  • internet protocol (IP) addresses
  • browser type
  • Internet Service Provider (ISP)
  • date and time stamps
  • referring/exit pages
  • number of clicks

These items are not part of any information that is personally identifiable.

The data is used to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movement on The Website, address site issues, and malfunctions, and gather demographic information.

Cookies and Web Beacons

The Website uses cookies. These cookies store information, including visitors' preferences and the pages on the website that the visitor accessed or visited. We use the data to optimize the users' experience by customizing our web page content based on visitors' browser types and other information.

Hostphyl does not use Web Beacons, as we view them as highly invasive to your privacy online. We only use cookies to store your site preferences, to remember you if you have an account on the site, site analytics, and other uses listed above.

You can choose to disable cookies through your browser options. Please consult your browser's website if you would like more detailed information about cookie management with specific web browsers.

Hostphyl may collect Personally Identifiable Information through contact forms placed on your name, email address, job title, company name, your interest in our products, and your message to us. We only use this data to communicate with you regarding your query to us. We do not not sell, rent, auction, or share this data with third parties.

Client Data Sharing

Data that Hostphyl collects will be shared with the entities or individuals associated with The Website and The Website Owner, including, but not limited to: business/entity staff, business/entity owners, and any other person or entity directly related to this website that is authorized to view the data. These individuals and entities must follow this privacy policy and manage data accordingly. Access to data will be restricted if these individuals and entities do not agree to follow this privacy policy to its fullest extent.

Client Data Collection

The Website Owner may choose to collect additional Non-Personally Identifiable Information and Personally Identifiable Information from you to provide their products, goods, and services to you, separate from the data that Hostphyl collects. Hostphyl has no control over what types of data The Website Owner may collect or how it will be used. The Website will include a separate Privacy Policy regarding the data collected by The Website Owner if necessary.

Legal Basis for Data Collection

Hostphyl's legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described in this Privacy Policy depends on the Personal Information we collect and the specific context in which we collect the information:

  • Hostphyl needs to perform a contract with you.
  • You have given consent to Hostphyl to do so.
  • Processing your personal information is in the legitimate interests of Hostphyl.
  • Hostphyl needs to comply with the law.

Hostphyl will keep your personal information only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. We will retain and use your information only to the extent required to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and ensure we're enforcing our policies.

Third-Party Analytics

Hostphyl uses external tools such as Plausible Analytics (opens in a new tab) to ensure performance, stability, and other metrics listed in this privacy policy's 'Cookies and Web Beacons' Section. However, we actively avoid using tools that compromise your privacy and track you online such as Google Analytics. We only use products that use a privacy-first approach.

Hostphyl is committed to Privacy First on the web and the internet at large and is ready to search for other tools that meet this standard if our current tools change their data collection and privacy policy.

Third-Party Cookies

Our hosting, analytics, and infrastructure partners may use cookies to enhance performance, enable content caching, and more. We have no control over these cookies.

Hostphyl minimizes use of cookies in our tools where possible to increase site vistors' privacy and only employs them when absolutely necessary. We try to use tools and platforms that use other non-privacy-invading methods of collecting necessary data.

Third-Party Privacy Policies

The following is a list of our current tools and hosting partners and links to their privacy policies.

Third-Party Advertising

Hostphyl does not show advertisements or use advertising networks on websites under its control. Not only is advertising an extreme annoyance on the web and privacy-invasive, but also, our clients expect professional, ad-free designs that conform to their brand and goals. Therefore, advertisments do not fit into our customer’s goals, expectations, user experience, or our revenue model.

The Website Owner may run advertising campaigns for The Website. Hostphyl does not participate in these campaigns and has no control over their scope, outcome, platform, data collected, or otherwise.

Children's Information

An additional priority is adding protection for children while using the internet. We strongly encourage parents and guardians to observe, participate in, monitor, and guide their online activity.

Hostphyl does not knowingly collect any Personal Identifiable Information from children under 13. If you believe that your child provided this kind of information on our website, we strongly encourage you to contact us immediately, and we will do our best to remove such information from our records quickly.

Online Privacy Policy Only

Our Privacy Policy applies only to our online activities and is only valid for visitors to The Website regarding the information shared with and collected by Hostphyl on The Website. This policy does not apply to any information collected offline or via channels other than this website.


Hostphyl reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to change or modify or to add or remove portions of this Privacy Policy at any time ("Updates"). You will be deemed to have accepted any Update by continuing to use The Website.
