GDPR Updates

General Data Protection Regulation in the Parish of St. Michan
The European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect on 25 May 2018. The Parish of St. Michan is working closely with the Diocese to ensure that it is fully compliant with this new legislation so that the parish can continue to grow and thrive. To ensure the efficient running of the parish, it will be necessary on occasion to process personal data. The processing of this data will be governed by the “GDPR”, and there will be clear policies and procedures posted on the church notice boards from mid-May 2018.

The Parish of St. Michan in Halston Street complies with its 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 measures are in place to protect personal data. We use your personal data for the following purposes: -
• To administer parish records held by us;
• To fundraise and promote the interests of the parish;
• To manage our employees and volunteers;
• To maintain our own accounts and records (including the processing of donations and tax back applications)
• To inform you of news, events, activities and services running at the Parish of St. Michan in Halston Street;
• To share your contact details with the Diocesan offices so they can keep you informed about Diocesan news, events, activities and services in the diocese.
In order to process your personal data, we must have a legal basis to do so, such as:-
• Your explicit consent so that we can keep you informed about news, events, activities and services and process your donations and keep you informed about events.
• Processing is necessary for carrying out obligations under employment, financial, canon law, or other legal requirements;
• Processing is carried out by a not-for-profit body with a religious aim provided: -
(a) the processing relates only to members of the congregation or former members (or those who have regular contact with it in connection with those purposes); and (b) there is no disclosure to a third party without consent.
At all times, your personal data will be treated as strictly confidential and will only be shared with other clergy or staff of the parish for purposes connected with the parish

We will only share your data with third parties outside of the parish with your consent.
