It is said that ROM is a primary memory , but according to some sources, it's data gets loaded to RAM before CPU can process them. Does it mean that CPU doesn't have direct access to ROM? If that's so, why ROM is called a primary memory?

In fact, my question is how ROM (whether it be MROM or EPROM) could be called a "primary memory " while CPU doesn't have direct access to its data?
