Privacy Policy (established July 1, 2012)

This website and the various content, features and services offered on this website (collectively, the “Site”) is owned and operated by Happy House (“HH” or “we”). HH recognizes the importance of online privacy to our users, so we have established this Privacy Policy to let you know what Personal Information (as defined below) and other information we may collect from you on the Site and how we may use and share that information. Please take a moment to review the terms of our Privacy Policy. By using the Site, you agree to accept the terms of our Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Site. This Privacy Policy applies only to information that we collect on the Site and does not apply to information which we may collect by other means.

Personal Information

Information We May Collect:
Personal Information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, a home or other physical address, a phone number or an e-mail address. In general, you can visit the Site without telling us who you are or revealing any Personal Information about yourself. However, in order to access certain information, services or features that may be contained on the Site, we may require you to provide Personal Information. For example, we will collect certain Personal Information if you choose to sign up for our e-mail list, participate in contests, or other promotions, make a donation, or send questions, requests or comments to us via e-mail.

The Site may feature surveys from time to time, such as surveys to help us better understand what you and other visitors to the Site wish to see on the Site. If you choose to fill out a survey, we may also collect certain demographic information (such as gender or age) and information about your interests and preferences (“preferences information”). If we ever use any demographic or preferences information together with any Personal Information, then such demographic and preferences information will be treated as Personal Information under this Privacy Policy.
We may sometimes receive information about you from our business partners, outside websites or other third parties. We may combine Personal Information that you provide to us on the Site with such information from third parties. Our online use of such information from third parties will comply with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

How We May Use Your Information:
If you provide us with Personal Information, we will retain and use that information for certain limited purposes. For example, we will use your Personal Information to fulfill or respond to any services or information that you request, such as entering you into a contest, answering your questions or sending e-mails to our mailing list subscribers. For certain contests or other features that may be offered on the Site, we may post certain limited information about you on the Site. For example, if you are a winner or runner-up in our cartoon caption contest, we will post your full name and your city/town, state, province and/or country. This information will be viewable by all users of the Site, so if you are not comfortable disclosing such information to the public, please do not participate in such contests or features. We may also use Personal Information to ensure compliance with our policies and applicable law.

In addition, we may send you periodic communications by e-mail or regular mail, such as news about upcoming events, offers or other information related to the Site. If you wish to opt out of receiving our mailing list e-mails or other promotional e-mails from us at any time, simply follow the instructions for doing so included in the e-mails. We reserve the right to send you certain communications relating to the Site, such as service announcements or similar administrative or transactional messages, without offering you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving them.

With Whom We May Share Your Information:
We do not share your personal information with any other businesses or third-party vendors. We reserve the right to disclose visitor information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other visitors, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. We also reserve the right to disclose visitor information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.

Aggregate Information:
From time to time, we may collect general, non-personal, statistical information about the use of the Site, such as how many visitors visit a specific page on the Site, how long they stay on that page and which hyperlinks, if any, they “click” on. We collect this information through the use of “cookies” and other tracking technologies, which are discussed in greater detail below. We collect this information in order to determine which areas of the Site are most popular and to enhance the Site for visitors. We may group this information into aggregate visitor data in order to describe the use of the Site to our existing or potential business partners, sponsors, advertisers or other third parties, or in response to a government request. We may also group responses to surveys and other demographic and preferences information that we collect from visitors into aggregate data for the same purposes. However, please be assured that this aggregate data will in no way personally identify you or any other visitors to the Site.

Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies:
Some of our web pages utilize “cookies” and other tracking technologies. A cookie is a small text file that a website transfers to an individual’s hard drive for record-keeping purposes. For example, we may use cookies to collect information about website activity. Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them. You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser. However, please be aware that some features of the Site may not function properly or may be slower if you refuse cookies. You may occasionally get cookies from our advertisers or other third parties with links on the Site. We do not control these cookies. The use of advertising cookies sent by third-party servers is standard in the Internet industry.

Tracking technologies may record information such as Internet domain and host names; Internet protocol (IP) addresses; browser software and operating system types; clickstream patterns; and dates and times that our Site is accessed. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web. Web servers, the big computers that “serve up” webpages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address.

It is not our practice to link the information we record using cookies or other tracking technologies to any Personal Information you submit while on the Site. However, we reserve the right to use cookies, IP addresses and other tracking technologies to identify a visitor only when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with the Site’s policies, to protect the Service, our customers or others, or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.

Links to Other Sites; Public Venues:
Please be aware that when you are on the Site, you could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. These other sites may send their own cookies to visitors, collect data or solicit Personal Information. The privacy policies of these other sites may be significantly different from this Privacy Policy. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these other sites and cannot guarantee the security of any of your Personal Information collected there.

Security:
We intend to take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the Personal Information that you share with us from unauthorized access or disclosure. When you transmit Personal Information from your PC to our servers, your information is protected by a “firewall” (a combination of computer hardware and software that helps keep unauthorized visitors from accessing information within our computer network). Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and cannot be responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your Personal Information.

Children’s Privacy:
We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from anyone under 13 years of age, except for the limited circumstances described below. In the event a child under the age of 13 submits a question to us on the Site and identifies his or her age, we may use the child’s e-mail address for the sole purpose of responding to the child’s question on a one-time-only basis. However, we will not use the child’s e-mail address to re-contact the child and we will delete it from our records once we have responded. If we become aware that we have unknowingly collected Personal Information from a child under the age of 13, we will make reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy:
The terms of this Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will notify you of any material changes to this Privacy Policy by posting a notice on the homepage of the Site for a reasonable period of time after such changes are made that this Privacy Policy has been updated, and by changing the “Last Modified” date at the top of this Privacy Policy. We encourage you to check this page periodically for any changes. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes.

Governing Law:
This Privacy Policy and the privacy practices of HH will be subject exclusively to the laws of the State of California within the United States of America. HH makes no representation that this Privacy Policy and such practices comply with the laws of any other state or country. Visitors who use the Site and reside outside the United States do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable. If you reside outside of the United States, by using our Site, you consent to the transfer and use of your information outside your country.
