The new General Data Privacy Regulations (GDPR) came into effect on 25th May 2018. The Rector, Curate and the three PCCs are ‘Data Controllers’ and are required to identify the personal data that they hold, such as names, addresses, phone numbers & email addresses, and process it in a way that is fair and transparent.
There are many reasons why data might need to be collected and processed. Some of it a legal requirement, some is necessary for us to for us to carry out the mission of the church within our parishes, whilst sometimes we will need your consent.
Examples of occasions when we will need your consent are:
· for us to keep you informed of news, services, events and activities
· when we would like to use your details or photographs in our publicity materials;
· when volunteers or members of church groups share their contact details with one another.
