Data Sharing Policy
This policy describes what types of data Intuit shares with third-party apps and developers, in order to provide meaningful, relevant, and useful information services that integrate with QuickBooks Online.
How is this information shared?
When you use third-party apps, or integrations that use, or are integrated with, our Services, those third parties may receive certain information about your QuickBooks account, including any updates you make to the information after you connect with the app. For example, when you update a description or invoice, the developer may get information about your activities. Information collected by these apps, websites, or integrated services is subject to their own terms and policies.
What types of data are accessed by apps?
Vendors, customers, and employees:
Apps help you manage your QuickBooks company efficiently, such as sending follow-up email to customers and vendors. Apps can access information of vendors, customers, and employees, who support your business. Developers or apps don't have any insight or access to personally identifiable information, including SSNs or EINs.
Time activity, and department data:
Apps help manage time tracking activity for your employees. To accomplish this, apps can access information related to time activity, employee, and other organizational data.
Employee, time activity, and department data:

Other information includes balance sheet, cash flow, tax summary, inventory valuation, profit and loss statement data.
Information about payments:
Apps can help you process payment transactions and record them in QuickBooks Online, store bank accounts and credit card details for repeated use, retrieve QuickBooks Online reports, and process or refund charges.To enable all these functionalities, apps need access to Echecks, bank account and credit cards. Apps can access credit cards they have added to the QuickBooks Online company. Apps do not have access to credit cards previously entered by you or accessed by other third-party apps connected to the QuickBooks Online company. In order for an App to post any charges using other credit cards they have not added, the App still requires you to provide that credit card information.
How can you manage your information?
You fully own your data, always. This data is shared with third-party developers whose services help QuickBooks Online customers manage their business more efficiently and effectively. This information is only used so the products can work meaningfully for you. You can choose to revoke access to any third-party app at anytime.
Only the Master Admin and Company Admin level users for a QuickBooks Online account can connect and manage apps.
If you ever have any concerns about an app and its use of data, you can always disconnect the app from the My Apps
page in QuickBooks Online.
