I doubt it is a true shield as in the industrial use. I doubt a home would possibly need a shield unless you run it over a fluorescent lamp or air compressor. If you maintain 2 feet away from junk you'd be fine.
You have to watch out with shields. I have seen many an instance where data issues were caused by not having a connection. This was all in rugged environments. You can also run into a major NEC issue with bonding and dual paths for current.
If you really have a shield and you want to use it. It has to be at least grounded on one end. To be safe, I wouldn't even attempt it since it is foil and not wire over foil. Unless you have wires over the foil you don't have a real shield that needs to be connected.
We run all of our can data with one end grounded.All ethernet is run in emt.
