The widget developer has access to the number of downloads for each release of the widget. The developer does not have access to where each download originates.
By default the widget will not connect to the Google Calendar API. You need to click a link in the widget’s config that will open up a login form in your web browser. Once you have logged in, it will give you a “login code” to paste into the widget. The widget will then fetch your calendar, event, and task data from the Google Calendar and Google Tasks API. This data will be displayed in your KDE Plasma panel. The widget will periodically synchronize this data in order to keep it up to date. The user can also manually synchronize the data. The widget will store a cached list of your events/calendars/tasks locally on your computer so it can fallback to the cached copy when your PC is offline. The widget will also store a login/refresh token to in your widget config (
The developer has access to Google API’s application metrics for this widget. This allows the developer to see the total number of correct API responses, or errors, broken down by action. Some example actions are “fetch all calendars”, “fetch all events”, “create event”, “delete event”. The totals are not broken down by user. Each action has a sum of requests by all users. This is useful for knowing how close to the Google API quota the widget is, and if there are any spikes in errors. The errors are displayed as HTTP Error codes and do not expose any personal data to the developer.
