Terms of Use

The FNQ app and website are not in anyway associated with Apple Inc. Apple is not involved in any way with the FNQ games or sweepstakes or prizes.

The FNQ mobile application (the “App”) is made available by First Group Enterprises Ltd, a company registered in England with Company No 05705759 whose registered address 58 Southwark Bridge Road, London, SE1 0AS (“us”, “we” or “our”).

The purpose of the App is to allow you to play “FNQ” – the live fun news quiz for kids! FNQ is a series of shows streamed live at set times. Each FNQ show (a “Show”) consists of a 12 question news trivia game (a “ Game”). You can play as many Games as you want, or just watch Shows. There are points to win for each Game, but you can also accumulate leaderboard points. The FNQ weekly leaderboard (the “Leaderboard”) gives you the opportunity to compete with your friends so the more Games you play, the better your chances at climbing the Leaderboard. We may also award prizes or other benefits to winners of bonus questions during some games.
