We Protect 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 brought forth by the EU General Data Protection Regulation also known as EU-GDPR.

By the use of advanced technology we enable you to seamlessly port your data from LinkedIn to the SHIELD platform.

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.” (From

We believe proper and ethical use of LinkedIn data in particular of all social platforms, will empower and enable people to become more active and successful in their use of LinkedIn.

At SHIELD we support LinkedIn's mission of connecting the world's professionals to make them more productive and successful, in order to achieve our shared vision of creating economic opportunity for the global workforce we are all a part of.

We provide statistical insight and analysis on profile activity and content performance. To learn what works and what doesn't. To optimize and improve. We do not scrape or automate user behavior, and we do not encourage such activities. It takes people and effort to build and nurture relationships, not bots and automation.

Your Data Belongs to You

Your data is yours and we want you to be able to use it in ways that benefit you.

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