Categories of Personal Information Sold
We do not sell your personal information including sensitive personal information to third parties. Please note that “sale” of personal information does not include those instances when such information is part of a merger, acquisition, or other transaction involving all or part of our business. If we sell all or part of our business, make a sale or transfer of assets, or are otherwise involved in a merger or other business transaction, we may transfer your personal information to a third party as part of that transaction. If such transaction materially affects the manner in which your personal information is processed, we will notify you of such change prior to its implementation.
How Your Information is Stored, Transferred, and Secured
Sauz’s offices are located in the United States and our Services are not directed to clients in other jurisdictions. If you are located in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) and you use our Services, this will involve transferring your personal information outside of the EEA. Many of our external third parties are based outside of the EEA, so their processing of your personal information will involve a transfer of information outside of the EEA. For example, Sauz hosts the information it collects at its data center in the United States. As a result, your information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, law enforcement officials and other lawful authorities in another jurisdiction according to its laws. Subject to the applicable laws, we will use reasonable efforts to ensure that appropriate protections are in place to maintain protections on the personal information.
Retention and Deletion of Personal Information
We will retain your personal information for as long as necessary to provide our Services, and as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our policies. Retention periods will be determined taking into account the type of information that is collected and the purpose for which it is collected, bearing in mind the requirements applicable to the situation and the need to destroy outdated, unused information at the earliest reasonable time. Under applicable regulations, we will keep records containing client personal information, account opening documents, communications and anything else as required by applicable laws and regulations. We will not retain your personal information or sensitive personal information longer than reasonably necessary for the purposes for which the information was collected.
We may rectify or remove incomplete or inaccurate information, at any time and at our own discretion.

Sauz employs reasonable administrative, physical, and technical safeguards to protect the information we collect, process, and store. However, no website, network, or system can be absolutely protected against intentional or malicious intrusion attempts despite taking appropriate and reasonable precautions. Furthermore, Sauz does not control the devices, computer or network through which you access the Website or over which you may choose to send personal information or other information to us, and therefore cannot prevent potential interceptions or compromises to your information while in transit.

All of our Services, including our Websites, are intended for adult audiences, and are not directed to or meant for individuals under the age of 18 (“Children”).

Privacy Information for California Residents
Sauz has in place policies and procedures to facilitate the exercise of privacy rights available to California residents. If you are a California resident, the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) requires us to disclose the following information with respect to our collection, use, and disclosure of personal information.
● Your Privacy Rights Subject to certain limitations, you have the following rights under California law:
o RighttoAccess:tohaveaccesstoyourpersonalinformationuponsimplerequest–that is, you may receive a copy of such information upon receipt of a verifiable request, along with other information related to the collection or processing.

The specific pieces of your personal information Sauz holds;
The categories of personal information collected about you, sold to third parties, or disclosed to third parties for business purposes;
The categories of personal information sold within the last 12 months;
The categories of sources from which personal information is collected;
The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal information; and
The categories of third parties with whom personal information is shared, sold, or disclosed for a business purpose.
o Right to Opt-Out of the Sale of Personal Information: California residents have the right to opt-out of the sale of their personal information under certain circumstances. As noted elsewhere, we do not sell your personal information.
o Right to Deletion: to obtain the deletion of your personal information in the situations set forth by applicable data protection law and upon receipt of a verifiable request.
o Right to Non-Discrimination. As defined under relevant law, you have a right to non-discrimination in the Services or quality of Services you receive from us for exercising your rights.
Please contact us utilizing the email address listed in the “Contact Us” Section below in relation to exercising these rights. We may ask you to provide information about yourself so that we can verify your identity as part of this process. This information may include your name, email address, and any other information necessary to reasonably verify your identity, to ensure that your information is not shared with anyone impersonating you. We may ask for additional information if we have difficulty
confirming your identity. We will not share your information or honor other requests in those situations in which we are unable to confirm a request for your information is a “verifiable request.” Once we have verified your identity, we will work to fulfill your request in a timely manner. Please note there may be some situations in which we are unable to fulfill your request, such as if we cannot find any information about you within our systems. Additionally, we may not be able to honor a deletion request in some situations, such as if your information is necessary to fulfill the Services you requested or meet a legal obligation. We will inform you whether we can fulfill your rights request.
Under California law a consumer can appoint an “authorized agent” to make certain verifiable requests upon their behalf, such as the right to know what information we collect about the consumer or to request deletion of the consumer’s information. An “authorized agent” may submit a request on behalf of a California resident who has authorized the agent to act on their behalf. Because the security and privacy of your information is paramount, we will ask that you identify such persons and directly confirm that such persons are authorized to act as your agent and exercise your applicable rights under California law in such situations. This may require us to contact you directly and alert you that an individual has claimed to be your agent and is attempting to access or delete your information. We will also independently verify your identity to ensure that an unauthorized person is not attempting to impersonate you and exercise your rights without authorization. We will not share your information or honor any other requests in those situations where you cannot or do not grant permission in writing for an identified authorized agent to act on your behalf, or where we cannot independently verify your identity.
