Privacy Policy

Last revised on 11/01/2017

Acts 2:47, a Website and Application owned and operated by FOCUS, knows you care how information about you is used and shared. We hope the following statements will help you understand how Acts 2:47 will collect, use and protect the information you provide to us on our site or mobile application.

What we collect and how we use it

  • Information you provide

When you sign up for an Acts 2:47 account, we ask you for personal information (such as your name, email address and an account password). We may combine the information you submit under your account, with information from other FOCUS services or third parties to provide you with a better experience and to improve the quality of our services.

  • Unique Device ID and GPS location

When you access the Acts 2:47 Application, we may collect your Unique Device ID ('UDID') and/or IP address and/or GPS location. We use this information to provide a tailored experience for you. The information is collected in order to determine the aggregate number of unique devices using our service or parts of our service, to track total usage, analyze data, and communicate with you more effectively. We may combine this information with information from third parties to provide you with a better experience and to improve the quality of our service. We do not share any personally identifiable information with third parties in association with your UDID or GPS location without your explicit permission.

  • FOCUS cookies

When you visit acts247.focus.org, we may send one or more cookies to your computer, so that we may uniquely identify your browser. (A cookie is simply a tiny text file containing a string of characters.) Accepting our cookies allows you to keep your user preferences from session to session. Although most browsers accept cookies by default, you can set your browser to refuse all cookies, or to tell you when you're being sent a cookie. Some Acts 2:47 features and services may not function properly if you have cookies disabled.

  • Log information

When you use Acts 2:47, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends when you visit one of our website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request, and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.

  • User communications

Personal information, user created messages, and requests that you submit via acts247.focus.org are permanently stored on our servers. FOCUS will have access to this information. When you send email or other communication to or from the application, we may retain those communications to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our services.

  • Third party sites

This Privacy Policy applies only to the site and app that are owned and operated by FOCUS. FOCUS cannot regulate other sites linked from within our various web site and services. These other sites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. You should familiarize yourself with their unique Privacy Policies, should you choose to visit their sites.

How do we use your information?

When you sign up for a particular service that requires registration, we ask you to provide personal information. FOCUS may use this information in a manner different than the purpose for which it was collected. You may decline to submit personal information to any of our services, in which case we may not be able to provide those services to you.

How do we protect your information?

FOCUS does not share your personal information with other institutions outside of FOCUS without your explicit consent. FOCUS may share your personal information only if it has a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request, (b) enforce applicable Terms Of Use, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or (d) protect against imminent harm to the rights, property or safety of FOCUS, its users or the public as required or permitted by law. FOCUS takes appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data including internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data.

Data Integrity

FOCUS reviews our data collection, storage and processing practices to ensure that we only collect, store and process the personal information needed to provide or improve our services. We take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we process is accurate, complete, and current, but we depend on our users to update or correct their personal information whenever necessary.

Accessing and updating personal information

When you use the Acts 2:47 application or website, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal information to correct this data if it is inaccurate.
