Thinkfour take your privacy seriously and we are committed to keeping your information private. We will process your personal information in accordance with the Data Protection Legislation.
This privacy notice describes how we collect and use personal information about you when you access content on the site.
OUR LEGAL BASIS FOR COLLECTING YOUR PERSONAL DATA
If you do not click or select the “Accept” button that appears in the pop-up at the bottom of your screen then we will endeavour to not collect your personal data through our cookie. However, even if you do not click or select the “Accept” button there is still some information that we may automatically collect about you – this normally isn’t personal data but rather technical information sent by your device and used to connect your computer, tablet, or mobile device to the Internet, including your browser type and version, the time when you visit our site, your time zone setting, certain browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform. This type of information is sent by you to our site automatically and it isn’t something that we can prevent. We only use this information to administer our site including troubleshooting, load testing, traffic throughput, data analysis, performance testing, and for anonymised research and statistics purposes that we only use internally. We will only hold your personal data as detailed in our Retention Policy.
WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION WILL WE COLLECT FROM YOU?

WHAT WILL WE DO WITH YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
When you give us your personal data we may use it to:
- Grant you access to content on the thinkfour platform
- Provide you with information that you have requested from us;
- Provide you with information about thinkfour;
- Ensure that content from thinkfour is presented in the most effective manner for you by understanding how you use the site.
HOW LONG WILL WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for.
WHERE WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL DATA
The personal data that we collect from you will be stored within the United Kingdom. We will not knowingly transfer your personal data outside of the European Economic Area. Where it may be necessary for us to transfer your personal data outside of the European Economic Area we will get in touch with you and seek your consent. All personal data you provide us is stored on our secure servers.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted from our site and any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your personal data, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. We apply a ‘Privacy by Design’ approach to protecting your personal data in order to promote privacy and data protection compliance from the start.
WHO DO WE SHARE YOUR DATA WITH?
Thinkfour will never sell your data. We will also never share your data with anyone to use for their own purposes unless disclosure is permitted or required by law. We may work with third party providers to further analyse how users access thinkfour – we would seek your express consent to share your personal data with a third party provider.
You have the following rights:
- to obtain access to, and copies of, the personal data that we hold about you;
- to require us to correct the personal data we hold about you if it is incorrect;
- to require us (in certain circumstances) to erase your personal data;
- to request that we restrict our data processing activities (and, where our processing is based on your consent, you may withdraw that consent, without affecting the lawfulness of our processing based on consent before its withdrawal);
- to receive from us the personal data we hold about you which you have provided to us, in a reasonable format specified by you, including for the purpose of you transmitting that personal data to another data controller;
- to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to any of our particular processing activities where you feel this has a disproportionate impact on your rights.
Please note that the above rights are not absolute, and we may be entitled to refuse requests where exceptions apply

The Information Commissioner’s Office is the statutory body responsible for overseeing data protection legislation and law in the United Kingdom.
