We are collecting this information to enable the church to keep in touch with you and
provide pastoral support as appropriate.
Data Protection legislation allows us to process this information as we regard it as being in
the church’s legitimate interest.
Your name and contact details will be entered into our church database which is held on the
church office computer which is password protected and accessed only by the Ministers,
Church Secretary and Church Administrator. Your contact details will be removed from
the database once you are no longer a member of the church – unless you ask to remain
as one of our “church friends”.
If you serve Foleshill Baptist Church as a member of staff or in a key role then we will pass on
your name and contact details to the Baptist Union of Great Britain and/or the Heart of
England Baptist Association (of which we are members) to enable them to send you
information relevant to your role. We will always ensure you are aware of what
information is being shared with them and you will be able to decide which contact
details are shared
To enable us to provide adequate pastoral support to you and your family, one of the
Ministers may record information which may be regarded as sensitive. This information
will be stored (in password protected documents) on the church computer but the
password will only be known by the Ministers. This information will NOT be disclosed to
anyone else without your consent.
You have the right to ask to see any information we hold about you (including the pastoral
support information) by submitting a ‘Subject Access Request’ to the Church Secretary.
You also have the right to ask for information which you believe to be incorrect to be
rectified.
If you are concerned about the way your information is being handled, please speak to
our Data Protection Trustee. If you are still unhappy you have the right to complain to the
Information Commissioners Office.
