  • We aim to give all Harbour Chapel’s contacts, including customers, prospects and suppliers, clear choices as to whether or not we retain data about them.
  • We aim to respond as quickly as possible to any requests from individuals on what data we hold on them, aiming to deal with these requests in 7 days. These are Subject Access Requests (SARs) and we are aware that we have one month to respond to a request from an individual.
    Data breaches will be reported to the ICO within 72 hours of discovery.
