Article II : Escape Games
Article II-I : Description of the Service
The Masterio Escape Games are indoor puzzle games.
By selling the proposed Service, NO GRAAL grants the Customer the occupation of a defined and limited space of one or more rooms (hereinafter referred to as « the Room » or « the Game Room ») for the sole purpose of participating in a game organised by NO GRAAL during a determined period of time (hereinafter referred to as « the Session »).
The Service also includes the support of the Customer during all the time of his presence in the premises of Masterio, by one of the employees of NO GRAAL, hereinafter referred to as « the Game Master ».
The Participants agree that the duration of their stay in the Room shall be no longer than the duration previously set, specific to each scenario and indicated on its page on the website www.masterio.fr, whether or not they have reached the end of the scenario and solved all the puzzles. This point is part of the very principle of the Escape Game concept. The Participants also accept that the Game may stop before the end of the maximum duration, once they have reached the end of the scenario, without this being subject to any adjustment or compensation.
Article II-II : Conditions of participation
The Masterio Escape Games are open to all Participants aged 12 years or older. In the case of minors under the age of 15, the presence of two adults in the group of Participants is required. In case of doubt about the age of a Participant, NO GRAAL reserves the right to ask for proof of identity.
While on the premises of NO GRAAL, Participants agree to behave in a respectable manner, to comply with the rules and to cooperate with NO GRAAL’s staff. As such, NO GRAAL does not tolerate any form of violence, whether verbal or physical, in the form of harassment or intimidation towards its employees, and thus reserves the right to refuse access to the Game Room to any person whose behavior would resemble the elements listed above. NO GRAAL also reserves the right to deny access to any person under the influence of alcohol or drugs, for the safety of that person and his/her entourage. For all of the above conditions, no compensation or refund will be given for denial of access.
It is strictly forbidden for Participants to enter the premises with food, drinks or animals.
It is imperative to respect the schedule set for the Event. However, in the event that the delay to the booked session amounts to 15 minutes or less, it is up to the Participants to decide whether they still wish to start the Game. In any case, the Room must be vacated at the time specified in the reservation.
In case of delay of more than 15 minutes after the initial reservation time, NO GRAAL reserves the right to refuse access to the Participant(s). The schedules are systematically reminded in the confirmation and information emails sent by NO GRAAL and it is the responsibility of the Participants to respect them.
Article II-III : Booking and payment

Therefore, the Customer acknowledges in the Contract that any intentional damage or damage caused by unauthorized handling of the Room and its equipment will be billed.
NO GRAAL reserves the right to interrupt any game if one or more players behave in a manner that is deemed dangerous to the safety of other players or to the integrity of the decor or facilities.
Furthermore, Participants are required to use the Room and its equipment in a manner that does not cause or risk causing any damage to other Participants.
Article II-V : Images and Privacy
Due to the nature of the escape game, no recording can be made in the Room. Thus, the use of video and/or audio recording devices (this includes, but is not limited to: cell phones, cameras, Google Glass, Go Pro) is strictly forbidden. Any use of such devices may result in the complete termination of the game and the exclusion of all Participants without any compensation.
NO GRAAL expects the Participants not to disclose the details of the game directly and/or indirectly. Any disclosure in whole or in part would violate the commercial interests of NO GRAAL SAS.
Each Escape Game Room is equipped with a video surveillance and listening device that allows NO GRAAL’s staff to accompany Participants during their Game Session.

Article IV : Intellectual Property
In accordance with the laws governing literary and artistic property rights, the reproduction, representation, publication, transmission or use of all or part of the elements that make up the Services without the explicit agreement of NO GRAAL is strictly forbidden, under penalty of legal action.
In particular, the copyright and all other rights relating to the material and immaterial supports, both for the form and the content, made available to the Participants during a Service remain the property of NO GRAAL. The Customer agrees to use these elements in a strictly private context.
The Customer cannot declare himself the owner of a work ordered for the sole reason that it was created at his request and that he/she paid the corresponding invoice.

NO GRAAL can in no way be held responsible for the theft or loss of personal items during one of its Services.
The individual responsibility of each Participant, and it alone, is therefore engaged. Each Participant declares that he/she is personally insured against personal injury. Otherwise, NO GRAAL cannot be held responsible for the absence of this personal insurance.
Any interruption of a current Event, by the will of the Customer and for any reason whatsoever, will not give rise to any refund.
NO GRAAL expects fair play from the Participants. Any attempt at cheating, fraud or any act of physical violence will result in the exclusion of its author, without the possibility of reimbursement.
NO GRAAL is not responsible for third-party services offered by partner companies.
Article VI : Image Rights
The Participants to the Services, or any other related event, organized by NO GRAAL implicitly agree to give up their image rights related to any photographic, video or other media, and authorize the full ownership and commercial use on all media, on behalf of NO GRAAL. These visual elements can be used by NO GRAAL to feed its website or its digital ecosystem (indicative list not exhaustive: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram …)
In particular, photos of each team of Participants may be taken before or after the Game Session. These photos will be sent by e-mail to the Customer within a reasonable time after the game session. NO GRAAL will not be responsible for the use of the photos by the Customer.
In the event that the Participant does not wish to give up his or her right to the image, he/she must explicitly request this before the start of any Event, either by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to the Host on the day of the Event.
Article VII : Force Majeure
All circumstances beyond the control of the parties preventing the performance of their obligations under normal conditions shall be considered as causes for exoneration of the obligations of the parties and shall result in their suspension.
Will be considered as force majeure all facts or circumstances irresistible, external to the parties, unforeseeable, unavoidable, independent of the will of the parties and which could not be prevented by the latter, despite all reasonably possible efforts. Expressly, are considered as force majeure or fortuitous events, in addition to those usually retained by the jurisprudence of the French courts and tribunals: the blocking of means of transport or supplies, earthquakes, fires, storms, floods, lightning, the stoppage of telecommunication networks or difficulties specific to telecommunication networks external to the Customers.
The party invoking the above circumstances must immediately notify the other party of their occurrence, as well as of their disappearance. Both parties will use their best efforts to prevent or reduce the effects of a non-performance of the agreement caused by this event. The other party reserves the right to verify and check the reality of the facts.
Article VIII : Personal Data
The Customer is responsible for the accuracy of the information communicated to NO GRAAL in the context of the establishment of the commercial relationship and the realization of a Service, in particular those entered on the online reservation form on the website.
