Privacy Policy

Woodford Wells Ministry Trust trading as Nationwide Christian Trust (“NCT”) takes the privacy and security of our clients very seriously. NCT provides this Internet Privacy Statement because our customers have a right to know what information we collect, how it is used, and how it is protected. This policy may be amended from time to time and was last updated: April 2018.

Information Collection and Use

Registration for NCT Customer database

In order to receive emails sent by NCT you must first complete a signup form (a) via reception, (b) at an event, (c) by dropping your business card in at NCT, or (d) by registering online through our website, or (e) by opting in to receive emails when making an event booking.

During registration, you are required to give contact information (such as first and last name and email address). NCT collects personally identifiable information from our users during the initial signup process as well as during surveys or preference requests. We use this information to contact you regarding the work of the Trust and to process donations and to reclaim Gift Aid donations. Additional Information such as dietary preferences, preferred location, interest in offers and events or group bookings enable us to send relevant offers based on your interests.

You may also be given the opportunity to provide your mobile phone number during the sign-up process or through a separate email from NCT. By providing your mobile phone number, you are agreeing to receive text (SMS) messages on your mobile phone. You have the option to provide demographic information (such as gender and postal code) to us; we encourage you to submit this information, so we can provide you with a more personalised experience. If you elect not to provide such demographic information, you may still participate in our offerings. Communications may include offers, newsletters and updates on the Trusts work as well as for fund raising.

Personal data processed by NCT shall not be kept for longer than is necessary for the intended process or purposes and as long as a customer wishes to remain in our database. Customers have the right to request that their information be deleted, once the request has been verified the data will be deleted within 30 days.

In compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, NCT requires all children under age thirteen (13) to obtain parental consent to join any of our lists. All terms of our privacy policy apply to children under 13.

Uses of Customer Information

Your email addresses are used only to send email that was requested. NCT follows an opt-in permission-based email and text message (SMS) enrolment policy. NCT will NOT rent, sell, trade or loan our clients’ lists to anyone.

All emails contain links on how to unsubscribe from the client list, how to request your data be updated or deleted. All SMS messages contain information on how to unsubscribe from the client list. You may leave our list at any time for any reason. If you have any questions or feel that you received unsolicited email, or an unsolicited SMS message please contact us here.

NCT will use personally identifiable information to contact you when responding to email support requests and other direct requests for information from NCT. To protect your privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.

Forward to a Friend

If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about an email subscription to which you subscribe, we will ask you for your friend’s name and email address. This process will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to join the email list. NCT stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our referral program, after which the names collected are removed from the database.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

NCT will NOT share our lists to anyone without the customers’ consent.

If NCT merges or is combined with any other organisation, or if NCT transfers all or substantially all of its assets or operations to another organisation, it may disclose information it collects from you to the other organisation so that the other organisation can continue to provide services to you. The other organisation will be bound by this policy.

Service Providers

We may use third parties to provide data processing of our list membership. When you sign up for an email list, we may share your enrolment information with our data processing company so that the third party can provide the service. Such third parties are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose.

NCT may use a third-party vendor to fulfil promotions on behalf of NCT. Any third-party vendor to NCT is contractually prohibited from using your information for any other purpose.

Disclosure Disclaimer

We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to (a) protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on the Trust; (b) protect and defend NCT’s rights or property or the users of our services, and (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of our services or the public.
