Privacy Policy

Visitors to the site

The Great British Public Toilet Map uses a cookieless approach to gather anonymous data such as which pages are viewed, what time the visit occurred, and which site referred the visitor to the web page etc.

Public Convenience Ltd also notes and saves information such as time of day, browser type and content requested. That information is used to provide more relevant services to users.

We will not associate any data gathered from this site through navigation and with any personally identifying information from any source. We may also log Internet Protocol (IP) address (but nothing that directly identifies visitors) in order to receive and send the required information over the internet.

Contributors to The Great British Public Toilet Map website are asked to sign-in via the Auth0 platform using their email address. This helps us to share data on the quantity and spread of contributions to the site which helps show how the community value the project, to improve our interfaces for our users, to protect our dataset from misuse and to recognise contributions from a user if that user is adding unsuitable content, whether intentionally or inadvertently.

A full list of a contributor’s activities will only be accessible to Public Convenience Ltd for moderating the dataset. A contributor’s full email address will never be disclosed or shared and is only visible to Public Convenience Ltd.
