Personal Information includes any information that directly, indirectly, or in connection with other information — including a personal identification number — allows for the identification or identifiability of a natural person. Personal Information does not include data that has been aggregated or made anonymous such that you can no longer be identified using means reasonably available to us. We may receive Personal Information when you register with the Retreat Platform or send a message on the Retreat Platform.

We have a legitimate interest for using your info in these ways. It’s fundamental to what we do at Retreat and necessary in order to make the Retreat Platform relevant and personalized to you. We may use the information we collect from your browser or device to:

This Retreat Platform is cookie-enabled to give you a more customized user experience. A cookie is a small piece of information that a website can store on a computer and later use to recognize a user. A purpose of cookies is to enhance your ability to receive the information you want. We use two types of cookies to enhance the experience of users: session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie expires when a user closes the browser in which this website was viewed. A persistent cookie expires on a pre-determined date. Users can personalize their browser settings to reject cookies, although certain features of the Retreat Platform may not function as intended.
Web Beacons/Pixel Tags
Web beacons or pixel tags and similar technologies are small bits of code, which are embedded in web pages, ads, and e-mail, that communicate with third parties. Pixel tags can collect information such as the Internet Protocol (“IP”) address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the web beacon appears; the URL of the page on which the pixel tag appears; the time the page containing the pixel tag was viewed; the type of browser that fetched the pixel tag; and the identification number of any cookie on the computer previously placed by that server. We may use web beacons, for example, to count the number of users who have visited a particular web page, to deliver or communicate with cookies, and to understand usage patterns. We also may include web beacons in e-mails to understand whether messages have been opened, acted on, or forwarded.
There are other local storage and Internet technologies, such as Local Shared Objects (also referred to as “Flash cookies”) and HTML5 local storage that operate similarly to the cookies discussed above in that they are stored on your device and can be used to store certain information about your activities and preferences across different services and sessions.
Please note that these technologies are distinct from cookies, and you may not be able to control them using standard browser tools and settings. For information about disabling or deleting information contained in Flash cookies, you may visit Adobe’s website.

Children under age 13 should not use the Retreat Platform at all. If a child under age 13 submits information through any part of the Retreat Platform, and we become aware that the person submitting the information is under age 13, we will attempt to delete the information as soon as reasonably possible. You must be at least 18 years old to download and/or use the Retreat Platform, or if you are not at least 18, you must be at least 13 years old and may download and/or use the Retreat Platform only in conjunction with, and under the supervision of, your parent or guardian.

If you are based in the EEA you may only use the Retreat Platform if you are over the age at which you can provide consent to data processing under the laws of your country.
Transferring your information
The Retreat Platform is a worldwide service. By using our products or services, you authorize us to transfer and store your information outside your home country, including in the United States, for the purposes described in this policy. The privacy protections and the rights of authorities to access your personal information in such countries may not be equivalent to those of your home country.
Choices you have about your info
Our goal is to give you simple and meaningful choices regarding your information. You may close your account at any time by submitting an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will process your request in a reasonable time period. You will receive a confirmation once the email is received. When you close your account, we’ll deactivate it, remove your Retreat Platform account which includes your credits from the Retreat Platform and delete your account data. Please note that there may be legal reasons for us to keep your data, such as if we receive a law enforcement request asking us to preserve data. We may also retain certain information in our backup systems for a limited period of time, or as required by law.
How and when we share information
Anyone can see your online avatar and any information you publicly share. We also share your information with:
- Meta IAP and the Retreat App. We share information about your rewards, connections and credits with the Retreat app which uses intermediary services and databases to provide you with a personalized and relevant experience.
- Law enforcement agencies or government agencies. We only share information if we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety, rights, or property of the public, any person; to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.

However, we will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. To contact us directly regarding canceling your account or correcting or removing other personal information, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

If you think that we haven’t complied with data protection laws, you have a right to lodge a complaint with the Data Protection Commission in Ireland or with your local supervisory authority.
Because Retreat is a worldwide service, we may transfer the personal data of EEA residents to a country outside the EEA. Where we transfer information from the EEA to a country that doesn’t provide an adequate level of protection, we’ll only do so under appropriate safeguards to protect your information, like standard contractual clauses.

No waiver by GeniusX of any right under this TOS will be deemed to be either a waiver of any other right or provision or a waiver of that same right or provision at any other time. If any part of this TOS is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and the liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most clearly matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of this TOS shall continue in effect.
