Privacy Policy


This Privacy Policy applies to 4Sciences Group Ltd, also referred to as “we”, “us” or “our”. 4Sciences Group Ltd provides professional advice on all aspects of Higher Education and research management.

4Sciences Group Ltd is serious about protecting your privacy and maintaining the security of any personal information collected or received from you.

This policy describes how we process any personal data that we might collect from you or that you might provide to us. Personal data in this context is defined as any information relating to any living individual that can lead to identifying that individual.

The legal basis

The processing of personal data is governed by the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR), as passed into UK law in the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA).

4Sciences Group Ltd is registered as data controller with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO); our registration number is A8755209. We, as the data controller, are responsible for how your personal data is processed and for what purposes.

4Sciences Group Ltd does not have a data protection officer, as Article 37 of the GDPR does not require us to do so.

The data

We primarily collect personal data from you as part of client interactions, be it initial enquiries, the contracting process or subsequent project delivery. Where a project involves working with other individuals we will seek informed consent from any individual prior to collecting their personal data.

We also keep personal data to manage sub-contracts or any staff or consultants working for us. We might also use personal data to inform you of news, services or activities. In addition we use publicly available data for research or marketing purposes. We are required by law to keep personal data in order to maintain our company accounts and records. We will do so for the periods we are required to.

This website does not use any cookies.

Our website may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). This content is not covered by this policy, as it is outside our control. It behaves in exactly the same way as if the visitor has visited the website that is providing this content. How that website is treating your data is governed by their privacy policy.

Data management

4Sciences Group Ltd takes the security of any personal data very seriously. We are complying with our obligations under GDPR and DPA by storing your personal data securely and protecting it from loss, misuse or unauthorised access through using secure soft- and hardware systems. We only collect data we require to conduct our business and only keep it for as long as we are legally required to. Tax law for example requires us to keep client data for six years.

Your rights

You can request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes which are exempt under GDPR or DPA.
