Welcome to Hazeli Policies
There are many different ways you can use our services – to search for and share information, to communicate with other people or to create new content. When you share information with us, for example by creating a Hazeli Account we can make those services even better – to show you more relevant search results and ads, to help you connect with people or to make sharing with others quicker and easier. As you use our services, we want you to be clear how we’re using information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy.
- What information we collect and why we collect it.
- How we use that information.
- The choices we offer, including how to access and update information.
Information we collect
We collect information to provide better services to all of our users. We collect information in the following ways:
- Information you give us. For example, many of our services require you to sign up for a Hazeli Account. When you do, we’ll ask for personal information, like your name, email address, telephone number or credit card to store with your account.
Information we get from your use of our services. We collect information about the services that you use and how you use them, like when you watch a video, complete a quiz, or view our content. This information includes:
- Log information
When you use our services or view content provided by Hazeli, we automatically collect and store certain information in server logs. This includes:
- details of how you used our service, such as your search queries.
- device event information such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral URL.
- cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your Hazeli Account.
Information we collect when you are signed in to Hazeli, in addition to information we obtain about you from partners, may be associated with your Hazeli Account. When information is associated with your Hazeli Account, we treat it as personal information.
How we use information we collect
We use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain, protect, and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect Hazeli and our users. We also use this information to offer you tailored content – like giving you more relevant ads.
We may use the name you provide for your Hazeli Profile across all of the services we offer that require a Hazeli Account.
If you have a Hazeli Account, we may display your Profile name, Profile photo, and actions you take on Hazeli or on third-party applications connected to your Hazeli Account (such as reviews you write and comments you post) in our services, including displaying in ads and other commercial contexts. We will respect the choices you make to limit sharing or visibility settings in your Hazeli Account.
When you contact Hazeli, we keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements.
We may use information collected from cookies and other technologies, to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services.
Our automated systems analyze your content (including emails) to provide you personally relevant product features, such as customized search results, tailored advertising, and spam and malware detection.
We may combine personal information from one service with information, including personal information, from other Hazeli services – for example to make it easier to connect with other people using our Services.
Information you share
Many of our services let you share information with others. Remember that when you share information publicly, it may be indexable by search engines.
Accessing and updating your personal information
Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes.
Information we share
We do not share personal information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of Hazeli unless one of the following circumstances applies:
- With your consent
We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Hazeli when we have your consent to do so. We require opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information.
- For external processing
- For legal reasons
We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Hazeli 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.
- enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations.
- detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
- protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Hazeli, our users or the public as required or permitted by law.
We may share non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners – like publishers, advertisers or connected sites. For example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our services.
We work hard to protect Hazeli and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. In particular:
- We encrypt many of our services using SSL.
- We review our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems.
- We restrict access to personal information to Hazeli employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for us, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.

You must follow any policies made available to you within the Services.

Our Services display some content that is not Hazeli’s. This content is the sole responsibility of the entity or person that makes it available. We may review content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our policies, and we may remove or refuse to display content that we reasonably believe violates our policies or the law.

In connection with your use of the Services, we may send you service announcements, administrative messages, and other information. You may opt out of some of those communications.
Some of our Services are available on mobile devices. Do not use such Services in a way that distracts you and prevents you from obeying traffic or safety laws.

You may create your own Hazeli Account, or your Hazeli Account may be assigned to you by an administrator, such as your employer or educational institution.

About these Terms
We may modify these terms or any additional terms that apply to a Service to, for example, reflect changes to the law or changes to our Services. You should look at the terms regularly. We’ll post notice of modifications to these terms on this page. We’ll post notice of modified additional terms in the applicable Service. Changes will not apply retroactively and will become effective no sooner than fourteen days after they are posted. However, changes addressing new functions for a Service or changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately. If you do not agree to the modified terms for a Service, you should discontinue your use of that Service.
If there is a conflict between these terms and the additional terms, the additional terms will control for that conflict.
These terms control the relationship between Hazeli and you. They do not create any third party beneficiary rights.
If you do not comply with these terms, and we don’t take action right away, this doesn’t mean that we are giving up any rights that we may have (such as taking action in the future).
If it turns out that a particular term is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms.
The laws of Massachusetts, U.S.A., will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to these terms or the Services.
