Mixmax Permissions

We’re committed to keeping your data secure and your private information private and being transparent about our practices.

For transparency, to provide all of the enhancements that make Mixmax amazing, we need to work with your Gmail inbox. For any type of application that interacts with Gmail, users must grant permission for certain rights and access.

For your peace of mind, below is a list of actions users grant Mixmax permission to perform and how we utilize each item. Feel free to also review our Privacy Policy and terms of service.

Read, send, delete, and manage your email

Mixmax requests these permissions so we can provide you with features like open, click, and reply tracking, send later, and calendar scheduling within an email. This is the name of the Google permission; Mixmax does not have the ability to read email in your inbox. This uses the permission scope.

Manage your basic mail settings

Mixmax needs access to your mail settings so we can honor your existing preferences, including undo send, email aliases, and email signature. This uses the permission scope.

See, edit, download, and permanently delete your contacts

When you email new people, Mixmax will save them in Google Contacts so they'll show up in the To field the next time you email them. Mixmax also enables you to create contact groups based on your Google contact groups. This uses the permission scope.

See, edit, share, and permanently delete all the calendars you can access using Google Calendar

Mixmax enables you to quickly set up meetings via email by offering times when you’re available; after your recipients choose a time, we schedule the meeting on your Google calendar. If they cancel a meeting, we'll remove the meeting for you. This uses the permission scope.

View users on your domain

Mixmax requests access to view other users on your email domain. This is so we can show them as contacts in the To field when typing an email, even if these users do not exist in your Google Contacts. This uses the permission scope.

See, edit, create, and delete all of your Google Drive files

Mixmax enables you to attach files from Google Drive. This uses the permission scope.
