We are increasingly aware how precious our personal details, our habits, our likes, opinions and spending patterns are to social media companies. This is all ‘data’ and it belongs to you. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) protects your data, and imposes duties on organisations (like our Parish) that make use of this data. The 2 Privacy Notices posted here will help you help us to protect your data, and use it wisely.
There are 2 different notices.
The first is for members of the congregation and members of the community who have given their personal details to the Parish so they can receive pastoral visits, newsletters and the like.
The second is for people who have an elected or appointed role in the Parish. We call them ‘role-holders’. Because of the responsibilities of the work they do, for example as Parish Treasurer, or as a PCC Member, they cannot ask to have their details removed from our records while they are in office – members of the public need to be able to contact them easily.
