  1. How we share information

5.1 We will only share Users’ personal data if:

(a) we are working with partners whom we have carefully selected to carry out work on our behalf, such as service providers and sub-contractors (for example, IT services providers and providers of technical, payment and delivery services) to perform any contract we enter into with them. The kind of work we may ask them to do includes delivering services on our behalf, answering questions about us and any services we provide, carrying out research or analysis to assist us in our mission and processing credit card payments. We only choose partners we trust and only pass personal data to them where they have undertaken to keep your personal data secure. We do not allow these partners to use your data for their own purposes or disclose it to other third parties and we will take all reasonable care to ensure that such partners keep your data secure; or

(b) we are legally required to do so, e.g. by law or by an order of a court of competent jurisdiction; or

(c) there is a medical emergency in which a User’s personal information must be shared for benefit of their health and/or wellbeing.

We will not sell Users’ information. We will not share Users’ information with other organisations other than as stated above.

  1. Legal basis for processing information

We rely on various legal bases to justify our processing of Users’ personal data, as set out below.

(a) The Users have given their consent to the processing of their personal data for the specific purposes mentioned above. The Users may withdraw their consent to this processing at any time by contacting us using the contact details set out in the “Contact and complaints” section of this Privacy Policy below, but this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing of their personal data which was carried out before they withdrew their consent.

(b) The processing is necessary for our legitimate interests. These legitimate interests include the operation of the Website and related services, answering questions about us and any services we provide, carrying out research or analysis to assist us in our mission and processing credit card payments.

(c) The processing is necessary to perform a contract to which the relevant Users are parties or to take steps that they have asked us to take before entering into a contract, such as registering for an event which we are hosting or purchasing a CANL service, media resource, information pack, or merchandise.

(d) The processing is necessary for us, as the data controller, to comply with our legal obligations, such as sharing personal data where we are legally required to do so, e.g. by law or by order of a court.

  1. Where we transfer and store information

7.1 The personal data that we collect from Users may be transferred to and/or stored at destinations outside the UK. As such, adequate protection for such personal and sensitive personal data will be ensured. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that Users’ personal data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy and applicable law.

7.2 All information that Users provide to us is stored on our secure servers and/or on the servers of trusted third parties we have engaged to host various IT systems for us. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using up-to-date technology.  Where we have given Users (or where they have chosen) a password which enables them to access certain parts of our Website, they are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We advise them not to share this password with anyone.

7.3 Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect Users’ personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to our Website; any transmission is at Users’ own risk. Once we have received personal information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

7.4 Our mission is to be a welcoming community, where all can encounter the transforming love of Jesus through art and related writings. We will keep Users’ information only for as long as they engage with us in any way which could be justified as being a part of the above mission, and only as long as we need it:

(a) to administer Users’ relationship with us;

(b) to comply with the law; or

(c) to ensure we do not communicate with Users who have asked us not to.

To assist us in this process, we will review on a regular basis the personal data of Users that we collect and hold to ensure that such data is only kept for an appropriate length of time. This does not affect Users’ right to withdraw their consent to process at any time (where we are relying on consent as the basis for processing the data) by contacting us using the contact details set out in the “Contact and complaints” section of this Privacy Policy.
