yet a registered FarmHappy member (a “non-member”) in connection with certain FarmHappy
features, such as when a non-member subscribes to a FarmHappy newsletter, a
member invites a non-member to visit the Site, or a non-member engages in a guest transaction. Non-member
information is used only for the purposes disclosed when it was submitted to FarmHappy.
A non-member can contact us
if they do not want FarmHappy to retain their information.

(such as newsletters), and you can control which optional messages you choose
to receive by changing your settings in your account.
If you have chosen to connect your account to an external, third-party application, such as Facebook,

FarmHappy limits access to your personal information by FarmHappy personnel to those whom we believe

order to do their jobs.
As part of the buying and selling process, FarmHappy will facilitate the sharing of information
between the two members involved in the transaction, such as the other FarmHappy

way. We expect you to respect the privacy of the member whose information you
received. As described in FarmHappy's Terms
of Use, you have a limited license to use that information only for FarmHappy-related
communications or for FarmHappy-facilitated transactions. FarmHappy has not
granted you a license to use the information for unsolicited commercial
messages or unauthorized transactions. Without express consent from that
person, you must not add any FarmHappy member to your email or physical mailing
list or misuse any member’s personal information. Remember that you need to
