Privacy Policy

Hello, and welcome to our Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy helps you to make informed decisions about your relationship with us, so please read it carefully. We hope you’re sitting comfortably and getting ready for some great tunes. Here we go…

1 Introduction

This is our Privacy Policy. Before getting into the details, we’d like to highlight some of the key principles behind it. These principles are important to us because we know they’re important to you.

The Privacy Policy is here to do three things:

  1. Explain the way we use information that you share with us in order to build a great product and give you a great experience with it;
  2. Ensure that you understand what information we collect with your permission, and what we do — and do not do — with it;
  3. Hold us accountable for protecting your rights and your privacy under this policy.

All the information we collect is related to providing the FantasyRules services and its features.

Broadly speaking, there are two categories of information we collect: 1) information that we must have in order for you to use FansRule; and 2) information that we can use to provide additional features and improved experiences if you choose to share that information.

The first category includes:

The second category includes:

The distinction between these two categories is important. Information in the first category is information you must provide in order to use FansRule. When you agree to our Privacy Policy, you give us the right to collect this information and use it for the purposes described. Information in the second category is information we will only collect if you explicitly give us permission to do so in the future.

For this second category of information, we will ask for your permission before first accessing it, we will describe how we will use it if you give us permission, we will only use the information for the purpose we described, and you will always have the ability to change your mind and revoke that permission. Acceptance of our Privacy Policy does not mean you have granted us permission to access or use information in the second category; we’re just explaining to you that we might ask you for that permission in order to provide you a better experience. In all cases you will be able to continue to use our product if you decide not to grant us access to information in the second category.

We will be clear with you about how and when we might share information.

In some contexts, we will share certain information. For example, like most services, if you sign up for FantasyRules through a third party like Facebook or a mobile provider, we share some information with them and they share some information with us in order to enable and verify your account.

We hope this helps you to understand our privacy commitments to you. Now, the details await you below, but please remember that this Introduction is part of the Privacy Policy itself — it’s our promise to you. If you ever have any questions or concerns, then please let us know at

Throughout this Privacy Policy we refer to the FantasyRules Service or the Service. These terms are defined in our Terms and Condition of Use   (the “Terms and Conditions of Use”).

2 Key highlights of what you’re consenting to

By using or interacting with the Service, you are consenting to:

  1. the use of cookies and other technologies;
  2. the collection, use, sharing, and other processing of your information, including for advertising-related purposes and the public availability of your information and the controls over such information.
  3. In each case, you consent to the processing of data by the entities described in this Privacy Policy, indicated at the bottom of this document (collectively, “FantasyRules”, “we”, “us”, “our”). If you don’t agree with the terms of this Privacy Policy, then please don’t use the Service.

3 The information we collect

We may collect and store the following information—

3.1 Registration data

When you sign up for the Service, we will  ask you for information such as your yahoo credentials, username, password, email address, date of birth, mobile number, address, postal code, and country. If you connect to the Service using credentials from a Third Party Application (as defined in the Terms and Conditions of Use) (e.g., Facebook), you authorize us to collect your authentication information, such as your username and encrypted access credentials. We may also collect other information available on or through your Third Party Application account, including, for example, your name, profile picture, country, hometown, email address, date of birth. You may also choose to voluntarily add other information to your profile, such as your picture and the name for your teams and leagues.

3.2 Usage, log data & cookies

When you use or interact with the Service, we may use a variety of technologies that collect information about how the Service is accessed and used. This information may include:

  1. such as interactions with other players;
  2. the details of the contest you send or accept and the date and time of your request;
  3. User Content (as defined in the Terms and Conditions of Use) you post to the Service including messages you send and/or receive via the Service;

  5. motion-generated or orientation-generated mobile sensor data (e.g., accelerometer or gyroscope).

You may in the future integrate your FantasyRules account with Third Party Applications. If you do, we may receive similar information related to your interactions with the Service on the Third Party Application, as well as information about your publicly available activity on the Third Party Application.

3.3 Your mobile device

We may provide features that rely on the use of additional information on your mobile device or require access to certain services on your mobile device that will enhance your experience but are not required to use the Service. (In other words, information that falls in the second category described in the Introduction to this Policy.) For example, we allow you to upload photos to your profile, connect with friends, or let you use voice commands to interact with the application. Granting us access does not mean you are granting us unlimited access to that information or that we will access specific information without your permission. To the contrary, for each type of information listed in this section, before we access this information or these features of your mobile device, we will ask for your permission. If you provide such permission, we will collect the information for the specific purposes explained at the time we ask for your permission. You do not have to give us such permission in order to use FantasyRules, and acceptance of this Privacy Policy does not mean you have granted us permission to access this information.

We may also collect some limited information, such as your postal code, mobile number, and details of your transaction history, all of which are necessary to provide the Service.
