Please ensure that you read this notice and any other similar notice we provide to you from time to time when we collect or process personal data about you. We are committed to being transparent about how we collect and use your data and to meeting our data protection obligations. What is personal data? 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 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 (2016/679 EU). What information do we collect? We collect and process a range of information about you. The personal information we hold will vary, depending on the nature of the relationship we have with you. To help you understand what information we collect, how we process it and who we share it with we have provided a brief overview of the type of data we hold. Volunteers and Officers To help us manage our relationship with our officers and volunteers, including for example Diocesan Synod, Parish Parochial Councils or District Church Councils, Parish Safeguarding Officers, or Children and Youth Workers, we collect personal information to help us meet our legitimate and legal obligations. For example we may collect information relating to individual’s names, titles, addresses, email addresses, bank account details, office holding or voluntary position. We have collected your personal data in the process of you agreeing to take on voluntary roles and as a consequence of your involvement with us. Communications Your privacy is important to us. We will use your details to keep in touch about things that matter to you. If you choose to hear from us, we may send you information about what is going on in the Diocese and the wider Church of England; this may include information about events, news updates, book reviews and information about personnel changes in the Diocese. The personal data we will use includes name, title, email address, church attended and photographs. We will only communicate with you if you agree to this and we will never share your information with third party marketing organisations. If you agree to receive information from us, you can change your mind at a later date. We may sometimes use third parties to help us manage our communications and understand the information we have, for example Google Analytics, Mailchimp and Typeform. Using anonymised data like this helps us to understand the numbers, geographical location and actions of people visiting our website. We will only use third parties where we are confident they will treat your data securely and in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulations. We may also hold personal data on our Diocesan Contact Management database. The types of data we may hold includes name, title, date of birth, gender, contact details (including address, email address and telephone numbers), details about any volunteer or ecclesiastical offices you hold and which church you belong to.
