How we use data that you give us.
We are collecting this information to enable the church to keep in touch with you and provide pastoral support as appropriate. Data Protection legislation allows us to process this information as we regard it as being in the church’s legitimate interest.
Your name and contact details will be entered into our church database which is held on the church office computer which is password protected and accessed only by the Team Leaders, Operations Manager and staff team. Your contact details will be removed from the database once you are no longer a member of the church – unless you ask to remain as one of our “church friends”.
To enable us to provide adequate pastoral support to you and your family, one of the Team Leaders may record information which may be regarded as sensitive. This information will be stored (in password protected documents) on the church computer but the password will only be known by the Ministers. This information will NOT be disclosed to anyone else without your consent.
You have the right to ask to see any information we hold about you (including the pastoral support information) by submitting a ‘Subject Access Request’ to the Church Secretary. You also have the right to ask for information which you believe to be incorrect to be rectified.
If you are concerned about the way your information is being handled please contact us using the above details. If you are still unhappy you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioners Office.
