We only use data needed to generate customized calendars and to keep the site running smoothly.
- We respect your privacy.
- We never share or sell your data or data about you.
- We never collect data for any other purpose than explicitly stated above.
- We never show ads on our website or calendars.
We collect and store data to be able to provide the user the services he uses, and to keep the site running properly.
User's account data. These data are required to verify which calendars the user has access to, when his/her subscription expires and to let him modify the parameters of his calendar subscriptions.
- Email (used as a login, does not have to be a working e-mail)
- Password (in encrypted form)
- User role (administrator, regular user etc)
- User account type and its expiration date
- Payments received for this account (note that information on your payment method, such as a credit card, is not stored by WebCal.Guru),
User's calendar subscription data. These data are required to generate the requested calendar. This is the same data the user enters in the form when subscribing a calendar.
- Calendar name and language
- Location (for calendars which require a location, such as Sun, Moon or Weather). Location is defined initially by your public IP address, and can be specified by selecting a location on a map.
- Time zone (based on the location), needed to calculate local times for events
- Other parameters required for calendar subscription (all of these are shown in the form where calendar subscriptions are created or modified).
Debugging and maintenance data. These data are needed to monitor the system and to keep it running smoothly. The data is not sold or used for marketing. Logging is enabled only for specific troubleshooting cases, and logs are deleted after the case has been resolved. In practise logging is seldom enabled.
- Log of downloaded calendars
- Size, file type, generation time etc statics for generated calendars
- Any errors encountered during calendar generation
Cached data. Calendar generation may be demanding on the server, and most calendars are re-downloaded more often than needed. WebCal.Guru receives 27 calendar requests every second.
To reduce server load and to keep the service fast, generated calendars are stored in temporary storage (cache) instead of regenerating the content every time. The data in the cache is cleared and a new calendar file generated automatically once there is new data to display. The longest cache period is 7 days, but in most cases it is less than a day.
Cookies are tiny files, stored on the client's computer, to store data about the current use session.
- WebCalGuru. Used to keep you signed in once you've done so. It is also used to store information on which notifications you've seen on the website so that they won't be shown to you again.
- WebCalGuru_configuration. Used to save the user's location. This data is used on the Today page to show local weather and sunrise/sunset times. It is also used when subscribing to a calendar which requires a location (so that you do not need to re-specify your location every time). The location is derived from your public IP address. You may also specify a different location if you wish. Finally, it is used to store form validation token to prevent submitting form data from malicious external sites.
Our data is stored in Iowa, USA, in the data center hosted by SiteGround, with backups at the office of register holder in Helsinki, Finland. Data is stored for up to five years after the last time if was last accessed by the user. All user data is deleted upon request even before the expiration period has passed.
