Information Collection and Use
Castle Wholesalers is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will
not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what
is disclosed in this statement. Castle Wholesalers collects information
from our users at several different points on our web site.
A user is required to give their contact information (such as name and email
address). This information is used to contact the user about the services on our
site for which they have expressed interest.
We request information from the user on our order form. Here a user must provide contact
name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number,
expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill
customer's orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact
information is used to get in touch with the user.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing
information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any
personally identifiable information while on our site. Once the user closes
their browser, the cookie simply terminates. For instance, by setting a cookie
on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby
saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use
our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some
areas of our site. Cookies can
also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the
experience on our site.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track
user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP
addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We will share aggregated demographic information with our partners and
advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any
individual person. We use an outside company to fill some orders, and a
credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services.
We partner with another party to provide specific
services. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names, or
other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these
services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable
information except for the purpose of providing these services.

privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally
identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information
collected by this Web site.

When users submit sensitive information via the web site, your information is
protected both online and off-line. When our registration/order form asks users
to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security
number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption
software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form,
the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and
Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open,
when you are just 'surfing'.
We send all new members a welcoming email. Established members will occasionally
receive information on products,
services, special deals, and a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our
users, we present the option to not receive these types of communications. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to opt-out of our mailing list.
