At Vivaldi Technologies AS (“Vivaldi”), protecting your privacy is one of our top priorities. We strictly protect the security of your personal information within Vivaldi’s websites. We do not share or sell your data with any third parties and protect user data from disclosure, with exceptions only requested by law or court order.

Types of data we collect and its purpose

Vivaldi may collect visitor statistics using Matomo analytics software. The visitor statistics may include information about the visitor’s IP-addresses, usage patterns, the point in time the visitor visits our websites on and and information about the browser and operating system the visitor uses. This information is used solely for statistical purpose. It cannot be used to identify individuals as the data is anonymized. We use these statistics to improve and optimize usability of our products and services for our users. These statistics help us determine where we need to improve and prioritize our resources accordingly.

The websites may use cookies. A cookie is a tiny data file that resides on your computer, mobile phone or other device, and allows us to recognize you as a visitor when you return to the website using the same computer and web browser. This allows us to provide a more customized experience for our visitors. You can remove or block cookies using the settings in your browser. We keep the contact information you provide us with in your account profile. We may use your contact information to inform you about important information concerning our services. Additionally, we may contact you with information regarding our other products and services. You can always opt out of receiving these types of emails from us.


Vivaldi has strict restrictions on access to user data. Only a limited number of Vivaldi’s employees have access.


Vivaldi will not transfer any personal data to third parties except as required by law or law enforcement.

Vivaldi utilizes Cloudflare CDN in order to provide efficient delivery of our content to our users around the world, as well as StackPath for a faster download of the Vivaldi browser application.

Vivaldi’s websites use a modified version of the Akismet plugin to mitigate spam. The plugin has been modified so as not to send any personal information to the service (only the username and content of posts are provided to Akismet).

Privacy policy of these services can be found here:

Retention and deletion

Vivaldi will delete personal information when all purposes of the personal information processing have been fulfilled, and when deletion is allowed pursuant to applicable laws and regulations.


Procedures are reviewed regularly to ensure that the policies are followed. Any non-conformance regarding the policies will be corrected without unnecessary delay.
