1. What Data is Collected?

To buy from this website, you must complete the checkout form and provide certain personally identifiable information. During checkout, you are required to give contact information (such as name, email address, and mailing address). We use this information for billing purposes, to fulfill your orders, and to contact you about the products and services on our site in which you have expressed interest. This information is collected so that we are able to ship products to you and maintain a record of your orders for customer service purposes. As is true of most websites, we also gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We do not link this automatically collected data to personally identifiable information.

2. How Do We Use This Data?

We share aggregated demographic information about our user base with our partners and advertisers. This information does not identify individual users. We do not link aggregate user data with personally identifiable information. We do not share personally identifiable information except as specifically mentioned elsewhere in this statement. For example, we use an outside credit card processing company to bill you for the products purchased on this website. This credit card processor does not share or use personally identifiable information for any other purposes. We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law, when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our company.

3. Surveys and Promotions

From time-to-time we may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on our site. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code). We may use a third party service provider to conduct these surveys or contests; that company will be prohibited from using our users’ personally identifiable information for any other purpose.

4. Cookies

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. We use cookies on this site, which are indirectly linked to the personally identifiable information you submit while on our site. Specifically, we use cookies for session security purposes. A token identifier is stored in the cookie when a user logs into the website, and then on each page that same user uses during that session. The token is compared to a session log created in our database to ensure that our server is still communicating with the same client. While the cookies themselves don’t contain any personal information, it does contain a code that is used as a unique identifier of a particular client during a particular login. We use session ID cookies and persistent cookies. A session ID cookie expires when you close you browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” file. If you reject cookies, you will not be able to use our website.

5. Security

The security of your personal information is of utmost importance to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our website, you can send an email to us at info@shieldtechnologyinc.com.

6. Privacy Policy Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement on the homepage and other places we deem appropriate so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, or by means of a notice on our home page. If you have any questions or suggestions regarding our privacy policy, please contact us.
