Shipium complies with applicable privacy and data protection laws when dealing with personal data about an identified or identifiable individual (a natural person).

Security and Privacy

Shipium uses reasonable commercially available tools and security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Shipium shares information with our partners for the sole purpose of better supporting our current and future clients and their customers. We will never share, sell, or rent individual personal information outside of this partner arrangement unless ordered by a court of law.
