Your App’s Privacy
When you’re adding a new Shopify app to manage your affiliate program, it’s important to understand why you need to create a Partner API token and why PartnerJam needs to access your data (and which one).
Why do I need to provide Partner API token?
The connection between PartnerJam and your application (along with its data) is crucial for obtaining information about installs. We acknowledge your concerns about data sharing with other services. Hence, we designed PartnerJam with a strong focus on privacy, ensuring it only uses essential data.
Out of all the permissions offered by Shopify when generating a Partner API token, we need only one – "Manage apps."
This read-only permission is necessary to access app resources, including all app-related events such as installs, uninstalls, and charges. However, it's important to note that due to the Shopify limitations, this permission encompasses all public and private apps managed by your organization and the API token cannot be limited to a specific app.
We don't require any additional permissions, such as "Financials," we do not have access to your earnings, neither the current nor the historical ones. Our access is technically read-only and we can't make any changes to your account.
Once the connection between PartnerJam and your Shopify Partner account is established, PartnerJam periodically (every 4 hours) validates the accurate attribution of installations. It attributes installations to specific publishers if they originated from the affiliate link, which is the information we get from Shopify.
NDA as part of the T&Cs
By registering and using PartnerJam, you agree with its Terms and Conditions. These conditions also include an NDA section to assure you we will never share your data with any third party and neither use the data for any other reason except the correct attribution in ParterJam.
Who is the company behind PartnerJam?
PartnerJam has been developed by Digismoothie. We are Shopify app developers and saw the desperate need to build an affiliate management platform for SaaS developers.
We have been using PartnerJam to work with our partners, and after six months of internal usage, we think it's ready to be used by other app developers.
