Best answer as chosen by user Willy: No first-hand knowledge.. but..
Despite the fact WOT gave it an unsatisfactory rating, I accessed the help section for "HotSpot Shield Community Toolbar".
As soon as I read the word "Conduit", I closed the tab. And that was the end of my journey.
You can read the policy if you wish. Personally, I wouldn't keep anything related to Conduit. Add to that, I'm not a .. "toolbar kinda person".
Best of luck..
