Protecting Other People's Rights

We respect other people's rights, and expect you to do the same.

Information We Receive About You

We receive different types of information about you.

Your information

Your information is the information that's required when you sign up for the site, as well as the information you choose to share.  When you sign up for this site, you are required to provide information such as your name and email address. Your information also includes the information you choose to share on this site, such as when you share a story, upload a photo, or comment on a friend's story.  It also includes the information you choose to share when you take an action, such as when you add a friend, favorite an organization, like a page or a website, add a place to your story, or indicate personal interest.  Your name, profile pictures, cover photos, gender, networks, username and User ID are treated just like information you choose to make public.

Information others share about you

We receive information about you from the community, such as when a resource is posted, tag you in a resource or event, or at a location, or add you to a group. When people use this site, they may store and share information about you and others, such as when they upload and manage their invites and contacts.

Other information we receive about you

We receive data about you whenever you interact with this site, such as when you look at another person's profile, send or receive a message, search for someone or a page, click on, view or otherwise interact with things, use a SOUTHEAST CHRISTIAN CHURCH mobile app, or make other purchases through this site. When you post things like photos or videos on this site, we may receive additional related data (or metadata), such as the time, date, and place you took the photo or video.  We receive data from the computer, mobile phone or other device you use to access this site, including when multiple users log in from the same device. This may include your IP address and other information about things like your internet service, location, the type (including identifiers) of browser you use, or the pages you visit. For example, we may get your GPS or other location information so we can tell you if any of your friends are nearby.  We receive data whenever you use an application, or website that uses MEDICALMISSIONS.COM / SOUTHEAST CHRISTIAN CHURCH Platform , sometimes through cookies. This may include the date and time you visit the site; the web address, or URL, you're on; technical information about the IP address, browser and the operating system you use; and, if you are logged in to this site, your User ID. Sometimes we get data from our affiliates or our advertising partners, customers and other third parties that helps us (or them) deliver ads, understand online activity, and generally make this site better. For example, an advertiser may tell us information about you (like how you responded to an ad on this site (or on another site) in order to measure the effectiveness of and improve the quality of ads.

We also put together data from the information we already have about you and your friends. For example, we may put together data about you to determine which resources, opportunities, and connections to suggest to you. We may put together your current city with GPS and other location information we have about you to, for example, tell you and your friends about local resources and opportunities. We may also put together data about you to serve you ads that might be more relevant to you.

When we get your GPS location, we put it together with other location information we have about you (like your current city). We only provide data to our advertising partners or customers after we have removed your name or any other personally identifying information from it, or have combined it with other people's data in a way that it is no longer associated with you.

Information you choose to make public

Choosing to make your information public is exactly what it sounds like: anyone, including people off of this site, will be able to see it.  By posting information to this site you are making it public unless given the opportunity to make it private or noted that the information is private. 

Choosing to make your information public also means that this information can be associated with you (i.e., your name, profile pictures, organizations, tags, experiences, etc.) and can show up when someone does a search on this site or on a public search engine.  Sometimes you will not be able to select an audience when you post something. This is because some types of stories are always public stories. As a general rule, you should assume the information you share will be publicly available.  When others share information about you, they can also choose to make it public.

Information that is always publicly available

The types of information listed below are always publicly available, and are treated just like information you decided to make public.

Usernames and User IDs

A Username is a custom link to your timeline that you can give out to people or post on external websites. Usernames appear in the URL on your timeline. We also use your User ID to identify your MEDICALMISSIONS.COM account.

How we use the information we receive

We use the information we receive about you in connection with the services and features we provide to you and other users like your friends, our partners, and the developers, applications, and websites you use. For example, in addition to helping people see and find things that you do and share, we may use the information we receive about you:

Granting us this permission not only allows us to provide this site as it exists today, but it also allows us to provide you with innovative features and services we develop in the future that use the information we receive about you in new ways. While you are allowing us to use the information we receive about you, you always own all of your information. Your trust is important to us, which is why we don't share information we receive about you with others unless we have received your permission; given you notice, such as by telling you about it in this policy; or removed your name or any other personally identifying information from it.  Of course, for information others share about you, they control how it is shared. We store data for as long as it is necessary to provide products and services to you and others, including those described above.

Deleting and deactivating your account

If you want to stop using your account, you can either deactivate or delete it.

Deactivate

Deactivating your account puts your account on hold. Other users will no longer see your information, but we do not delete any of your information. Deactivating an account is the same as you telling us not to delete any information because you might want to reactivate your account at some point in the future. Your friends will still see you listed in their list of friends while your account is deactivated.

Deletion.

When you delete an account, it is permanently deleted from this site. It typically takes about one month to delete an account, but some information may remain in backup copies and logs for up to 90 days. You should only delete your account if you are sure you never want to reactivate it. Certain information is needed to provide you with services, so we only delete this information after you delete your account. Some of the things you do on this site aren't stored in your account.

Using Facebook Social Login/Logging into this site using Facebook

The Facebook Platform lets you log into other applications and websites using your Facebook account. When you log in using Facebook, Facebook gives this site your User ID (just like when you connect with any other application), but Facebook does not share your email address or password with us through this process without your permission.

If you already have an account on this site, we may also be able to connect that account with your Facebook account. Sometimes we do this using what is called an "email hash,” which is similar to searching for someone on this site using an email address. Only the email addresses in this case are hashed so no email addresses are actually shared between Facebook and this site.

How it works

This site sends over a hashed version of your email address, and Facebook matches it with a database of email addresses that Facebook has also hashed. If there is a match, then Facebook tells us the User ID associated with the email address. This way, when you log into this site using Facebook, this site  can link your Facebook account to your account on this site.

About social plugins

Social plugins are buttons, boxes, friend’s lists, and stories (such as the Like button) that this site and other websites can use to present Facebook content to you and create more social and personal experiences for you. While you view these buttons, boxes, and stories on other sites, the content comes directly from Facebook.  Sometimes plugins act just like applications. You can spot one of these plugins because it will ask you for permission to access your information or to publish information back to Facebook. For example, if you use a registration plugin on  this site, the plugin will ask your permission to share your basic info with this site to make it easier for you to register for this site. Similarly, if you use an Add To Timeline plugin, the plugin will ask your permission to publish stories about your activities on this site to Facebook.

Cookies, Pixels, and Other System Technologies

Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored on your computer, mobile phone or other device. Pixels are small blocks of code on webpages that do things like allow another server to measure viewing of a webpage and often are used in connection with cookies. We use technologies like cookies, pixels, and local storage (like on your browser or device, which is similar to a cookie but holds more information) to provide and understand a range of products and services.

We use these technologies to do things like:

For example, we may use them to know you are logged in to this site, to help you use social plugins and share buttons, or to know when you are interacting with our advertising or Platform partners.  We may ask advertisers or other partners to serve ads or services to computers, mobile phones or other.
