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. 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 collect, store, or share any data from your files. At all
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. It is running on Google servers and in your browser only. No other programs, computers and people, servers and services, whether ours or third-party, 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.
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.
Special categories of information
We do not ask you to provide, and we do not knowingly collect, any special categories of Personal Data from you, such as Personal Data that reveals your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade unions membership, or data concerning your health, or sex life, or sexual orientation, or history of criminal convictions.
