A “cookie” is a small text file that is sent from the server of HappyMetrix and is stored on the user’s computer’s hard drive. The information registered by these cookies may only be read by HappyMetrix and only during the visit of the Website. These cookies allow an easier and more comfortable consultation of the Website. The User can refuse the use of these cookies by modifying the navigation configuration settings.

2.3 Personal data communicated by commercial partners

In this case, the commercial partners guarantee to HappyMetrix that they have actually received the authorization to communicate these personal data.

2.4 Personal data communicated by third party API services

In order to aggregate data from the User’s third party services accounts (ex. Facebook, Google Analytics, Twitter, etc) after downloading the HappyMetrix Software, the User needs also to grant access to his third party service account. To do so, the User needs to fill out his third party service account login or e-mail and the accompanying password upon activation of the HappyMetrix software. The data thus provided is sent directly to third party services servers. HappyMetrix does not have access to these data and does not process nor save these data.
Hence, we are not in possession of the login data that are communicated by the Users of those third party services.

3. Purposes of the processing of data

3.1 General purposes

The personal data are collected to:

  • Allow the user to use his personal copy of the HappyMetrix software.
  • Administer the technical aspect of the HappyMetrix software.
  • Give information, make offers and supply the HappyMetrix clients with information related to future offers and products that might interest him.
  • After having checked the anonymous characteristic of the data, compile statistics.

3.2 Direct marketing and communication to third parties

The User’s personal data stays strictly confidential and may in no way be communicated to third parties, unless HappyMetrix has got expressly and beforehand the permission of the User (“opt-in”) by his Registration.
The permission in question may be withheld at any time, without reason and free of charges by sending an email to info@happymetrix.com.

3.3 Communication to third party API’s

We wish expressly insist on the fact that we do not send the User’s login data, as collected in accordance with the present Privacy Policy, to third party services without having got expressly and beforehand the permission of the User (“opt-in”). Hence, only HappyMetrix collects and processes the User’s personal data in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
Third party services do not have any right of access to this personal data except if the User has expressly given his permission therefore on beforehand.

The User is entirely free to communicate or not his personal data to HappyMetrix. He must however be aware that some Services may be refused and that the HappyMetrix software cannot be downloaded and used if he does not complete the Registration Form with his personal data and that he is the only liable for the correctness of the data that he communicates to HappyMetrix.

6. Right to object

The User may exercise his right to object within the framework of the processing of his personal data if he considers that serious and legitimate reasons exist to do so, by sending an email to the address info@happymetrix.com.

HappyMetrix has developed technically and organizationally appropriate security rules in order to avoid the destruction, loss, forgery, modification, forbidden access and mistaken communication to third parties as well as every other unauthorized processing of the collected personal data.
HappyMetrix may never be held liable for any direct or indirect damage that results from a wrong or illegal handling of the personal data by a third party.
Hence it is essential that the User respects the security prescripts, among others by not giving access to his user’s name or license key to third parties. Only the User is indeed liable for the way the HappyMetrix software is used under his identification data.
