Your personal information and privacy
Onewa Christian Community collects personal information for various reasons, for example:
- to maintain a role of members and associate members
- to enable communications with members, visitors and stakeholders
- to support pastoral care and community activities.
We treat personal information respectfully. When we collect personal information from members or visitors for any reason, we state clearly what the information is for. We will keep personal data safe and have systems in place so that in providing information, a person is agreeing to its use for the stated purpose.
People may request that we keep their contact details confidential. We will comply with that request. We will not share personal information about any member or visitor with third parties without prior permission unless a company is acting on our behalf, with protections in place (e.g. a firm that processes communications for us). Or we could share information if the law requires or permits disclosure.
