Like most website operators, Kinsta Ltd collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Kinsta Ltd’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Kinsta Ltd’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Kinsta Ltd may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Kinsta Ltd also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Kinsta Ltd’s blogs. Kinsta Ltd only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Any personal information which is collected by Kinsta Ltd will be used by us only in accordance with current data protection legislation.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Kinsta Ltd’s websites choose to interact with Kinsta Ltd in ways that require Kinsta Ltd to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Kinsta Ltd gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for WordPress hosting services at Kinsta.com to provide an email address.
Those who engage in transactions with Kinsta Ltd – by purchasing access to the Akismet comment spam prevention service, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Kinsta Ltd collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Kinsta Ltd.
Kinsta Ltd does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Kinsta Ltd discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Kinsta’s behalf or to provide services available at Kinsta’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Kinsta’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
Kinsta will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Kinsta Ltd discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Kinsta Ltd believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Kinsta Ltd, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Kinsta Ltd website and have supplied your email address, Kinsta Ltd may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Kinsta Ltd and our products.
We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Kinsta Ltd takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
Comments and other content submitted to our Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
