Personal data relates to a living individual who can be identified from that data.  Identification can be by the information alone or in conjunction with any other information in the data controller’s possession or likely to come into such possession. The processing of personal data is governed by the General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”).

  1. Who are we?

The Briery, Ilkley, which is run by the Sisters of the Cross and Passion (registered charity number 1038483) is the data controller (contact details above).  This means we decide how your personal data is processed and for what purposes.

 How do we process your personal data?

We comply with our obligations under the “GDPR” by keeping personal data up to date; by storing and destroying it securely; by not collecting or retaining excessive amounts of data; by protecting personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access and disclosure and by ensuring that appropriate technical measures are in place to protect personal data.

We will only use your personal data as the law permits.  Most commonly, this will be for one or more of the following lawful reasons:

  1. Where we need to perform a contract or agreement with you (or steps are taken by us prior to, but with a view to, entering into a contract or agreement with you) (“Agreement”).
  2. Where we need to comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject (“Legal Obligation”).
