To provide the MMS Products, we must process information about you. The types of information we collect depend on how you use our Products.

We collect the content, communications and other information you provide when you use our Products, including when you sign up for an account, create or share content, and message or communicate with others. We don’t see the content or messages you share on the application except for testing purposes when there are issues. Our systems don’t analyse content and communications you and others share on the MMS platform. In other words, we are just a platform provider which helps to manage church activities between church members and its administration. However, our system occasionally phishes out offensive messages or communication with other members, and such members may be banned from using the account. Every member’s bio-data is fully managed by your local church administrators on our secure cloud servers.
Your church administration may regularly send you messages about church updates and events.
Periodically, MMS service may send you messages of routine maintenance and important upgrades.

Sharing on MMS Products
All members of the same denomination (church) can see each other by default in the search area of the application. Any non-interested members can easily turn off the searchable button from the settings area. The admin of your local church can also see and manage users accounts by sending regular updates and notifications to all any or all members. We (MMS) the platform provider also have access to your data but we don’t share any of those data with any third party.
No public information is shared on any search engine or seen by the public as this application is strictly designed to manage members of churches.
People can also use our Products to create and share content about you with the audience they choose (church groups). For example, people can share a photo of you in a Story, mention you at a location in a post, or share information about you in their posts or messages as a personal messages or share within the different church groups they join. If you are uncomfortable with what others have shared about you on our Products, you can report this content to your church administrator or use the feedback module in your portal to communicate with us.
No member can see your active status online except when you chat with other members. When you choose to use third-party apps, websites, or other services that use, or are integrated with, our Products, they can receive information about you. For example, if you sign up to the bible some of your bio data may be required. You can use the bible without having to sign up for it on our product.
We work with third-party partners who help us provide and improve our Products, which makes it possible to operate our companies and provide services to people around the world.

For example, you get text messages when you sign up and you also get frequent SMS and email notifications from your local church about events and updates.
We provide advertisers with reports about the kinds of people seeing their ads and how their ads are performing, but we don't share information that personally identifies you (information such as your name or email address that by itself can be used to contact you or identifies who you are) unless you give us permission. For example, we provide general demographic and interest information to advertisers.
We may share information with law enforcement or in response to legal requests in the circumstances when a suspected crime has been committed.

We store data until it is no longer necessary to provide our services and MMS Products, or until your account is deleted - whichever comes first. This is a case-by-case determination that depends on things like the nature of the data, why it is collected and processed, and relevant legal or operational retention needs. For example, when you search for something on MMS, you can access and delete that query from within your search box at any time and this information is not stored on our system.
When you delete your account, we delete things you have posted, such as your photos and profile updates, and you won't be able to recover that information later.
