Last Updated: July 1st, 2020

The Escape Game, LLC (together with all subsidiaries and affiliates, “The Escape Game”, “TEG”, “we” or “us”) provide you one-player and multi-player unique adventure, mystery, party and puzzle games (“Games”) that you can enjoy online, in-store and at-home. This Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) explains how we handle Personal Information provided to us through our Games, websites (and related sub-domains) (“Websites”), third parties, services and products controlled by TEG, and any other online or offline interaction with TEG (together with Games and Websites, “Services”). This Privacy Policy does not apply to websites controlled by The Escape Game that do not link to this Privacy Policy or to third-party websites linked from our websites.

1. Introduction

We strive to respect privacy and we recognize the need for appropriate protection and management of any Personal Information that is shared with us in connection with your use of our Services. As used in this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable person. Examples of Personal Information include, among others, name, email address, phone number, and online identifiers. When we combine Personal Information with other information, we treat the combined information as Personal Information.

On the other hand, if we alter or aggregate Personal Information such that it can no longer be reasonably used to identify you, such information is no longer Personal Information.
You may choose whether or not to provide or disclose Personal Information in connection with your use of our Services. If you choose not to provide any Personal Information we request, you may still visit and use parts of our Services, but may be unable to access or use certain features, options, programs, products, and services offered on our Services.

2. Types of Personal Information We Collect

The types of Personal Information that we may collect for the purposes described in this Privacy Notice are described in this section and include Personal Information that you voluntarily provide to us, Personal Information that we collect automatically when you use Services, and Personal Information that we collect from other sources.

  • Personally identifiable contact information such as your address, email, phone number, or other information you submit when communicating with us, such as the “contact us” sections of our Services.
  • Demographic information such as your name, gender, date of birth, and zip code.

  • Information you publish or submit on publically available websites, blogs, chat rooms, and social media networks.

TEG collects Personal Information that you provide on our Services, for example, through an booking form in order to book a Game, to purchase goods from our Services, to receive marketing products and information, contact TEG customer service, or respond to TEG’s questionnaires or surveys. For example, you may voluntarily submit Personal Information to us in the following instances:

2.1.1 Contact Us. You may voluntarily contact us by submitting Personal Information, such as your first and last name, email and phone number, by calling us, emailing us, reaching us via live chat features or web forms located on our Websites. Personal Information collected by the “Contact Us” feature is used to contact you to respond to your inquiries, and are not used to add you to our newsletter or another unsolicited marketing message (unless you also otherwise provide us with your Personal Information for those purposes).

2.1.2 Payment and Financial Information. Certain components of our Services may require you to provide us with your payment or financial information including your credit card number, expiration date, security code, shipping address and billing address, which constitutes Personal Information. For example, if you purchase gift cards, TEG branded apparel, other products on our The Escape Game online store, or book a Game via our Services, we may collect Payment Information from you to provide you the products or Services you requested. We, with support from our authorized service providers (see the Service Providers in Section 4 of this Privacy Policy below), will only use your payment information to process your payments to provide you with the products or items you ordered through our Services.

2.1.3 Survey Responses. You may voluntarily provide us your Personal Information when responding to surveys about our products and services. Surveys responses are used only to improve our services and products and to help us better understand your usage, preferences and attitudes. This information is used in collective form during our sales and normal business processes.

You may voluntarily submit your Personal Information, including your first name, last name and email address to receive newsletters, publications and other communications regarding our Services and our products, services, and other offerings.

You may choose to stop receiving these by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in Section 7.2 of this Privacy Policy.

2.1.5 Account Registration. Certain portions of our Services may require you to set up a user account.

We may process your username and password (whether alone or in combination with other data to detect fraud) to enable you to log into the Service, and we process information relating to access privileges granted to you to appropriately control your access to password-protected content. We process this Personal Information only as necessary to provide you our Services, as well as to further our legitimate interests of protecting our Services and the content on our Services.

2.1.6 Social Media. Our Services may allow you to share content with third-party social networking sites (e.g. Facebook®, Twitter®). If you choose to do this, your interactions with these third parties are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing them, not by this Privacy Policy.

2.2 Information We Collect Automatically. Certain information on our Services is collected automatically by means of various software tools, as described below. We have a legitimate interest in using such information to assist in log-in, systems administration, and information security and abuse prevention purposes, as well as to track user trends, understand the usage of our Services, analyze the effectiveness of our Services, and improve our Services. Some or all of the automatically collected information may, alone or in combination with other information, constitute Personal Information under certain laws pertaining to data privacy. Some of our service providers may also use cookies or other methods to gather information regarding your use of our Services. These service providers may use these cookies or other tracking methods for their own purposes by evaluating information about your use of our Services in combination with any Personal Information about you that they may have. The use of this information, including any Personal Information they may have about you, by these service providers is subject to the privacy notices or privacy policies of such service providers, if any, rather than this Privacy Policy.

2.2.1 Log Files on Our Website. We may maintain certain log files relating to the access and use of our Website. The information inside the log files may include internet protocol (“IP”) addresses, network request information, standard system logs, crash information and other anonymous identifier technologies (collectively, “Log Data”). Log Data may be used to monitor and analyze use of our , resolve technical issues, perform technical administration, enhance functionality and user-friendliness, and better tailor our Services to your needs.

2.2.2 Data Collected from Cookies, Web Beacons and other Similar Technologies. We use cookies, which are small pieces of data stored in text files, to make interactions with our Services easy, efficient, and meaningful. When you visit our Services, our servers may send a cookie to your computer or other device. Cookies collect and allow us to compile information about the usage of our Services and interaction with emails from us. Standing alone, cookies do not personally identify you; they merely recognize your web browser. Unless you choose to identify yourself to us, either by responding to an email, opening an account, or filling out a web form, you remain anonymous to us. If you identify yourself to us, then these cookies may also collect Personal Information and may allow us to track your usage of our Services, determine your usage preferences, and improve and customize your experience when using our Services. We may use cookies that are session-based or persistent. Session cookies exist only during one session; that is, they are downloaded to your web browser when you visit our Services, but then disappear from your computer/device when you close your browser software or turn off your computer/device. Persistent cookies, on the other hand, are used for multiple visits to our Services and remain on your computer/device after you close your browser or turn off your computer/device. We may use web beacons, either alone or in conjunction with cookies, to compile information about your usage of our Services and interaction with communications from us. Web beacons, also known as pixels, are clear electronic images that can recognize certain types of information on your computer/device, such as cookies, when you view a particular site or email tied to the web beacon. For example, we may place web beacons in marketing emails that notify us when you open an email or click on a link in the email that directs you to our Website. We may also use web beacons to operate and improve our Services and email communications. Unlike cookies, however, web beacons are not stored on your computer/device, so even if you disable cookies on your web browser, web beacons may still load and be used as described above.

2.2.3 Data Collected from Other Analytics Technologies. We may use certain third party analytics services to improve the functionality, features, or delivery of our Services. We may also use these analytics services to record clicks, movements, scrolling activity, as well as any text that you type into our Services. For example, we use Google Analytics on our Websites to track user trends and usage.

By using a browser plugin provided by Google by clicking here, you can opt out of Google Analytics.

2.2.4 Social Media. If you interact with us through social media, your interaction with us may enable the social media platform to collect information about you through cookies they place on your device and other tracking mechanisms. In some cases, the social media platform may recognize you through its cookies even when you do not interact with their application. Additionally, our Services may contain hyperlinks or components which utilize social media functionalities to enable you to easily share information with others on social media. Please visit the social media platform’s privacy policy to better understand their data collection practices and controls they make available to you.

2.2.5 Interest Based Advertising. To help promote user experience, we may engage third parties, including social media platforms, who use cookies, pixel tags, and other storage technologies to collect or receive information from our website and elsewhere on the internet to provide marketing services to us, including targeted advertising.

5. How We Protect the Confidentiality of Personal Information

While no websites can guarantee security, we maintain appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your Personal Information, including assuring that third-party service providers who access or handle Personal Information on our behalf and affiliates maintain such safeguards.

However, there is no guarantee that information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.

In the event that a breach in our security systems occurs and there is a possibility that an unauthorized person acquires your Personal Information, we will notify you of such a breach if we are required by applicable law to do so. However, delays in notification may occur while we take necessary measures to determine the scope of the breach and restore reasonable integrity to the system, as well as for the legitimate needs of law enforcement, if notification would impede a criminal investigation.
