We provide our services to you by means of an agreement with our business partners that employ our system, software and/or tools to facilitate your payments to them.
Information We Collect and How We Collect It
Information You Provide to Us. We collect information about you and your business only for specific business purposes and only where we reasonably believe that it is necessary to administer our business or provide our products and services to you. In most cases, the information we collect is about your business. However, in some cases we may collect personally identifiable information about you, such as your name, email address and mailing address. We may request this information in connection with your registration using this Website, or as part of a written application for our services.
We also collect information about our communications with you. We may collect personally identifiable information from you in e-mail, text and other electronic messages between you and us. We need this information to provide the products and services that you request from us and to let you know of additional products and services about which you might be interested.
Information We Collect through Automatic Data Collection Technologies. We automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our Website, such as the following:
- Log data: Our servers automatically record information when you use our Website, such as your IP address, the type of browser you are using and its settings, the third party website you visited immediately prior to accessing our Website, the operating system you are using, the domain name of your Internet service provider, the search terms you use on our Website, the specific Website pages you visit, and the duration of your visits.
- Cookie data: We use “cookies” to obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses our Website. "Cookies" are small text files that we transfer to your computer's hard drive or your Web browser memory to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide convenience and other features to you, such as recognizing you as a frequent user of our Website. Some of the cookies we use are associated with your account with us (including personal information about you), and other cookies are not.
We may use “session cookies” (cookies that last until you close your browser) or “persistent cookies” (cookies that last until you or your browser delete them). Examples of the information we collect and analyze from cookies include your activity on our Website, including the URL you come from and go to next (whether this URL is on our site or not).
- Experience data: We may collect other information that is voluntarily provided by you from time to time if you respond to surveys, polls or questionnaires, and/or Website registration forms. Such information may include personal preferences, opinions and experiences with our products and services, and may be provided anonymously.
We also may use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services (behavioral tracking). Contact us at [email protected] for information on how you can opt out of behavioral tracking on this website and how we respond to web browser signals and other mechanisms that enable consumers to exercise choice about behavioral tracking.
The information we collect automatically is statistical data and may include personal information, but we may maintain it or associate it with personal information we collect in other ways or receive from third parties. It helps us to improve our Website and to deliver a better and more personalized service, including by enabling us to:
- Estimate our audience size and usage patterns.
- Store information about your preferences, allowing us to customize our Website according to your individual interests.
- Speed up your searches.

Choices About How We Use and Disclose Your Information
We strive to provide you with choices regarding the information you provide to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your information:
Tracking Technologies and Advertising
We do not control third parties' collection or use of your information to serve interest-based advertising. However these third parties may provide you with ways to choose not to have your information collected or used in this way. You can opt out of receiving targeted ads from members of the Network Advertising Initiative ("NAI") on the NAI's website.

We may use non-personally identifiable information collected to generate statistics on merchant activity including transaction patterns, but these research initiatives will never include any personally identifiable information without your authorized consent.

- Require you to reenter you i3 Merchant Solutions™ password after a certain period of time has elapsed to protect you against others accidentally accessing your account contents.
We may use the information we have collected from you to enable us to display advertisements to our advertisers' target audiences. Even though we do not disclose your personal information for these purposes without your consent, if you click on or otherwise interact with an advertisement, the advertiser may assume that you meet its target criteria.
Email communications. If you send us an email with questions or comments, we may use your email address to respond to your questions or comments, and we may save your questions or comments for future reference. We may email you when:
- you request a particular service or sign up for a feature that involves email communications,

- we are sending you information about our other products and services, or
- you consented to being contacted by email for a particular purpose.
You may unsubscribe from receiving future commercial email communications from us by clicking the "unsubscribe" link included at the bottom of any marketing emails we send, or by emailing us as provided in the Contact Us section below. However, we reserve the right to send you transactional emails such as customer service communications in connection with the products you have purchased. For security reasons, we do not recommend that you send personal information, such as passwords, social security numbers, or bank account information, to us by email.
Sharing with your consent. By using our services, you consent to our sharing your personally identifiable information with our partners and affiliates as necessary to provide their services to you.
Under no circumstances will we rent or sell your personally identifiable information to any other third parties for any other purpose without your consent, except to a reputable credit bureau or similar information reporting agency.
When we transfer our assets. As we continue to develop our business, we may sell or purchase assets. If another entity acquires us or all (or substantially all) of our assets, the personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information we have about you will be transferred to and used by this acquiring entity. Also, if any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding is brought by or against us, all such information may be considered an asset of ours and as such may be sold or transferred to third parties.
Where required by law. We reserve the right to disclose any personally identifiable or non-personally identifiable information about you if we are required to do so by law, with respect to copyright and other intellectual property infringement claims, or if we believe that such action is necessary to: (a) fulfill a government request; (b) conform with the requirements of the law or legal process; (c) protect or defend our legal rights or property, our Website, or other customers; or (d) in an emergency to protect the health and safety of our Website's customers or the general public.
Your choices about your account and information
Our goal is to provide you with simple and meaningful choices about how your information is used. If you are a customer, you control your choices by your selections when you set up your account with us, for example to control the email you receive from us. Your account information will be retained in our database and maintained for future orders or transactions and as required under applicable law, rules, and/or regulations. It is your responsibility to ensure that the account information is accurate and you should update the information as necessary. We do retain non-personally identifiable information concerning transactions; for example, we retain non-personally identifiable data concerning the number, frequency, size and purpose of transactions.
California Do-Not-Track Disclosures
Certain browsers may offer you the option of providing notice to websites that you do not wish for your online activities to be tracked for preference based advertising purposes (“DNT Notice”). Some browsers are, by default, set to provide a DNT Notice, whether or not that reflects your preference. Providing DNT Notice is often touted as a means to ensure that cookies, web beacons and similar technology are not used for preference based advertising purposes – that is, to restrict the collection of information your online activities for advertising purposes. Since we do not engage in targeted advertising, we do not track your online activity while on our Website for those purposes.
Your California Privacy Rights:
Residents of the State of California, under certain provisions of the California Civil Code, have the right to request from companies conducting business in California a list of all third parties to which the company has disclosed certain personally identifiable information, as defined under California law during the preceding year for third party direct marketing purposes. You are limited to one request per calendar year. In your request, please attest to the fact that you are a California resident and provide a current California address for our response. You may request the information in writing at [email protected].
Updating or Reviewing Your Information
To update your customer information (name, address, telephone number, and email address), please contact us at the address below. A limited amount of transaction history may also be available to you at your request. To protect your privacy and to comply with federal regulations, we will need to verify your identity before you update or review your information.
Data Security Measures
We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure. All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers behind firewalls. Any personal information will be encrypted using SSL technology.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Website. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Website.
