The only data we collect from users of the plugin are the API parameters submitted to our server by ChatGPT or the demo web page. This may include parts of the question you submitted to either service. We do not collect any personal information or identifiers about users, such as names, email addresses, IP addresses, or any other information that could be used to identify individuals. We do not store any additional information about the queries or the users who submit them. The anonymous query data is only retained for a limited period of time to provide and improve the service.
We use the anonymized query data solely for the purpose of processing and generating responses within the Plugin, and for improving the service for everyone over time. We do not use this data for any other purposes, such as advertising, marketing, or profiling users.
We do not share or sell the anonymized query data to any third parties. We will only disclose the data if required by law, in response to a valid court order, or to protect our rights, property, or safety or the rights, property, or safety of others.
We take appropriate measures to protect the security of the anonymized query data. While we strive to protect your information, no method of data transmission or storage is completely secure, and we cannot guarantee the absolute security of the information we collect.
