Your Kirby installation

We are not responsible how you handle data privacy on your own Kirby-powered website(s). You are your own data controller and if you are located in the EU or if you have customers in the EU, you must make sure that your site is GDPR-compliant.

The Kirby Panel is designed with data privacy in mind though. The Panel does not communicate with third-party services or our own servers in any form. There are no trackers, no analytics and no cookies except those related to sessions and user management. We have no access to your Panel, to your data, to your server or to your users. We also don't use external services to provide webfonts, JavaScript libraries or any other assets for the Panel. Everything runs on your server and stays under your control.

Make sure to always use HTTPS on your site in order to encrypt login credentials for the Panel and for any other data transmission.

Questions & Feedback

We try to keep our privacy policy as transparent and easy to understand as possible. Please let us know if we can improve it further or if you have any other questions:


We will constantly check and update this privacy policy if necessary.
