Disclosure of Your Information

We do not disclose identifying information to any third parties, except under the following circumstances:

  • Your information may be available to third parties providing computer system administration services, maintenance, or other services to our Website, networks, servers, communications, or databases. However, under no circumstances do we permit such third parties to use that information for other purposes.
  • We may provide your information to governmental agencies or other third parties as required by law and regulations, including responding to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal processes.
  • Your information may be provided to third-party service providers to assist us with our operations and to provide services to you.

Internal Disclosure

We will share your personal data internally within UAD Ministries to help combine the personal information covered across the different aspects of UAD Ministries sites and our other products and services to help provide services to you in a manner that is personalized and useful to you and others. For example, we can personalize potential services to recommend to you using cookies or similar technologies that track what functionality you have already opted to receive.

Service Providers

We may disclose personal information that we collect or you provide as described in this Privacy Policy to contractors, service providers, and other third parties we use solely to support our sites (such as cloud hosting, maintenance, analysis, audit, payments, fraud detection, communication, and development). These third parties will have access to your information as reasonably necessary to perform tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose it to others or use it for other purposes.

Content Providers

We utilize certain third parties to provide content on our sites. We do not share the personal information of users with these third parties. We may, however, provide these third parties with analytics concerning the use of their content using de-identified and anonymized data.

Legal Process and Subpoena

It is possible that we will need to disclose information about you when required by law, subpoena, or other legal processes. We may dispute third-party demands when we believe, in our discretion, that the requests are overbroad, vague, or lack proper authority, but we do not promise to challenge every demand. We may also need to disclose your information if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (i) investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or to assist government enforcement agencies; (ii) enforce our agreements with you; (iii) investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations; (iv) protect the security or integrity of our sites; or (v) exercise or protect the rights and safety of Unleashing Arrested Development Ministries, our users, personnel, you, or others. We also reserve the right to confidentially disclose personal information we have about you in connection with a potential or actual merger or acquisition such as the sale of all or substantially all of our assets.

Your Requests

Certain laws provide for requests concerning personal information. To make such a request with respect to your personal information, you may send us an e-mail to adminteam@uadministries.org. You may also contact us at: Unleashing Arrested Development Ministries, Inc., attn.: Website Support, P.O. Box 471401 District Heights, MD 20753. When contacting us, please indicate your name, address, email address, and what personally identifiable information you request to be accessed, corrected, or removed. We may decline to process requests if we cannot verify the requestor's identity, if we believe the request will jeopardize the privacy of others, if we believe the request would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect, or for a similar legitimate purpose. We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights under applicable law. We do not charge a fee to process or respond to a verifiable request concerning your personal information unless it is excessive, unduly burdensome, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

If you ask that we modify or delete some or all of your personal information, we will retain your personal data if reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations (including law enforcement requests and obligations concerning financial records and tax returns), meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, maintain security, prevent fraud and abuse, enforce our agreements or fulfill any others requests from you (for example, to opt-out of further messages or for a copy of your data). Additionally, third-parties addressed in this policy may have their own policies with respect to data retention and deletion. We have no control of the information you have shared with others through one of our sites after you close your account or asked to delete information or attempted to delete your account yourself. Your information and content you have shared may continue to be displayed in the services of others (for example, search engine results) until they refresh their cache.

Accessing, Reviewing, and Changing Your Information

If you are a registered User, you can see, review, and change most of your Registration Information by signing in to your account. Generally, we will not manually modify your information, because it is very difficult to verify your identity remotely. You must promptly update your registration information if it changes or is inaccurate.

Once you upload or post any content (or participate in a discussion), you may not be able to change or remove it. Upon your request, we will close your account and remove your personal information from view as soon as reasonably possible, based on your account activity and in accordance with applicable law.

We retain personal information from closed accounts to comply with the law, prevent fraud, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce our agreements, policies, and guidelines, and take other actions permitted by law.

Your Posts

Our Website has a wide array of functionality, including streaming video, creating prayer requests, and identifying and communicating with your UADMinistries.org teams. Some UADMinistries.org sites may allow you to publish, distribute and display certain content, which we will refer to as “posted” and the content as “posts.” Posts may be made on public areas of websites and social media accounts you access through our sites or may otherwise be transmitted to third parties. Please keep in mind that if you disclose personal information in a public manner whether through collaborative postings, social media, message boards, or other public online forums, this information may be collected and used by others. We cannot control the actions of other users or third parties with whom you choose to share your posts. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that your posts will not be viewed by unauthorized persons, nor do we accept any liability associated with your posts.

 

Church Online

UAD Ministries allows users to access its services through an interactive platform called Church Online. Where you use Church Online, we collect your first name, last name, nick name, email and phone number to create your Church Online account. We also collect your age, gender, and time zone, date of birth, and city and state where you provide it. Where you create a Church Online profile, the automatic data collection technologies referenced above are used to log your IP address and phone carrier to help associate your uses of your Church Online account from session to session and to better facilitate Church Online chat communications. In addition to the content and posts noted above, Church Online allows users to chat with other users and create other shareable posts, such as emojis and reactions to certain content, where you “raise your hand” in Church Online, and what content you choose to stream and access when using this site. We store this information in association with your Church Online account for so long as you do not delete the content.

Security

The Unleashing Arrested Development Ministries, Inc. will use reasonable security tools (e.g., encryption, passcodes, physical security) to protect information against unauthorized access and disclosure. However, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your information that they collect from the Website. Therefore, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we cannot promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.

Third Parties

This policy addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect or receive from you through the Website. If you disclose your information to third parties, including to other Users or visitors, through our Website or other means, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them. The Unleashing Arrested Development Ministries, Inc. does not control the use of your information by third parties (except where they act on our behalf), and you are subject to the privacy policies of third parties where applicable.

Automatic Data Collection Technologies (“Cookies”)

We use “cookies” (small files placed on your computer) on certain webpages to help analyze and enhance the use of the Website. By agreeing to our Privacy Policy, you agree to the use of cookies and similar technologies (for example, web beacons, pixels, tags, and device identifiers which we collectively refer to as “cookies”) as described in this policy. If you use our Website without changing your browser or device settings to disable cookies, we assume that you consent to receive all cookies provided through our Website.

We use cookies to recognize you and/or your device(s) on, off, and across the different applications of our sites and devices. Cookies help to facilitate the best possible user experience of our sites as they allow us to recognize you and maintain your user preferences from session to session, help us keep your account safe, and generally improve the functionality of the products and services offered through our Website. They also help us ensure that profile information is used in association with the correct profile. Importantly, we do not use cookies to facilitate interest-based ads from third parties for third-party goods or services.

We log usage data when you use our Website, including when you view or click on content, browser type, browser language, perform a search or request, the date and time of your request, install an update, seek new functionality, or use one or more tools offered through our sites. We use cookies to identify you and log your use. When you access or leave our sites, we receive the URL of both the site you came from and the one you go to next. We also get information about your IP address, proxy server, operating system, web browser and add-ons, device identifier and features, and/or ISP or your mobile carrier. If you use our sites from a mobile device, that device will send us data about your location based on your phone settings and access you have granted our Website as discussed below.

We store this information and information pertaining to your use of our sites in connection with your profile. We do not share any of your personally identifiable information along with your device identification or location without your explicit permission. We advertise on third party sites such as Facebook and Google and use third party software development kits (“SDKS”) to attribute a download of an Unleashing Arrested Development Ministries application on to the advertisement placed on the third-party site. We may provide these third parties with aggregate information concerning ads placed on their sites and downloads that result from those ads.

We use this information to provide a tailored Website experience for you and to communicate with you more effectively. The information is also collected to determine the aggregate number of unique devices using our sites, track total usage, and analyze usage data to provide you with a better experience and to improve the quality of our services. If you do not want us to collect this information you should cease use of our sites.

Although most internet browsers accept cookies by default, you can control these types of technology through your browser settings and similar tools and agree to refuse all cookies altogether. If you refuse to accept cookies by activating the appropriate setting on your browser or smartphone, you may prohibit us from delivering the full capability of our sites.

Please note that we cannot regulate other sites, content, or applications of third-parties, which may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. They may use this information to provide you with interest-based (behavioral) targeted content. We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly.

WIFI and GPS

Some of our sites use GPS information to identify when you are near one of our physical locations. You will be given the opportunity to provide consent for us to use this information when you first download or begin to use our sites. If you provide that consent, we use that information to enable push notifications related to interactions with our Unleashing Arrested Development Ministries, Inc. sites and physical locations. You also have the ability to manually initiate a GPS location search to identify whether you are at one of our physical locations. When using certain Unleashing Arrested Development Ministries, Inc. sites, you can provide us with your GPS location through your browser, zip code, or city, which will be processed by a third-party search engine. We do not store this information outside of your device. Once your particular session of use of the feature ends, we will cease to have access to your GPS location unless you use the feature again. After your first use of this functionality and consent for us to use your GPS location, we will assume we have that consent unless you revoke it through the settings of your mobile device.

We also collect and use the wireless (or “WIFI”) permissions of your mobile device to determine if you are connected to a WIFI or cellular network. This information is used to provide an optimized user experience by providing higher resolution content to a user who is on a high-speed WIFI connection rather than a cellular network. WIFI permissions are also used for casting content with Chromecast and similar devices. This information is not shared by Unleashing Arrested Development Ministries, Inc.
