Privacy and cookies policy
Note: We do not pass your contact details or any other information about you as an individual to third parties of any kind (unless requested by you to do so, or unless required to do so by law), as detailed below.
The information we collect
We also receive your email address if you choose to register for our newsletter.
Why we collect it
We collect information about you so that we can personalise your use of the website hereafter.
We also collect aggregated information about every single link and page on the Donut website, so we can measure the website's performance. This allows us to create more of the pages that users like and to remove unused content. It also allows Atom to attract sponsorship for each section of the Donut website.
Looking ahead, if you subscribe to the Donut e-newsletters you will, at a later date, be able to request additional content on particular topics. (This preference functionality will increase over time, as Atom provides a wider and deeper set of content to choose from.) You may update your contact preferences, or opt out of receiving the e-newsletter, at any time.
Who we disclose it to
We will only pass on information about you as an individual (as opposed to aggregated information) to third parties to enable us to perform services requested by you or with your prior consent.
In certain circumstances we may need to disclose information about you if you breach the terms and conditions of the website. We may also disclose or access your account if required to do so by law.
Atom is registered with the Information Commissioner in the UK as a 'data controller' in accordance with the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998. Further details of the registration are available at www.ico.gov.uk.
Keeping information about you secure is very important to us. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information which you send to us, and you do so at your own risk.
Ask a question feature
Some pages on the Donut website have a form that enables you to ask a question. If you choose to use this option, you agree to your data being shared with the named third parties that provide the answers. We will not pass your data to anyone other than the organisations involved in providing this service to you.
If you have any questions concerning anything on this page, please contact
