When processing personal data for the purposes explained in this notice, we do so for the purposes of delivering our services to you. In addition, where we may provide you with details of other products and services which we believe may be of interest to you, we rely on our legitimate interests in maintaining relationships and/or communicating with you as an existing recipient of our services, or as a volunteer about the services we provide, or those we think might be of interest to you, or local and parish events. We consider that our legitimate interests abide by the law and the legal rights and freedoms of our business and volunteer contacts.

Only the people who need to process personal data for the purposes mentioned above have access to your personal data.
We do not send your personal data outside the EU/EEA ourselves. However, the servers on which we operate may at times need to allow third parties to access your personal data when they perform services on their behalf, such as to maintain and support their IT systems. Any transfer of data outside the EU/EEA would be made in line with data protection laws.
HOW LONG WE WILL KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DATA
Your personal data will be saved for the specified purposes mentioned above for as long as you are a contact to us, unless you have specified that you do not want your personal data retained after your involvement with us.

We are committed to the safety and privacy of children who visit and participate in our services.
We encourage parents and/or guardians to play an active role in their children’s online experience at all times.
