Privacy Notice for Stanley Road Baptist Church, Morecambe
Under Data Protection legislation the church Charity Trustees of Stanley Road Baptist Church are the Data Controller, and the Church Secretary acts as our Data Protection Officer.
We hold contact details for our members and regular attenders to enable the church to keep in touch with them and provide pastoral support as appropriate. Data Protection legislation allows us to process this information as we regard it as being in the church’s legitimate interest.
Subject to an individual’s consent, name and contact details are also included in our Contact Directory which is distributed, if requested, to Church Members and some regular attenders. We will not give copies of the Church Directory to anyone else. Details will be removed should an individual cease to be a member of the church – unless they have asked to remain as one of our “church friends”. Details can be removed at any time upon the request of the individual.
To enable us to provide adequate pastoral support to members and their family, the Minister may record information which may be regarded as sensitive. This information will be stored on the Minister’s laptop which is password protected and known only to them. This information will NOT be disclosed to anyone else without their consent.
Individuals have the right to ask to see any information held about them (including the pastoral support information) by submitting a ‘Subject Access Request’ to the Church Secretary. They also have the right to ask for information which they believe to be incorrect to be rectified.
