By using our Platform, you confirm that you accept these terms of use and that you agree to comply with them. These terms also apply when you use any of the services we offer but will still apply to you if you use the Platform but do not use these services.

If you do not agree to these terms, you must not use our Platform. We recommend that you print a copy of these terms for future reference.

We amend these terms from time to time. Every time you wish to use the Platform, please check these Terms to ensure you understand the terms that apply at that time. These terms were most recently updated on 28 November 2018.

Our Platform

The Platform is made available free of charge. We do not guarantee that our Platform, or any content on it, will always be available or be uninterrupted. We may suspend or withdraw or restrict the availability of all or any part of our Platform for business and operational reasons. We will try to give you reasonable notice of any suspension or withdrawal and you acknowledge that we will not be liable to you in any such case.

You are also responsible for ensuring that all persons who access our Platform through your internet connection are aware of these terms of use and other applicable terms and conditions, and that they comply with them.

We may update and change our Platform from time to time to reflect changes to our services, our users' needs and our business priorities.

Our Mission

We believe that the data you generate online belongs to you - and that you are entitled to benefit from it right now.

In order to achieve this, we share with you certain observations about your data, which we call OneZero-me Scores. These observations can be fun facts about your personality or behaviour. They can also provide what we believe to be valuable information to help you to establish trust with third parties. This includes, for example, verifying that you are a genuine person with an active online presence.

We enable you to share these Scores with third parties in a return for an improved service. This can be, for example, a discount or a free trial. We do so in a secure way - while keeping your private raw data safe.

OneZero-me Scores

Our OneZero-me Scores aim to provide you with valuable insights based on the data you shared with us.

It is important for us to be transparent about how we derived the OneZero-me Scores. For each OneZero-me Score we will share with you: (a) the data used to compute it (b) an explanation about the method we used and (c) if relevant, ways of improving the accuracy of the observation.

We follow industry standard methods to ensure the relevance of our OneZero-me Scores, however we cannot guarantee that they will be precise for everyone. You acknowledge that:

  • The nature of some of these OneZero-me Scores is statistical, meaning that they will not be correct for everyone;
  • We constantly update our algorithms based on new data. This means that while we do not expect our OneZero-me Scores to significantly change they might change based on new data;
  • We might use third party algorithms to help us to provide new OneZero-me Scores. We only used third parties where we have confidence about their ability to provide us with accurate results. However, we do not have control over the working mechanism of their algorithms and approach and hence cannot guarantee their outcome; and
  • We might use standard personality questionnaires to assess your personality/behaviour. Personality is an active area of research and some of the observations/methodology may change overtime.

For some of the OneZero-me Scores we also provide a short explanation which aims to clarify the meaning of the result. We aim to provide interpretation for the OneZero-me Scores based on established psychological research or otherwise a factual analysis of the data. However, interpretation may be to some extent subjective and you might not agree with some of our interpretations.

User Benefits are negotiated separately with each Third Party. Different Third Parties might decide to give benefits based on different values of our OneZero-me Scores. This means that getting benefits from one Third Party does not guarantee a similar (or even any) benefit from other Third Parties.

Our OneZero-me Score and explanations are not intended as an advice and therefore you should consult professional or specialist before making any decision based on our OneZero-me Score / explanations.

Sharing OneZero-me Scores with Third Parties

As part of our services, we enable you to share OneZero-me Scores with Third Parties in exchange for a User Benefit. We will ask each Third Party with whom OneZero-me Scores are shared to provide the following information to you at the time any such OneZero-me Scores are shared:

  1. OneZero-me Score(s): the requested OneZero-me Score(s)
  2. Objective: the reason the Third Party is requesting access to your OneZero-me Scores
  3. Retained period: the length of time the OneZero-me Scores will be held by the third party
  4. Sharing: description of potential partners of the third party (if any) that will be given access to the data
  5. User Benefit: the potential benefits that will be given in return for sharing the data

Third Parties are committed by contract (with OneZero-me) to honour these Terms and in particular:

  1. to keep the privacy of your information
  2. to meet standard security procedures to protect your OneZero-me Scores
  3. to deliver the User Benefit as outlined in the Terms in a reasonable time
  4. to only use the OneZero-me Score(s) for the purpose for which they were shared

Once you agree with the Terms, we will issue an electronic receipt for both yourself and the Third Party confirming the Terms and, following this, we will share the requested OneZero-me Score(s) with the Third Party.

Onezero-me acts as an intermediary between you and the Third Party that facilitates the exchange of OneZero-me Scores in return for a User Benefit and in accordance to the Terms. We are not part of this agreement and hence are not responsible for any statement, User Benefits and ongoing engagements with Third Parties. You agree that we shall have no liability for any breach of these Terms by any Third Party.

New insights

We constantly work on providing new OneZero-me Scores based on your existing data. This may include:

  • Using Enrichments APIs that may provide us with new insights
  • Discovering new OneZero-me Scores via one of our Studies

1. Using Enrichments APIs

Enrichments APIs can help us to provide new OneZero-me Scores based on your data. These APIs do not store any copy of your data, and we will never share any personally identifiable information (PII) with them. The list of third party services that we use for this purpose is contained in our Privacy Notice.

You acknowledge that we may introduce new Enrichments APIs after you've signed up and we may use them to provide you with new insights about your data.

2. Studies

Studies are anecdotical studies we conduct in order to make new OneZero-me Scores based on data that already exists in the platform. For example, we might link music genres collected from Spotify with answers to personality questionnaire to create a personality model based on Spotify data.

Such studies are conducted in four steps

  1. We identify the type of OneZero-me Score we aim to develop (e.g. create a personality model based on Spotify data)
  2. We collect and aggregate the relevant pseudonymised data on a new dedicated server. For example, we collect the Spotify playlists and results from personality tests from all our users. We do not include any identifiable information when aggregating this data.
  3. We analyse the data to come up with a model that can produce the new OneZero-me Score and assess its’ accuracy.
  4. We delete all the data and release the server

The outcome of these steps are models used to provide you with OneZero-me Scores. Models are completely anonymous and cannot be used to identify any person.

You acknowledge that we may conduct new Studies from time to time and we may use them to provide you with new OneZero-me Scores based on your Data.

Calibration exercise

In order to get value from Third Parties based on our OneZero-me Scores we need, from time to time to prove the accuracy of our OneZero-me Scores to Third Parties. This is accomplished via a Calibration Exercise where we share some pseudonymised OneZero-me Scores with the third party such that they are able to validate the effectiveness of our scores and provide appropriate User Benefits in return.

We might ask you to participate in a Calibration Exercise in order to provide a new service or improve existing one.
