While Please Sign Me requests permission to access the full contents of users’ Gmail inbox, this is because the Apps Script development framework offers us no workable alternative of more limited scope. These access rights are required to allow actions performed by the end user, and in no case are the textual contents of users’ emails transmitted to any third-party services outside of the user’s direct control or knowledge.
All personally identifiable information that users may keep in files associated with this tool remains in the complete control of those users from a privacy perspective. Unless specifically stated, we store no personally identifiable information in any third-party database or file repository.
“Confidential Information” means all non-public information disclosed in written, oral or visual form by either party (the “disclosing party”) to the other (the “receiving party”). Confidential Information may include, but is not limited to, services, pricing information, computer programs, source code, names and expertise of employees and consultants, know-how, and other technical, business, financial and product development information. Confidential Information does not include any information that the receiving party can demonstrate by its written records (1) was rightfully known to it without obligation of confidentiality prior to its disclosure hereunder by the disclosing party; (2) is or becomes publicly known through no wrongful act of the receiving party; (3) has been rightfully received without obligation of confidentiality from a third-party authorized to make such a disclosure; or (4) is independently developed by the receiving party without reference to confidential information disclosed hereunder.
Neither party will use any Confidential Information of the other party except as expressly permitted by this Agreement or as expressly authorized in writing by the disclosing party. The receiving party shall use the same degree of care to protect the disclosing party’s Confidential Information as it uses to protect its own Confidential Information of like nature, but in no circumstances less than a reasonable standard of care.
The receiving party may not disclose the disclosing party’s Confidential Information to any person or entity other than to those of its employees and contractors who: (i) are subject to a written agreement with the receiving party that includes use and confidentiality restrictions that are at least as protective as those set forth in these Terms, and (ii) need access to such Confidential Information solely for the purpose of fulfilling the receiving party’s obligations or exercising the receiving party’s rights hereunder. The foregoing obligations will not restrict the receiving party from disclosing Confidential Information of the disclosing party: (1) pursuant to the order or requirement of a court, administrative agency, or other governmental body, provided that the receiving party required to make such a disclosure gives reasonable notice to the disclosing party prior to such disclosure; and (2) on a confidential basis to its legal and financial advisors.
