Who we are

This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) lists, and generally describes the policies and procedures related to, information and data Happy Acres Children’s Home collects from visitors to HachFamily.com (our “Website”).

This Policy relates only to Hach Family and Residential Forms, not to any third party site or service linked to our Website or recommended or referred by us or through our Website.

Personal Information We Collect

Any personal information you choose to input into this website is stored. Our Website will not ask you nor will it collect payment information, you will be directed to a payment contractor for any payments.

We, and/or our contractors, also collect data on how our Website is used: for example, number of page visits and duration, type of browser. This “usage data” includes what some jurisdictions consider personal information, like visitors’ devices’ Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses (which include general location).

Some of this usage data may come through “cookies” and other technologies.  A cookie is a string of data our system sends your device and then uses to identify that device when used to return to our Website. You can set up most browsers to refuse all cookies, or to notify you of any cookies you receive. (Do be aware that if you don’t accept certain cookies, you won’t be able to make as efficient use of many websites, including ours).

Our Website is not meant to collect information from anyone under age 18. If you know of children’s information collected through our Website, please contact us at contact@hachfamily.com.

Our Use of Personal Information

We use your personal information to reply to messages you send us via e-mail or through our contact forms, and to otherwise correspond with you. Also, if you send us a contact form or subscribe to our blog, we’ll put your name and e-mail address and any other contact information you provide on our notices list(s), so that you get e-mail or other notice of future blog posts and announcements from us. (You can unsubscribe when you receive one of those announcements, or at any time by contacting us at the e-mail address below.)

We use cookies and other technologies – including the personal information they collect – so that, for example, our Website can remember your device(s) and give you the information you’re most likely to need. We also use information gained through cookies and other technologies to compile statistical information about use of our Website, such as the pages users visit most often, and for Website security. Finally, we use personal information collected by cookies and other technologies on our Website for tracking, as explained below.

Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a setting in a web browser (but for which there is no universal standard) that expresses a preference that websites not track your on-line behavior elsewhere. Our Website does not respond to DNT signals or turn off tracking.

We will never sell your personal information to advertisers. We reserve the right to utilize your de-identified data for performance and statistical analysis which may be shared publicly. de-identified data is defined as; information that identifies or could reasonably be used to identify an individual person, household, or Customer.

Contractor and Other Third Party Access to Personal Information

We may disclose personal information to attorneys or law enforcement authorities to address contract violations or illegal behavior, or to enforce our rights. We disclose information demanded in a court order, subpoena, or otherwise required by law, or to prevent harm to persons or property. We may share personal information in connection with a corporate transaction, like a merger or sale of our company, the sale of most of our assets, or a bankruptcy.

Certain contractors can access data we collect, including personal information. Notably:

Matomo Analytics

Our website utilized Matomo Analytics to provide statistical reports on site visitors and usage statistics. Matomo does not use cookies.


We utilize WordPress to serve information on this Website, note this website is not hosted on WordPress-controlled servers.

Protection of Personal Information

We do not directly store the personal information that may be included in usage data collected by cookies and other mechanisms at our site. The data we don’t store ourselves is collected and stored by our contractors, including WordPress and Matomo, under their policies and procedures.

We do store information you send us via e-mail and through contact forms (such as your contact information). We keep that information on password-protected computers and share it only with contractors who have agreed to use it only as we instruct.

Unfortunately, neither we nor any website can guarantee the security of personal information or other data, including during transmission and storage. Use of the Website is at your own risk.

Accessing and Correcting Your Personal Information

You can access and change contact information we store about you by e-mailing us at contact@hachfamily.com.

Special Notices Related to Privacy Laws

We provide this Policy in the interest of transparency to our Website users. Doing so is not intended to suggest, and does not mean that, legal responsibilities apply that would not otherwise. Legal protections for personal information (and even what information is governed) are not the same in all jurisdictions, inside and outside and among the United States, and are rapidly evolving and complex. Simply put, not all laws, including collection notice requirements, apply to all entities, individuals, or information, in all locations, or in all circumstances. 

Amendment of this Privacy Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy at any time by posting a new version on this page or on a successor page.
