Use of Agents
IIL uses an outside shipping company to transport orders, and a credit card processing company to complete the transaction for goods and services. IIL also uses outside companies to enable “live chat” service (Hotjar), gather information needed to serve you as a client (Jotform), analyze how you use IIL services and to gather information for targeted advertising and other marketing initiatives (Google Analytics). These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any other purposes.

IIL’s websites may contain links to other websites that are not under IIL’s control. These websites have their own policies regarding privacy, and IIL recommends that you review those policies. IIL has no responsibility for linked websites and provides these links solely for informational purposes and for the convenience of visitors.
IIL reserves the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when IIL believes that disclosure is necessary to protect its rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on IIL’s website. IIL is liable for appropriate onward transfers of personal data to third parties.
