Data processing by our products or services

Our main mission is to help you process your data faster. We have created a lot of add-ons for Google Workspace that may be your favorite tools to get the result faster and easier, like Merge Sheets, Remove Duplicates, Doc Tools, etc. Some of them can be set to run on schedule even when you're offline. Obviously, whatever add-on you choose, it has to get access to your file to get the job done. After installing the add-on, you’ll get a list of permissions required by the tool, like this:
Please note, all those permissions are related to the add-on which is stored and launched on the Google servers, runs on your PC / Mac / Chromebook.

We do not analyze, store, or share any data from your files

All your files are stored under your Google account on Google servers. The source code of our add-ons is reviewed and approved by Google.
When you manually work with our Google Workspace add-ons, they are running on Google servers and in your browser only. We don't collect, store, analyse or share any data from your files at all. No other programs, computers, people, servers and services have access to your files. So, you can be absolutely sure your files are transferred between your machine and Google servers. This process is managed, controlled, and secured by Google and you solely.
If you schedule add-ons to autostart, we have to process your data indirectly using our special service – Process Sheets, which is located in Google Cloud. We take the data only for your scheduled tasks and only at scheduled times; process it on our server in Google Cloud; and return the result back to your spreadsheet. Nothing remains on our servers: no mentions or traces of the data from your files. Hence, we do not store the data from your files, do not share it with anyone in any way, do not analyse it, do not use it for statistics.

The list of possible permissions for Google Workspace add-ons

See, edit, create, and delete all of your Google Drive files
Such tools as Remove Duplicates, Combine Sheets, Merge Sheets, etc. may access your Google Drive only when you ask them to copy or move the results to a new spreadsheet or when you pick files from your Google Drive to combine.
See, edit, create, and delete your Google Sheets spreadsheets
This permission allows our add-ons to process the data in your files (change case, merge and split records, find duplicates, build navigation panes, etc.) strictly in accordance with the options you choose. Your files are being processed within Google Workspace services exclusively.
Connect to an external service
Once in a while, the add-ons check if your Google account has an active subscription. For that, the tools send only your irreversible hashed email address and the license key (if you have one) to our licensing service.
View and manage data associated with the application
This service permission allows add-ons to save the settings you select solely on Google server. This way, each checkbox you check/uncheck will remain the same the next time you run the tool.
Display and run third-party web content
This one is required so you could see our icons, pictures, and other static resources that we store on Amazon Content Delivery Network.
