Your voice and trust is vital to the Project. We appreciate that you are sharing a part of yourself with your contributions. That’s why we place a great emphasis on giving you the ability to control, manage and edit your content as and when you choose.
From the content that is submitted to the site, we may in future want to create short films or other media that we can share. We will only use content that is live on the site at the time of production. If you’ve removed your public content by then, we won’t and can’t use it.
We will never pass your private information (specifically your contact details) to an independent third party. Any additional information you have provided (such as education level and whether you have children or not) may be used anonymously and only in order to improve our understanding of perception around the world. This work – whether it is in the form of case studies, research papers or films – will always be led by the What I See Project.

As part of the principal purpose of the website – an improved understanding of individual perspective – we may create content that uses your contributions to the project alongside those of other people. We will only use the information that you have permitted to be ‘public’ on your account settings for this work on an individual basis. Optional information you have provided, such as education level and whether you have children or not, will only be used on an aggregated and anonymised basis.
Non-Personal Information We may collect non-identifying and aggregate information to better design the Website.

Additionally, We automatically track certain information about your visit to the Website. This information may include your domain name and IP address, your browser version, your operating system, the URL from which you visited the Website, the pages you visit within the Website, and the URL to which you go upon leaving the Website (together “Non-Personal Information”).
