Well most apps require some kind of access to these resources. Even if they don't use all the fields available in these resources, they'd still need the access scope which isn't very granular once you allow access to that scope. Shopify will not claim responsibility for data breaches or otherwise caused by vendors of 3rd party apps. This is entirely between you and the 3rd party. If you're within the EU and underly strict GDPR laws, I'd be more careful.

 

Personally, I'd not share an iota of customer information with any app - it just goes against my inner voice, privacy concerns for customers and knowing what kind of questions get posted around here by app developers, I wouldn't trust half of them with my junk email account. But my point of view on this topic is quite harsh - I realise - so yourself and others may disagree.

 

Also, if you're looking to allow customers to attach images to their orders, simply do it yourself - no need for an app. Add following code or similar to your Sections / product-template.liquid 

 

<div class="product-form__item product-form__item">            
  <label for="custom_image">Upload Image</label>
  <input required id="custom_image" type="file" name="properties[Uploaded Image]" class="product-form__input">
</div>

Style it as you need and if you wish to display the uploaded image in the customers' cart, you can achieve that as well - without an app. Of course, if your requirements are more complex, so will the implementation of this DIY solution. That's the trade-off.

 

Hope this helps!
