Privacy Policy

This privacy policy specifically relates to how The Wisdom Partnership (TWP) stores and uses data about users of its website.

What information do we collect?
When you visit www.thewisdompartnership.com, we collect information in two main ways.

1. As a normal browser of the site
When you browse our website, we collect information such as your IP address, the pages you visit and your operating system and browser type. We use this information to anonymously analyse how our site is used to give you the best possible experience.

2. When you opt to submit personal information
We collect your information when you opt to give it to us, such as when you request to view certain content or when you register for an event or conference by submitting your personal information. We only use this information for the purposes requested, and you can opt out at any time.

Who will the information be shared with?
The information you submit to us as part of an application, request or enquiry may be shared with colleagues within TWP or its affiliates to be able to fulfil your request. In some instances, we will share information with a third party to perform a task on our behalf, such as a fulfilment house to dispatch a letter.

These third parties may come into contact with your personal information in the course of providing their services to us, but they must provide equivalent levels of security for your personal information in the same way that TWP does.

We will never sell your personal information to a third party.
