This Privacy Notice provides additional information for natural persons whose personal data has been published within the ‘Places’ section of happiness.com. 

For the remainder of the Privacy information, please visit the Product’s general Privacy Policy on https://www.happiness.com/policy/popup/true/

For natural persons in the UK: The UK has transferred key principles, rights and terms from GDPR into the UK GDPR. Therefore, when we say GDPR, this also covers its equivalent from UK GDPR simultaneously.

1. Details of the Controller

The data controller is Ideawise Limited, Room 604, Alliance Building, 133 Connaught Road, Central Hong Kong, Hong Kong. Its representative is SmH ServiceCenter.de GmbH, Metzer Str. 13, 13595 Berlin/Germany. Please direct any general support requests to: support@happiness.com). 

Ideawise Limited is also meant when the terms ‘we’ or ‘us’ are used below. You can contact our data protection officer at: dataprotection@happiness.com.

2. Information on the Types of Data Processed and Their Origin

We process personal data from various sources. The data within the ‘Places’ section is derived from publicly available information from Google LLC / Google Business / Google Maps. These typically include name, service offered, address, opening hours, contact details, photos. 

3. Processing Purposes & Legal Bases

We process your data in your interest, in order to offer additional reach for your business and in the interest of our platform users to point them to appropriate resources.

In doing so, we rely on the legal basis of ‘legitimate interests’ (Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR).

These are, for example, the redistribution of otherwise already publicly accessible information and the provision of information services towards users of our platform. 

4. Data Transfers

We treat your personal data with care and confidentiality and will only pass them on to third parties and other recipients to the extent described below and not beyond.

a. To Group Companies:

We transfer data to affiliated companies which form part of the same group of companies as us (e.g. SmH ServiceCenter.de GmbH, or Playamedia S.L., both service companies associated with us) within the framework of strict protection requirements and only when this is necessary. This is the case, for example, when employees of our other entities handle your data in the collection process. 

b. Third parties and Other Recipients (Both When Using Web and App):

In addition, we transfer data to external service providers who enable us to provide our Services. These include hosting providers and content delivery service providers. We require each of these service providers to comply with strict rules about the security of your personal information when processing personal data on our behalf. 


We use Google Analytics to analyse the behavior of users of our Services. We use Google Maps to show members in the regional search on a map. We do not use the actual location of the user, but a location stored by us based on the zip code provided by the user. Information on opt-out options 

5. Transfer to Countries Outside the EU or the EEA

We transfer personal data to countries outside the EEA (so-called "third countries") only after taking appropriate measures to protect it. Nevertheless, third countries do not offer a level of data protection identical to that in the EU. 

We will only transfer your personal data if 

  • The Commission has adopted a so-called adequacy decision for the third country or the recipient in this third country;

  • Guarantees are provided by the recipient in accordance with Article 46 of the GDPR for the protection of personal data (including any additional measures required);

  • You have expressly consented to the transfer, after we have informed you of the risks, in accordance with Article 49 (1) lit. a) of the GDPR; or

  • The transfer is necessary for the performance of contractual obligations between you and us. 

Guarantees according to Article 46 of the GDPR can be so-called standard contractual clauses as well as binding corporate rules with which the recipients assure to adequately protect the data and thus ensure a level of protection comparable to the GDPR. We will be happy to provide you with subsequent information upon request.

6. How Long will my Data be Stored?

We only store data as long as necessary to reach the purpose we process it for. Once the data are no longer necessary they will be deleted regularly, unless the processing is necessary for the fulfilment of legal obligations (e.g. tax or commercial law), the protection of legitimate interests or for the preservation of evidence within the framework of statutes of limitations. 

7. Your Rights under GDPR

You can assert the following rights:

  • Your right to access and obtain a copy of your personal data according to article 15 GDPR, in particular, you can request information about the processing purposes, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the retention period, the existence of a right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or objection, the existence of a right of complaint, the origin of your data if it has not been collected by us, as well as the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, and, if applicable, meaningful information about its details.  

  • Your right to rectification according to article 16 GDPR, e.g. if your data is incomplete or incorrect, you can request us to correct it.   

  • Your right to erasure according to article 17 GDPR, if the processing is not (any longer) necessary for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.  

  • Your right to restriction of processing according to Article 18 GDPR. You may request that your data be blocked, e.g. because you believe the data is inaccurate or the processing is unlawful, but you object to its erasure because you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or you have objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21 of the GDPR.  As well as 

  • Your right to data portability according to Article 20 GDPR. You may request that we hand over data you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format or transfer it to another controller.

8. Information About Your Right of Objection 

a. Right of Objection in Individual Cases 

In addition to the rights already mentioned, you have the right, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of personal data relating to you on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR (‘legitimate interests’). If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. 

b. Right to Object to the Processing of Data for Advertising Purposes

You also have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data.

9. Information on Your Legal Rights Under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)

Please note: We do not sell personal data. This means we will not transmit data to any third party except for the recipients mentioned in this Privacy Statement, for the stated purposes. The relevant recipients have agreed to contractual limitations as to their retention, use, and disclosure of personal data. 

California law grants state residents certain rights, including the rights to access specific types of personal data, to learn how we process personal data, to request deletion of personal data, and not to be denied goods or services for exercising these rights. If you are a California resident under the age of 18 and have registered for an account with us, you may also ask us to remove content or information that you have posted to our Services. For information on how to exercise your rights under the CCPA, please refer to Section 7 above.

As a data controller under GDPR and a business regulated under CCPA, we ensure that your rights are respected in all jurisdictions. If you are an authorized agent wishing to exercise rights on behalf of a California resident, please contact our privacy team and provide us with a copy of the consumer’s written authorization designating you as their agent.  

We may need to verify your identity and place of residence before completing your CCPA rights request.
