Data & Privacy — Principles & Policy
At Futnut Ltd (Futnut), your privacy is a priority. We do our best to treat your information with the utmost care & respect.
We believe in transparency
We’re not here to make a quick advertising buck
Our goal is to build a platform that augments your football experience, by enabling you to prove your knowledge & passion for the game in a fun & safe way. We believe that if we do this successfully we won’t need to target customers with advertising & all that that entails. That’s not to say we won’t include advertising in the future if we believe this will help our users.
You choose how to identify yourself
When you register on Futnut, you can use your own name or an alias. For example, you can register under your own name via Gmail / Facebook / Apple ID or use an alias, which can be activated from within your profile page (or indeed via a funky Twitter handle). All we ask is that you keep it clean.
You control your information
You have the right to control your information. That’s why we provide easy ways to access and update your information and to delete your account & information altogether. If you wish to edit, update or delete your account details, navigate to the My Account view & click on the 3 dots in the top right-hand corner of the screen. If you have any specific questions about your data, contact us.
It’s important to keep in mind that other players can always take a screenshot, or save things using a third-party app. Bear this in mind when posting prediction comment!

When you use our services, you’ll share some information with us. We want to be totally transparent about the information we collect, how we use it, whom we share it with, and the controls we give you to access, update & delete your information. Of course, if you still have questions about anything relating to data, privacy or GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), contact us.
How we gather information
First, we learn about you when you use our service. So, while you may not tell us you’re a Premier League fan, if you’re always making predictions on this league it’s a safe guess. We track how you & other players use the site to understand if it is working well and to identify ways to improve our services. We do not currently gather any information on you for the purpose of advertising & do not share any of your personal data with any third parties. When you download the Futnut app & log in, we capture some information about you such as your name/username, email address & profile image. Email is not captured for Twitter logins & is only captured for Apple ID logins if allowed by you. We keep a record of predictions you make. Finally, we use Google Analytics to better understand how users interact with the app. This data is anonymised meaning it is associated with IDs & not personal identifiable information or PII.
How we share information
The only information we share about you is information that you make publicly We use your information as follows; 1. Email: to identify you & link you to your account. We also use your email to occasionally send you emails. You can unsubscribe at any time. 2. Name/username: displayed on your profile. You can use an alias as described above. 3. Profile image: displayed on your profile. You can replace the image in the app if you wish. 4. Predictions: to run prediction competitions & to generate your performance statistics. 5. Google Analytics: to understand how users interact with the app, to track metrics & to aid decision-making.

How we share information
1. Your profile information is viewable by other users of the app — username, profile image & predictions & statistics. 2. On occasion, your profile name may appear in social media images (app screenshots) when we do competition updates. 3. Google Analytics tracks how you use the app in terms of features used, session duration etc. This is done using a unique ID, not information that would enable you to be identified personally. 4. We do not currently offer in-app advertising & therefore do not share any of your personal data with third parties involved in this activity.
How we store information
We store your account/profile until you ask us to delete it. We also store information relating to predictions you make as well as information relating to your performance & statistics.
How you control your information
You can manage your account information in the My Account section of the app — including things like your subscriptions & account data. Still can’t find what you’re looking for? Contact us @ email@example.com
