Privacy Policy

OneCompass LTD (“OneCompass LTD,” “we” or “us”) provides its users (“Users,” “you” or “your”) with a vast collection of resources and information, including, without limitation, the display of search results and services. We, OneCompass LTD, respect your privacy and have created a Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) to help you understand how we collect, use and share your personal information and to assist you in practicing the privacy rights available to you.

1. Principles of our Privacy Policy

The provisions below serve to provide information as to the manner, extent, and purpose of collecting, using, and processing personal information. This data privacy statement applies to the Web Guard Plus web extension. We operate globally and we try to tune our approach and the language of the privacy policy as much understandable as possible. However, sometimes we refer to specific laws and regulations that require further disclosures.

Accordingly, whenever you see throughout the policy the term“ ‘GDPR’, it means that the scope of such part is to satisfy the transparency requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (AKA the GDPR), and therefore it applies only to users (devices) who we deem to be located in the European Economic Area, United Kingdom, or Switzerland.

2. What data do we collect from you?

OneCompass LTD collects your search term (keyword/phrase/sentence/statement/any other text that you search for) and the URLs on the search result page through Web Guard Plus (referred to as “Services”), in relation to your use of our Services. We only use such information to provide you with the best of the search results as well as to inform you about the safety level (as per our criteria) of each URL.

Some of the web search services provided herein are provided by CodeFuel and powered by CodeFuel’s search partners. For information on the web search services data collection, please visit http://www.codefuel.com/legal/end_user_privacy_policy, and the search provider's privacy policy, as applicable, both as updated from time to time and at any successor locations.

Web Guard Plus shares your search term to the third party search result provider that helps to provide you with the best and relevant search results page. We do not share the data from the search results page.

4. What permissions do we require?

Web Guard Plus requires your permission to override the search to provide you with the best search results with a safer browsing experience by accessing, examining, and alarming you about the URLs on a search result page. To provide a better search and safe browsing please allow these permissions upon request:

chrome.tabs API is used to communicate with the browser’s tab system to access the active URL to analyze it towards our robust mechanism in the background to recognize if the domain is blacklisted, safe or unsafe for you.

webRequest : The "webReqauest" API is used to perceive and examine all the URLs on the web so that a blacklisted URL can instantly be blocked.

webRequestBlocking : We require additional permission to use this API as a blocking mechanism.

These permissions enable the tool to identify and block malicious websites for you.
