  1. Summary

At GreenWay DNA (“GreenWay”), we believe in a moral compass and value-matched expectations regarding your GreenWay experience.  This is supported by an understanding that clarity and honesty is necessary when it comes to your interactions with us. 

In furtherance of our efforts towards clarity, this Cookie Policy shall explain what “cookies” are and how we use cookies and similar technologies when you visit our website, online pages, features, and/or interact with GreenWay online content, advertisements or marketing emails (collectively, the "Services"). 

To be clear, cookies collect information and data points as you navigate throughout the internet, and for our purposes here, the Services.  Please give this Cookie Policy the review that it needs so that you are clear as to how they work and what they mean to you as one who is interacting with our Services.  Clarity around what information is collected using cookies and how GreenWay uses that information is our goal here.

Your use of our Services (and particularly by visiting www.greenwaydna.com (the “Site”)), you are agreeing that we can use the cookies described herein.

Naturally, if you have any questions regarding GreenWay’s policy on cookies please contact GreenWay as per the information set forth at the very end of this Cookie Policy (see below).

  1. What are Cookies?

A “cookie” is a string of information (small text files) which assigns you a unique identifier that is stored on your browsing devise (computer, mobile device, smartphone, etc.).  Your browser then provides that unique identifier to use each time you submit a query to the Site.  They are identifiers that help websites, such as our Site, know if the browser device has visited them before.  We use cookies on the Site to, among other things, keep track of Services you have used, record registration information, record your user preferences, keep you logged into the Site, facilitate purchase procedures, and track the pages on the Site that you visit.  Cookies help us understand how the Site is being used and improve your user experience.

  1. Types of Cookies.

There are (a) session cookies, and (b) persistent cookies.  A session cookie lasts for essentially one “session,” where a session is defined as that period of time when your browser is open and subsequently closed.  Thus, a session cookie lasts while your browser is open and is automatically deleted when you close your browser. 

A persistent cookie, on the other hand and as the name suggests, lasts until you or your browser either takes an action to delete the cookies, or the cookie, as programed, expires on its own.

Cookies set by us or the Site are called "first-party cookies," while cookies set by parties other than GreenWay are called "third party cookies."  The parties that set third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the Site and when it visits certain other websites or mobile apps.  We do not manage third-party cookies, nor do we control how third-party cookies are used.  For more information on third-party cookies, you are encouraged to check the third party’s website.  Some cookies are associated with your account and Personal Information (as defined in the Privacy Statement), while others are not.  Both first party and third-party cookies can be serve a number of different functions, such as analytics, marketing and advertising.

  1. Why do we use cookies?

Cookies help us understand how our Services are being used, letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your browsing experience.  We generally treat information collected by cookies and other technologies as non-Personal information.  However, to the extent that IP addresses or similar identifiers are considered Personal Information by local law, we also treat these identifiers as Personal Information.  If we combine non-Personal Information with Personal Information the combined information will be treated as Personal Information for as long as it remains combined.

We use both session cookies and persistent cookies to improve the security of your Personal Information enhance the functionality of certain features and improve performance of our Services.

We also use advertising cookies, beacons, pixels and/or tags to assist with marketing our products and services to interested individuals.  We may present you with an advertisement when you leave our Services because we think you might be interested in GreenWay.  Cookies also help ensure marketing you see online is more relevant to you and your interests.

Generally speaking, you can enable, disable or even delete cookies by way of the browser you are using currently to view the Site.  Simply follow the instructions provided by your browser.  Such instructions are typically located under or within the “Help”, “Tools” or “Edit” settings menu.  Disabling the cookies, however, may result in curtailing your access to certain pages or secure areas on the Site.  In essence, you may not be able to access secure areas of the Services and other parts of the Services may also not work properly.

Many browser developers provide helpful information about cookie management, including, but not limited to:

  • Google Chrome
  • Internet Explorer
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Safari (Desktop)
  • Safari (Mobile)
  • Android Browser
  • Opera
  • Opera Mobile

  1. Third Party Cookies

Cookies that are placed on your browsing device by a third party can be managed through your browser (as described above) or by checking the third party’s website for more information about cookie management and how to “opt-out” of receiving cookies from them.

  1. What other similar technologies does GreenWay use?

In addition to cookies, we may use web beacons, pixel tags, and other tracking technologies on the Site to help customize the Site and improve your experience.  See below for more detail, but briefly, a “web beacon” or “pixel tag” is tiny object or image embedded in a web page or email.  They are used to track the number of users who have visited particular pages and viewed emails and acquire other statistical data.  They collect only a limited set of data, such as a cookie number, time and date of page or email view, and a description of the page or email on which they reside.  Web beacons and pixel tags cannot be declined.  You can, however, limit their use by controlling the cookies that interact with them.

  • Web Beacons: Web beacons, or “clear gifs,” are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies.  In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive or device, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages.  We use beacons for similar reasons as cookies, though beacons primarily help us better manage content on our Services by informing us which content is effective.
  • 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 Services.  Flash cookies are commonly used for advertisements and videos.  We will generally refer to cookies, web beacons, and flash cookies as “cookies” in this Policy.
  • Pixels: A “pixel” or “tag” can be placed on a website or within an email for the purposes of tracking your interactions with our websites or when emails are opened or accessed. Pixels are often used in combination with cookies.
