Creator Data Privacy

When collaborating with a brand via GRIN, they will ask you to authenticate your Instagram. This is the first step towards building a fruitful partnership with the Brand, and you can find out how to do so with our help article Connecting Your Instagram. See below for more information on authentication and what data brands can receive once you authenticate.

What is Authentication? 

Authentication is a secure process created by Meta, the parent company of Instagram and Facebook, to let creators safely share some account data with the brands you want to partner with.

  1. What data will brands have access to if I authenticate?

By authenticating with GRIN, you only give brands access to view performance metrics on posts that are associated with the campaign you are collaborating with them on.  

Brands will not be able to see data on your collaborations with other partners. Authentication does not share your password with brands, and does not give them access to post on your behalf or view your private messages. 

  1. Will this adversely impact the performance of my posts?  

No. Authenticating is strictly to give brands accurate post performance data so that they can properly compensate you for your work and measure success.

  1. Will brands be privy to the other brands I collaborate with?

No. We will not share any information about your partnerships with other brands.

  1. After authentication, will the brands that I work with get insights into my payouts?

No. We will not share any information related to your creator payouts or the terms of your brand collaborations. Authenticating will not adversely affect your negotiations with brands. 

  1. After authentication, will the brands I work with have access to my password?

No, your password is safe. Your credentials are not tracked by GRIN.

  1. Will authentication make me more vulnerable to hackers?

No. Authentication via a secure connection protects your data, reducing your vulnerability. Your credentials will not be tracked by GRIN or stored in any database. Authentication replaces your login credentials with a unique access token that GRIN uses to exchange data with Instagram and Facebook.
