In this Policy, We Use the Following Definitions
We refer to our website as the “Site.”
We refer to ourselves (i.e., i3 LLC) as “i3,” “we,” “us,” and “our.”
We refer to all of the online products and services that we provide to you, individually and collectively, as the “Services.”
We refer to you, the person accessing our Site or accessing or using our Services, as “you,” “yourself,” and “your.” In the event that you purport to be an agent or other representative of an entity (e.g., as an officer or employee) or in the event that you otherwise, in fact, act on behalf of such an entity, the terms “you,” “yourself,” and “your” comprise you and such entity, unless the context suggests that the applicable term applies only to you, as an individual.
Other Definitions We Use in this Policy
The term “Personal Information” refers to any information that identifies, relates to, or could reasonably be linked to you, as an individual, or to your household. Personal Information that has been rendered anonymous in such a way that neither you, as an individual, nor your household can be identified (and in a manner that is irreversible) is no longer considered Personal Information. Also, information that can be used to identify an entity but cannot be used to identify a living individual (or his or her household) is not Personal Information. Personal Information also does not include publicly available information that is from federal, state, or local government records. The term Personal Information, as used in this policy, is meant to include the definition of “personal data” found in the GDPR and the definition of “personal information” found in the CCPA (as defined below).
What Regulations are Addressed by this Policy?
There are many privacy and data security laws and regulations to address, not to mention our policy of ensuring our customers’ privacy. So, while we strive to endeavor to comply with the requirements of each privacy and data security law and regulation that governs our activities as a business (“Applicable Laws”), we do so across the board for all of our customers and all such laws and regulations, and all Personal Information is treated with the same level of care.
Depending on the circumstances, including, without limitation, your place of residence, the location from which you access and use the Services, and the nature of the Personal Information received, the Applicable Laws may include:
The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulations (European Parliament and Council of European Union (2016) Regulation (EU) 2016/679) (“GDPR”); and
The California Consumer Protection Act (California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, Civil Code sections 1798.100 et seq., and the California Consumer Privacy Act Regulations promulgated pursuant thereto) (“CCPA”).
While we handle all personal information equally – meaning that we likely exceed the requirements for a specific single regulatory authority – we respond to inquiries and requests about Personal Information based on the residency of the individual identified by the Personal Information (for example, for someone resident in the EU, we would base our response on the GDPR and, for a resident of California, we would base our response on the CCPA).
What Information Do We Collect?
We may collect the following types of Personal Information from you:
We may also collect and aggregate information about the use of the Site and Services. That information could include information such as your IP address (an IP address is a unique numerical address assigned to a computer as it logs on to the internet), browser type, operating system, the web page that you were visiting before accessing the Site, the pages or features of the Site that you browsed and the time spent browsing those pages or features, search terms you use, the links on the Site that you clicked on, and other use statistics.

Do We Disclose Any Information to Outside Parties?
Except as set forth below, we do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personal Information. Non-personally identifiable visitor information, however, may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses. We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding the Site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business. We may also release your Personal Information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our contracts with you and policies; or protect our or others’ rights, property, or safety, as described in more detail above.
Your Personal Information may also be transferred to another company in the event of a merger, acquisition, reorganization, or other change of ownership or control that involves a transfer or assignment of all or part of our businesses or assets. This will occur if the parties have entered into an agreement under which the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information is limited to the purposes of the business transaction, including a determination whether or not to proceed with the business transaction. You will be notified via email or prominent notice on the Site for thirty (30) days of any such change in ownership or control that involves a transfer or assignment of your Personal Information or as otherwise required or permitted by law.
How Do We Handle Global Transfers and Processing of Your Personal Information?
The Site and Services are designed, developed, hosted, operated, supported, maintained, and otherwise offered by us in the United States. If you are located in another jurisdiction or access or use the Site or Services from another jurisdiction, know that your information will be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States. By accessing and using the Site and Services and permitting us to receive information, you consent to this transfer, processing, and storage of your information in the United States. It is important to note that the privacy laws in the United States may not be as comprehensive as those in other countries, such as the European Union, Asia, or other regions of the world. Our service providers use appropriate safeguards to transfer your Personal Information to the United States, and this is provided for in the terms related to privacy and data security that we have entered into with those service providers.
Personal Information that we receive from you may be processed by staff operating outside the United States who work for us or for one of our suppliers. For example, such staff may be engaged in the processing of an order for the Services, the processing of your payment details, and the provision of customer support services. By permitting us to receive your Personal Information, you agree to this transfer, storing, or processing. We will take all reasonable steps to make sure that your
The transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure; therefore, we cannot guarantee the security of Personal Information that we receive electronically, and transmission of such Personal Information is entirely at your own risk. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password so that you can access certain areas of the Site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential.
For customers who are licensing our products or services, it is our policy that we do not “sell” (as defined under the CCPA) customers’ data processed by us. Our customers’ data is always treated as sensitive.
In certain situations, we may be required to disclose Personal Information in response to lawful requests by government authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. Where our third-party suppliers are in the United States, we have ensured that their services comply with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework’s principles.
Retention of Your Personal Information
We retain your Personal Information for as long as we need to fulfill the Services. In addition:
Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance
The Site and Services are directed to people who are at least 13-years-old or older. We strive to comply with the requirements of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (or COPPA). If you are under the age of 13, do not use the Site or Services. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 years. If you nevertheless believe that your child has provided us with their Personal Information, please contact us and we will delete it.
Other rights you have concerning Personal Information that we receive include the rights to:
This is known as a Subject Access Request. If you would like a copy of some or all your Personal Information, please contact us at the address listed below.
It is your right to lodge an objection to the processing of your Personal Information if you believe that the legal ground “relating to your particular situation” applies. The only reason we will be able to deny your request is if we can show compelling legitimate grounds for the processing, which override your interest, rights, and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise, or defense of a legal claim.
If you choose to remove your Personal Information, you acknowledge that we may retain archived copies of your Personal Information.
You have the right to object to processing Personal Information. Where we have asked for your consent to process information, you have the right to withdraw this consent at any time.
