Privacy Policy

Effective Date: March 13, 2012

This Privacy Policy is incorporated by reference into the GoRecess Terms Of Use. The term "GoRecess" includes GoRecess, Inc., our affiliates, and It explains how GoRecess may:

  • collect,
  • use, and
  • disclose

information it obtains through the GoRecess Service.

The "GoRecess Service" is defined as any website, mobile application, or Internet service under the control of GoRecess, whether partial or otherwise, in connection with providing a platform for GoRecess' services.

Policy Scope. This Privacy Policy covers how GoRecess treats personal information ("Personal Information") and other information that GoRecess collects through the GoRecess Service.

Personal Information Defined. GoRecess considers "Personal Information" to include information that alone or when in combination with other information may be used to readily identify, contact, or locate you, such as: name, address, email address, or phone number. GoRecess does not consider Personal Information to include information that has been anonymized so that it does not allow a third party to easily identify a specific individual.

Use and Acceptance. By using this website or the GoRecess Service and accepting the Terms of Use, you also agree to this Privacy Policy. If you do not accept this Privacy Policy, you must not use the GoRecess Service.

New Uses of Personal Information and Other Information. From time to time, GoRecess may use Personal Information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our Privacy Policy. If our information practices change regarding information previously collected, GoRecess will take reasonable efforts to provide notice and obtain consent to any such uses as may be required by law.

Posting of Revised Privacy Policy. GoRecess will post any adjustments to the Privacy Policy on this web page. The revised version will be effective at the time it is posted. If you are concerned about how your information is used, bookmark this page and read the Privacy Policy periodically.

Other Websites and Pages. When you navigate away from the GoRecess Service to websites or apps controlled by third parties, you leave the GoRecess Service, at which point this Privacy Policy no longer applies. You will not receive a notice warning when you leave the GoRecess Service.


Personal Information Collection. You may search for classes and studios using the GoRecess Service without providing Personal Information. However, you will need to provide Personal Information to register with the GoRecess Service to book a class. To register with the GoRecess Service, you must submit your first and last name, email address, and password.

You may also register by using your Facebook log-in credentials. When you log in with your Facebook credentials, we collect the Personal Information you have made publicly available in Facebook, such as your name and profile picture and use that information to register with the GoRecess Service. We may also obtain other information with your permission, such as your gender and date of birth. The information the GoRecess Service obtains may depend on your Facebook privacy settings.

The GoRecess Service may also collect Personal Information from you in other ways. For example, you may be asked to provide your city, state, zip code, or neighborhood to find studios near you. The GoRecess Service may also collect Personal Information through contacts with our customer-support team and if you include it when you submit reviews or comments while using the GoRecess Service.

The GoRecess Service may collect credit card and billing information to process payments. This information is secured according to PCI Data Security Standards.

The GoRecess Service may collect and store your location information if you enable your computer or mobile device to send it to us. Changing the settings on your computer or mobile device may prevent this data collection.

Cookies, Automatic Data Collection, and Related Technologies. In addition, the GoRecess Service collects and stores information that is generated automatically as you use it. This information includes anonymous usage statistics. To collect this information, the GoRecess Service may use log files, web beacons, cookies, and other similar technologies.

For example, the GoRecess Service uses cookies to store users’ preferences and website or app activity session information. "Cookies" are bits of information that are stored by your browser or app on your computer or mobile device. This technology allows for the storage of user preferences, user ID, and password. You can turn off the “cookie” function in most standard Internet browsers; however, the majority of the features of the GoRecess Service may not function properly without them.

The GoRecess Service automatically collects other system information, such as your web request, Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, browser language, domain names, referring and exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of these page views, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of your request, and the unique identity of your browser. This information is used to analyze trends, administer the GoRecess Service, improve the design of the GoRecess Service, track user movement, and otherwise enhance the GoRecess Service.

By using the GoRecess Service, you are authorizing GoRecess to gather, parse, and retain data related to the provision of the GoRecess Service.

They will be able to see your first name, first initial of your last name, other optional profile information, and ratings and reviews you post.

Advertising. GoRecess does not rent, sell, or share Personal Information about you with other people or nonaffiliated companies for adverting purposes.

Studios. GoRecess may provide some Personal Information, such as your name and email address, to a studio when you book a class there, just as if you booked a class directly with the studio.

Merger, Sale, or Other Asset Transfers. Information about you in GoRecess’ possession may be disclosed as part of a merger, acquisition, sale of company assets, financing due diligence, or transition of service to another provider, as well as in the unlikely event of insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership in which your Personal Information would be transferred as one of the business assets of the company. GoRecess does not guarantee that any entity receiving such information in connection with one of these transactions will comply with all terms of this Privacy Policy.

GoRecess may also disclose your Personal Information with your permission.


When GoRecess handles information that you disclose through the GoRecess Service, regardless of where this occurs, GoRecess takes steps to ensure that your information is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
