PERSONAL DATA – WHAT IS IT?

Personal data is information about a living individual which is capable of identifying that individual.   It might include information such as title, name, and address, date of birth, email and telephone number. Some data is classed as ‘sensitive personal data’. This includes but is not limited to information that reveals your religious beliefs, health issues, race or ethnic origin.

OUR PROMISE We are committed to respecting your privacy and ensuring that the personal data you have entrusted us with is kept safe and processed only for the purposes declared. We will always treat any sensitive personal data with the greatest of care. We will never share your data with third parties outside of the parish without your explicit consent unless we are legally required to do so

WHAT WE USE YOUR DATA FOR
