What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Booking forms

When you fill out the form to book a seat at an event, the information you submit including name, phone number, email address, and comments are sent to the email address of the church that is sponsoring that event. This is so that they can contact you if necessary in relation to that event.

You will also receive an email asking to confirm if you would like to be added to our MailChimp mailing list. This mailing list is used to inform our subscribers about other upcoming Christian Science lectures in southeast Queensland. If you do not wish to receive these emails, simply delete the email and you will not be added to the mailing list.
