Analytics Edge Products
The Analytics Edge Add-in and Connector products are software packages installed locally on your computer, like Microsoft Excel. They do not have a server-component and do not share user, query or downloaded data with any other computer or service.
The Analytics Edge Add-in and Connector products you install provide direct access between your computer and your data on the web service you connect to (for example, the Google Analytics API service). Analytics Edge Add-in and Connector products use the latest, most secure connection mechanism available; in most cases, this is using Oauth2 access tokens. All of your credentials or access tokens are encrypted using industrial-strength AES encryption and are stored locally on your computer. They are saved in configuration files on your computer, not in your workbooks, so you are free to share report spreadsheets without security concerns.
Data Transfer Security
All data and queries are transferred directly between the web service and your computers using the most secure mechanism provided by the service; in most cases this is SSL-encrypted HTTPS connections. At no time are your queries or data exposed, or available to, Analytics Edge Inc (the company).
Product Usage Tracking
Analytics Edge products are available in free and paid versions, but all products are licensed for use. The licensing algorithm identifies and tracks usage by the computer that the software is installed on. The products track several user interface interactions for product improvement purposes. At no time does this tracking record, expose, or access your saved account credentials, queries or the data returned.
When you register Analytics Edge products, you may provide an email address to activate the product. When you purchase a license, you may also provide an email address. Analytics Edge Inc (the company) uses these email addresses to contact you regarding your use of the product. We will not share it with anyone, nor will we use it for any other purpose without your prior approval (subject to legal disclosure requirements).
Managing Your Information
To change the email address associated with your computer installation, open the License wizard, select the add-in (top row), enter your new email address and click the Activate button. If you have stopped using the product and want your email removed, send a request to email@example.com. Emails will be deleted automatically 12 months after your last product usage.
Analytics Edge Website
The Analytics Edge website uses Google Analytics to track visitor behaviour in an anonymous fashion. You may opt-out of this tracking by using a Google Analytics opt-out.
