Terms of Use


Welcome to the Bright Pilots Icebreakers! These Terms of Use govern your use of the Bright Pilots icebreakers (“the Service”). When you register a user account or use the Service, you agree to these terms.

The Bright Pilots Icebreakers Service

Bright Pilots (“We”) agree to provide you with the Service. The Service is made up of the following aspects:

  • Offering descriptions and illustrations of Icebreaker activities to use with groups for meetings, workshops and offsites.
    We all need meetings of various kinds to move work forward from a single idea to making an impact in the world of our customers, stakeholders and communities. Meetings can get pretty monotonous after a while, and the way We all run those meetings can start to give diminishing returns. The aim of providing these Icebreaker activities (“Icebreakers”) is to increase the effectiveness of your meetings, to strengthen trust and camaraderie within the groups who are meeting together, and to increase interest and engagement for everyone involved.
  • Offering customized access for more effective facilitation.
    The Service is available to anyone in a restricted way: anyone can view one Icebreaker at a time, at random. The Service is also available in a more comprehensive customized way, through access using a registered user account. This allows full access to all Icebreakers, as well as the ability to filter the list according to several factors, and to bookmark a sub-set of Icebreakers according to the user’s preference.
  • Offering access to universally available content.
    Unless specified on particular Icebreakers, We do not own or hold any intellectual property rights to any of the Icebreakers contained in the Service. All of these Icebreakers are available – in some form or another – elsewhere for public access. Every reasonable attempt has been made to determine the source and creator of the Icebreakers, which is then recorded in the content of those specific icebreakers. That said, We do not know the origins of most of them. If you are the creator of any of the Icebreakers, or you hold intellectual property rights or copyright, or you have any information about who does hold intellectual property rights or copyright, We ask you to contact us at Bright Pilots HQ with that information, so that We can seek permission.
  • Developing and using features that help to increase engagement.
    The Service also includes the ability for anyone to Like specific Icebreakers, to Share specific Icebreakers with others online, and to indicate if they’ve Done specific Icebreakers. We use this information to learn which Icebreakers have more appeal, so that We can continue to improve the overall Service by modifying existing content and adding new content. Likes, Dones and Shares are not recorded against any specific user accounts, to keep this engagement anonymous.
  • Ensuring stable access to our Service.
    This Service is free for everyone. To provide this Service, We must store and transfer data across our systems, including outside of your country of residence, using a reputable secure web hosting service. It is the responsibility of this web service provider to ensure 99.9% uptime of the web hosting service, while it is Our responsibility to ensure the integrity and functionality of the code and other assets of the Service.
  • Research and innovation.
    We reserve the right to use the information We have to study our Service and collaborate with others on research to make our Service better and contribute to the wellbeing of our community.
