Privacy, Terms and Conditions
Are you under 13?
We want to make sure that you stay safe. That's why it's our policy that you must never share any information about yourself on any Happy Brain, Inc website.
That means if you're under 13 years of age, do NOT:
- Post comments
- Upload any information
- Submit your email address or other personal information for any reason
- Make a purchase
If you are under 13 and wish to participate, you must have an adult to do so for you.
We respect your privacy and want to make sure that you have complete control over your personal information.
The purpose of this document is to make sure that we (the people at Happy Brain, Inc who bring you the website) are communicating clearly about the nature of Internet communication and the efforts we make to protect your personal information.
First of all, we want to be very clear that we will never share any of your information with any third party to market their product to you.
We wouldn't want someone to do that to us, and we won't do it to you.
Of course in order to use the Internet, this website included, some information must be exchanged just to send you each webpage. So we wanted to tell you what information is exchanged and how we work to keep that information safe.
The information that is exchanged
We think it is important to discuss how the Internet works.
It may seem obvious, but the Internet works by transferring information between you and the website you are accessing (a website from Happy Brain, Inc in this case) every time you visit any given website.
In order to let you view any webpage, your web browser must connect with one or more servers on the Internet that host the website and send the Internet Protocol (IP) address that your Internet Service Provider (ISP) has associated with your Internet service. A log is kept on the website’s servers with details about each time a page or other resource from the website is accessed.
Of course, this is not unique to Happy Brain, Inc’s websites. This is something that happens every time you visit any website on the Internet.
By using this website, you agree to share your IP address with this Happy Brain, Inc website. If you choose not to share your IP address with this website, you will have to cease use this website. We'll miss you.
The other thing that your browser will send is any cookies that have been created and stored in your web browser from visiting one of Happy Brain, Inc’s websites. This is another one of the things about how the Internet works. When you go to a webpage, the server that is sending you the contents of that webpage has no idea of anything that you did on any previous webpage.
That means that in order to do certain things, such as give you access to a free tutorial webpage based on whether you've signed up on a previous page, there has to be a way to "remember" that your browser has been to the website before and that you signed up.
That's where cookies come in. They make your browser remember that it's already been to other pages on this website that you are using and so the appropriate options are available on other pages that you visit.
If you choose to not share cookies with one of Happy Brain, Inc’s websites, you may turn off cookies in your browser's preferences. Of course, there will be a number of features on the Happy Brain, Inc website that will not function for you if you choose to disable cookies in your browser.
Other things that you may choose to share
Now, we think the Internet is all about sharing with other people and being part of the communities that enrich our lives.
Of course, being a part of that experience requires participation. As an Internet citizen, you may browse webpages, watch videos, share links, post comments, post your own images and videos, and maybe even tell others a little about yourself.
And for each of these types of things it's entirely up to you whether you choose to share and participate.
Of course, if you do choose to share in a public forum, such as to post a comment, image, video or any other content, you must assume that it will be publicly visible.
Some specific ads may be shown to you on third-party sites using the Teracent cookie. You may opt out of the Teracent cookie by visiting the Teracent opt-out page: http://www.teracent.com/about-us/opt-out
In order to improve the experience of users to Happy Brain, Inc websites, we use Google Analytics to analyze the web traffic on many of our websites. You may choose to opt out of Google Analytics with the tool available at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
Requests by Government organizations
Do not submit any information—or engage in any activity—on any Happy Brain, Inc website that is illegal or that you would not want known to a government organization.
Hey, we don't think it will ever happen (we certainly hope not), but we will submit any requested information to government organizations as required by law. This takes precedence over any prior statements of confidentiality.
