CookDiary utilizes a internet connection if possible to check for program updates. No personal data is transmitted or collected while doing this. CookDiary connects optionally to  Microsoft SkyDrive to synchronize its data between different devices (PCs and smartphones). For this to be possible the user has to authenticate with his username and password of a Windows Live ID. No data is transmitted to softsentials by this. The synchronization is completely handled via SkyDrive. Even when CookDiary presents some data from SkyDrive to the user this information can not be accessed by softsentials.

CookDiary optionally collects and sends anonymous usage statistics to help improving the program. This option can be activated and deactivated at any time.
