Privacy Notice

1. Introduction

The General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR) requires all organisations who obtain, record or hold information or personal data to ensure that the data is processed lawfully, fairly and transparently and that it is only collected for specified explicit and legitimate purposes. The Regulation also requires that personal data must be accurate, kept up to date and processed in a manner that ensures its security.

This Privacy Notice describes how Children for Christ comply with their legal and financial requirements of GDPR, HMRC and the Charities Regulator.

For the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Children for Christ is the data controller. This means Children for Christ decides how an individual’s personal data, known as the data subject, is processed and for what purposes.

2. Your Personal Data – What Is It?

Personal data relates to a living individual who can be identified from that data. The data held may include the individuals title, name, address, telephone number, mobile phone number, e mail address and in some cases bank details where we hold data regarding the date and amount of any financial gift received. 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 GDPR.

3. How Do We Process Your Personal Data?

Children for Christ complies with their 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 and organisational measures are in place to protect personal data.

We shall not share your personal data with any third party.

6. How Long Do We Keep Your Personal Data?

We keep data only for so long as is necessary. Specifically, we retain your data while it is still current, Gift Aid declarations and associated paperwork shall be retained for up to 6 years after the tax year to which they relate.
