Your personal data - what is it?

Personal data relates to a living individual who can be identified from that data. Identification can be by the information alone or in conjunction with any other information in the data controller's possession or likely to come into such possession. The processing of personal data is governed by the General Data Protection Regulation (the 'GDPR').

Who are we?

Jesus Ministry is a Christian ministry led by a group of key churches, ChristChurch Fulham, St Leonard's Chesham Bois and Chiltern Church. Jesus Ministry is the data controller (referred to in this privacy policy as either "JM", "we", "us" or "our"). This means we decide how your personal data is processed, for what purposes, and are ultimately responsible for your data. Your data is stored in MailChimp or ChurchSuite, cloud-based databases which can be accessed by the administrators at ChristChurch Fulham, St Leonard's Chesham Bois and Chiltern Church. They are data processors and will communicate with you in accordance to your communication settings, about anything Jesus Ministry related.
