Privacy Policy

When you sign up to our services, The Thought Box obtains information about you.  The Thought Box is dedicated to protecting the confidentiality and privacy of information entrusted to it, and complies with the Data Protection Act 1998 and the  General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We are also registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) as a data controller and have a legal duty to protect the personal information that we collect and use. Please review this Privacy Statement to learn more about what information we may collect about you and how we use that information.

How your privacy is protected

When we collect information from you, we only collect information that is required in order to provide you with the service that you need.  The personal data that we may collect include contact details such as name, postal address, telephone number, email address as well as financial and transaction data, such as credit or debit card number.  Your information is stored securely in our computer system. We have security procedures in place to protect your personal data from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction. Additionally, we aim to ensure that access to your personal data is limited to those who need to access it.   Those individuals who have access to the data are required to maintain the confidentiality of such information.

What we do with your information

Your information will be used to contact you in order to send you material related to the course and to tell you about the services and support that are available to you.  Our admin team may also contact you with information that may be helpful to you.

We may share personal data that you submit to us via this website with suppliers or subcontractors working on our behalf in accordance with our data protection obligations.  Some of our service providers who process your data may be based outside of the EEA.  We will take measures to ensure that such handling of your data comply with applicable data protection laws.  

We would also like to use your name and email address to inform you of our future offers and similar products.  This information is not shared with third purposes and you can unsubscribe any time.

There are times when it is just not practical to ask a person for consent. In many situations, the best approach for us is to process personal data because of our legitimate interests, rather than consent. 

The law allows personal data to be legally collected and used if it is necessary for a legitimate business interest of the organisation – as long as its use is fair and balanced and does not unduly impact the rights of the individual concerned.

We do not sell your personal data or provide it to third parties for their direct marketing use.

We will retain your information for as long as it is necessary for legitimate business purposes.
