4 – Doesn’t ChatGPT use all the inputs we give it (including our inventions) for its model training?

Our platform IP Author uses ChatGPT via its Application Programming Interface (API). It is important to note that this service is not offered for free by OpenAI, the company that developed ChatGPT. To use OpenAI’s API, we must adhere to their terms and conditions, which can be found at https://openai.com/policies/api-data-usage-policies.

  • OpenAI guarantees that any data submitted by clients through their API will not be utilized to train or enhance their models unless explicitly permitted by the client.
  • Additionally, OpenAI will retain all data sent through the API for a maximum of 30 days to monitor for any misuse or abuse, after which it will be deleted (unless required by law).
  • Clients own the input and output of the models, as stated in the API agreement which is available at https://openai.com/policies/terms-of-use.
