But what is HAPPY?

Making you HAPPY is not a marketing gimmick, it's a passion. And we know that when you are HAPPY, we are HAPPY, so it works both ways! Of course, we are only human, and like you we might have an 'off day', make a bad judgement, or make a mistake. What's important though, is that both you and we know that all we strive to do is our very best, and when we do get it wrong, we promise to acknowledge our error and to put it right, fast.
