Given you are treating {a,a,b,b} the same as {b,b,a,a} I assume
it doesn't matter which is saved. That is sorting each to put
them into a standard I assume is acceptable. So,
In[1]:= data = {{0, 0, 1, 1}, {0, 0, 2, 2}, {0, 0, 3, 3}, {1, 1, 0,
0}, {1, 1, 2, 2}, {1, 1, 3, 3}, {2, 2, 0, 0}, {2, 2, 1, 1},
{2, 2,
3, 3}, {3, 3, 0, 0}, {3, 3, 1, 1}, {3, 3, 2, 2}};
In[2]:= Union[Sort /@ data]
Out[2]= {{0, 0, 1, 1}, {0, 0, 2, 2}, {0, 0, 3, 3}, {1, 1, 2, 2}, {1,
1, 3, 3}, {2, 2, 3, 3}}
does the trick.
If the list has elements with a pattern different than {a,a,b,b}
that you want to preserve ordered as they are then
Union[data/.{a_,a_,b_,b_}:>Sort[{a,a,b,b}]
should work. And if you need to preserve the order in which each
sublist appears, use DeleteDuplicates instead of Union
