What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

If you complete one of the contact or enquiry forms on our website, all information will be sent directly to a member of Old Rectory staff. The details you provide – such an email address, telephone number(s), postal address and postcode – will only be used to contact you in relation to your enquiry topic.

You will not be added to any other mailing lists, unless you request this. The details you provide through the forms will not be visible on the website. Once you have completed a form, emails will be sent to your email address and the relevant Old Rectory email address.

Cookies

Cookies are text files placed on your computer by a website to collect standard internet log information and information about the behaviour of visitors that visit a website.

We will use the information we collect as a result of you accepting a cookie from our site to track your use of the website and to compile reports on the use of the website by all visitors.

You can set up your browser not to accept cookies, and the websites above tell you how to remove cookies from your browser. In a few cases, some features of our website may not function fully as a result.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

We use a third party provider, Google Analytics and MonsterInsights, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. For example, what you look at or access, traffic data, location data, weblogs and other communication data, information about your computer, including – where your browser provides this – your IP address, operating system and browser type. This information is anonymised, and we will make no attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website

We sometimes use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our e-newsletters. Through MailChimp we gather statistics around email opening and clicks, which are not personally identifiable.

Who we share your data with

We may use any feedback you give us in public communications. But we will not do so in such a way that people would know it was from you – unless we obtain your permission.

If we share information about you with other organisations that help us deliver services to you this will always be under the same conditions as we are bound by under this privacy policy.

We may share information about you with law enforcement agencies or other organisations or individuals if the law obliges us to.

The information about you we use to demonstrate the impact and reach of our work to funders is anonymised. So we will not share anything that identifies you personally.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

The information you send to us through online forms will be sent via email to a member of Old Rectory staff. Your personal information will not appear on the website, it will only be sent to us via private and secure email.

Your contact information

Your contact information includes your email address(es), telephone number(s), postal address and postcode. When you provide us with this by completing an online form it will be sent to an Old Rectory email address. We will then use your contact information to contact you about your enquiry topic. We will not use it to contact you about other topics or advertisements, unless you request to be added to any mailing lists.

Your contact information will not be shared with any third parties.

Additional information

How we protect your data

What third parties we receive data from

We use a third party provider, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. For example, what you look at or access, traffic data, location data, weblogs and other communication data, information about your computer, including – where your browser provides this – your IP address, operating system and browser type.

Fundraising, donations and legacy pledges 

As Epworth Old Rectory is a charitable organisation that depends on its supporters, we may invite you to make a donation, or become involved in fundraising activities/campaigns. This will only be done where we have your permission to do so.

Occasionally, we may invite some supporters to attend special events to find out more about the ways in which donations and legacy gifts can make a difference to specific projects and to our cause. We will also send you updates on the impact that you make by supporting us in this way, unless you tell us not to.

If you make a donation, we will use any personal information you give us to record the nature and amount of your gift, claim Gift Aid where you have told us that you are eligible and thank you for your gift. If you interact or have a conversation with us, we will note anything relevant and store this securely on our systems.

If you tell us you want to fundraise to support our cause, we will use the personal information you give us to record your plans and contact you to support your fundraising efforts.

Charity Commission rules require us to be assured of the provenance of funds and any conditions attached to them. We follow a due diligence process which involves researching the financial soundness, credibility, reputation and ethical principles of donors who have made, or are likely to make, a significant donation to Epworth Old Rectory.

As part of this process we will carry out research using publicly available information and professional resources. If this applies to you, we will remind you about the process when you make your donation.
