In connection with the Google API services that we use for our LodgeiT application, we securely store authorization tokens that we obtain from Google API server when user authorizes LodgeiT and allows the access to his Google Account.

In order to perform improvement to the application, developers may need to share your information with other development team members; however, LodgeiT policies require that this type of sharing only be performed when (a) necessary to provide or improve user-facing features that are prominent from the requesting app’s user interface or (b) to comply with applicable laws.
