Privacy Policy for QuickShield VPN

Last updated: December 13th, 2023


Security and privacy are at the heart of what we do. Accordingly, we think it’s important to be transparent about what we do with your information and how we handle it.  This Privacy Policy describes how we process and handle data provided to us in connection with your use of our products, services, apps, and websites that link to this policy (we refer to these collectively as our “services”).

This policy uses the term “personal data” to refer to information that is related to an identified or identifiable natural person and is protected as personal data under applicable data protection law.

Who are we?

This policy covers the data processing practices of QuickShield VPN . and AZUL EFEMERO. Ltd.

In this policy, “we,” “us,” and “our” refers to the particular company from the list above that provides you with the services and is responsible for handling your data in accordance with this policy. For mobile apps, you can identify which company this is by looking at which company is listed as offering the app on the download page for that app or reviewing its terms of service.

Log Files

QuickShield VPN follows a standard procedure by using log files. These files log visitors when they access websites. This is a common practice among hosting companies and is part of hosting services' analytics. The information collected by log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. This data is not linked to any personally identifiable information. The purpose of this information is to analyze trends, administer the site, track users' movements on the website, and gather demographic information.

Data Collection

QuickShield VPN does not collect any data or information from users when they use the QuickShield VPN service. The app does not transmit or share any user activity data. The only data collected is your email address at registration, which is stored locally on your device.

Children Under 13

The QuickShield VPN service is not intended for use by children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we will take steps to delete such information. Contact us if you believe we have unintentionally collected personal information from a child under 13.

Children's Information

We prioritize protecting children using the internet. QuickShield VPN does not knowingly collect any Personal Identifiable Information from children under the age of 13. If you believe that your child provided this information on our website, please contact us immediately, and we will make efforts to promptly remove such information from our records.

Third Party Privacy Policies

QuickShield VPN's Privacy Policy does not apply to other advertisers or websites. We recommend consulting the Privacy Policies of these third-party ad servers for detailed information, including their practices and instructions on opting out. You can choose to disable cookies through your individual browser options. For more detailed information about cookie management with specific web browsers, refer to the browsers' respective websites.

3.2. Displaying Advertisements

We may serve ads to users in certain regions. The ads we display in our services are supplied either by advertisers we have relationships with or by third party advertising networks such as Google. To display third party ads in our apps, we integrate into them a software development kit (SDK), which consists of software code provided by the ad network.

We provide limited personal data about you to such third party advertising networks to enable them to provide their services. For example, some of these advertising networks may collect information through their SDKs, such as your mobile advertising identifier, IP address, and device information, for the purpose of serving you with “personalized” ads (ads that they think are more relevant to you) and measuring your response to those ads. If you are using a VPN connection, your IP address is hidden from ad networks and replaced with the IP address of our VPN servers.

Each advertising network collects this information according to their privacy policies. Where an AdChoices logo appears on an ad, you can click it to learn more about the ad network that provided the ad, its privacy policy, and your choices regarding opting out from any personalized advertising. If you opt out from personalized advertising, you may still see non-personalized ads.

While we request you not to use ad blockers to prevent the display of third party ads because that is how we support our free services, our services are able to continue functioning if you do use ad blockers.

4. Tracking Technologies & Cookies

4.1. About Tracking Technologies

We use various technologies in our services to help us collect information. For convenience, we refer to these as “tracking technologies,” although they are not always used to track individuals and the information collected is in a non-identifiable form that does not reference any personal data. Tracking technologies include:


Cookies are small portions of text that are stored on the device you use to access our services. Cookies enable us (or third parties that we allow to set cookies on your device) to recognize repeat users. Cookies may expire after a period of time, depending on what they are used for.

Pixel Tags / Page Tags / Web Beacons / Tracking Links

These are small, hidden images and blocks of code placed in web pages, ads, and our emails that allow us to determine if you perform a specific action. When you access a page, ad, or email, or click a link, these items let us know that you have accessed that page, opened an email, or clicked a link.


SDKs or software development kits are software code provided by our business partners that let our software interact with the services those partners provide. For example, in certain of our mobile apps, we may use an SDK to enable our app to serve ads from an advertising network. Sometimes these interactions will involve that business partner collecting some information from the device on which the software is run.

Google, a third-party vendor on our site, uses cookies (DART cookies) to serve ads to our site visitors based on their visits and other sites on the internet. Visitors may choose to decline the use of DART cookies by visiting the Google ad and content network Privacy Policy at the following URL: Google Ad Technologies Policies. .

      For advertising-related purposes. We advertise our services online with the help of third parties who show ads and marketing about us on sites around the internet.

4.3. Third Parties

      To provide our services. Some business partners who help us to provide our services may use these technologies to support those efforts.

      For Analytics. To help us understand how you use our services.

      For Marketing. To help us market and advertise our services to you, including on third party websites. Cookies are used in connection with this to measure the performance of our advertising, attribute actions you take with our ads with actions you take on our services, deliver ad retargeting (serving ads based on your past interactions with our services), and target ads at similar audiences.

      To Serve Ads. Ad networks may use these technologies to display ads which they think will be more relevant to you. For more information, please see the “Displaying Advertisements” section above.
