Collection of your personal information
We usually collect personal information (including sensitive information) from you directly. This is mainly through your completion of application and registration forms. This collection may be in person, over the internet, via email or through a telephone conversation with you.
Generally we only collect and disclose personal information about you (or sensitive information with your consent) for the purposes it was given to us and when reasonably required for the performance of internal functions. Generally, we only disclose personal information to overseas parishes for the purpose of recording sacraments in accordance with Church law.
Access and correction
If you ask, in most cases we must give you access to the personal information we hold about you and take reasonable steps to correct it if we consider it is incorrect. We will try to make this process as simple as possible.
