We use various technologies to collect and store information, including cookies, pixel tags, local storage, such as browser web storage or application data caches, databases, and server logs.

Why Dathappy Collects Information
Dathappy uses the information we collect for the following purposes:
Provide Our Services
We use your information to deliver our Services, like administering gigs you enter or hosting datasets you upload or access.
Maintain & Improve Our Services
Develop New Services
We use the information we collect in existing Services to help us create new features and functionality.
Provide Personalized Services
We use the information we collect to customize our Services for you, including remembering your information so that you will not have to log-in again the next time you visit the Services if you haven’t signed out. We also use data to provide customized third party content and information and to track your status in any gigs or other activities. In addition, we may use the information we collect to provide personalized and relevant advertising, for example showing you gigs in your location based on your IP address.
We use data for analytics and measurement to understand how our Services are used. For example, we analyze data about your visits to our sites to do things like optimize product design, monitor and analyze the operation and effectiveness of the Services and related activities, and monitor aggregate site usage metrics such as total number of visitors and pages viewed. We use a variety of tools to do this, including Google Analytics. Google Analytics relies on first-party cookies, which means the cookies are set by Dathappy. You can opt-out from Google Analytics by clicking here.
Communicate with You
We use the information we collect, like your email address, to interact with you directly. For example, we may send you a notification if we detect suspicious activity on your account, or we may let you know about upcoming changes or improvements to our Services. We will also use your email address to contact you with respect to new or ongoing gigs; for administrative and customer service purposes; to address intellectual property infringement, rights of privacy, or defamation issues; or regarding things you post on the Services. And if you contact Dathappy, we’ll keep a record of your request to help solve any issues you might be facing.
Dathappy also uses your email address or other personal information to send you messages about the Services and communications from other Members. We may also send you messages related to the Services and the activities of third parties we work with. These messages may be targeted at you based on your activities on our Services, for example, your interaction with a particular dataset or your entry into a specific gig. You will have the ability to opt-out of receiving any such communications, through links provided in the messages.
Managing, Reviewing, and Updating Your Information
When you’re signed in to your Dathappy account, you can always review and update information by visiting your account profile.
Removing & Deleting Your Information
You may update, correct, or delete your profile information and preferences at any time by accessing your account settings page or editing your Dathappy account profile through the Services.
You can also delete your discussion posts. If desired, you can delete your entire Dathappy account by choosing that option in your account settings page.
Please note that while your deletions are reflected promptly in active member databases, in some cases, we retain data for limited periods when it needs to be kept for legitimate business or legal purposes. See “Data Retention” below for more information.
There are other ways to control the information Dathappy collects whether or not you’re signed in to a Dathappy account, including configuring your browser to indicate when Dathappy has set a cookie in your browser. You can also configure your browser to block all cookies from a specific domain or all domains. But remember that our Services rely on cookies to function properly.
Information Retained Until You Remove It
As we describe above, you can delete your entire Dathappy account or selectively delete your discussion posts, uploaded datasets by using the available tools in our Services. In some cases, rather than provide a way to delete data, we store it for a predetermined period of time. For each type of data, we set retention timeframes based on the reason for its collection.
When Dathappy Shares Your Information
We are not in the business of selling your information. We do, however, disclose your personal information in connection with developing and maintaining the Services and operating Competitions and Gigs. We share your personal information in the following cases:
With your consent
We’ll share personal information outside of Dathappy when we have your consent. For example, if you give us permission to share your information with a third party who may be a prospective employer.
To operate competitions and gigs
Dathappy may disclose your personal information to the hosts of competitions and gigs to enable your participation in the competitions or gigs and our operation of the competitions and gigs. The terms of that disclosure are covered in the contract between you and the competition/gig sponsor.
For legal reasons
We will share personal information outside of Dathappy if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation, or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
Meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or enforceable governmental request.
Detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, abuse, security, or technical issues.
Protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Dathappy or our affiliates, our users, or the public as required or permitted by law.
Protect the security or integrity of the Services and to protect or enforce third party rights.
We may share non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners — like publishers, advertisers, developers, or rights holders. For example, we share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our Services.
Our Commitment to Data Security
Dathappy uses a variety of physical, managerial, and technical safeguards designed to improve the security of our systems and your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Dathappy, nor can we guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. You transfer your information to Dathappy at your own risk.
If Dathappy learns of a security breach, we will notify you in accordance with applicable law.
Our Commitment to Children’s Privacy
Protecting the privacy of children is especially important. For that reason, Dathappy does not knowingly collect or maintain personal information from persons under 18 years old, and no part of the Services is directed to persons under 18. IF YOU ARE UNDER 18 YEARS OF AGE, PLEASE DO NOT USE OR ACCESS THE SERVICES AT ANY TIME OR IN ANY MANNER.
If Dathappy learns that personal information of children under 18 years old has been collected on the Services without verifiable parental consent, then Dathappy will take the appropriate steps to delete this information. If you are a parent or guardian and discover that your child under the age of 18 has obtained a user account on the Services, then you may alert Dathappy and request that Dathappy delete that child’s personal information from its systems.
Compliance & Cooperation with Regulators
Your information may be processed on servers located outside of the country where you live. Data protection laws vary among countries, with some providing more protection than others. Regardless of where your information is processed, we apply the same protections described in this policy. When we receive formal written complaints, we respond by contacting the person who made the complaint. We work with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of your data that we cannot resolve with you directly.
If the European Union (EU) data protection law applies to the processing of your information, you can exercise your right to request access to, update, remove, and restrict the processing of your information. You also have the right to object to the processing of your information or export your information to another service. Please contact us at to exercise these rights.
We process your information for the purposes described in this policy, based on the following legal grounds:
With your consent
We ask for your agreement to process your information for specific purposes and you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us.
