Changes To Our Privacy Policy

Twice per year cPanel reviews its privacy policy for updates.  While the last update of our privacy policy was in April of 2020, it was reviewed again in the fall of 2020, but no updates were made.  We reviewed our privacy policy in January of 2021, and made the following updates. They are effective as set out in the Privacy Policy, and your contract with us.

  • Typographical errors were corrected
  • The “cpanel.live” site was added to the definition of “Corporate Sites”
  • We’ve expanded the list of items that are included in our disclosure of activity monitoring.  In past versions of the privacy policy, this list only included cookies.  We’ve added additional activity monitoring technologies to Schedule 3.  Accordingly, the Privacy Policy was updated to make the scope of these technologies clear.  We’ve added the following additional activity monitoring technologies:
    • cpanel.live was added to hotjar tracking;
    • Reddit pixel tracking was added to cpanel.live, cpanel.net and webprossummit.com;

  • We added a description of how we use “Google Remarketing.”
  • Schedule 1 (Personal Information Collected) was updated to disclose collection and use of certain optional personal information that may be collected from Beta Program participants.

cPanel cares about how your information is used.  If you have any questions about these updates, our privacy policy, or our use of information in general, please email privacy@cpanel.net.
