Privacy Policy:

Intentional Happiness ("Intentional Happiness") operates choose2bhappy.net and may operate other websites. It is Intentional Happiness' policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Intentional Happiness collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Intentional Happiness' purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Intentional Happiness' visitors use its website. From time to time, Intentional Happiness may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Intentional Happiness also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on choose2bhappy.net blogs/sites. Intentional Happiness only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Intentional Happiness' websites choose to interact with Intentional Happiness in ways that require Intentional Happiness to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Intentional Happiness gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at choose2bhappy.net to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Intentional Happiness are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Intentional Happiness collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Intentional Happiness. Intentional Happiness does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Intentional Happiness may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Intentional Happiness may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Intentional Happiness does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Intentional Happiness discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Intentional Happiness' behalf or to provide services available at Intentional Happiness' websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Intentional Happiness' websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Intentional Happiness will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Intentional Happiness discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Intentional Happiness believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Intentional Happiness, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Intentional Happiness website and have supplied your email address, Intentional Happiness may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Intentional Happiness and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Intentional Happiness takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Intentional Happiness visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Intentional Happiness' websites, with the drawback that certain features of Intentional Happiness' websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Intentional Happiness, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Intentional Happiness goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Intentional Happiness may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
