Legal Stuff

Updated 9th May 2018

The following page exists for 3 main reasons. To product our intellectual property, to make it clear we intend no harm through the production, promotion, and sale of our product, and to protect and personal information of our fans, customers, and followers. A lot of this is “legaleze”, so we’ve decided to start each chapter with a plain language run through of what we’re really trying to achieve. The “legaleze” is leading at all times. If you ever have any questions, just e-mail us at


The following chapter covers us from being held responsible by anyone’s actions, which may involve our game or brand in any way. We understand that playing BARPIG can get a bit hectic at times, but like anything else bear the comfort, privacy, and safety of others and yourselves in mind at all times when playing BARPIG.
It also protects us for those occasions when our website might be down or out of date for various reasons.
We’d also like to say that our game is intended to be based on our own creation, and in no way meant to represents any other person or entity unless explicitly stated.
We’ve also legally made clear who we’re talking about in the rest of the this page when we say “BARPIG” (namely, Phil & Johno, and their company).
Finally this chapter says that by using our product, visiting our site, or using anything related to BARPIG that we’ve created and published, you automatically agree to these conditions. If you disagree, simply stop using our ‘services’.

BARPIG, it’s creators, representatives, employees, contracted agents, and associates bear absolutely no responsibility and/or liability for any direct, indirect, special or consequential damages and or losses of any kind resulting from any use, misuse, inability to use or interpretation of the contents of the BARPIG game and associated publications, information, and materials provided both online and in hard-copy format, even if BARPIG, it’s creators, representatives, employees, contracted agents, or associates have been advised of the potential or possibility of such damage.

The BARPIG game and it’s associated publications, information, and materials provided both online and in hard-copy format hold no warranties or representations, either expressed or implied. Additionally BARPIG does not warrant that the associated website will be constantly or at all available, that information borne on the website is accurate, misleading, true or complete, and that no content of the BARPIG game and it’s associated publications, information, and materials provided both online and in hard-copy format constitutes or is meant to constitute any kind of advice.

By using the BARPIG game and it’s associated publications, information, and materials provided both online and in hard-copy format (so in extension also this website) you agree to the above stated disclaimer. Should you disagree, then you must immediately cease utilisation of the BARPIG game and it’s associated publications, information, and materials provided both online and in hard-copy format.

Further reference in these terms and conditions to the company registered as a business by partnership (VOF), co-owned by Jonathan Franklin and Phillip Melchers, for the purpose of creating, publishing, producing, and on-selling of the BARPIG game, will be referred to as “BARPIG”.

Our terms and conditions for online purchases follows EU legal requirements for the operation of webshops, details can be found at

BARPIG’s online webshop environment employs encryption via SSL/TLS security certificates to ensure customer’s privacy is maintained, and BARPIG uses third parties for the execution of payments that have proven security protocols in place to ensure customer privacy. Any damages incurred due to security lapses as a result of usage of these third party services exempts BARPIG’s liability. BARPIG will however endeavor to assist the customer in as far as is practicable to recover any losses incurred from third parties.

Purchases made via will be delivered at the earliest possible opportunity to the customer. BARPIG uses global postal systems, and unless otherwise stated the packaging is able to fit in standard letterboxes. BARPIG by law is required to ensure delivery within 30 days of placement of the order unless the customer specifies a different delivery time that has been agreed with by BARPIG.

The total price as specified on the BARPIG webshop when finalising purchases is the total amount that will be charged to the customer, and includes local Dutch taxes and shipping costs. Prices are given in euros (€), it is the customer’s responsibility to apply appropriate conversions to the customer’s local currency.

Purchases made on the website include a 14 day return policy. Customers may under any circumstance decide to cancel and/or return their order, and in doing so receive a full refund for the price of the purchase, including shipping costs.

If the goods have already been received, the customer is required to return these to BARPIG within 14 days of receipt, informing BARPIG of these actions. Shipping costs for returned orders is not covered by BARPIG as per these terms and conditions.

Our privacy policy is necessary because in operating our business in the online environment, there are elements of your personal information which we collect, have access to, and use in making our website run properly, engaging with you on social media platforms, and run our online advertising campaigns from time to time.

We’re honest about this. We have data from our customers, and have access to data about our fans, and can use data gathered by third parties (eg Facebook, Instagram, etc). We do believe in your privacy, and therefore we limit how much data we gather, how long we hold it for, and how we use it.

BARPIG fully supports the EU Parliament’s General Data Protection Regulation intiative (GDPR), effective May 25th, 2018.

This chapter clarifies that our business operates within the requirements of this law, and we even take steps ourselves where we believe protecting your data is important.

Because we believe so strongly in this, and in our moral obligation as a business to protect your personal identity, we’ll line out our business policy in plain language first, in sequence of your journey through our website and services. We’ll then give you the short story version of the rest of our privacy policy’s statement regarding what data our third party companies use, and how they use it to our knowledge.

  1. Visiting our Website – Just by reading this document, you’ve gained access to our site. We use cookies on this site as well as analytics data provided by Google.
    Cookies help our website change to best suite the device you’re viewing it with, or remember if you’ve visited a page to load it faster again, or remember your order details as you go through the payment process. A lot of cookies are actually made by software developers, who’s tools we use in our website. Our website is made using WordPress, and we endeavour to make sure the tools we use don’t gather more data than they’re supposed to. You can expect a developer for one of the tools to gather information on, for instance, the type of device you’re using to view this webpage, so they can improve the way their tool works with those devices in future.
    Google Analytics gives us an idea of our customer base. We remain a business, and part of a business is knowing where our customers live, how long they spend on our website, which parts they visit, and which page brought them here. If we had our own shop, we would be noticing which shelves you look at, how long you spend in our shop, and we might even ask where you come from and how you found us. Whilst this data is specific to you when it’s recorded, we’ve instructed Google to copy each element of these details we’re tracking to a tally, and then delete the single record of your visit 14 months later (the minimum period available from Google). This way we can see trends in our customers over time, but there’s no way for us to know how long anyone from a specific location spent on a specific page; All the links between that data is removed. If you wish for us to remove your details earlier, let us know by email to, and we’ll purge our Google analytics logs ensuring your specific data set is deleted within the 14 month period. Details on what information Google Analytics gathers can be found further down in this chapter.
  2. Making a Purchase Online – Once you purchase a copy of BARPIG, our website uses tools and third party software to complete your payment. This will also use your data, and these third parties will also be required under EU GDPR to handle your data carefully and delete it after a period of time. Once the payment is complete, we receive your data regarding shipping address, what you bought, how much you paid, your name and contact e-mail address. We use this data to complete and ship your order to you. Once that’s done, we retain this data for a period of 5 years as required by the Dutch tax authority (in case they audit us). We retain this data on our online logs using Google Docs for a period of 3 months, in case of missing shipments or returns, and then we export the data to an external hard disk as well as print off a hard copy. This data is then removed from the online environment, and is kept safe in our HQ (our home, essentially). We also save your e-mail address in our Mailchimp account, and you will receive an email regarding this, asking if you agree to us saving your details. We do this so that we can inform you of any big important announcements like expansions, upcoming Kickstarter campaigns, or important updates to the game you bought. We don’t spam. EVER. We hate spam, unless it’s fried with eggs, hot sauce, and a touch of Worcester sauce.
  3. Kickstarter Backers – If you’re a Kickstarter backer, Kickstarter has collected your data for us to complete shipment of your rewards to us. We’ve received details of what you backed, how much you backed for, your name, shipping address, contact e-mail, and contact telephone number for shipping purposes. As with web shop purchases, we retain this data for 5 years for tax auditing purposes, and remove it from the online environment after 3 months by exporting the data to an external hard disk as well as printing off a paper hard copy, kept safe in our HQ (again, our home). Your email address has, and will, be used for bit announcements like expansions, upcoming Kickstarter campaigns, or important updates to BARPIG. Again, we hate spam, unless it’s stir-fried and served on rice. Even then… it’s a push… At the time of publishing this page, you will have received an opt-in email confirming you’d like to remain on our mailing list.
  4. Buying from us at an Event – If you’ve bought a pack from us at an event, we will have asked if you’d like to receive a discount code for friends. You will have written your email address on our list at that time, and shortly after received an e-mail from us. We will also ask if you want to receive big important updates from us, like points 2. and 3. above. Your choice then is not set in stone, and if you change your mind, you can always unsubscribe from our mailing lists using the link at the bottom of e-mail we send to you. We make a point of avoiding Spam, unless it’s served as a burger with cheese and fried mushrooms, which apparently works well.
  5. Social Media – If you use one of our social media services, they will be collecting data from you and your account. We will have access to this data through their business side services they offer us, and we can tell you it is a lot. Like all companies, the EU GDPR will require them to de-identify a lot of these details, and we’re happy about that! We don’t want to hear that our ads, when we publish them, have been stalking people for days on end. It’s as creepy and wrong as it sounds, and we don’t support that. We are happy that our ads will be visible to people who have an interest in Board Gaming, between the ages of 25-45, and speak English. We wouldn’t feel right about our BARPIG ads confusing your grandmother who’s looking at pictures of her best friend’s beautifully blooming hyacinths. For clarity’s sake, we use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat. Their specific data gathering and usage can be found on their own pages, and our legal excemptions can be found later in this page.

With all of the above, being in our records because you made a purchase, signing up to an email list, or using us on a Social Media platform, you have the right at all times to request that we remove your details from our records. Purchase details for taxation reasons are limited in how much we can remove, but we can limit that to initial, last name, country of purchase, contact e-mail, and what you bought. If you’d prefer we do this for you, email us at and we’ll do everything on our end.

We hope this clarifies where we stand on all this. We reserve the right to adapt this document as necessary over time to better protect your and our privacy. The publication date of this document can be found at the top of the page. Feel free to save a copy of the version you’re looking at for your own records.


Now for the real legaleze. We’ve completed the following with the help of’s services. If you find something is lacking, please inform us at and we’ll adjust things accordingly…

Additional notes for Alternative Drinking Rules

Drink Responsibly

BARPIG can be played as a drinking game that doesn’t require the consumption of alcohol, “Alcohol not included, or required“. Additionally our alternative rules for this type of game clearly it is up to players to determine what they find constitutes as a ‘drink’ when required during game play, it is up to players to decide how closely they follow the game, and in no way do we expect players to binge drink.

Should players decide to play when consuming alcohol, they are personally responsible for staying within their limit, and are also responsible for abiding by locals drinking (age) laws of their country. You should never drink alcohol in combination with prescription medication, if pregnant, or if consumption severely affects your personal health. Stick to drinking limits when driving or operating machinery, or have an alternative transport option.
