Statement of intent
St Michaels Community Centre is committed to safeguarding your privacy, including online. This statement sets out how, and why, we use personal information, (or “data”), you have provided, at events or through our website www.smcc-welling.co.uk. Please read this carefully to understand how your personal information will be treated.
Personal Information – data
Your personal information is also known as data, and is protected by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679).
Any data you provide about yourself, and any information which identifies you, such as your name, address, email address, telephone number, will only be retained by us if you tell us that we can do so. Of course, you might choose not to, however this means that we may not be able to provide you with the full range of our services (for example, letting you know any news or event updates). You have the right to update and amend your personal details and/or data permissions at any time by sending an email to admin team ; firstname.lastname@example.org.
What we use your data for
If you’ve given us permission, we hold your data on system and use it for operational purposes, such as sending you information via electronic mail and/or direct mail relating to news, upcoming events, newsletters or merchandise. From time to time we might ask you for additional information, for the same purposes or to update our records. You never have to agree to this; and we will always tell you why we need this information.
Sharing your data
We will never share your data without your permission and you can withdraw your permission at any time.
