GCalToolkit removes duplicates from your Google Calendars and cleans up failed imports & syncs in a few clicks.
Your Credit Card / Paypal Account
All payments are made directly on Paypal's secure servers: you should ALWAYS check that you can see https://paypal.com/.... in the address bar before making paypal payments on any site. No payment details or other critical information is ever stored on GCalToolkit.com, which is why you see "http://" and not "https://" when using this website and the Online tool.
Your Personal Details
The only details stored on GCalToolkit.com are your name, username & email address that you used to register before payment, and the state of your subscription to GCalToolkit. I do not share email addresses with any third-party sites, and you will not receive any spam as a result of signing up on GCalToolkit.com. If you wish to remove your name and email address from GCalToolkit.com for any reason, please send me an email.
GCalToolkit.com and GCalToolkit.net use a small number of "first party" cookies for essential site operation (login, security, shopping cart etc). No personal or browsing data is stored or tracked with these session cookies, and they can be deleted easily in the "Settings" or "Options" section of your browser. GCalToolkit.com and GCalToolkit.net also use Google Analytics to provide anonymous data that is used to improve visibility on the web and give important feedback that helps me improve the website and software. GCalToolkit and GCalToolkit.net are currently moving towards EU Cookie Compliance, but as things stand (e.g. different "cookie laws" in each European country, confusion over "essential" and "non-essential" cookies, and constantly changing EU policy), I prefer to err on the side of a hassle-free browsing and e-commerce experience. If you have any questions or complaints about this please feel free to contact me directly. For more information on EU Cookie Law please see:
GCalToolkit is regularly scanned by Softpedia & CNET to reassure you that it is 100% clean. You can check these reports, read some reviews and download version 1.5 from these reputable websites here:
Your Google Password
The Online GCalToolkit and GCalToolkit 2.x (Windows) use the very latest technology (OAuth2) to connect to your Google Calendar without you ever having to type your Google password into GCalToolkit - instead you are taken to www.google.com in your browser to sign in; this means that at no point does my website or software have access to your google password. By clicking "Grant Access" on google.com you allow GCalToolkit temporary access your Google Calendar, and you can revoke this authorization at any time in your Google Account settings (Please see http://support.google.com/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=41236)
The older version 1.5 of the Windows GCalToolkit requires you to enter your Google password in order to connect to Google, but this password is never stored on your computer, or sent to anyone except Google using SSL encryption. This method is less secure than version 2.x, and version 1.5 will be phased out when Google no longer allow this sign-in method.
Your Google Calendar
Information from your Google Calendar is transferred using encrypted SSL technology between google.com and gcaltoolkit.net (or your computer if you use the Windows version). The information sent from GCalToolkit.net to your computer is also encrypted, but not using SSL - although the chance of anyone gaining access to your calendar data in this way is very small, you should be aware that this is a potential security risk if you use the online GCalToolkit on any unsecure network (e.g public WIFI Hotspots).
The Online GCalToolkit only stores your calendar data in RAM memory, unless you select to "Save Session" in which case the calendar is written to a file in a secure location for you to download; please remember to "Delete File" after you download your session (if you forget, your file will be automatically deleted the next day for your security).
GCalToolkit for Windows stores your calendar "Sessions" on your computer. To access sessions users must log in to the correct Google account first, however, you should not consider the "Sessions" data to be 100% secure - if you want to remove all traces of your Google Calendars from your computer please use "Reset All Sessions" in the GCalToolkit "Options" menu.
