GDPR - What is it? How does it affect us?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25 May this year.  This new law affects how companies and organisations record, store, process and use your personal information.  It applies to the Church as well as to commercial organisations. We now have to receive explicit written consent from you to store and use your information.  This is why many of you have received emails this week asking you to provide us with this consent.  The consent you give is then stored against your parishioner record so that we can demonstrate that that we have consent.  At any time you may request to see, amend or delete your data from our system and we can only use it for the purpose for which it was provided.  This is why, in some instances, we are asking for more than one ‘consent’. (e.g. consent to put your name and number on our website and a separate consent to email you.)  Thank you for your patience with this. If you would like to read more about how we use and store your data, our Privacy Policy is available click here, we can also supply a printed copy for you to view. Contact Caroline on 502503.
