Data Protection

Protecting Personal and Sensitive Information (Data)

As you are aware new legislation for the Protection of Data (GDRP 2018) came into being on May 25th last. Parishes like our own, who have always been vigilant in respecting and protecting personal data, (i.e. Sacramental records, Financial contributions, contact information, booking forms, etc held in respect of services provided to parishioner and others,) must now implement some new procedures for how we collect, utilize and retain this data.

New Procedures

We now need explicit written permission from all volunteers to hold their contact details for the purposes of rotas. This must be done through the signing of a consent forms. These consent forms will be made available to those involved in the various parish groups and teams at their next group or team meeting. All rotas displaying personal data will be removed until consent is sought. We ask for your kind cooperation in this please.
