How We Share Your Personal Information

We may share your information:

  • with service providers for the purpose of providing you with the services;
  • to comply with legal obligations;
  • to protect and defend our rights and property or the safety of other users; and
  • with your permission.

Vendors and Service Providers. We share information with our vendors and service providers who provide administrative and technological support for our services. Those vendors and service providers are under contractual obligations to us maintain the confidentiality of your Personal Information that we disclose to them and only use the Personal Information at our direction.

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us. However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions. For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your Personal Information will be handled by these providers.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your Personal Information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.

Once you leave our store’s website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this privacy statement or our website’s Terms of Service.

Marketing. We do not rent, sell, or share your Personal Information with other people or nonaffiliated companies for their direct marketing purposes without your consent. We may, however, allow access to other data collected by the Website to enable the delivery of online advertising on and through the Website, or otherwise facilitate transmittal of information that may be useful, relevant, valuable or otherwise of interest to you. For example, we may target advertising towards you based upon your Personal Information without sharing your Personal Information with a third party. If you respond to such advertising, then the third party may deduce that you meet certain characteristics (e.g., you are a woman between the ages of X and Y). In all cases, Shift may market our services to you directly, and such third party advertisers may also market their services to you directly. Information collected through the Website shall be available to us and to such third parties subject to this privacy statement.

As Required By Law and Similar Disclosures. We may access, preserve, and disclose your Personal Information, other account information, and content if we believe doing so is required or appropriate to: comply with law enforcement requests and legal process, such as a court order or subpoena; respond to your requests; or protect yours’, ours’ or others’ rights, property, or safety.

Merger, Sale, or Other Asset Transfers. If Shift is involved in a change in control, merger, acquisition, financing due diligence, or reorganization, bankruptcy, receivership, sale assets, your information may be sold or transferred as part of such a transaction as permitted by law and/or contract. We cannot control how such entities may use or disclose such information.

We may also disclose your Personal Information with your permission and to fulfill your requests.


Shift has administrative and technological measures in place to protect information, including Personal Information in our care. We use various safeguards such as SSL, data encryption, obfuscation of personal identifiable information (such as email address, IP Address, etc.), internal and external data security processes and procedures 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 via mobile device, 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.

Our payment solution is hosted with Stripe. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data is stored through Stripe's data storage, databases and the general Stripe application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.

If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Stripe stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.

All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.

PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
