Excellent site, lets you sync your Gmail Calendar & Contacts, using wifi.
It seems like an excellent service, until you look on their web site for a privacy statement or real contact information. For all we know they could be selling everyone's email addresses, passwords and data to spammers or identity thieves. They could be based in a foreign country making them immune to US/Canadian law.
Also, do you really think this service will remain free forever? You have already given them your google password, so i guess you won't object to handing over your credit card information...
Sure thing, the company doesn't tell where it's located and there is also no privacy statement. But: since yesterday, they support "OAuth", meaning you don't have to tell them your password anymore. You simply grant access to your calendar. And with one click (in your Google account) you can revoke this.
Still, it's not perfect regarding privacy, but it's also not such a super-huge-great risk anymore as your password remains secret.
It is safer than other sites that let you check your contacts automatically by handing them out your credentials for your Google account.
Hey we meet again Xtal !
Your comment about where we are based is a little amusing : wouldn't
the best thing be for us to be based on the EU where privacy
laws are much stronger than the US (or so I've read...).
Anyway, we are indeed a US company. US companies need to
abide by EU privacy law, at least in the case of their European
Lastly, users no longer give us their Google passwords as we have
implemented support for OAuth.
Hi tantalus, thanks for sticking up for us.
