My name is Andy Moyle, based in King’s Lynn, UK,  and I am the developer of the WordPress Church Admin plugin and I own and run this website

General Personal Data

By default this website doesn’t not collect any identifiable data about you. I use Google Analytics and Mouseflow to track how people in general interact with the site to improve it. I can only see what country the visitor is from.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Contact form

Our contact form stores the data you provide -name, email and message. This is deleted once dealt with.

Support Forum

If you register for the support forum, your name, email address (and optionally your website) and a hash of your password are stored on the website database to enable you to login and post on the site.

Email newsletter

If you subscribe to our email newsletter, which is generally once a week, you will need to leave your first name and email address. Our email provider is MailChimp who keep your name and email securely.

Online Chat

We use Tidio chat to enable website users to get online support. If you are a logged in user of this site, your name and email address become part of the chat to enable efficient communictaion. Tidio’s privacy policy is here.

How long we keep your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.


If you sign up for the app, we store your church website address and your email address to enable the app to work for your church members. We have no access to any data of your user’s use of the app. Each app user login’s to their own church website which provides the data for the app. Each church is responsible for their own personal data policy. The app requires a login fro address details by default and other parts of the app can be set to login only too.

We don’t not pass on, give away, or sell your personal data

Subject Access Request

If you would like to see what personal data we hold about you electronically and on paper, we have a legal duty to comply and will happily do so. You will need to confirm your identity with a photographic form of I.D. like a passport or driving licence. We will only be able to process requests made with photo I.D. We will respond within the statutory time limit of 1 month.
