On 25 May 2018 the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force and this page contains a number of resources to explain what these are about and how we as a church are complying with them.
This presentation was originally made to the PCC of St Edmund’s to explain the new regulations and how they affect us as a church.
Because of the universal accessibility of online services and events, we are required to get those taking part in such events to sign a contributor release form, giving permission for their video to be broadcast. There is an accompanying contributor privacy notice which explains the terms.
Data Protection Policy
Our data protection policy is an internal document which explains how we go about complying with the regulation, and when we need to get consent. This is a reference document for us to know what to do when we want to collect personal data for any purpose, and also a record of the legal basis for our data use, should anyone query it in future.
