Privacy Policy

Last update: 25 May 2018

This document explains how and why we collect information from our users, how we use it, and how you can access or change it.

Your Privacy

  • IT'S HAPPENING! ("IH!" or "we") takes your privacy seriously and we will not share, rent or sell your email address or any other specific information that you provide to any third party, except as needed to deliver our newsletter.

GDPR

  • The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became effective on the 25th of May 2018 and seeks to strengthen and standardize user data privacy across all EU member states.

  • IH! is fully committed to being in compliance with the GDPR. If you have any questions regarding our policies please contact hello@itshappening.co.

What Information We Collect

  • On our site, there are pages where you will be requested to enter private information in order to receive specific benefits of information in response. By agreeing to our Privacy Policy, we may collect, store, retain, parse and process:

  • "Personal Data" meaning information that identifies you as an individual, such as your email address and interests.

  • Non-personally identifiable data ("Other Data"), meaning any information that does not reveal your specific identity, such as: browser and device information, operating system, the name of the website that referred you to ours.

What We Do with the Information

Personal Data

  • Any Personal Data you provide to us is used for two purposes. The first is to help us improve our site and to deliver the most relevant information to you. The second is to share this information with advertisers, but only in generalized form – never specific information about specific individuals.

Other Data

  • Any non-personally identifiable data ("Other Data") you provide to us is used for purposes of analyzing and interpreting how you interact with our services. We track data such as what pages a visitor has viewed and which links are followed. All of this data is anonymized so that we have no way of determining the exact source of the data.

Information Other Web Sites Collect from You

  • We place links on our site and newsletter to other web sites operated by other parties. We do not control these other web sites or these other web sites’ business practices and this privacy policy does not apply to these other web sites. Consequently, the operators of these other web sites may collect different kinds of information about you, and may use and disclose that information in different ways than we would if it were collected by IH!. We encourage you to review their privacy policies and remind you that we will not be responsible for their actions.

Third Party Subprocessors
