Cookie Usage

To support our website users and visitors and deliver rich digital experiences, ConnectWise uses different types of cookies across our web properties. This page provides an overview of these cookies, their purpose, and the efforts ConnectWise has put in place to ensure our cookie policies comply with applicable laws, including the GDPR before its implementation date in May 2018.

To the extent that cookies allow to identify a particular website user, the GDPR requires us to be more transparent about our usage of cookies and your rights, and ensure you have effective choices.

This cookie notice explains how ConnectWise Services LLC ("ConnectWise", "we", "us", and "ours") use cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you visit our websites at and our [MSP platforms] ("Website""). It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them.


We are currently evaluating ConnectWise-owned domains to ensure we are protecting the rights of all visitors and users by being more transparent about the types of cookies we use and your choices. We will be making additional updates and enhancements to our websites in the coming months to ensure users have the ability to control the use of cookies prior to GDPR’s implementation date of May 25th, 2018.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small piece of data that is stored locally on a computer or mobile device which allows a website to “remember” your actions, activity, or preferences over time. Most browsers support cookies, but also allow users to decline or delete them whenever they’d like. Cookies are used for many different functions including auto-filling forms, counting website visitors, personalizing content, serving relevant ads to you, recording user preferences, and for authentication and security.

Cookies can be classified as follows:

  • Session Cookie – a temporary cookie which expires and is permanently deleted when a browser is closed and the current session ends.
  • Persistent Cookie – these cookies remain on the device and can span multiple sessions or website visits and will be deleted based on a predetermined expiration date specified in the cookie.
  • First-Party Cookie – cookies which are stored by the website domain being visited by the user.
  • Third-Party Cookie – cookies which are stored by a different domain and are referenced by the domain being visited. For example, if you visit a website and another entity sets a cookie through that website, this would be a third-party cookie.

The information below provides an overview of the types of cookies ConnectWise leverages, how they are used, and what steps ConnectWise is taking to ensure our cookie policies comply with the GDPR prior to May of this year.

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?

Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs"). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Websites or opened an email that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, [to track what emails have been opened by recipients, manage email communications to subscribers by informing us what content is most effective and improve marketing campaigns by tying together information gathered by web beacons to our customers’ personal information. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

Do you serve targeted advertising?

Third parties may serve cookies on your computer or mobile device to serve advertising through our Websites. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. This can be accomplished by them using cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to you. The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details or other personally identifying details unless you choose to provide these.
