Privacy Notice

Bromley Reform Synagogue is committed to the respect and security of your information.

We are registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office, reference number ZA911317.

Whilst there are activities, such as the newsletters, to which you can sign up and unsubscribe yourself, there are some activities which require us to hold and share your information, to operate smoothly, contact you for updates, or organise events.

Information about you that we may collect and use:

Your name, address, contact details, next of kin if emergency details are needed, marital situation, family and ancestry information (re conversions, marriages, etc) and ways we can assist you.

We will ask for your Consent to use and share your information concerning the following activities:

Caring Community

Fundraising activities if communicating about them by email

Cheder – parental consent needed

There are other activities that Bromley Reform Synagogue operates, and for which we also need your information to operate, involve and update you efficiently.

However, we will operate on the GDPR Lawful Basis of Legitimate Interest to use your personal information. This means that using your information in this way benefits you (because you get to be involved without being bothered about consenting all the time) and it benefits the Synagogue (because we will not have to ask you for consent for common sense situations where your information needs to be shared with other members or organisations, ie if there is a situation that require your input) .

Those are:

Volunteering (excluding Caring Community matters)


Fundraising activities if communicating by post

General Synagogue activities (helping with Kiddush, Shabbat, Festivals, Courses, etc)

Membership and Subscriptions

We will always store and use your personal information in a safe and responsible manner and will keep your information for as long as best practice or the law allows.

Please note that certain legal situations, ie safeguarding and Police or Government investigations, do not require your Consent.

Your rights:

  • You can revoke your consent at any time, when applicable
  • You can ask to see a copy of the information we have about you. 
  • If you think the information we have about you is wrong, or has parts missing, you can ask us to correct it.
  • If you think we have information about you that is no longer needed, you can ask us to delete it (but we will not be able to delete it if the law says it is still needed).
  • You can ask that we stop some of the ways that we use your information, even if you don’t want it to be deleted.

You can request any of this to be done by contacting the Data Protection Officer, Aurelie Stutz via Janet Burlem at

You can register complains or queries about the use of your information in the same way.

You also have to contact the Information Commissioner’s Office in case of any concern.
