This website endeavours to comply with the requirements of the Data Protection Act and Child Protection law. To this end, we undertake to hold on our computer files only the minimum amount of personal data necessary to enable our users to communicate with our webmaster and selected officers of the Cumbria District of the Methodist Church.

Under the 1998 revision to the Data Protection Act, photographs of people whose identities are clearly recognisable are regarded as containing personal data and therefore fall under the provisions of the Act. We undertake that no recognisable photograph of any person will be published on this website without the permission of the person concerned.

We also undertake not to publish the photograph of any child under the age of 16 without the written permission of his/her parent or guardian. Where a photograph of a child under 16 is published, we undertake not to publish his/her name or to otherwise identify him/her.

We undertake to remove any specific photograph displayed thereon, at the request of any person appearing therein, or of the parent or guardian of any child under 16 years of age appearing therein. We will do this even if the subject of the photograph is not, in our opinion, recognisable and even if permission has previously been obtained.

We provide hypertext links to sites on the Internet which are operated by other people. Using an external hypertext link means that you may be leaving the Site and we therefore take no responsibility for and give no warranties, guarantees or representations in respect of linked sites.

We make no warranty that the Site is free from infection by viruses or anything else that has contaminating or destructive properties.

Unless otherwise stated, the content of this Site does not necessarily reflect the views of The Methodist Church.
