Immediately following our 2012 launch, Joshua Generation Global Apostolic Center began using digital ministry to leverage technology to reach people to reclaim Eternity's mandate on Earth and restore order and power to God's church through the organics of the Scriptures and divinely inspired life application.
Our Website is one of the digital tools we offer to serve our members and visitors by connecting them to one another and equipping them on their journey to become a mature devoted follower of Jesus Christ.
Our digital resources and services are created with great care and intentionality. They are designed to help as many people join the new creation generation in Christ and learn how to live God’s agenda in a safe and secure manner. We built these tools as an act of service and ministry to serve you. You are able to choose what you access, share, and with whom. Your data is yours. Joshua Generation Global Apostolic Center does not sell your information. We also do not share it with others without your consent.
This policy describes how Joshua Generation Global Apostolic Center collects and uses information from Users and Visitors to the Joshua Generation Global Apostolic Center’s website (the “Website” or “jggapostoliccenter.org”).
The information the Joshua Generation Global Apostolic Center may collect and store includes the following:
We use reasonable efforts to accurately store and record your data accurately when it is submitted to us through our Website. We do not assume any responsibility for verifying the ongoing accuracy of identifying information after it has been submitted to us.
Use of Your Information
Our primary purpose in collecting information is to provide a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized experience for users of the Website. We use such information to:
Disclosure of Your Information
We do not disclose identifying information to any third parties, except under the following circumstances:
We will share your personal data internally within JGGAC to help combine the personal information covered across the different aspects of JGGAC 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.
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 Joshua Generation Global Apostolic Center, 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.
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@JGGApostolicCenter.org. You may also contact us at: Joshua Generation Global Apostolic Center, 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.
Our Website has a wide array of functionality, including streaming video, creating prayer requests, and identifying and communicating with your JGGApostolicCenter.org teams. Some JGGApostolicCenter.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.
JGGAC 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.
The Joshua Generation Global Apostolic Center 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.
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 Joshua Generation Global Apostolic Center 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 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 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.

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 Joshua Generation Global Apostolic Center 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 Joshua Generation Global Apostolic Center 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 Joshua Generation Global Apostolic Center
