Third-Party Sites, Applications and Services

Our Services may contain links to other websites and services, and some of our Services may be accessed through third-party applications or services. Any information that you provide on or to a third-party website, application, or service (“Third-Party Services”) is provided directly to the owner or operator of such Third-Party Services and is subject to that party’s privacy policy. Even if such Third-Party Services are accessible through our Services, our Privacy Policy does not apply to such Third-Party Services and we shall not be held responsible for the content, privacy, or security practices and policies of such Third-Party Services.

If you don’t know your administrator, you can contact HappyOrNot at support@happy-or-not.com  with your request. We’ll take steps to delete your information as soon as is practicable, but some information may remain in archived/backup copies for our records or as otherwise required by law. Also, if your account is associated as a billing account, we may keep your personal information until any pending financial transactions are closed.

Security of your information

We take reasonable measures to protect the information that we collect from or about you (including your PII) from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. Our Services have security measures in place to help protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the Data under our control. When our Services are accessed using a supported browser, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology protects information using both server authentication and data encryption to help ensure that Data are safe, secure, and available only to You. HappyOrNot also implements a security method based on dynamic data and encoded session identifications, and hosts the Site in a server environment designed to be secure and that uses a firewall and other technology designed to prevent interference or access from outside intruders. HappyOrNot provides unique user names and passwords that must be entered each time a customer logs in to our Service. These safeguards help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of Data. While we take reasonable efforts to guard your Personal Information, no security system is impenetrable, and, due to the inherent nature of the Internet as an open global communications vehicle, we cannot guarantee that information provided during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our systems or otherwise in our care will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others, such as hackers. In addition, we cannot guarantee that any incidentally-collected Personal Information you choose to store in Websites or SaaS Products are maintained at levels of protection to meet specific needs or obligations you may have relating to that information. HappyOrNot may use third party vendors to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology required to provide the Service. When You use certain HappyOrNot Services, Your Data are retained on our third-party data center’s servers.

Our policy towards children

HappyOrNot Services are not directed to individuals under 18. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 18. If we become aware that a child under 18 has provided us with Personal Information, we will take steps to delete such information. If you become aware that a child has provided us with Personal Information, please contact our Support Services.

Sensitive Information

Do not send us or disclose to us any sensitive information (e.g., social security numbers, information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or other beliefs, health, biometrics or genetic characteristics, criminal background, or trade union membership) on or through the Sites or via other means.

Changes to Privacy Policy

Any information that we collect is subject to the privacy policy in effect at the time such information is collected. We may, however, modify and revise this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make any material changes to this Privacy Policy, we’ll notify you of such changes by posting them on the Services (for example, on our website). You are also advised to consult this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes.
