What is a Cookie ?
A cookie consists of information sent as a file by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.
Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third party cookies. Blocking all cookies will tend to have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites.
In addition to cookies there are other types of tracking devices including Ultrasound Beacons and Pixel tags. We do not use these (or any other similar devices) at all.
G P D R Compliance
The GPDR Directive (General Data Protection Regulation) of the EU imposes duties on the users of personal data, and is not restricted to Cookies. 'Personal Data' means any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier. This definition provides for a wide range of personal identifiers to constitute personal data, including name, identification number, location data or online identifier, reflecting changes in technology and the way organisations collect information about people.
We only collect data for the following purposes:
(1) so that users can subscribe to the Church's email newletter.
(2) so that users can make an application to hire rooms at the Church
The data sought is explicit, is collected on an 'opt in' basis, and is limited to what is required to process your enquiry or application. Any subsequent contact with you will be by means of email or telephone, and will be limited to dealing with your enquiry or application.
