It's about getting the deals and information you want direct to your mobile!
Most people don't hate all advertising, just the stuff that's irrelevant to them. That's where we come in. HooHaa aims to get you the deals, offers, exclusives and information that you actually want to know about. Imagine if you didn't know about that half price sale at your favourite clothing store, or even at one you've never been to before. Or what about if you missed the start of that cool new TV series you've been meaning to watch. That would be awful. That's where HooHaa helps.
Yep. That's right. Never forget or miss out again!
After talking to a lot of people, we believe that the best place to get these offers to you is on your mobile. Then you'll always have the offer on your mobile and you'll never miss out on that special offer again. They're not always txt messages either. Sometimes they'll be pictures or videos, or even an entry form to win stuff no-one else can. We want to make your life easier. Let us know if you have any ideas how we can improve too.
No. We only send stuff to you when you have given us your express permission.
We've even adopted a double opt-in mechanism, which is more than the law requires. In fact, we've been using this method since before the law was introduced. And we'll continue to find ways to improve our methods to ensure your privacy and always try to be the leaders in protecting your privacy and ensuring you don't get spammed on your mobile.
We aim to be a responsible advertising medium, but if you feel we've breached the Unsolicited Electronic Messages Act 2007, and you would like to lay a complaint, you can do so at the Ministry of Internal Affair's anti-spam complaints website.
We protect your privacy and limit the number of txts we send you.
It wouldn't be cool if we started sending you hundreds of txts a day just because you gave us permission. That'd still be spam and an abuse of your trust. So we limit the numbers we'll send you. No more than 4 in one day. That's a promise!
Also we'll never sell or give your personal details to anyone. Unless you ask us to of course. No good getting those cheap concert tickets, or that exclusive pre-launch game special, if they can't send them to you! But you're always in control. Always!
We're so glad you asked. For each HooHaa you receive, you'll get 15 moolah points!
Think of it as a way of saying thank you. Advertisers want to talk to you, but we don't read newspapers or watch TV like we used to. So we thought it would be great if they could not only offer you a great deal, or let you know when something cool is happening, but also say 'thanks for your time'.
Well that's up to you. Mobile phone credits, charity donations, or cash. You choose.
You can choose where your moolah goes. Put it on your mobile phone account, top up your prepaid, put it in your PAGO wallet, or donate it to one of our supported charities.
You can unsubscribe anytime. No questions asked.
It's easy to unsubscribe.
- Txt 'STOP' to 226 (Txt costs 20c)
- Unsubscribe your phone in your online HooHaa account
- Phone 0800 HOOHAA (0800 466422) and request your phone be unsubscribed
We'll miss you though and would love for you to tell us why you're unsubscribing.
Abosolutely not! We have children too!
All our messages are screened before sending by our highly trained staff members for any obscenity, indecency and profanity. Don't worry, we have kids too and we'd never send any HooHaa messages containing anything we wouldn't want them to see.
We ask you. And the more you tell us, the better we'll get.
When you first signup, we'll ask you some questions about things you like, don't like, things you usually do, how old you are and other questions like that. It's all in an effort to get to know you as best we can. The more we can understand you, the more on target we can be. So be honest!
Of course, we understand that things change, so feel free to come back and login to your HooHaa account and update your profile.
Well, we try, but we can't always be perfect. So again, let us know!
Whenever you receive a HooHaa, you can let our advertisers know what you think. Just log in to your account, click on the message you received and tell us what you think.
If you rate it as being irrelevant to you, then we'll make sure you don't get messages like that again. But you need to tell us why it's not relevant. Was it the offer, the product, the advertiser, or you just couldn't understand what was being offered. By telling us, you stay in control of what you're getting.
Of course, if it's something you're really interested in, let us know and we'll try to get you more HooHaa's like that one.
Excellent. We'd love to answer your questions.
Just send us an email or give us a call on 0800 HOOHAA (0800 466 422) and we'll do our best to answer any or all of your questions. Apart from relationship advice we'd love to help you with, but it's not really our thing.
