Data Privacy

The General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR) is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union and the European Economic Area. It also addressed the export of personal data outside the EU and EEA areas.

The PCC of St. Bartholomew's, Sydenham has agreed to use "legitimate interest" as the basis for processing data under the GDPR, as specified in Para 4 of our Data Protection Notice. While most data processing in St. Bartholomew's Church will either be on the basis of explicit consent or processing carried out with a religious aim relating to church members, "legitimate interest" will be used as a basis when processing data relating to families who have had weddings, baptisms, funerals and other family events in church, and have provided their contact details to us in relation to those events. It will be used where obtaining explicit consent would be pastorally insensitive, in order to invited these families to church events, maintain contact through Christmas or birthday cards and in other ways which promote a continuing relationship between us and those who have used the church for significant rites of passage. 

This follows the allowance for using legitimate interests for marketing purposes in Recital 47 of GDPR. Furthermore, data will only be processed on this basis when it fulfils GDPR's threefold test for using legitimate interest, which requires the data controller to:

  • identify a legitimate interest;
  • show that the processing is necessary to achieve it; and
  • balance it against your interests, rights and freedoms.
