Guideline Leaflet L13: Data Protection

If a church holds personal data either on a computer or in a paper-based filing system it must follow the rules set out in the Data Protection Act and, from 25 May 2018, the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). This leaflet explains what this means for churches. It should however only be taken as general guidance. If churches have questions that fall outside the scope of this leaflet then we would advise that you contact the Information Commissioner’s Office for their advice.

Please note that this leaflet has now been revised to take the new GDPR into account and will continue to be updated as further information becomes available.
