Woodlands Evangelical Free Church (WEFC) is committed to safeguarding your personal data. This policy statement outlines the principles and practices adopted by WEFC in compliance with the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) 2012 in the collection, use and disclosure of personal data.
The Church shall make every reasonable effort to ensure that individuals’ data it keeps are accurate and complete. The Church relies on individuals’ self-notification of any changes to their personal data that is relevant to the Church.
The Church shall seek consent from an individual to collect, use or disclose their personal data, except in specific circumstances where collection, use or disclosure without consent is authorized or required by law, or assumed individual has consented to collection, usage and disclosure of their personal data in situations where they provided information for obvious purposes.
Consent may be collected through written documentation (e.g. consent form, written note) or electronically (e.g. email consent, electronic forms). In situations that consent cannot be conveniently obtained in written form or electronically, the Church may opt to obtain verbal consent and such process shall be approved by the Data Protection Officer.
An individual may withdraw their consent to the use and disclosure of their personal data at any time, unless such personal data is necessary for the Church to fulfill its legal obligations. The Church shall comply with the withdrawal request, and inform the individual if such withdrawal will affect the services and arrangements between them and the Church. The Church may cease such services or arrangements as a result of the withdrawal.
The withdrawal consent must be in the form of a formal written request addressed to the Data Protection Officer (DPO). WEFC will process the withdrawal request in 30 working days upon receipt of the request.
The Church will retain your personal data for as long as it is necessary to fulfil one or more of the purposes stated above, or as required to meet legal, regulatory or accounting requirements.
The Church shall dispose personal data appropriately with little possibility of data recovery from the process.
Only authorized Church staff are allowed to access personal data. Where in doubt, please seek the advice of the Data Protection Officer.
The Data Protection Officer (DPO) will have oversight of all personal data access or correction requests and ensure that they are processed in accordance with this Policy. Request for personal data access or correction by individuals, including any enquiries and complaints, shall be submitted to WEFC in writing to the DPO at the following address and contact information:
