Privacy Policy


At big-AGI, we believe in transparency, privacy, and the power of open-source solutions. Our application stores data locally in your browser's "localStorage" and "IndexedDB" and, in some cases, on our servers. We strive to give you as much control as possible over your personal information, subject to the limitations outlined in this privacy policy.

For those who prefer even more freedom, big-AGI can be fully self-hosted, bypassing us entirely.

We also offer a free, "hosted" instance of big-AGI for demo purposes. To use this instance, users must provide their own API keys for certain functionalities. Rest assured, we do not collect or store these API keys. We also do not store any user conversations on our servers unless shared by the user via the "Sharing" function.

We have updated our privacy policy on April 26, 2024, to reflect recent changes in our application. These updates include the introduction of server-side storage and a "Sharing" function, alongside the expanded use of analytics tools such as Google Analytics and PostHog on this website, to enhance big-AGI and provide a more insightful and faster experience for our users.

This privacy policy will inform you about how we handle your personal data, your privacy rights, within the context of our hosted instance and website.

Information We Collect

We collect personal data that you voluntarily provide to us when you sign up for our next version, such as your email address. We also collect technical data automatically through our hosting provider, Vercel, and through Google Analytics, PostHog, and Vercel Analytics, as outlined in their respective privacy policies.

We use localStorage and IndexedDB to store chat logs and user preferences directly in your Internet Browser for operational purposes. This data is stored on your device and not on our servers.

For our "Sharing" function, we collect data including the chat data, owner ID, public status, data type and size, upvotes, downvotes, flag counts, read counts, write counts, expiration and deletion information, and creation and update timestamps.

We will only use your email address to notify you about the next version of our application and will not share it with any third parties.

How We Use Your Information

We use your personal data to provide and improve our services, and to notify you when our next version is ready. We do not sell your personal data to third parties. The data we collect for our "Sharing" function is used to enable users to share chat logs with others and for users to clone shared chats for their own use.

Data Retention

We retain email addresses for 24 months. We do not retain other personal data. Shared chat data is retained for a default period of 30 days or until the user requests its deletion. Upon user request for deletion, shared chat data will be permanently deleted from our servers within 7 days.

Technical data collected by third-party analytics services is retained in accordance with their respective privacy policies, which can be found in the 'Analytics' section of this document.
