The launch of Calgoo has created a reasonable sized ripple in the Blogosphere. Among the many comments and questions are several that relate to trust and how Calgoo treats user’s information. This is an important area for us and it should be important to you – it’s a dangerous world out there – so here are a few thoughts direct from the Owl’s Nest.
Google Calendar credentials – Our application needs to be able to communicate with your Google Calendar in order to function. As Calgoo is a desktop based application, your machine speaks with your Google Calendar and stores your data locally. When Calgoo asks for your Google Calendar credentials they are stored on your computer and your computer only, we do not receive or store this information. We have started a dialogue with Google and will be discussing this with them.
Calwho? – Calgoo is backed by a great team. We are a Canadian based company with real offices and real people. You can see our happy faces on the about section of our website and follow the link back to our corporate page if you want to find out more about us.
Trust – We know we have to earn it. We intend to make the Calgoo experience so darn good that you all become vocal advocates. If we make you happy, you will tell others – that’s our goal. We want you all hooting like happy Owls.
