What information do we collect?
At The Wall we only collect information which is necessary for us to document your answered prayer and keep you up to date with the progress of The Wall.
Please note that all answered prayers are kept anonymous, unless you have given us explicit permission to use a picture of you alongside your answered prayer, on our various communication channels.
The information we gather includes:
- Your full name
- Email address
- Postal address (if you have requested a prayer certificate in the post)
- Details of your answered prayer
- Telephone number (in case we need to contact you in relation to your donation or answered prayer submission).
You will receive information from us in two instances:
- You have opted in to our mailing list or requested that we add you to our mailing list via a face-to-face or telephone conversation with a member of our team, prayer form, website, text message or email.
- You have expressed ‘legitimate interest’ via an action you have taken in the past such as donating to our kick-starter or submitting an answered prayer
How do we use your information?
We only collect the information required to keep you up-to-date and informed and discard all other information that isn’t required for us to do this. For example, we don’t access, process or keep your payment information when you make a donation. We only keep the information for Gift Aid if you have opted in to Gift Aid with your donation.
Here is an overview of where we collect data and how it is used:
Answered prayer forms
When you complete and submit an answered prayer form, we will contact you and share your answered prayer in accordance with the permissions you have selected on your prayer form.
Newsletter – when you sign-up to our newsletter on The Wall website you will receive our monthly update newsletter. On occasion we will also send you breaking news, that we believe will interest you. An example includes when we secured the land.
If you have sent a direct email to The Wall requesting to be added to our mailing list, you will also receive monthly updates about The Wall’s progress.
If you have submitted your email address to receive a free download such as ’12 scriptures on remembering the goodness of God’ you will receive your download via email and we will request your permission to send you other relevant information related to The Wall.
Donations via text, website, phone
We do not process or hold your payment information, we will however keep your name, email address (and postal address if you have requested to be sent a certificate) on file so that we can send you information in relation to your donation.
If you have given us your contact details at an event and given us express permission to contact you, we will send you our monthly email newsletter and other updates in relation to The Wall’s progress.
