DATA PRIVACY

Your data is safe with us...

YOUR PERSONAL DATA – WHAT IS IT? 

Personal data relates to a living individual who can be identified from that data. Identification can be by the information alone or in conjunction with any other information in the data controller’s possession or likely to come into such possession. The processing of personal data is governed by the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679(the “GDPR”)1.

WHO ARE WE? 

Cornerstone City Church (CCC) is the data controller (contact details below). This means it decides how your personal data is processed and for what purposes. 

HOW DO WE PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

CCC complies with its 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 may use your personal data for the following purposes: - 

  • To administer congregational membership records
  • To fundraise and promote the interests of the charity
  • To process our financial records and associated HMRC gift aid claims
  • To manage our employees and volunteers
  • To maintain our own reasonable accounts and records
  • To ensure adequate pastoral care is provided to those that are part of CCC
  • To develop community connection through promoting events and groups
  • For group, event and ministry leaders to contact those that have signed up for events, groups and ministry teams
  • To externally inform individuals of news, events, activities or services running at CCC or with appropriate organisations we think are relevant to our work as a charitable organisation and faith community
  • To internally monitor engagement with CCC connection points (such as Groups & Communities and Events) and develop pathways of appropriate ‘next-steps’
  • For checking children into and out of ministry groups as per our Child Protection Policy in line with best practice as advised by CCPAS
  • To enable CCC to provide a voluntary service for the benefit of the public as specified in our memorandum & articles
  • To operate the CCC website and deliver the services that individuals have requested
  • To contact individuals to conduct research about their opinions of current services or of potential new services that may be offered (i.e. feedback on Groups & Communities)

SHARING YOUR PERSONAL DATA 

Your personal data will be treated as strictly confidential and will be shared only with relevant trained staff or volunteers handling your data for the express purposes you have given authorisation for. We will only share your data with third parties outside of our organisation with your prior written consent. 

HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DATA?2 

Your personal data will be stored for a period of 12 months, except where legally obliged to store it for longer (i.e. financial records = 7 years). Every 6 months a data retention audit will be performed by our Operations & Administration Team upon which any redundant data will be archived and subsequently deleted 6 months after if it has not been used during that period.

Details about retention periods can currently be found in the Record Management Guides located on the Church of England website at: - https://www.churchofengland.org/about- us/structure/churchcommissioners/administration/librariesandarchives/recordsmanagementguides.aspx

We keep your personal data for no longer than reasonably and legally necessary and we only retain your personal data for the purposes outlined above.
