Reader's question: Access & Security

We were asked a question by an anonymous reader.

How are you able to access analytics data - do you have a relationship with google or do users have to provide access? How private is our data in your hands?

Here is our answer:

You need a Google account with at least one website listed in Google Analytics in order to access your data using Bime. We use the Google API to access this data.

Security is our number one priority. We take all reasonable precautions to keep your information safe and secure. We don't store your data. We only store the way you want to analyze it. All Bime accounts include 128-bit SSL security – the same used by online banks. Whereas your data is stored in the cloud, in your computer or in your internal server, we rely on your datastore capabilities to access and perform analysis on this data.

I hope that answered your questions. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any more, or want to explore Bime further. We'd be happy to set up a free trial account for you.
