ShiftMed shall have the right to retain records of such data including, but not limited to, usage, activity logs, and click-throughs. ShiftMed may disclose such data, whether in the form collected or a derivative form, to third parties provided it is presented in an aggregate and/or deidentified form.

We do not knowingly collect any information from anyone who we know to be under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 18, you should use this website only with the involvement of a parent or guardian and should not submit any personal information to us.

Global Positioning System
Global Positioning System (GPS) tracking technology may need to be enabled in ShiftMed products and services in order to determine the location (latitude and longitude) of users of the ShiftMed products and services. We will request your permission prior to such geolocation tracking. Where authorized, this information is transmitted as necessary for the products and services, which may include transmission to ShiftMed, its service providers (including hosting provider), and ShiftMed’s users or customers. ShiftMed does not provide this information to any other third party. This information is used in conjunction with ShiftMed’s applications. You acknowledge and consent to the use of this technology where it is enabled, unless you (a) decline access to such information in the app; or (b) contact us via the contact information below. Some elements of the services may not be accessible to you if you decline to provide geolocation data.
ShiftMed uses industry-standard technologies when transferring and receiving consumer data exchanged between ShiftMed and other companies to help ensure its security. This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under ShiftMed’s control. However, there is no guarantee that your personal information in any system is 100% secure.
We may use standard Internet technology, such as web beacons and other similar technologies, to track your use on our sites and software. We also may include web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or newsletters to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon. The information we obtain in this manner enables us to customize the services we offer our users to deliver targeted advertisements and to measure the overall effectiveness of our online advertising, content, programming or other activities.
We may allow third parties, including our authorized service providers, advertising companies, and ad networks, to display advertisements on our site and/or software. ShiftMed and these companies may use tracking technologies, such as cookies, to collect information about users who view or interact with these advertisements and connect to the ShiftMed properties and/or software. This information allows ShiftMed and these companies to deliver targeted advertisements and gauge their effectiveness.
Do Not Track
“Do Not Track” is a privacy preference that you can set in your Internet search browser that sends a signal to a website that you do not want the website operator to track certain browsing information about you. However, because our Site is not configured to detect Do Not Track signals from a user’s computer, we are unable to respond to Do Not Track requests.
ShiftMed may create links to other web sites. ShiftMed will make a reasonable effort to link only to sites that meet similar standards for maintaining each individual's right to privacy. However, many other sites that are not associated or authorized by ShiftMed may have links leading to our site. ShiftMed cannot control these links and ShiftMed is not responsible for any content appearing on these sites.
