Cookie Policy


Effective : January, 2022


This Cookie Policy explains when and why cookies are used by FirstPlanit Limited (collectively, FirstPlanit, we, us or our) on our website http://www.firstplanit.com (Our Site), associated advertisements and related services, including emails, newsletters, and on certain partner websites that we do not own or operate but with whom we have agreements.


WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Cookies are text files, containing small amounts of information, which are downloaded to your browsing device (such as a computer or smartphone) when you visit a website, if you agree to their use. Cookies can be recognized by the website that downloaded them or other websites that use the same cookies. This helps websites know if the browsing device has visited them before. Cookies help us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our Site and also allows us to improve our Site.


WHAT TYPES OF COOKIES DOES FIRSTPLANIT USE?

FirstPlanit primarily uses strictly necessary cookies but may from time to time introduce session cookies and/or targeting cookies in order to improve your experience in using the Service and to allow FirstPlanit to build up information about its audience. You can turn off specific types of cookies as detailed further below.


The type of cookies used on most websites can generally be put into one of six categories: Session, Strictly Necessary, Persistent, Tailored Content, and Targeting. In order to provide you with the best browsing experience and to improve our Site, Firstplanit may use a variety of these cookies on the platform. You can find out more about the cookies we use in the category sections below.


SESSION COOKIE

Session cookies are temporary cookies that remain in your browser or device until you leave the site. They are then deleted from your device once you leave the Service


STRICTLY NECESSARY COOKIES

These cookies are essential, as they enable you to move around the platform and use its features, such as accessing secure areas. Without these cookies, some operations of our Site, such as when you wish to pay for our subscription services, can't be provided.


PERSISTENT COOKIES

Persistent cookies remain in your browser or device for much longer - they remain there until you delete them or they reach their expiry date, depending on the cookie. These may, for example, be used to remember your preferences when you browse or purchase items using our Site, recognize you on your return, and enhance your experience on our Site. Use of a persistent cookie may be linked to personal information while interacting with an account registered on our Site, such as when you choose to store your usernames so that you do not have to enter them each time you access your account. A persistent cookie will be stored on your computer, which is linked to your account information. If you reject the persistent cookie, you may still use our Site but you will be limited in some areas of it.


TAILORED CONTENT COOKIES

Tailored content cookies help our Site provide enhanced features and display content in a way that is relevant to you. These cookies help our Site determine what information to show you based on how you have used the platform previously. These cookies do not track your browsing activity on other websites.


TARGETING COOKIES

These cookies are used to deliver advertisements that are more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. They remember that you have visited a website and this information may be shared with other organizations such as advertisers. This means after you have been to our Site you may see some advertisements about our Site and the services provided on it elsewhere on the Internet.


HOW LONG WILL COOKIES STAY ON MY BROWSING DEVICE?

The length of time a cookie will stay on your browsing device depends on whether it is a "persistent" or "session" cookie. Session cookies will only stay on your device until you stop browsing. Persistent cookies stay on your browsing device until they expire or are deleted.


FIRST AND THIRD-PARTY COOKIES

First party cookies are cookies that belong to us, while third-party cookies are cookies that another party places on your browsing device through our Site. For example, a third-party website will place a cookie on your browsing device if you click on the third party-website link when browsing our Site.


Third parties who may use cookies on our Site may include, for example, advertising networks and providers of external web traffic analysis services such as Google and Facebook.


To deactivate the use of third-party cookies, you may visit your account preferences page to manage the use of these types of cookies.


COOKIE PREFERENCES

At the moment Firstplanit runs only on cookies that are necessary for the site to function properly. Please visit our cookie preferences page for more information here


HOW TO CONTROL AND DELETE COOKIES THROUGH YOUR BROWSER

The browser you are using to view our Site can also enable, disable, or delete cookies. To do this, follow the instructions provided by your browser (usually located within the "Help," "Tools" or "Edit" facility). Please note that if you set your browser to disable cookies, you may not be able to access certain parts of our Site, for example to use the functionality of our Site to assess a construction project. Other parts of our Site may also not work properly. You can find out more information about how to change your browser cookie settings at www.allaboutcookies.org. Please be aware that if cookies are disabled, not all features of our Site may operate as intended.


DOES THIS POLICY CHANGE?

We may change this Cookie Policy at any time. Please take a look at the date at the top of this page to see when this Cookie Policy was last updated. Any changes in this Cookie Policy will become effective when we make the revised Cookie Policy available on the Service.


DO NOT TRACK RESPONSE

Certain web browsers may allow you to enable a "do not track" option that sends signals to the websites you visit indicating that you do not want your online activities tracked. This is different from blocking cookies as browsers with the "do not track" option selected may still accept cookies. Right now, there is no industry standard for how companies should respond to "do not track" signals, although one may be adopted in the future.


We hope that this policy helps you understand our use of cookies. If you have any further queries, please contact us at info@firstplanit.com and be sure to include "Cookie Policy" in the subject line.
