This policy describes how Happen Business may collect and use your personal information (if you supply it to us via this website) to provide services that you request or when you choose to provide us with your personal information.

Information collection

Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, email address, a home, postal or other physical address, other contact information, title, birth date, gender, occupation, industry, personal interests, other information when needed to provide a service you requested.

When you browse this website, you do so anonymously, unless you have previously indicated that you wish Happen Business to remember your personal information, or log-in and password. Happen Business may log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to:

a)   give us an idea of which part of the website you visit and how long you spend there, or
b)   to remember your identity for log-in purposes (provided you have instructed us to do so via a check box on the log-in page).

Like many other commercial websites, the Happen Business website may use a standard technology called a ‘cookie’ to collect information about how you use the site or for the purposes of remembering your identity for log-in convenience (see Cookies policy below).

Happen Business collects personal information when you ask to be included in an email or other mailing list (such as newsletter or media alert subscriber list), when you request a product demonstration or make on online enquiry, or when you submit your personal information to Happen Business Research for any other reason. From time to time, Happen Business receives personal information from business partners and vendors. Happen Business only uses such information if it has been collected in accordance with acceptable privacy practices consistent with this Policy and applicable laws.

Notice

When personal information is collected, Happen Business will not transfer your personal information to third parties without your consent, except under the limited conditions described under the discussion entitled 'Information sharing and disclosure' below.

If you choose to provide Happen Business with your personal information, Happen Business may only transfer that information within Happen Business or to Happen Business partners and third-party service providers with your permission.

When applicable, Happen Business will provide you with the opportunity to 'opt-in' to various subscription lists or email alert services. This means Happen Business will require your affirmative action to indicate your consent before your information is used for purposes other than the purpose for which it was submitted.

Happen Business will always give you the opportunity to 'opt-out' of receiving marketing information, newsletters, media information and promotional offers. This means Happen Business assumes you have given your consent to collect and use your information in accordance with this Policy unless you take affirmative action to indicate that you do not consent, for instance by clicking or checking the appropriate option or box at the point of collection.

From time to time, Happen Business may be required to provide Personally Identifiable Information in response to a court order, subpoena, or government investigation. Happen Business also reserves the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that Happen Business, in good faith, believes to be unlawful. Happen Business may release certain Personally Identifiable Information when Happen Business believes that such release is reasonably necessary to enforce or apply Terms and Conditions or to protect the rights, property, and safety of others and ourselves.
