In terms of the General Data Protection Regulation, the trustees of The Community Church Storrington, as shown on this website, are the data controller for personal data collected by the Church. Such data are used to share information about church activities and, for those contributing to or receiving payments from the Church, to maintain financial records. The basis for processing personal data is the consent of the persons concerned. Recipients of the data are those named in a contact list maintained by the Church Secretary who have consented to the listing of their own data. Data in the electronic master list will be deleted from church records when replaced by an update for which fresh consent has been obtained, normally after one year. Anyone may request access to, and rectification of, their personal data held by the Church, and their consent may be withdrawn at any time, at which point the relevant data will be deleted. There is no obligation to supply data, and no intended consequences of not doing so.
The Church also maintains an official Facebook page. No one can add new posts to the account apart from the five administrators, whose names are available from the Church Office, and they will not post personal information without the express consent of the data subject.
In addition to this public Facebook page the Church maintains a closed Facebook group for members of the Church and close friends of the Church. All new members must be approved by one of five administrators, whose names are available from the Church Office, and they will not post personal information without the express consent of the data subject.
Neither the Church trustees nor the administrators can vouch for the truth or fairness of comments added to posts by other people for either of these Facebook profiles.
We send a weekly newsletter and other group specific newsletters when required via Mailchimp. We respect your email privacy. You will only receive emails from The Community Church Storrington in relation to areas you have expressly signed up for. Should you wish to unsubscribe from any email newsletter, you can do so at any time via the simple instructions at the bottom of the email.
We are absolutely committed to protecting your privacy. Our policy can be summarised in one sentence: we will not share your information with others without your consent. Any complaint about the Church’s handling of personal data can be made to any of the trustees, who can be contacted through the Church Office or, if necessary, to the Information Commissioner’s Office, whose helpline is 0303 123 1113.
Our pages may contain links to other websites, and you should be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices on other websites.
