We are collecting this information to enable the church to run various young people and children’s activities (e.g. our Sunday groups, Topz, Teenz, YPF, or Holiday Club) safely and ensure we can contact you as a parent/guardian (or other nominated adult) in case of an emergency. Data Protection legislation allows us to process this information as we regard it as being in the church’s legitimate interest. If you are unable to supply the information requested then we will be unable to accept your child at our young people and children’s activities.

The information you supply will be held in paper form in a folder which will be kept in a securely locked cupboard in the church office and electronically stored on password protected church computers.  Only the Minister, Church Administrators, safeguarding co-ordinator and children’s and young people’s leaders will have access to this information. 

We will remove your young person or child’s details from the above once they are no longer attending the activity unless you have ticked the box asking us to keep you informed about future activities we think your child might be interested in attending. If this is the case we will retain your details for the sole purpose of notifying you of such events. We will NOT pass on this information to anyone else. You have the right to ask to be removed from this circulation list at any time.  We will keep some limited personal information indefinitely for historical record or legal purposes.    

If you are concerned about the way your or your child’s information is being handled please contact our Data Protection Officer.
If you are still unhappy you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioners Office.
