Privacy Policy

Numerai’s privacy policy protects your Personally Identifiable Information.

When, What, How?

We collect personal information when you register to compete in Tournaments.

Registration requires express permission to send messages to your email address, and to display your choice of name (personal, company, or fictitious) on our Leaderboard.

We never collect a physical address, phone number, social security number, or personal identification number. We do not receive payments, and will never ask for a credit card, debit card, bank account, or financial information.

We may use your email address to communicate tournament rules and results, change Terms of Use, share Numerai news, or suggest voluntary arrangements through your choice of payment systems to pay any prize you might win.

We use Google Analytics to collect information on Site traffic over time. We adhere to Google Analytic's Terms of Service. These prohibit sending your personal information to Google.

We do not offer third party products or services.

We may offer you links to third party payment systems for your own investigation; but using these would be at your own risk.

We do not advertise, nor sell information with advertisers.

We don’t currently use vulnerability or malware scanning. Some of our back-end infrastructure vendors may.

Users can visit our site anonymously. Our site is programmed to comply with Do Not Track settings on many popular web browsers.
