Pioneer Bible Translators exists to disciple the Bibleless, mobilizing God’s people to provide enduring access to God’s Word. Our vision is to see transformed lives through God’s Word in every language. The work is not finished until there are networks of churches using Scripture to grow, mature and multiply in every language group on Earth.
WHAT ACCESS TO YOUR DEVICE DOES THE SCRIPTURE APP NEED?
Scripture apps need access to read/write to your device’s storage (memory) space, including memory cards, e.g., SD card. This allows for a download of the audio reading of the Scriptures to be stored on the local device and played while the app is running. The user has the option to give permissions for this to happen or not.
WHAT INFORMATION MIGHT WE COLLECT?
Our Scripture app collects the following types of non-personally identifiable information:
1. Type of device (e.g. Samsung S7).
2. Version of operating system (e.g. Android 7.0).
3. City/Country where connected to internet (e.g. Morogoro, Tanzania).
4. Content engaged.
5. Amount of time the app is used.
The app will connect from time to time to send usage information to a Google Analytics account. If the app does not connect to the internet, the analytic data is not collected.
Our Scripture app does not collect any personally identifiable information (PII). PII is any information regarding a natural person, a legal person, an institution or an association, which is, or can be, identified, even indirectly,
by reference to any other information, including a personal identification number. PII does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).
WHAT DO WE USE YOUR INFORMATION FOR?
Any of the information we collect from you may be used primarily to gauge how many people use the app and where they are using it. Secondarily, it may be used to improve our application to better support our users, wherever in the world they are located.
HOW DO WE PROTECT THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT?
We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. This includes internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, and physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store data.
DO WE DISCLOSE ANY INFORMATION TO OUTSIDE PARTIES?
We do share summaries of the anonymous data with our ministry partners. But we do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer data we collect to outside parties. This does not include trusted third parties to assist us in operating our Scripture app store, conducting our business, or servicing the app, so long as those parties agree to keep all information confidential.
