Backup and restoration of data to cloud:

To use our cloud and other features (such as the cloud backup for your shifts), you will need to provide your email address which is used as a unique username for your account. This is paired with a password that you choose to make sure your account and data stay secure. Never tell anyone your password!

Your backups are stored in our secure cloud system against your account so can't be accessed by anyone but you (using your registered email and password). We monitor all activity too, so if we spot anything suspicious we can deal with it quickly.

Synchronization of data for web view:

Apart from that, we save the data that you have provided us for synchronization purposes. By synchronization we mean, transferring of your data from mobile device to our cloud server, so you can view your data on the web portal.
