At Equator, we ensure that your data and intellectual property is protected. If you have questions related to where your data is stored and the security measures currently in place to protect it, then this post is for you. Ensuring your data security is important to us.

Below are frequently asked user-based questions regarding the current data security infrastructure of Equator LDI.

Is My Data Secure?

Yes, your data is secure. We protect the confidentiality and integrity of your information by implementing:

  • Separate Instances: An instance is created for you or your company, alone. This means that your data is housed in a separate environment, completely isolated from other customers.
  • Data Isolation: Any data you upload remains isolated within your specific instance. There is no way for data to cross-contaminate between different customers’ instances.

Is My IP Protected?

Absolutely. Your intellectual property (IP) is well-protected when using Equator LDI:

  • Exclusive Model Set: The model set is built exclusively on the data within your specific instance. This ensures that your data is not used to train any global models or datasets.
  • Data Isolation During Interactions: Questions and responses created while interacting with our content discovery tool remain isolated to your instance.

Data Privacy at OpenAI

Equator LDI uses OpenAI API for the content discovery (file search) feature. The OpenAI API does not train on customer data by default. OpenAI has stated that their goal is to build helpful AI models while maintaining high privacy standards, including:

  • Focused Training: They use training data to help their AI models understand and respond to language, but they do not actively seek out personal information.
  • No Personal Profiling: They do not use public information from the internet to build profiles, advertise, target individuals, or sell user data.
  • Dynamic Response Generation: Their models generate new responses each time they are asked a question. They do not store information for future recall or “copy and paste” from training data.
