Third Party Service Providers working on our behalf:

We may pass your information to our third-party service providers, agents subcontractors and other associated organisations for the purposes of completing tasks, and providing services to you on our behalf (for example to credit or debit card payments).

When we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for any other purpose.   

CLME will never release your information to third parties for commercial purposes (e.g. for marketing), unless you have requested us to do so, or we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.

  •  Maintain regular monitoring of databases

  • Approximately every two years, undertake deep cleanse of the database.   

CLME will keep some records permanently if we are legally required to do so.  

CLME may keep some other records for an extended period of time. For example, it is current best practice to keep financial records for a minimum period of six years to support HMRC audits.  In general, CLME will endeavour to keep data only for as long as we need it.  This means that we may delete it when it is no longer needed.

What is the legal basis for processing your personal data?

Most of our data is processed because it is necessary for our legitimate interests, or the legitimate interests of a third party. We will always take into account your interests, rights and freedoms.

Some of our processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation.  We may also process data if it is necessary for the performance of a contract with you, or to take steps to enter into a contract.  An example of this would be processing your data in connection with the hire of church facilities.

Where your information is used other than in accordance with one of these legal bases, we will first obtain your consent to that use.
