GDPR Policy

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Christ Church Milton-next Gravesend

 

Privacy laws in the UK changed on 25th May 2018.

 

The new General Protection Regulation (GDPR) gives you more control over how your personal information is used and makes it easier for you to check and update any information we hold about you.

 

As far as our church is concerned any information we hold will, in the main, amount only to contact details such as your name, postal address, phone number and e-mail address. By keeping your details up to date, we can keep you informed of church activities and information which may be of interest or useful to you.

We make sure that we use and store your data safely and securely. Information is only held by church members having a legitimate need to do so, for example, but not exclusively, convenors of committees, organisers of church events such as the Mustard Seed, the administrator of the 200 club, the Church Electoral Roll Officer and those preparing duty rotas.

 

Where your personal information is held on private PCs, this will be password protected. Any hard copy information will be kept in secure, locked files in the Parish Office or securely at home by authorised individuals.

 

All such personal information will be kept for church use only and will not, in any circumstances, be passed to third parties.

 

Your personal information will be erased as soon as it becomes redundant, no longer relevant or out of date.

 

 

The GDPR gives you a number of legal rights to control what we do with your information. For example, you can ask us to tell you what information we have about you, correct or update information that is wrong, or ask us to stop using your information.

 

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure with us, remainsconfidential and accurate and is used only for the purposes of ensuring better communication between the church and its members.

 

If you would like further information or explanation of any of these points, please contact our Data Protection Coordinator, Martin Sewell, on martin.sewell@me.com
