The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) took effect in the UK from 25 May 2018. It replaced the existing law on data protection (the Data Protection Act 1998) and gives individuals more rights and protection regarding how their personal data is used by organisations.
The London Diocesan Fund (LDF) needs to use information, including personal data, to support the mission and growth of the Church in London. In response to changing data privacy law, we are making it easier for you to find out how we handle your information.
We want to be open and transparent about how we use your personal data. We’re not changing the way we use your data, but our new privacy notices provide you with information about the types of personal data we hold, how we use your information and the reasons for this. They also provide additional details, such as your increased rights in relation to the information we hold about you.
How to find out more
We encourage you to view our new LDF privacy notice below to find out how we might process your data and for what purpose.
Just like any other organisation, parishes and churches must comply with the requirements of the GDPR. We encourage parishes and churches in the Diocese to use our GDPR Toolkit for Parishes, which has been carefully drawn up. You can download the whole GDPR Toolkit, Action Plan checklist, Data Audit questionnaire and various templates from ‘Resources’ below.
GDPR workshops were attended earlier in the year, by clergy and lay participants from across the Diocese. The feedback received indicate that the workshops have been helpful in drawing out many of the issues that parishes face. In order to capture the training provided, the final workshop was filmed.
To get the most out of the training which the video provides, at least 1hr 45mins should be set aside. There are 5 pauses to ‘reflect and share’ at intervals throughout the presentation. The video is 1hr 15mins long; about 5 minutes should be allowed for each opportunity to ‘reflect and share’.
The slides shown at the workshops are included in the film. These have also been provided separately, along with questions and answers gathered from all of the workshops, and are available under ‘Resources’ below.
