Your privacy is very important to us. At OptinChat we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
Happymatic (“Happymatic”) operates several websites including optinchat.com. It is Happymatic’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Happymatic 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. Happymatic’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Happymatic’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Happymatic may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Happymatic also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Happymatic 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 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 Happymatic’s websites choose to interact with Happymatic in ways that require Happymatic to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Happymatic gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive OptinChat updates via email, we collect their emails. For example, when you to sign up for an account, we ask for personal information, like your name, email address, telephone number or credit card to store with your account. When visitors comment on our blog, we ask them to provide a username and email address. For those who wish to receive OptinChat updates via email, we collect their emails.
In each case, Happymatic collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Happymatic. Happymatic 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.
Happymatic may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Happymatic may monitor the most popular pages on the optinchat.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Happymatic may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Happymatic does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Information We Share
Happymatic 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 Happymatic’s behalf or to provide services available at Happymatic’s 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 Happymatic’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
Happymatic 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, Happymatic discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Happymatic believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Happymatic, third parties or the public at large.
If you are a registered user of an Happymatic website and have supplied your email address, Happymatic 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 Happymatic and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email 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.
Happymatic takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information, as discussed below.
We work hard to protect our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of information we hold, in particular:
We encrypt many of our services using SSL.
We review our information collection, storage, and processing procedures, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems.
We restrict access to personal information to Happymatic employees, contractors, and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for us, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.
If Happymatic, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Happymatic 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 Happymatic may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to Disqus anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
Happymatic uses Google Analytics in its application. Campaign analytics are tracked through Google Analytics for our clients. Happymatic utilizes the Google Analytics Reporting API to gather analytics about your campaigns and present them in an actionable way via charts and conversion statistics. Happymatic discloses client Google Analytics information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Happymatic’s behalf or to provide the services available at Happymatic’s websites.
Use of Google API’s
We use it to connect to Google services and store them safely on our database. We don’t share this data to any third party. We use it whenever the integration needs it.
Compliance and cooperation with regulatory authorities
