When using the Sign in with Google feature, we understand that it can be intimidating to deal with the Google permissions screen that appears. We would like to help address those concerns, and explain the different eKadence and Google permissions settings.

The permission screen may ask you to acknowledge and allow some of the following behaviors/features listed below. Please see each section below for a further explanation and details:

See your files

    eKadence only accesses files that you choose to embed from your Google Drive. Checks are always put in place inside eKadence, to ensure that your files are secure and safe.

Upload and download your files

    Just like seeing your files, eKadence only reads and writes files when Google items are embedded into the site. For example, if a student creates some work in their Google Drive, we do not see it until they have submitted it as an assignment in eKadence. eKadence also has many checks put into place, to ensure that every user's files are safe and accessible to the correct user.

Delete files

    eKadence does not delete any Google Drive files. This permission is automatically added to the list by Google, as a default extension of having permission to write files.

See the names and emails of people you share files with

    This permission is a default Google permission. eKadence will only be able to see your email address and your name, as well as those you share files with. eKadence will NOT have access to your email or personal messages.

Share and stop sharing your files with others

    Once again, eKadence has the ability to do this, but will never allow it to happen to you. Our staff is well trained, and eKadence has special guidelines in order to prevent this from happening.

Remove people from your files

    As a user, you will be the only one that can share or remove other users from your files through Google Drive. Unless requested, you will be the only one able to do so, as eKadence staff will never add or remove other users from your files.

Organize your Drive

    This is another permission that eKadence has the ability to do, but will NEVER do so, unless specifically requested by the user.

*Please do not add private information to your eKadence Google Drive. Valuable information should only be added into your private Google Drive*

Google Calendar Permissions

The Google Calendar Permissions are very similar to the Google Drive Permissions. These permissions make it possible for eKadence to access, but eKadence does not touch the user's files. All of the listed permissions will only take place through the user's account, and eKadence will have nothing to do with any user's calendars. eKadence's policy guarantees the safety of each user's information, and will never be leaked to other users. Please do not use eKadence accounts to insert personal information/events onto the Google Calendar; for those matters, we urge users to utilize a separate/private Google Account (outside of eKadence).

Confirm your choices 

Now that you have read through the permissions, the final step will be to check the two boxes at the bottom of the list, confirming that you have agreed to eKadence's terms and conditions. Finally, click Allow, and you will be granted access to use your eKadence account, which will also be linked with your Google Account.
