The processing of Personal Data is currently governed by the EC General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (the GDPR). Personal data are data relating to a living individual - the Data Subject - who can be identified from that data. Any organisation possessing (or likely to come into possession of) personal data must declare how and why they are held and processed. Each such organisation is a Data Controller.

The Parochial Church Council (PCC) of Pendomer (“We”) is the data controller for the data covered by this notice. We need to comply with our obligations under the GDPR by ensuring that we keep personal data up to date, store and destroy them securely, do not collect or retain excessive amounts of data and protect them from loss, misuse and unauthorised access or disclosure. We ensure that appropriate technical measures are in place to achieve this and we have procedures to manage breaches of data.

All the data that we process are provided directly by the data subject (“You”). The purposes for which we process data are:

    To compile the parish Electoral Roll

    To administer planned giving

    To reclaim tax on Gift Aid donations

    To pay persons supplying goods or services

    To manage the membership and activities of the PCC

    To advise you of church services and other events or activities

    To have custody of baptism and marriage registers

The data processes that we use to achieve these purposes are defined in a table that can be found here. This sets out in more detail the legal basis for each process, how we process data, what those data are, how we use them, how long we hold them for, who has access to them and how we dispose of them. We can provide you, on request with a paper copy of the table. If you require this, or any other information regarding your data, you should contact the PCC Secretary ( We only use your personal data for the purpose for which you supply it; if we need to use it for any other purpose we will always seek your consent.

With a very few exceptions you have the following rights with respect to your personal data:

    To request a copy of the personal data that we hold about you

    To request that we correct any personal data found to be inaccurate or out of date  

    To request that your personal data is erased where it is no longer necessary for us to retain them

    Where there is a dispute in relation to the accuracy or processing of your personal data, to request a restriction on further processing

    To object to the processing of personal data where this is based on our legitimate interests (specifically, this relates to advising you of church services and other events or activities)

    If you have consented to our using your personal data for a specific purpose, to withdraw that consent.

    To lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioners Office (0303 123 1113 or at

This privacy notice is given to you as a condition of our holding your personal data. You should note that we are not the data controller for data processed by the benefice, deanery or diocese. You will receive separate privacy notices from these organisations if they hold any of your personal data.
