Data Privacy Notice

Data Privacy notice under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Who are we?

The data controller who decides how your personal data is processed and for what purposes is Wembdon PCC, and the Vicar of St George’s Church Wembdon.

How do we process your personal data?

Wembdon PCC and the Vicar of St George’s Church Wembdon comply with their 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:

If you provide us with information including contact details in order to receive pastoral care, we will not use it for other purposes without asking you first. Information that you provide us in connection with a Baptism, Wedding or Funeral enquiry will be used to enable us to process the enquiry and if relevant, to conduct the service and fulfil legal obligations. We only pass information to third parties who need it in order to help us fulfil our undertaking: for example an organist at a funeral or wedding service. We do not use the information you give us for other purposes unless we have asked you.

Information that you provide because you are part of an activity or group that we are running, such as a Holiday Bible Club, a course, a youth club, or an event, will be used to help us run that event. We may ask you if we can use that information to tell you about other events, but we will not use your information for this purpose unless you agree. Information that you provide in connection with booking, hiring or letting rooms in the Parish Centre will be used for that purpose, which includes invoicing, and informing you of meetings to which Parish centre users are invited.

Information that you provide in order to join the Electoral Roll will only be used in connection with the Electoral Roll, unless you have agreed otherwise. Electoral Roll information is available for inspection in accordance with legal requirements, but the Roll
will not normally be displayed.

If you join a mailing list run by St George’s Church, you can unsubscribe at any time. If there is no link given within your email you can contact the owner of the list and ask to be removed.

If you join the church’s main database, we will ask your consent in order to be able to use the data you provide to help us manage St George’s Church including the maintenance of membership records and to help you make the most of your part within the life of the church community.

Information that you provide in connection with charitable giving to Wembdon PCC will be used for those purposes only.
We do not share your details with third parties unless there is a legal obligation on us to do so.
