Your privacy is critically important to us. Your data is your own. We make no claims to it and will only use it according to the policies outlined below.

Mobile App Users (Android & iOS)
Great Church Sound and the Church Sound Guide App may collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that mobile applications typically make available, such as the device type, browser type, language preference, and the date and time of each visitor request. Great Church Sound's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how  visitors use the mobile app. Great Church Sound also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Special permissions may be required to use the mobile app because it accesses the microphone and speakers for audio functionality of the sound pressure level (SPL) meter, Real Time Analyzer (RTA) frequency analysis tool, and multi-track practice mixer. Audio captured by the microphone is not stored or transmitted to Great Church Sound or anywhere beyond the user's mobile device.
