Data usage FAQ

Does Google use the document I send to the Document AI API?
Google does not use any of your content (such as documents and predictions) for any purpose except to provide you with the Document AI API service.
Will Google share the document I send to the Document AI API?
We will not make the document that you send available to the public, or share it with anyone else, except as necessary to provide the Document AI API service. For example, sometimes, we may need to use a third-party vendor to help us provide some aspect of our services, such as storage or transmission of data, who will be under appropriate security and confidentiality contractual obligations. We will not share the document that you send with any other parties, or make it public, for any other purpose.
Will the document I send to the Document AI API, the results or other information about the request itself, be stored on Google servers? If so, how long and where is the information kept, and do I have access to it?
When you send an document to Document AI API, we must store that document for a short period of time in order to perform the analysis and return the results to you. For asynchronous offline batch operations, the stored document is typically deleted right after the processing is done, with a failsafe Time to live (TTL) from a few hours to up to 7 days. For online (immediate response) operations, the document data is processed in memory and not persisted to disk. Google also temporarily logs some metadata about your Document AI API requests (such as the time the request was received and the size of the request) to improve our service and combat abuse.
How does Google protect and ensure the security of the data I send to Document AI API?
Please refer to the Google Cloud Platform Security page which describes the security measures in place for Google's Cloud Services.
Does Google use my data for improving Document AI?
Currently, Google does not use the content you send to train and improve our Document AI features such as its machine perception model.
Does Google claim ownership of the content I send in the request to Document AI API?
Google does not claim any ownership in any of the content (including documents and predictions) that you transmit to the Document AI API.
Can I resell the Document AI API?
No, you are not permitted to resell the Document AI API service. You can still integrate Document AI API into applications of independent value.
