6. Coaching Program
Happify™ offers a coaching program to a limited number of Happify™-Plus members. Eligible members will be able to work with coaches who will provide individualized support and guidance to enhance the Happify™ experience.
Participating members are entitled to one week of private coaching without charge. If the member elects to continue with private coaching after the free trial, the member must select a payment plan, either monthly, quarterly or yearly. The participating member selects a coach from the Happify™ coach directory. The member may use one coach at a time, but may change coaches at any time by selecting a new coach from the coach directory.
The coach will be available 5 days per week, Monday to Friday, and will respond to the user within 24 hours or the next business day if the communication is made on a Friday or before a holiday. The coach may be unavailable for 15 work days per year. If the coach should become permanently unavailable for any reason, the user will select another coach with comparable expertise.
All communications with coaches shall be through electronic means, primarily text messaging through the Happify™ iOS app or the Happify™ website messaging interface, or through posts on the user’s bulletin board.
All messages will be private, confidential and secure. The coach will be permitted to access the member’s user data, including happiness statistics, character strength assessment results, user posts and comments (public and private).
By participating in the coaching program, you are consenting to the disclosure of this information to any coach with whom you are working. The coach is under a duty to maintain the confidentiality of this information and any other personal information you share with the coach, and the coach may not disclose this information to anyone else unless under a legal requirement to do so.
7. Payment Policy
Access to some sections of the Happify™ website or through certain Happify programs is free, but we charge for some of our products and services on a subscription fee basis. This Payment Policy applies to users who have purchased a Happify™ subscription plan to access Happify™ either online or through a mobile application.
a. Overview of Subscription Plans and Payments
We offer several types of individual plans and gift plans. The pricing terms applicable to your account may vary depending on promotions, the type of subscription and the term you select at the time of purchase. Most of our subscription plans renew automatically, as described in more detail below. If you have questions regarding your plan after you sign up, please refer to your Membership page and the confirmation email that will be sent to you after your purchase.
We may from time to time, at our discretion, offer a 30-day trial period for the yearly and two-year subscription plans, and if you sign up under that offer, you will not be billed for the full term until the end of the 30-day trial period. Note that trial periods are not available with the mobile subscription plans. After the end of any trial period, our mobile and online subscription plans are billed in one up-front payment for the entire term of the plan you choose. Thus, if you purchase a monthly plan, you will be charged for the full month’s payment at the beginning of each month; and if you purchase a yearly plan or two-year plan, you will be charged for the entire year or two-year term at the beginning of the term. You will also be able to cancel the yearly or two-year subscription within 30 days after the fee has been charged to your account, in accordance with our cancellation terms. We may use a third-party payment processor to facilitate your payments.
b. Lifetime Subscription Plans
Happify™ offers a Lifetime subscription plan. A Happify™ Lifetime subscription plan allows you to access the Happify™ services available at the time of your purchase for as long as those services are available. You may not assign a Lifetime subscription plan to any other person. Happify™ makes no warranties or representations that any of its services will continue to be available for any period of time, and in purchasing a Lifetime plan, you acknowledge and agree that the Happify™ services could change or terminate at any time in the future.
c. Refund Policy
Happify™ offers a 30-day, 100% money – back guarantee for subscriptions made online at Happify.com for the yearly, two-year, and lifetime plans. The monthly plan is excluded from this offer as are subscriptions for mobile applications. You may receive a refund by contacting our Customer Service team within 30 days of your purchase. Requests made after 30 days will not be eligible. We do not prorate refunds or offer partial refunds except in an instance where we have terminated your membership for any reason other than your breach of our terms. Purchases of subscriptions made through the Apple iTunes Store or our iPhone or iPad applications are final, and are not eligible for a refund. These purchases are subject to Apple’s terms and payment policy, and Apple’s policy may exclude refunds as well.
Purchases of subscriptions made through the Google Play Store or our Android applications are final, and are not eligible for a refund. These purchases are subject to Google Play’s terms and payment policy, and Google Play’s policy may exclude refunds as well.
All Happify™ subscriptions made online at Happify.com, except gift purchases, renew automatically using the payment details on file for your account. If you purchase a subscription with the automatic renewal feature, you agree that we are authorized to use the payment information on file to charge the renewal fee.
The date of automatic renewal of your subscription is shown on your Membership page and in the payment confirmation email sent after your initial purchase. You may cancel the automatic renewal feature at any time before the renewal date by following the instructions on your Membership page or by contacting our Customer Service team. Additionally, for annual and two – year subscriptions, we will refund renewal payments in full if you contact our Customer Service team within 7 days after the renewal payment is made. We do not offer refunds for renewal payments for monthly subscriptions after the monthly subscription fee has been charged to your account.
If you signed up for our services using a promotion discount, fees for your renewal may be higher than your initial rate. Please refer to your Membership page or the confirmation email sent after your initial purchase for details regarding the renewal amount and the date of the next renewal.
e. Price Increases
Our prices may change in the future. We will notify you at the time of any price change, and provide you an opportunity to change or cancel your subscription before applying those changes to your account or changing your payment details in connection with an automatic renewal.
f. Payment Information
By providing payment information to us, you represent that the payment information is accurate, current and in your own name or in the name of an individual who has authorized you to use his or her payment information for your subscription purchase.
If you provide someone else’s payment information, you agree that we may make a refund to that person if he or she so requests and if the account is eligible for a refund under our Payment Policy. This may cause interruption to or termination of your Happify™ Services.

13. Cash Reward Program
Happify™ may from time to time offer cash rewards to select Members for participating in the certain Services and completing activities as outlined on the Member’s Cash Reward page.
A Member may request payment equal to the cash balance of your Member account only as permitted by these Terms and Conditions. Redeeming your cash balance and receipt of any corresponding payment by you is contingent upon:
1. your full compliance with these Terms and Conditions;
2. our receipt of your request to convert the cash balance in your Member account to a payment,
3. your establishing an account with PayPal to receive your payment, and
4. your compliance with the specific rules and terms then in effect for the particular reward program.
A Member may use only one Member account to participate in a cash reward program. Under no circumstances may a Member attempt to establish multiple accounts using multiple computers, names, or any program that masks the Member’s identity. All cash rewards are subject to review. Happify reserves the right to withhold, deny or cancel any cash rewards and/or terminate your Account if Happify, in its sole discretion, deems any cash rewards as fraudulent, abusive, unethical, suspicious or otherwise inconsistent with our cash rewards program terms, this Agreement or any other applicable law or regulation. For avoidance of doubt, faking completion of activities on Happify for cash rewards, will be disqualified from participation in the cash rewards program and their Account will be terminated. Happify decisions are final.
a. Minimum Cash Request Amount NO REDEMPTION OF CASH BALANCE UNTIL YOU HAVE AT LEAST TEN DOLLARS POSTED TO YOUR MEMBER ACCOUNT ($10.00) (the “minimum payment amount”). The terms “cash,” “dollars,” and similar terms are used interchangeably in this document and throughout our Services. Cash posted to your account is unearned and you have no right to redeem the “cash” in your account, and we have no liability or obligation to pay you, unless and until the amount posted to your account meets at least the minimum payment amount and you have otherwise complied with these Terms and Conditions. The “cash” in your account has no cash value and may be cancelled at any time pursuant to these Terms and Conditions.
b. Requesting Payment/Required Account You can request payment of the cash balance in your Member account, subject to these Terms and Conditions, by clicking the “Request Payment” link located on the Cash Reward page and completing all additional steps relating to verification of information and completion of request. As noted above, you may not request payment and the Cash in your account (which has no actual cash value) until at least the Minimum Payment Amount is posted to your account and the conditions herein are otherwise satisfied. A link to request payment will be displayed. Currently, the Minimum Payment Amount required when requesting a payment is $10.00; however, we reserve the right to change this amount. Members may have only one pending payment request at a time. If a Member is eligible for a cash reward program, the Member will be responsible for establishing an account with PayPal. Happify™ will make payments to the PayPal account. Members are responsible for establishing a PayPal account and assuring that it is secure and reliable. Members must establish their own account. Happify™ will not make payments to third party accounts. Members should read and understand PayPal’s terms and rules. The same PayPal account cannot be used to claim a prize for multiple Member Accounts. Happify™ is not responsible for any actions taken by PayPal once payment has been made.
c. Payment Schedule Requests to process payment will be processed within ten (10) business days after the request is received. Happify™ does not permit more than one (1) payment request to be pending at any given time. All payment requests are inspected immediately prior to processing. Payment requests made by inactive Members will not be processed. Accounts found to be in violation of these terms will have accounts closed and any payment request cancelled.
d. Lost Payments Happify™ is not responsible for any lost payments and will not replace payments allegedly converted or improperly accessed by third parties so long as such payment was sent to the PayPal account or email address provided to us when you signed up or provided to us at the time such payment was processed. If a payment that is processed for a Member is rejected due to an error in processing, we will re-send the payment after the Member provides us with accurate PayPal account information. We reserve the right to cancel a payment if rejected more than once or if we have reason to believe any of our terms have been violated. You are responsible for usage of your account, whether or not authorized, including your log in, password and account information. Any violation of these terms or of site usage may result in the closure of your account and loss of eligibility to receive payments.
e. Tax Matters You are responsible for all tax liability arising from your receipt of payments under Happify™’s cash rewards program. We will require you to provide necessary tax information about yourself prior to receiving payment when requesting payment greater than $300 at one time or cumulatively during a calendar year. Happify™ will file a 1099 tax form with respect to any Member who earns $600 or more in one calendar year.
f. Termination Happify™ reserves the right to terminate the cash rewards program at any time, provided that if the Member has met the criteria and earned the cash rewards prior to termination of the program, the Member will be paid notwithstanding the termination of the program. Happify™ makes no guarantees regarding the number or dollar amount of cash rewards it will issue over the life of any cash reward program.
As a Member, you are granted a non – exclusive, non – transferable, revocable and limited license to access and use the Happify™ Offerings and certain third – party Member Content in accordance with the Agreement.
