The Prayer Covenant, Inc.
Privacy Policy

Last Revised: 10/6/2021

The Prayer Covenant, Inc. (collectively with its subsidiaries, “Company,” “the Company,” “we,” “us,” and “our,”) respects your privacy and is committed to protecting your privacy through our compliance with this Privacy Policy (the “Policy”).

This Policy describes:

  • The types of information we collect from you or that you may provide when you use the Prayer Covenant for Children Application (the “App”); and
  • Our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing that information.

This Policy applies to information we collect on the App or in emails and other electronic messages between you and the App.

This Policy does not apply to information collected by us offline or through any other means, including on any other website or application operated by the Company or any third party (including advertising) that may link to or be accessible from the App (for further information, see below, “Third-party Websites and Applications”).

Please read this Policy carefully to understand our practices regarding your information and how we will treat it.  If you do not agree with our policies and practices, then please do not use our App.  By using our App, you agree to the terms of this Policy.  This Policy may change from time to time (see below, “Changes to this Policy”).  Your continued use of our App after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the Policy periodically for updates.

What We Collect and How We Collect It

To ensure that we provide you with the best possible experience, we will store, use, and share information about you in accordance with this Policy.

Information You Provide to Us

Personal Information is any information that can be used to individually identify you from a larger group, such as data including, but not limited to, your:

  • first and last name;
  • email address;
  • telephone number;
  • date of birth;
  • mailing address; and
  • comments or messages provided in free text boxes.

You may provide us Personal Information when you:

  • request information from us;
  • subscribe to our emails; and
  • register yourself with the App.

The information that you provide in each case will vary.  In some cases, you may be able to provide Personal Information via email or free text boxes, such as contacting the Company to request further information.  When providing your Personal Information, please provide only relevant information and do not provide unnecessary sensitive information, such as Social Security numbers, credit card information or other sensitive personal data.  Additionally, we may ask you to create a username and password that should only be known to you.

Automated Information Collection

In addition to the information that you provide to us, we may also collect information about you during your use of the App.  We collect this information using automated technology. This technology may collect information about your behavior and your device, such as your internet address (IP Address), the screens that you have viewed, and the actions you have taken while using the App.  Examples of the technology we use to automatically collect information about you may include:

(a) Embedded Web Links. Links provided in our emails and, in some cases, on third-party websites may include tracking technology embedded in the link.  The tracking is accomplished through a redirection system.  The redirection system allows us to understand how the link is being used.  Some of these links will enable us to identify that you have personally clicked on the link and this may be attached to the Personal Information that we hold about you.  This data is used to improve and understand the performance of our service to you.

Your Choices and Selecting Your Privacy Preferences

While the App and its use of data is relatively structured to meet the requirements of the services provided through the App, you may have the opportunity to sometimes indicate what Personal Information the App collects, process, stores or shares with the Company.  For example, you will have the option to allow or not allow notifications to be sent to you in the form of alerts, sounds or badges.  Please review all options available to you prior to using the App.

We always want to provide you with relevant information that you have requested and do so in a timely fashion.  If we provide subscription-based services, such as email newsletters or in-App messaging, we will allow you to make choices about what information you provide at the point of information collection or at any time after you have received a communication from us while you are subscribed.  Transactional or service-oriented messages are usually excluded from such preferences, as such messages are required to respond to your requests or to provide goods and services, and are not intended for the purposes of marketing.

We will not intentionally send you email newsletters and marketing emails unless you consent to receive such marketing information.  By registering with the App, you will automatically be subscribed to our email newsletters and marketing emails.  You may opt out of them at any time by selecting the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of each email.  Please note that by opting out or unsubscribing you may affect other services you have requested we provide to you, in which email communication is a requirement of the service provided.

Any such communications you receive from us will be administered in accordance with your preferences and this Policy.

Accuracy and Access to Your Personal Information

We strive to maintain and process your information accurately.  We have processes in place to maintain all of our information in accordance with relevant data governance frameworks and legal requirements.  We employ technologies designed to help us maintain information accuracy on input and processing.

Where we can provide you access to your Personal Information in our possession, we will always ask you for a username and password to help protect your privacy and security.  We recommend that you keep your password safe, that you change it periodically, and that you do not disclose it to any other person or allow any other person to use it.

To view and change the Personal Information that you have provided to us, you can log in to your account and follow the instructions in the App, or contact us directly for assistance.

Information of Minors

We do not collect Personal Information from individuals under the age of sixteen (16).  Where a user can provide Personal Information within the App, we always ask for a user’s birthdate before collecting the Personal Information. If the user is under the age of sixteen (16), that user will not be able to provide any Personal Information. We encourage parents and guardians to provide adequate protection measures to prevent minors from providing information unwillingly on the internet.  If we are aware of any Personal Information that we have collected about children, we will take steps to securely remove it from our systems.

How We Use Your Information

The information we gather and that you provide is collected to provide you information and the services you request, in addition to various other purposes, including, but not limited to:

  • Facilitate account creation and the logon process.
  • Assisting you with items such as personalized experiences, facilitation of product usage, and enforcement of Terms of Use.
  • Preventing malicious activity and providing you with a secure experience.
  • Providing service and support for services you request.
  • Providing marketing communications that are effective and optimized for you.
  • Keeping you up-to-date with the latest benefits available from us.
  • Preventing unwanted messages or content.
  • Measuring the performance of our marketing programs.
  • Contacting you about services and offers that are relevant to you.

How We Share Your Information

We may disclose your Personal Information to our trusted third-party business partners in accordance with this Policy.  We work with a number of partners that help us process your requests, deliver customer service and support, send email marketing communications, and provide experiences that you have come to expect from us.  We will share your Personal Information with these third parties in order to fulfill the service that they provide to us.  These third-party partners are under contract to keep your Personal Information secure and not to use it for any reason other than to fulfill the service we have requested from them.

We do not sell or lease your information to any third party.  We will not disclose or share your personal information with third parties for the purposes of third-party marketing to you without your prior consent.

Except as described in this Policy, we will not share your information with third parties without your notice and consent, unless it is under one of the following circumstances:

  • Responding to duly authorized information requests from law enforcement or other governmental authorities.
  • Complying with any law, regulations, subpoena, or court order.
  • Investigating and helping prevent security threats, fraud, or other malicious activity.
  • Enforcing or protecting the rights and properties of Company or its subsidiaries.
  • Protecting the rights or personal safety of Company’s employees.

There are circumstances where the Company may decide to buy, sell, or reorganize its business in selected countries.  Under these circumstances, it may be necessary to share or receive Personal Information with prospective or actual partners or affiliates.  In such circumstances, the Company will ensure your information is used in accordance with this Policy.

Third-party Websites and Applications

This Policy does not apply to websites, applications, or other domains that are maintained or operated by third parties or our affiliates.  The App may link to third-party websites and services, but these links are not endorsements of these sites or services, and this Policy does not extend to them.  Because this Policy is not enforced on these third-party websites or applications, we encourage you to read any posted privacy policy of the third-party website or application before using the service or site and providing any information.

Your California Rights

Pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1798.83, we will not disclose or share your Personal Information with third parties for the purposes of third-party marketing to you without your prior consent.

The App cannot track users over time and across third-party websites or applications to provide targeted advertising.  Therefore, the App does not operate any differently when it receives Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals from your internet web browser.

If you are a California consumer, as defined by the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“Act”), please be advised that the Prayer Covenant, Inc. is a non-profit corporation and does not currently meet the regulatory thresholds of a “business” as that term is defined under the Act and therefore is not required to comply with the Act.  Regardless, all Personal Information will be processed in accordance with this Policy.

Location of Our Services

Our headquarters is based in the State of Ohio within the United States.  We do not warrant or represent that this Policy or the App’s use of your Personal Information complies with the laws of every jurisdiction.  Furthermore, to provide you with our services, we may store, process, and transmit information in the United States and other locations around the world, including countries that may not have the same privacy and security laws as yours.  Regardless of the country in which such information is stored, we will process your Personal Information in accordance with this Policy.

Under the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016, or “GDPR”), individuals in the EU are afforded specific rights with respect to their Personal Information, or “personal data” as defined under the GDPR.  For the purposes of this Policy, the Company operates as a data controller.  Any personal data we collect from you is processed in the United States and under the terms of this Policy.

Any personal data we collect from you is processed in the legitimate interest of our business and providing our services to you as the lawful means of such processing.  You may always withdraw your consent to our use of your personal data as described below.  We will only retain your personal data for the time necessary to provide you the information and services to which you have consented, to comply with the law and in accordance with your rights below.
