This Policy sets forth the principles under which ZLTI manages the processing of Personal Data that it receives from its employees in the EU in support of its human resources operations.

- Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation
- Recourse, Enforcement, and Liability

b. Choice. ZLTI collects Personal Data about its employees for human resources or compliance related functions, including, without limitation, recruiting, onboarding, performance appraisals and payroll or benefit distribution.

ZLTI shall enter into contracts to ensure that any Third Party to whom Personal Data may be disclosed is aware of and adheres to the Principles or is subject to law providing the same level of privacy protection as is required by the Principles and agrees to provide an adequate level of privacy protection. The Company shall also, upon notice, take reasonable and appropriate steps to stop and remediate unauthorized processing by Third Party Agents and agrees to provide a summary or a representative copy of the relevant privacy provisions of its contracts with agents to the DOC upon request.
The storage by Company of Personal Data on servers and/or on software made available or hosted by Third Party vendors shall not be considered disclosures of Personal Data to a Third Party so long as the Third-Party vendor does not have direct access to the Personal Data stored or hosted. In all events, ZLTI shall ensure by contract that any such Third-Party vendor (a) is aware of the Principles or (b) is subject to laws providing the same level of privacy protection as is required by the Principles or (c) has contractual safeguards in place to protect the Personal Data.
ZLTI is not required to identify the sources of Personal Data when such identification is not possible through reasonable efforts, or where the rights of persons other than the affected Data Subject would be violated.

e. Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation.

ZLTI depends on its employees to keep Personal Data reliable, accurate, complete, and current and will rely on its employees to maintain the integrity of all Personal Data they provide to the Company. The Company shall also adhere to the Principles for as long as it retains such Personal Data.
f. Access. ZLTI allows Data Subjects to access their Personal Data and to correct, amend or delete inaccurate information or information that is processed against the Principles, except (i) where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the privacy of the Data Subject in the case in question, (ii) for requests which are manifestly abusive, based on unreasonable intervals or their number or repetitive or systematic nature. Such Data Subject may request access to, correction or amendment of or deletion of such inaccurate information by contacting: DPO@zlti.com or email@example.com
