We are collecting this information to enable the church to run Joy to the World safely and ensure we can contact you (or other nominated adult) in case of an emergency.

Data Protection legislation allows us to process this information as we regard it as being in the church’s legitimate interest. If you are unable to supply the information requested then we will be unable to accept your child at Joy to the World.

We endeavour to keep all information digitally but in circumstances where a paper copy is required it will be held in a folder which will be kept in a securely locked cupboard in the church office. Only the Ministers and the Joy to the World leaders will have access to this information.

The forms will be destroyed once Joy to the World has finished. If you have ticked the box asking us to keep you informed about future activities we think your child might be interested in attending we will retain your name and email address for the sole purpose of notifying you of such events. We will NOT pass on this information to anyone other than our service providers. You have the right to ask to be removed from this circulation list at any time.

If you are concerned about the way your information is being handled please speak to our Data Protection Officer. If you are still unhappy you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioners Office.
