When FanDuel Discloses Information

We may share your personally identifiable information (such as name or email address) with other, third-party companies for their commercial or marketing use with your consent or as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out.

FanDuel also reserves the right to disclose personally identifiable information that FanDuel believes, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to enforce our terms and conditions, take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend itself against any third-party claims or allegations, to respond to a subpoena, legal order, or official request, to protect the security or integrity of our web site, and to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of FanDuel, our Users or others.

Your Choices

You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information through FanDuel, in which case FanDuel may not be able to provide certain services to you.

To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you profile access or making corrections. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information at all times.

Data Security

FanDuel uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to FanDuel and you do so at your own risk.

Merger, Sale, or Bankruptcy

In the event that FanDuel is acquired by or merged with a third party entity, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information we have collected from our Users as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control. In the unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors' rights generally, we may not be able to control how your personal information is treated, transferred, or used.

Third Party Advertising

The ads appearing on the FanDuel site are delivered to Members/Groups by our Web advertising partners. Our Web advertising partners may use cookies. Doing this allows the ad network to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement. In this way, ad networks may compile information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw their advertisements and determine which ads are clicked on. This information allows an ad network to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. FanDuel does not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed on the computer of any Member or other user of the FanDuel.com website by the third-party ad servers or ad networks.

Except where prohibited, participation in a contest constitutes the player's consent to the use by FanDuel and its agents of player's name, likeness, voice, opinions, and biographical information for publicity, advertising, trade, or promotional purposes in any media or manner, now known or hereafter devised, worldwide, without further payment, consideration, notice, or approval.
