Participating in the Game, using material

If you and your team are looking for free material to use, please check the copyright page which has some free IP material info. Or use the material on this platform or check Social media EmeraldForestHotel Flickr for material.
By participating in this Game, you accept the terms of service, as indicated below.

Legal issues

Let's just start off with a simple summary of the text beneath: Be smart about what you post and how you post it. Don't use material from others without their consent. And realize that anything you post (as in real life) can and will be used, indexed, be visible etc., now and in the future.

  • Information to coaches, participants and all others using the simulation

This page is maybe 'boring' but we think it is important that you read how the rights are organized with regard to all aspects of the simulation, especially looking at legislation like GDPR (AVG). By participating or using the Game, you agree to this. Unfortunately, you cannot use the simulation without accepting the regulations. The points below reflect joining the Game or using the Game in any way.

  • Informal

Just to put it in simple text:

During the Game and the role play we will ask for some personal information, like your name or mobile-number, or when joining a Facebook or WhatsApp group.
This information will only be used in elements related to the Emerald Forest simulation. On this platform and linked sites like Flickr and YouTube, your 'game' content might stay visible after your competition has ended. And, it might be used for research, presentations etc. The content will never be sold for purposes outside of the scope of the Game, nor used for other purposes.
All your teamwork will only be stored, as this might be needed for proof for your company or institute (credit points). It will not be used otherwise.
The FB group used in the Game is private. It will be there for four years, as this might be needed for proof for your company or institute.
Other content created by your own team, is your own responsibility. We advise you to delete 'game-related' accounts a few months after the Game, if you are sure it is no longer needed as proof in any circumstances for your institution or company.
If you want any footage you are depicted in, to be taken down after the game, contact the Building Team and e-mail emeraldforesthotel at gmail dot com. For reference, check the Privacy policy

Content goals

This website, like all other elements on other platforms, is intended to serve general information purposes related to the management simulation Emerald Forest Hotel only. The information provided on this website is not intended to be true or to represent a real existing company in any way. The content is a mix of a variety of sources. All posts express the views of the authors (so also you) and do not represent the personal views of the Building Team of the simulation. The information on this platform is monitored with continuous care and attention by the Building Team; however we cannot give any warranty as to the accuracy or completeness of the information on this website. The Building Team is under no circumstances liable for damages of whatever nature, in any way resulting from the use of this platform or resulting from or related to the use of content presented on or made available through this website or damages resulting from the non-availability of this website.

This platform includes references and/or hyperlinks to third party websites. These references and hyperlinks are included for information purposes only and are selected by the Building Team in good faith. The Building Team is working under the responsibility of Creative Masters and does not give any guarantee or accepts any liability in relation to the content, use, and availability of any content related to the Game.

Real time

As the entire simulation is an on-going process and there are hundreds of people working on this project in real time, it is hard to oversee all changes and all impact. All postings are, for that matter, the individual responsibility of the authors or posters of that specific piece of data. If, by any means, you think that the content of these sites violates your rights in any way, is inappropriate or otherwise unacceptable please email emeraldforesthotel at gmail dot com and we will consider your wishes seriously.

  • Posting

By participating in the Emerald Forest simulation, all participants and others involved are accepting the following. By posting any content you explicitly state that you have the IP rights of the posted content. For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like photos, videos, texts, slogans, names etc. (IP content), you specifically grant the Emerald Forest Building Team a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any of this IP content that you post on or in connection with Emerald Forest Hotel simulation anywhere (IP license).

You state not to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy or which otherwise breaches any law.

The Emerald Forest Building Team have the sole right to reuse, adapt or change any content related to the Emerald Forest at any time or moment according to their insights. We expect that participants will treat each other with respect. We will delete materials that do not live up to these rules and the goals of this simulation. Created and uploaded content during the Game can be used in any activities related to the Game by the Building team.

Using the simulation should be instructive and fun, and always has been in all of the competitions played. Just remember that almost anything you do, say or post will be open to the world due to the fact that most activities are done on the internet and/or social media. Just keep that in mind: This is not an exclusive issue related to the Game but also a general technical issue on the internet and social media.

On participating in the Emerald Forest Hotel simulation, you accept that pictures and videos of you might be taken in your role as a user, participants or coach in the simulation. All of this material will be used for purposes related to the Emerald Forest Hotel project, without limitations on a non-exclusive, transferable, royalty-free basis (check these cases).

  • Removing your information

Notwithstanding the foregoing, anyone who has an objection to any part of the content as it is on the platform is encouraged to contact us by sending an e-mail and request for removal (as required by GDPR-AVG). We do have the ability to remove some of the content on some of the platforms. If possible, we will make every effort to do so within a reasonable time frame, allowing for the manual nature of the removal process. We also reserve the right to remove any post without providing a reason. Regretfully we do not have this power on other platforms, search results etc., such as getting links or references removed from Google; each brand has its own forms: Click here to go to the Google one.

Online activity waiver

Given that all posting of content appears in real-time, it is impossible for the Building Team to review all posts before they become publicly readable. The entirety of the project is a simulation used in educational/training sessions. None of the content is meant to reflect the real-life situation. The Building Team does actively monitor posts but is not responsible for the content of any of the content. All posts express the views of the authors and do not represent the views of the Building Team.


The whole of the content of the Game is IP-rights protected. Before any usage, please contact the Building Team. More info on this is on the Copyright page.
