Your privacy is important to us.

This notice does not apply to websites, applications or services that do not display or link to this statement or that display or link to different privacy statements.
Refer-a-Friend. Our Services may enable you to invite your friends to join in the fun. We enable users to invite friends in two ways:
Find-a-Friend. Our Services may enable you to invite your friends who have an Account to join a Contest. In order to invite friends with Accounts to join a Contest, you may either enter (1) your friend’s username associated with their account to find and locate them or (2) in the event you are using our Application, use our contact importer tool to import and search through your contacts (including contacts in your address book) to match those of your friends who are also registered users of the Services. With your permission, we will access your address book, and import your contacts’ names, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, image, geographic location and any other information associated with your contact to facilitate automatic connection with your friends.
We may supplement the information we have about you with information received from other sources including from our pages on Social Networking Sites, the Social Networking Sites themselves, and from commercially available sources (e.g., data brokers and public databases). The information we receive may include demographic data such as age, gender and income level, your interests and purchase data and other information that is necessary or useful to assist our marketing efforts or for user verification, authentication, fraud detection or to comply with regulatory requirements.
General Use. In general, the personal information you submit to us is used either to respond to the requests you make, or to aid us in serving you better. We use your personal information in the following ways:
User Feedback. We may post user feedback on the Website from time to time. We will share your feedback with your first name and last initial only.

If you make any comments on a blog or forum associated with the Website, you should be aware that any personal information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by other users of the forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these blogs and forums.
Creation of Anonymous Data. We may create anonymized data (data that is not reasonably associated with or linked to any data that would reasonably be expected to allow someone to identify you or contact you) from personal information by excluding information (such as your name) that makes the data personally identifiable to you. We use this anonymized data to analyse request and usage patterns so that we may enhance the content of our Services and improve Website navigation. We reserve the right to use anonymized data for any purpose and disclose anonymized data to third parties for any reason.

DraftKings accepts all major credit/debit cards including Visa and MasterCard
**You may only deposit funds into your DraftKings account with a payment method registered in your name**
Any user that wishes to have their deposit limit increased must send images of the following to firstname.lastname@example.org:
Go to your My Account page, click on “Withdrawal” on the left hand side of the page and follow the instructions to submit your request!
Withdrawal requests must first be approved by DraftKings, after which they will be credited to the same credit/debit card or method of payment used to deposit money onto the Website dating back three months in chronological order. Users can only withdraw to a different credit/debit card or payment method not already used to make a deposit after the total amount of the previous deposit has already been released to the credit/debit card(s) or payment method(s) used for the deposit(s).
*In the event that you have cancelled your credit/debit card used to deposit on DraftKings, contact our customer service team before requesting to withdraw funds.
Our Accounting Department processes withdrawals Monday - Friday from 9 AM-5 PM. Any withdrawal requests that come in after 5 PM on Friday will be processed in the order that they were received, starting the following Monday. Once our Accounting Department processes your withdrawal request (you'll receive a confirmation email), it typically takes anywhere from two-to-eight business days for your funds to appear in your account. If you request a cheque it can take two-to-three weeks for delivery.
Your deposit bonus will be released in increments of £1 for every 100 Frequent Player Points (FPP’s) that you have earned. FPP’s are accrued when taking part in any paid contest on DraftKings. You don’t receive FPP’s when playing free contests. You can’t directly access your deposit bonus to enter contests. You must release it £1.00 at a time by participating in our contests. The deposit bonus is a rewards-based scheme that encourages users to play frequently in our contests.
Frequent Player Points (FPPs) are points you earn upon the start of every paid contest you enter on DraftKings.co.uk, whether you win or lose. FPPs awarded vary per contest type (displayed on the Draft page) and are not earned for playing in FREE ENTRY games. The more contests you join and money you spend, the more FPPs you earn.
All deposit bonuses have a duration of four months from the date of the initial deposit. If your deposit bonus is set to expire before you have been able to use the entire amount, please contact our customer support team.
If you are a UK resident you do not have to pay taxes in the UK on your winnings.
DraftKings customer service personnel undergo responsible gaming awareness training and are available to assist you at any time.
Customers have a range of options to help them manage their gaming activity, including:
Please refer to our Responsible Gaming page for more detailed information.
If you would like to learn more or are concerned that gaming is adversely affecting you, please contact a responsible gaming charity such as GamCare
DraftKings employees are not allowed to participate in public contests on the DraftKings site.
We have enlisted the help of a legal team from Greenberg Traurig, led by former United States Attorney John Pappalardo, to conduct a thorough review to help strengthen our existing policies and controls, and ensure a level-playing field.
DraftKings has implemented a policy that prohibits the employees of other DFS sites playing in any DraftKings contests that are open to the public.
DraftKings analysts/pros are contracted media professionals and have no access to any DraftKings data systems. Because of this, they can still play on the site.
DraftKings has implemented a policy permanently prohibiting all DraftKings employees from participating in public contests on other DFS sites.
We will take strong and immediate action based on the specific circumstances. We currently have no evidence that this has occurred.
