Cookie Policy

Last Updated: August 29, 2023

Banyan Infrastructure Corporation and its affiliates (collectively, "Banyan," "we", “us” or "our") use three kinds of cookies on our websites (the “Sites”): required, functional, and advertising. You can choose whether functional and advertising cookies apply.  This Cookie Policy describes how we can use cookies and other tracking technologies when you interact with, use, and/or access our products, services, features, or content through, without limitation, our website, platform, applications, business offerings, application programming interfaces (“APIs”), and software provided on or in connection with those  products, services, features, or content (collectively, the “Service”).   This Cookie Policy is incorporated into our Privacy Policy.
By using our Service, you are agreeing that we can use cookies and other tracking technologies described in this Cookie Policy.

What are cookies and how long are they stored?  Cookies are small pieces of information which are issued to your computer, mobile or other device (as the case may be) when you visit a website or access or use a mobile application and which store and sometimes track information about your use of the Service. A number of cookies we use last only for the duration of your session and expire when you close your browser or exit the session (known as “session cookies”). Other cookies are used to remember you when you return to the Service and will last for longer (known as “persistent cookies”). A persistent cookie lasts until you or your browser deletes the cookies or they expire.
Cookies set by us are called “first party cookies”, while cookies set by parties other than Banyan are called “third party cookies”. The parties that set third party cookies can recognize your device, both when you use the Service and when you use other websites or mobile apps. You should check the third party’s website for more information about how they use cookies and other tracking technologies. Both first party and third party cookies can serve a number of different functions, such as analytics, marketing and advertising.

What other similar tracking technologies does Banyan use?  

  • Web Beacons: In addition to cookies, web beacons may be set by us or third parties in respect of your use of the Service. Web beacons are small image files within the content of the Service for analytics purposes so we or third parties can understand which parts of the Service are visited and which functions of the Service are used and whether particular content is of interest.
  • Flash cookies: We may also use so-called “flash cookies” (also known as “Local Shared Objects” or “LSOs”) to collect and store information about your use of our Service.

How do we use cookies?  We use cookies to provide our Service, gather information about your usage patterns when you navigate the Service to enhance your personalized experience, and to understand usage patterns to improve our Service. We also allow certain third parties to place cookies on our Service in order to collect information about your online activities on our Service over time and across different websites you visit. This information is used to provide advertising tailored to your interests on websites you visit, also known as interest based advertising, and to analyze the effectiveness of such advertising.
Usage information may be linked to your account in order to assist Banyan to provide services to your account, for example analyzing data for the purposes of trouble shooting. Banyan will not sell or disclose usage data to any third party unless such usage data has been aggregated or de-identified and is no longer capable of identifying you as an individual.

Cookies on our Sites are generally divided into the following categories:

  1. Required cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website or provide necessary functions relating to the Service you request.
  2. Analytical or performance cookies. These allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. These cookies also allow us to collect statistical information about how you use the Service and where you have come to the Service from, so that we can improve the Service and learn which parts of the Service are most popular with users.
  3. Functionality cookies. These cookies enable helpful but non-essential website functions that improve your website experience. By recognizing you when you return to our website, they may, for example, allow us to personalize our content for you, greet you by name, or remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region). This also enables us to customize elements of the promotional layout and/or content of the pages of the Service. We may also use functional social media plug ins, such as the Facebook “Like” button and Widgets, such as the “Share this” button or interactive mini-programs that run on our site. These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our Service, and may set an identifier to enable the feature to function properly. Such features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Site. Your interactions with these Features are governed by the Privacy Policy of the company providing it.
  4. Targeting cookies. These cookies enable different advertising related functions. They may allow us to record information about your visit to our website, such as pages visited, links followed, and videos viewed so we can make our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.

Analytics. We and our vendors (including but not limited to HubSpot and Google Analytics) may use identifiers and similar tracking technologies to monitor performance and usage on the Site for internal analytics and performance monitoring. These identifiers and similar tracking technologies are used to help the Service collect and store information regarding your visit, such as session state and authentication tokens.

We may use mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our mobile Service on your phone. This software may record information such as how often you use the Application, the events that occur within the Service, aggregated usage, performance data, and where the Service was downloaded from. We do not link the information we store within the analytics software to any personally identifiable information you submit within the mobile Service.

Do Not Track Statement. Some browsers have a “do not track” feature that allows you to tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. At this time, due to a lack of industry standards, we do not respond to browser “do not track” signals.

In all cases, your use of the Service or your giving us personal information after the effective date of any modified Cookie Policy indicates your consent to and acceptance of the modified Cookie Policy.
