Our General Approach
Conversational artificial intelligence is at the technological frontier. We believe that this emerging technology will fundamentally change the way that we engage with and think about computers in our everyday lives. Ultimately, our goal is to use AI to build safe, smart, kind, and engaging conversational partners.
Users deserve transparency regarding how that process works, particularly when it comes to their data. This Policy is one part of that transparency. It documents what data we collect, how we keep it secure, and describes how we use that data to improve our Services for everyone. Here are the top level points:
When you use Our Platform, we collect data including your name, phone number, and IP address. We use this data to run Our Platform, inform improvements to the platform, keep you safe, and comply with all applicable laws.
Keeping your conversations with Our Platform private and safe is our top priority, and we will never sell or share your data for advertising or marketing purposes. We have strict internal controls over the use of and access to user data.
You agree to follow our Acceptable Use policy. When you talk to Our Platform, you should not try to get it to talk about harmful, abusive, or illegal topics. You also should not attempt to evade our security measures or learn about the models, algorithms, prompts, or source code of Our Platform. If our automated systems detect this activity, you may be suspended.
You are not permitted to use Our Platform if you are under the age of 18.
Our Platform may make up facts, events, or advice. You should never rely on anything it tells you without double-checking the facts yourself or, if appropriate, talking to a professional.

Security is integral to the success of conversational AI: people need to trust that their data is being handled responsibly and safely in order to fully get the benefits of our Services.
Ensuring the integrity of your data is a major priority for us. GPTPODCAST has technical measures in place to protect personal information against unauthorized access, corruption, loss, or misuse. This includes internal measures that limit access to personal information to a dedicated set of specialist employees working on improving the safety or quality of our Services. Where possible and appropriate, we also deidentify sensitive data like conversational logs to preserve user privacy.
However, these measures are not a guarantee of absolute security and you acknowledge and accept that your use of our Services is ultimately at your own risk.
Also, please note that you are responsible for managing access to any accounts that you maintain with GPTPODCAST. Failure to limit access to your devices or browser might enable third-parties to have unauthorized access to your personal information.
Third-Party Websites and Content
Please be advised that you may encounter links or content through our Services that are provided by third-parties that GPTPODCAST does own or otherwise control. You acknowledge that any data you provide to these third-parties shall be governed solely by the terms of service, privacy policies, and other terms applicable to those third-parties.

Where required under applicable laws, we retain personal information only for as long as is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected and processed, in accordance with our retention policies, and in accordance with applicable laws and regulatory obligations or until you withdraw your consent (where applicable).
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of personal information, the purposes for which we use personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal and regulatory requirements.
