Special Categories of Personal Data

We will endeavour to keep the amount of Special Categories of Personal Data collected from you to a minimum. However, in order to perform our contractual obligations and legitimate interests we do collect the following Special Categories of Personal Data through our websites when taking guests bookings, prayer requests and through enquiry forms for those interested in joining the community or becoming an Associate and where information is shared by SLG Press with SLG if the nature of an enquiry indicates a response from SLG is required rather than SLG Press. On our guest booking form we do ask whether you have any mobility problems or special dietary requirements. When you respond to these questions you may be providing what is known as health data under the GDPR and health data is deemed to be Special Categories of Personal Data. We require this information in order to ensure that we meet your needs when you visit us;

  • When making prayer requests you may well supply with us with information about your religious beliefs and religious beliefs are deemed to be Special Categories of Personal Data under the GDPR;
  • If you complete the joining us form you are able to provide “Further information about yourself” and if you provide information on your religious beliefs that will mean that we are collecting Special Categories of Personal Data from you;
  • When making an enquiry about becoming an Associate again you are able to provide “Further information about yourself” and if you provide information on your religious beliefs that will mean that we are collecting Special Categories of Personal Data from you;
  • SLG Press’s contact us section of the website also provides a section allowing you to tell us about you and if you tell us about your religious beliefs we will collect Special Categories of Personal Data from you;
  • Our Fairacres Chronicle subscription can be renewed online. This is our twice yearly publication with news, reviews and articles, amongst other things, and you will notify SGL of what association you have, which may mean that religious belief information is collected; and
  • You are free to tell us information about you on our “contact us” form. We do not ask that you tell us about Special Categories of Personal Data but if you may volunteer this information possibly in the context of religious belief.
