Information obtained through cookies. We use “cookies” to keep track of some types of information while you are visiting and using the Sites. “Cookies” are very small files placed on your computer, and they allow us to count the number of visitors to the Sites and distinguish repeat visitors from new visitors. They also allow us to save user preferences and track user trends. We rely on cookies for the proper operation of the Sites; therefore if your browser is set to reject all cookies, the Sites may not function properly. Users who refuse cookies assume all responsibility for any resulting loss of functionality with respect to the Sites.

Information obtained through web beacons. “Web beacons” (also known as “clear gifs” and “pixel tags”) are small transparent graphic images that are often used in conjunction with cookies in order to further personalize the Sites for our users and to collect a limited set of information about our visitors. We may also use web beacons in email communications in order to understand the behavior of our customers, such as whether an email has been opened or acted upon.

  • Personal and business contact information (such as name, postal and email address, and telephone number); and

Where required by applicable law, we obtain consent to process personal information. We also may use the personal information we obtain in other ways for which we provide specific notice at the time of collection.

4. Sharing Your Information

We do not disclose personal information we obtain about you through the Sites, except as described in this Privacy Policy. We may share your personal information with our affiliates and subsidiaries.

In addition, we may share anonymous, aggregate information with third parties, such as service providers, for any purpose.

Information collected through third-party plug-ins and widgets on the Sites (such as information relating to your use of a social media sharing tool) is collected directly by the providers of the plug-ins and widgets. This information is subject to the Privacy Policies of the providers of the plug-ins and widgets, and Shuttle is not responsible for those providers’ information practices.

THIRD PARTY SITES

The Sites may contain links to other websites, apps and features for your convenience and information. The fact that we link to a third party websites, apps or features is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third parties.

Other websites, apps and features follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them.

HOW WE RESPOND TO LEGAL REQUESTS OR PREVENT HARM

We may access, preserve and share your information without notice or consent from you in response to a legal request (like a search warrant, court order or subpoena) if we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so. This may include responding to legal requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States where we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law in that jurisdiction, affects users in that jurisdiction, and is consistent with internationally recognized standards. We may also access, preserve and share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to: detect, prevent and address fraud and other illegal activity; to protect ourselves, you and others, including as part of investigations; or to prevent death or imminent bodily harm. For example, we may provide information to third-party partners about the reliability of your account to prevent fraud and abuse on and off of the Sites. Information we receive about you may be accessed, processed and retained for an extended period of time when it is the subject of a legal request or obligation, governmental investigation, or investigations concerning possible violations of our terms or policies, or otherwise to prevent harm. We also may retain information from accounts disabled for violations of our terms for at least a year to prevent repeat abuse or other violations of our terms.
