For users outside the United States, your use of the CAST SERVICES Site indicates your consent to the transfer of your personal information to the United States and the storage of it on servers located there.
Voluntary Registration. When you create an account with CAST SERVICES, request us to contact you, register to receive information from us, and/or wish to use the CAST SERVICES Site, we may ask for certain necessary personal information like your name, email address, and phone number.

This number can not be used by others to identify you personally but does allow CAST SERVICES to track which websites you have visited including the time you visited, the pages you viewed, and how you arrived to the website.
We also collect your IP address when you visit a website of a CAST SERVICES customer, however, our customer can elect to have the IP address modified to be anonymous.

With whom does CAST SERVICES share information?
You also acknowledge and agree that in certain circumstances CAST SERVICES must share user information with specific third parties for the purpose of providing additional services. In particular, CAST SERVICES has several service partners who provide services or products and as part of such operations, these companies may be provided certain of your contact information. CAST SERVICES will endeavor to ensure that any third parties to whom we disclose your personal information abide by the terms of this Privacy Statement. In other instances we may be obliged to disclose your personal information in order to conform to any requirements of law or to comply with any legal process, as well as to protect and defend the rights of CAST SERVICES, and/or our customers. CAST SERVICES reserves the right to transfer information (including your personal information) to a third party in the event of a sale, merger, liquidation, receivership, or transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of CAST SERVICES, a subsidiary, or a line of business associated with CAST SERVICES.
In addition, CAST SERVICES also discloses aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services and reach to prospective partners, advertisers and other third parties. However, aggregate data is not traceable to you specifically. Except for these situations, we will not disclose your personal information to any third parties except to the extent necessary to provide you with a requested service or under circumstances required by law. We will disclose your personal information when we believe in good faith that any applicable law, regulation or legal process requires it, or where we believe disclosure is necessary to protect or enforce our rights. Specific uses of personal information that vary from this Privacy Statement (if any) may be found in the terms and conditions or privacy policies applicable to that particular service. To the extent that you are notified of uses of your personal information which are different from those described in this Privacy Statement during your enrollment in any particular service, contest or promotion, the uses of which you are specifically notified will govern that service, sweepstakes, contest or promotion.
Please note, however, that we do not control the privacy policies of our advertisers and other third party sites to which we provide banner ads and links. If you click through a banner ad or link and submit your information to an advertiser, you will be subject to their own privacy policies. CAST SERVICES assumes no responsibility or liability for these third party policies or the actions of non-affiliated third parties.
How does CAST SERVICES safeguard my privacy?
We take our responsibilities seriously and employ appropriate physical and technical measures to protect your personal information from unauthorized access. Although CAST SERVICES uses reasonable efforts to safeguard the privacy of your personal information, transmissions made by means of the Internet cannot be made absolutely secure. CAST SERVICES assumes no liability for disclosure of data due to errors in transmission or unauthorized third parties.
In addition, we offer our customers the ability to “anonymize” your IP address. If this capability has been enabled, your IP address is modified in memory to change the last octet to 0 (zero) before it is stored on disk. This eliminates the ability for our customers to link a specific IP address to you personally.
What else should I know about my privacy?
You should be aware that if you voluntarily disclose personal information online in a public area, that information may be collected and used by others. We do not control the actions of our visitors and registered users. If you disclose personal information in a publicly accessible place in the CAST SERVICES Site, you do so at your own risk and you understand that your submitted information may be collected and used by others to send you unsolicited messages, advertisements, or for other purposes. Please remember that you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any password you use to register and you should always be careful and responsible whenever disclosing information online.

If you do not agree or are not comfortable with any policy described in this Privacy Statement, your only remedy is to discontinue use of the CAST SERVICES Site. We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Statement at any time.
