Under Data Protection legislation the church Charity Trustees of Waltham Abbey Baptist Church are the Data Controller and the Church Secretary acts as our Data Protection Officer.
We are collecting this information to enable the church to keep in touch with you 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.
Your name and contact details will be entered into our church database which is held on the church office computer which is password protected and accessed only by the Ministers, Church Secretary and Church Trustees. Your contact details will be removed from the database once you are no longer a member of the church – unless you ask to remain as one of our “church friends”.
We would like to include your name and contact details in our Church Directory which will be distributed by email to all Church Members and in hard copy as appropriate. A copy will also be kept in the church office. We will not give copies of the Church Directory to anyone else. If you are happy for your details to be included please indicate where asked to do so below. You can ask for your details to be removed at any time.
You have the right to ask to see any information we hold about you by submitting a ‘Subject Access Request’ to the Church Secretary. You also have the right to ask for information which you believe to be incorrect to be rectified. If you are concerned about the way your information is being handled please speak to our Data Protection Officer. If you are still unhappy you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioners Office.
