The wording in square brackets should be reviewed.

Check the content. You should assume that if a particular use of personal data is not correctly identified and explained in this Fair Processing Notice, it is unlikely that you will be able to continue such use of personal data. Therefore, you must review this in detail to ensure that your uses of personal data are appropriately reflected. Further, check all information set out in this template fair processing notice.

Please note:

We have drafted the below so that it can easily be slotted onto a website

The numbers indicate the list level e.g. when you click on one of the above, all Level 1s will be revealed. Clicking on a Level 1 will reveal the Level 2s under that Level 1 and clicking on a Level 2 will reveal the Level 3s under that Level 2 and so on.

The wording in this notice will need to be updated (i) when the UK Data Protection Bill receives Royal Assent (depending on any changes which occur in the House of Commons); (ii) if and when the ICO produces any further guidance on privacy notices; and (ii) shortly before Brexit.


Where to include this notice

This Notice should be hosted on your website. A link to the notice titled "Privacy Policy" should appear at the bottom of the homepage.

General notes:

WP29 transparency guidance states that the wording used in a privacy notice should not be phrased in ambivalent/ abstract terms or leave room for different interpretations; language qualifiers such as "may", "might", "some", "often" and "possible" should also be avoided. Market approach is to be as clear and specific as possible, however the use of language qualifiers cannot be entirely avoided.

WP29 transparency guidance on transparency emphasised the importance of making it clear which purposes and legal grounds would apply to each type of data subject and the contents has been grouped by data subject. Therefore an individual would only click on the section that applies to them and could see at a glance, how their personal information is used, where it has come from, the legal ground ATL relies on to process it and who it is shared with.

This notice has been constructed for use on a website to incorporate click throughs. Where data subjects are provided with a paper copy or ask for a paper copy, you will only need to provide them with the relevant entry from section 3 (and all other sections).

1. About us

1

Allchurches Trust Limited ("ATL") ("we", "us", "our") is a registered independent charity and one of the UK's largest grant-making Trusts. We grant funds to support the repair, restoration and wider community use of churches and cathedrals of all denominations and we support charities, schools and colleges. Our funds come from our ownership of the Ecclesiastical Insurance group and we are the parent company of the Ecclesiastical group of companies.

In providing grants, we need to collect and process data so that we can review your application for a grant and to administer funding for any successful grants. This makes us a "data controller".

If you are unsure about who the data controller of your personal information is, you can also contact us at any time by e-mailing us at compliance@allchurches.co.uk or by writing to Data Protection Officer at Allchurches Trust Limited, Beaufort House, Brunswick Road, Gloucester GL1 1JZ.
