and Betrayal Official App
(Last Updated: May 10, 2022 )
Our EU Representative isHasbro European Trading BV.
Our UK Representative is Hasbro UK, Ltd.
This MPP explains how Hasbro, Inc. and its affiliated companies (collectively, “Hasbro”, “we”, “our”, or “us”) collect, use, and disclose information when the Mobile Apps are used.
NOTE: the Deadpool’s Head App and the related product, the Marvel Legends Deadpool’s Head Premium Interactive Head, are solely intended for an adult audience of at least the age of 17.
This MPP and the “ESRB privacy certified” certification seal shown in the MPP confirms that Hasbro is a valid licensee, and participating member, of the Entertainment Software Rating Board's Privacy Certified Program (“ESRB”). Please see https://www.esrb.org/privacy/index.aspx for more information. To protect your privacy, we have voluntarily undertaken this privacy initiative and have had the Mobile Apps that display an ESRB Privacy Certified seal reviewed and certified by ESRB Privacy Certified to meet established online information collection and use practices. As a licensee of this privacy program, we are subject to audits of our Mobile Apps and other enforcement and accountability mechanisms administered independently by the ESRB.
We ask that you take the time to read this MPP carefully.
This MPP is effective as of the Last Updated date posted
above and applies only to information collected by Hasbro from users of the following
mobile applications and any other mobile app published by Hasbro which links to
Transformers TCG Companion
Board Game Companion App, and
Betrayal Official App.
This MPP does not apply to any other information collected by Hasbro through any other means. For clarity, this MPP does not apply to any of Hasbro’s websites; Hasbro’s other mobile apps that do not link here; Hasbro’s other online services (e.g., social media channels); or any apps, websites, or online services maintained by other companies or organizations to which we may link.
We get some info about the
device you use to play our Apps. We call
this Device Info – more on this below. We also get some info about how you like
to play with the Apps. We call this Game
Info. We get this in a way that means we can't tell who you are in real life. This
is because we try hard not to get any personal info about you (like your name
or your address). And we try to use your
personal info in a way that keeps your info safe.
What we do
like to know is how you use our Apps, like how long you play a game, what
country you are playing in and what kind of smart device you are playing on.
We get some info from the smart device you use our App on to avoid repeat information and make it easy to play with our Apps, but we try to do this in a way that keeps this info safe. We call this “Device Info.”
When an App is used for the first time, we use Microsoft App Center Analytics software to create a special identifier (a random alphanumeric code “scrambled ID”, which we term a "Install ID") which will relate to that App. The creation of the Install ID only occurs the first time the App is opened and not again unless the App is uninstalled and subsequently reinstalled (in which case it will be a new ID).
The Install ID is unique to the App you installed on your device.
If you delete our Apps from your device and then install or reinstall one of our Apps again for the same device, or a different device, theInstall ID will be different each time.
If you get the same App for different devices, theInstall ID on each device will be different, even if the same person uses the same App on different devices.
TheInstall ID in one App does not share with, or “know” about, an Install ID on another device or platform.
We use analytics to compare play of different anonymous players between Apps, including to: (i) distinguish one user from another (for counting purposes); (ii) to understand what parts of our Apps are being used; and (iii) to ensure that our Apps are appropriately secure and protected. We do not use Install IDs in order to treat users any differently, to segment our audiences, to target advertisements or push notifications, and we do not routinely collect anything that could be used in connection with the Install ID in order to identify the user in the real world.
Our Apps use Device Info, like the device’s country and city, to make sure you get the right App in the right language. Our App also uses Device Info to help you use the App and tell you things you might want to know about the App or toy. And, if there is a problem with the App, like a bug, your Device Info helps us fix it.
Hasbro will collect the device type, the device's operating system (like
iOS or Android) and language setting, the network carrier that your device uses
(e.g., Verizon, AT&T, Vodafone, EE, Orange), the Install ID (so long as the
device connects to the Internet) and will guess the country and city (from the
network info used by the device). Hasbro uses this information to work out
which version of the App to install on the device, and in which language (e.g.,
if the device language is set to French, then the French version would be
delivered), to provide the user with a suitable App, for performance of our
contract or for our legitimate business interests in delivering and maintaining
We use some info sent from the App to help
us figure out how players use our App, so we can make it better, easier and
more fun to use.
We call this info “Game
Info.” It may include things to help us keep track
your progress, like when you complete a level or reach a new milestone in the App. And it includes info on how long and how
often you play with the App, so that we know if we are doing a good job or need
to do better. We get Game Info whenever
you use your App and if you have a connection to the Internet.
The Install ID is used to assist us in gathering non-personal analytics and statistical information regarding the use of our Apps and game play data (both Game Info and Device Info), e.g., session length (how long the App was played for), what game levels were reached in the App, whether the app connected to a Hasbro toy, etc.
We use this Game Info, which does not identify individual users, in our own legitimate business interests, to analyze trends, to administer our Apps, debug them in case of problems and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole (e.g., number of users in a particular country or region), so that we can improve our Apps and toys.
Although Game Info is associated with Device Info, including the Install ID, we do not link this data to users’ personal information. Even knowing an Install ID, device type, operating system, device language, gameplay statistics, network carrier and estimated city and country together would not be enough to identify the individual who used the App. Nevertheless, Hasbro limits which employees are permitted to see the Install ID associated with particular data. Moreover, our service providers (see below) can only view aggregated data.
We only collect and use the information that
we've told you about in this document and only for the reasons we’ve explained. We only collect the info that we need.
Sometimes, if you still don't want us to use
this info, you may need to stop using or uninstall the App.
In this MPP we describe the types of personal info we collect
and why we need it. In some
circumstances, you may still decide that you do not want us to collect and use
this info in the way that we have described.
If we can provide you with the App functionality without this info, we
will let you know and give you the option to choose not to provide us with this
information. However, sometimes we
cannot provide the App without this personal info and if you decide that you
still don't want us to collect and use it, you will have to uninstall and not
use the App.
The App can access wi-fi for updates and periodically may send Device Info and Game Info to us via the Internet. If you do not have the companion product (for example, the Marvel Legend’s Deadpool’s Head Premium Interactive Head) (the “Product”), the App also includes additional Product information, including where to buy it. The Transformers Trading Card Game, HeroQuest Boardgame, and Avalon Hill Betrayal at House on the Hill Boardgame companion products are not connected digitally to their companion apps at all.
The following only applies to the Deadpool’s Head Companion App:
The App also makes a secure connection to the Product and the App may be used in several modes to play interactively with the Product. This requires an active Bluetooth connection between the Product and your mobile device. Hasbro has made this a secure connection.
You may save videos and recorded moves of the Product locally to your device. The App does not share these or otherwise transmit them to any other device (except your individually paired Product) or over the Internet, etc. in any manner from your device. The videos are stored locally on your device camera roll and the digital instructions for the Product are stored in App memory locally.
Microsoft App Center Analytics software (Microsoft,
Inc.) to assist us in gathering analytics and statistical data in connection
with the Apps (the Install ID and Device Info discussed in Section 2, above).
We use Microsoft App Center Analytics software (Microsoft, Inc.) to assist us in gathering analytics and statistical data in connection with the Apps (the Install ID and Device Info discussed in Section 2, above).This data is not passed to or shared with Microsoft or any other third party.
We use Microsoft Power BI to provide a dashboard for Hasbro employees to generate reports from the aggregated Device Info and Game Info.
We do not share your personal information with third-parties other than as described in this MPP, or in connection with the Mobile Apps, other than:
With our group companies, third-party vendors, consultants and other service providers or partners who are working on our behalf on the Apps and need access to your information to carry out their work for us. These entities (including those mentioned above) have agreed to maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of the personal information they obtain from us, and not to use your personal information for any purpose other than as described in this MPP or as required or permitted by applicable law.
With your consent, to any other person.
strive not to collect any personal information, as described above.
keep the Game Info from all Apps in the United States, and other countries where
we have other offices or where our service providers are located. These
countries may have data protection laws that are different from the laws of
your country. However, we have taken
safeguards to require that any personal information we may collect will remain
protected in accordance with this MPP. These include implementing the European
Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses for transfers of personal information
between our group companies, which require all group companies to protect
personal information they process from the EEA in accordance with European
Union data protection law.
We limit the info we get to Device
Info and Game Info. We try hard not to
get personal info like your real name and address. But in case you want to
know, we generally get rid of all Game Info and Device Info after we no longer
have a need for it.
We strive not to collect any personal information, as described above.
If we do have any of your personal information relating to the Apps, we retain your personal information for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this MPP and in accordance with our retention policies, as applicable, unless a longer retention period is required by applicable laws and/or regulations. Once we take an app down from the app stores, we destroy all raw data within six months.
The Deadpool’s Head Companion App and the companion Product are intended for an adult audience, at least over 17 years of age. Transformers TCG Companion App and HeroQuest Board Game Companion App are both general audience experiences.
We explained that we try not to collect any personal info about you like your real name or address. In fact, we make sure that we can't identify you in the real world from any of the personal info we collect about you. Because of this, we are not able to retrieve or delete Game Info or Device Info about you, because we are not able to link your Game Info or Device Info to any information we hold about you (so, we can't find it!). However, if you are worried about how we use your personal info, or if you have any questions, we will do everything we can to help you. If you think we have your personal info, you may ask us about the following:
you're in Europe, you have rights about your info. This means you can make us
do some things with your personal info or stop us doing some other things with
your info, and you can complain if you don't like what we're doing with your

If you are under 18 years old and you are having trouble understanding this section, it might be good to ask your mom and dad to help you and explain all this.

We strive not to collect any personal information, as described above. However, Hasbro has established policies in an effort to protect any personal information it may have against loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and/or destruction. For example, Hasbro strives to provide only those employees performing a legitimate business function with access to personal information. Hasbro also reviews its security procedures periodically to consider appropriate new technology and updated methods.
Despite our efforts, please be aware that no security measure is ever perfect or impenetrable. To that end, Hasbro will notify users of a data breach affecting any of their personal information that Hasbro may have, as necessary in accordance with applicable law.
