1. Information You Give to Us

Certain information is required when creating an account to use our Services on our mobile application, such as your name, email address, city, country, role, occupation, website, photo, and password.  You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you may not be able to register for the Services or take advantage of some features of the Services.

We may also ask you for, or you may choose to provide, additional information, such as keywords or areas of interest that will be associated with your Services account and public profile.

You may provide other information directly to us. By way of example only, we may collect information when you fill out a form, update your account, interact with the Services, communicate with us via third-party social media sites, request customer support, provide feedback, or otherwise communicate with us.

2. Information We Obtain from Your Use of Our Services

We collect information about your interaction with the Services, such as creating or logging into your account, or opening or interacting with the Services on Your mobile device.

This may include details of how you used our Services and your internet protocol address.  We may also collect and process information about your location if you provide it to us (for example, we may ask you to enter your city and country). The information we collect automatically is statistical data and may or may not include Personal Information, but we may maintain it or associate it with Personal Information we collect in other ways or receive from third parties.

When using our Services, we or our service provider may collect your unique device ID. We may use such information for internal purposes and to provide you a better experience, such as to troubleshoot application problems you may experience.

You may learn more about opt out of any anonymous device ID collection via the privacy settings available within your mobile device.

We collect information about your use of the Services, including access times, pages viewed, user and content interactions and other information about your interactions with our Services, as well as with other Users across our Services. 

3. Cookies and Similar Technologies

We and our partners use various technologies to collect and store information when you use the Services, and this may include technologies to identify your browser or device. We also use these technologies to collect and store information when you interact with users and services from our partners. Our third party analytics partners include Microsoft’s App Center and similar third party analytics partners. Note that we do not use cookies, web beacons or Mobile Device Identifiers/SDKs, and we, along with our third-party analytics partners, do not sell Personal Information to any third-parties.

  • Inform you about Services and products available from Futurpreneur and the G20 YEA;

Our Legal Basis for Collecting Personal Information

Whenever we collect Personal Information from you, we may do so on the following legal bases:

  • With Your consent to such collection and use;

  • Out of necessity for the performance of an agreement between us and you, such as your agreement to use our Services or your request for Services;

  • Our legitimate business interests.

Provided that, in each circumstance, we will weigh the necessity of our processing for the purpose against your privacy and confidentiality interests, including taking into account your reasonable expectations, the impact of processing, and any safeguards which are or could be put in place. In all circumstances, we will limit such processing for our legitimate business interest to what is necessary for its purposes.

Information We Share

We do not share Personal Information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of Futurpreneur unless one of the following circumstances applies:

With Your Consent
We will share Personal Information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Futurpreneur when we have your consent to do so.

With Others Using The Service 
Any content posted to your User profile on the Services is public and, as a result, can be seen by anyone on our Services, if they have an account.  Your full name is publicly displayed when you interact with the Services, such as when you send a chat message using a third party platform to another user. 


For External Processing 

We provide Personal Information to our affiliates or other trusted businesses or partners to process it for us, based on our instructions and in compliance with our Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures. These third parties include marketing partners, corporate sponsors or potential corporate sponsors, App development service providers, and similar partners. It is our policy to only share Personal Information with contractors, service providers, technology partners, and other third parties who are bound by contractual obligations to keep Personal Information confidential and use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them.


For Legal Reasons 

We will share Personal Information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Futurpreneur if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to: (a) meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request, (b) enforce applicable Terms, including investigation of potential violations, (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address suspected, alleged, or actual fraud, security or technical issues, and (d) protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Futurpreneur, our Users or the public as required or permitted by law.

We attempt to notify Users about legal demands for their Personal Information when appropriate in our judgment, unless prohibited by law or court order, when safety is at issue, or when the request is an emergency. We may dispute such demands when we believe, in our discretion, that the requests are overbroad, vague or lack proper authority, but we do not promise to challenge every demand.


Business Transfers

If we establish a new related entity, are acquired by or merged with another organization, are engaged in negotiations with a third party regarding an acquisition or transfer, or if substantially all of our assets are transferred to another organization, Personal Information about our Users is often a transferred business asset.  In the event that Futurpreneur itself or substantially all of our assets are acquired, Personal Information about our Users may be one of the transferred assets.


Non-Personal and Aggregate Services Use Information

Futurpreneur may compile and share your information in aggregated form (i.e., in a manner that would not personally identify you) or in de-identified form so that it cannot reasonably be used to identify an individual (“De-Identified Information”).


Your Failure to Provide Personal Information

 Your provision of Personal Information is required to use certain parts of our Services.  If you fail to provide such Personal Information, you may not be able to access and use our Services or parts of our Services.


Our Retention of Your Personal Information

We may retain your Personal Information for a period of time consistent with the original purpose for collection.  For example, we keep your Personal Information for no longer than reasonably necessary for your use of our programs and Services and for a reasonable period of time afterward. We also may retain your Personal Information during the period of time needed for us to pursue our legitimate business interests, conduct audits, comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.

We retain your Personal Information even after your relationship with us ends if reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations (including law enforcement requests), meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, maintain security, prevent fraud and abuse, enforce our Terms, or fulfill your request to “unsubscribe” from further messages from us. We will retain de-personalized information after your account has been closed.


Your Choices and Accessing, Updating or Deleting Your Personal Information

Subject to applicable law, you may obtain a copy of Personal Information we maintain about you or you may update or correct inaccuracies in that information by contacting us. To help protect your privacy and maintain security, we will take steps to verify your identity before granting you access to the information and may decide, in our discretion, not to grant access if we are unable to confirm your identity. In addition, if you believe that Personal Information we maintain about you is inaccurate, subject to applicable law, you may have the right to request that we correct or amend the information by contacting us as indicated in the How to Contact Us section below.

You may update or correct information about yourself by making changes to your profile by emailing us at  If you completely delete all such information, then your account may become deactivated.  We may retain an archived copy of your records as required by law, to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve disputes, to enforce our agreements or for other legitimate business purposes.

By providing an email address, you agree that we may contact you in the event of a change in this Privacy Policy.


Third Party Links

The Services may contain links to web pages operated by parties other than Futurpreneur or the G20 YEA. We do not control such websites and are not responsible for their contents or the privacy policies or other practices of such websites. Our inclusion of links to such websites does not imply any endorsement of the material on such websites or any association with their operators. Further, it is up to the User to take precautions to ensure that whatever links the User selects or software the User downloads (whether from this Services or other websites) is free of such items as viruses, worms, trojan horses, defects and other items of a destructive nature. These websites and services may have their own privacy policies, which the User will be subject to upon linking to the third party's website. Futurpreneur strongly recommends that each User review the third party's terms and policies.

How We Protect Personal Information

Futurpreneur maintains administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the User's Personal Information and information against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use.  We use commercially reasonable security measures such as encryption, firewalls, and Secure Socket Layer software (SSL) or hypertext transfer protocol secure (HTTPS) to protect Personal Information. 

Even so, despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect, impenetrable, or 100% secure. We cannot ensure, and do not warrant or guarantee, that the information you transmit to us will remain secure, nor do we guarantee that this information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered, destroyed or used in an unauthorized manner. These are the risks of being online and conducting business online.

Of course, if we learn of a security breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. We may also post a notice on our Services if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive a notice of a security breach in writing. If you have any questions about the security of your information, please contact us .



The Services are not intended for use by children.  We do not intentionally gather Personal Information about visitors who are under the age of 13.  If a child has provided us with Personal Information, a parent or guardian of that child may contact us to have the information deleted from our records.


Direct Marketing and “Do Not Track” Signals

The G20 YEA App does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third party sites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such sites, your browser may include controls to block and delete cookies, web beacons and similar technologies, to allow you to opt out of data collection through those technologies.

Futurpreneur does not disclose personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.


Jurisdiction & Governing Law

Futurpreneur is based in Canada and the information we collect is governed by Canadian law. By accessing or using the Services or otherwise providing information to us, you consent to the processing and transfer of information in and to Canada, and to processing of related data in Canada and by our third party data hosting providers in the United States. These data transfers are performed only for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy and are necessary to provide the Services to you globally.  For EEA visitors, please read the “EU VISITORS” section below. 

This Privacy Policy is intended to cover collection of information on our Services from residents of Canada. The data protection and other laws of Canada might not be as comprehensive as those in your country. Where permitted by applicable law, we may transfer the personal data we collect about you to other jurisdictions other than where you reside that may not be deemed to provide the same level of data protection as your home country for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy.

By visiting or using our Services in any way, you acknowledge and agree that your information may be transferred to our facilities and those third parties with whom we share it as described in this Privacy Policy, regardless of the laws of your country of residence. 

To the extent the laws of another jurisdiction apply to your data or use of our Services, we will comply with such laws, as set out below.


EU Visitors

If you are an EU citizen or UK citizen, you may have additional rights under the EU General Data Protection Regulation or the UK-GDPR (collectively, the “GDPR”) with respect to your Personal Data, as outlined below. For this section, we use the terms “Personal Data” and “processing” as they are defined in the GDPR, but “Personal Data” generally means information that can be used to individually identify a person, and “processing” generally covers actions that can be performed in connection with data such as collection, use, storage and disclosure. We will be the controller of your Personal Data processed in connection with the Services. If you have any questions about this section or whether any of the following applies to you, please contact us using our privacy contact form.

The legal bases for which we collect and use the information described above depends on what the information is and why we collected it. The four bases upon which we rely include:

  • Contract. This means we need the information to perform our contracted Services with you. When we process data due to contractual necessity, failure to provide such Personal Data will result in your inability to use some or all portions of the Services that require that data.

  • Legitimate Interests. This means we have a legitimate interest that does not outweigh your privacy rights. When we collect and process information based on our legitimate interests, we consider how we can accomplish what we need to in a way that is the least obtrusive on your privacy.

  • Legal Obligation. We may need to use your personal information to comply with a law enforcement preservation request, subpoena, or other legal process or to protect the rights of other users.

  • Consent. If we have no other legal basis for collecting or using your information, we will ask you for consent for a specific purpose. If we do, you have the right to withdraw consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not apply to any processing conducted in reliance on lawful processing bases other than consent.

In addition to other rights detailed in the policy (such as requesting deletion, correction or updating of your personal information), EU and UK citizens have certain rights regarding your personal information, including:

  • Right to Object or Restrict Processing.  You have the right to object to or restrict our use of your personal information for direct marketing purposes or under certain circumstances when the legal bases for using your information is based upon our legitimate interest. If you wish to object to our use of your information, you can send us a request to delete your account. 

  • Right to Access or Erasure.  You have the right to have your personal data erased and no longer processed. You also have the right to access the Personal Data we have collected about you.  You can send us a request to delete your account or access your information.  Upon receiving the request, we will make a reasonable effort to delete your personal information from the Service and from our internal network within a reasonable period of time as long as we are not obligated to preserve your information due to things like law enforcement preservation requests, subpoenas, investigations, litigation, or otherwise meet any of our other legal obligations. We may also retain depersonalized information after deletion.

  • Withdrawal of Consent. If we are processing your Personal Data based on your consent (as indicated at the time of collection of such data), you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Please note, however, that if you exercise this right, you may have to then provide express consent on a case-by-case basis for the use or disclosure of certain of your Personal Data if such use or disclosure is necessary to enable you to utilize some or all of the Services. 

  • Data Portability.  You can exercise your right to export your personal data.

  • File a Complaint. You have the right to complain to the data protection authority located in your Member State. To find contact details, click here.

As explained above, personal data collected in the EU or UK may be transferred to, and/or stored at, a destination outside of the EU and/or UK and processed by employees operating outside of the EU and/or UK who work for us, one of our business partners, or service providers. We have implemented sufficient GDPR compliant procedures to secure the transfer of your personal data to the United States. We utilize standard contract clauses, rely on the European Commission’s adequacy decisions about certain countries, as applicable, and obtain your consent for these data transfers to the United States.
