BMC Software Cookie Notice

BMC Software uses cookies on its website.  You can find out more about cookies and how to control them in the information below.

By using BMC website, you accept the use of cookies in accordance with this Cookie Notice.

If you do not accept the use of cookies please disable them following the instructions in this Cookie Notice, by using the Cookie Consent Tool or by changing your browser settings so that cookies from this website cannot be placed on your computer or mobile device.

What is a cookie?

Cookies are a small amount of data generated by a website and downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Such cookies are sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to any other visited website that recognizes that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognize a user’s device.

Cookies do lots of different jobs. The most common use is to store a user’s login information at a specific site, e.g., username and password after the user clicks on "Remember me on this computer," which generates a login cookie. Some cookies are used by e-commerce sites to store items placed in a shopping cart. Other cookies allow you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences and search settings, and generally improving your user experience, such as remembering recently-viewed stock quotes.  Many cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often. They also help ensure that online advertisements are more relevant to a user of a website and the user’s interests by creating the user’s profile which is later used to send ad messages in line with the preferences shown by the user during navigation of the web.

For further information on cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your device and how to manage and delete them, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org/.
