As such, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will inform you about that practice in a revised version of this Privacy Policy.  

 

11. DO CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS HAVE SPECIFIC PRIVACY RIGHTS?  

In Short:  Yes, if you are a resident of California, you are granted specific rights regarding access to your personal information. 

  

California has specific consumer privacy laws that protect California residents and their personal information.  CCPA, California Consumer Privacy Act (AB 375), Civil Code Sections 1798.100 - 1798.199, was effective January 1, 2020, and, with exceptions, permits our California users, after submitting an email request to support@zassy.com,  to opt out of the sale of their personal information (or opt in if you’re age 16 or under), to request what personal information a company has and what’s been done with it, and /or to have it deleted altogether.

Prior to CCPA becoming effective, California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the “Shine The Light” law, existed and already permitted ,our users who are California residents to request and obtain from us, once a year and free of charge, information about categories of personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared personal information in the immediately preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request to us via email at support@zassy.com.  Individuals under the age of eighteen (18), for applicable Websites and Services, have the right to request removal of unwanted data that you publicly post on the “ZASSY Platform” and ZASSY “Services”. To request removal of such data, please contact us using the contact information provided below, and include the email address associated with your account and a statement that you reside in California. We will then make sure the data is not publicly displayed on the “ZASSY Platform” and ZASSY “Services”, but please be aware that the data may not be completely or comprehensively removed from our systems.

 

12. DO WE MAKE UPDATES TO THIS POLICY?  

In Short:  Yes, we will update this policy as necessary to stay compliant with relevant laws.
