Important announcement from CasperTech
if you have a account on the Casper vendors are you using them etc.. then read below

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:

. If you have difficulty with this tool for any reason, 
please email gdpr-legal@caspertech.co.uk 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.

Caspertech was offering free vendors for 3% of sales revenue on all sales. But, they were also colleclting huge amounts of user data, and big data is everything nowadays. So there's that aspect as well.

Maybe LL saw so many sales taking place in-world (Saturday Sales events/in-world purchase discounts) at the expense of the marketplace transaction fees LL collects from marketplace purchases that they decided to buy Caspertech, get a decade plus of user data, get that 3% vedor use tax, and maybe tack on their 10% marketplace tranaction fee as well. Maybe LL thought having Caspertech running loose in-world was costing them too much money.
