Effective Date: July 25, 2022
The GDPR makes a distinction between organizations that process personal data for their own purposes (known as "Data Controllers") and organizations that process personal data on behalf of other organizations (known as "Data Processors"). Carry Bible only acts as a Data Controller for very limited types of data, such as the information you enter when you register an account with us or the information you submit when purchasing our software. Carry Bible is the Data Controller for information provided by our users when we provide our Services. Carry Bible is the Data Processor for information provided by our third-party partners when they provide us with services, such as our payment partners processing payments on behalf of our users.
AS DATA CONTROLLER
How we collect and use (process) your personal information
Carry Bible collects personal information about its website visitors and customers. With a few exceptions, this information is generally limited to:
We use this information to provide prospects and customers with services.
We do not sell personal information to anyone and only share it with third parties who are facilitating the delivery of our services.
While we do not explicitly store or process information around a data subject’s religious or philosophical beliefs, due to the nature of our business it is likely that this information could be inferred reasonably. Religious or philosophical beliefs are protected by Article 9 of the GDPR. Where required we will require explicit consent to store or process this data, unless that information has been made public by the data subject (e.g. LinkedIn profile, church website).
From time to time, Carry Bible receives personal information about individuals from third parties. Typically, information collected from third parties will include further details on your employer or industry. We may also collect your personal data from a third-party website (e.g. LinkedIn)
Use of the Carry Bible Website
As is true of most other websites, Carry Bible’s website collects certain information automatically and stores it in log files. The information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, the region or general location where your computer or device is accessing the internet, browser type, operating system and other usage information about the use of Carry Bible’s website, including a history of the pages you view. We use this information to help us design our site to better suit our users’ needs. We may also use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website, analyze trends, track visitor movements, and gather broad demographic information that assists us in identifying visitor preferences.
Carry Bible has a legitimate interest in understanding how members, customers and potential customers use its website. This assists Carry Bible with providing more relevant products and services, with communicating value to our sponsors and corporate members, and with providing appropriate staffing to meet member and customer needs.
Sharing information with third parties
The personal information Carry Bible collects from you is stored in one or more databases hosted by third parties located in the United States. These third parties do not use or have access to your personal information for any purpose other than cloud storage and retrieval. On occasion, Carry Bible engages third parties to send information to you, including information about our products, services, and events.
Our third-party sub-processors are as follows:
We do not otherwise reveal your personal data to non-Carry Bible persons or businesses for their independent use unless: (1) you request or authorize it; (2) it’s in connection with Carry Bible-hosted and Carry Bible co-sponsored conferences as described above; (3) the information is provided to comply with the law (for example, compelled by law enforcement to comply with a search warrant, subpoena, or court order), enforce an agreement we have with you, or to protect our rights, property or safety, or the rights, property or safety of our employees or others; (4) the information is provided to our agents, vendors or service providers who perform functions on our behalf; (5) to address emergencies or acts of God; or (6) to address disputes, claims, or to persons demonstrating legal authority to act on your behalf. We may also gather aggregated data about our services and website visitors and disclose the results of such aggregated (but not personally identifiable) information to our partners, service providers, advertisers, and/or other third parties for marketing or promotional purposes.
Transferring personal data to the U.S.
Carry Bible has its headquarters in Australia, but use processors with locations the United States. Information we collect about you will be processed in the United States. By using Carry Bible’s services, you acknowledge that your personal information will be processed in the United States.

Carry Bible retains prospect data until such time as it no longer has business value and is purged from Carry Bible systems.

AS DATA PROCESSOR
How we collect and use (process) your personal information
The above provisions do not apply when Carry Bible acts as a Data Processor for another organisation that acts as the Data Processor (typically a ministry who have engaged Carry Bible as a vendor). In these scenarios, you will need to contact the Data Controller directly to find out about their processing, or we will forward your request to them.
Where we process your data in our capacity as a Data Processor, the processing of your data will not be governed by the foregoing provisions (“When We Act As Data Controller”), but you can contact the Data Controller directly to learn about their processing of your information and to exercise your rights, or we will forward your request directly to them at your request.
We take our role as Data Processor seriously and continue to apply the highest security standards, complying with all of our obligations under GDPR.
