Privacy Policy


Encast, Inc. (“Encast” or “we” or “us”) has created this Privacy Policy in order to disclose its use of consumer data collected about you. This Privacy Policy is effective as of May 16, 2016. Any questions regarding this policy should be directed by email to info@encast.gives. You may also contact Encast at P.O. Box 201357, Austin, TX 78720-1357. The following discloses Encast’s information gathering and dissemination practices for its social networking applications and website.

Information Collected and Received

Encast may collect or receive information about each person who registers with the Encast website and/or applications including, but not limited to, user name, password, first and last name, email address, street address, gender, occupation, and interests. Encast also collects information on the pages you access and other information you may volunteer, such as survey information. Encast may also collect user location information, as further described in the “Global Positioning System” paragraph below.

Uses of Information


Except as described in this section, we will not disclose your personal information to any third party without notifying you of our intent to share the information and giving you an opportunity to prevent your information from being shared.

From time to time, we may partner with companies based on the interests of our users. These partner companies will never see your email address or any other information that could identify you or be used to contact you directly.

Any exceptions to this policy of sharing your name, address or email address with a partner company will be done only with your permission.

Encast reserves the right to disclose information when required by law.

We occasionally use other companies to perform services necessary to our operations. In the course of providing these services, those companies may have access to your personal information. By contractual agreement, those companies must treat your information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. However, we will not be liable for any damages that may result from the misuse of your personal information by these companies.

Encast may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with Encast’s server and to administer Encast’s web site. Your IP address may also be used to help identify you and your online profile and to gather broad demographic information.

The Encast site registration form requires users to give Encast contact information (such as your name and email address) and demographic information (such as your zip code, age, or income level). Encast uses your contact information from the registration form to send you information about Encast and promotional material from some of Encast’s partners. Your contact information may also be used to contact you when necessary. Encast may use demographic and/or profile data to tailor the your experience on the Encast website and/or applications, show you content that Encast thinks you may be interested in, and display content according to your preferences. The demographic and profile data will be shared with third parties ONLY on an aggregate basis. Furthermore, Encast shall have the right to retain records of all data pertaining to use of the website and applications including, but not limited to, usage, activity logs, and click-throughs. Encast may disclose such data to third parties provided it is grouped with other Encast users’ data and is presented in an aggregate form.

We may also disclose, on an anonymous basis, statements made by our users.

Children’s Privacy

We do not knowingly collect any information from anyone who we know to be under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 18, you should use this website only with the involvement of a parent or guardian and should not submit any personal information to us. If we discover that a person under the age of 13 has provided us with any personal information, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete such person's personal information from all Encast systems.

Global Positioning System

Global Positioning System (GPS) tracking technology may need to be enabled in Encast products and services in order to determine the location (latitude and longitude) of users of the Encast products and services. This information is transmitted to Encast, Encast’s users, and temporarily stored by Encast. Encast does not provide this information to any other third party. This information is used in conjunction with Encast’s applications.


Encast uses industry-standard technologies when transferring and receiving consumer data exchanged between Encast and other companies to help ensure its security. This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under Encast’s control.

Encast may create links to other web sites. Encast will make a reasonable effort to link only to sites that meet similar standards for maintaining each individual's right to privacy. However, many other sites that are not associated or authorized by Encast may have links leading to our site. Encast cannot control these links and Encast is not responsible for any content appearing on these sites.


Encast may amend this policy at any time.
