How Information is Collected

Information Provided by You
We do not require you to provide any Personal Information in order to navigate or use our Website.  However, we need to collect Personal Information if you choose to engage in certain of our Services.  

For example, we collect Personal Information from you when you:
Create an account on our Website or our Services.  When you register, we will collect your name, email address, birth date, demographic information, photos, and/or other information you choose to share about yourself.
Interact with our Website or utilize our Services, or contact us through email.  When you utilize our Services, including when you visit our Website, or send us any feedback, questions, comments, suggestions, ideas, or interact with us in any way, you may need to provide us with your name, email address, and other contact information.  

Information Collected Automatically
We may automatically collect the following types of Personal Information as you use our Website or through our Services:

Device Information. Information about the device you are using, such as hardware model, operating system, browser, and IP addresses.



Cookies and Other Tracking Technology

Cookies:
We may also collect Personal Information using cookies. “Cookies” are small pieces of information that are stored by your web browser software on your computer’s or device’s hard drive or temporarily in your computer’s or device’s memory.  You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings of your browser, but some functionality of the Services may be impaired or not function as intended if you choose not to accept cookies.  Each browser is a little different, so look at your Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.  Cookies can be deleted by you, at any time, and will not collect any information when you are not accessing the Services.  By using our Services, you consent to our use of cookies.

Google Analytics:  
We may use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect some information we listed above about your use of the Services. We use the information we get from Google Analytics to improve the Services.  In order to collect this information, Google Analytics may set cookies on your browser or mobile device, or read cookies that are already there.  Google Analytics may also receive information about you from apps you have downloaded that partner with Google. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to the Services to another application which partners with Google is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Notice.  Please review those and see http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/ for information about how Google uses the information provided to Google Analytics and how you can control the information provided to Google.  We may also use similar services instead of or in addition to Google Analytics, including, without limitation, Amplitude, Segment, Drift, and Facebook Tracking Pixels, which operate in similar ways.

iBeacons and Geolocation:
While using certain features of the App, we may now or in the future choose to track the physical location of your mobile device or web browser to send you information that is relevant to you. You will always have control over whether to transmit your physical location, and you can prevent such disclosure by disabling Bluetooth and WiFi, declining the request to share your location, or adjusting your privacy settings in your mobile device operating system (as applicable).  

Unique Identifier:
We may assign you a unique internal identifier to help keep track of your future visits. We use this information to gather aggregate demographic information about our visitors, and we may use it to personalize the information you see on the Services and some of the electronic communications you receive from us.

Other Information:
 When you are using a mobile device, we may also collect and use your Apple Identifier for Advertising (IDFA) and Google Advertising ID (AAID) to recognize your device and support advertising activities on our Services. These number values are not permanently tied to your device and, depending on your operating system, you can reset it through your device settings.

Camera and Photos:
Our features may require us to collect images and other information from your mobile device’s camera and photos. For example, you may not be able to upload photos of Escape Room experiences or from your camera roll unless we can access your camera or photos.

User Account, Password and Security

To use certain features available through the App, we may require that you create a user (“User Account”). We may require the use of encryption technologies provided for your protection. We use reasonable precautions to protect the privacy of your password and User Account information and to ensure that information collected through the Services is not lost, misused or altered inappropriately by administering security measures. You are ultimately responsible for protecting your password and account information from disclosure to third parties, and you are not permitted to circumvent the use of required encryption technologies.

While we may provide certain encryption technologies and use other reasonable precautions to protect your confidential information and provide suitable security, we do not and cannot guarantee or warrant that any information transmitted through the Internet is secure, or that such transmissions are free from delay, interruption, interception or error.

You are ultimately responsible for protecting your password and User Account information from disclosure to third parties, and you are responsible for the content you input using the App. You are not permitted to circumvent the use of required encryption technologies. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your password and/or User Account and/or any other breach of security.

When we provide Personal Information to our affiliates or third party service providers as discussed in this Privacy Notice, we require that these parties agree to process such information in compliance with our Privacy Notice or in a manner that complies with applicable privacy laws. The use of your information by a trusted business partner may be subject to that party’s own privacy notice.



Information from Children

Our Services are meant for adults. We do not collect Personal Information from any person that we know to be under the age of thirteen (13) without permission from a parent or legal guardian. THE SERVICES ARE NOT INTENDED FOR CHILDREN UNDER THIRTEEN (13) WHO ARE UNACCOMPANIED BY THEIR PARENT(S) OR LEGAL GUARDIAN(S).



Links to Other Sites

The Services may now or in the future contain links to other websites, and may contain advertisements of third parties. We may link to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other online platforms.  Morty is not and cannot be responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any of those other websites. Please check with those websites in order to determine their privacy policies and your rights under them.

We may use the services of third party service providers, for example to process payments and other transactions. We use a third party intermediary to manage credit card and debit card processing, and may partner with other service providers if you choose to make purchases using PayPal, Google Wallet or Apple Pay. The intermediary is not permitted to store, retain, or use your billing information except for the sole purpose of payment processing on our behalf and as permitted by their respective privacy policies. By using our Services, you grant us all necessary rights and consents under applicable laws to disclose to our third party service providers – and/or allow those third party service providers to collect, use, retain and disclose to us – any Personal Information for purposes of providing services to you, including data that we may collect directly from you using cookies or other similar means. Your use of the third party services is subject to each such service’s respective terms of use and privacy policy, and we have no control over any such third party services. We may, at any time and in our sole discretion, terminate access of certain third party services and may add additional or new third party services.



International Users

The Services are intended for individuals located in the United States, and your use of our products and services are governed by United States law. We are not targeting or marketing to international users. The data protection and other laws of the United States might not be as comprehensive as those in your country. By using the Services, you consent to your information being transferred to our facilities and to the facilities of those third parties with whom we share it as described in this Privacy Notice.



Choices with Your Personal Information

Whether you submit any Personal Information to us is entirely up to you. You are under no obligation to provide any Personal Information to us. However, this information is essential for the provision and quality of some of the services that we offer to you, so we cannot provide you with certain services or provide you with access to certain features if you choose to withhold requested information, for example providing features that require your payment information.

You may choose to prevent us from disclosing or using your Personal Information under certain circumstances (“opt out”). You may opt out of any disclosure or use of your Personal Information for purposes that are incompatible with the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected or for which you subsequently gave authorization by notifying us by one of the methods at the end of this Privacy Notice, or by following the procedures set forth in an electronic communication from us, if applicable. Furthermore, even where your Personal Information is to be disclosed and used in accordance with the stated purposes in this Privacy Notice, you may elect to opt out of such disclosure to and use by a third party that is not acting as our agent. There are some uses from which you cannot opt out, such as to provide products, features or services that you have requested from us.



Access and Correction

Please contact us in the manner specified at the end of this Privacy Notice to access your Personal Information in our possession and correct inaccuracies of that information in our records. We ask individuals to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed and amended before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests in limited circumstances, as permitted by applicable laws, rules and regulations.



How Long We Keep Your Information

We will retain your information until you delete your account. We retain your information for longer periods for specific purposes to the extent that we are obliged to do so in accordance with applicable laws and regulations and/or as necessary to protect our legal rights or for certain business requirements.  For example, we may retain your information, as follows:
● Aggregated Usage Information – We will maintain anonymized usage data in an aggregated form in perpetuity, so that we can analyze our own usage information over time.  This will not include any Personal Information.
● Security, fraud & abuse prevention – i.e. to protect you, other people, and us from fraud, abuse, and unauthorized access.
● Financial record-keeping – when you make a payment to us we are often required to retain this information for a longer period of time for purposes of accounting, dispute resolution and compliance with tax, anti-money laundering, and other financial regulations.
● Complying with legal or regulatory requirements – to meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request, as required to enforce our Terms of Use, including investigation of potential violations.
● Direct communications with us - if you have directly communicated with us, through a customer support channel, feedback form, or a bug report, we may retain reasonable records of those communications. Even if you delete your account, keep in mind that the deletion by our third party providers may not be immediate and that the deleted information may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time.
