Lisburn Cathedral have recently commenced reviewing how we store personal data, and are working to ensure that we comply with the General Data Protection Regulations and in accordance with the guidance from the Information Commissioner’s Office. We will only retain information about you which is adequate to meet the relevant need for which it was intended. For both information received in the past, and any new information that you provide, we will review our policies on this each year. We will also ensure that data and information is removed where this is specifically requested. Information which is stored physically, for example paper records will be stored privately and securely. Information held electronically, for example on computer databases will also be held securely and only accessed by individuals who have a purpose connected with church business to access it. Lisburn Cathedral only retains information which has been provided in the past as long as it continues to be necessary. We have removed information that we believe is no longer relevant – If you have provided your details in the past for a specific purpose, and would like these removed, please let us know. Personal data will not be disclosed outside of Lisburn Cathedral without your consent. Lisburn Cathedral Select Vestry will monitor this on a yearly basis to ensure that organisations are complying. If you would like more information about the manner in which we look after personal data, please contact Tim Flanigan via the church office email address at firstname.lastname@example.org or 028 92 602400.
