Personal Information Collection
We endeavour to collect and use your personal information only with your knowledge and consent and typically when you make enquiries, register for information or other services from the church, submit a job application or when you respond to communications from us (such as questionnaires or surveys).
The type of personal information we may collect could include, for example, your name and postal address, date of birth, gender, telephone numbers, email address etc. If you choose to provide us with any other personal information it will only be used in support of the intended purposes stated at the time at which it was collected, and subject to any preferences indicated by you.
How will we use your information?
We may use your information for a number of purposes which include church administration (including administration of gift-aid) and sending you information about the church services and other events.
However, you can contact us at any time to have your details removed from lists used by us, to update your information or to otherwise tell us how you would like to receive information about our church services – the choice is yours.
To update your information please email the church secretary at email@example.com and quote your name and address in the body of the email and tell us what you want to do (e.g. ‘opt-out Email’ etc or if you have previously objected to receiving information by email or post for example, but would now like to change your mind and receive information then just say, ‘opt-in Email’ in the subject header of your email). You may choose other methods of communication but it must be in writing.
We would normally delete information about anyone who leaves the church after one year.
When will we disclose your information to others?
We will not disclose any personal information to third parties unrelated to Ashtead Baptist Church without your consent. We may, however, be obliged to disclose your personal information to meet any legal or regulatory requirements or obligations in accordance with applicable UK or European law.
We also routinely give contact details of office holders (e.g. person in charge of children’s work) to SEBA and the BUGB.
