App Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

This privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) explains Our Place in Space (“OPIS”, “we”, “us” or “our”) policies in relation to Personal Information collected from users of the OPIS Augmented Reality (AR) app.

We take the privacy of users of the OPIS AR app seriously. We will obtain, retain and process information (including your personal and sensitive data) in accordance with the applicable law. We respect your right to privacy and we understand that, as a user of the OPIS AR app you will not share any personal information.

This Privacy Policy forms part of the conditions of use of the OPIS AR app, which can be found at ourplaceinspace.earth.

What Information Do We Collect?

Users will be asked to give location permissions; this is critical to the functionality of the app to allow users to walk the solar system trail. The majority of use cases will require background location, including implementation of geofencing for the physical solar system trail, collection of space souvenirs and viewing solar system content.

Location information will not be stored or used by third parties.

The app does not use third party services that may collect information used to identify you.

Please note that while we do not explicitly collect personal information, we will treat any information held in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and all applicable laws and regulations governing the protection and privacy of personal information.

Children's Privacy

We do not collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. In the case we discover that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we immediately delete this from our servers. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with personal information, please contact us so that we will be able to take necessary actions.

Changes to our Policy

We reserve the right to make changes to this Privacy Policy at any time with or without prior notice by posting new terms on the ourplaceinspace.earth website. We will only use information in accordance with the Privacy Policy under which the information was collected. If you regularly use the OPIS app you should continue to check this Privacy Policy for updates and amendments, as you will be deemed to have accepted the changes if you continue to use the OPIS app after any changes have been posted.

We will be happy to answer any inquiries from you regarding this Privacy Policy, the personal data we hold about you or the use we make of it. If you have any queries, comments, or if you wish to correct or update the data we hold about you, please email us at info@ourplaceinspace.earth
