The Divine Mercy Apostolate is fully compliant with EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and is committed to EU data protection requirements. We recognise the need for appropriate protection and management of any personally identifiable information (personal information) you share with us. Meaning, we don’t collect and process users’ personal information beyond what is legally required for the functioning of our services.
Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, a home or other physical address, an email address or other contact information; whether at work or at home. In general, you can visit our web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself.
DATA SUBJECT RIGHTS
GDPR compliance requires data subjects be granted certain rights. What follows is not an exhaustive list, but those rights that are relevant to the collection, processing, and storage of personal data on www.divinemercyapostolate.co.uk.
RIGHT TO ACCESS
Data subjects reserve the right to request and obtain confirmation that data is or is not being collected on them and if so, exactly what data is being collected, how, where, and for what purposes. This data can be manually requested and provided in an electronic format free of charge.
RIGHT TO BE FORGOTTEN
Should data subjects at any time wish to withdraw their consent and no longer allow The Divine Mercy Apostolate to store their personal data, this request can be manually made. Please be sure to include the full name (including any prefixes) and email address of whom the data is in reference too, so that all data relating to the data subject in question can be accurately removed.
Similar to the Right to Access, Data Portability requires that data subjects are able to request, obtain, and/or transfer possession of collected data at any time. As mentioned above, this data can be manually requested, and provided in an electronic format free of charge. Should the data subject wish to transfer the possession of the data stored by The Parish of St Benedict’s Ealing, please be sure to also include the full name (including any prefixes) and the relevant contact information relating to the individual or organisation whom you wish the data to be transferred to.
Should The Divine Mercy Apostolate encounter a breach/unauthorised access of personal data that is likely to “result in a risk for the rights and freedoms of individuals”, The Divine Mercy Apostolate will ensure that a notification is made within 72 hours of becoming aware of the breach.
COOKIES AND OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES
Some of our web pages utilise “cookies” and other tracking technologies. Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to ‘remember’ you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a ’session cookie’) or for multiple repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors and perform essential functions. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as ‘first-party cookies’), or by other websites who serve up content on that site (‘third party cookies’).
To protect your privacy, we have adopted the following principles:
Where The Divine Mercy Apostolate collects personal information on the web, we intend to post a purpose statement that explains why personal information will be collected and whether we plan to share such personal information outside of The Divine Mercy Apostolate or those working on our behalf. The Divine Mercy Apostolate does not intend to transfer personal information without your consent to third parties who are not bound to act on our behalf, unless such a transfer is legally required.
You may choose whether or not to provide personal information to The Divine Mercy Apostolate. The notice we intend to provide where we collect personal information on the web should help you to make this choice.
If you choose to have a relationship with The Divine Mercy Apostolate, such as a contractual or other business relationship or partnership, we will naturally continue to contact you in connection with that business relationship.
Wherever your personal information may be held within The Divine Mercy Apostolate or on its behalf, we intend to take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the personal information that you share with us from unauthorised access or disclosure.
We are committed to protecting your right to privacy. The Divine Mercy Apostolate respects your privacy and we will use our best efforts to ensure that the information you provide remains private. Information provided will only be stored on computers based in the UK.
For control of our website, our website logs IP addresses, which is the automatic number assigned to your computer when you surf the web. The IP address allows us to anonymously track visitors’ usage on our website. Your IP address is not connected to any personally identifiable or online contact information, like a name and address, so you remain anonymous at all times.
