The bottom line
Macro is a Desktop app that works offline. It does not store your documents or send them to our servers. It does not have any vendor lock-in or proprietary file format.
Macro does not transmit nor have access to user documents, comments, document names, or other information that would be considered sensitive to our enterprise clients. After initial license activation, the software does not need internet connectivity and works offline. Even if you choose to integrate Macro with your DMS as described in configure and deploy, Macro cannot access your DMS or the documents therein.
Macro natively supports the PDF and DOCX (OpenXML) standard. This allows Macro to seamlessly interoperate with other apps (e.g., Word, Acrobat, Preview, etc.) and reduces change management. The Macro desktop application does not send user documents over the internet. Macro has no way to see the contents of your documents, the filename, nor any other identifying information.

Storage of data online
Very little data is transmitted from the app: our licensing micro-service only activates and keeps track of active users to ensure compliance with your license. This cannot be turned off. Please see Ongoing Support for more information.
