Google Authorization in OnSpend

We will never ask you for your account password, nor will we ask for any information that is not absolutely necessary for providing you with the services offered by OnSpend. We want to be transparent with how we use your data and request access to data only when access is required to provide the OnSpend services.

Certain access is only required when using specific features. OnSpend will only prompt you for feature-level access when those features are utilized. You can revoke OnSpend's access to your Google account at any time by visiting https://security.google.com and selecting Manage third-party access. Note: Revoking access to OnSpend may cause certain features to stop working. If you have any questions or concerns about OnSpend's use of your data or access to your account, please contact us.

When granting OnSpend access to your data, you may see the OnSpend service account (email@example.com) as an authorized service on your Google Cloud projects, or resources. Service accounts are treated similarly to how user access is delegated to projects and resources. The service account is granted appropriate access only with your consent. You may remove the service account access by navigating to the IAM & admin view in the Google Cloud Console. Keep in mind that removing or changing the OnSpend service account's access within the Google Cloud Console may cause certain features to stop working.
