Effective date: October 1, 2018
We collect the same basic information that most websites collect. We use common internet technologies, such as cookies and web server logs. This is stuff we collect from everybody, whether they have an account or not.
This information includes the visitor’s browser type, referring site, the date and time of each visitor request. We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.
We collect this information to better understand how our website visitors use PhishShield, and to monitor and protect the security of the website.
If you create an account, we require basic information at the time of account creation. You will create a password, set up your security image, and we will also ask for you email address. We limit what information we collect to what is necessary to operate PhishShield. Your email and password is used to authenticate your identity, and your security image is used so that you can verify email that is sent to you.
"User Personal Information" is any information about one of our users which could, alone or together with other information, personally identify him or her. User Personal Information includes Personal Data as defined in the General Data Protection Regulation.
If you are a child under the age of 13, you may not have an account on PhishShield. PhishShield does not knowingly collect information from or direct any of our content specifically to children under 13. If we learn or have reason to suspect that you are a user who is under the age of 13, we will terminate your account.
We do not share, sell, rent, or trade User Personal Information with third parties for their commercial purposes, except where you have specifically told us to.
We do not share your security image with other users or third parties.
PhishShield will retain User Personal Information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide our services.
We use the following cookies:
|_phishshield_session||This stores information about your current session and keeps you logged in to PhishShield.|
|_ps_uuid||This is your uuid.|
|__stripe_mid, __stripe_sid||These are used by our payment processor, Stripe.|
PhishShield services are built with strong security features that continuously protect your information.
In the event of a data breach that affects your User Personal Information, we will act promptly to mitigate the impact of a breach and notify any affected users without undue delay.
PhishShield may disclose personally-identifying information or other information we collect about you to law enforcement in response to a valid subpoena, court order, warrant, or similar government order, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect our property or rights, or those of third parties or the public at large.
In complying with court orders and similar legal processes, PhishShield strives for transparency. When permitted, we will make a reasonable effort to notify users of any disclosure of their information, unless we are prohibited by law or court order from doing so, or in rare, exigent circumstances.
