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).

What are cookies used for?
Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit Firmex, remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience that’s in line with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions with Firmex faster and more secure.

What is Do Not Track (DNT)?
DNT is a concept that has been promoted by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has been working with industry groups, Internet browsers, technology companies, and regulators to develop a DNT technology standard. While some progress has been made, it has been slow. No standard has been adopted to this date. As such, Firmex does not generally respond to “do not track” signals.

What third-party cookies does Firmex use?
Our cookie table lists some of the third party cookies on our sites. Please note that the names of cookies, pixels and other technologies may change over time.

Controlling cookies
Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings preferences. However, if you limit the ability of websites to set cookies, you may worsen your overall user experience, since it will no longer be personalized to you. It may also stop you from saving customized settings like login information.

What to do if you don’t want cookies to be set or want them to be removed?
If you do not want to receive cookies, you can also change your browser settings on your computer or other device you’re using to access our services. If you use Firmex without changing your browser settings, we’ll assume that you’re happy to receive all cookies on the Firmex website. Most browsers also provide functionality that lets you review and erase cookies, including Firmex cookies. Please note that the Firmex site will not work properly without cookies.
