How is my data processed? Is it used to train models?
  • We do not read or store any data from your workbook that you do not use as an input.
  • We send your inputs to the relevant AI provider’s API and we display the resulting outputs in your workbook.
  • If you use a model with your own API key, we do not log or store any of the inputs submitted or outputs received.
  • If you use a model without your own API key, we log all the inputs and outputs for support purposes for a duration of 30 days. We then store them for 5 years to comply with applicable law, enforce our terms and policies, keep our Service safe and for product improvement purposes (excluding the training of any language model).
  • Whether you use a model with or without your own API key, Talarian does not use your inputs and outputs to train language models.

To check the AI provider’s models available with or without your own API key, please see our list of supported models.
