Your Privacy

We respect your privacy and want to communicate with you in a way that suits you, in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation 2016 (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018). Your privacy is important to us and this policy explains how we use your personal information and keep it secure.

What is personal information?

Personal information covers any data that enables us to identify you as an individual e.g. name and email address. 

How do we use your personal information?

We only use your email details for the purpose of your membership login and to communicate with you about information that is relevant to you and your constituency/community. 

Lumino is an initiative of Bible Society, so if you already have a Bible Society account, you can log in using your existing account details.

When you supply personal information to us, we only use this information for the purpose for which it was given and ensure that it is kept securely.

We may ask you to take part in surveys, or to give feedback, to help us learn and improve how we work.

Lawful basis for processing your information

The lawful basis we use for processing your information, could be:

Contract – where you have signed up for membership of Lumino.

Consent – where you have clearly given permission to receive our Lumino email newsletter.

How long do we keep your information?

We will keep your information for as long as you have a Bible Society account. You can close your account on the Bible Society website. When we no longer have a lawful reason to keep your data, we will delete it. 

Do we share your personal information?

We do not share your details with third parties, unless it is necessary to do so, e.g. your email address is shared with Campaign Monitor, a service provider that we use to send emails.

Your information will not be passed to third parties for them to use for their own marketing purposes.
