Castle encourages you to familiarize yourself with this policy. By providing information to Castle, or to Castle’s client that passes your information to Castle, you are giving your consent to Castle’s use of information as set forth in this Policy.

We reserve the right to revise this Policy at any time. We will notify you of any material changes to the Policy by posting the new Policy here. You should periodically read this Policy to learn of any revisions.

Castle may collect and maintain the following personal information: 1) personal information, including your name, address, and e-mail address, when you register for our services or purchase our products; and 2) information on which tests and training courses you have taken and whether you passed or failed them. Castle also collects information about your engagement with our testing and other products, such as time taken per question, how many log-in attempts were used, and other similar information.

To describe our products and services to prospective clients and partners, Castle may disclose personal information in an aggregate form that does not contain any individually identifiable information. Castle will not share your personal information with third parties, other than the client organizations with which you are affiliated, unless we are expressly authorized to do so.

If Castle sells all or part of its business or makes a sale or transfer of its assets or is otherwise involved in a merger or transfer of all or a material part of its business, Castle may transfer your information to the party or parties involved in the transaction as part of that transaction.

We may do so when we believe in good faith that disclosing this information is otherwise necessary or advisable, including, for instance, to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interfering with the rights or property of Castle, another user or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.

Cookies

Our website may use cookies. Cookies are small data files generated by web servers and stored in your computer for future access.

You can configure your web-browser to disable cookies, but doing so may impair your use of the site.

Security of Information

Castle takes reasonable precautions to ensure the safety and security of information we collect; however, there is no fail-safe system that guarantees absolute security for web-based businesses due to the constant evolution of technology. Although security measures are in place, Castle cannot guarantee that a breach of security from an unauthorized outside agent will not occur. Castle agrees to keep all of its data security technology and software up-to-date as is commercially reasonable to ensure the protection of the material.
