Your privacy is very important. At Home Sweet Happy, I have a few fundamental principles that I follow:
- I don’t ask you for personal information unless it is truly needed. (I can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
- I don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop my page, or protect my rights.
- I don’t store personal information on my servers unless required for the on-going operation of my site.
Home Sweet Happy operates the blog https://homesweethappy.com/. It is Home Sweet Happy’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information I may collect while operating the website.
Like most website operators, Home Sweet Happy 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. Home Sweet Happy’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Home Sweet Happy’s visitors use the website. From time to time, Home Sweet Happy may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Home Sweet Happy also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for users leaving comments on our blogs. Home Sweet Happy only discloses commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to the Home Sweet Happy website choose to interact with Home Sweet Happy in ways that require Home Sweet Happy to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Home Sweet Happy gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, visitors who comment on the blog are asked to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive updates via email will have their email collected. In each case, Home Sweet Happy collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Home Sweet Happy. Home Sweet Happy 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.
Home Sweet Happy may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Home Sweet Happy may monitor the most popular pages on the site or use spam screened by a screening service to help identify spam. Home Sweet Happy may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Home Sweet Happy does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Home Sweet Happy 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 Home Sweet Happy’s behalf or to provide services available on the Home Sweet Happy site, 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 the Home Sweet Happy website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Home Sweet Happy 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, Home Sweet Happy discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Home Sweet Happy believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Home Sweet Happy, third parties or the public at large. If you provided your email address in order to receive updates on the site, you may occasionally receive an email from me on the latest news, blog posts, or other noteworthy items about the website. I primarily use the Home Sweet Happy social media channels to communicate this type of information, so this type of email will be kept to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support 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. Home Sweet Happy takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Home Sweet Happy, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Home Sweet Happy ceases to operate, 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 Home Sweet Happy may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
