    Considering Using Calendar, Mail and People

    Where do Calendar, Mail and People store the data I enter?

    Is it stored on the cloud??
    If so, should I be concerned about privacy??

    A more basic concern would be whether you want a full-featured client, and one where you know where the data is stored and which you can easily move to a new PC or back up... Mail has limitations.

    Cloud? It depends if you choose to download mail from the server, and if you wish to sync these across devices.

    It depends on how you set up Mail. IMAP vs POP3, download and delete from server or keep on server.

    I've not commented on the others- I don't use these myself. I use Thunderbird, but Mailbird is now better maintained.

    I was wondering more about the Calendar app.

    Are my appointments stored on the cloud?

    "I was wondering more about the Calendar app. Are my appointments stored on the cloud?"

    It is not that simple, and it depends on how you use those Apps and what is synced or not to your Accounts, and the Privacy Policies of those Accounts.

    The same would apply to any other Mail App, Calendar, or People/Contacts list. Fully featured or not.

    The Calendar App itself does not have to be synced to any Accounts server('cloud' storage). That is in the Apps Settings, Menu, Options etc, take a look that is the only way to find out.

    If you just want an electronic version of a piece of paper Calendar then none are of these are suitable as it is all too easy to configure them wrong.
