6. Further, you agree that from time to time, upon our request, and as part of our normal security checks and procedures, you may be required to provide additional details in respect of any information you have provided us, or any activity on your Account. We shall be entitled to suspend or restrict your Account in any manner that we may deem to be appropriate, until such time as the relevant checks are completed to our satisfaction.

8. Deposits and Withdrawals from your Account
 
1. You may only participate in paid-for contests on the Service using cleared funds held in your Account.  As such, if you want to participate in a paid-for contest, you must deposit monies into your Account from an account or source of funds of which you are the account holder.  Where FanDuel identifies that you are not the rightful owner of any payment method used in connection with your Account, we reserve the right to treat any deposit into the Account as being invalid (and any winnings arising therefrom as void).  The minimum deposit amount is £10.00.
 
2. By depositing funds into your Account, you direct us and we agree to hold them, along with any winnings, for the sole and specific purpose of using them (i) to participate in paid-for contests on the Service; and (ii) settling any fees or charges that you might incur in connection with the use of our Service.  We shall be entitled to suspend or close your Account if we reasonably consider or have reason to believe that you are depositing funds without any intention to participate in paid-for contests on the Service. In such circumstances we may also report this to relevant authorities.
 
3. In addition to any other rights we may have under these Terms, if we incur any charge-backs, reversals or other charges in respect of your Account, we reserve the right to charge you for the relevant amounts incurred.  Monies deposited with us in your Account shall not attract interest.
 
4. We are required by our licence to inform players about what happens to monies which we hold on account for you, the extent to which such monies are protected in the event of insolvency, and the categorisation of such protection according to the British Gambling Commission's customer funds rating system.  Monies deposited by you to your Account will be held in a bank account and/or escrow account which will be kept separate from our company funds. The monies in your Account are protected in the event of insolvency. This meets the Gambling Commission's requirements for the segregation of customer funds at the level: medium segregation.
 
5. You may request a withdrawal of funds from your Account at any time provided that:
  • (a) all payments made into your Account have been confirmed as cleared and there is no reason to suspect that FanDuel will be subject to any monies being  charged-back, reversed or otherwise cancelled;
  • (b) all verification checks referred to in clause 7 (Verification and Money Laundering) have been completed to our satisfaction;
  • (c) there are no other conditions which may attach to or limit your ability to withdraw funds (e.g. any applicable promotion terms).
6. Where possible, all withdrawals will be processed to the payment account from which the deposits were made. Where there is a requirement to process a withdrawal to a different payment method, any such request may be subject to additional verification and security checks.
 
7. If the value of a deposit is not played through in full before a withdrawal is requested, or if the withdrawal amount requested is for less than £5.00, FanDuel reserves the right to make a charge to the player's Account to cover all reasonable costs relating to both the deposit and withdrawal.  If necessary, the value of the withdrawal request may be reduced accordingly.
 
8. FanDuel may, at any time, set off any positive balance on your Account against any amounts owed by you to FanDuel.

If it becomes apparent to FanDuel that you are resident in a country in which the use of the Service is not legal, we shall be entitled to suspend or close your Account at our sole discretion, pending further investigation, in which case any balance on the Account on the date of such closure will be refunded to you as soon as it is practicable to do so, subject to there being no legal or regulatory constraints on our doing so.

9. Eligibility
 
1. By depositing money or entering a contest, you are representing and warranting that:
  • (a) when entering any contest that awards prizes, you are not an employee, shareholder, director, agent, representative or operator of another daily fantasy site that charges entrance fees or offers cash prizes;
  • (b) you do not, by virtue of affiliation with another daily fantasy site or otherwise, have access to the site’s pre-release non-public confidential data about contest-related information.
2. If you do not meet the eligibility requirements of this section, then you are not authorised to use the Service. FanDuel may require you to provide proof that you are eligible to participate according to this section prior to receiving a prize. This includes by requesting that you supply us with any reasonably required verification information and could involve the completion of an affidavit of eligibility in certain circumstances. You must provide any such information or complete such an affidavit if FanDuel requests that you do so and failing to do so within 5 days of FanDuel making such a request entitles, FanDuel to otherwise determine that you do not meet the eligibility requirements of this section and, in addition to any rights that FanDuel may have in law or equity,
 
3. FanDuel reserves the right to suspend or terminate your Account and withhold or revoke the award of any prizes associated with your Account. In such a situation, FanDuel may pay out any withheld or revoked prizes to the other entrants in the relevant contest in a manner consistent with the prize structure of the contest, to be precisely determined by FanDuel in its sole discretion.  
 
4. FanDuel employees may use the Service for the purpose of testing the user experience, but may not withdraw money or prizes. FanDuel consultants or promoters of the Service may play in contests without such limitation, but only if (i) their arrangement with FanDuel does not permit them to have any access to non-public Service data or any other data not made available to all players on the Service and (ii) they do not receive any other advantages in their play on the Service.
 
5. Employees or operators of other daily fantasy sites that charge entry fees or offer cash prizes, including but not limited to DraftKings, Sportsline.com, and Yahoo, and individuals who, by virtue of affiliation with another daily fantasy site, have access to the site’s pre-release non-public confidential data about game-related information, may not enter any contests in which a real money prize is awarded. If such person enters a FanDuel contest that awards prizes, FanDuel will disqualify the entry, will not award a prize, and may report such person’s violation of this provision to the daily fantasy site for which the entrant is employed by, operates or is affiliated with.
 
6. Additionally, FanDuel may maintain information about the entrant sufficient to assist FanDuel in blocking the player from entering future FanDuel contests, unless and until FanDuel determines, in its sole discretion, that the entrant is no longer an employee or operator of another daily fantasy site or no longer has access to pre-release non-public confidential data about game-related information by virtue of affiliation with a daily fantasy site.
 
7. Sportspersons, coaches and other team management, team support personnel (e.g. without limitation, team physicians) and team owners may not participate in any FanDuel contests in the sport or sports with which they are associated.  Team owners, referees, league employees, sports commissioners and other individuals who through an ownership interest or game-related employment can influence the gameplay are likewise ineligible.
 
8. FanDuel is not affiliated with or sponsored by the National Football League, the National Hockey League or Major League Baseball.

11. Errors
 
1. There may be circumstances which arise which result in the Service not running as originally planned ("Errors").  Such Errors may include, without limitation, if the Sites becomes corrupted or do not allow the proper usage and processing of entries in accordance with the rules, or if infection by a computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorised intervention, actions by entrants, fraud, technical failures, inadvertent errors by us (as further described at 11.2), or any other causes of any kind, in the sole opinion of FanDuel corrupts or affects the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of the Service (whether as a result of a Prohibited Practice or otherwise).  
 
2. For the purposes of clause 11.1, an inadvertent error by us will include, without limitation:
  • (a) where we have continued to allow entries into a contest which should have been suspended (e.g. where the relevant event had already started) or had already finished;

12. Game Rules

Contests

1. Players will be given the opportunity to view the various fantasy sports contests available for entry on the Service.  Each contest will be governed by the Rules and Scoring system published on the Service.  The Rules and Scoring System form part of these Terms of Use and are available by clicking here.  FanDuel reserves the right to alter, amend or supplement the Rules and Scoring system at any time and in its absolute discretion.  FanDuel shall not be liable for any loss or damage that may result of any such change to the Rules and Scoring system.  Players will be notified in advance of material changes to the Rules and Scoring system before they come into effect in accordance with clause 2.

2. Winners are determined by the criteria stated in each contest's Rules and Scoring system. For each contest, winners are determined by the individuals who use their skill and knowledge of relevant professional sports information and fantasy sports rules to accumulate the most fantasy points.

3. Fantasy points are accumulated through the performance of individual sportspersons across multiple sports events.


Entry fees

4. Each FanDuel contest has an entry fee listed in GBP. When you opt to participate in a contest, that amount will be debited from your Account. Then, follow the links and instructions provided for entry.


Contest Term

5. FanDuel offers contests for multiple professional sports events generally taking place on a single day or at most a week.

6. FanDuel reserves the right to cancel contests, in our sole discretion, without any restrictions.


Prizes

7. After each contest ends, the tentative winners are announced (generally by the following day) but remain subject to final verification. The players in each contest who accumulate the most fantasy points and comply with eligibility requirements and applicable rules will win prizes as set out in the posted contest details. Prizes are added to the player's Account balance. In the event of a tie, the prize is divided evenly between the tied players, unless otherwise specified.

8. FanDuel offers a number of different types of contests. For each contest, we announce the entry fees and prizes in advance on the contest page. For a summary of entry fees and prizes for currently open contests please login and visit the main contest page.

9. Prize calculations are based on the results as of the time when final scoring is tabulated by FanDuel.

10. Once winners are initially announced by FanDuel, the scoring results will not be changed in light of official adjustments made by the professional leagues, though we reserve the right to make adjustments based on errors or irregularities in the transmission of information to us from our stats provider or in our calculation of results. We also may make adjustments in the event of noncompliance with the Terms. FanDuel has no obligation to delay the awarding of a prize in anticipation of any adjustment, and we reserve the right to reverse payments in the event of any adjustment. You agree to cooperate with our efforts to reverse payments.

11. No substitution or transfer of a prize is permitted. All taxes associated with the receipt or use of any prize are the sole responsibility of the winner. In the event that the awarding of any prizes to winners of the Contest is challenged by any legal authority, FanDuel reserves the right in its sole discretion to determine whether or not to award or adjust such prizes. In all disputes arising out of the determination of the winner of any contests, FanDuel is the sole judge and its actions are final and binding.
