What data does Schichter store?

Privacy is an important issue, so no data is sent to third parties such as Facebook or Google Analytics. In addition, only data is stored that you specify yourself.

This includes:

  • Start date of your shift rhythm
  • your complete shift rhythm for about 30 years
  • your shift layers
  • your notes
  • the place of your work (if specified)
  • some settings (e.g. whether the shift names are displayed in the calendar)

Almost all of your data is stored locally on your device so no one else has access to it except you.

To keep your devices connected to the iCloud in sync, “Schichter” stores data in iCloud:

  • Start date of your shift rhythm
  • the first repetition of the sequence of shifts
  • the last 100 exchanged shifts
  • the last 100 shifts with note
  • your note templates
  • your shift templates

If you do not want to use iCloud Syncing, just turn off the switch on all your iCloud connected devices [Settings -> Apple-ID -> iCloud -> Schichter]. You can also delete all your saved data, including iCloud data, in “Schichter” itself under [Settings -> Reset].

When you enter your shifts into the iOS Calendar app [Schichter -> Settings -> Use iOS Calendar], all your shifts will automatically be created as events in a separate calendar in the Calendar app. Apple’s Privacy Policy applies to the Calendar App:

How to properly protect your Apple device from unauthorized access, and how it works in iCloud (and generally at Apple) can be found here:

Apple Privacy

In order for some functions of  “Schichter” to work you will be asked for a permission to access your iOS calendar:

  • To enter the shifts as events in the iOS calendar
  • To display events from your other calendars in Schichter

This permission is voluntary. Data from your calendar will only be used within Schichter and will not be forwarded to anyone.

Changes to our Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to amend this privacy policy to always comply with the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the privacy policy, e.g. when introducing new services. The new privacy policy applies to your new visit.
