1. Your personal data – what is it?

Personal data relates to a living individual who can be identified from that data. Identification can be by the information alone or in conjunction with any other information in the data controller’s possession or likely to come into such possession. The processing of personal data is governed by the General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”)

2. Who are we?

You are the data subject.
The PCC is the data controller. This means it decides how your personal data is processed and for what purposes.

3. How do we process your personal data?

The PCC complies with its’ obligations under the “GDPR” by keeping personal data up to date; by storing and destroying it securely; by not collecting or retaining excessive amounts of data; by protecting personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access and disclosure and by ensuring that appropriate technical measures are in place to protect personal data.
We use your personal data for the following purposes;
• To enable us to run activities that provide a voluntary service for the benefit of the congregation and the local community.
• To administer membership records to fulfil our safeguarding obligations.
• To fundraise and promote interests of the charities we support
• To manage our employees and volunteers
• To maintain our own accounts and records (including the processing of gift aid applications.)
• To inform you of news, events, activities and services running at All Saints’ and St. Andrew's.
• To share your contact details with the Diocesan office as necessary (e.g. PCC members, so that they can keep you informed about news, events, activities and services that will be occurring in the diocese and which are directly relevant to the role you are undertaking and Parish Safeguarding representative's details if booking for a training course.)

4. What is the legal basis for processing your personal data?

Explicit consent from the data subject is required so that we can process your data. Processing is necessary for compliance with legal regulations. Processing is carried out by us as a not for profit organisation and there is no disclosure to a third party without consent. The processing relates only to members or former members (or those who have regular contact with it in connection with those purposes); and there is no disclosure to a third party without consent.

5. Sharing your personal data

Your personal data will be treated as strictly confidential and will only be shared with the clergy, PCC members and those with leadership roles and administrators for purposes connected with the church. We will only share your data with third parties outside of the parish with your consent.

6. How long do we keep your personal data?

We keep data in accordance with the guidance set out in the guide “Keep or Bin: Care of your Parish Records” which is available from the Church or England website (see footnote for link).
Specifically we retain electoral roll data while it is still current; gift aid declarations and associated paperwork for up to 7 years after the tax year to which they relate; and parish registers (baptisms, marriages, funerals) permanently, along with other legally required information.
