1. What do we do with your information?
When you install one of our Google Docs Add-ons, you grant us access to your email address and the contents of the document that you are currently editing. When you use the extension, we also track your usage with Google Analytics and Hotjar, so that we know how many users we have, their approximate location and how they interact with our software.
We need access to your current document in order to check its spelling. No text is stored on our servers and the only thing we log is the types of spelling mistakes our users make most frequently so that we can improve the functionality of our spellchecking engine.
Your email address is sent to us only when you authenticate the extension with a license key purchased directly from us. We need an unique identifier to simplify the management of your license key and make sure that only you and the people you choose can use it.
How do you get my consent?
When you install one of our Google Docs extensions, you will be prompted to agree to our terms before you can use it. If you decide to purchase a license key, we might need more information depending on the size of your order.
Purchases made on our website are processed automatically and, if you want, you can create an account in order to handle your subscription on your own. If you decide to create an account, you will need to create a username and password. Your name and email is required for all purchases on our website.
Any credit card information is encrypted and sent over a secure SSL connection to Stripe who hadles the payment.
How do I withdraw my consent?
If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent by following these steps:

We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.
Our extensions for Google Docs are hosted on Google’s servers. You need a Google account to use our extensions and by doing so you also agree to their terms.
5. Third-party services
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
When you click on links on our store, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.
To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.
If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and sent to our payment gateway provider. No credit card information is stored by us.
The extension’s settings are stored on Google’s servers using the PropertiesService API. Only you have access to your saved settings.
