• Privacy Policy


    This privacy and cookie policy aims to give you information on how The Clewer Initiative collects and processes your personal data through your use of this website, including any data you may provide through this website or otherwise.

    It is important that you read this privacy and cookie policy together with any other privacy notice or fair processing notice we may provide on specific occasions when we are collecting or processing personal data about you so that you are fully aware of how and why we are using your data. This privacy and cookie policy supplements any other policies and notices and is not intended to override them.


    The Archbishops’ Council (referred to in as either “Archbishops’ Council”, “we”, “us” or “our” in this privacy and cookie policy) is the data controller who determines the purposes for which, and the way in which, your personal data is processed. It is also responsible for looking after your personal data pursuant to all relevant legislation and to whom you should liaise if you have any questions or concerns about your personal data.

    The Archbishops’ Council is a body pursuant to section 1 (1) of the National Institutions Measure 1998 whose objects are to co-ordinate, promote, aid and further the work and mission of the Church of England. Pursuant to section 1(2) of the National Institutions Measure 1998 the Archbishops’ Council is established for charitable purposes, charity number 1074857. We are registered with the Information Commissioner, registration number Z6034304.

    We have appointed a data protection officer (“DPO”) who is responsible for overseeing questions in relation to this privacy and cookie policy. If you have any questions about this privacy and cookie policy, including any requests to exercise your legal rights, please contact the DPO using the details set out below.


    If you have any complaints or queries about matters affecting your privacy, or any other general data protection matters, then please do let us know by contacting us as set out above and we will endeavour to resolve the problem. In any event you have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues. The ICO can be contacted on their helpline number which is 0303 123 1113 between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday, or by other contact methods as set out on their website. Please go to their website at www.ico.org.uk for more information.


    The data protection law in the UK changed on 25 May 2018. Although this privacy and cookie policy sets out most of your rights under the new laws, we may not yet be able to respond to some of your requests (for example, a request for the transfer of your personal data) straight away as we are still working towards getting our systems ready for some of these changes.

    It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please do let us know if your personal data changes.
