A message to the Parishioners and Friends of St George’s on GDPR

Dear Parishioners and Friends of St George’s

St George’s is currently – rather belatedly – updating its processes for storing data in line with GDPR. We hope, by the end of the process, not just to comply with GDPR but also to improve our communication with you by creating email lists for different purposes such as publicising services, concerts etc. We had planned to complete this during April and May 2020. In the current circumstances we have decided to try to make as much progress as possible since this can be an online exercise for most people.

To this end, we need to ask for a completed form for EACH MEMBER OF YOUR FAMILY INVOLVED IN ST. GEORGE’S IN ANY CAPACITY, e.g. each parishioner, everyone connected with the Parish Choir (choristers, adult members, parents and assistant organists), each Sunday Club member and parents, members of the Chamber Choir. In other words, for a couple with two childrenin the choir, we need to have four forms –one for each of the four people. For those who are not parishioners but who attend from time to time, please complete a form if you would like to be contacted about relevant events such as special services and concerts. It should only take a couple of minutes to complete.

Parents/guardians: if your child is under 13 years of age, you should complete the form on their behalf. However, please do not include email addresses or mobile phone numbers of persons under the age of 13. If you are unable to complete the form yourself, your nominated representative can complete the form on your behalf. For parishioners who are not internet users, there will be an opportunity to complete a hard copy when normal parish life resumes in the future. We are trying to get as many online responses as possible at the moment. If you have any queries, please email sgcbdata@gmail.com

The link to the form is HERE: https://bit.ly/sgb-gdpr

Thank you very much for your co-operation.

Keep well,

The Select Vestry
