“Personal data” is any information about a living individual which allows them to be identified from that data (for example a name, photographs, videos, email address, or address). Identification can be by the information alone or in conjunction with any other information.

            The processing of personal data is governed by [the Data Protection Bill/Act 2017 the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (the “GDPR” and other legislation relating to personal data and rights such as the Human Rights Act 1998].

 

St. Giles’ holds personal information, including contact details, and the PCC is responsible for its security and compliance with relevant legislation.

Subject Access Requests

 

Everyone has the right to find out if an organisation is using or storing their personal data. The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) offer advice about requesting this information at https://ico.org.uk/your-datamatters/your-right-of-access/. To request details of the data held by the PCC email the Data Protection Compliance Officer (data_protection@stgileschurch.com).

 

Data Security

 

A data breach is a breach of security leading to ‘accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, personal data’. Example breaches are –

  • Unauthorised disclosure of email addresses when emails are sent to the wrong recipient or CC’d when the blind copy BCC should have been chosen.
  • If the office PC were stolen the thief would have access to sensitive information about congregation members.
  • Similarly if a memory stick containing a copy of St. Giles’ is lost, personal data may become available to the person finding it.

If anyone suspects there has been a data breach, they must report it to the DPCO (dataprotection@stgileschurch.com) as soon as possible. All data users must take sensible precautions by ensuring security software is up to date, computers are password protected and memory sticks encrypted.

A message from Reverend Katharine Rumens

Dear Friends,
 

As we say to one another, these are strange times and we are having to find a new pattern of living and praying together. The Archbishops have directed that all churches are to be shut for a season. This does not mean that prayer will cease as we develop new ways to pray together. 
 
Please look out for your neighbour. Thank you to those who have volunteered to do shopping and errands for the socially isolated. Let me know if you need help and the churchwardens and I will ask someone to be in touch with you.
 
Finally, we know there is an unprecedented demand on food banks at the moment. We have been asked not to hold a collection outside Waitrose. Instead please put donations of food and toiletries in the box by the checkout or make an online donation to www.hackneyfoodbank.org.uk

 
At this time
With prayers

Katharine

 

Thursday 4 June 13.00 to 13.30 Private Prayer and Reflection 

Instead of meeting in church we wil continue to pray together from 13.00-13.30 on the first Thursday of the month.  It remains a set time to pray for our community and the wider world, knowing that others are praying with us. Our silent prayers conclude at 13.30 with all saying the Lord's Prayer. See the Services page for our monthly biblical text from the lectionary and suggestions for prayer. 

 

Cleaning Angels

The monthly sessions on the first Thursday of the month have been cancelled for the time being.  

 

Installation of new lighting

The new lighting system cannot completed for the time being because of a delay in the delivery of light fittings from Italy and the closure of the church.
