There are four occasions when the app will connect to your Google account to save the metadata of your photos/videos into the app’s local database:
By regularly connecting to your Google account we can ensure that the information that the app stores about your photo library is kept up to date. This means that when the screensaver or gallery starts we are showing you recent and relevant photos and albums.
There are three occasions when the app will download your photos or videos stored on Google:
While you remain logged in with your Google account within the app the following information is stored in a private database within the app. This data is not shared, uploaded or exported in anyway.
All this information is used to be able to display both the file and information about the file in the screensaver and gallery.
Photographs and videos will be cached temporarily by the app as they are displayed, but are never stored permanently.
When you log out of your Google account within this app, all the above information is completely deleted.
There is no sharing of any information in any way within the app. Everything is stored entirely on the users device.
