Why we collect and process your data

Gift Aid

The Gift Aid Officer (Chris Young) has a legal obligation to hold details of your name and address for seven years after you make a donation. HMRC may check that he is doing so.

The Treasurer (David Greig) has access to the Bank Statements and lets Chris Young know how much has been paid.

The Electoral Roll

The Electoral Roll is an administrative requirement. The Church needs to know who is eligible to vote at AGMs. The Electoral Roll Officer (Gillian Greig) keeps a password protected electronic register of names and addresses. The list of names is on display in the Church Porch, but the addresses are only available to the Rector and Electoral Roll Officer.
