Privacy Policy and Terms of Service

Help > Privacy Policy and Terms of Service

Here are some key points in about how we access your Slack workspace and your data.

Slack permissions we request, and how we use them:

We only request Bot level Slack permissions, which means we have no authority to access detailed user information or perform actions on behalf of users. 

These are the specific permissions we request from Slack during approval, and how we use them:


Join public channels in the workspace


View basic information about public channels in the workspace

Request Reason: To enable channel select function in forms and to read channels that the forms is a part of to know if it part of that channel or not


Send messages as @forms bot.

Request Reason: To send back the users submitted form as a response


Add actions and/or slash commands that people can use


We won't:
  • Store or view any of your messages or form responses.
  • Store any personal information on our database regarding names, emails or other personal information aside from information needed to carry out service expected. That includes your Team ID, securely generated and encrypted Slack access tokens with relevant scopes, subscription status and Slack User ID if that user has granted the app permission. 

    Please feel free to review the permissions you have allowed our app anytime and delete if you feel necessary. However this may disrupt expected functionality from the app. We encourage you to contact us if you or your team have any privacy or security related concerns via

    We use the Order Information that we collect generally to fulfill any orders placed through the Site (including processing your payment information, arranging for shipping, and providing you with invoices and/or order confirmations). Additionally, we use this Order Information to:
