1. The Information HappyGroup Collects
HappyGroup collects information from you in connection with the Site and HappyGroup Platform in the following manner:
User-provided Information: If you decide to use the HappyGroup Site, you may be asked to provide to HappyGroup what is generally called "personally identifiable" information (such as your name, email address, postal mailing address, telephone number and billing information). If you upload or download certain content or products from the HappyGroup Site, enter contests or sweepstakes, take advantage of promotions, respond to surveys, register and subscribe for certain services, or otherwise use the features and functionality of the HappyGroup Site. At HappyGroup’s request, you may also agree to provide to HappyGroup demographic information and information related to your favorite social networking site such as the name, address and description.
Web Beacons: Our Site may contain electronic image requests (called a "single-pixel gif" or "web beacon" request) that allow us to count page views and to access cookies. Any electronic image viewed as part of a web page, including an ad banner, can act as a web beacon. Web beacons are typically 1-by-1 pixel files (so small that you would likely not realize that they are there), but their presence can usually be seen within a browser by clicking on "View" and then on "Source." We may also include web beacons in HTML-formatted newsletters that we send to opt-in subscribers in order to count how many newsletters have been read. HappyGroup web beacons do not collect, gather, monitor or share any personally identifiable information about our Users, they are just the technique we use to compile anonymous information about Site and HappyGroup usage.
2. The Way HappyGroup Uses Information
HappyGroup uses the information that you provide or that we collect to operate, maintain, enhance, and provide all of the features and services found on the HappyGroup Platform and Site, to allow us to charge and invoice you, as well as to track user-generated content and Users to the extent necessary to comply as a service provider with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
If you have provided us your email address, we will use your email address, without further consent, for administrative communications such as notifying you of major HappyGroup Platform or Site updates, for customer service purposes, to address copyright infringement or defamation issues, or to contact you regarding any content that you have posted to or downloaded from the HappyGroup Platform or Site.
HappyGroup uses all of the information that we collect to understand the usage trends and preferences of our Users, to improve the way the HappyGroup Platform and Site works and looks, and to create new features and functionality.
HappyGroup may use "Automatically Collected" information and "Cookies" information to: (a) automatically provide you the latest version of the HappyGroup application on your system; (b) remember your information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you access the HappyGroup Platform or Site; (c) monitor aggregate Site usage metrics such as total number of visitors and pages accessed; and (d) track your entries, submissions, and status in any promotions or other activities in connection with your usage of the Site or HappyGroup Platform.
3. When HappyGroup Discloses Information
HappyGroup does not share your personally identifiable information with other organizations for their marketing or promotional uses without your prior express consent. Please be aware, however, that any personally identifiable information that you voluntarily choose to display on any publicly available portion of the HappyGroup Platform and Site (such as the blog area) or related sites becomes publicly available and may be collected and used by others without restriction. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these areas of the site.
We post customer testimonials on our web site which may contain personally identifiable information. We do obtain the customer's consent via email prior to posting the testimonial to post their name along with their testimonial.
HappyGroup may share aggregate statistical information gathered from you and other Users with advertisers, business partners, sponsor or other third parties. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of visitors visited a certain area on a web site.
HappyGroup may disclose User information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws (such as U.S. Copyright law) or respond to a court order, judicial or other government subpoena, or warrant in the manner required by the requesting entity.
In addition, because HappyGroup operates globally, we may make information we gather available to worldwide business units and affiliates in connection with your use of the HappyGroup Platform and Site.
4. Your Choices
You may, of course, decline to share your personally identifiable information with HappyGroup, in which case HappyGroup will not be able to provide to you some of the features and functionality found on the HappyGroup Platform and Site. You may update, correct, or delete inaccuracies in your user information and preferences on the account information page under "My Account - Account Settings".
We recommend you do not divulge your account password to anyone. HappyGroup will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited telephone call or e-mail. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR MAINTAINING THE SECRECY OF YOUR UNIQUE PASSWORD AND ACCOUNT INFORMATION AT ALL TIMES.
5. Data Security
HappyGroup uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personally identifiable information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to HappyGroup, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission of such information, HappyGroup makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number, and national ID) on our registration, account update pages or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
If HappyGroup learns of a security systems breach, then we will attempt to notify you electronically through the information that you have provided to us so that you can take appropriate protective steps. HappyGroup may post a notice on the Site if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive a free written notice of a security breach you should notify us at email@example.com
