Dates and Times

Since Loyale is built for global usage it stores dates and times in UTC format. Therefore developers making use of Loyale should be sending date times in UTC format as well. UTC is the standard of time used all around the world to regulate clocks, this format is used as it avoids confusion with time zones and daylight saving time. Converting from UTC to your time zone can be done by adding or subtracting the value from your time zone, e.g. Central European Summer Time is UTC + 2 hours, therefore converting to UTC is done by subtracting 2 hours from the current time.
