Privacy Policy

Protecting your privacy is a priority for us. Our privacy policy explains how information is collected, used and disclosed by Guideposts with respect to your access and use of the Devoutly mobile application (referred to below as “Devoutly”).  This Privacy Policy does not apply to any third-party websites, services or applications, even if they are accessible through Devoutly. This Privacy Policy is intended to meet requirements in North America, Europe, and other jurisdictions. If you have questions regarding our Privacy Policy, please contact [email protected].

What Information Do We Collect?

We collect certain information you voluntarily provide to us when using Devoutly, such as when you create an account and profile, send or post information or other content to Devoutly. We collect certain personal information, like your name, picture, email address and any other information you provide to us, including for example, customer testimonials.

We may also automatically collect certain information when you use Devoutly, such as your time zone, Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system, the browser type, the address of a referring site and your activity on Devoutly. This information is not treated as personal information unless we combine it with or link it to any of the personally identifiable information mentioned above.

We may also automatically collect certain information through the use of “cookies”. These are small files that your browser places on your computer. We may use both “session” cookies (that last until you close your browser) and “persistent” cookies (that last until you or your browser delete them) to better understand how you interact with our services, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on our services, and to improve our services. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by editing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit.

How Do We Use the Information We Collect?

We use the information collected through Devoutly for the purposes described below:

  • to provide our services or information you request, develop new products, and to process and complete any transactions;
  • to respond to your emails, submissions, questions, comments, requests, and complaints and provide customer service;
  • to monitor and analyze usage and trends, and to personalize and improve Devoutly and your experiences when you use Devoutly and to increase the functionality and user friendliness of our services;
  • to send you confirmations, updates, security alerts, and support and administrative messages and otherwise facilitate your use of, and our administration and operation of, our services;
  • to send you news, content, and special offers;
  • for any other purpose for which the information was collected.

The information we collect may be “personally identifiable” (meaning it can be used to specifically identify you as a unique person) or “non-personally identifiable” (meaning it can’t be used to specifically identify you). We may use or store information wherever we do business.

What Information Do We Share With Third Parties?

We will not share the personal information we have collected from you, except as described below:

  • with service providers who are working with us in connection with the operation of Devoutly or other services (these service providers have access to your personal information only to perform services on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose it or use it for any other purposes and are subject to compliance with this Privacy Policy);
  • with third-Party Payment Processing platforms who sell subscriptions or merchandise through Devoutly. When you make purchases through Devoutly, we process your payments through a third party application, including the Apple App Store (together with any similar applications, “App Stores”) and other third-party payment processors, including Stripe. The third party application may collect certain financial information from you to process a payment on behalf of Guideposts, including your name, email address, address and other billing information.
  • we may share aggregated information and non-identifiable information with third parties or partners for industry analysis, demographic profiling and other similar purposes;
  • when you give us your consent to do so, including if we notify you that the information you provide will be shared in a particular manner and you provide such information;
  • when we believe in good faith that we are lawfully authorized or required to do so or that doing so is reasonably necessary or appropriate to comply with the law, regulation or legal processes or in response to lawful requests or legal authorities, including responding to lawful subpoenas, warrants or court orders;
  • to enforce or apply our Privacy Policy, our Terms of Use or our other policies or agreements; and
  • in connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization, financing or acquisition, or in any other situation where personal information may be disclosed or transferred as one of our business assets.

We are not responsible for the actions of service providers or other third parties, nor are we responsible for any additional information you provide directly to any third parties.

Links to Other Sites

Devoutly may contain links to other third-party sites. Any information that you provide on a third party site is provided directly to the owner of that site and is subject to that party’s privacy policy. Our Privacy Policy does not apply to such sites, and we are not responsible for the content or privacy and security practices and policies of those third party sites.

What Steps Do We Take To Protect Your Information?

We take reasonable measures to protect your personal information in an effort to prevent loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Please be aware, however, that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against any interception or other type of misuse.
