Terms, Conditions, & Privacy Policy

Shadowtrack Technologies, Inc., hereafter called Shadowtrack®, has implemented safeguards to protect confidential information. Shadowtrack® does not sell, rent, or otherwise disclose our mailing lists, enrollee, agency, officer, or any information about our site visitors.

Shadowtrack® does not track visitors or enrollees via our corporate website. Our site captures limited information about visits to our site to analyze general traffic patterns that determine where visits are derived from, for marketing and maintenance purposes only. If you choose to email us and provide personally identifiable information about yourself, we will not use that information for any purpose other than to respond to your inquiry unless you otherwise consent.

Shadowtrack® is committed to handling your information with the highest standards of information security. Your credit card information is stored only in encrypted form. We restrict access to your personally identifiable information to employees on a need-to-know basis in order to provide services to you. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to guard your nonpublic personal information.

Shadowtrack® has a credit card processing engine that combines Secure Socket Layer (SSL), PGP encryption, and proprietary technologies to process payments easily and securely. Additionally, the processor is certified with Visa’s Cardholder Information Security Program (CISP) and adheres to the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard. CISP and PCI further ensure the security of customer account information and are intended to protect cardholder data.

The security of your Shadowtrack® account also relies on the protection of your password. Shadowtrack® will never ask you to send your password or other sensitive information to us in an e-mail, though we may ask you to enter this type of information on the Shadowtrack® website.

This privacy policy governs your use of the software application Shadowtrack® for mobile devices. The Application is used as a tool to fulfill your court ordered, diversionary,  probation, or parole requirements. The application will send alerts to your mobile device to complete a verification call, location verification, interview, video conferencing, and/or sobriety test. The Application obtains information regarding your tracking history. Registration with us is optional. However, please keep in mind your assigned officer or supervising agent will be notified if you fail to complete your enrollment or any portion of the Shadowtrack® program.

Shadowtrack® has a video conferencing service called ShadowView that is only available to enrollees and authorized Users/Hosts (Officer, Caseworker, etc.).

  • ShadowView meetings can only be initiated by the host for the greatest level of control and security.
  • When you join a meeting, your video camera and microphone may be on by default. Be aware that participants may be able to see and hear from you as soon as you join a meeting. If you don’t want to share sound or video, you must notify the host immediately.
  • ShadowView allows the host to record the meeting for future reference. Shadowtrack® does not keep a copy of this recording.  However, the host may download the recording for their records. If you do not want the host to record the session, you must advise the host immediately.
  • Be careful before sharing your screen. Most services have functions to allow you to share with the group what’s on your screen – for example, a slide show. But before sharing your screen, make sure you don’t have open documents, browser windows, or other things on your screen you don’t intend for others to see.
  • If confidentiality is crucial, video conferencing may not be the best option. No conferencing service can guarantee the security of your information, so consider alternatives if you need to talk about particularly sensitive topics with your host.
  • ShadowView includes safeguards to keep information private. We do not share your information with third parties.
  • ShadoView recommends updating to the latest version of the software (Browser, iOS, or Android) with patches and fixes. Only accept updates directly from the service’s website.
  • By using this service, you indemnify Shadowtrack® and all of its affiliates for any breach in data sharing by the host.

Shadowtrack® has a face recognition service called ShadowFace that is only available to Enrollees and authorized Users (Officer, caseworkers, etc.). The purpose of this service is to positively identify an Enrollee during a verification session so that the assigned officer, court, or supervising agent can confirm that the Enrollee is abiding by their court ordered community supervision requirements.

  • During the enrollment process, the app will request the Enrollee to capture an image of their face (Enrollment Image)
  • The stored enrollment image will be compared to a verification image when requested by the app during a verification session in order to positively identify the enrollee or to detect spoofing attempts
  • Recognition data is not shared with any 3rd party other than with an Enrollee’s assigned officer, court, or supervising agent
  • The face data collected on the Enrollee is size, pitch, roll, yaw, and key landmarks
  • All facial recognition data is securely stored on an independent cloud server without any personally identifiable information
  • All facial recognition data is stored for a period of up to seven years (7) after the Enrollee is removed from the program. This retention time period is dictated by the supervising agency
  • The Enrollee must agree to opt in to this service by accepting the clear language on the app during the enrollment process

When you receive location alerts the mobile application will use GPS technology (or other similar technology) to determine your current location. We can share your tracking history with a court, probation officer, law enforcement, or anyone associated with your case. We will share your information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this privacy statement.

We may disclose User Provided and Automatically Collected Information: As required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena or similar legal process; when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request; Our service providers do not have an independent use of the information we disclose to them and have agreed to adhere to the rules set forth in this privacy statement.

We will retain User-Provided data for as long as you use the Application and for a reasonable time thereafter. You can stop all collection of information by the Application easily by uninstalling the Application. If you uninstall or log out of the application your assigned officer or supervising agent will be notified.

We are concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your information. We provide physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect information we process and maintain. Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide reasonable security for information we process and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.

By using the Application, you are consenting to our processing of your information as set forth in this Privacy Policy now and as amended by us. “Processing,” means using cookies on a computer/handheld device or using or touching information in any way, including, but not limited to, collecting, storing, deleting, using, combining and disclosing information.

Do Not Track (DNT) Policy

We respect the privacy of our users and understand that some users may prefer not to have their online activity tracked. Therefore, we have implemented a "Do Not Track" policy that allows users to opt-out of certain types of tracking on our website.

What is "Do Not Track" (DNT)?

"Do Not Track" is a feature in most web browsers that allows users to inform websites and online services that they do not want to be tracked. When a user enables the DNT feature, their browser sends a signal to websites indicating that the user does not want their online activity to be tracked. However, please note that there is no standard for how websites should respond to the DNT signal, and the effectiveness of DNT is therefore limited.

What types of tracking does our website use?

Our website uses certain types of tracking, such as cookies and analytics tools, to improve the user experience and to understand how users interact with our website. However, we do not use any tracking data for targeted advertising or other purposes that are not directly related to the operation of our website.

How do I opt-out of tracking on your website?

If you do not want your online activity to be tracked on our website, you can enable the DNT feature in your web browser. Please note that if you choose to enable the DNT feature, certain features of our website may not function properly.

In accordance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), we do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to register for our website or provide any personal information about yourself to us.

What personal information do we collect from children?

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If we discover that we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, we will promptly delete that information.

How do we use the personal information of children?

We do not use personal information collected from children for any purpose other than to respond to a specific request or inquiry from the child.

Do we share personal information with third parties?

We do not share personal information collected from children with third parties, except as necessary to respond to a specific request or inquiry from the child or as required by law.

How do we obtain parental consent?

We do not collect personal information from children under the age of 13 without obtaining verifiable parental consent. If a child under the age of 13 wishes to register for our services or provide personal information, we will ask the child's parent or legal guardian to provide verifiable consent. Verifiable consent may include providing a signed consent form via postal mail, email, or providing a credit card to verify the parent's identity.
