Data Usage and API Access

Montaro leverages the Amazon Selling Partner API (SP-API) to enhance your experience by providing comprehensive and real-time information on sales, inventory, and traffic reports. The integration with the Amazon Selling Partner API will allow Montaro to access and retrieve data directly from the Amazon marketplace, ensuring accuracy and timeliness in reporting.

As part of our commitment to safeguarding data and ensuring the security of our operations, Montaro places a paramount emphasis on implementing robust security practices for accessing the Selling Partner API (SP-API). We adhere to industry-leading standards and protocols to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the data exchanged with Amazon. Montaro employs secure authentication mechanisms, such as OAuth 2.0, to authorize and authenticate API requests, ensuring that only authorized personnel can access and interact with sensitive information. Additionally, we implement encryption protocols for data transmission, utilizing HTTPS to establish secure connections between our systems and the Amazon API endpoints. Regular security audits and assessments are conducted to identify and address potential vulnerabilities promptly. Montaro is committed to staying informed about emerging security threats and promptly applying necessary updates and patches to maintain a resilient and secure SP API integration. Our comprehensive approach to security reflects our dedication to maintaining the trust and confidence of our customers while ensuring compliance with Amazon’s security requirements.

Montaro will never aggregate data across our customers’ businesses to provide or sell to any parties. Further, we do not promote, publish, or share insights about Amazon’s business.
