Data Privacy Notice

New regulations, the General Data Protection Regulations (“GDPR”), come into force in May 2018, introducing more stringent rules on how ‘personal data’ is processed. This notice gives more information about these new regulations. 


1. Your personal data – what is it?

Personal data relates to an 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 GDPR. 


2. Who are we? 

The PCCs of All Saints’ Botley and St Peter’s Curdridge and Holy Cross Durley (referred to in this policy as ‘we’ or the ‘Church’) are the data controllers (contact details below).  This means we decide how your personal data is processed and for what purposes. 

3. How do we process your personal data?

We comply with our obligations under the “GDPR” by keeping personal data up to date; by storing it securely; by not collecting or retaining excessive amounts of data; by protecting personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access and disclosure, by ensuring that appropriate technical measures are in place to protect personal data and by ensuring that it is destroyed when it is no longer required or relevant.


We use your personal data for the following purposes:

To enable us to provide a voluntary service for the benefit of the congregation of the Church and the  wider village community including our united parishes of Botley, Curdridge and Durley

To administer membership/participation records such as rotas and church groups

To fundraise and promote the interests of the Church

To manage our employees and volunteers

To maintain our accounts and records (including the processing of gift aid applications)


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

The General Data Protection Regulations provide several acceptable reasons for processing your information.

If you are a member, frequent attendee or new contact of the Church or a group associated with the  Church, we have a “Legitimate Interest” to process your personal data for the smooth running of the Church

If you are not a member, frequent attendee or new contact we will require your “Consent” to process your data

If you are a Church employee or otherwise have a contractual relationship with the Church your “Contract” provides the basis for processing data;

If there are legal obligations such as child protection record-keeping or baptism, wedding and funeral records we have a “Legal” reason to process data.

However, for keeping in touch with you electronically the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations require your opt-in consent to enable us to keep you informed by phone, email, or text about news, events, activities and services that we deem relevant to those associated with the Church. 

5. Sharing your personal data

Your personal data will be treated as strictly confidential and will only be shared with other members of the Church in order to carry out a service to Church members or for purposes connected with the mission of the churches of All Saints’ Botley, St Peter’s Curdridge and Holy Cross Durley. We will only share your data with third parties 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 of England website  Specifically, we retain electoral roll data while it is still current; gift aid declarations and associated paperwork for up to 6 years after the calendar year to which they relate; and parish registers (baptisms, marriages, funerals) permanently.


7. Your rights and your personal data

Unless an exemption under the GDPR applies, you have the following rights with respect to your personal data:

The right to request a copy of your personal data which we hold

The right to request that we correct any personal data if it is found to be inaccurate or out of date

The right to request your personal data is erased where it is no longer necessary for us to retain such data

The right to withdraw your consent to the processing at any time

The right, where there is a dispute in relation to the accuracy or processing of your personal data, to request a restriction is placed on further processing

The right to request that we provide you with your personal data and where possible, transmit that data directly to another data controller, known as the right to data portability, if you have given consent

The right to object to the processing of personal data at any time

The right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office.


8. Further processing

If we wish to use your personal data for a new purpose, not covered by this Data Privacy Notice, then we will provide you with a new notice explaining this new use prior to commencing the processing and setting out the relevant purposes and processing conditions. Where and whenever necessary, we will seek your prior consent to the new processing.
