Third Party Advertising and Analytics Companies

Certain ads appearing on FanDuel are delivered to Members/Groups by our advertising partners. Our advertising partners may use cookies and other automated technologies to collect data, including the technologies described in the “Information We Collect” section above. Doing this allows the ad companies to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement. In this way, the ad companies may compile information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw their advertisements and measure your interaction with each ad. This information allows ad companies to deliver targeted advertisements that may be of increased interest to you, both on our Service and elsewhere online. To learn more and to opt out of the collection of data on our website by third parties for interest-based advertising purposes, please visit Note that opting out will not affect the quantity of ads you see online but likely will cause the ads to be less relevant to you.

In some cases, the third parties mentioned in this section may maintain the information they collect in personally identifiable form.
