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:

  • your entered shifts
  • your shift templates
  • your notes
  • your note templates
  • the place of your work (if specified)
  • some settings (e.g. whether the shift names are displayed in the calendar)

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

Starting with version 1.9.1 there is an in-app purchase that unlocks some features for iCloud. In return “Schichter” stores data in your private iCloud container:

  • your entered shifts
  • your shift templates
  • your notes
  • your note templates
  • Backups (if enabled)

No one but you has access to the data in the iCloud, data in the iCloud is generally subject to Apple’s privacy policy (see below).

If you want to delete the data in iCloud, you have to press [Schichter -> Settings -> iCloud Settings -> Reset Cloud] for synchronization.
You can delete your automatic backups by simply turning off the [Schichter -> Settings -> iCloud Settings -> Automated Backups] switch.
You can delete your manual backups by selecting [Schichter -> Settings -> iCloud Settings -> Backups -> Edit -> Delete].

Deleting the app from your device will not delete any data in iCloud, it will remain until you follow the steps above!

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 features of “Schichter” to work, you will be asked for permission to access your iOS calendar or contacts:

  • To enter the shifts as events in the iOS calendar
  • To display events from your other calendars in Schichter
  • To create your own appointments directly from Schichter in your calendars.

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