We collect 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 stored on our church database, which is held securely on ChurchSuite, an encrypted service designed for this purpose. It is password protected and accessed only by the Ministers, Church staff and designated volunteers. Your contact details will be removed from the database once you are no longer regularly attending the church – unless you ask to remain as one of our “church friends”.
You can ask for your details to be removed at any time. To enable us to provide adequate pastoral support to you and your family, one of the Ministers may record information which may be regarded as sensitive. This information will be stored (in password protected documents) on the church server 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 Operations Manager. 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 speak to our Data Protection Lead. If you are still unhappy you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioners Office.
