Privacy Policy

The following Privacy Policy applies to www.CastleDesign.com and information provided by you.

We are concerned about privacy
Your privacy is very important to us and Castle Design respects and protects the privacy of its visitors. In this document, we explain how we may use the information you supply us. If we update our privacy policy, all revisions will be posted on this page and we reserve the right to change the privacy policy at any time.

Information collection and use
Two types of information may be collected when you visit our web site: information that you knowingly provide us (called personally identifiable information), and information that is obtained from your visit but is not directly associated with you (called non-personally identifiable information).

Personally identifiable information
Personally identifiable information may include information that you provide to us by requesting information, when registering for an account or a newsletter, special offers or programs or when you purchase products either online or over the telephone. This may include your name, address (including billing and shipping addresses), telephone number, e-mail address, organization, city, state and zip code. We may use this information to process and ship orders, to contact you about the status of your order, to contact you with answers to your questions, or to provide information about new and exciting products, services, promotions and corporate-related information. We may use mailings, telephone calls and e-mail to contact you.

You also may create an account through castledesign.com at any time by providing your email address and creating a unique password. An account is not required to visit our site or to place an order. Creating an account allows you to save order information, order history, track the status of your orders and set your ordering preferences. For your privacy and security, we do not store credit card or Gift Card numbers in your account. You may change saved account information at anytime. Simply visit the 'My Account' page, log in with your email address and password.

For those customers who purchase products from us, additional personally identifiable information such as credit card information will be collected. This information is collected in order to process your order.

For those customers who register for special email offerings, we may use the zip code you provided to email special offers that apply only to your area.

We are committed to the protection of the privacy of our customers and visitors. Our systems include hacker deterrent security provisioning and a biometric security system with proximity badge access.   Our Shopping Cart and Payment Systems Hosting and Security are Level 1 Certified PCI Compliant. Connections Encrypted: High-grade Encryption (AES-256, 256 bit keys) verified by DigiCert Inc. While in the checkout process of our online store, we make use of encryption via digital IDs provided and certified. These IDs enable our commerce site to conduct authenticated, strongly encrypted online commerce. Customers can submit credit card numbers or other personal information to our site with the assurance that they are doing business with us (not an impostor's "spoof" of our site) and that the information which they are sending to us cannot be intercepted or decrypted by anyone else.

Requesting removal of your information
If you have registered with us and/or have purchased from us, you may unsubscribe from the email campaign programs by visiting the e-mail unsubscribe page or click on the links available at the bottom of any of these special offer e-mails. You may also request the removal of your information by contacting us via e-mail.  We will never sell or distribute you information to anyone, including sister companies and/or outside entities.

Non-personally identifiable information
Non-personally identifiable information is collected without any direct association with you specifically. In the normal course of using castledesign.com, we may collect information about your habits and usage of our sites.

Our web sites may contain technologies known as action tags, web beacons or 1x1 pixel gifs or any of the latest technologies to help us identify shopping habits. These technologies sometimes employ a common internet technique used to compile aggregated statistics about the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns, common navigation paths within the sites, types of browsers and platforms that access the sites and the average connection speeds used to connect to the sites. This information is used to enhance the online experience of our customers. These technologies do not use or collect personally identifiable information, such as names or address, and do not link online actions to an identifiable person.

An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you are using the Internet. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address. Castle Design collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregated information and to audit the use of our site. If we are required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or subpoena, we will provide these IP addresses to the proper authorities.

Information sharing and disclosure
Agents, employees and contractors of Castle Design who have access to personally identifiable information are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy and the high standards of the corporation.

  • Information about you specifically will not be used for any purpose other than to carry out the services you requested from Castle Design and its affiliates. All of our affiliates have agreed to maintain the security and confidentiality of the information we provide to them.
  • We will not give, sell or rent your personally identifiable information to anyone at any time.
  • We will not use any personal information beyond what is necessary to assist us in delivering to you the services you have requested.
  • We may send personally identifiable information about you to other organizations when:
    • We have your consent to share the information (you will be provided the opportunity to opt-out if you desire). For example, if you opt-in for emails we will share this information with our marketing provider, but not with any other marketers.
    • We need to share your information in order to provide the product or service you have requested. For example, we need to share information with credit card providers and shippers to bill and ship the product you requested.
    • We are required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or subpoena.


Use of Cookies and Applets
Cookies and applets are small text files that are placed on your computer's hard drive by our servers to identify your computer.

WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PRIVACY PRACTICES OF, AND USE OF CHILDREN'S PERSONAL INFORMATION BY, WEB SITES THAT WE DO NOT OPERATE, and our privacy policy does not apply to these sites.


"Email a Friend" or "Email your Wish List"
If you elect to use any of our "Email a Friend" or "Email your Wish List" or "Share" services for informing friends about our site or products you are interested in, we may ask for your email address, your name, the email address and the name of your friend. Castle Design will automatically send the friend a one-time email on your behalf but Castle Design does not store this information. It is only used for the sole purpose of sending this one time email.

We will not condition access or participation in an activity
Castle Design will not condition a user's access or participation in an activity on giving out more personal information than what is considered reasonably necessary for the activity.

Sweepstakes and contests
From time-to-time, we may request information from you through contests or sweepstakes. Participation in these contests or sweepstakes is completely voluntary and the user has a choice whether or not to participate. Information requested may include contact information (such as name, address and phone number). Contact information gathered from contests and sweepstakes will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. We may use a third party to pick the contests and sweepstakes winners (please see the Information sharing and disclosure section for details on third parties). Demographic information such as the users birthdate may be requested, this is used to validate the age of the contestant when the rules of the contest specify a minimum age requirement. Users who enter the contest may also choose to receive marketing communications from Castle Design. The user may elect to "opt-out" of this communication at the bottom of each email or by visiting the Requesting removal of your information section of this policy.

How changes to the privacy policy will be communicated
If we decide to change our Privacy Policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, the homepage, and other places we deem appropriate so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.

If however, we are going to use users' personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify users by posting a notice on our web site for 30 days.
