Data Consent and Privacy - communicating with you

The privacy of your data is of the up most importance to us.

Hull Minster is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy and complying with the principles of the General Data Protection Regulation. This policy sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us through your use of our website, will be processed by us.

We are committed to processing information about you fairly and in a transparent manner and the aim of our policy is to provide you with sufficient information for you to be able to understand what we are doing with your data. If you are unsure how we are handling information about you or you think we could improve our privacy information please let us know.

GDPR and why we are using the legitimate interest exception
The General Data Protection Regulation (‘’GDPR’’) comes into force with effect from 25th May 2018. To comply with the new regulation, we are required to obtain your consent for you to remain on our mailing list unless we have concluded that we may rely on the legitimate interest exception.

What is a person of legitimate interest?
Through being a member of our Minster community, hiring or performing at the Minster, the launch our Transformation Project or engaging through fundraising initiatives, we will have occasionally contacted you on your business e-mail address and postal address to provide information on the latest news, events and fundraising activities, and other communications that may be of personal or professional interest to you or and your clients/customers. We will continue to do so on the grounds of legitimate interest and believe that in so doing it would be in-line with your reasonable expectations and that the relatively small number of communications from us is not likely to have an unwarranted impact upon you.

What data do we hold?
Your data is held on secure systems which is regularly reviewed for security and integrity. It may include your name; the name and address of your home/business address; and your contact details – telephone and email or other details you have provided. We will not share, sell, or distribute your data to any third party and will only use it for communicating with you in the manner you have specified as being acceptable.

We would very much like to stay in touch with you
If you would like to continue hearing from us you need do nothing further, your details will be retained. If, however you would prefer not to hear from us in future please contact Hull Minster, Hull Minster Parish Office, 10a King Street, Hull HU1 2JJ or  Please note that all processing of your personal data will cease once you have withdrawn consent, other than where this is required by law, but this will not affect any personal data that has already been processed prior to this point.
