CASTLE HALL respects your right to protect your personal information and undertakes to protect them and use them only for the purposes for which they were collected. The objective of this policy is to inform you about our privacy practices, notably by giving you information on why we collect personal information, as well as how they are used and stored.
How and Why Personal Information is Collected
CASTLE HALL may collect some of your personal information when you sign up for our newsletter and when you communicate with us through the “Contact us” section. The information is mainly your name, email address, company name, phone number, as well as any additional information you may wish to include in the message.
It is collected and used notably to send you the newsletter or for any other similar communication, to answer questions, respond to inquiries or request for proposal, as well as to improve the content and functionalities of the Site and therefore provide you with information of interest.
We will only contact you if you have subscribed to the newsletter or otherwise consented to receive communications from us, either expressly or by implication, as authorized by law. Each communication that we send includes the possibility to remove your name from the mailing list or to modify your preferences regarding these communications by clicking on the appropriate link provided on each message. You may also decide at any moment to cancel your subscription to these communications.
We may sometimes collect information that is not of a personal nature, such as the type of Internet browser or operating system that you use or the domain name from which you were linked to our Site.

Storage and Communication of Personal Information
CASTLE HALL stores personal information for a reasonable period of time, either to achieve its objectives or to comply with the law, whichever time frame is longer. Our storage criteria depend on the kind of information collected.
Once the objectives have been reached and your personal information is no longer useful or if you ask us to delete this information, we ensure that it remains anonymous or we destroy it in a way that ensures its protection against unauthorized access or communication.
We never disclose your personal information to any third party outside of CASTLE HALL without your consent, with the exception of the following:
- our services providers, organizations or individuals, whose services have been retained to carry out certain duties on our behalf (e.g. database management, newsletter management and transmission). CASTLE HALL takes the necessary measures, by contract or any other mean, to ensure that these third-party goods and services providers process your personal information for the purposes for which they were collected and that these suppliers protect your personal information to the same extent that CASTLE HALL protects the personal information in its possession;
- any entity resulting from a merger or change of control of CASTLE HALL, in whole or in part, only if the parties have signed an agreement stipulating that the collection, use and communication of information is limited to the objectives of the commercial transaction; and
- any public authority, if required by law.
We do not share your personal information with a promotional partner unless you authorized us to communicate your personal information in such a fashion.
