Security & Privacy
Templr.pro doesn't track usage.
When you use templr.pro, it runs within your Data Studio report. All data processing and visualization is performed within Google Data Studio.
Templr.pro neither stores data nor communicates with any external server or resource.
Just like any other community visualization, for templr.pro to work, access to Community Visualizations should be turned ON at the data source.
Due to Data Studio limitations, it's not possible to load external resources such as images or scripts from an external URL via templr.pro (or any community component).
