Contact Us form
If you use the contact us form on the website, you provide your name and email address so that we can respond to your question, request or feedback. The information you provide will only be used to address your contact submission.
We operate a Livestream / Online Meeting service on the CIL Website (called 'CIL Meet'). This service enables Christadelphian Ecclesias and Organisations to securely and privately broadcast meetings and events. and to facilitate online meetings or discussions.
You do not have to participate in CIL Meet when you use the CIL Website, you can still use the other website facilities. However if you do participate in or publish to a livestream / online meeting, how your data is shared is set out below.
There are currently three types of CIL Meet Room, and the way your data is managed for each type is described below. The room type is shown on the CIL Meet page and the organisation / ecclesial pages where the rooms are listed.
If you are joining a 'Google Meet' room, then your online presence will be shared with other participants of the Google Meet session. Your email address may be used to create the Google Meet session but is not shared with the other participants in the room. Please see "sharing your personal data" below.
If you are joining a 'Microsoft Teams' room, then your online presence will be shared with other participants of the Teams session. Your email address, first and last name may be used to create guest access on the Microsoft Office 365 tenancy that is controlled by the CIL. Other participants in the room will not see your email address. Please see "sharing your personal data" below.
If you are joining a 'Zoom Meetings' room, then your online presence will be shared with other participants of the Zoom Meeting session. No personal information is transferred from the CIL Website to Zoom in order to facilitate this.
Some rooms are available to access to those who do not have a CIL Website account via the use of a room key issued to the individual by the room owner, and a special web address used to access the room with the room key. No personal data is collected in the validation of the room key.
When you are forwarded to Google Meet, Microsoft Teams or Zoom Meetings you will need to either log in using Google, Microsoft or Zoom authentication or provide your name in order to join the online meeting. The information provided by you at this point is directly with Google, Microsoft or Zoom and not with the CIL.
Some CIL Meet rooms have a telephone dial in facility provided by the CIL. Your phone number is processed by the CIL Meet system and may also be displayed or partially displayed to other participants in the meetings. CIL Meet room owners should make sure participants joining only by telephone are aware of this when providing the room phone number to them. Please contact the CIL Meet room owner regarding this if you have any concerns.
Analytics is in place on all CIL Meet meeting types to collect participant information. We record the following information from the meeting providers in order to report on the usage of CIL Meet and to improve the service:
- Your name (or phone number if you have called in), if available, as displayed in the meeting (you can set this when you join the meeting, eg when Zoom asks you for your name)
- The date and time you joined a meeting
- The duration for which you joined the meeting
- The meeting code generated by the meeting platform (specific to Google Meet, Teams or Zoom)
- The CIL Meet host identifier for the meeting (related to the Ecclesia or Organisation that is running the meeting)
- Your email address if you have provided this to Google Meet, Teams or Zoom and if made available by that platform to us.
We may from time to time offer registration for events on the website, for example for gatherings or youth weeks. We collect your name, home address, date of birth, phone, email and travel arrangements in order to coordinate the event capacity and to contact you about the event or to let you know should we need to cancel or reschedule the event. This information will be deleted from our website servers within a month of the event completing, and we will ask you personally if you wish contact to be maintained with you so that you can be invited to other similar events.
If you join our WhatsApp groups then both we and the other members of those groups will be able to see your WhatsApp name and your mobile phone number. You agree not to share this information as described at https://www.isolationleague.org/whatsapp
If you join our Telegram Channels then we will be able to see your Telegram name and potentially your mobile phone number as channel owners. Other followers of the channels will not be able to see this information.
Sharing your personal data
Your first name, last name, email address and user id is shared with MailChimp, who provide email distribution services and are acting as a Data Processer on our behalf. We share this data in order to send you website service announcements, and if you opt-in, regular email updates.
MailChimp uses its affiliates and a range of third party sub-processors to assist it in providing the services.
Should your CIL Website account be cancelled your information is removed from the MailChimp service, including their affiliates and third party sub-processors.
We, MailChimp or MailChimp’s affiliates and third party sub-processors will never disclose or sell your personal information to third parties. We will only use your information for the purposes outlined above.
In order to facilitate the CIL Meet online meeting service for Google Meet room types we have partnered with Google LLC. Your email address may be used when a meeting event is created using the Google Calendar API (Application Programming Interface). The calls to the API are authenticated via Google OAuth2 and sent using secure HTTPS communication. The event is created using a CIL controlled google account provided for the organisation / ecclesia. The calendar event attendees are only visible to those with access to the google account (typically the room owners). This is simply used to enable secure access to the online meeting.
In order to facilitate the CIL Meet online meeting service for Microsoft Teams room types we have partnered with Microsoft Corporation. Your email address, first name and last name may be used (depending on the room setup) to provide you with guest access on the CIL Meet Microsoft Tenancy. This is simply used to enable secure access to the online meeting.
We do not share your personal data with Zoom to create the online meetings.
CIL Meet Analytics (the meetings you join) and CIL Website Analytics (the web pages you visit) are facilitated by the Google BigQuery and Looker Studio tools. This information is available to the CIL Committee and in the case of CIL Meet, may be made available to the CIL Meet organisation / ecclesial contacts for the meetings they host.
