2. Who are we?
The Oxford Evangelical Pastorate, Registered charity no. 1136848, Company number 07161962 is the data controller (contact details below). This means we decide how your personal data is processed and for what purposes.

- there is no disclosure to a third party without consent.
- We have received your explicit consent so that we can keep you informed about news, events and activities.

We ask our staff not to store any personal data for longer than is necessary and carry out an annual data audit to this end.
5. Sharing your personal data
Your personal data will be treated as strictly confidential and will only be shared with other Oxford Pastorate staff for one of the reasons mentioned above. Unless we receive your consent, your information will never be passed to other organisations except where this is considered necessary for our own operations (e.g. for payroll, data storage, mailings etc.). In such instances there are confidentiality agreements in place that restrict the use of your information to the purpose for which it is provided and ensure it is stored securely and kept no longer than necessary.
We will not transfer your contact details to other charities or to other companies for their marketing purposes. We will not, without your consent, supply your contact details or other personal data to any third party outside the Oxford Pastorate except:
- Where we are required to do so by the law.
