GDPR compliance just got easier with our new features

Here are the changes we’ve made to help you become GDPR compliant

Here are the changes we’ve made to help you become GDPR compliant. Insert your privacy policy very easy.

Our data processing agreement is ready

As a church, you need a data processing agreement with all software providers you use to handle personal data. 

Ours is now ready for you to sign.

We’ve just launched a legal section within your ChurchDesk application where all Organisation Administrators can access, review and sign required legal documents, including the data processing agreement.

Collect consent from your contacts

Knowing the people who wish to be contacted and what they want to hear about will allow you to personalise your communication and ensure that more people open and read your emails more frequently.

Collect consent easily through Forms and have it stored automatically on your contacts in People.

Double opt-in
Want to ensure that those who give consent are who they say they are?

Simply enable double opt-in and we’ll send them a confirmation email to ensure that they’re only giving consent to emails that have access to themselves.

Link to your Privacy policy

Like all organisations, you’re obliged to inform and document how you’re processing data, who’s responsible for keeping it safe, how long data is stored, etc. The documentation needs to be easy to find for all that visit your website, submit a form or make a payment.

In ChurchDesk we’ve made this very easy. All you need to do is to…

1. create a web page with the documentation
2. copy and insert the link into ChurchDesk

Now we'll add it where it's relevant – on your website, forms, payment and donation forms – making it easy for your visitors to find it.
