We collect your contact details so that we can send you communications by post from time to time with details of our services for people facing homelessness in your area, so that you can let your fellowship and community know about them, and to give you the opportunity to support us in prayer, financially, providing volunteers, or in other ways you might like to.

It is a legitimate interest of WHC, as a Christian charity working in your area, to make your church aware of our services, and to indicate various ways you might like to support our work.

If you agree, we will in addition send emails regularly with updates, prayer requests, opportunities to fundraise and volunteer and news of appeals that we think will interest your fellowship.

If at some point you would prefer not to receive our communications at all, you can contact us at [email protected] or on 01494 447699 mentioning “unsubscribe communications”.

Details and your rights

WHC may store your data and (where applicable) send out emails using a company which is located in another country but which offers safeguards as required by UK law.

Mailchimp is our email provider, and they are interested in improving their services by better understanding the people they are emailing. So they sometimes work legally with third-party sources, such as public databases or social media platforms, to acquire information about you such as demographic, location or device data, and to learn about your use of social media websites, page view information and search results and links.

WHC will not share your details with any other organisation unless legally obliged to do so.

If you hear from us by post, we will retain your data until about two years after our last contact with you. If you agree to email, we will ask you to renew your consent within about two years from the date you provide your consent.

You may contact WHC at [email protected] or on 01494 447699 or at 8 Castle St, High Wycombe HP13 6RF to request to access your data or to have it corrected. In addition, you may restrict or object to our use of your data; have it erased; or withdraw your consent to email. If you request your data be erased, we will stop contacting you and keep a note of your details (unless you tell us otherwise) on our register of individuals who would prefer not to be contacted, so that we do not contact you in the future if your data are collected again.

To complain about our handling of your data, contact the Information Commissioner's Office (0303 123 1113  [email protected])
