“Personal data” is any information about a living individual which allows them to be identified from that data (for example a name, photographs, videos, email address, or address). Identification can be by the information alone or in conjunction with any other information. The processing of personal data is governed by the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (the “GDPR”) and other legislation relating to personal data and rights such as the Human Rights Act 1998.
Who are we?
This Privacy Notice is provided to you by the Parochial Church Council (PCC) of St Matthew’s Westminster, the data controller for your data.
The Church of England is made up of a number of different organisations and office holders who work together to deliver the Church’s mission in each community. The PCC works together with:
the incumbent of the parish (that is, our Vicar, Fr Philip Chester)
the bishops of the Diocese of London; and
the London Diocesan Fund, which is responsible for the financial and administrative arrangements for the Diocese of London.
As the Church is made up of all of these persons and organisations working together, we may need to share personal data we hold with them so that they can carry out their responsibilities to the Church and our community. The organisations referred to above are joint data controllers. This means we are all responsible to you for how we process your data.
Each of the data controllers have their own tasks within the Church and a description of what data is processed and for what purpose is set out in this Privacy Notice. This Privacy Notice is sent to you by the PCC on our own behalf and on behalf of each of these data controllers. In the rest of this Privacy Notice, we use the word “we” to refer to each data controller, as appropriate.
