Privacy Policy for zetaMerge

Last updated: July 16, 2022.

zetaMerge ("us", "we") operate zetaMerge add-on (the "Service") and zetaMerge website (the "Site"). This document informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information we receive from users of the Service and the Site. By using the Service or the Site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.

We believe privacy is a fundamental human right, so we use a Minimum Viable Data Collection policy. Only data essential for the execution of our service is collected and processed. We do not use your data to analyze traffic sources or any other personal information.

Both our website and the service run on Google platforms (Google Sites/Google Workspaces). This document does not cover and we are not responsible for data collected and processed by Google, which is subject to its own policies.

Information Collection and Use

What We Do:

The zetaMerge add-on transmits to a server, which stores and processes a minimum of data for each execution of our service, in order to maintain and verify the licensing status:

  • The user email address;

  • Execution date and time (timestamp);

  • Document name and ID;

  • Application (Docs/Spreadsheet);

  • Status (Success/Error);

  • The language setting of the current user —for example, "en" for English.

  • In case of an error in the execution of the service, the error message presented to the user will also be stored.

Only users who purchase a license will have to enter additional data on the licensing form and this will be stored and used to process payments and licensing.

What We Don’t Do:

    • We don’t record your IP address or your location.

    • We do not share any data with any third party unless required by law.

    • We never sell your personal information.

    • We will not send any spam, only essential messages for the service. You must explicitly subscribe to our newsletter (opt-in) for additional messages.

    • We disabled Google Analytics because we don't want to collect, monitor and analyze your traffic to our site.

What does zetaMerge add-on access from my Google account?

To run this add-on, you must grant the following authorizations (OAuth Scopes):

  • See, edit, create, and delete all of your Google Drive files: The only files that will be read will be your templates and data source spreadsheets. However, these files will not be modified by the zetaMerge add-on. We will create new files as a result of merging. Only temporary files created during script execution will be deleted. No other files on your Drive will be read, changed, or deleted.

  • See, edit, create, and delete all your Google Docs documents: We need access to your templates, and we will create only the new documents you request.

  • See, edit, create, and delete all your Google Sheets spreadsheets: We will read the data from the spreadsheets that you set up as a data source, without any changes or deletions.

  • Connect to an external service: We will access our server to manage user accounts and plans and also access the Google Drive API to convert the document to other formats such as PDF.

  • Send email as you: You can automatically send the generated documents as an attachment to an email message.

  • Display and run third-party web content in prompts and sidebars inside Google applications: This authorization is required to display the add-on interface in the Google Docs/Sheet sidebar.


Unlike many websites, we do not use "cookies" to collect information. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent. Some cookies are created by Google Sites, but we are not interested in them.
