Privacy and cookies


Some personal data is collected through the site when you voluntarily choose to provide us with personal data, e.g. in applying to live or work at Lee Abbey London, or submitting an enquiry through the contact form. The legal basis for us holding this is “contract”. The data is stored securely on the web server for 60 days (enquiries) or 1 year (applications) and used to provide the response or service you have asked for. It may be kept off the website for longer if required. We archive information securely where appropriate in standard record-keeping practice. You can always ask to see a copy of the data we hold or ask us to remove it if there is no longer a legal reason why we are required to retain it.

The server also stores your IP address for security reasons, on the legal basis of legitimate interests, for a limited time as part of its standard access logs, in order to protect the website. These logs are never viewed by people except in rare circumstances to diagnose problems and keep the server running smoothly and securely.


We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.
