International Information Transfers
QUIC.cloud is based in the US, and serves the global market. We store data in servers throughout the world. Providing the Service we do requires being able to transfer and/or access information in any location.
QUIC.cloud will adhere to the EU standard contractual clauses or the Privacy Shield Frameworks when sharing personal information that originates in the EEA or Switzerland with something/someone outside of the EEA or Switzerland.
By using QUIC.cloud, providing your information to us, and/or accessing our Website, you are hereby agreeing to allow us to use and transfer your personal information.

LiteSpeed Technologies values your users’ privacy. Although our software does not directly collect any personally identifiable information from visitors to your site, LiteSpeed may still be considered a data processor, as user information may be temporarily cached and/or logged, as outlined in this document.
QUIC.cloud may record IP addresses as a part of normal logging. An access log and an error log may record visitor IP addresses and URL visited. The logs are stored locally on the system where LiteSpeed server software is installed and are not transferred to or accessed by LiteSpeed employees in any way, except as necessary in providing routine technical support if you request it. This logging may be turned off through configuration. It is up to individual server administrators to come up with their own schedule for removing such logs from the file system.
Our cache plugins potentially store a duplicate copy of every web page on display on your site. The pages are stored locally on the system where LiteSpeed server software is installed and are not transferred to or accessed by LiteSpeed employees in any way, except as necessary in providing routine technical support if you request it. All cache files are temporary, and may easily be purged before their natural expiration, if necessary, via a Purge All command. It is up to individual site administrators to come up with their own cache expiration rules.
LSCache for WordPress
In addition to caching, our WordPress plugin has an Image Optimization feature. When optimization is requested, images are transmitted to a remote LiteSpeed server, processed, and then transmitted back for use on your site. LiteSpeed keeps copies of optimized images for 7 days (in case of network stability issues) and then permanently deletes them.
Similarly, the WordPress plugin has a Reporting feature whereby a site owner can transmit an environment report to our server so that we may better provide technical support.
Neither of these features collects any visitor data. Only server and site data is involved.
Sometimes, when you request technical support, LiteSpeed may ask for login credentials to various areas of your site. You may refuse to share such credentials, however refusal may impact LiteSpeed’s ability to provide the requested support services.
Upon completion of a support ticket, LiteSpeed immediately deletes all login credentials you may have shared.
Any user data encountered by LiteSpeed is kept strictly confidential. We never provide your support ticket information to any third party without your explicit consent.
ICANN (The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) may require that we collect registrant data, for the purpose of domain name registration, when a registrant purchases a domain name from ICANN. We will obtain this data via the WHOIS protocol. In certain events, we will need to share this data with ICANN, their registry operators and other contractors that are relevant in providing our domain name services, as well as third parties in necessary circumstances. The data involved includes but is not limited to the domain, user’s name, contact information, and domain name server information.
This policy may be transferred in the event of a merger, sale, change in ownership, or any reorganization of some or all of the business.
