Privacy Policy

04.07.2016

Welcome to Happy Boards (“Happy Boards,” “Happy Medium,” “we,” “us,” or “our”). Happy Boards provide a completely customizable way to share your message on TV.  Happy Boards are the place to welcome guests, share social posts or pictures, and to provide information.  Your Happy Board can say whatever you want it to.

This Privacy Policy explains how we, collect, use, share, and protect information you provide when you access and use your Happy Board through our mobile services, web site, and any software provided on or in connection with our platforms and services, which we will refer to collectively as the Happy Boards Services or Services in this Policy, and your choices about the collection and use of your information.

By using our Services, you understand and agree that we are providing a platform for you to access and use information, text, graphics, photos, and other materials that are uploaded, downloaded, or appearing on the Services, including what is displayed on a Happy Board, which we will collectively refer
to as the Content.  This means that others, including customers, patrons, clients, bystanders, visitors, employees, staff, and the like, will be able to see the Content you directly and indirectly choose to display on the Happy Board using the Services.

Note that using other services, such as Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, in conjunction with the Services can result in your information being collected
and used beyond the scope of this Policy.  We have no control over how those entities use the information you share through those services.  As such, we suggest you review the Privacy Policy for each service you access and use in conjunction with our Services.

this information for statistical purposes only.

B. ANALYTICAL INFORMATION

We use analytical tools to help us to measure the traffic and usage trends on the Services.  These analytical tools work by collecting information sent by your device or our Service that assist us in improving the Service.  We collect and use this information within the aggregate along with other Happy Boards users’ information so that it cannot reasonably be used to identify any particular individual user.

and other information related to the Services.  We may also use this information from emails that we send to you in order to determine what emails are opened and what links are clicked within particular emails.  The collection of this information allows us to collect more accurate information to use for
improving the Happy Board Services.

D. DEVICE IDENTIFIERS

Device identifiers are files or similar data structures that are stored or associated with your mobile devices, such as your tablet or phone, which are used to uniquely identify that particular mobile device.  A device identifier may be associated with hardware within the device, the operating system of the device, or may be sent to the device by the Happy Boards Services.

or more device identifiers.  We use device identifiers to collect information about how you use the Services, which allows us to improve the Services.

If device identifiers are disabled on your mobile device it may impair or disable some of the Services’ features.

E. METADATA

Metadata is commonly viewed as the technical data that is associated with Content, for instance it describes how, when, and by whom a piece of Content was collected and how that Content is formatted.  We may collect the metadata inherently included in your Content or actively added by you through geotagging, comments, hashtags, and the like.  The collected metadata is
used as part of the Services functionality and we may also use it to improve
the features available through the Services.
