Privacy Policy

What information do we collect from you

  • We do not collect any personal information from you, unless you provide it to us voluntarily.
  • If you wish to provide us your personal information, we will only collect the personal information which is needed to fulfill your requests and our legitimate business objectives.
  • We do link the IP address(es) you use to connect to our website to your Second Life Avatar. Connections are logged anonymously for security and statistical purposes only.
  • Personal information disclosed by you within our public areas can be collected by other users of such services and may result in unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for protecting such information that you may disclose to third parties through our services (e.g. sending your Email address to another user through the instant message service).
  • General, aggregated, and non-personal information may be collected by SHX. This type of anonymous, aggregated profiling data may include information that you have provided to us through surveys, polls, etc., but will not be tied to any personal information. It may also include aggregated anonymous information about site usage and the customer base.

How do we use the information collected from you

  • Personal information which we collect for a particular purpose will only be saved and used for that purpose, unless you have agreed to allow us to use it for some other purpose, as described in this Policy.
  • We may disclose your personal information to law enforcement or other appropriate third parties in connection with criminal investigations, investigation of fraud, infringement of intellectual property rights, or other suspected illegal activities, or as otherwise may be required by applicable law, or in order to protect the legitimate legal and business interests of SHX.
  • Except as described in this policy, we will not give any of your personal information to any third party without your express approval.

Third Parties

  • This site contains links to other sites. SHX is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such sites.


  • This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control.
  • We do not tie IP addresses to login names or avatar names, although we have a security system that protects against brute force login attempts. When this happens, all IP addresses will be logged and possibly be banned from accessing this site ever again.
  • Passwords given to you to login into this site are stored encrypted in a protected database. In the case that anyone, however unlikely, would get a hold of the data, is not able to know your password. This also means that we, SHX, are not able to provide your password in case you lost it. You can use the password reset from the device you purchased to make a new one.
