We built this add-on with enterprise security top-of-mind. Our specs are the following:

Scopes: We limit the scopes requested only to what is absolutely necessary. Currently, this means just the active Slides file. We take any decision to increase scopes very seriously and never plan to ask for wide scopes such as reading + writing to Drive

Data: We do not log any of your company's private data, i.e. we *never* get any pieces of the contents of the file. The add-on does implement Google Analytics event tracking - however, all users are identified only by an anonymized hashed string, and only feature usage, not file contents, are logged. For example, we log things like "4 clicks on the 'align-left' button" or "user with hash of [random digits/characters] clicked on 'align-top' and 'center-all' buttons". This is to aid in bug detection and future feature development.

Further: We would be happy to walk you through a code-level inspection if there are any further questions about this add-on. We have experience working with enterprise customers and understand the importance of enterprise security.
