Shield Technologies recognises the importance of protecting the privacy of personally identifiable information collected about visitors to our sites. As a general policy, no personally identifiable information, such as your name, address or email address, is automatically collected from visitors to our sites. Personally identifiable information about visitors to our sites is collected only when knowingly and voluntarily submitted via registration or contact forms. We may collect certain nonpersonal information to optimize our Web pages for your computer (i.e., the identity of your Internet browser, the type of operating system you use, your IP address and the domain name of your Internet service provider). We may use such nonpersonal information for internal purposes, including but not limited to improving the content of our sites.
In those instances when we do collect personally identifiable information, the following policies apply:
Shield Technologies will notify you when we are collecting personally identifiable information about you and how we intend to use it. For example, we may need to collect such information to provide you with information or a product you requested.
Use and Security
Please remember that any information posted on bulletin boards becomes public information. You should use caution when sharing information as any of it can be collected and used by people you may not know. While Shield Technologies strives to protect and respect your privacy, we can not guarantee the security of any information you disclose in a chat room or bulletin board and you do so at your own risk.
Shield Technologies may use personally identifiable information in aggregate form to make our sites better and more responsive to the needs of our visitors.
Personal information may be disclosed in special situations where Shield Technologies has reason to believe that doing so is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against anyone damaging, injuring, or interfering (intentionally or unintentionally) with Shield Technologies’ rights, property, users, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities. Also, Shield Technologies may reveal information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
Shield Technologies maintains appropriate safeguards to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of personally identifiable information submitted to our sites, and periodically reviews and updates its security measures in light of current technologies. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure. Although Shield Technologies strives to protect your personal information, we can not ensure or warranty the security of any information you may transmit to us or from our online products and services. This is done so at your own risk. Once we do receive your transmission, however, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
