We Protect Your Data

We care about your data. We believe your data is yours, and you should be able to use it in ways that benefit you. We all should be able to do that across all the platforms and services we use and contribute to.

SHIELD is built upon the notion of data portability as described by the EU General Data Protection Regulation also known as GDPR.

By technological means we enable you to seamlessly port your data from LinkedIn. 

We are proponents of ethical, value-adding, positive use of data, and in particular of our own.

The following excerpt explains in legal jargon, yet very accurately, the regulatory force upon which SHIELD was born: Article 20, The Right to Data Portability.

β€œThe 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.”

In regards to LinkedIn, we are supportive of their mission and aspire to help grow our users into amazing, actively contributing LinkedIn members.

We do not scrape or automate user behavior. We provide statistical insight and analysis on profile activity and organic content. To learn what works and what doesn't. To optimize and improve.

Your Data Belongs to You

Your data is yours and we want to enable you to use it in ways that benefit you as well as others.

We are fully supportive of the following statement by LinkedIn, and applaud and share their stance on data privacy, "Your LinkedIn data belongs to you," (, October 2019)
