I was looking at some of the third party apps in Marketplace and am a bit concerned about the apparent lack of support for privacy.
When clicking to add any of the apps, there is a standard phrasing, which includes the name of the app:
Are all of the 3rd party apps at our own risk, as it were? What checks do Airtable do on apps before they are added to the Marketplace?
I’m thinking that this means my organisation won’t be able to use any non-Airtable provided apps…

The standard phrasing is more about Airtable’s lawyers than the actual privacy support. This standard text appears even in my app that reads no record data and sends no data over internet.
Airtable also does a fairly rigorous review of apps, including what outside services / network calls are used by the app.
You can read more about marketplace app requirements in the documentation.
If you are concerned about privacy, you can reach out to the app developer for more details to satisfy your company’s legal department. However, marketplace apps are safe to use.
