This website is owned and run by Kinsta Limited, whose address and other contact details are listed below. We are registered with the Office of the Information Commissioner under registered number ZA290018.

Website visitors

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.

For example, we ask visitors who sign up for WordPress hosting services at Kinsta.com to provide an email address.

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.>
