    possession or likely to come into such possession. The processing of personal data is governed by the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (the ‘GDPR’).
  2. Who are we?
    The Vestry members of St Salvador’s Church, Dundee (collectively) and the Clergy members
    (severally) are each a data controller (contact details below). This means they each decide how your
    personal data is processed and for what purposes.
  3. How do we process your personal data?
    The Vestry members of St Salvador’s Church, Dundee and the Clergy comply with their obligations
    under the GDPR by keeping personal data up to date; by storing and destroying it securely; by not
    collecting or retaining excessive amounts of data; by protecting personal data from loss, misuse,
    unauthorised access and disclosure and by ensuring that appropriate technical and organisational
    measures are in place to protect personal data.
    The Clergy will use your personal data in order to provide pastoral care to you and to administer
    records such as the Communicants’ Roll and the Adherents’ Roll.
    The Vestry uses your personal data:
    • to administer membership records

    • to inform you of news, events, activities and services running at St Salvador’s Church and in the
    broader Scottish Episcopal Church
    • to share your contact details with the diocesan office so it can keep you informed about news in
    the diocese and events, activities and services that will be occurring in the diocese and in which
    you may be interested
    • to share your contact details with the diocesan office if you are appointed to a role within the
    congregation or diocese for the purposes of church administration

    • to keep you informed about this ministry, including training opportunities.
  4. What is the legal basis for processing your personal data?
    Explicit consent of the data subject.
    This is so that we can keep you informed about news, events, activities and services and other events
    throughout the Scottish Episcopal Church via, e-mail, telephone and text; and share any sensitive
    personal data with the clergy, the Vestry, Diocesan authorities and General Synod Office, for
    example, the fact that you have joined the Communicants’ Roll.
    If you are an employee of the Vestry and the processing is necessary for carrying out obligations
    under employment, social security or social protection law, or a collective agreement.
    Processing is carried out by a not-for-profit body with a political, philosophical, religious or trade
    union aim, provided:
    o the processing relates only to members or former members (or those who have
    regular contact with it in connection with those purposes); and
    o there is no disclosure to a third party without consent.
    Processing is necessary for our legitimate interests.
    This means that we can process your personal data if (i) we have a genuine and legitimate reason;
    and (ii) we are not harming any of your rights and interests.
    Our legitimate interests include: processing for the purposes of church administration; processing
    your gift aid donations; fundraising; pastoral care, and running the Food Cupboard Ministry.

    personal data will be shared more widely.
    We may also share your information or disclose it to third parties where required to comply with any
    court order or other legal obligation or when data is requested by government or law enforcement
    authorities, to enforce any agreements, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of us, members of
