Is my data safe?

Your calendar data stays in your browser and does not leave your machine.

Syncing your calendar helps us:

  • Make recommendations based on your scheduled meetings.
  • Save events directly to your calendar.

These operations take place on the client side and do not leave the machine.

If you no longer wish to watch the course, delete the calendar invite on your calendar.

Here is how you can remove your information from the Schedule Reminder.
