What information do you ask for? 

When you register on the SHINE website, you will give us your name, the name and address of your school and a contact email address.

Why do you need this information?

We use this information to give you access to the SHINE resources including the videos.  We will use the supplied email address to keep you informed about SHINE news, resources and ideas to help you plan.

The Shine partners may, very occasionally,  wish to contact you regarding other news, resources and events that may be of interest to you.  You can change your preference regarding these communications at any time by editing your ‘User Profile’.

We will not sell or share your personal information with 3rd parties or charities for marketing purposes.

Who do you share my information with? 

You will see when you sign up for SHINE, that this is a joint project run by Scripture Union Northern Ireland, Crown Jesus Ministries, Logos Ministries International and Scripture Union England & Wales and Scripture Union Scotland.  Staff from each organisation with a restricted password can access the information you supplied. SHINE is a partnership project so although a representative from each organisation can access your information, it will only be for the purposes specified above and for supporting you in delivering SHINE. You can find more information about each organisation by visiting the ‘Who are we’ page in the ‘About’ section of the SHINE website.

We will not sell or share your personal information with 3rd parties or charities for marketing.

How is it kept secure?

The registration information may be downloaded on to password protected, and in most cases encrypted, laptops. The spreadsheet will be secured with a password.  This data will then be used to contact you via email using Microsoft Outlook, Apple Mail or other secure email applications.

The SHINE team may also use Mailchimp to get in touch with you (for further information on Mailchimp, please see our Third parties section below).

The web forms are kept on the SHINE website (for more information on the SHINE website, please see our Third parties section below) and are only accessed by members of the SHINE team who have been given the password .

For how long do you retain my data?

We only need your details to contact and support you before, during and after your SHINE events.  Your contact details will be deleted on an annual basis.  This is why you will be asked to re-register each year you run SHINE.
