The Christian Enquiry Agency (Registered Charity 1152730) collects information about users of the website Christianity.org.uk:
- to respond to requests for information about the Christian faith from individuals;
- to safeguard enquirers who are vulnerable or under 18-year-olds and those who communicate with them;
- to help improve the service we offer.
The CEA is absolutely committed to protecting the privacy of those who contact us. An enquirer will only receive email or post from a professional or volunteer associate of CEA if specifically requested. Postal or email addresses, or other information offered, will never be shared with a third party without specific consent, except possibly in the case of disclosed abuse in accordance with our Safeguarding Policy.
What information do we request on the Christianity.org.uk website?
We collect information from people who contact us through the ‘Find Out More’ facility of Christianity.org.uk. If they apply for printed information we request a name and postal address. If they ask a question about the Christian faith we request an email address. These addresses and the content of conversations are kept securely.
Occasionally we quote from correspondence in our publicity when someone has spoken positively of the service we provide, but that information is never attributed to a named person and could never be traced to its author.
Who will have access to information from the supporters of the CEA who use this website?
The CEA makes the same commitment regarding the privacy and security of all personal data to all supporters: people who pray, people who donate money, and people who receive the CEA Newsletter whether by email or by post. The full account of how this achieved is in the CEA Data Protection Policy which can be requested by email firstname.lastname@example.org , and which will be reviewed annually by the CEA trustees. All paid and volunteer associates of the CEA are bound by this policy, as are the staff of the Deo-Gloria Trust that provide computer and office support to the CEA.
The database of CEA supporters is kept separately from the data from enquirers, and is only accessible to the Digital Evangelist and administrator of the CEA. The CEA treasurer is the only person with access to personal data related to financial donations and Gift Aid. If you have questions about your personal data held by the CEA, or wish to have it deleted, please email email@example.com .
