Application Data

The use of data within the application is strictly concerned with the running of the Service. Our application saves essential login information for OAuth2 authentication which ensures highly secure account creation and management for each user.

Google Cloud Access & BigQuery Processing

In addition to authenticating with our Application, users are required to authenticate with Google Cloud Services, specifically Google BigQuery in order for our application to access their Google BigQuery accounts, projects and datasets.

FlatQuery's use and transfer of data fully adhere's to the Google API Services User Data Policy, including the Limited Use Requirements.

You can find more information in the Limited Use Requirements section of the OAuth API Verification FAQ.

Under no circumstance does FlatQuery ingest, store or cache any data stored within or processed through a user's Google BigQuery. Any data contained within BigQuery is accessible solely by the account holder through the BigQuery interface and any other third tools they choose to use, not FlatQuery.

FlatQuery does not access any data from BigQuery or any other Google Cloud Service. FlatQuery sends instructions to BigQuery to shape the existing data held within in order to manipulate and move it between new and existing datasets and tables. All ingestion of FlatQuery's SQL queries and actual processing of the user’s data in response to them is handled solely by BigQuery, the service provided by Google Cloud.


In addition to Performance and Tracking cookies stated above, we also use authentication cookies which keep users logged in to the Service between web sessions.
