The appearance of the link gives us a certain idea about you. For example, we may target certain Google Workspace users in external advertising platforms.

Once you install the app, you give us relevant permissions to access the data about your company and your users.

We use the Google Workspace Admin platform to push signatures to your employees and also for grabbing all relevant information about your company in Google Workspace to our system. We use this information solely for signature management purposes.
You may edit some of the information related to your company in Google Workspace from our platform. For example, you may edit personal details of your employees, their groups and organization units, company information from our web app. We will use those changes only for the creation of signatures and we do not push the modified data back to your Google Workspace account. We may also get the new updated data once you press the import button.
For the seamless work of our application we access, collect and store the following data from your Google Workspace Admin account:
- User/admin profile details: such as full name, email, phone number, address, organization name, etc
- Employee details and users of a domain: first and last name, email address, phone number, mailing address, department name, assigned group, and organizational unit of all employees active in G Suite account
- Details about groups: such as a list of group names and group subscriptions. We will also access the data about which employees belong to which group
- Organizational units. We collect names and descriptions of organizational units, their nested hierarchies, and the information about members of organizational units
- User schemas on your domain. We can view certain details (e.g., custom field names and types) of user schemas on your domain
- Basic Gmail setting. We can access the following basic settings on Gmail: primary email address, primary reply-to, display name and signature, view and manage filters
- Sensitive Gmail settings that include forwarding rules and aliases
Why We Collect Data from Google and What We Do With It
In order to start accessing and using our web app, you need a domain wide install of our app. We require you to have a super admin role in your domain. Once you are a super admin, we collect the minimum information we need from your Google Workspace mail account for the sole purpose of giving you a platform to seamlessly create and manage signatures. We request minimum permissions that our app needs. We do not access the contents of your email, and our platform cannot send messages to somebody else on your behalf. We can only view Gmail settings with restricted access. We mainly focus on the signature management part of your Google Workspace admin account and your users’ Gmail Settings.
We can do the following changes to your data:
- We can view the provisioning of users on your domain. We can view details of your users like: name, address, and phone number and metadata.
- The domain-wide install allows our app to view all the users in your domain. If you want to disable our app from accessing the user details of some org. units, you may do so by contacting us. For example, if you are a super admin in a public school system, you may disable our web app from receiving the personal data of minors (students). We will then tweak our app so that while importing the users in your company, it will not access the students’ organization unit.
- Important note about troubleshooting: We do not modify your user’s details unless we have require to do so for troubleshooting purposes. We may import the updated user details from Google Workspace Admin console on your behalf. We may also push the signature you’ve setup earlier to your users. We do these actions only when you contacted us with an issue and only when there is a need for those actions to resolve the issue.
- Manage basic mail settings. We can modify, reset and delete signatures from the basic Gmail settings part of you and your domain users. We can also reassign the signatures to your users on a daily basis.
- We may do so because while installing the BulkSignature app you authorize our bot to setup the signatures every day. However, if you do not want us install signatures for your users daily, you can turn off this function at Settings menu.
- You can disallow our app to access basic mail settings of some of your users in Google Workspace Marketplace Admin console. If you do so, our app will not be able to access the user and install the signature. The app will still be able to get the user details through import button, but it will not be able to change their settings.
- We can view the groups, organizational units, user schemas. We do not offer the capability to manage or update group memberships or organizational units on our app.
We store the data about your account securely in our databases. We do not sell your data to third parties (please refer to the disclosure section of this document below for exceptions). We follow the best industry standards and security protocols in protecting the data from unauthorized access and hacker attacks.
Sometimes our admins may access your BulkSignature account for troubleshooting purposes. We take all the precautions to do it as securely as possible. We use encrypted access keys which auto-expire for those purposes.
Interaction with Third Party Services

2. Payment Collection
We will use third-party external payment processing apps like Stripe to receive payments securely from our customers. We use Stripe in a form of API to enable our web app to process payments by credit card securely.
We do not store your credit card data anywhere. Our credit card payment collection form comes as an I-frame from Stripe.
The data Stripe collects in I-frame: card details (Card number, Expiration date, Cardholder name, security code, zip code).
The data we receive is a success message or an error message with payment details.
3. Web Hosting
