We take the security of your information seriously and will not share your information with third parties unless they are providing us with assistance in relation to church activities such as hosting our website, providing building facilities and professional services (e.g. accountants) – in those circumstances we will seek to enter into confidentiality agreements that are consistent with this policy and limit others’ use or disclosure of information shared. 

King’s Gate may also share personally identifiable information about you with advisors and/or authorities under the following circumstances:

  • to respond to court orders or legal process, to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims and if in our judgment in such circumstances disclosure is required or appropriate;
  • if we believe it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person or as otherwise required by law.

By using the Site and submitting information through it or providing it to us by any other means, you consent to the collection and use of your personal information by us as described above. 

What Are The Legal Grounds For Us Processing Your Information?

We rely on the following legal bases to use your information:

  • with your consent or explicit consent;
  • for the purposes of our legitimate interests or a third party;
  • to comply with our legal obligations.

Where you are contacted by us based on information you have shared with us, we will aim to provide you with an opportunity to opt-out of receiving such further communications at the time you are contacted. Where we are relying on your consent to use/process your information, you can withdraw this at any time by contacting us via the Site or at our registered address referenced below.
