Effective August 27, 2020

Protecting your privacy is important to Shy Rob. My privacy policy complies with the requirements of the Privacy Act. Protecting your privacy means I will NOT sell, rent or otherwise provide your personal information or my customer lists to persons not associated with the provision of my services and merchandise. I collect personal information only with your consent and by fair and lawful means, and for the purpose(s) for which you have given consent. I keep your personal information and the business you do with me confidential, and I employ appropriate security safeguards.

Shy Rob respects the privacy of every individual who uses his website: This Privacy Policy describes how Shy Rob collects, uses, maintains, and discloses the information that is collected from you, the user of this website.

I may also collect non-personally identifiable information as anonymous information. Shy Rob does not intentionally collect or maintain, and does not want you to provide, sensitive information such as race or ethnicity, medical condition, or religious beliefs.

Some of my business partners may use cookies on my site (for example, advertisers), however, I have no access to or control over these cookies. You may also opt out of targeted advertisements by visiting, however, opting out of targeted ads will not completely remove you from being targeted as you will continue to receive generic ads.


From time-to-time, Shy Rob may provide you with the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys and, if you choose to participate, I may request that you provide certain personally identifiable information (such as name, shipping address, age level). Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this personally identifiable information. Your information will be used to notify the winners, award prizes, and monitor or improve my website.

Further, if I use a third party to conduct the surveys and contests, I will not share your personally identifiable information without your prior written notice and choice. The third party will also be prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose.
