Information Collection And Use

Tidis Ventures LLC ("us", "we", or "our") operates the Image Scribe Google Docs Add-on (the "App"). This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information we receive from users of the App. By using the App, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.

The App is an add-on that works with Google Workspace that:

  • Allows you to upload an image to the browser.
  • That image is then processed in the browser and then the information is sent to Microsoft Azure Cloud and OpenAI servers that extracts and processes the text from the image.
  • When the text is extracted and processed, the data is sent back to the App to be inserted into your Google Doc.
  • Tidis Ventures LLC does NOT store any information about the image, the text, or the image file itself. Data sent to Microsoft Azure Cloud and OpenAI are subject to their respective privacy policies.
  • Sends your email address to a secure, remote Digital Ocean server that hosts our database of users.
  • Your credit card information is NOT saved anywhere on our servers and we do not have access to that information at any point in time. All payment transactions are handled securely by Stripe.

When installing the add-on from the Google Marketplace, you will be prompted to authorize different permissions to your Google account. Those authorizations will only be used to perform the service you are requesting from the add-on you have installed.

To revoke those permissions that you've granted to the App, you must uninstall the add-on.

Information gathered by the App will never be sold to external third parties. We only store in our remote database data that is absolutely needed to provide our users the service offered by this add-on.

Data Storage

Data We Store:

Upon installing and purchasing the add-on, we store the following data:

  • Your Google account email address
  • Payment transaction IDs that were returned from the Stripe API. Again, Stripe is a third party service that we utilize to securely process all payments.
  • The date on which your subscription was activated

Data We Do NOT Store:

  • Your images or any uploaded file
  • Your text that was extracted from the images
  • Your Google Docs data, whether it's in your Drive or in the Google Doc itself
  • Your Google Drive data


Tidis Ventures LLC and Image Scribe may send you marketing and advertising communications to update and relay information about our latest products.

Data Shared with Third Parties

In order to perform the processing tasks on the text extracted from the your images, the App sends the extracted text to OpenAI via its API. OpenAI is the company that operates ChatGPT, a large language model (LLM) that can do many text processing tasks like translation, generate text, etc.

If you do not wish to share your extracted text and any textual information in your images to OpenAI, you must deselect this setting in the App.

Please see OpenAI's privacy policy for information on how they handle data.


The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
