How BIME uses Google Analytics data

BIME will access Google Analytics data via the Google Analytics API using OAuth (Open Authentication). OAuth allows users to share their private resources (in this case Google Analytics data) stored on one site with another site without having to give out their username and password.

Using OAuth, a Google Analytics user can grant BIME Analytics a revokable access token which can only be used to access Google Analytics data. A user can revoke the granted token by visiting https://www.google.com/accounts/IssuedAuthSubTokens.

BIME will use the granted tokens to:

1. launch interactive queries created by users

2. create interactive dashboards

3. mix Google Analytics data with other sources such as Google Spreadsheets and Google BigQuery
