When you see stats we share and celebrate about disciple-making activities, we make sure to analyze the data in a way that protects your privacy. When this information is published, it is only in an aggregated form that does not disclose your personally identifiable information.
Last modified on January 15,2020
To make this document easier to read, we’re going to use some shorthand throughout. For example, when we say “Move Closer,” we’re talking about:
- The Move Closer mobile application for iOS and Android Devices
- The website movecloser.org
Move Closer products are owned and operated by PULSE Outreach, which we’ll refer to as “PULSE,” “us,” or “we” throughout this policy. We allow use of Move Closer by registered users, or “Users.” When we refer to both in this policy, we’ll use the term “Users” or “you.”

How We Use Your Information
We do not share your personal data with any third-party advertisers or ad networks for their advertising purposes. We use data that we collect about you or that you provide to us, including any personal information, as follows:
- To provide you with Move Closer, and any other information, products, or services that you request from us;
- To fulfill any other purpose for which you provide it;
- In any other way we may describe when you provide the information; and
- For any other purpose with your consent.
Your ability to access Move Closer is only contingent on you providing your name, and you are not required to submit any additional personally identifying information.
Facilitating Your Use of Move Closer
We use your personal data to authorize your access to Move Closer if you are a User. We also use your personal data to provide certain functionality of Move Closer depending on the functionality you use and choose and the personal data you agree to provide. We use the data that we have about you to provide, improve, and personalize Move Closer, including with the help of automated technologies discussed in this policy and the inferences that we make from information we collect.
Move Closer will allow you to communicate and connect with other Move Closer users to share invitations and group messages. It is your choice whether to communicate or connect with another User. We will use data about you to help you connect and communicate and share content with other Move Closer users. This includes personal information you provide to us and individuals with which you communicate. We may also use contact information from your mobile device should you grant permission to Move Closer to access the same.
We may use the data we have about you and inferences we make from that data to recommend certain content and functionality through Move Closer. For example, based upon an album you complete, we may suggest additional albums to you. We may contact you through push notification, email, or in-app messages to discuss these recommendations, how to use Move Closer, and other Move Closer news messages.
We may use your information to contact you about account, security, legal and other service-related issues. We will do this through in-app messages, push notifications, text messages and/or email.

Analytics and Performance
We use de-identified and aggregate user data to market Move Closer, including communications that promote Move Closer and network growth, such as celebrating the total number of Move Closer mobile installs. We use data, including user provided personal information, aggregations of user data, data collected through use of Move Closer (such as album engagement, album completions, and track completion activity), public feedback and information inferred from this data to conduct internal research and development in order to provide a better overall Move Closer experience, measure the performance of Move Closer and increase use of Move Closer and its features. This is done by making changes to Move Closer that are generally available, as well as sending users messages through Move Closer suggesting Move Closer functionality and content.

Information We Collect and How We Collect It
Information You Provide to Us
You must become a Move Closer user to use Move Closer. To become a User, you are required to create an account and provide certain information such as your name and email address, which will be associated with your User account.
Beyond this required information, you have choices about whether to provide additional information to be associated with your User account. We collect personal data from you when you provide, post, or upload it to Move Closer. You do not have to provide such information; however, if you do not, it may limit our ability to personalize Move Closer and your ability to use Move Closer to its fullest extent.
If you choose to link Move Closer with other websites, applications, and services or profiles you have with third party applications, you will provide the personal data stored on those applications to Move Closer and PULSE. You may revoke the link with such accounts and third-party applications by modifying your settings with those applications. In addition, when you grant access to your contacts on your device for the purpose of friend suggestions, notification of when a contact joins, or sending an invite to Move Closer, that information is stored on our servers for the purpose of offering you this functionality.
By downloading and using Move Closer, we do not assume that you are of any particular religious denomination or are expressing to us any particular religious belief; we merely assume that you are interested in using the Move Closer app. We do not require that users provide such beliefs to us or provide any other sensitive data such as race, ethnicity, philosophical beliefs, or physical or mental health to create or maintain a Move Closer User account. It is your choice whether to provide such sensitive information should it be an option to do so. If you choose to provide any sensitive information, it may be used by PULSE to create a more personalized Move Closer experience like other non-sensitive information you provide. In any event, PULSE will only process sensitive data you provide to us for PULSE’s legitimate activities on your behalf and will not disclose this information without your express consent. We will maintain your information subject to appropriate safeguards discussed in this policy and otherwise provided by PULSE. Should you have any questions, feel free to contact us at email@example.com.

Disclosure of Your Information
Disclosure on Your Behalf
Disclosure by You
When you share information through Move Closer, that information is viewable by you and by anyone else you chose to share it with. If you give access to your Move Closer account to other applications and services, based on your approval, those services would then have access to your shared information. The use, collection and protection of your data by such third-party services is subject to those third parties’ policies.
We will share your personal data internally within PULSE to help combine the personal information covered across the different aspects of Move Closer and our other products and services to help provide services to you in a manner that is personalized and useful to you and others. For example, we can personalize potential services to recommend to you using cookies or similar technologies that track what functionality you have already opted to receive.
Disclosure to Our Service Providers
It is possible that we will need to disclose information about you when required by law, subpoena, or other legal process or if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (1) investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or to assist government enforcement agencies; (2) enforce our agreements with you; (3) investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations; (4) protect the security or integrity of Move Closer; or (5) exercise or protect the rights and safety of PULSE, our Users, personnel, or others. We attempt to notify Users about legal demands for their personal data when appropriate in our judgment, unless prohibited by law or court order or when the request is an emergency. We may dispute such demands when we believe, in our discretion, that the requests are overbroad, vague, or lack proper authority, but we do not promise to challenge every demand.
Your Rights to Deleting, Accessing and Correcting Your Information
For personal data that we have about you, you have the following rights:
- Deletion. You may ask us to erase or delete all or some of your personal data. Please note that doing so may limit or remove your ability to use Move Closer. Please note that an email address is required to have a User account.
- Correction/Modification: You may edit some of your personal data through your account or ask us to change, update, or fix your data in certain cases, including if it’s inaccurate.
- Object to, or Limit or Restrict, Use of Data: You can ask us to stop using all or some of your personal data (for example, if we have no legal right to keep using it) or to limit our use of it (for example, if your personal data is inaccurate or unlawfully held).
- Right to Access and/or Take Your Data: You can ask us for a copy of your personal data you provided to us.
To make these or any other requests with respect to your personal information, you may send us an e-mail to email@example.com. You may also contact us at: PULSE Outreach., attn.: Move Closer Support, 600 S 9th Street, Minneapolis, MN 55404. We ask that individuals making requests identify themselves and identify the information requested to be accessed, corrected, or removed before we process any requests. We may decline to process requests if we cannot verify the requestor’s identity, if we believe the request will jeopardize the privacy of others, if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect, or for a similar legitimate purpose. In any case, where we provide information access, deletion or correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort.
We have no control of information you have shared with others through Move Closer after you close your account or asked to delete information or attempted to delete your account yourself. Your information and content you have shared may continue to be displayed in the services of others (for example, search engine results) until they refresh their cache.
