Third party as service
This plugin utilises Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a service to retrieve the data to display on your website.
More specifically, the readings from the Bibles are stored in a DynamoDB instance and they are fetched through Api Gateway.

This AWS application is owned and managed by the same developer of this plugin and it’s accessible through the API https://7opmf2m7eg.execute-api.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/default/getDailyLecture.

That API fetches the daily readings from the Bibles stored in a DynamoDB instance and accepts a few parameters, coming from the plugin’s main settings:

  • rite
  • removeNumbers
  • date
  • gmtOffset

As reported in this Privacy Notice, no user data is stored in any way, neither in WordPress nor in AWS.
