Your personal information includes sensitive personal data, which is information as to your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious, philosophical or similar beliefs, trade union membership, physical or mental health, sexual life, commission of criminal offenses and involvement in criminal proceedings.

We collect and you intentionally provide through the Service personal information when you post it to the Service or send it to us, including, but not limited to when you create an account on the Service. It is your choice whether to send personal information to us. Some information must be provided in order to participate in certain services, features, programs, or activities, so the decision not to provide information may limit or eliminate certain functions of the Service or your ability to participate. The types of personal information that we tend to request about you include, but are not limited to: your name, email address, interests and activities, birthday, city, zip code, and demographic information such as age and gender. Unless we expressly ask for sensitive personal information, you should not supply it.
6. Information You Provide About Yourself While Using the Service
We provide areas on our Service where you can share information about yourself and others and communicate with others. Through the Service you may post prayer requests, comments to other prayer requests, and rate other prayer requests. All prayer requests you post are viewable by other Ora users unless you designate them as “private” at the time of creation or limit them to specific prayer circles. You may post prayer requests to the a Public Prayer Circle, and that prayer request will be viewable by any Ora user. The only way you can stop others from viewing a public prayer request is to delete it. You may restrict your prayer request to specific prayer circles, either your private prayer circle(s), or an organizational prayer circle. Other users may view your prayer request and click on your username link, which will show your profile information, which includes, but is not limited to your other prayer requests and public prayer circle membership. Organizational members may also post prayer requests and any comments you make to those prayer requests are viewable by other users and other users will be able to click on your username and view your profile. However, any comments posted to individual prayer requests will only be viewable by the creator of the prayer request. If you post a comment to an individual’s prayer request, he or she will be able to see your username and click on your username to see your profile information. You may also send messages to other users and the recipient will see your username and may also click on it to see your profile or to send you a response message. We encourage you to exercise discretion and caution with respect to including your personal information in prayer requests you create or other public portions of the Service. Remember, any personal information you include in your prayer request may be viewable by others and we encourage you to be careful in the type of personal information you share. For example, including your name and location or other potentially identifying information in a prayer request may not be safe if you are located in a country or jurisdiction that does not allow religious statements or activity.
You may also join various prayer circles in the Service. If you join a prayer circle, other users in the prayer circle will be able to see that you are member of that prayer circle. If you join an open (“free association”) prayer circle, other users who view your profile will see that you are a member of that open prayer circle. If you join a private prayer circle, only those members of the private prayer circle will see that you are a member of that private prayer circle.
You may also choose to share information with third-parties such as social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter (“Social Sites”) by “sharing” your prayer quests. See Section 15 (Third Party Websites) for more information.
