The Michaelis Brasileiro 4.0 uses Apple's iCloud and Google's Google Drive services to save or restore a backup of the dictionary's preferences, notes, history and favorites, according to the user's explicit request when using the buttons “Salvar na Nuvem”, “Recuperar da Nuvem” or “Apagar da Nuvem” in the application, subject to the following policies:

Michaelis Brasileiro 4.0 for iOS

The only information stored in the user's iCloud is the backup of the dictionary's preferences, notes, history and favorites. This storage doesn't affect the availability or the available space in the user's iCloud account.

The storage is managed by Apple itself, and neither A&H nor any other third party has access to it. The ability to access the information is restricted uniquely and exclusively to the application, and only for and by the user that purchased it.

The iOS version doesn't collect, access or transmit any personally identifiable information about the user in order to access the iCloud service.

For more information, check Apple iCloud's privacy policy.

Michaelis Brasileiro 4.0 for Android

The only information stored in the user's Google Drive is the backup of the dictionary's preferences, notes, history and favorites. This information is stored in a hidden folder (called application data folder) and it doesn't affect the availability or the available space in the user's Google Drive account.

The storage is managed by Google itself, and neither A&H nor any other third party has access to it. The ability to access the information is restricted uniquely and exclusively to the application, only for and by the user that purchased it, and just for the application's hidden folder.

In order for the application to have access to the backup of the dictionary's preferences, notes, history and favorites in Google Drive, it's required an explicit consent from the user through OAuth 2.0 authentication and the scope https://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive.appdata. No information about the user is stored or transmitted by the application for this operation.
