Privacy & Cookie Policy

Think Theology collects different types of information about our users for the following main reasons:

To provide an interactive web site where email is used to communicate with the users.

To provide a security mechanism whereby we can restrict content to certain groups of users.

To help us to improve the service we offer.

Our principles

We are absolutely committed to protecting your privacy. Our policy can be summarised in one sentence: we will not share your information with others without your consent.

We have established the following two principles:

1. We will respect your email privacy. You will only receive email from ThinkTheology in relation to areas you have expressly signed up for.
2. We will not share any individual user details (including your email address) to any third party without your consent.

What information do we collect?

We collect information on our users through registration.

The minimum information we need to register a user is your first and last name, your post code and a password.

Who will have access to your information?

You have control over who is able to access specific items of information. By default your information will not be visible to anyone else using the site. You can change these settings from your personal profile page, as and when additonal features are made available.

What else you should know about privacy

Remember to close your browser when you have finished your user session. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe. You as an individual are responsible for the security of, and access to, your own computer.

Please be aware that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information over the Internet that this information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information in publicly accessible online forums, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your usernames and passwords and any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are using the Internet.

Our pages may contain links to other websites, and you should be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices on other websites.
