1 Thing A Week

Privacy Policy

1 Thing A Week is an evolving platform for sharing content and there are two key principles at the heart of what it's all about:

  • Security & privacy
  • Speed

Security & Privacy

Your security and privacy both very important. Wherever possible 1TAW avoids sharing data with third parties. By including embedded tweets, YouTube videos or Spotify play lists you may find that your activity is tracked by these services. 1TAW do not use generic sharing options for social networks that drop cookies and uses the no-tracking version of YouTube embeds. YouTube may still attempt to track you, but only if you engage with the content.

We don't have a mailing list but if you're interested in keeping up to date with everything new, follow on twitter or subscribe using RSS (also available in JSON format.

1TAW may use affiliate links in our articles and notable items but endeavours to be transparent about such items.


Speed is also very important, your experience should be fast as you jump from week to week while delivering a rich experience

1 Thing A Week is ultimately funded through advertising and sponsorship, wherever possible advertisers that do not drop cookies will be the preferred method of ad delivery. However advertising or sponsorship get displayed, it will always be responsive and hopefully unobtrusive.


No matter what is linked to or embeded, the cleanest version of the URL will be used, getting you to the content as quickly as possible.

Notable items that may link to an affiliate are marked with a $.
