Anaylyzing Website Usage Data

We use cookies to analyze the activity on our website so we know how our visitors and members are using our service. This allows us to make improvements or corrections as needed.

Backing Up Server Data

We use cookies on the admin side for establishing connections with third-party vendors for sending and receiving backups. These vendors include Google Drive, Dropbox, Amazon S3 and phpseclib for FTP accounts. Additionally, cookies may be set for potentially fixing cron requests at erratic servers.
