External application with own Authetication accessing Shopify API

I am working on an embedded app which will need some elements to be non embedded.


For example, I will have an external application, with it's own users/authentication which is entirely seperate to the shopify store.


The embedded app will access and update data from this external application.


What I want to know is:

  1. Is this kind of architecture within Shopify policies?
  2. Will it be possible for this external application to access the Shopify API, keeping in mind that this external API has it's own authentication, and it is not for a Private App.
