Types of data we collect
- Website use
It can be helpful for us to know how many people are accessing our website and which pages are most used. In order to do this we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.
- Mailing Lists
As part of the registration process for our email or postal communications, we collect personal information. We use that information for several reasons: to keep you up to date with Thrive news, events and prayer requests; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are up o date. We don’t rent or trade email or address lists with other organisations or businesses.
We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to contact you by email. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice.
You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails.
- Registering or payment for Thrive events
We collect, process, store and use personal data when you book a ticket to an event including your name, address and email address together with payment information. We may also collect personal data that you give to us about other people if you register them to attend an event.
