clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your information.
What personal information do we collect from the users?
SpotMyStatus connects your Slack and Spotify accounts and syncs them. To do so, very granular and minimal permissions are requested.
From Spotify SpotMyStatus requests user-read-playback-state scope. As a result, the app has a permission to
- Read user's name and username, profile picture, how many followers user has on Spotify and their public playlists - default
access token is requested
- Read access to a user's player state - to check if user is currently playing a track
- Read user's currently playing content and Spotify Connect devices information - to get current track and currently
connected devices, so that user can pick devices to sync from
From Slack SpotMyStatus requests
- chat:write: Send messages as @spotmystatus
- commands: Add slash commands that people can use, e.g. @spotme
- users:read: View profile details about people in a workspace. Necessary to get required information about user, e.g.
user's presence, status and timezone
- users.profile:read: View a user's profile information, including their custom status
- users.profile:write: Edit a user’s profile information and status
How do we use your information?
Information requested is purely used to synchronize status and nothing else
How do I add this to my Slack?
You should visit SpotMyStatus home page and click the large button. You will be first redirected to your Slack workspace and
then to your Spotify account to give SpotMyStatus necessary permissions
How do we protect your information?
Both application and the data are hosted by Amazon Web Services. They are protected by AWS security standards. Additionally,
there is an extensive monitoring and alarms set in place to detect any suspicious activity
What data does SpotMyStatus store?
SpotMyStatus is built to store a minimal amount of information from a Slack workspace. To make the service work, we store:
- Slack access token
- Spotify refresh token
- User's timezone to detect user's work hours
- User's spotify devices to ignore tracks playing from excluded devices
Finally, contents are not shared with any third parties in any way.
How do I get my data deleted according to GDPR regulations?
There are several ways to delete your data in your Slack workspace
- Call the command @spotme purge
- Invoke a SpotMyStatus window via @spotme command and click the purge button
- Open SpotMyStatus Home tab and click the purge button
You can remove SpotMyStatus from your Slack workspace completely in Slack's
Manage Apps tool.
