Any personal information collected through the website will be obtained with express or implied consent from the individual and will only be used or disclosed for the purpose for which it was collected.

Among other data, this information may include your IP address, the time and duration of your site visits and what pages you visited. We gather this information to determine how our site is being used, to monitor technical issues and to optimize the online visitor experience.

Please read through the following carefully as it is intended to provide a general overview about the policy of this website.

Use Of Personal Information
Shift does not collect any personal information unless you voluntarily provide it by sending us email, participating in a survey, or completing an on-line form. Personal information submitted will not be transferred to any non-affiliated third parties without your consent unless otherwise stated at the time of collection, except we may disclose personal information in response to a subpoena, court or legal process, to the extent permitted and required by law. When a user submits personally identifiable information it is used only for the purpose stated at the time of collection. Access to personal information is restricted to authorized staff of Shift.

Cookies
A cookie is a small text file stored by your browser that allows the website to “remember” your preferences such as calendar settings and site bookmarks on the site from visit to visit, or to maintain your “logged in” status when visiting protected areas. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Web browsers have settings allowing you to reject cookies, or selectively accept cookies, or delete cookies previously accepted. Please be aware that rejecting or deleting cookies from our website may make certain functions unavailable to you.

Log Files

Information monitored includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, geographic location of visitors (country, city), browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, time spent on pages, and keywords used to find our site via search engines. This information is anonymous and cannot be directly linked to individual users. We may use it to identify high-use or low-use areas of the site, pinpoint problem areas of the site, analyze broad demographic trends in our visitors, and make decisions about how to make it easier for people to find and navigate our website.

Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics to help understand how visitors engage with the site. Your web browser automatically sends certain information to Google. This includes, for example, the web address of the page that you’re visiting and your IP address. Google may also set cookies on your browser, or read cookies that are already there.

Affiliate Marketing
At Shift, we believe in transparency and value ethical practices both in our work online and offline. We want you to know that our site contains affiliate links to products that we know, love and would buy or have bought ourselves. No companies pay us directly to endorse products on our site. If you choose to buy a product that is linked on our site, we may earn a small commission without any cost to you. In no way is your purchasing data linked to you directly in a way that we can track your purchase nor would your decision to purchase a product impact the level or quality of service we would provide you through Shift. These products and advertisements are linked to help support our blog and to share some of our favourite items with our community. We do our best to ensure that there is a reminder of this policy in every blog article containing an affiliate link.

Security
This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ personal information. Whenever users submit personal information (such as contact info or credit card info) via online forms, registration, or online purchase, upon submission that information is encrypted via the highest level of SSL (Secured Sockets Layer) available. Servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment. Under no circumstances are credit card numbers permanently stored on our website servers.
