Permissions & Verification

The add-on has been reviewed and verified as safe by Google but it still requires your authorisation to use certain permissions on your Google account. These are explained below:

  • View and manage your forms in Google Drive. This permission is required as the add-on reads data from the form you install the add-on in and generates new translated forms. The add-on does access any other forms and the developer has no access to your form questions or responses.
  • View and manage your spreadsheets in Google Drive. This permission is required as the add-on creates a new spreadsheet to store the text translations. The add-on does not access any other spreadsheets and the developer has no access to your spreadsheet data.
  • View and manage the files in your Google Drive. This permission is required as the add-on can create new files in a Drive folder of your choice and another option to create Response Spreadsheets for the new forms it generates. The add-on does not access any other files and the developer has no access to your files or folders.
  • Connect to an external service. This permission is required as the add-on logs errors to an external error log service. No personal information of any sort is logged.
  • Display and run third-party web content in prompts and sidebars inside Google applications. This permission is required for the browser-based add-on sidebar to work. The add-on uses third-party libraries including jQuery to handle the interface elements.

You can review or revoke permissions at any time by visiting your Google account permission settings. However, if you revoke add-on permissions add-on will not be able to work.
