Processing of your data

Red Shield VPN processes user data to a limited scope – for provision of the Services, processing payments for the Services, support implementation, as well as the functioning of our websites and mobile applications. We process the following basic information:

  • Name. This is necessary to establish a Red Shield VPN account.

  • Email address. We use your email address to: i) establish a Red Shield VPN account and retrieve a lost password; ii) send you important updates and announcements related to your use of our Services; iii) respond to your requests or inquiries; iv) send you offers, surveys and other marketing content; v) send emails related to payment transactions.

  • Payment data (when using paid Services). This information is necessary to collect payments for our Services. In addition to the traditional payment methods, such as credit cards, users can buy our Service with cryptocurrency. Our payment processing partners process basic billing information for payment processing and refund requests. We also process some of the same payment information ourselves in cases of recurring payments. You can disable recurring payments in your dashboard (my.redshieldvpn.com) in the "Profile" section.

    • Please note that payments from certain countries are processed by third parties. The list of such countries is provided below and is subject to update:

      • Russia – Private Networks LP, Suite 1 4 Queen Street, Edinburgh, United Kingdom, EH2 1JE, Reg. No. SL030265.

  • Country details. When providing your payment details, we ask our users to provide the country where they are registered, have a permanent address or usually live. This information is necessary for VAT calculation purposes.

  • Communication optimization data. We use various tools to help us optimize our emailing campaigns. These tools may track events you perform with an email, such as open and unsubscribe. We may also be able to see the user device’s operating system in order to optimize push notifications.

  • Chat-bot. If you contact us via our chat-bot on our website, we will be able to see your contact information. This additional information is necessary for our support to determine the user's country and to see if the user is connected to our servers or not.

  • Access logs. As most websites on the internet, our website collects access logs to operate our services and ensure their secure, reliable, and robust performance. This information is also essential for fighting against DDoS attacks, scanning and similar hacking attempts.

  • Cookies. Cookies, web beacons, pixels and other similar technologies are usually small text or image files that are placed on your device when you visit our website. Some cookies are essential for our website to operate smoothly; others are used to improve website functionality or analyze aggregated usage statistics to improve website performance. We also use affiliate cookies to identify the customers referred to the website by our partners so that we can grant the referrers their commission and to measure the effectiveness of their advertising campaigns and/or to personalize the advertising content that you see on websites that you visit. We have no control over these cookies. You can choose to disable cookies through your individual browser options. To know more detailed information about cookie management with specific web browsers, it can be found at the browsers' respective websites.

  • Diagnostic data. We collect your IP address to optimize network speeds, to identify problems and areas for improvement.

  • Legal requirements. Pursuant to statutory requirements we might be obliged to process other personal information to protect our legitimate interests and legal rights. Personal information is being stored for a period established by the applicable law. User activities outside of the Red Shield VPN website are not tracked nor do we track the browsing activities of users who are logged to the Services.

Sharing your personal data

We do not sell, rent or share your personal information with third parties except as described in this Privacy Policy.

Service providers. We use third-party service providers to help us with various operations, such as payment processing, email automation, website and app diagnostics, analytics and other. As a result, some of these providers may process personal information. Our service providers receive the information they absolutely need in order to perform their functions.

Sometimes our service providers will be independent controllers of your data. Their terms and conditions and privacy policies will apply to such relationships. 

Your personal information may be processed in any country where we have facilities or in which we engage service providers. When you use our Services, you acknowledge and permit the transfer of your personal information outside of the country where you reside.

Business Transfers. To any acquiring company if, at any point, we are acquired or merged with another company.

Legal. We disclose personal information to law enforcement authorities or courts of competent jurisdiction when we are asked and legally obliged to do so. Any official request for user data should follow an appropriate legal process to be recognized by the applicable law. Contact information for government authorities: Private Network Labs LLC, 512 Lucerne Ave., Suite 169, Lake Worth, FL 33460, USA.
