We use the information you provide when you register or when you contact us through the site or by email for running the website effectively and for keeping in touch within the Cromer Church family. Registration on this site is open to all members of the Cromer church family. Each application is checked and verified by the Website Administrators prior to approval. You should contact the Website Administrator if your name may not be familiar to them. You will need a valid email address in order to register.
We take care to comply with the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998 and with other relevant UK and EU laws. We understand the issues and concerns surrounding the use of personal data, and aim to maintain very high standards. We are accountable to you at all times, and if we do inadvertantly get something wrong, we will put it right as quickly as possible.
We do not collect individual personal information about visitors to our web site but we do collect summary usage data. Our site uses software that records 'non-personal' information including the geographic location of your ISP, the type of browser and operating system you use, the pages you visit and your IP address. We protect this information and use it only for statistical purposes: to analyse traffic to the web site, to help us improve the service offered and to report, in summary form, on website usage and trends to the PCC.
We take seriously the misuse of email addresses or other online identities (for example, by pretending to be someone you are not), the misuse of email or other online communication technologies (for example, by trying to flood or otherwise disrupt our website, or by sending unlawful or offensive messages) and the distribution of illegal or offensive material. We will always co-operate with any lawful investigation relating to these, or to any other offences, carried out by the police, by an Internet Service Provider or by any other person or organisation authorised to do so under UK or EU law. This may mean disclosing personal information about you if we are required to do so.
If you register for any of our services or add your name to any of our groups we will update (or provide a facility for you to update) or remove you from the database at once, if you ask us to.
We make some documents available for download that do contain telephone numbers and, occasionally, some personal information Where possible, we limit access to these to registered users, unless the information is already available in other places. Where it is necessary to allow contact with named individuals (for example, in connection with forthcoming events or activities) we provide a dedicated 'Contact Us' page to allow them to be contacted while protecting their privacy and their email address.
We welcome feedback about our website, including feedback about this policy.
