Safeguarding, Privacy & Cookies

Church Growth Trust recognises the importance of protecting and safeguarding our staff and all those we work with. We hold and regularly review our Protecting people and Safeguarding Policy.

Church Growth Trust is a charity based at The Barn, Baines Lane, Seaton, Oakham, Rutland, LE15 9HP.  The charity processes “personal data” and/or “Special category data” (as defined in UK data protection legislation) as part of the contracted services, in line with its charitable legitimate interests and/or its own administration.  Data are held securely for as long as they remain pertinent to the purpose for which they were collected and/or if there is a statutory retention period.  Once no longer required, all data are destroyed by secure means.

Data may be shared with third party organisations as part of the provision of the services, in the legitimate interests of Church Growth Trust, for administrative purposes and/or if we are required to do so by UK law.  We cannot accept liability for the processing by any third party conducted outside our remit.

In accordance with legislation we have completed a cookie audit on our website.  We use these internet files with Google Analytics to monitor and improve our website.

None of the above affects your rights under the legislation, in particular your right to access the data we hold on you.  If you wish to request a copy of your data, please submit it in writing/email to the Charity.  Please include enough information to enable us to identify you and search for appropriate data.

If you are dissatisfied with this policy, have queries about our data protection procedures or wish to lodge a complaint, please contact the charity in the first instance.  Thereafter you have the right to submit a complaint to the Supervisory Authority, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO):
