Using Online Community Discussions
When participating in Online Community and Social Media discussions, users are asked to review and abide by rules and etiquette points. By participating in the Online Community and Social Media discussions, you consent to share certain personal data (including user name). Each Shamrock member’s email address in the Online Community and Social Media platform is a “blind” address, thus concealing the email address but still allowing messages to be sent.

Shamrock occasionally surveys customers on key research topics affecting the industry and to improve upon products and services offered by Shamrock. All online survey data is reported in aggregate. Participation in surveys is optional. No individual data ever is released, identified or shared with survey partner companies. Unique survey identifiers (e.g., names or customer account numbers) are kept confidential and only used by authorized Shamrock associates to contact survey participants, if necessary.
