Q&A The Electoral Roll and GDPR regulations:
The Electoral Roll contains only the name and address of individual members, and by inference their religious affiliation. The lawful basis for processing this personal data comes from the purposes for that processing, which is restricted to:
1. Determine the eligibility for attendance at the Annual Parochial Church Council Meeting, for various elections and other church related matters
2. To create the Electoral Roll and administer the elections; and
3. To publish the Electoral Roll
Legally, these usage restrictions mean that no consent other than the applicant’s signature on the application form is required for the processing of personal data as listed above.
Our Privacy Notice is also available to read or download here as you wish.
