GDPR Advice for Churches

Sometimes incorrect data is held about individuals and when this happens it is important that data subjects (i.e. church members) have the ability to have the information corrected. This forms part of GDPR and is called the Right to Rectification.

It should be clear who data subjects should contact if any data is wrong. This could be in your church privacy policy. 

It is important that when someone has informed you of incorrect information, that it is updated within 1 month. If it is particularly complex then you will be allowed up to 2 months, however this is an exception.

If the data has been shared with anyone else then these parties need to be informed. Examples could be HMRC if there is a Gift Aid claim.
