  • The Bible League Trust takes very seriously the collection, storage and management of your personal data.
  • We collect your personal data in order to be able to send out copies of the Bible League Quarterly that you have subscribed to.
  • We store your data on a password protected computer, to which only the Secretary and a nominated Trustee have access.
  • Paper documents which have your data, are kept securely. Only the Secretary and a nominated Trustee have access to this.
  • We only keep your data for as long as you are a subscriber, except where we are required by statutory legislation to keep records for a fixed amount of time, such as for the Charities Commission.
  • If there comes a point when you no longer give permission for us to have your data, files will be deleted, and paper records securely destroyed. The exception to this would be where we are required by statutory legislation to keep records for a fixed amount of time, such as for the Charities Commission. Following that fixed time, records will be securely destroyed.
  • We will only use your data for the reasons that you have indicated. We will not pass on your data to other third party organizations.
  • If you give us permission we will contact you with information about Bible League Meetings taking place in your area.
  • You can request at any time to have your contact preferences altered or removed.
  • You can request at any time details of your data that we hold.
  • You can expect that if such a request is made we will take reasonable steps to check the identity of the person requesting this information.
  • From time to time we will contact our subscribers checking that they are happy about their current personal data preferences. If we do not hear from you, then we will continue with the last known preference.
  • If you receive the Bible League Quarterly (BLQ) as a gift subscription, it is because a friend / acquaintance has provided us with your details. The first copy of the BLQ that you receive will have a form about your data preferences. If we do not hear from you, we will assume that you are happy and the magazine will be sent, and your data securely stored.
  • If you have any questions relating to your data and its storage, then please make contact with us at the Bible League Trust.
  • This policy will be reviewed on an Annual Basis or sooner as legislation dictates.

What is a Cookie?

Most websites you visit will use cookies in order to improve your user experience by enabling that website to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’).

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences, and generally improving your experience of a website.

Cookies make the interaction between you and the website faster and easier. If a website doesn’t use cookies, it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site.

Some websites will also use cookies to enable them to target their advertising or marketing messages based for example, on your location and/or browsing habits.

Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (‘first party cookies’) or they may be set by other websites who run content on the page you are viewing (‘third party cookies’).

What is in a Cookie?

A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. It allows a website to remember things like your preferences or what’s in your shopping basket.

What to do if you don’t want cookies to be set?

Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.

Google Analytics’ cookies

Every time a user visits our website, Google Analytics generates anonymous analytics cookies. These cookies can tell us whether or not you’ve visited the site before. Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies, and if you don’t, we generate new ones. This allows us to track how many individual unique users we have, and how often they visit the site.
