Use of Personal Information
Countdown Maps collects and uses personal information to operate its websites and to deliver the products and services requested. Information collected via Countdown Maps Services or Apps are used for a variety of business purposes described below:
Sharing Information with Third Parties
Countdown Maps does not sell, rent, or lease customer lists to third parties. Countdown Maps may share data with trusted partners to help perform statistical analysis, send email, provide customer support, or arrange deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using a customer’s personal information except to provide these services to Countdown Maps, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality or customer information.
Countdown Maps may disclose customer information where we are legally required to do so in order to comply with applicable law, governmental requests, a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process.
Countdown Maps may also disclose information when it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding potential violations of our policies, suspect fraud, situations involving potential threats to the safety of any person and illegal activities, or as evidence in litigation in which Countdown Maps is involved.
Third Party Services used by the Countdown Maps Mobile App
The iOS app uses Google Tag Manager and Firebase Analytics for analytics and Firebase Crashlytics for crash reporting, all of which are owned by Google. The information sent to Google is anonymized before being sent and can’t be linked back to the user by Google. This information is sent regardless of whether or not the user has a Countdown Maps account set up. If they have an account, a non-PII identifier is also included in analytic events and crash reports. That identifier doesn’t contain personal information and can’t be used by Google, but it can be used by Countdown Maps administrators in the server’s database if needed for purposes such as troubleshooting.
Mobile App Synch Accounts
One of the features of the mobile app is the capability to create an account for the purpose of backing up the information on their device and syncing that information with other devices. This functionality is not required to run the App, but if they choose to use it, they will set up an account (with a User ID and Password).
Information Shared by Customers
One of the features of the Mobile App is the ability to share information with others or to post it to social media:
NOTE: sharing to social media sites has restrictions on the ability to share personal missionary contact and location information
Security of this information is up to the app user who initiates the sharing function and chooses the information that they share and the audience that will receive it. Users are solely responsible for what is shared, the accuracy of what they share, and how it is shared. It is expected that users will use discretion when choosing what information to share and who to share it with. Countdown Maps only provides the sharing capability and is in no way responsible for the shared content.

Security of Personal Information
Countdown Maps secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, alteration, or disclosure. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided personal information, please contact us so that we can take necessary actions.
