The purpose of the privacy policy is to inform you as a user of One Part Per Million about what information we collect when you visit the service, how we use the information, whether the information is disclosed and the ways in which we protect users' privacy.

We want you to feel secure when using the website and associated services. We are committed to respecting your privacy. Below we give an overview of how we do that.

How do we use your information?

We analyse information to see what is most effective about our website and associated services to help us identify ways to improve it and to make it more effective. We may also use information for other purposes, which we would describe to you at the point when we collect the information.

What information do we collect when you use One Part Per Million? 

We collect information indirectly and directly.

When you use One Part Per Million (, we use technology to collect information indirectly - such as your internet address. This is commonplace across all internet services to enable the investigation of issues such as malicious use. This information is then kept in our internet access logs.

We collect information directly from you in a number of ways. One way is by using cookies. Cookies are small files of information that save and retrieve information about your visit to our site, such as how you entered our site, how you navigated through the site and what information was of interest to you. This information is collected for a number of reasons, for example, to help develop the website and associated services.

The cookies we use identify you merely as a number. If you are uncomfortable about the use of cookies, you can disable them by changing the settings in the preferences or options menu in your internet browser. However, disabling cookies may affect our ability to provide services to you; if certain cookies are disabled you may not be able to access the service.

We also collect information when you give it to us. When we collect this type of information, we will notify you as to why we are asking for information and how this information will be used. It is completely up to you whether you provide it, but not providing information may affect our ability to provide services to you.

The social media bookmarking sites that One Part Per Million links to are third-party sites and One Part Per Million does control the way these sites use your information. If you choose to access these sites using the links provided, the operators of these sites may collect information from you that may be used by them in accordance with their privacy policies, which may differ from ours.

One Part Per Million uses Google Maps APIs to provide some location-based information. You should read the Google privacy policy to understand how this affects you. 

How long do we hold this information? 

We will hold the information for as long as we are providing the service as we may need to use it for statistical analysis.

Will we disclose your information to, or share it with, other organisations? 

We do not share data with other organisations unless the law permits us to do so. We do not sell individuals’ information. We will share it only with our authorised Data Processors, who must act at all times on our instructions as the Data Controller under the Data Protection Act 1998. Before you submit any information, we will notify you as to why we are asking for specific information and it is up to you whether you provide it.

We may give you access to your information

You are entitled to know whether we hold information about you and, if we do, to have access to that information and require it to be corrected if it is inaccurate.

Your data is kept under secure conditions

We take appropriate steps to maintain the security of your data on our service. The open nature of the internet means that data may flow over networks without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended. Our intention is that this should not happen and we take measures to ensure that it does not.
