Please note that we do not knowingly sell or share the personal information of minors under 18 years of age.


The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.


You have the right to request that we limit the use and disclosure of certain personal information, opt-out of the use of certain personal information, as well as disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. You may request that we:

  • Disclose to you the categories of personal information we collected about you.

  • Disclose to you the categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.

  • Disclose to you our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.

  • Disclose to you the categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information.

  • Disclose to you the specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).

  • Disclose to you if we sold, shared, or otherwise disclosed your personal information for a business purpose, separately disclosing:
    • Sales, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient purchased;

    • Sharing, identifying the personal information categories that we shared with each category of recipient; and

    • Disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient obtained.

  • Stop using automated decision-making technology to evaluate you, create a profile of you, and make predictions about your future behavior.

  • Limit the use and disclosure of your “sensitive personal information,” as that term is defined in the CCPA. At your request, we will use “sensitive personal information” only for purposes necessary to provide the Services.


You have the right to request that we delete your personal information that we have collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your consumer rights request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us, or our service provider(s), to:

  • Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, fulfill the terms of a written warranty or product recall conducted in accordance with federal law, or otherwise perform our contract with you.

  • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.

  • Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.

  • Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.

  • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).

  • Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information's deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research's achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.

  • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.

  • Comply with a legal obligation.

  • Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.


You have the right to request that we correct any inaccurate information we hold about you. Upon receipt and verification of your request to correct inaccurate personal information, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to correct your personal information as directed by you, pursuant to the law and applicable regulations.


To exercise the access, use limitation, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a consumer rights request to us by any of the following methods:

  • By calling: 800-886-6866

  • By emailing: info@zeezees.com

  • By visiting: https://foodservice.zeezees.com/

Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a consumer rights request related to your personal information. You may also make a consumer rights request on behalf of your minor child. To designate an authorized agent, please contact us through the methods noted above. Only the consumer or authorized agent may make a consumer rights request related to their personal information. An “authorized agent” is a person (or a business entity registered with the California Secretary of State) that consumers have authorized to act on their behalf or an individual granted authority under a written power of attorney issued pursuant to California Probate Code sections 4000 to 4465.

If you are an authorized agent who wishes to submit a request to know, a request to limit use, a request to delete, or a request to opt-out on behalf of another consumer, please submit to us sufficient information to allow us to verify your identity to a reasonably high degree of certainty and either:

  • Proof of authorization to submit the request, written and signed by the consumer; or

  • A power of attorney pursuant to Probate Code sections 4000 to 4465.

We may deny a request from an authorized agent who does not submit adequate proof that they have been authorized by the consumer to act on the consumer's behalf. We may also contact the consumer directly to confirm their identity and that they provided you permission to submit the request on the consumer's behalf.
You may only make a consumer rights request for deletion, access, or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The consumer rights request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.

  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.

We will only use personal information provided in a consumer rights request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.


We endeavor to respond to a consumer rights request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 45 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.

We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of your request. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your consumer rights request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.


We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights.

However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information's value and contain written terms that describe the program's material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time.


Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that you can set in your web browsers, which allows you to opt out of tracking by websites and online services. We do not currently recognize or respond to DNT signals. For more information about DNT, please see www.eff.org/issues/do-not-track.

To make such a request, please send an email to info@zeezees.com.
