Description

Benefit
Manage telephone numbers and names in "Bury Contacts" to not disclose this personal data unauthorized or inadvertently to third parties. This may happen by using apps that read the entire address book.

Motivation
As a private person you can often neglect privacy, as an entrepreneur you are committed to privacy. From May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union (EU GDPR) is enforceable. Non-compliant organizations face severe fines.

Dilemma
To prevent the sharing of your business contacts, you can discontinue using suspicious apps or discontinue storage of business data in "Contacts".

Way out
Relocate business phone numbers and names of contacts in Bury Contacts.

Features
The App allows you to maintain a simple list of telephone numbers and names. Incoming calls are identified by the phone number. Known names are displayed on the call and in the recent calls log. Alternatively, call blocking is possible. "Bury Contacts" can be searched and dialed. The data is stored in a large, simple text field that is only stored on your iPhone. Copy existing data and paste it into "Bulk Load". Import. Done!

Background
Bury Contacts was developed by an entrepreneur accountable for the protection of the rights of individuals under Chapter 3 of the European Union General Data Protection Regulation. Some of the rights, such as the "right to be forgotten" (art. 17), can not be exercised as soon as data is passed on to inappropriate third parties. However, the material scope of the EU GDPR does not apply to "personal or family activities" (art. 2c). The idea is to use "Contacts" with third-party apps such as Messengers for private fun and "Bury Contacts" for business purposes.

Limitations
Bury Contacts is only a makeshift and not a replacement for "Contacts". It not even comes close to. You don't get much more beyond a label on a number for an incoming phone call. On iPhone display only. Not on Bluetooth or otherwise connected devices. No audio call announcement. No Siri. This App requires the latest iOS available for it's development platform iPhone SE. It should work on similar iOS/ iDevices. Do not expect great enhancements, intensive compatibility testing or great customer support. Maintenance will likely be discontinued once a better solution exists.
