ZS works with a number of service providers in the course of everyday business. We have service providers that assist us with employee travel, the processing and distribution of paychecks and bonuses, the provision of benefits and other insurance services, as well as providers for the support of core business functions (e.g., software and server space). We never provide ZSers’ personal information to third parties that are not providing services to ZS, and we ensure that our service providers adhere to the same level of data protection that we do.

We provide reasonable and appropriate physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards intended to maintain the confidentiality of the information and SPD we collect. Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide reasonable security for information we process and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.
