I just received this communication from CasperTech as their customer. From what we read, CaspeTech with all its sales, rental, etc. transferred ownership to Linden Lab. The transfer of ownership also involves the transfer to Linden Lab of your personal data related to the purchases you made with the well-known company during these 13 years of activity in Second Life.
Here is the communication:
“Dear Oema Resident,
You are receiving this communication because you are a registered user of CasperTech services related to Second Life (CasperVend, CasperLet, or CasperSafe). We don’t communicate like this very often, but we have some really exciting news to share!
CasperTech has provided various business-related services within Second Life for 13 years. Over that time, we have been proud to provide continuous service for tens of thousands of Second Life businesses, and have remained steadfast to our commitment to the merchants who depend on us.
Today we announce the next step in our journey. We are delighted to share that the Second Life portion of CasperTech is being acquired by Linden Research, Inc.
Not only will this move ensure that all of our services will continue to operate without interruption into the foreseeable future, but it also opens up brand new opportunities to vastly improve the experience for our users.
You can expect to see the same great services that you know and love continue on, but with closer integration into the Second Life ecosystem – and as such, an even more reliable and convenient experience.
As part of this process, the entity that controls your data (the “data controller”) will change from CasperTech Ltd, a United Kingdom-based company, to Linden Research, Inc, a company based in the United States. This means that the data we hold about you, and on your behalf, will transfer ownership and jurisdiction.
You have the right to object to your data being transferred to Linden Research, Inc, by requesting the deletion of your data prior to this transfer instead, if you wish. You can view information on the data that we hold on your behalf, and request deletion, using our GDPR tool: https://gdpr.casperdns.com. If you have difficulty with this tool for any reason, please email email@example.com with your request. In order to take effect before the transfer, deletion requests must be activated by 5pm UK time on Monday, 19th of September. Otherwise, your data will be transferred to Linden Research, Inc, although you can still request that your data is deleted by them afterwards.
Information about how Linden Research, Inc protects personal data can be found at https://www.lindenlab.com/privacy.
We hope that you are as excited about this change as we are, and we thank you for your continued support as we all step boldly into the future together!
Casper Warden and the CasperTech Team”
