Third Party App Permissions Question re: Customer Privacy

96 0 5

Can a third party app/Is it possible for a third party app to access customer data if that app does not request permission to access customer data during installation? Here's an example of Mega Menu's permissions during install...can they still access customer info or does shopify permissions prevent this?


"Mega Menu will be able to:

  • View Shopify account data
    View details


  • Manage products
    View details


  • Manage your Online Store
    View details

It doesn't look like this app can access your customer data directly. However, 'Manage Online Store' means they can add a script to your store's front end. That script could potentially collect data about visitors to your site. The developers of that app would probably be best equipped to tell you if that's the case.
