Privacy Notice

Like most organisations with a presence on the Internet, we have a responsibility to make you aware of what data we might collect about you and how we might use that data. We also have a responsibility to ensure that the content of our site accurately represents us and is not adversely compromised by comments that may be posted by you or others.


Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.

Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit or

Comments (if any) made on any page or post on this site by visitors will be reviewed periodically and may be edited or removed at the discretion of the site administrators. Any visitor whose comments are affected in this way may be contacted by the site administrators to indicate why a comment was removed or edited, assuming that contact information included in the comment was valid.

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

How long we retain your data on comments – If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data for comments – if you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Social Media

We encourage open and frank discussion on many topics that may affect the life of the church. However, in a similar way to review and removal of comments on the website, posts and comments on our Facebook page, or our YouTube channel or similar hashtags may be subject to moderation and we reserve the right to remove posts and comments, block posters and followers, and if deemed necessary report posters or followers to the relevant bodies.


Details of events, contacts and other material on this site were correct at time of publication based on information received by the site administrators.

The views expressed are those of the individual contributors and may not represent the view of Bolton Villas Family Church or its Trustees.
