Privacy policy

This Privacy Policy is meant to help you understand what information we collect and why, how data is classified and how you can delete it.

About Folgo

Folgo is an add-on for Google Drive letting letting you:

  • Connect to your drive to copy a folder structure and the files inside

  • Transfer ownership of a folder structure

  • List files within a folder structure in a report


This add-on is tightly integrated with your Google account and the data stored in said account.

Add-ons are created and powered by Google Apps Script, on Google servers.

Information gathered by an add-on will never be sold or shared to external people. When we need to store data outside of your Google account, we use a Google service for that: Firebase. Your data never leaves Google servers. We are only storing data in Firebase when needed to provide the service offered by the add-on. Most data collected by our add-ons are directly processed within Google Apps Script and are not saved in any database for later reuse.

Our App's use of information received, and App's transfer of information to any other app received from Google APIs will adhere to Google API User Data Policy, including the Limited Use Requirements."

Folgo can only be installed from the Google Workspace Marketplace and when installing, Google will prompt you to accept this policy: “By clicking Continue, you acknowledge that your information will be used in accordance with the terms of service and privacy policy of this application.

Acceptance of the policy

To remove the add-on access to your Google account, you must uninstall the add-on from the Google Workspace Marketplace (see “User Account Deletion”).

However, there is no automatic deletion of your user data in our database (Firebase). To get your data from Firebase deleted, please send your request to support@folgo.app and we will proceed to the deletion within 30 days.

Data Classification

Depending on its security impact, data is classified according to the five following categories:

  • Confidential data has the highest level of security. Only the user has access to it. To copy files and folders, Folgo requires full access to your Google Drive, but the content of all files from your Google Drive are strictly confidential and Folgo never reads that content.

  • Sensitive data is needed for Folgo to perform the service you are requesting from the add-on, and is never shared out of this scope. All sensitive data such as files and folders to copy or transfer, the copies generated by Folgo, the email addresses used to transfer ownership, and all metadata of your files and folders (titles, ids, urls, types, locations, paths, owners, editors, commenters, viewers, shared outsides, creation dates, last modifying dates, last update dates) remain under your control within your Google account.

  • Shareable data can be shared to specific people within the company. For example, the Folgo Support Team may ask users to share their Google Sheets reports for troubleshooting purposes. We will never keep a copy of your Drive documents' data and we strongly encourage you to remove us access to your files once your request has been addressed and resolved.

  • Public data can be shared as public records, like all the content published in this Folgo's website.

  • Private data belongs to individuals who are responsible for the maintenance and backup.

Uninstalling Folgo will interrupt all the add-on's functionality and activities on your Google account.

However, there is no automatic deletion of your user data in our database (Firebase). To get your data from Firebase deleted, please send your request to support@folgo.app and we will proceed to the deletion within 30 days.
