To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small text files called cookies on your device.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small, information-only text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.

How do we use cookies?

Third-party cookies

We are intending to use Google Analytics. Why? Using third-party cookies, we can record anonymous information to find out where our website visitors come from (e.g. a direct link or via a search engine result, and what words were used in the search), which pages are visited and how long our visitors stay on each page. The information recorded is completely anonymous and will help us to improve the website.

2. Who are we?
The PCCs of the Parishes of Bradfield, Bucklebury with Marlston and Stanford Dingley – known collectively as ‘2bsd’ – are the data controllers (contact details below). This means they decide how your personal data is processed and for what purposes.

The PCCs of Bradfield, Bucklebury with Marlston and Stanford Dingley are the data controllers for each parish. Collectively they are known as 2bsd, and the Church Office (contact details below) acts as data processor for all three parishes. The PCCs, as 2bsd, use iKnowChurch and Mailchimp as data processors.

5. Sharing your personal data

Your personal data will be treated as strictly confidential and will only be shared with other members of the church in order to carry out a service to other church members or for purposes connected with the church.

6. How long do we keep your personal data1?

We keep data in accordance with the guidance set out in the guide “Keep or Bin: Care of Your Parish Records” which is available from the Church of England website [See footnote 1 for link].
