Will Christ Church International share my personal information with anyone else?
We will keep your information within Christ Church Interantional except where disclosure is required or permitted by law. Generally, we will use your information within the Church and will only share it outside where you have requested it or given your consent. However, we may share with third party sites (e.g. Facebook, Google, Google Analytics, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Mailchimp, Vimeo and Stripe) some data, with appropriate security measures to enable fulfilment of the purpose of collection. Those parties may process information, fulfil and deliver orders, process card payments and provide support services on our behalf. The Church requires these third parties to strictly comply with its instructions and the Church requires that they do not use your personal information for their own business purposes, unless you have explicitly consented to the use of your personal information in this way. We do not store financial details obtained through any online transactions. All card payments are handled by our service provider (Stripe/Paypal) who encrypt card information sent from our website. We may share your personal information internally (i.e. with other Christ Church ministries, departments in other locations within the UK). Personal information, held electronically, is stored in a secure server or secure files. See the section on “How will Christ Church International use the information it collects about me”. What if I am aged under 13? If you are aged 13 or under, then we will need consent from your parent/guardian before you can use our services.
