Aqua Wave adheres strongly to the principle of least privilege and aims to collect the least amount of information necessary to provide its service. Different information is collected from each cloud provider's APIs, as is detailed below.

You have complete control over the permissions given to Aqua Wave via the cloud account connection security enforced by the cloud provider. If Aqua Wave does not have a required permission, it will simply mark the test with an "unknown" result but will not skip the scan entirely.
