We Protect Your Data

At SHIELD we ensure and continuously work towards the protection and ethical use of your data. Our use of your data to optimize your experience on LinkedIn is in complete alignment with the General Data Protection Regulation or (GDPR) approved by the EU and implemented on the 25th of May 2018. Article 20 of the GDPR clearly states:

“The data subject shall have the right to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which he or she has provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided.”

More information about GDPR is available and accessible here:

Developed in direct correlation with this legal document concerning data protection and use, the SHIELD app secures the ethical and legal use of your data, without legal interference from LinkedIn based on legal European precedence regarding data protection and use.

Article 20 of the GDPR clearly specifies your right to data portability from LinkedIn’s interface into the SHIELD app.

Your (LinkedIn) Data Belongs to You

We believe that your data is yours and that it belongs to you. We also believe that the way in which you choose to use it, is your decision alone.

Fortunately, LinkedIn states explictly on their platform that "Your LinkedIn data belongs to you," (, October 2019)

The All-in-One analytics platform to optimize your LinkedIn experience

SHIELD as a tool is built exclusively on already existing LinkedIn data and is intended to do nothing more than analyzing and mapping out your data, in order for you to more efficiently engage, post and otherwise strengthen your presence on LinkedIn.

Should you choose to cancel your subscription to our services, we would, of course, be sad to see you go. Yet, we ensure that any further use of your data would only be used anonymously and exclusively for data analysis purposes.
