1happylife believes your privacy is of the utmost importance. Please read the following to learn more about how we collect, protect, use, and share the personal information gathered on 1happylife.
Children 13 and Under
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") governs information gathering online from or about children under the age of 13. Verifiable consent from a child's parent or guardian is required before collecting, using, or disclosing personal information from a child under the age of 13 ("child" or "children"). 1happylife requires verification of a child's parent or legal guardian ("Parent") prior to an account being created for a child (a "Child Member"). If parental verification is not complete or successful the child's account will not be activated and the child will not have access to those areas of the site that require account membership.
This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that 1happylife does not own or control or to people that 1happylife does not employ or manage.
1happylife collects a wide variety of personally identifiable information from Members (including Child Members), including, but not necessarily limited to, your first name and last name, middle initial, email address, street address, username, password, date of birth, and phone number. Personally identifiable information is collected when you register for a 1happylife website account, when you use certain 1happylife website products or services, when you visit 1happylife website pages, and when you enter promotions.
If the user is a child we require the Parent to submit the user's personal information during the registration process after receiving Parental consent to collect such information. If payment is required for your level of use, at the time of registration, we collect payment information (e.g., credit card and billing address) from users over 18 years of age or from Parents of users under 18 years of age, but such information is handled and stored by a third-party payment processor, not 1happylife. Such third-party payment processor does not have a right to share your personally identifiable information.
1happylife is a website designed to facilitate the management of your blended family's life through features which may include, but are not necessarily limited to, schedule management tools, file sharing capabilities for a wide variety of information (e.g. addresses, childcare provider information, doctor information, emergency contacts, immunization records), expense management tools and communication tools such as instant messaging. While the information within these classifications may be required for the use of specific services or features of the website, you are not required to use all of the services and features. Once you register with 1happylife and become a Member, you are not anonymous to us.
1happylife uses information that is collected about you (including children's information) to customize the content and features you see, to fulfill your requests for certain products and services, to provide electronic notification services for events in your calendar, to communicate with you and for billing purposes. We may also use personally identifiable information (including children's information) to help us improve the functionality and materials offered at 1happylife, as well as marketing and promotional purposes (e.g. we may ask users via a link to become fans of or to like us on a social network).
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Except as specifically stated herein, 1happylife will not share your personally identifiable information with third parties. We will never sell or rent your personally identifiable information to third-party marketing companies.
We retain personally identifying information collected from children for only as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose for which the information was collected and delete the information using reasonable measures to protect against its unauthorized access or use once it is no longer needed.
SPECIFIC PERSONS WITH ACCESS TO PERSONAL INFORMATION
As noted above, if payment is required for your level of use, we use a third-party payment processor to collect payment information from Members over 18 years of age and from Parents of Members under 18 years of age. The third party payment processor we presently use is 2checkout.com.
We share names, addresses, and last four of social security numbers, with a third-party company, Electronic Verification Systems, which assists us in Parental Verifications.
We also use IDL Web Host as our hosting provider.
Other than us, Electronic Verification Systems, and 2checkout.com, there are no entities or other persons collecting or maintaining personal information through 1happylife. Any inquiries from Parents regarding our information collection, sharing and disclosure practices may be directed to:
1happylife, L.L.C., P.O. Box 51193, Mesa, AZ 85208, 480 331-4787 or contact us here.
If you have any questions concerning our partners, you can reach them as provided below:
HOW WE NOTIFY AND OBTAIN CONSENT FROM PARENTS FOR THE COLLECTION OF INFORMATION ABOUT CHILDREN
HOW PARENTS CAN ACCESS, CHANGE OR DELETE PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION ABOUT THEIR CHILDREN
At any time Parents can refuse to permit us to collect personal information from their Children and can request that any personal information we have collected be deleted from our records. We use two methods to allow Parents to access, change, or delete the personally identifiable information we have collected from their Children:
A parent can access, change or delete his or her Child's personal information by logging on to their Parent Member account and editing the Child Member account's information.
PARENT PARTICIPATION IN CHILD'S USE OF 1HAPPYLIFE
We encourage Parents to spend time online with their Children and to participate in the activities that may be offered on 1happylife. No personally identifying information should be submitted to or posted on 1happylife by Children without the consent of their Parent. We encourage Parents to monitor their Children's online use, and to help us protect their privacy by instructing them never to provide personally identifying information on 1happylife or any other website without permission. We are also prohibited by law from conditioning a Child's participation in any activity on 1happylife on the Child disclosing more personally identifying information than is reasonably necessary to participate in such activity.
Parents should instruct their Children not to give their name, email address, home address, telephone number or any other personally identifying information that would enable someone to contact the Child either online or offline, without first asking the parent or guardian for permission.
We may disclose a Child's personally-identifying 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 users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. We may also disclose a Child's personally identifying information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
Cookies and Tracking Information
The 1happylife website may set and access 1happylife website cookies on your computer. The 1happylife website allows other companies that are presenting advertisements on some of our pages to set and access their cookies in your computer. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide customized features to you. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on's settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer. However, cookies allow you to take full advantage of 1happylife's best features, and we recommend that you leave them turned on.
Prior to your creating a Member account, we may employ cookie technology on the website to track non-personal information such as type of browser, operating system, domain names and IP addresses. Prior to your becoming a Member, we do not link IP addresses to any personally-identifiable information. However, once you register and affirmatively opt-in and provide personal information about yourself, such personal information provided by you or collected through the cookie technology may be used for marketing purposes back to you. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other marketing communications from us, please opt-out.
1happylife does not collect geo-location information from its users that is precise enough to identify the name of the street and city in which the user is accessing 1happylife.
Do Not Track (DNT) signals are signals sent through a browser informing us that you do not want to be tracked. We do not assign any meaning to DNT signals.
Your Ability to Edit and Delete Your Account Information and Preferences
1happylife gives you the ability to edit your Member account information and preferences at any time, including whether you want 1happylife to contact you about special promotions and new products.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES
We have implemented technical, administrative and physical security measures that are designed to protect Member information from unauthorized access, use, disclosure or modification.
For example, your 1happylife website Account Information is password protected for your privacy and security. It is your responsibility to keep your password confidential and not disclose it to any other person. You are responsible for all persons using your user name and password. Please advise us immediately if you believe your user name and password have been compromised.
Further, because of the sensitivity of information stored on the 1happylife website, 1happylife uses SSL encryption to protect data transmissions.
From time to time, we review our security procedures to consider appropriate new technology and methods. Please be aware that, despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. Neither people nor security systems are foolproof, including encryption systems. In addition, people can commit intentional crimes, make mistakes, or fail to follow policies. Therefore, while 1happylife uses commercially reasonable efforts to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If applicable law imposes any non-disclaimable duty to protect your information, you agree that intentional misconduct will be the standards used to measure 1happylife's compliance with this duty.
1happylife uses third party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology required to run the website, including the use of IDL Web Host to host information you provide to us in cloud-based servers. The technical processing and transmission of 1happylife, including your content, may involve (a) transmissions over various networks, and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices. Currently, 1happylife and its authorized third party vendors and hosting partners process data (including possibly your personal information) on servers in the United States of America and possibly in other countries. In some cases, personal information may be processed and stored outside your own country, including without limitation in the United States.
