This is a direct connection between user’s browser and the Google API. There are no servers or services involved, so the data will not be cached. User’s events aren’t shared with anyone because your calendar isn’t. Regardless of the settings you select for your event, only user will be able to see it. This app connects to Google Calendar in a two-way manner. Both Google Calendar and the app Calendar allow users to add, edit, and update events.
The software promises to keep Your personal information private while also allowing You to exercise your rights. The app allows users to share app data on their own Google calendar, as well as add, modify, and update data (events) from the bacpak.co website to their own Google calendar.
This software retrieves your calendars and events via the Google Calendar API, crunches the data, and presents it elegantly.

 

How We Use Your Information:
We do not sell your personal information to other parties for their own marketing reasons, such as your name and contact information. The information we collect is used by bacpak for the following purposes: The app allows users to share app data on their own Google calendar, as well as add, modify, and update data (events) from the bacpak.co website to their own Google calendar.
