ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
IMPORTANT -- READ CAREFULLY: BY CREATING AN ACCOUNT OR BY UTILIZING THE iPRAY SERVICE YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
Welcome to the iPray service, website or mobile application (collectively, the "Service" or “iPray”).
INTRODUCTION: This introduction is like Cliffnotes for everything on this page (you still are responsible for every word on this page : ) Our core hope with this app and your agreement in how you use it, is that you will follow the golden rule, employ common sense, and maintain a sense of grace for us and others.
Golden Rule – don’t steal stuff from us or others, because you don’t like people doing that to you, etc.. Even with the best security policy and technology, there is no software that is ironclad. Even as private as iPray is, especially with prayers you share, ask yourself if you would be ok if the prayer you are sharing on iPray ended up on the cover of the New York Times. We can’t prevent people from taking screenshots and sharing your prayer in places where they shouldn’t. Common sense says share prayers with only people who have already stood by you when others haven’t, people who have firmly kept private information private. This is common sense. Finally, even with common sense, even with people you trust most, we all will make mistakes. All of us might share information we thought was ok in the moment that later we regret. The iPray app may blow-up and you may lose all your prayers, iPray could get hacked (that would be royally bad), etc. This is where the sense of grace comes into play. Work to give yourself, others, and even iPray grace as your first response. Think ahead to things that might happen with your use of this app, and how you will respond. Again, preventive action and thinking works best before the problem occurs. Also, grace has no weight, if you don’t also share the truth for what you are giving grace for. Most of us that are secure with ourselves, appreciate tough truths and always appreciate a new perspective on truth we have missed. Of course truth must be shared respectfully and as an equally flawed human before God.
ALL THE TRULY OFFICIAL LEGAL STUFF STARTS HERE sorry ....
DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE
The Service includes, and is limited to, a service, web site, or mobile application that allows You access to and use of a single iPray Account. "iPray" referred to herein means a mobile application that helps people share prayer requests, prayer updates prayer guides by friends, groups of friends, and faith based organizations. The Service may contain information, data, text, photographs, videos, audio clips, written posts and comments, software, scripts, graphics, and interactive features generated, provided, or otherwise made accessible on or through the Service (collectively, “Content”). Subject to these Terms of Service, iPray grants to You and each user of the Service a worldwide, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable and non-transferable license to use (i.e., to download and display locally) Content solely for purposes of using the Service. Use, reproduction, modification, distribution or storage of any Content for other than purposes of using the Service is expressly prohibited without prior written permission from us. You shall not sell, license, rent, or otherwise use or exploit any Content for commercial use or in any way that violates any third party right. For the purposes of these Terms of Service, “Content” also includes all User Content (as defined below).
An "iPray Account" or "Account" referred to herein means a service, web site, or mobile application, provided by iPray, where You may use iPray to create, update, share, and publish information, data, text, messages or other materials ("User Content").
Without limiting the foregoing, the Service is not designed or licensed for use in hazardous environments requiring fail-safe controls, including without limitation but not limited to operation of nuclear facilities, aircraft navigation/communication systems, air traffic control, life support or weapon systems.
Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Service, including the release of new tools and resources, shall be subject to the Agreement. In order to use the Service, You must obtain access to the World Wide Web (to include any App store like Google Play), either directly or through devices that access web-based content, and pay any service fees associated with such access. In addition, You must provide all equipment necessary to make such connection to the World Wide Web, including a computer and modem or other access device. You also understand and agree that the service may include certain communications from iPray, such as service announcements, administrative messages, etc., and that these communications are considered part of the Service and You will not be able to opt out of receiving them. You agree not to access the Service by any means other than through the interfaces that are provided by iPray for use in accessing the Service. iPray will provide the Service in accordance with this Agreement. iPray may at its sole discretion modify the features of the Service from time to time without prior notice.
In order to use the Service, You must have a valid Account. To acquire an Account for the Service, You must provide iPray with an electronic mail address and other information ("Registration Data"). You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the access data for Your Account, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under Your Account. You agree to (a) immediately notify iPray of any unauthorized use of Your Account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that You exit from Your Account at the end of each session. iPray cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from Your failure to comply with this section. In consideration of use of the Service, You agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about Yourself as prompted by the Service's registration form, and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. iPray assumes no duty to verify such information as further detailed in the CONTENT OF THE SERVICE section of these Terms of Service. If You provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or iPray has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, iPray has the right to suspend or terminate Your Account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service (or any portion thereof). By using the Service (and registering an Account on the Service), You represent and warrant that You are at least 13 years of age, and no one under the age of 13 may use the Service - except as set forth below under "Kids Under 13 and iPray". iPray may, in its sole discretion, refuse to offer the Service to any person or entity and change its eligibility criteria at any time. You are solely responsible for ensuring that these Terms of Service are in compliance with all laws, rules and regulations applicable to you and the right to access the Service is revoked where these Terms of Service or use of the Service is prohibited or to the extent offering, sale or provision of the Service conflicts with any applicable law, rule or regulation.
KIDS UNDER 13 AND iPRAY
If you are registering a domain name in association with your use of iPray, using or transferring a previously registered domain name, you acknowledge and agree that use of the domain name is also subject to the policies of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (“ICANN”), including their Registration Rights and Responsibilities.
All users of iPray are expected but not required to contribute financially “VFC Voluntary Financial Contributor” for their use of iPray . If iPray cannot financially support the maintenance and growth of the “Service” with VFC and other revenue funds, iPray reserves the right to charge a fee “Paid Plan” for the use of the app in the future. If this occurs, iPray will try to communicate with You by electronic mail and other communication media of this requirement.
Also, additional groupings of features may be added to the Service and made available to You as a paid upgrade ("Paid Plan"). If You choose to subscribe to be a VFC or a Paid Plan, You shall pay fees (described below) to iPray. Upon selection of a Paid Plan, You will provide iPray with the necessary billing information ("Billing Data").
Credit cards are the only payment mechanism iPray will accept for payment of a monthly or yearly subscription fee ("Subscription Fee") for a Paid Plan. All currency references are in U.S. dollars. VFC and Paid Plans can be paid as either a monthly Subscription Fee or a yearly Subscription Fee. iPray reserves the right to change these options at any time and without notice.
If you select to be a VFC and / or select a Paid Plan, You must provide current, complete and accurate Billing Data. You must promptly update all Billing Data to keep Your Account current, complete and accurate (such as a change in billing address, credit card number or credit card expiration date) and You must promptly notify iPray if Your Payment Method is changed (for example, for loss or theft) or if You become aware of a potential breach of security, such as the unauthorized disclosure or use of Your name or password. If You fail to provide any of the foregoing information, You agree that iPray may continue charging You as a VFC and / or for any use of the Paid Plan under your Billing Data unless You have terminated your VFC and / or Your Paid Plan as set forth herein.
If You select the Monthly Fee, the credit card that You provide as part of the Billing Data will be automatically and immediately billed and then on or about the same day in each subsequent Month indefinitely until the subscription is cancelled. You agree that iPray may charge Your credit card all amounts due and owing for Your Account on that monthly basis until You have cancellation your subscription (see "Termination, Breach, Suspension and Cancellation" and "Refund"). If You select the Yearly Fee, the credit card that You provide as part of the Billing Data will be automatically and immediately billed on the day You sign up. You agree that iPray may charge to Your credit card all amounts due and owing for Your Account on that yearly basis unless you cancel the account (see the "Termination, Breach, Suspension and Cancellation" and "Refund" sections of these Terms of Service). iPray may or may not contact You via electronic mail to alert You upon each charge. iPray may change prices at any time without prior notice, but will endeavor to provide reasonable advance notice via the iPray website and/or electronic mail. You agree that in the event iPray is unable to collect the fees owed to iPray for Your Account through Your Subscription Fee, iPray may take any other steps it deems necessary to collect such fees from You and that You will be responsible for all costs and expenses incurred by iPray in connection with such collection activity, including collection fees, court costs and attorneys' fees (obviously this does not apply to VFCs).
As long as Your Account remains active and in good standing, You will be charged the Subscription Fee even if You never use the service. You may, however, cancel Your VFC or Paid Plan at any time.
TERMINATION, BREACH, SUSPENSION AND CANCELLATION
If it is brought to our attention that your prayers or profile promote physical violence toward any human being we reserve the right to delete your group and block your membership without contact or notice.
If Your Subscription Fee payment is overdue, iPray will disable Your access to the features provided by the Paid Plan. iPray may, at its sole discretion, at any time and for any reason, terminate the Service, terminate this Agreement, or suspend or terminate Your Account. In the event of suspension or termination, Your account will be disabled and You may not be granted access to Your Account or any files or other Content (including Your User Content) contained in Your Account, and iPray may delete Your User Content, although residual copies of information may remain in our system for some time for back-up purposes. In the event of termination, iPray may also withdraw and at its discretion reallocate the public web address of Your Account (if applicable to You).
If You terminate Your Account, via means provided for cancellation on the iPray website (to include the app), or via telephone call or electronic mail to iPray, and You explicitly request that iPray delete Your User Content and files contained in Your Account, iPray will make all reasonable efforts to do so (unless there is a legal reason we can’t).
iPray provides no refunds for any payments made to iPray.

Under no circumstances will iPray be liable in any way for any User Content, including, but not limited to, for any errors or omissions in any Content, or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content posted, transmitted or otherwise made available via the Service. You acknowledge that iPray does not pre-screen User Content, but that iPray and its designees shall have the right (but not the obligation) in their sole discretion to refuse, modify or move any Content that is available via the Service. Without limiting the foregoing, iPray and its designees shall have the right to remove any User Content that violates the Agreement or is otherwise objectionable. You agree that You must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any Content, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such Content. In this regard, You acknowledge that You may not reasonably rely on any Content created by iPray or submitted to iPray. You acknowledge and agree that iPray may preserve User Content and may also disclose User Content if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to:
(a) comply with legal process;
(b) enforce the Agreement;
(c) respond to claims that any Content violates the rights of third-parties; or
(d) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of iPray, its users and the public.
If iPray discloses User Content to comply with legal process or respond to claims that any User Content violates the rights of third-parties, to the extent permitted by law, regulation or legal process, iPray agrees to provide You with prompt notice of any such legal or governmental demand and reasonably cooperate with You in any effort to seek a protective order or otherwise to contest such required disclosure.
You understand that the technical processing and transmission of the Service, including Your User Content, may involve (a) transmissions over various networks; and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices.

"Personal information" is any information that we could use to identify an individual. It does not include personal information that is encoded or anonymized, or publicly available information that has not been combined with non-public information.
"Sensitive personal information" is information that meets the "personal information" criteria and also a.) reveals race, ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, or b.) concerns health or sex life, information about Social Security benefits, or information on criminal or administrative proceedings other than in the context of pending legal proceedings.
HOW WE COLLECT INFORMATION
We collect information two ways: Information we get from your use of our Services, and information you provide to us directly.
Information we get from your use of the Services is primarily non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers, servers, and services like Google Analytics*, Quantcast and Hubspot typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the time of each visit. Other non-identifying information that we might have access to includes how you use the Service (e.g. search queries), your approximate location, cookies, etc.
We collect this non-personally-identifying information in order to better understand how visitors use the Services and, where possible, to improve their experience. For instance, we log the time it takes to run database queries so that we can improve performance. In some cases, we may publicly display information that is not personally identifying in the aggregate, (e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of our Services) or may provide the aggregate data to third parties.
When you use the Services, we also collect potentially personally identifying information in the form of Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, the Uniform Resource Locator (URL) accessed (which may reference the name of a board, card, username, or team), and the unique identification number associated with the account. We don't use that information to identify you, with one exception: we may discover, by reviewing log files, that a particular account is using the Services in a way that is degrading the experience for all the Services’ users. If this is discovered, we may look up personally identifiable information associated with that account in order to contact the account owner. We handle and disclose this information in the same way we handle other potentially personally identifying information as described below.
Information you provide to us directly. Certain visitors to our Services choose to interact with them in ways that may require them to provide us with personally identifying information. The amount and type of information that is provided depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for our Services to provide a real name, username, phone number, and email address. Organizations and individuals who engage in financial transactions to purchase paid services are asked to provide additional information, such as the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, we only collect as much information as is necessary or appropriate given the type of interaction. We do not disclose personally identifying information other than as described below. And you can always refuse to supply personally identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent you from engaging in certain activities.
If you send us a request, such as emailing us for support, we reserve the right to publish it (absent any personally identifying information) in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or help other users.
We may share non-personal information we collect, without restriction. For example, we may share it with third parties to develop and deliver generally targeted advertising on the Service and on websites of third parties, and to analyze and report on advertising you see. We may combine non-personal information we collect with additional non-personal information collected from other sources. We also may share aggregated, non-personal information with third parties, including advisors, advertisers and investors, for the purpose of conducting general business analysis.
In the process of supporting our Services, we may discover personally identifiable information associated with your account. Personally identifiable information may be discovered during the support process without your consent including but not limited to your email address, other phone numbers, the names of organizations to which you belong, etc.. If we are made aware, we will make reasonable efforts to share with you when we discover and retain information without your knowledgeable.
In the process of supporting our Services, we may need to investigate the data within your account, including data you have entered into private groups or feeds, etc. If this occurs, we will always try to request your explicit permission before looking at the data in your account, but we cannot and will not guarantee this will occur.
We may share your Personal Information, which may include your name and contact information (including email address) with third parties that perform certain services on our behalf. These services may include providing customer service and marketing assistance, performing business and sales analysis, supporting the Service functionality, and other features offered through the Service.
If you are outside the United States, you should know that any personally identifiable information you enter into the Services will be transferred out of your country and into the United States, and possibly to other countries. By using the Services, you consent to such transfer and are representing that you have the right to transfer such information outside your country.
We do not collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If you believe that a child has provided us with personally identifiable information without the consent of his or her parent or guardian, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we become aware that a child under age 13 has provided us with personally identifiable information, we'll delete it.
INFORMATION YOU CHOOSE TO DISPLAY PUBLICLY ON OUR SERVICES
Some users may elect to publicly post personally identifying or sensitive information about themselves in their normal use of our Services. This could occur through use of optional profile fields, in interactions on prayer groups, feeds, etc., or if a previously private interaction is made public. Information like that, which is voluntarily posted in publicly visible parts of our Services (if that ever is possible), is considered to be public, even if it would otherwise be considered to be personally identifying or sensitive. As such, it is not subject to the protocols listed below, because we don't control it; you do. Additionally, voluntarily publicizing such information means that you lose any privacy rights you might normally have with regards to that information. It may also increase your chances of receiving unwanted communications, like spam.
Please also remember that if you choose to provide personally identifiable information using certain public features of the Services, individuals reading such information may use or disclose it to other individuals or entities without our control and without your knowledge, and search engines may index that information. We therefore urge you to think carefully about including any specific information you may deem private in content that you create or information that you submit through our Services.
INFORMATION YOU GIVE TO OTHER PEOPLE
This Policy only applies to information collected by iPray. It does not apply to the practices of companies that we don't own or control, or employees that we don't manage. Information on our Services’ feeds, profiles or groups and these may contain links to third party websites, and any information you provide to those sites will be covered by any privacy policies they may have. Please be sure to read the privacy policies of any third-party sites you visit. It is those sites' responsibility to protect any information you give them, so we can't be held liable for their wrongful use of your personally identifying information, even if you accessed the third party site through iPray.
When you use the Service assume other users of the Service will have access to information you post to the Service including but not limited to, your profile information, your prayer requests, and your membership in prayer groups and communities. Functionally, iPray has been designed to be fully controlled by the individual user. The individual users exclusively picks who they share prayers with, which organizations they allow to share with them prayers, and what groups they want to join.
HOW WE USE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Notice — Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when you are first asked to provide us with personal information, or as soon as practicable thereafter, and we'll notify you before we use the information for something other than the purpose for which it was originally collected. If anything in this policy seems unclear, please don't hesitate to contact us at so we can address your question and possibly clarify this document.
Here are some of the ways we may use personal information you provide us:
To allow you to register for our Services and to administer and process the registration
To communicate with you about our products, services and related issues
To evaluate the quality of our products and services, and to enhance your experience on our web sites
To maintain and administer our web sites and comply with our legal or internal obligations and policies
To transfer information to others as described in this policy or to satisfy our legal, regulatory, compliance, or auditing requirements, including to disclose information to law enforcement authorities upon validly served legal process or a valid judicial instruction (for example, pursuant to a court order)
To charge you any fees and provide you with a receipt or resolve billing issues associated with your account
In response to a subpoena or similar investigative demand, a court order, or a request for cooperation from a law enforcement or other government agency; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law. In such cases, we may raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us. We reserve the right, but do not undertake a duty, to notify you of court orders, subpoenas or other legal process if allowed. If you do not want us to respond to legal process compelling us to disclose any information about you, you need to obtain a valid court order from a court of competent jurisdiction.
When we believe disclosure is appropriate in connection with efforts to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud or other wrongdoing; to protect and defend the rights, property or safety of our company, our users, our employees, or others; to comply with applicable law or cooperate with law enforcement; or to enforce the Service terms and conditions or other agreements or policies.
In the case of accounts created using business email domains, to provide your contact information to an administrator of the business email domain to facilitate the provision of additional products and/or services (This might apply when You have selected an organization you trust to share prayer requests, guides, advertising, or other services to you in iPray).
Choice — Choice is all about making sure you have the ability to control how we share your personal information with others. We never share any of your personal information with non-agent third parties.
We won't share your personal information with non-agent third parties unless we are required to do so by law, or if we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect our property, rights or those of third parties or the public at large. It is possible that we may, on occasion, buy or sell assets from or to other companies. If that should occur, user information is typically one of the assets that gets transferred. Similarly, if iPray or most of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, user information could be transferred or acquired. You should be aware that such events can occur, and that if it does, the buyer may continue to use your personal and non-personal information, but only as set forth in this policy. Other than in these rare circumstances, iPray will not rent or sell potentially personally identifying information to anyone.
We may from time to time request some of your financial information for the purposes of completing transactions you have initiated through the Services, enrolling you in discount, rebate, and other programs in which you elect to participate, protecting against or identify possible fraudulent transactions, and otherwise as needed to manage our business.
If you are a registered user of our Services and have supplied your email address, or phone number, we may occasionally send you communications to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with the Services. We generally use our Services to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of communication to a minimum. If we do send you information that you did not expressly request, we will provide you with a way to request that you don't get any similar notices (opt-out, unsubscribe, etc.).
Onward Transfer — Prior to providing agents with any personal information, we will obtain assurances that they will safeguard it in accordance with this policy. Examples of assurances that may be provided include:
A commitment that they will handle the information in accordance with this policy, or will provide the same level of protection, as required by the Privacy Shield Principles, subject to EU Directive 95/46/EC ("the EU Data Protection Directive");
Privacy Shield certification by the agent, or being subject to another European Commission adequacy finding.
In the unlikely event that we should discover that an agent is using personal information in a way that conflicts with this policy, we will take all reasonable steps to stop it immediately.
Security — All records containing personal or financial information are considered to be our property and are afforded confidential treatment at all times. We work hard to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of personal or financial information. All such electronic information is stored on restricted database servers, and is generally kept until such time as you may ask us to edit or delete it, as described below. We only disclose such information to our employees, contractors or affiliates that a) need to know that information in order to process it for us or to provide other services, and b) have agreed not to disclose it to others.
Interactions with our Services intend to use or now use the Transport Layer Security/Secure Sockets Layer (TLS/SSL) protocol. We use a third-party, industry-accepted Payment Gateway to securely process credit card transactions.
Data Integrity — In addition to assuring you that we will protect your personal information, we also want to make sure that it is reliable, accurate, and up-to-date. In order to do that, we provide:
Access — Upon request, we will provide you with reasonable access to the personal information we collect about you. Because personal information—for example, your email address—is required to use The Services, we retain personal information as long as your account is active. You will have the opportunity to correct, update, modify or delete this information updating your information in The Services. Please note that some information may remain in our records even after you request deletion of your information, to the extent permitted by the Privacy Shield Principles. Additionally, there may be limits to the amount of information we can practically provide. For example, we may limit an individual's access to personal information where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the individual's privacy or where doing so would violate others' rights.
If you have any concerns or complaints about how you think we've handled your personal information, please contact email@example.com. We will work hard to investigate and resolve any complaints you might have.
