Read and write happeninz from anywhere in the world! Set your favorite locations.
Happeninz instantly connects people everywhere based on location. Any registered user can send a post, which is a message of 200 characters or less that is public by default, tied to a location, and can include other content like photos and links to other websites.
Information Collection and Use
Information Collected Upon Registration: When you create or reconfigure a Happeninz account, you provide some personal information, such as your name, username, password, and email address. Some of this information, for example, your name and username, is listed publicly on our Services, including on your profile page and in search results. Some Services, such as search, public user profiles and viewing lists, do not require registration.
Additional Information: You may provide us with profile information to make public, such as a short biography, your location, your website, or a picture. We may use your contact information to send you information about our Services or to market to you. You may use help[at]Happeninz[dot]com to unsubscribe your account. We may use your contact information to help others find your Happeninz account, including through third-party services and client applications. If you email us, we may keep your message, email address and contact information to respond to your request. Providing the additional information described in this section is entirely optional.
Post's and other Public Information: Our Services are primarily designed to help you share information with the world. Most of the information you provide us is information you are asking us to make public. This includes not only the messages you post and the metadata provided with post's, such as when you posted, but also the locations you mark as favorites, and many other bits of information that result from your use of the Services. Our default is almost always to make the information you provide public for as long as you do not delete it from Happeninz, but we generally give you settings to make the information more private if you want. Your public information is broadly and instantly disseminated. For instance, your public user profile information and public Post's may be searchable by search engines and are immediately delivered through our API to a wide range of users and services. When you share information or content like photos and links via the Services, you should think carefully about what you are making public.
Location Information: You may choose to send to an exact location in your Post's and publish your hometown in your Happeninz profile. You may also tell us your location when you set your location on Happeninz.com or enable your computer or mobile device to send us location information. You can set your post location preferences in your account settings and through your Favorites. We may use and store information about your post locations or favorite locations to provide features of our Services, such as improving and customizing the Services, for example, with more relevant content like local trends, stories and ads.
Log Data: Our servers automatically record information ("Log Data") created by your use of the Services. Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, the referring web page, pages visited, location, your mobile carrier, device and application IDs, search terms, and cookie information. We receive Log Data when you interact with our Services, for example, when you visit our websites, sign into our Services, interact with our email notifications, use your Happeninz account to authenticate to a third-party website or application, or visit a third-party website that includes a Happeninz button or widget. Happeninz uses Log Data to provide our Services and to measure, customize, and improve them. If not already done earlier, for example, as provided below for Widget Data, we will either delete Log Data or remove any common account identifiers, such as your username, full IP address, or email address, after 18 months.
Third-Parties: Happeninz uses a variety of third-party services to help provide our Services, such as hosting our various blogs and wikis, and to help us understand the use of our Services, such as Google Analytics. These third-party service providers may collect information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, such as cookies or your IP address. Third-party ad partners may share information with us, like a browser cookie ID or cryptographic hash of a common account identifier (such as an email address), to help us measure ad quality and tailor ads. For example, this allows us to display ads about things you may have already shown interest in.

When your account is deactivated, it is not viewable on Happeninz.com. For up to 30 days after deactivation it is still possible to restore your account if it was accidentally or wrongfully deactivated.
