It is important for us to continue communicating our message and to do so with integrity, by providing engaging, business relevant communication and content.

Other State Laws, Including the California Consumer Privacy Act
As noted above, states such as California, Virginia, and Nevada have state laws conferring certain rights relating to personal information of its residents. For example, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) gives California residents, as that term is defined in the CCPA, more control over the personal information that businesses collect about them. The CCPA establishes California consumers’ right to know what information is collected and how it is used and shared and the right to delete or opt-out of the sale of personal information. Virginia and Nevada have similar laws. Data about individuals who are not residents of California, Virginia, or Nevada may be handled differently and is not subject to the same rights described below.
ZPE Systems does not sell personal information to third party vendors.
Residents of multiple states have the right to ask us not to “sell” certain personal information as that term is defined under the CCPA. You can make such a request by emailing support@zpesystems.
- Disclose to you the following information covering the 12-month period prior to your request (“Access Request”):
a. The categories of Personal Data we collected about you and the categories of sources from which we collected the Personal Data;
b. The business or commercial purpose for collecting Personal Data about you;
c. The categories of third parties to whom we disclosed Personal Data about you, and the categories of Personal Data disclosed;
d. The specific pieces of Personal Data we collected about you; and
2. Delete Personal Data we collected from you (“Deletion Request”).
